SUCCESS:

It was a bad sata cable all along .... I changed the cable and bam ... I booted straight in windows, no hickups.
I quicly tested Cinebench 15 and I get a 2028 score !! My score with my other system (I7 4770k overclocked at 4.55Ghz was giving me 980 so this is awesome .... !

CPUz recognizes all cores and the memory running at 1866 mhz as I forced it in Bios.

Hey All,

Bios 5802
CPU 2xE5-2697V2

The ASMB6-iKVM is a chip that allows one to remotely restart/manage a workstation computer independently of the OS. I recently installed it in my Asus Z9PE-D8 WS mobo. After flashing the firmware to the chip, the Q-code diagnostic display on the mobo does an 80 second countdown procedure which allows the chip to initialize. When it finishes it stops at 0. Eventually the display changes to AE, which means "Legacy Boot Event". During this process nothing is outputted to the monitor.

If I remove the ASMB6-iKVM chip the mobo POSTs fine.

This is a pretty specific problem, but if anyone has any insight as to how I can get past the ASMB6-iKVM initialization process I'd appreciate it.

What bios version are you using?

Ok, I got it working! Got a second board from a local seller rather than from China as the first one was, and everything works perfectly! Like I thought it would! Sending the other one to ASUS for repair and may set it up in my NZXT Phantom 530.
Current build:
ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS
2x E5-2670 - ($60 ea. on fleabay now) My first one I bought a 8 months ago from same seller for over $100, that I used in a P9X79-E WS
2x CM Hyper 212 Evo
8x 8GB PNY Anarchy DDR3-1866 - (got for $26 ea at the Egg a few weeks ago) I can only get it to boot at 1600Mhz, which is fine. I was using Gskill Ares 1866Mhz and it was working at that speed on the
P9X79. The Anarchy DDR3-1600 was $1 less at that time.
2x R9 280X
EVGA 1000 GQ
Phanteks Enthoo Pro (in Titanium Green), added 3 Phanteks 140mm fans to the top, besides the front 200mm and back 140mm.

CPU temps are 53-55C for CPU1 and 65-69C for CPU2 full load,I think that is ok. Not sure how the gtx will affect the heat once those have a full load Using AC5 and tried not to smother it with TIM like I usually do. Guessing those temps are okay? I primarily want to use this to BOINC.

BTW, the Enthoo Pro fits the board perfectly except for 1 hole. I got some plastic snap-in supports with flat base online to fix that. Amazon didn't have them, found them via Google. I imagine the NZXT will have 2 or 3 holes that won't fit since it doesn't support the EEB form factor officially like the Phanteks did, and even then, 1 hole was missing.

I am using the latest BIOS. I have an update. Overnight the computer booted up!

Basically now whenever I restart it it takes 10-15 minutes of the error screen staying at 0 after the ASMB6-iKVM chip initializes, and then the mobo moves on to CSM initialization (diagnostic code 79). This process takes around 10-15 minutes. It all seems a bit excessive - what can I do to fix this?

Does anyone use a GTX 780 Ti with their Z9? I have a 780Ti that's giving me problems, it's in my SR-2, I want to be sure it's not related to that system's components. Last time I tried 780Ti on Z9 didn't work (and I upgraded BIOS), which BIOS version do you use?

Thanks,
amzServer

Hello, can anyone help im having problems getting gigabyte gtx 980ti G1 to boot on this motherboard.

First boot after bios reset gets me to bios, but as soon as i save and reboot it goes to boot loop, endlessly restarting itself and shutting down.

The card works flawlessly on my older computer, and so did my previous card on this board.

I have the newest bios flashed but still same problem occurs.

Any ideas?
