X2100: To everyone who preordered

The boards have arrived! The initial batch of i7-10510U motherboards has finally arrived.

Full build orders

To those who have ordered full builds, I’ll be contacting everyone one by one individually confirming the order and the address. Expect to hear from me within a week.

I’ll confirm 3 things:

  • If you want a touchpad (X201), or a non touchpad build (X200)
  • WiFi indicator light is confirmed not to work with AX200 (WiFi 6), so I’ll offer either the AX200 (WiFi 6, with no indicator light), or 7260AC (WiFi 5, with indicator light)
  • Extra ventilation holes pictured below:

I’ll begin shipping as soon as first/second week of June. Shipping is mostly first come first serve order.

Parts orders

For those who have ordered parts, I’ll do a full test of all the parts before shipment (4hrs stress-test and compatibility with every part). I’ll begin shipping with the same timeline as the full builds.

Performance benchmarks

I’ve written a new post on the performance benchmarks on both boards. Check it out here.

  1. In a thread on 51nb.com¹, someone mention the board takes DDR4 2400, 2666 and 3200. On reddit² you mentioned it only takes DDR4 2400MHz. Did you have a chance to try compatibility?

  2. Will (or can) the extra ventilation holes be covered on the inside by some kind of grill like the nine holes? I live with a few cats and there’s no shortage of cat hair in the air.
