                          [-i] [-n bytes] [-v]

 Options:
   -l | -s       Load (-l) file to EEPROM -OR- Save (-s) EEPROM to file
   file          Specifies the file to load or save
   -p chip,rev   Limits device selection to a specific PLX chip type. If
                  revision provided, it further limits to a specific revision.
   -d dev        Specifies device number to select
   -w width      Specifies an EEPROM address width (1, 2, or 3) to override
   -i            Ignore warnings & continue (e.g. EEPROM not detected)
   -n bytes      Number of extra bytes (after PLX portion) to save to file
   -v            Verbose output (for debugging purposes)
   -h or -?      This help screen

I tried this. It said it was reading an 'extra' 200 bytes, and the extra bytes were all zeroes in the resultant file.

The initial 68 bytes are the same though.

I just did the update. I didn't try 3333 but I see no reason why not. I'm running 3200 with no issues.

New BIOS

X99-E-WS Formal BIOS 3601 release.
[Using FlashBack, please rename to "X99EWS.CAP" after download.]
1.Improved Plextor M8Pe M.2 NVMe SSD compatibility
2.Improve Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard compatibility in Post and UEFI
**Please use “USB BIOS Flashback ” upgrade to BIOS 3601.
Steps
Step1: USB BIOS Flashback update BIOS.
Step2: Clear CMOS.
Step3: Install CPU.
Step4: Start to use.

Should I just update as usual or do flashback?

I never had any issues with flashback. Unless your using the items stating were fixed the update is pretty pointless. The only thing it did for me was make me have to remember all my overclock settings.

Just found this thread. I bought this board as soon as it was released. About a year later and I'm still so happy I went with it. It was super expensive compared to others but I love it. My setup:


i7-6850k
32GB RAM 3200Mhz
NVIDIA Titan X Pascal
Cooler Master Cosmos II case
Corsair h100i v2 liquid CPU cooler
EVGA 850w Power Supply (Titanium)
Intel overclock protection plan.

I'm using the build-in overclocking in extreme mode. I primarily run Linux but I also have Windows on a secondary drive for some games and applications. I've never thrown anything at this machine it couldn't handle. It does a really good job training my neural networks too.

My plans:

A second Titan X Pascal (I program machine learning algorithms).
A more powerful power supply.
Liquid GPU coolers.
A 64GB or 128GB RAM kit.
Possibly an even better i7 as prices go down.


When I first got this board, I had trouble with RAM. I initially tried to use RAM that wasn't on the board's compat list because of the good deals I could get on newegg. This was a mistake. I tried a GSkill Tridenz kit and could never get it to work. Once I used the RAM on the compat list though, it worked right away with no problems.

All this time later and this mobo is still probably the best of the Asus's WS series.

I flashed this using the instructions found in the .pdf. This only mentions running 8747.bat.

But, it looks like this only flashed the first of the 2 PEX chips. ('Saving' the current contents now shows a different length for the 2 chips on my system at the moment. The new longer size for the first, and the older shorter length for the other).

Did you run only 8747.bat? Or flash both?

It looks to me like running 'program2.bat 8747ca.bin' would probably try to flash both.

Hello, i'm new here, and i got a question i have the ASUS X99-E WS motherboard which is a pretty awesome motherboard, i was curious to know if it was possible to use with the latest bios the ES/QS XEON's i see a lot on ebay which would be cheap.

i did try to search this information, but alas i was not able to find any definitive information

Thanks!!!

First, welcome maurice27. Generally concerning your chip, here's a post regarding engineering sample XEONs, then ASUS does list some XEONs, but since you didn't list its model number I can't say for sure if it's supported. As to your specific question, I personally would only use the ASUS updates for my board and use Intel for the ES chip...meaning, I would go to Intel's site and see if there are any updates for that particular chip. I've done that with my i7s and haven't had any problems (yet:o), although I understand this is a different chip that requires careful maintenance, from everything I've read the XEON chip is great after setup.

 

I know this didn't provide a "definitive" answer to your post, but maybe it gives you a starting point. I personally don't plan on using the update in question since I have neither a Plextor M8Pe M.2 NVMe SSD or use Logitech's G510s Gaming Keyboard.

Thanks!
Well i would use one CPU that is supported for the motherboard, but in it's QS/ES state, example the E5-2650 V4 but ES

Example:
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Intel-Xeon-E5-2650-V4-ES-QHV6-12Core-2-2GHz-30MB-105W-LGA2011-Processor-CPU-/112515537506?hash=item1a3272da62:g:MB0AAOSwhfhZyN-n
