My build....

Feedback welcomed. The water cooling really hammers the overall cost unfortunately.

Sorry I didnt see your reply. Nah, better concentrate on having adequate airflow on your system to pour all that heat out. GL!

I’ve been given a ZPE-D8 WS motherboard, but it has some issues in that the Xeon CPU doesn’t seem to be reported correctly in the BIOS or using apps such as CPU-Z or even the Intel CPU identifier utility (that reports it as too new/unknown – but recognises the number of cores and cache sizes). The board also only sees the first CPU, even when both are installed. The cpu’s have been swapped (so both cpu's are good) and only the cpu in the first socket is ever seen. (I suspect the fact the cpu isn't identified correctly may be causing the issue with running both CPU's in SMP?)

I’m told the board and both cpu’s were working previously, but after a BIOS update it stopped seeing the 2nd cpu. I have tried downgrading to much earlier versions of the BIOS, but updater utility will not let me roll back to the older 03xx versions.

It seems to run fine on just one cpu, but it would be nice to get it working properly with both sockets. Any ideas/suggestions as to what the problem might be and possible fixes?
Thanks.

Hi guys,

I just received my revision 1.4 board. Were there V1.1, V1.2 etc?

I want to build a new PC out of the box with a fresh install of Windows 10 using a Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2 card and a PCI express M.2 adaptor. I have read that you need to trick the board to boot from M.2 using a bios tweak, is that correct?

I'm following this guide....
http://www.overclock.net/t/1571271/tutorial-how-to-add-nvme-support-on-any-ami-uefi-bios-with-an-intel-chipset

What Bios should I upgrade to? Will I have the PCI Express slot drop back to 2.0 instead of 3.0 as it should be? I know some here have experienced these problems.

Anybody running windows 10 successfully without any problems?

Cheers,
Homer

Hi homer,

The only thing to boot off the drive is in bios under the boot tab go into csm menu and change pcie from legacy to uefi. Hope this helps

Thanks Shread,

So I can put my M.2 SSD drive in the slot, put in my windows 10 disk and install from scratch if I change the setting as you told me?

Cheers

Yea it should work. Also I don't know if you will have the same problem that I had with Windows 10 but if during the installation you get a blue screen of death then you might have to swap out your bios chip for a new one. If it installs without problem then you should be good to go smile.gif

What the......

A windows 10 install crash ruins the bios! What type of shonky board is this!?

Go me worried now
post #2209 of 2477
No no lol it doesn't ruin the bios, what I meant it's that my bios didn't support some kind of power thing that Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 use. It was weird cuz Windows 7 installed fine but everything else would blue screen. So it was when I replaced them bios chip for a new one that all the os started working properly. Sorry for the confusion lol.
post #2210 of 2477
Lol oh ok I see now. So what bios version should I have before installing?

Cheers
