@BlueFox @awilson29 Do you know if this modded BIOS supports V4 Xeon E3 processors like the E3-1278LV4 or E3-1265LV4?Mine came a few weeks ago and realized I couldn't boot from the NVME addon card - had the same problem with an X10DRI until I learnt how to mod the SMC bios.
Have included the modded 3.2 Bios from Bluefox. You will need to reset CMOS after install - did mine from a Rufus FreeDos USB.
As usual I accept no responsibility ... yada yada ... use at your own risk
Regrettably I can't tell you. I never wound up purchasing one of these motherboards and have only been hosting the modded BIOS for the community. I've not actually tested it.
@BlueFox Do you believe that the mods made to the BIOS should support V4 CPUs, but just have not tested that?Regrettably I can't tell you. I never wound up purchasing one of these motherboards and have only been hosting the modded BIOS for the community. I've not actually tested it.
I flashed that modded BIOS and tried an E3-1285L v4. Like I said in a previous post, no luck. A v3 xeon works though. But your CPU is different from mine, so YMMV.
haha I once have the same problem! The board is just a rotated ATX size, it fits standard MATX holes perfectlyhey has anyone tried installing this board in a regular desktop/tower case? It seems like it's microatx in width, but extra long EATX/SSI-EEB in length. Not sure what it would even fit in.
The board really does not exceed the width of MATX that much, only about 6cm. The dimension of the board is 24*30 cm and many modern case will fit it. My case is the thermaltake S100, which have plenty space left. I just leave the far right mounting hole unscrewed. You could use your plastic standoffs as well.thanks for drawing in the circles on th emount points.
so maybe I find a really long matx case.... but it will be hard to search on, because it's like matx cases advertise if they have an extra 3 inches of motherboard mounting space.
but I do have a couple of plastic standoffs for motherboards already so those could come in handy when I exceed the regular matx mounting spots....
