    Took about a week. Ordered July 23rd, was delivered on July 30th to the east coast.

    I was also looking at the QQ89. Too bad they raised their prices $70 in the last week on them.

    Anyone have any information on QEY8 ? Supposed to be a 2696v3 but some say it only has 14 cores instead of the 18 on the E5-2696v3.

    Damn, oh well. I already took a $500+fees hit reselling the 5115s, since they were listed as 6148s and I had them sitting for months while I collected the rest of the parts for my build.

    I messed up reselling the Golds. Got my new Platinums in today, and it won't POST. Trying to contact the seller about what BIOS thsy used for the S2600ST series, but I'm having issues downgrading over IPMI.

    Any opinion on QKG9 (Intel Xeon Platinum 8160 ES QKG9 1.5GHz 24C LGA3647(Socket P) Skylake-SP 145W)? Only 99 on ebay, multiplier is considerable lower - 21 but 48 threads are 48 threads.

    After a bit of back and forth with the seller, can confirm that the 8260 QQ89 will not work in the S2600STB.

    Now have 2 8276L QQBE on the way.

    For some reason this comes up on cpu-world as a Xeon 7140N, but the screenshots confirm it's a 8276L. Do s-specs get reused?

    Hello everyone.
    I am Japanese. I don't know much English so I use Google Translate to speak.

    After updating the X11DAi-N BIOS to 3.1, the B1 code is displayed and I cannot boot.
    So, referring to the thread here, I downgraded the BIOS to 2.0b.
    However, [All channels are disabled due to memory test] and code 53 appear on the screen and remain stopped.

    My device
    M / B: X11DAi-N
    CPU: Xeon Platinm 8180 ES 1.80 Ghz × 2
    RAM: 32GB 2993Mhz ×4
    PSU: 1000W

    What has already been done​
    1. BIOS downgrade 2.0A, 2.0, 2.0B (I don't have a 2.1 BIOS, so I can't verify it. If anyone knows the download URL, please let me know.)
    2. Start with one RAM and one CPU
    3. Clear CMOS
    4. Reset settings
    I tried the above but the situation was not changed.
    The serial number is displayed as 123456789. Also, the BIOS has been downgraded to 2.0b, but it shows 3.0a. You can see this in the screenshot I posted.
    Please let me know if you know anything!
    Thank you.

    Email Supermicro for the 2.1 Bios.

    Were the CPUs working before upgrading to 3.1?, I think X11DAi-N is not compatible with skylake ES even with 2.1 BIOS, It's XPDH-i/T with BIOS versions up to 2.x the recommended board. With cascadelake ES, the compatibility is more spread and you do need the lastest BIOS.

    Ask the seller you get the CPUs from.

    Yes, it worked fine before the BIOS upgrade ...
    The version at that time is 3.0a.
    Try BIOS2.1 even if it fails.
    If the test fails, I will contact the seller!
    Thank you for your reply! :->

    Whelp, QQBE won't work with S2600STB either. Keeping these and going to a X11DPH-T now. Hopefully I can sell the S2600STB for a decent price.

    Up and running on X11DPH-T :) Definitely looks like SM is to go-to for ES/QS chips.

    So I'm in the process of setting up a home virtualization server for learning purposes. I need some help with an issue related to my hardware. I have an EVGA X99 FTW K motherboard and ES Xeon E5 2695 V3. The problem is that the motherboard is not recognizing any device connected to SATA ports. I have tried:
    -Using different SSDs, and hard drives
    -different sata data and power cables
    -running linux on live usb, still no drives visible
    -connect cdrw drive, drive gets power but is not seen by bios
    -resetting cmos x3
    -using different power supply

    I have no idea what the issue is, my friend had this motherboard and cpu combo working fine before me, and I need some help clearing this up please!!
    Thanks in advance.

    Check that the SATA ports are enabled in BIOS.

    its a shame there are no cheap SM dual socket motherboards.

    I can't test this until after I decommission my current server. But I created a BIOS mod for the X9DAi that should support ES CPUs off the latest BIOS version. Since this board doesn't have IPMI, the only way to recover if it doesn't work will be to desolder the chip. It's not a very complex procedure - I did it when I first purchased the board years ago to downgrade. I also added the module that supports NVMe boot.

    If anyone wants to give it a go off a spare board, please report back. Otherwise I'll be testing in a few weeks. Also included is the hard to find factory 1.0 BIOS that supports ES chips.

    https://mb300sd.net/files/X9DAi.7z

    I can attempt this for any other boards with an early BIOS that supports ES and no support in later versions. No guarantees it won't brick, but recovery should be easy if it has IPMI.

    Here's X11SPM9_521 with the ES microcode
