    I have used both, The p.4 is a better bios than the p.5 both will work though. So you will need either a retail x99 Haswell chip or know some one that can lend you one

    Ok, will do it tomorrow! I use my local service, they have this thing that can flash the bios chip without the CPU :)

    Thanks for the help! I will post tomorrow whether it worked or not!

    For the Raider you will need a cpu, I do know some motherboard are able to update the bios without a cpu. What board are you planing to use?.

    I assume he will take out the bios chip and flash it separately without the board;)

    I am planning to use this one X99A RAIDER | MSI Global | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design

    No, i did not mean the feature that allows bios update without the CPU, like some of Asus motherboards have. I just use this local PC service that has some sort of a machine (don't know exactly how it looks), they just extract the bios chip from the mobo, flash it and then solder it back in :)

    The bios chips are solder to the board is pretty risky on the x99 Raider.

    I think it should be stickied somewhere that the x99 Msi Raider ships with the oldest bios only supporting haswell v3. It works very well and just needs a bios update to p.4 and above to work with broadwell es v4's.

    I guess this is what those guys do, 'cause from what i saw, they did not solder anything in my Krait Edition.

    That's a bios programmer but typically you need removable bios chips. If it's soldered you can't use a bios programmer and would have to short the bios chip or somehow de-solder and re-solder it.

    Just noticed that your CPU does have a B0 revision as stated in the CPU-Z, whereas mine just has an empty field. Also, in the "specification" field there is a small difference: yours have the "R" sign and mine is just "?". Do you think this might cause the incompatibility of this CPU even with the Raider motherboard with P.4 bios?

    I havnt taken a look yet, I updated all my software e.g cpuz, hwinfo 64 and aida64. Before I would get inconsistencies in my readings up until I updated the software its possible that your software is dated.

    Ok, so i got myself a nice little x99a raider. As expected, the system did not boot out of the box. I will try to update the bios tomorrow to the P.4 version and hopefully this is going to work!

    So i got the 2x 2695v3 es referenced earlier today but have a weird issue - the board I am trying to use them in will not power on.
    Basic power is there (fans & ipmi working), but neither power on via power button nor IPMI control actually works.

    Now the board is a used one as well (Supermicro X10DRi-T4+), and i have not been able to test it before.
    It has Bios 2.0 so should work even with a v4 (my X10SRi does).

    So is that a common behavior for (ES) CPU issues? Is that the "System will not boot" issue as described for the X99 boards?

    Or is there another issue more likely?
    Thanks:)

    Whats the stepping on the CPU's if you can tell ?

    Sounds like they are early ES chips.

    QFQR E5-2695 v3 , Stepping 2 according to screenshot.
    Specifically wanted a later stepping to have less issues :p
