I bought two non working boards. I fixed a trace on the back of this board I'm using now and it's fine. The other board had the LPCIO chip bashed in from a bad GPU install. Bunch of bent pins. I separated the pins, but I have to jump the board (power on switch doesn't work) off the LPCIO to get it to boot. So one is 100% working and the other is okay for a test bench.
If the Intel system had a gen 3 or older chip, you should be able to match the ram frequency with Vishera - the 4th gen was a pretty good leap forward and generally was capable of better ram clocks than Vishera.
My 4790k would run dommy plats at 2933mhz as a daily whereas the same kit on FX would peter out at 2650 without some extreme measures.
I've seen a 10 C drop in core temps yield 200mhz in stable overclocks with some chips, too bad you don't have better cooling. I've had a couple dozen FX's run through my hands and the only 8320 had 7 of the best cores and one of the worst and it just happened to be one the first module so I couldn't shut it off
