Hi Liron, could you post what model and stepping are your engineering samples?

I have two 660Ti and many problems to make them work on this motherboard.

Thanks a lot in advance

regards

Hi. They are E5 2660 ES 2.3GHz. (Although they actually reach 2.41GHz with speedstep smile.gif ) Model D Stepping 2.

Good for you Liron!

Thanks 4 the feedback on the BIOS upgrades. I've found the PCIes on this board to be a touch finicky. Nice to know it can be can be tamed a bit.
When I first built my rig I had a new ASUS wireless card and it never worked. It either BSOD'ing or caused Windows 7 to freeze when booting). I RMA'd it for a replacement and I experienced the same symptoms. So I shoved it in a box and built a wired network. And actually I did have some other puzzling anomalies with other cards early on as well.

I'm at v0503 and it's working stably. I've also got an Adaptec RAID controller, which unfortunately isn't UEFI compliant... it boots under the legacy BIOS within v0503 rather than UEFI, so I might have to investigate the potential impact first.

Thanks, can you precise whether they are B0 (QA8X) or C0(QB7B), I think I had read somewhere that B0's could have problems with .cap BIOS (eg. 3206)

thanks for your help

It's not in CPU-Z, but looking at the auction, they are QA90.

Ok thanks a lot, and you say they are working with BIOS 3206, aren't they? that is great news, mine are QA91 and I was afraid to flash to 3206, well I'm still....

Yes, they are. I know how you feel. I was terrified of flashing mine but, since the video card wouldn't work on it, I had no choice.
I hope nobody's mobo gets fried.

Good luck!

Anyone else with B0 ES xeons (QA90, QA91, QA92) and BIOS 3206 working together?
post #60 of 2457

Bought one of these and trying to get up and running with 2 E5 2687W eng samples. Getting Q-Code 62 every time I power on the system. Tried running with only CPU1 active and one stick of RAM, unplugged all HDDs and GPU, tried both Xeons in CPU1 slot...no luck with anything so far.

 

System won't POST at all, only displays 62 in the LED readout forever while the fans spin.

 

Later this week, I'll have a chance to drop in some non-ES Xeons and give that a test.
