    Sapphire has relayed to me that this is a motherboard/proc/bios issue. Gigabyte is telling me that they have tried a R9 270X in their board, and it boots fine. (no idea if a 270X toxic, and a E5 2650 proc) Could a ME firmware be the issue here? I'm down to try and load Win 7 Ult on it and see what happens. I am totally out of ideas here guys, any input??

    One Long and 3 Short Beeps refer to a RAM problem for AMI Bios. Maybe you look in the wrong direction. Other thing possible are the video cards but you said you have tryed them on another board and they work, so it remains ram or BIOS or motherboard. Also if you can try to boot your system with i7 CPU because xeons are little picky about everything.

    Here is a little more info on POST diagnostics. - http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

    Also there is a difference on which slots you will put your ram, there are ones for single channel, others for dualchannel and others for quad channel. Consult your motherboard guide about this.

    It's possible that there might be a problem with one the power supply's pci-e power cables (or at least one psu pci-e connector) that connect to the video card.

    Did you use the same pci-e power cables and psu pci-e connectors when you tested each of your video cards in each of the video card slots?
    If yes, retest using different pci-e power cables using different psu connectors.

    Can you test with a different, good quality power supply that will let you test with at least one video card?

    I have used the same PS, with the same cards, with the same memory on my X58 board, and ALL of the cards boot/work just fine. It is definatly not a PS, vid card, nor memory issue. Said cards have been tested in several different computers using Intel, and AMD chipsets.

    I can put a Gen 2 AMD vid card in (HD5830) and the board boots just fine. I don't have access to any other Gen 3 cards to test with.

    Could this be a issue with the E5 Xeon CPU microcode?? I'm totally out of ideas here, with the exception of purchasing another brand motherboard and see if it has the same issues.

    I had a similar problem with my X79-UP4 and a Sandy Bridge Xeon. Starting with F4 BIOS the motherboard would not detect modern GPUs with UEFI VBIOS. Not my Nvidia Kepler cards, nor my Radeon R9 cards. No settings in BIOS made any difference. I talked to Gigabyte Technical Support for a very long time, they simply don't care and want me to buy X99... Very frustrating to say the least.

    Then I tested with a 4820K and no problems. The GPU's showed up as expected etc. Switched back to the Xeon and the GPU's dissapeard. Only worked with he old and terrible F2 BIOS. I don't think Xeons work in this motherboard post F2 BIOS. And the support just sucks. If I buy X99 I will certainly be very careful before I touch anything Gigabyte.

    Interesting, I will Flash back to F2 Bios to confirm your findings, if this IS the case it most CERTAINLY is bios related. Giga support told me that their test system didnt matter if it was a Xeon 8 core or not.... Funny how that works huh??

    They told me the same, "works for us". My Xeon is a four core E5-26XX ES.
