    Default Does GA-X58A-UD5 (rev. 1.0) support Xeon x5660?

    Gigabyte's cpu support list only lists rev. 2 of the motherboard as supporting the x5660, but I was wondering if anyone has tried rev. 1? Thanks.

    most boards that don't support this CPU require some sort of bios mod to negate the 2nd QPI lane that the CPU has.

    my EVGA board (pre e770) had a mod posted online. but I've never found one for EX58's or X58A's v1.0... I've tried looking. if you find one please post it as I have an X58A that I could mod to get working.

    Vin

    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire

    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.

    Hello , i have the board and after reading this statement , i cannot see a reason for x5600 xeons not to run on a UD5 rev 1.0 too(with latest bios) . Checking this , i can see that rev 1.0 ud3r and ud5 apart from the same "official compatibility" restrictions , they share the same bios updates too. Anyhow , i'll probably pull the trigger for a x5650 and post the results here.

    Please do, I have the same board (although limp) I think it would be worth while to get CPU to give it a go.\

    prob not much help, but ive been using and ocing a x5650 on the older EX58-UD5 (not on the cpu support list, no mod needed) cant see a reason why it wouldn't work if other Xeons,32nm,6 cores were supported)

    Hello ,

    according to gigabyte list , all EX58-UD5 revisions support the x5600 xeons while my x58 ud5 rev 1.0 not. I searched /asked in all major forums (here , OCN ,Ocuk ,etc) but no one has test x5600 xeons on that mobo yet. My only hope are some successful reports with rev 1.0 ud3r and ud7 ,but who knows. If i succeed i'll be the first of my kind!

    You are right man (i was slapdash) , and for some reason gigabyte refers only xeon x5500 series on that list ?? (not x5600) . But still , EX UD5 series officially supports much more xeons than mine , so better odds
