Asus Z9PE-D8 Owner's thread - Page 85

No clue. The first is packed up and going back to superbiiz.com. The second board came from Amazon. If you can figure that out from the serial number, board 1 starts with D7S1. Board 2 is D9S1.

That would be most excellent.  Recommended BIOS for different ES chips, recommended RAM, and PSUs, etc would all be good stuff to have in the OP instead of digging through 800+ posts for pertinent info.

Anyone else getting blue screens in Windows 8 with different messages memory, watchdog, etc?
Always when renddering. Sometimes at 100% load, sometimes with no load at all, just looking at the project.
Really close to do samo physical damage to the board with some High Volts and clame RMA and just buy something else. This board is really my worst purchase. thumb.gif

What version do the board say it is? If its a rev.1.04 its bios that can't understand how to use a Ivy chip. You can find this info middle of the board next to the ram slots.

Your best option is to get a pre flashed bios chip from eBay with 5103 loaded on it. Or buy a cheap Sandy chip.

bios chip cost me like 9 euro. Everything now works just fine.

to anyone interested, this is the BIOS nightly build (5206). they told me that is was supposed to support 2630v2 which is not listed as compatible CPU (yet it is working fine with 1 CPU...) but they didn't say anything about the issue with non-ECC memory. i'll update and see how it's going.

here's the link :

OK guys, after updating to 5206, I am now booting on my 2 Xeon E5-2630v2 with 4x8gb of non-ECC memory. biggrin.gif
post #848 of 2457
@Emji, awesome news - just need my ECC ram to arrive now so I can post and flash from 5103 to 5206 smile.gif
I can smell success just over the horizon...

Also just general FYI there is no matching between board rev and bios rev. I got 1.04 board rev and 3xxx bios.

5206 fixes incorrect timing detection for ECC RAM with IVB-EP, so it looks like ASUS spent some time fixing memory detection/training issues.

Also, they now correctly set Isoch to "disabled" for 12-core CPUs, and also add additional IvyTown options.
post #850 of 2457
Yes I can confirm with 5206 I have 2 x 2687W V2 running with 64GB (8 X 8) of dominator GT @ 1866. 89.25GB/s and running prime95 torture test quite happily.

I continue to be amazed by how cool the SB and IB Xeons run. I have H90 cooling on these and with torture test I still can't get the CPU over 50C !! Very disappointing to not be able to wind up the fans with a big compute smile.gif

Txs to you all for helping me get through this.

Hopefully plain sailing from here on....

Mike
