Can you post the PCI ID of the card? You can find the PCI ID under "Hardware Ids" of the device properties within Device Manager.@hmartin - after I posted that, I did some research on the X540-AT2 and realized that was a 10Gb card. I do not have a NIC other than the onboard ports. And they are for sure 1Gb. I am not sure why my device manager shows them as X540-AT2's. Maybe I installed the wrong driver? I wouldn't think so, but its possible.

The PCI ID of the X540-AT2 should be 8086:1528
Really interesting, since the C6220 II spec sheet (PDF) doesn't state the 10Gb is onboard.Sure enough, the hardware ID is 8086:1528

I had no idea that this board had a 10Gb ethernet connector. It is a C6220 according to BIOS, but I always guessed it was a C6220 II based on the physical connector layout. I am really surprised though, as there is no documentation supporting this board to have 10Gb onboard ethernet. Now I am tempted to buy a 10Gb NIC to throw in another computer to see if it will actually link at 10Gb.
The part number for the board is 0083N0.
Hi all, new to the thread. Can anyone tell me if the C6220 node/mobo is the exact same size as the C6100? I am thinking of buying a case for a C6220 here: Promotion DELL C6100 DIY tower chassis 1366 silent tower server empty chassis
The board part #: 9N44VIs this your first server <unknown> motherboard or another... before to start <switch on>(fireup) it <in first time> you always should start with BIOS reset. Check this way and please report here.
@igoresz, I actually ended up buying a C8220 my self since I could not get the c6220 node to work and I was able to successfully flash BIOS to version 2.7.1 as well as the latest version of BMC v2.62 and everything is working just fine for me.Regarding the UPDATE of BIOS (C8220, W6W6WG).
I was on BIOS version 2.1.2 The New version from the www site should be 2.7.1.
I chose this one because it was for 64 bit and was a .exe file that would install bios for me.
After reboot... I have usual normal blinking of 2 lamps... power button lights Green... but on the monitor there is a light dark screen without any letters, signs or stars.
I tried to reset bios/cmos... and... noresults. May be I did it wrong way.
Probably BMC successfully works above of all this situation, I will try to find something right there.
People, do you have any idea how to rescue it? Please help?

I started to read [this] thread. It is about c6220, but it's usefull enough (the "8220x marketing project" was started from 6100/6105/6200).I could not get the c6220 node to work
This (rare) board was already used here once. See above info about it: page-2, Wictar.I've just received a second C8220 board that I'll be testing but the strange part is that I can't seem to find any details based on the board number which is DP/N 0CNW04 so I have no idea what it will support and I hope it works.
Huh, interesting that it doesn't have those end connectors on the MB. I didn't pay attention.@iLya, thank you. I will try.

Sounds like a fun project you did there.Regarding meaning/significance/implication, my fun idea was to make 'strong'/'compacted' pc with 2 average\carefull power cpu(16cores\32process) 3x pcie/gpgu gen3 unit (incl 1x30usd 160wt Tesla) for 150-250 usd totally. I have collected\realized it. I used an oldie usual atx psu, self made primitive psu cabling, amd heatsinks 15years old, ... and some of luck on ebay\aliexpress. It's like long story about hobbies of enthusiast type people. Afterall I set up all correctly I will give this pseudo pc to one of my sons, one of them is already interesting what does his papa create there))
p.s. sorry for my english, I almost do not use it in RL, only for this kind of forums).
