Shame it did not work. I am quite certain they are suffering compatibility issues. Since i got mine from working quanta system, but oddly it worked paired with DDR3 ram.
Someone before mentioned they were sold in these quanta systems, think it is earlier in this thread.
I suspected mine came from Quanta server like that, but was never sure. I dont have access to those anymore, but i am quite sure, as you said they worked there.
When talking about Supermicro, would C612 boards be the only ones that would work or just best shot?
As you said, i am still...
I have took list that is in first post of this thread searched QEYx CPUs on internet. What i found is that they are B0, B0/L0 or L0 stepping. What i went in detail are B0 ones, since that is mine. What i found out they are only working on asus, asrock and supermicro workstation boards, but also...
@John Titor Im kinda close to same conclusion, dead CPU or no CPU/stepping support. Everything else is checked thoroughly, boards, PSU, ram, as i said everything works with E5-2678 also an ES.
But to make definite conclusion i have to try supermicro, or something similar.
Since my feeling...
Me again with Xeon E5-2696 v3 ES QEY8 issues.
Finaly got ECC ram Samsung 16GB M393A2G40DB0-CPB.
Both boards, Asus X99A usb3.1 AND AsRock X99 Extreme 4, same issue no improvement. Asus one hangs on B0 POST error black screen, AsRock no post balck screen no beeps.
Tried all ram slots, almost...
I see. I was worried that having some number of sticks in system in necessary for normal POST process, thus need for dual/quad configuration for successful boot.
Ill go for one stick of the memory from supported list just to see if CPU and motherboard combo is working normally, then later buy...
Thanks for response! I have only find Samsung module M393A2G40DB0-CPB on both boards compatibility list.
Would it be safe to get something else? What is common safe, go for ECC memory? Should i avoid branded hp etc memory?
Sorry for this much questions, first time building this kind of machine.
Been tinkering with both asrock x99 extreme4 and asus x99-a, still cant get past balck screen.
Do i maybe need ECC ram for Xeon E5-2696 v3 ES QEY8?
At the moment im using Gskill F42400C15Q-16GRR, quad channel 4x 4GB DDR4. Also tried with adata 16GB 3200MHz from my ryzen rig but same issue...
I managed to get my hands on Xeon E5-2696 v3 ES QEY8, its B0 stepping.
As some people suggested here i went with AsRock X99 Extreme 4 board for it, since it seemed they have best support for ES QS samples.
But unfortunately i cant get it to post.
Tried all bios versions. Situation is...
