    Hi @RolloZ170, as you know I purchased the Intel Xeon Gold 5218 ES version qq8m for one of my 2 - X11DPL-I's (140TDP) For the second board I was looking at the Intel Xeon Gold 6148F QS QN3G 20C 2.4GHz 3.1/3.7GHz 27.5MB 150W https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/xeon_gold/6148f I see this is...

    @RolloZ170 Thanks for all your help, it's nice to have expertise that is so accomating and available. I have been sitting on those 2 - X11DPL-i boards for a while now but finally decided to get a Xeon Gold 5218 ES2 QQ9M 125 tdp, I only purchased one just to be sure. I am very happy and will...

    Hi @RolloZ170, I'm back w/my (2) X11DPL-i, I want to get one up and running soon. Still using the first link you gave me... geoShip Wondering if anything changed, also saw you did well with yours. How hard was it to mod and does it give any better cpu options than the Intel Xeon Gold 5218 ES...

    Ok, not really sure what I am looking at but I assume that is some kind of validation. hmm MC Extractor must be microcode extractor, so my guess would be that it's an extraction from the bios (from the blue bar) so you must have gotten the QQ8M = 50655 A0 from some database or chip info? I...

    So from what i saw from the geo link this seems to be a nice match for the X11DPL-i Intel xeon QQ8M CPU ES Gold 5218 Processor 16 Core 32 Thread 2.1G CPU so your saying this will work with the latest 3.5 bios? if so that's something to think about. Gen2 and 64 threads for about 400, hmmmmm...

    I have 2 - SuperMicro X11DPL-i Motherboards. I wasn't able to use my es or qs chips because of the microcode problem. I tried to go back to something like bios 2.1 but that didn't work. The motherboards have been collecting dust since then. I have bios 3.2 on them now (2019) But now I see...
