This might work way better with a custom bios, if anyone makes a custom BIOS. But then again, with so many different boards, I don't see how that would work.

It's a well known fact that these chips are used in 5G towers and are used to amplify Covid-19. Wake up sheeple.

I like how the yellow funnel he's using has a pointless sticker label on it called "funnel" as if he has aliens from another planet working for him that don't know what a fucking funnel is... lmfao

Do You remember asus adapter for pentium M (mobile pentium 3) to put it into desktop pentium 4 mobo. It was the end of pentium 4 because p3 1.5ghz was faster than p4 3ghz.

Remember it turned out that Intel happened to have a back door in their physical CPU's? Remember the hundreds of stories on "Intel patches remote execution hole"? Yeah, I'm sure these CPU's are fine though, China is our friend now. BFF's.

The Su's is attacking Intel from two sides. Mrs Su makes intel new cpus totally unatractive with Ryzen, Mr. Su makes old intel users loose interest to upgrading to new platform with these crazy weird CPUs.😝😝😝

I got a QL2x. Great CPU. With a small OC to 4.2Ghz it definitely beats a 7700K. And he runs pretty chill too!

I will not trust a ripped off Chinese imitation CPU that are found easily on some dark market in an alley somewhere in a poor town of China.Drawing tablets and 3D printers are ok but not CPUs.

Yea i just kinda did this with a backplate after taking a cooler off and putting a different cpu in and different cooler, was like, o, now i gotta hold the back plate on, almost failed with cooler install as i touched down like 4 times with the thermal paste and i almost scratched the motherboard with the cooler screws when the cooler kept slipping off as i had the pc tilted at a 45 degree angle when i attempted the install,,, lay the pc as flat as you can and then try all that shit LOL lesson learned but everything was ok in the end
