    Outch ! (is it special smilies just for you !?) Now my Yoda wanna try my modded BIOS... brrrrr... i'm really afraid

    Please my Yoda, could you update your signature, according to your sign/specs you have P35-DS3L !

    It is really useful to complete and keep your PC Specs or Signature up to date in Settings /My Profile (motherboard, CPU, BIOS version modified or not ...) - Thank you all .

    Does anyone know if I still have to do a clean install if I change out my motherboard for another gigabyte x79? im on a raid setup and read somewhere that it will just fail because of identity or something.
    A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING WORKS PROPERLY

    No special smilies for me, but here are some of my favorites, right click on each one and use the Save Image As option and they're yours forever:



    BTW, I also have:
    • Q9650 cpu
    • Samsung 256 GB 840 Pro ssd
    • Cooler Master HAF XB case
    • Cooler Master Seidon 120XL push/pull AIO water cooler
    to go with my "new" P35-DS4 (rev: 2.0)

    Update my signature? Naw, too much work.

    Question Re: GIGABYTE Modified Bios

    Hello, can i do this myself if there s no other way ?

    thx ShuTTeR

    and want to Upgrade my Phenom II CPU ..i flashed the latest FEF Bios
    but .. there is NO official support for the Vishera CPUs only some Bulldozer ones.
    I want to buy an 8320 or 8350 FX CPU for this Mainboard ! it can handle 125W.

    so my Question is there a modded Bios already avaliable with Vishera CPU support?

    and if not i hope it can be done ? ..for example look at the GA-78LMT-USB3 any rev ..
    This has a nice Support Bulldozer+Vishera support. The AHCI Rom should be replaced too.

    thank you

    @virtualfred


    You might find this document interesting. (I certainly know I did, a while back.) Well, hell, lots of folks might find it interesting.


    I may have mentioned the C606 SAS ports can do RAID5. And they can. And it's ridiculously fast. But according to Gigabyte, they can't.
    http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www...pec-update.pdf - page 11.


    Here's where it gets not fun. To enable RAID5 on the C606 SAS, you're looking for SCU PF DevID 1D64h which may or may not be true, paired to SCU VF DevID 1D54h. If and when you find those, you need to find your PCH Stepping and refer to the CRID table. You have to fix up the UEFI so that on suspend it writes 1Dh to D31:F0(08h) - otherwise you may lose the array on suspend. That's not a bug - it's working as intended.
    Because you're wondering, here's the thing: C606 1D68h and C606 1D64h are not distinct parts. See page 50 of the Intel datasheets. There is only one C606 SKU - BD82C606.


    Somebody else did the work for me (and doesn't wanna share - fair enough) since it was outside my realm of expertise. The problem as I understand is thus: normal RSTe ROM load is fine. You just have to hook SAS to 1D64h instead of 1D68h.
    That's the real problem - it's extreme low-level. In UEFI land. Which means - well, I don't know what all it means. On ROMBIOS8 it would be a matter of changing PCI IRQ Routing, DMI, registers and pointers. (Remember that the RAID configuration itself is within the RSTe load.)


    Anyone up for taking on the challenge so we can get some more RAID5 on SAS capable boards out there? Unfortunately, this is about the extent of help I can provide other than testing. The BIOS version I have with it was mostly done by someone else who doesn't want it shared.

    Hi all,

    I have the Gigabyte GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI. I want to use this with an Intel Xeon 2697 V2. I know it isn't currently supported, is this something that could be added with a BIOS modification?

    Short answer: maybe but probably not.

    Long answer: technically, the X79S-UP5-WIFI (1.0 and 1.1) can support any Intel Xeon E5 (LGA2011) CPU as the C606 PCH is designed for 1-4 socket systems. Supermicro currently offers a number of LGA2011 boards which support 1600/2600 including v2. e.g. X9SRA. So from a mechanical and electrical perspective, yes, the 2697v2 is compatible.
    However, the 1.1 explicitly supports up to the E5-2637v2 with BIOS "F4" (IB-E ucode update) but not the 2697v2 for some reason. Without knowing exactly WHY the 2697v2 didn't make the list (I suspect core count is the root cause) it's impossible to say for sure. But honestly, unless you're actually really working all 12/24 - which is not real likely - I'd recommend selling the 2697 and going for an E5-1660v2 which gains you a full GHz of clock.

    They're ES so I can't sell them. I use Keyshot which is a CPU intensive rendering software, so the more cores the better. This was going to supplement my already existing 2x 2697 V2 render server. If anyone has the knowhow to add the support it would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your reply. :)
