Asus Z9PE-D8 Owner's thread - Page 231

post #2301 of 2474
I have read , that many people had a problem with the Graphic cards. The motherboard did not recognize the graphic cards and the users had to update BIOS etc. How can I update bios, when my graphic card does not work and I see nothing ?! For this reason I am not sure, if GTX 1080 run. Asus does not make any new update frown.gif((.

I have checked Z10PE-D8 WS and X99s too, but the CPUs are always expensive ...

I wasnt able to use my 780Ti but I didnt insist. I use ECC ram is super cheap and I use 8GB dimms

I'm using 4x old GTX titans ( Kepler ) without problems. So the 780ti should also work. I went back to Bios 5701 as the newest bios has a problem with the first slot running at Gen 3.

Strange how temperamental this mobo is, seems like its a lottery getting a good one which isn't very encouraging for Jirkas, I got lucky I guess, but from what I know the SR-2 you are using is also riddled with problems, and EVGA development and support gave up on it a few years back, as it was too much of a headache.

I rarely use CPU's for rendering anymore, so my next build will probably be a single socket. the X99-e WS maybe, with 4 x Titan X ( Pascal) or maybe I will wait until this time next year and build on the new platform. Hopefully there will be a fully loaded Pascal by then...

The Z10 and X99 are expensive plus the CPU's, but they may offer a more future proof platform, especially compatibility wise.

Have you cross checked on somewhere like CPU Monkey to see which V3 or V4 Xeons may offer the same processing power as the old 2670? I haven't checked but the lower end V3/V4 Xeons may match the power of the old 2670's but cheaper.

It has a basic VGA controller built in which is disabled on later bios versions. The VGA connector is on a PCI slot plate in the box and connects to a motherboard header if you want to use it, but I doubt anyone does, mine is still unopened in the box in the loft.

It does, there is a VGA header on board that you would need the accessory bracket for. Its not on the I/O back ports.

Yes, SR-2 was a great motherboard but it was troublesome for many. It runs my 780 Ti without problems though. It had problems detecting some memory configurations too, but it's perfectly fine with 32GB ATM.

I dunno what BIOS I tested on the Z9 for the 780, I'll try with 5701 as you suggest, I did use the first slot too as you mention.

For future-proofing, one might wanna go get a Z10... Xeon V2's are more expensive but 2670's V2 can be found at affordable prices, V3 are off the charts mostly.

Nice comparison. Yup v3 are expensive as hell, and thats a 2630 not a 2670 which is 10 or 12 core I think, so just imagine the price haha
