Questions, I've read a few places that one could run their xeons in full turbo all the time with this mobo, how exactly do you do that?

Has anyone tried to use DDR4 2400 ram or higher, or even non-ECC ram at 2133+ speeds? The QVL supports samsung ddr4-2400. Also, has anyone tried ES or OEM CPUs not listed in the CPU support? Thanks.

This is a new board for me but I tried non-ECC Ram and it would not boot. Got stuck at Code: 61. I ordered ECC and it booted.

My issue is that the Motherboard temp sensor is and has been stuck at 102C. It never changes. I've measured the board with an IR thermometer and it's cool. I can't find any 200+F hot spots. Ever see this before?

Ok, Folk I need help again! My Video Cards will not crossfire. In the software it shows that one card is Primary and the other card is disabled. Both cards show in Device Manager. I have installed and uninstalled different versions of the Catalyst and Crimson software that my fingers are bloody. I took the cards that were in slots 1 and 3 and switched them around to the same result. Now I have just taken the cards and moved them to the other CPU's slots 5 and 7. Same thing. I have swapped them back and forth in those slots and same results. The second card always shows as "Disabled" and there is no option to enable crossfire. In fact the word crossfire does not appear in the software. But again, it shows two cards. What have I overlooked? the cards spec the same when they are active, and they were in a crossfire before I had the MB RMA'd. We got me through getting the M.2 to be the boot drive and now it boots through with USB ports occupied - this would seem to be my last obstacle! Listed is my build, and everything else is working. My BIOS version is: 1202
thanks in advance

I have used both ECC and non ECC RAM with no issues at all. Did you check the non-ECC RAM for issues? Chances are you may have gotten one or more bad sticks of RAM which is why you had trouble. Also, I NEVER buy the cheap brands and stay with names like Corsair, Crucial, Samsung and Kingston. You need to also make sure they are in the proper memory banks and if "paired" sticks are slotted accordingly per manual.

But to answer your question, either will work fine.

Good to hear about the non and ECC ram and that both work. I did a lot of reading and chose non-ECC G.Skill ram. It was less expensive than some but it got very good reviews. I wasn't familiar with it so I didn't know if it was cheap ram or not. Maybe that was the issue. I had 4 sticks ans tried them one-at-a-time and none worked. I couldn't run any tests on them as I couldn't boot far enough in. Anyway, I now have very expensive ECC ram that's working well.

What I can't get is both chips to overclock. One chip overclocked at Level 1, 2 and 3. But both won't overclock at even Level 1. I believe it's called "Levels" in the bios. Anyway, there three options for overclocking. If I use any of them I hang, have to reset the Bios and start over.

Interesting, in my first test for this MB I have not managed to do this motherboard Z10PE-D8 WS to work with these non ecc DDR 4 Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB DDR4 2666MHz CL15 Quad Channel Kit , I get the B1 error on the motherboard display and no boot .
On Asus website i can not find anywhere how to instal other procesor than Intel Xeon E5 V3 family and DDR4 ECC ram : http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z10PED8_WS/specifications/
Now have this instaled and work just fine : 2 KIT of Kingston KVR21R15D4K4/64, DDR4, RDIMM, 64GB, 2133 MHz, CL 15, 1.2V, ECC, 128 GB .

My question .... how did you make to work NON ECC DDR4 ram tho this MB ? smile.gif

The only thing I can think of is the memory was not configured properly, per directions in the manual. You can't just slot them anywhere you want, there is a specific bank you must use and how to pair them. This applies to a number of factors, such as single or duel CPU use. Chances are likely if you see boot issues and you KNOW the memory is tested good, it's your configuration being incorrect. All I did was bought "matched pairs" and installed them per the manual guidelines with no trouble.

Refer to the Asus manual for details, in part below it states:

"When installing DIMMs, always start from slot A1 (CPU1) and E1 (CPU2).• Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum compatibility, it is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor."

Also, you state it's 2666MHz memory and that is NOT stated as supported in the manual. ONLY up to 2133 MHz is listed as max for DDR4. Right there is a problem that's clearly stated.

Glad things worked out though, best of luck.

You can't run Xeons at full turbo on this motherboard I believe, but this motherboard does have ASUS auto tuner for Xeons and a turbo charger than overclocks your Xeon for you, so you don't have to mess around with the BCLK. It's a really beefy board.. And I'll be using the D16 in my build.. Can't wait. thumb.gif
If you'd want to run your Xeons at full turbo.. Just run them at full load 24/7....
