    Default GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 + Gainstown CPU (Xeon E5520, E5540 or L5520) Modified Bios and/or MB Mod

    I have a GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 MB, and I was wondering if I could get a modified bios (and/or get a mod for the board) to get this V1.0 board to support Dual QPI Xeons?

    I know the V2.0 of this same board will work. I already have a X58A-UD3R v2.0 board with these CPU's running in them and I wanted to get the UD5 fired back up.

    the CPU support list for the V1.0 board doesn't have any gainstown CPU's on it's list but they're there for v2.0 and I was hoping to get this working.

    I was also able to get Gainstown's to work in an EVGA X58 board after putting in the latest bios for the board and performing a small short on the board to disable the 2nd QPI, I'm hoping for such a simplistic mod for this board.

    Let me know

    OS = Win7 64 Bit
    CPU = i7-980X @ 3.8Ghz 166x23 cooled ba a Corsair H100
    Mem = 6GB 2000Mhz Kingston HyperX running at 2044Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-1T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3
    GPU = 2x EVGA 580GTX 1.5GB in SLI
    HD = 3x Intel 40GB X25-V in Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)

    Benching MB's... Asus P5Q and Gigabyte 890FXA-UD7... too many CPU's and RAM sticks to list. :)

    Soo... I'm guessing that's going to be a no?

    That's correct. I would recommend an attempt at exchanging that for a rev. 2.0 board with GB Support.

    Unfortunately my board is past the 3yr warranty period. I don't think they would go for that.

    that's unfortunate that I couldn't mod the board like the other I have :(
