    Default x58a-ud3r with xeon engineering samples ?

    Hi all,

    i'm new here, but this board looks very competent for the questions i have.

    I bought a new x58a-ud3r Rev 2.0. I dont know what bios version it has because i have no CPU working on it.

    I have E5530 (AT80602000777AA) and X5660 (B1) - both engineering samples. Is there any bios version supporting these CPUs ? Then i will try to borrow a cpu for a bios update.

    I tried to search with different keywords, but didn't find an exact answer.

    Thanks and br
    Patrick

    Have you tried them with current BIOS? They might be fine,then update to latest BIOS

    i tried both with the shipped version - both not working (both work in a supermicro dual board). if you say, there is a bios version that will run, i will try to get some standard cpu to update.

    Best to use the latest BIOS on gigabytes site,if you save it to a Usb stick formatted in fat32 then you can take the mb to a shop or friends and ask them to put in a 920/930 chip and flash the BIOS using qflash and the Usb stick

    They will probably work fine, but as mentioned above you might need a BIOS update first. Try them and see, that way you do waste time finding some help/CPU to update your BIOS if you can use those CPU's now and update with them

    both cpu are running .... issue was my memory, but i dont understand why. memory controller is inside the xeon cpu, but the gigabyte board doesnt like ECC memory ...

    Probably BIOS doesn't support ecc memory? The memory from the dual socket mb? The ud3 uses non ecc glad you got it working,I didn't think about ecc/non ecc memory

    yes, most boards dont list ecc as supported in the manual, but they do - because of memory controller inside cpu.

    i have supermicro dual board working with ecc, as well as evga sr2 (both 55xx chipsets).

    x58 can handle ecc ... so it has to be bios / gigabyte design problem

    A problem for who? Out of all their users one needs ECC, why should they care for it?
    From my experiance working with ECC, when there's a problem you'd feel it, it had never heplped when a module have failed.
