Compared my Setup to what der8auer was testing on a retail CPU. Something is very wrong on his side. But I'm pretty astonished what i'm getting out of my CPU, expected much lower results.

His score:

Mine with 2400MHz RAM and the CPU also at 3.4 GHz. Also he has all the benefits with proper RAM timings @ 2666 MHz, a retail CPU, new AGESA update and a Chiller on the CPU o_O

so sad that there is nothing for supermicro 3647 socket boards ))) i'm considering buying same chip and mobo as yours, there was a listing £400 on ebay for 1.6ghz sample and something over £500 for 1.9ghz :-D

I've got the 1.6 GHz sample but it runs only at 1.4 GHz on allcores stock. Overclocking should be possible on any mainboard. But keep in mind that these ES CPUs only run with early Bios versions, so a flasher might be required to roll back and you might not be able to use newer AGESA updates.

i will probably stick to supermicro as when it comes to es cpus this widely supports most of these, if the cpu and motherboard will boot up then i will be able to flash an older firmware) :)

Rolling back from Vers. 1.0c to 1.0 wasn't possible with AFUefi, not even with the /GAN operator. Afuwin is useless on the H11SSL-i board there's a 50/50 chance that the flash will crash the system.

Afudos doesn't find any flashable chips and won't work at all. Just believe me, i did at least 20 flashs on this board now. But maybe you'll be lucky and receive a board with ver. 1.00.

Hello,

I recently bought a Supermicro X11SPG-TF board. I already figured out that a basic ATX power supply won't work, what power supplies are you using and do you use a power distributor? Also, if I modified an adapter to fit the required pinout specifications of this board could I use my ATX power supply with the adapter or would the current be too low compared to a server PSU?

Motherboard pinout: http://prntscr.com/m8yq1y

Thanks.

I had that pinout on a H8DGG, I just repined the ATX connector with some extra 12v cables from a Pcie connector. If you have a PSU with different 12v rails check that you have rails with enough power connected. If you look out for that, a ATX PSU is going to work just fine.

I see, thanks for the quick feedback. I really appreciate it. I will try this and if it doesn't work out I'll just get a 700W redundant PSU and a Power Distributor.

Don't worry it'll work fine, if you don't mess up ;)

That's what mine looked like, just insulate and ziptie away the cables you don't need anymore

Looks good, I'm getting the adapter tomorrow so I won't have to directly modify my PSU. I'll let you know how it worked out. :)

Apparently some ebay buyer managed to get one of the blank x299 CPUs to work, but the information surrounding it is quite lacking.

Not sure if I'm allowed to link the seller, but if you search the above title in sold items you can probably find the review. Couldn't find anything beyond this yet though.

Hello,

I'm trying to reconnect the cables to a new adaper, but I keep wondering which cable is the P5V_STBY.
Is it the purple one? I'm kind of using your picture as a guide, would you mind uploading another picture from different angle?

Thanks.

Sold the PSU with Board a long time ago, can't provide you with another picture.

Purple is normally 5V Standby, just use take a look at a normal ATX connector pinout.
