It seems most X38/X48 boards are a pain to mod no matter who the manufacturer is. Some may not work at all. I have modded your original BIOS you had uploaded with the latest micro codes for those two CPU's, but I didn't delete the old ones. If it doesn't work correctly I can remove the old codes, but I'm playing it safe for now. keep in mind that the engineering sample chip you have may have compatibility issues no matter what you do. I am new to this all but have done a lot of research because I am modifying my Asus P5Q-PRO BIOS.Keep in mind if you flash any modified BIOS you are taking a chance at bricking your motherboard! Do this at your own risk, I take no responsibility if you kill your motherboard!!!

I liked the idea of having a super low voltage chip, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
I just hope it isn't the chipset that is causing you the headache... it would suck to go through the same thing with two CPU's. Edited by TerminalVoltage - 11/16/13 at 3:14pm
