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
I see this is...
I use dunkin donuts 4 cup holders, inexpensive. I like to keep the rigs exposed to get max cooling and or heat dissipation during summer/winter. But i am starting to put things into cases to cut down on my dusting and consolidate...
@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...
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...
Hi, I am selling a Supermicro X11DPL-I Motherboard.
I purchased the mobo at the beginning of 2020, then Covid hit and I was never able to do the build.
*** This board HAS CPU TDP support up to 140W
This is a very nice server board with the higher end network features, IPMI and M.2 support.
Thanks for all the info you have been very helpful @RolloZ170
I contacted a seller and we'll see how that goes.
It will be nice to put these to work. I'll keep you posted!
also thanks for the added info, I will build on that to understand this more
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?
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...
Hi, srry was away for the weekend.
The first chips I had were xeon platinum 8160 es ql1k.\
I realized they were over tdp and had microcode issues but tried anyway. no luck.
then i got another couple es's which i think they were within the tdp range but es's
I don't remember that chip info but I...
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...
Hi, I am selling one of my Servers plus some chips. Thanks for looking.
I have been getting Engineering Sample chips from a contact in HK, these are supposed to come straight from a motherboard manufacturer. I can't verify that but i have purchased them for over the last 2 years and all were...
