Yes, I reconfigured BIOS. In "Boot" tab turn "Force PXE Boot only" to "disable", change in "Boot Type Order" "Hard Disk" on the top. To determine the contact you want to close, I charted voltage pins. Then checked different combinations, by closing "+" and "ground". Multicore computer do I need for the job. For the rendering of architectural exteriors.
I believe I have the same settings in BIOS, but that jumper is not working for me. I must have something else wrong. Do you know what version board you have? I believe mine is v1.0 and i believe the other versions are v1.1 and v1.2. The later version boards have more connectors on them. I would not think the front panel connector would change between the versions though.Yes, I reconfigured BIOS.

@wildpig1234 - I have discovered the PCIe ports are v2.0. See the image below:I guess you will have to drill custom holes into the case to mount the MB?
Also what's the specs on those pcie slots? just want to make sure that they have adequate wattage supply for gfx cards. are they at least 8x 2.0? will have to get riser card or ribbon cable for them...
It's workable but there's def a fair amount of custom work that will need to be done.
I have confirmed the PS_ON front panel pin. It is in fact the pin circled in blue in the drawing above. I have boosted the +5vSB line from the ATX power supply to +12v using an LM2577 Boost Converter. Once I had the standby line up to 12v, I tested my theory on the PS_ON pin mentioned in previous post. It works hooked up to the GREEN wire on the 24 pin ATX connector. The board will turn on and off via the power switch on the board and windows will even shut down the board.This is great info! Currently these boards are the cheapest dual LGA2011 on ebay. Is the front panel connector yet another fancy Dell thing?
So how do you tell V1.1 from V1.2? That seems to be the big question for me.The easiest way I know how to tell the difference is looking at the SATA ports. The V1.0 board has 2 SATA ports by the mini SAS connector. The V1.1 and V1.2 boards have 4 SATA connectors. Two by the mini SAS and two on the rear of the board near the front panel connector.
@drabadue and @Wictar, you guys are doing an awesome job! I followed your guidelines and successfully powered up my C8220! Thank you so much! Here is my picture:
Meanwhile, my board (v1.0) is capable of booting from a regular SATA hard drive thru its onboard SATA port. I didn't change anything in BIOS or apply additional jumpers.
By they way, do you all like my coolers?

@MiniKnight I believe you can tell the differences visually. I'll study the manual and get back to you.So how do you tell V1.1 from V1.2? That seems to be the big question for me.
@Spun Ducky - Thank you for the advice. I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia and I tried installing and reinstalling them to make sure they were right. The strange thing about installing those drivers, is that the Nvidia Control Panel never came up when you right click on the desktop. Normally you can right click anywhere on the desktop and there will be an Nvidia Control Panel shortcut to allow you to adjust your resolution and color settings. That never showed up on this motherboard. I even tried to uninstall that driver and then install an older driver, just to see if it made a difference - same result.The error 43 is usually related to drivers, defective card, and or insufficient power. I would try a few different drivers first then from their confirm the 12v rail you are tapping into the card has sufficient amperage. This was a message that I have ran into with egpu solutions on laptops.
