Based on the manual it says this is the "initialization of PCH run time service." What did ASUS Tech Support tell you to try? You might try clearing bios and starting it up again. Ensure you have 2 x EATX 12V connectors (even if you only have 1 CPU)+1 x 24 pin+CPU fans plugged in and memory installed into the correct slot(s). What type of power supply are you running?

Going to try to contact them today, been sorting through the problem on my own so far.

 

Have tried clearing the BIOS though a few times, and always have both of the 8 pin power cables plugged in alongside the 24 pin. I'm running a 1200W Cooler Master PSU right now.

 

Turns out my Gigabyte UD5 board was running BIOS version F3 and the Xeon 2687W support came in BIOS F10...that wouldn't explain why it's running my 3930K fine since that requires BIOS F7 according to their site.

 

If I'm feeling ambitious, I'll throw one of those Xeons into the UD5 again and see if I've got any luck this time with it. At least will let me narrow it down to being the Asus board if the Xeons are working.

Update...

 

No idea what changed really, but my system is now working perfectly. I swapped out the 680 for a barebones Asus card...but was still getting Q-Code 62. Anyway, I plugged in a screen and it was booting, and I can't explain any of it...but I'm a very happy guy suffice to say.

I guess now the real problem...is anyone using this board with a GTX 680? I've got the EVGA 680 FTW 4GB and for the life of me, I cannot get this machine to play nice with it. I get zero video output and I get two different sets of beep warnings when I boot with it. The first is 1 long, 3 short...that is a video card warning. Then I get one long with 8 short later on in the boot process.

 

The system boots fine with this barebones Asus video card, the type with no PSU connection or fans on it.

 

Anyway I'm pretty stumped at the moment, and due to my watercooling setup I cannot move the 680 around to try out different PCI slots...though I have tried the barebones card in different slots and it's always fine, doesn't matter where or whether the slot is blue or grey.

 

This is really annoying because I've just swapped from using a RIVE 3930K as my workstation to using this, and now I'm left without a proper machine to use as my 3930K got downgraded to 32GB RAM and a 560ti in order to give the 64GB and GTX 680 to this Z9PE-D8 machine.

 

UPDATE:

 

The card is working fine when the aircooler is on. When I swap it out for the EK block, it stops working again. My only theory is the card's fan header needs a jumper or something, though I haven't tried to run it with the air cooler on, but the fan unplugged.

kweechy,

I'm not sure what you mean by "aircooler"... Is that the CPU cooler?

I had those symptoms myself. I discovered that my CPU coolers were mounted too tight. On this board, this can warp the seats slightly. And heat and cooling can then cause intermittent problems. See earlier posts 11, 16 and 20.

Ah sorry, I meant the stock air cooler on the GPU.

kweechy, your 2687w ES are QA91? what BIOS are you using? what PCI slot is your board plugged in?

This board and GTX 660/660Ti/670/680 pairs have repeateadly shown problematic
post #68 of 2460
BIOS is the latest, 3206 I believe or something? Not sure what batch of ES I'm running but that's probably what they are.

My 680 boots more or less fine everytime now that the stock air is back on. Sometimes it's still not recognized, but I'm happy to rule out the board as having the problem, I think it lies with my 680.

Sidenote: how on earth do you change your memory speeds on this board? My 2133 Gskill kit is very sad at 1333 right now.

DRAM speed can be changed in Advanced Menu/Chipset configuration/memory configuration/DDR speed

Do you have CPU-Z installed so you can see the CPU revision (A0,B0.C0,C1,C2?) and the installed BIOS version (3109,3206,3302?) ?

Thanks a lot

Hi guys, new to the forum, although a long time reader so to speak. I've recently put together a rendering HPC and having much the same issue as Kweechy.

The only difference is that i'm running a PNY Quadro K5000 instead of a GTX 680 (however I believe they are both PCIe 3.0 cards using the same Kepler chipset - GK104). Please note, I have made absolutely certain all power connectors (2x 8 EPS etc) are connected. I'm actually typing this from the HPC in question, so the build is solid, just the BIOS config/Firmware is in question. I've found the following (dot pointed for easier reading);

1. The card WILL NOT work in PCIe Slot 1 - period.
2. The card WILL work one out of perhaps 3-4 times in PCIe Slot 3 (but no other slot). This is purely random.
3. When the card fails to be detected I get the same single beep, followed by three beeps at Q-Code 62, then another single beep and 8 short fast beeps.
4. My GTX 480 works flawlessly in ANY PCIe slot.

I have tried the following to correct the issue. Note; nothing has worked so far;

1. Cleared CMOS
2. Updated the BIOS to 3302 (in steps, testing in various PCIe slots each update)
3. Although this is a BIOS POST issue, when booting was successful in PCIe Slot 3, I tried both nVidia Quadro/Tesla drivers 307.45 and 310.70
3. Tried different cards (GTX 480, 690) *Note, the 690 suffers from the PLX issue
5. Tried different slots (Only PCIe Slot 3 works (albiet randomly)
6. Enabled "VGA Palette Snoop", thinking this may force detection (it has worked for some, but not me)
7. Reseated RAM/CPU etc... no luck
8. Contacted PNY for any firmware updates - Their response; sorry this card has no updates - please return the card to the store for a refund (yes really!!!?)
9. Logged a ticket with ASUS - Their response; "Please clear CMOS for a try", "Also, please keep latest firmware of your vga card." (naturally i'd attempted both)
10. Detailed the issue on the ASUS forums - http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20121229093923207&board_id=1&model=Z9PE-D8+WS&page=1&SLanguage=en-us
11. The PNY Quadro K5000 works flawlessly in any other single CPU board (ASUS P8P67 LE, EVGA X58 Micro)
12. The SMB(?) Error log shows Error 0x55 and the odd 0x00 (I think the latter is from mashing the reset button).

I've also left a review note on the Newegg.com PNY Quadro K5000 product page (as had two others) to warn people that Dual CPU boards don't seem stable enough yet to handle PCIe 3.0 lanes with newer generation GPUs. My guess is that perhaps firmware will be released to resolve this, else none of the newer generation GTX 6XX or Quadro cards will work in the ASUS Dual CPU boards (hell it won't even detect in an EVGA SR-X i'm told). One reviewer says he has the card running flawlessly in PCIe slot 2 (maybe he means x16 slot 2.. which would be PCIe Slot 3? i'd love to know his BIOS config for this!). This is the Newegg.com product review page - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133468&Tpk=quadro%20k5000

The only way I can get the card working is to mash the reset button until the screen throws up the ASUS BIOS splash screen - sometimes I get lucky, others it takes up to 3-4 goes. I will note that once it has booted past the BIOS POST, the platform is rock solid and one hell of a performer! I just don't like to think i've thrown $9000AUD at a HPC that I have to mash the reset button on to get past POST.

System specifications are below;

Mobo - ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS flashed to BIOS 3302
CPU - 2x Intel Xeon ES 2600 series (C1 Stepping) 3.0GHz 8 Core (roughly E5-2687w equivalent)
SSD - 1x Intel 520 480GB (400i Firmware)
GPU - 1x PNY Quadro K5000 4GB
GPGPU - 1x nVidia Tesla K20 (For Maximus 2.0 configuration)
RAM - 64GB (8x8GB) Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz CL9
PSU - XFX Black Edition 1250w (modular, gold rated 80+)
BRD - ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu-ray Burner

If anyone has any ideas as to what options I could try in the BIOS (or anything else for that matter), i'm all ears! (or eyes as it were).
