Hi, my Asrock x58 Extreme + Xeon X5660 won't post.
I tried everything on the won't post troubleshooting checklistlist but my sytem won't post. The diagnostic Led (DR. Bios) shows error 68 and the screen stays blank.

Motherboard : ASrock x58 Extreme
CPU : Xeon X 5660
RAM : Samsung DDR3-800 2gb x3
GPU : AMD Radeon RX480 8gb Ref


The system was working fine with an i7 920 but not with the Xeon. Looking at my motherboard's FAQ, it tells me that error 68 is a chipset error and to clear the cmos which is what I did by setting the clear cmos jumper appropriately, removing the battery and waiting 8 hours but still no luck.

Here is a recap of all the steps I took to isolate the error.
-I took the mb out of the case to rule out any short circuit.
-I only connected the CPU, RAM and GPU to rule out any sata or usb error
-I double checked that the 12V ATX on the motherboard is connected
-I cleared cmos with the clear cmos button and by using the jumper + battery removal and waiting overnight
-I tried without ram and it would beep so the PSU seems to work.
-I tried with just 1 RAM stick in each dimm slot

So I m thinking that
1) either the cpu is dead (I bought it second hand and the seller affirms it s working fine, he is a prefoessional specialized in used pc parts with a lots of positive review so I don t think he would lie). The cpu might have been damaged during shipping or because of my mishandling during installation. I was careful and didn't touch the pins and put it genlty in place but who knows
2) the motherboard is not compatible with the xeon, which is not officially supported but I read numerous reports on the net that it still works .
3) the ram is not supported by the xeon because it s too slow (DDR3-800)? That would be strange. I bought a 16gb set anyways because I wanted to upgrade from 6gb. I ll try these too. First with one stick only in each slot.

So my last hope is is that I read that sometimes, putting back the i7 920 and resetting everything in the bios then swapping back the xeon seems to make the xeon work. I would have thought that clearing the cmos would have the same effect but who knows. I d rather avoid taking out the Xeon if someone has another suggestion because I don t want to mess with the thermal paste.

Also if anyone has a story of Xeon NOT working with an X58 I would be interested to know their error code. If it s the same as me at least I ll know that it is 100% because my motherboard is not compatible and have peace of mind.

I wouldn't have thought that getting in the X58 Xeon club was so hard!

Any feedback is appreciated!

If it were me, I would put the 920 back in and see if it still works. If it works I would check to see if it is running the latest BIOS, and flash it if need be.
If the 920 works and the board has latest BIOS, I would say the xeon CPU is bad

I know I am late to the party, but I have always been a huge fan of the x58 platform. Besides poor implementation of usb3.0 and sata3.0 it is still dope as anything.

PLEASE ADD ME TO THE CLUB !!

I bought the Xeon for $75USD to replace a dead 970 and this things runs likes a champ.
4.4ghz seems to be a sweet spot for my Intel rigs as this Xeon, my 2600k, and my 6700k all run 24/7 stable at 4.4ghz.

I am pretty sure voltage killed my 970 (took 6 years of abuse tho) so I am not comfortable raising my voltage anymore than it is.
BIOS on the R3F mobo is 0903

Thanks to all the original posters who make this site what it is!

Updated the bios of my Asrock X58 Extreme to the latest version 2.9 and now it works!

Can anyone run the latest P95 for more than an hour without failing? 4.2Ghz was stable on my old board at 1.33v, it keeps failing on the UD7. It doesn't have a core fail it just said the program has stopped running er something like that.

Yes.

System is unstable. I'd lean toward uncore (QPI/VTT too high/low or uncore multiplier too high) or memory being the issue, but you'll need to test more to narrow things down.

@Blameless User/Operator error. Before I flashed my bios I loaded 'Fail Safe' defaults and didn't run 'Optimized defaults' after the bios update. That changed something called cpu clock drive & pcie clock drive. Retesting my stability clocks, lol, smh redface.gif
