added: I guess the next logical question is How many of those 2010 boards and cpu are still working ? 😁
my i7 920 retired in 2015 and got upgraded to a 6-core Xeon X5690 and from 3x2 to 3x4GB DDR-1600 CL8 all on the same Asus P6T board.
this has so far been my longest running system which I used over 9 years as my main rig and now continues to live as my go to Windows 7 PC 😀
9 years on the same platform, same motherboard even, just shows you how little was happening in the PC market due to intels dominance, and then came Ryzen 😀
I had a very short episode of X99 that I had many problems with before finally upgrading to Threadripper at the start of 2019.
