For 5Euros each I couldn't resist - ZX H55-m ITX motherboard made by some unknown company. Its LGA 1156, but the manufacture date is late 2019, so I assume it's one of those motherboards made with recycled chips The guy I got it from assured me that it works, but even if not, for the price I'll take the gamble. Gotta love the branding on the box. Ordered a cheap Xeon off ebay for it and will pair it with a Radeon HD4890 for an ultimate SFF Win Vista build.
And a Xeon E3-1275. Used it to replace an i5 2400S in my home office work PC.
I find it weird how old Xeons in most cases are WAY cheaper than i7s and even i5s, despite being the best binned chips.

It's a longshot and to me it looks like one of hundreds, but does anyone recognise this particular i/o layout, and can make a guess at what type of board is in there. It's a woman selling it "practically brand new" (doubtface) but there's nothing to get a clue from whether it's anything useable apart from the shot of the back there. If it was in the city I'd just go look, but it's 30 mins and $10 worth of gas away...
edit: points against it being younger than about 10yrs old, no blue USB 3.0, no HDMI
Combined PS2 ports and a digital-only DVI port suggest that it might be 2010 era or newer.
