correct, at taobao is a seller which pre-tests the QL2K(3175x) and/or can open them for TIM redo.

this suggests it works on many motherboards. but it don't work on all std.supermicro/Asus because the TDC and dont't work on ASRock/Gigabyte because of BIOS.
there are few mobo to support step 2 cpu,only if you add the microcode to the bios

I received my Supermicro X11DPI-NT and tried to pair it with 8272CL. Cant manage to boot into BIOS. Black screen. Tested both CPUs in CPU0 socket and result is the same. I also tested mobo with a single 8280L and I was able to boot it and install Windows 10. Any idea what might cause the issue ?
You have to do a VRM mod, RolloZ170 made a good guide how to do it. I do the same, and my dual 8272cl works in X11DPi-NT fine.

hi i am new here, have a nice day all.
have bought lenovo p920 nile nl1019 rev1.1 motherboard and two 8160 QJVX es1 cpus.
by reading hundred pages here i think it would not work.
by reading on google it does seem no one make this QJVX cpus to work anywhere.

if that is truth can anyone recomend any cpu-s that will work on said motherboard? thanks for help.

you need rare expensive motherboard with oldest BIOS

any prod.unit or QS up to supported TDP? will work.
edit:
from lenovo datasheet P920 motherboard:

Voltage Regulator - Intel VR13.0 – 240W TDP Capable

Edit: have heared high current CPUs don't start on P920, so its 240W capable but allows only a TDC=228A.
also there is a different between 240W and high current CPU, there may be 240W CPU with only 228A TDC and vice versa there is a 195W CPU with 255A TDC.

thanks, i asuume no ammount of bios modding will make this cpu work in this mobo. either way i will find some use to parts now that you shed some light as what to look at.

look: this system is much too new. ther is NO BIOS left with ES support. the first BIOS supports already Cascade Lake CPU which makes it imho impossible to work with Skylake early ES.
Are you one of this guys who got a motherboard for free, buying memory for $1000 and then start to cry "ooh why are the processors sooo expensive..." ?

Interesting, I bought a QJW0 a couple of years ago and I've never gotten it to work on my X11SPL-F. It powers up but it doesn't POST. I have BIOS 2.1 on that one.
A vanilla retail Xeon Bronze 3104 works perfectly fine, though.
For all the sellers with a QJW0 at the moment, it looks like there's conflicting information: one screenshot says it's an A2 stepping, but the listing description says B0. Is it actually A2 and not B0?

50651 A2
the seller have no clue or just copy from other faulty listing.
with a little luck it works on SM at BIOS 1.0 but no chance above.

Hey everyone, I’m seeing an abundant supply of 8375C (SRKUS) “QS” processors on eBay for under $1,000.

Any ideas of the maximum memory capacity on these? Also, does ES/QS have proper Optane PMEM support?

Any idea if they’re supported on boards like the SuperMicro X12SPZ-SPLN6F? Looks like the 8375C TDP is 330 watts.

Thanks.

SRKUS or QS, can not be both.
QVLP is 2.80Ghz ES2 stepping C0. (the bad one not showing model)
QWAE is 2.90Ghz ES2 stepping D0 (the good one but still not showing model)

Any idea if they’re supported on boards like the SuperMicro X12SPZ-SPLN6F?
generaly all supermicro UP boards do not run ES with B0/C0 (step 4,5) stepping.
the only known SM board with ES(step 4,5) support is X12DPi-N(T)6
stepping D0 (step 6) runs fine on all boards with latest BIOS so far.
ASRock SC621 and Gigabyte MU72/MD72 do support ES.
Looks like the 8375C TDP is 330 watts.
330Watts is not the problem but supermicro can block that in the future like done on X11SPL / X11SPM boards.

Thanks very much for the reply. So, as I understand, a final stepping SRKUS will work any board?

Hi everybody
I have SUPERMICRO x11-DPI-NT
Bios X11DPi-N19.129 30a B0
Dual Intel XEON 6138 ES QL1L

Nothing to report works very well, stable no problem I think to upgrade to an ESXI 6.7.0 then to 8.0

Have anyone info about QLRX cpu? It is a Skylake-W or Skylake-X?
LGA2066, early B0/L0 stepping but i want to know it is an unlocked multi or locked?
Seller tells me that is a QS of 7900x and all features almost the same as the retail, but i think he is lying. I only see that a clocks are much lower.

ES version of unlocked retail cpus is also unlocked?
