Intel Broadwell EP 12 core + Future AMD RX 480 - Page 4

post #31 of 43
I was only able to get my retail E5-2603v3 to 105.7 BCLK. From what I've read that's supposed to be good since a lot of these Xeons can't go above 102mhz. I've always hoped that there might be unlocked ES versions somewhere, but that doesn't seem to be the case. If you have the ability to RMA then that's good. I have confidence in my ability and I'm sure I perfectly aligned each pin where it's supposed to be.

105BCLK is a nice frequency increase. BTW I received my E5-2667 V4 'ES' today smile.gif
Seems that it isn't an ES? Check this pic, 4-digit qspec indicates that it is a ES, 5 digit sSpec means it's non-ES?
BTW when adjusting the BCLK, do you need to touch any other settings? RAM timings, etc?

That's a nice looking CPU smile.gif

Just got news from NCIX Canada ! They will send me an email with instructions on how to return the deffective motherboard. I will get store credit in exchange. I will buy online the ASUS X99-A II ATX LGA2011-3 that supports Broadwell E out of the box.

I think that this board will be a better fit for my build too smile.gif

Let me know what you think !

That is a mighty fine looking board if I do say so myself. Although I think you may find this list that I stumbled upon early today quite useful:

X99 ES CPU / Motherboard Compatibility List! (Click to show)

System Compatibility (Updated 6/11/2016):


The following is a list of products that we have tested to be compatible with ES CPUs:


Servers & Workstations:

  • Dell: PowerEdge R430/R530/T430 (BIOS 2.0.1), R630/R730/R730XD (BIOS 2.1.6), M630/FC630/M630 VRTX (BIOS 2.1.6), T630 (BIOS 2.1.5), C4130 (BIOS 2.1.5), C6320 (BIOS 2.1.5); Precision T5810 (BIOS A12), T7810 (BIOS A12), T7910 (BIOS A12), R7910 (BIOS 2.0.3)


Motherboards:

  • Supermicro: X10S series (all models with BIOS R2.0), X10D series (all models with BIOS R2.0), C7X99-OCE (BIOS R2.0)
  • Tyan: S562 series (BIOS V2.00), S707 series (BIOS V2.00), S708 series (BIOS V2.00)
  • Asus: Z10PA-D8 (BIOS 3107), Z10PE-D16 (BIOS 3104), Z10PR-D16 (BIOS 3104), Z10PE-D16 WS (BIOS 3204)
  • ASRock: EPC612 series (all models with BIOS 2.10), FH-C612NM (BIOS 1.10); X99 series (all models with BIOS 3.00 or above)
  • MSI: X99 Godlike Gaming Carbon (BIOS 2.3); X99A XPower Gaming Titanium; X99A Gaming Pro Carbon (BIOS 1.1); X99A Gaming 9 ACK (BIOS 3.4); X99S Gaming 9 AC (BIOS 1.B); X99A XPower AC (BIOS A.5); X99S XPower AC (BIOS 1.B); X99A/S Gaming 7 (BIOS H.E); X99A Raider (BIOS P.4)
  • EVGA: X99 Family (all models with BIOS 2.01 or above)


Note: A BIOS upgrade may be necessary for motherboards manufactured prior to the introduction of the Xeon E5-2600 v4 series.


The following is a list of products that we have tested to be incompatible with ES CPUs:


Servers & Workstations:

  • HP servers and workstations: support V4 processors with B0/M0/R0 stepping only


Motherboards:

  • Asus X99 series (all models): stuck at Q-Code 19 after reboot; supports V4 (pre-)QS or production processors only
  • Asus Z10PE-D8 WS (BIOS 3204): cannot power on when the 2nd CPU is installed; supports V4 (pre-)QS or production processors for dual-CPU configuration
  • Gigabyte X99 series (all models with BIOS F22): boot loop; support V4 processors with B0/M0/R0 stepping only
  • MSI X99 series (all models with BIOS released prior to 05/23/2016): boot loop; support V4 processors with B0/M0/R0 stepping only


Note: Please look for V4 QS (not ES2) processors that are compatible to these products instead. QS stands for "Qualification Sample." These CPUs are generally more widely supported than their earlier ES2 "Engineering Sample" versions.

Note 2: Production Intel processors have 5 letter S-Spec numbers starting from S. Engineering (ES) and Qualification Samples (QS) of Intel processors have 4-6 letter specification numbers starting from Q.

I would pay close attention to the line that says "Asus X99 series (all models): stuck at Q-Code 19 after reboot; support V4 (pre-)QS or production processors only". In my opinion I would say that you may want to consider a more supportive motherboard as there is no way to tell if the Q-Spec of your CPU (QHV8) is either ES or QS.

Thanks again for your amazing answer smile.gif

Since Asus doesn't support ES cpu with their motherboards, I might go with either EVGA or MSI since Asrock for me is like a copy of a copy of a brand.

I'm just not quite sure to be able to know which version of the BIOS these motherboards will ship with... Is there any way to find out with production date or something else?

Thanks a lot again you are awesome!

No problem! EVGA and MSI are both great brands, but as far as I know, there is no real way of determining what BIOS version the motherboard will ship with. You could always email NCIX and ask though, I'm sure they would be more than happy to help you. Other than that, the only motherboard I can really recommend to you from either MSI or EVGA that would almost guarantee you get a good BIOS, would be the MSI X99A Pro Gaming Carbon, as it is newly released and has only ever had one BIOS update so far. That being said though, that motherboard looks to be about $100 CAD over your budget. I would definitely recommend you start by asking NCIX first before you jump for the X99A Pro Gaming Carbon.

Soooo what's new?

I wonder why there are never any core i5/i7 engineering samples for sale.

Currently looking at this motherboard :
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157719
Arround 400 CAD for me.
I think that it would work but I'm not quite sure...

All ASRocks work with engineering samples. I got an Extreme4 on eBay for $140 with bent pins and just used a needle to bend them back. It works perfectly fine. I made sure to get an email with them saying the pins were only bent and not snapped off so if it arrived with snapped pins I could get my money back.

I bought a 2690 v4, and it didn't work on the Gigabyte X99 UD3 with the latest bios (boot loop). Works fine on the MSI X99A SLI PLUS. My other CPU, the 2630 v4 works fine on the Gigabyte though.
