    The Sapphire Pure Platinum H61 is the latest motherboard to be supported by mainline Coreboot for replacing the board's proprietary BIOS...

    How exciting. This is new enough (and I have an i5 laying around somewhere for this socket) that I'll probably end up buying a board if I can find one and have my first coreboot board. Hardware hacking ftw!
    Main System: Thinkpad E585, Ryzen PRO 2700U, Vega 10 GPU, 32GB RAM, 500gb SSD, Fedora KDE Workstation
    Server: Gigabyte Brix i7H-5500, i7 5500u, 16gb RAM, Fedora Server

      My GA-Z77X-UD3H was released in early 2012, the latest BIOS is still in beta. I frequently get system lockups in Linux, Windows and even my BIOS if I plug devices into my VIA USB controller. I really wish I could replace it with coreboot some day.

        That only means they had to push a fix for something by sidestepping quality control team, not that there will ever be a release.

        I'm probably very biased, but considering VIA's track record in total shit controllers and chipsets full of quirks, I think it's more likely to be a hardware issue you can't fix.
