Hello! Anyone around? I have had a Z10 in my closet since January or so... didn't have the $ to build it. I just got the RAM, kind of expensive so I just got 2x8 from one of the models listed in the official compatibility list, to be on the safe side.
Now I'm checking out the ES cpus on Ebay. The best bang for the buck according to vray benches would be the 2670 V3, but there are both QEYK QFSA versions... has anyone tested any of them?
This is no longer an avantgarde setup... I've been running 2x 2699v4s on the Z10PE-D8 WS for almost 2 years... however, there still isn't a very well documented tutorial on BIOS settings for the Z10PE-D8.
I believe I have decent settings, but I'm by no means an expert. I would however like to see someone else's BIOS settings to compare. If there are any Z10PE-D8 owners around that are willing to share their full BIOS settings, I think it would be very valuable for all of us on this thread.
Is anyone willing to take some screencaps of theirs?
I recently installed an Intel Optane 900p (280GB, 2.5in w/U.2-M.2 Connector). The 4k random reads and writes aren't performing as advertised. They're usually about 50% slower than the Intel spec and independent benchmarks, regardless of queue depth or threads. On rare occasions, however, the performance is about what one would expect. Sequential read and writes are consistently as advertised. This issue was initially noticed as part of daily use, usually when compressing or extracting a large number of small files or compiling C/C++ projects consisting of a thousand or more files. Again, the drive is usually slower than what I paid for, but sometimes quick as you like. I'm able to reproduce the performance variation without changing any external factors, and it happens when using the onboard M.2 port or a M.2 PCIe adapter. I've included two screenshots, one captured directly after the other without changing anything in-between. Any ideas, anyone?

Hi, I have Z10PE D16WS.
ASUS turbo ratio lock (ATRC) is a just an useless feature. It locks your xeons to maximum turbo even on idle. (Causes idle power consumption jump to 230-240 watts from 90-100 watts).
For example I have dual E5 2686v3 (18C), it locks my CPUs to 2.3GHz, even on single core load.
Turbo unlock BIOS mod is much better because i get 3.05Ghz on all 36 cores at full stress. If only 10 cores are enabled on each CPU i get 3.6ghz on 20 cores.
