All ECC REG.
However, I am recalling that I tried plain regular desktop DDR3 non-ECC (I believe G.Skill 2x8GB 1600) and it did work for sure - just with warning message during POST.
Try to check the jumpers "SYS ID" (bottom of the board) - mine all open.
Regarding the CPU and RAM:
I've been using X5670 and variety of Kingston, Hynix and Samsung DDR3 (1, 2, 4 and 8GB) and all did work.
Have you tested the CPU in another board? Any chances to try the board with another Xeon?
As for me, I have only one board mounted on the metal tray - see this ebay listing for details:
QUANTA DA0F03MBCD0 REV D DUAL FCLGA2011 SYSTEMBOARD FOR INTEL XEON E5 SERIES
Please let me know what particular dimensions you are looking for.
By the way, I've just got my HP power supplies -...
I have wired power through PCI-E connectors on my Corsair HX750 while having the main motherboard cable just shortened because I plan to use this HP PSU eventually:
HP Proliant DL380 G6 G7 ML370 G6 750W Power Supply 511778-001 506821-001
Still have to figure out how to get +5V off that one...
S U C C E S S :cool:
As soon as I took MP off the loop and connected ATX PSU directly, it went through... at least booted into Win7 64
P1/P2 => +12.5V
P3/P4 => Ground
B4 => +5V
All credit goes to s2600gl - knowledge is power!
Have tried that - no go.
Did some measurements (disconnected boards)
MP connector - between D1 and D2 is 10KOhm, MB connector - between D1 and D2 is 1 Ohm
however it might be meaningless to measure pins :confused:
