Hi EVERYONE.

I have an old laptop ( acer aspire 5740) its motherboard is dead so i was planning to get a replacement motherboard for it. I am able to find two motherboards on aliexpress.

Question is that under the specifications tab one seller shows that the chipset is intel x99 but i know the chipset of this laptop has intel hm55 and even my old mobo has intel hm55.

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between those two chipsets. Also my laptop could support maximum of 8gb of ram so will this x99 chipset not allow me to upgrade to 8gb of memory? I am asking because of the change in chipset.

Also can someone guide me which is the better shipping option (aliexpress premium shipping) OR (dhl) and whats the difference between the two ?


The reason i wanted to choose the seller showing x99 because the shipment is aliexpress premium shipping because the other seller ships using dhl and i have heard people saying that dhl shipment had alot of issues.

LINK 1: SELLER WITH INTEL x99 CHIPSET AND ALIEXPRESS PREMIUM SHIPPING.

LINK 2 : SELLER WITH INTEL HM55 CHIPSET AND DHL SHIPPING.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32848217339.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.3adb3c00VgWw6w&mp=1

I dont see much reviews about these two links but i have no other choice because other sellers their motherboard specifications were completely wrong. so i found only these two to be almost close to old mobo specifications except the chipset thingy.

A quick reply is very much appreciated.

Thanks.
