Asus Z9PE-D8 Owner's thread - Page 211

post #2101 of 2457
The problem is, the Windows 10 installer doesn't have an issue. It detects the drive perfectly fine, installs all the needed files and then reboots the system. This is when the BIOS doesn't allow the Intel 750 to be a boot device, and it can't load the OS to finish the installation after the first reboot. Rufus, as I understand it, wouldn't help... as it would only allow me to relaunch the ISO containing the installer, and not function as a bootloader to work around the problem...

I had to buy a BIOS directly from ASUS when I got my system, as the default BIOS couldn't detect my newer CPUs. So, the BIOS chip in my system is newer than the one it shipped with.

Welcome to my nightmare. smile.gif

Anyone running linux have working S3 resume? I had it working before, but now with the latest bios AND latest kernel, I can't get it to resume. Stuck on code E0, microcode not found. Not sure if there's a simple fix on my end for that.

I'm about back to stable finally, suspend being the last item on the list. I had a just barely bad DIMM and swapping the AMD card for this sweet GTX 970 has really cleared up a lot of things.

I am just stuck on microcode not found. I have a bunch of things to rule out software wise but i'm concerned it's the bios. If anyone has S3 resume working, what settings do you have in bios, acpi auto configure or what else??
stable again

may I suggest modding the bios by adding the proper NVMe modules - http://www.overclock.net/t/1571271/tutorial-how-to-add-nvme-support-on-any-ami-uefi-bios-with-an-intel-chipset

Hello.

Well I've just been given one of these boards and 2 xeons. Very happy boy hehe

However I have 2 problems if anyone can help me out please.

First off it seems slot 6 and 7 don't work? I've swapped the ram about (all sticks are the same) but still doesn't work. Could it be faulty? Seems odd that it's 6 and 7 and not just 1 or 2 together.

Second question is. I've got 2 corsair h80 fitted to them. 1 is nice and quiet and the second one's fans a at full speed all the time. Is there a way to control them with the board or any other programs?

Last question now. Can I disable the second CPU? I only game so there's no point in having the second CPU? Will save power and heat. Plus I can turn off the fans on the second h80 :-)


Any help on them 3 questions would be a great help.

Thanks


Just realised this thread isn't for my board. I have the WS not the D8

@lloyd:
Same thing here with S3 under Win7. Using the latest BIOS. Hibernate isn't working, correctly, too.

Will have to test a bit, but could be a simple BIOS bug. We'll have to see. Someone already reported this to ASUS?
I have only limited time for this at the moment.

We should check if the ACPI autoconfiguration option in BIOS somehow makes a difference. If this is a bug, it could be.

Hi,

Been a while since I visited this thread, so Hi to all!


Two questions, hopefully someone can confirm both.


One.

I am thinking about buying a gsync monitor. I have 4x GTX Tians ( older 2688 core)

The system is mainly used for 3ds max and production rendering with Iray, but occasional gaming.

I have read on this thread that there have been problems with 4-way SLI and surround set up's where only 2-way or 3 way SLI is selectable.

I don't use surround, but would the same problem happen with a g-sync monitor in 4-way sli?

4-way SLI works fine on my system, never had any problems, but never tried g-sync before.

Maybe what I am asking is completely illogical, but thought I would ask before purchasing the monitor.

Anyone using 4-way SLI and G-sync with this MoBo? Any problems?

Two.

I cant remember the exact date, but there was a windows update some time in December that included driver updates for the C602 chipset.

Before the update all 4 GPU's ran @ pcie Gen 3.0, after the update the primary card only runs at pcie 2.0 and the other three at pcie 3.0.

Tried lots of things, cant correct this. I am using The Nvidia control panel System info to check this, but GPU-Z gives the same info.

Obviously I already know how to apply the force enable Gen 3.0 Patch on the X79 platform in Windows 10 Pro x64, or it wouldn't have been working before the updates.

I've already checked the registry and the correct RMPcieLinkSpeed setting is there on all cards. Although I have always used the method of copying the force enable gen 3 exe to the main C drive and running it from the command line as administrator which is much simpler.

All pcie lanes are set to Gen 3.0 in the bios.

Anyone else found that their primary card in a 4 GPU set up is only running now at pcie 2.0 on the Z9PE-D8 WS?

Cheers!

• 2x Intel Xeon E5-2687W v2

• Asus Z9PE-D8 WS

• 3x SLI Titan X

• ASUS 27" PG278Q 3D

• 64GB DDR3 1866 CORSAIR Dominator Platinum (8x 8GB sticks)

Running Windows 10...

Yes as I am reading here it looks like I'm screwed. I'm running 3 ROG Swift Gsync monitors and I cant seem to get nvidia surround to work. Video cards do not seem to be able to perform as expected.

As soon as I go to nvidia surround it gives me a "connection error" even though (according to nvidia support) everything is connected correctly.

Is there any hope for this, anyone else having this issue? Or is there no choice but to roll back to roll back to Windows 8 (which I've heard nothing but negative things about, but I understand it has better hyper threading performance)???

Concerning the S3 and S4 issues:
This seems to be linked to some BIOS settings. I had just reflashed the latest BIOS today and changed settings, step by step.

At first, I did not get the "0E" hang error, when waking from S3 and/or S4. After some more settings, the error was back. So this is somehow linked to some specific BIOS setting(s).
Can't tell which one exactly, however, just yet.

Hi guys, I'm wondering if this board is worth buying into? Xeon E5-2670s SR0KX chips are currently selling for peanuts right now and I'm itching to grab a couple for to give an oomph to my current CAD workstation build.
