Xeon x3430 Build

Decided to build a cheap PC after watching the $7 CPU vid. A few questions:

Most of the ASUS motherboards from the AliExpress link say 8gb, but some 16gb. All are two slot but I see no other difference. I want to use two 16gb sticks. Can someone recommend a motherboard? LINK

I have two 8gb HyperX Fury sticks. Will these work?

What CPU cooler should I go with?  I don't mind buying new.


  • I'm looking at almost the same build, but I'm gonna go for the X3440 as it supports Hyper-Threading so it will be 4C/8T rather than the X3430's 4C/4T. Good find on the cheap-ish motherboard!
