As I already stated, all pins are straight.
Sometimes , there are dirt ( example: heatsink compond ) on the pin , causing poor contacts.
I usually spray alcohol into the CPU sockets, wait 15 min for it to dry.

I have E5-2667v4 2.9 ES QHVD for sale. Mint condition but doesn't work with my GA-X99 UD3. :(
You think I could change 2600 microcodes from MSI bios to GIGABYTE?

I have this processor laying around and i was wondering if anyone had any more info on it. I checked the list of Xeon V3 processors Nathan P posted and found a processor that he has no information about.

I was wondering if anyone had any more info on this than i have and if anyone had any idea as to what kind of motherboard would support this processor.

Its QDBW - 14 core processor clocked at 2.1Ghz.

Thanks!

I was told ASUS mobos support this cpu.
Have you already tried to run it with any mobo?
I wonder what's maximum boost for 1 core and all core

I have so many diffrent boards, the one i used to test all ES cpu's with wouldn't accept this chip so i sold it off. Too bad:(

Asrock x99 would worked.

The Ebay link is for a $490 CPU that is "For Parts and not working". It is too much of a gamble for a questionable and early early ES CPU chip.

It just doesn't make sense to buy a early ES CPU nowadays, QS stepping or nothing.
I would spent the $500 on new AMD CPU or wait for the firesale of E5 v3 CPU.

Hello

has anyone seen this one before?

✅INTEL XEON ES E5-2696 v3 2696v3 2.30GHZ SERVER CPU PROCESSOR 2699 SKU HASWELL | eBay

It says its a 2696 v3 QEY8, but the price seems too good for an 18 core 2.3-3.5ghz. I've seen them popping sometimes in ebay but i'm not sure about motherboard or ram compability on this one.
it is a ES2 - ASRock X99 should work, but i have newer saw a screenshot of this cpu.
IMHO the price is to high for an ES2, wait for a QS or try a different platform.

Yea i didn't notice the "For parts not working", even that some sellers state the they tested with a hp server gen 9 and the cpu was recognized (ccould be ILO just being silly) . Here is another one

Intel Xeon E5-2696V3 18-Core 2.30GHz Processor 9.6 GT/s 45MB 145W SR1XK AS-IS 6927053285960 | eBay

Why would they sell a non working cpu for 500 usd, there is not that much gold or unobtainium there, is it? :)
That's the seller i got my dual 2696 V3 from. He had a ton of them as the supply got tighter he raised prices.

I realize why it did not work.

ASUS server(2way) mobos have microcode updated on latest bios. So QD variants should work with them.
ASUS consumer mobos(x99 series) do not have microcode updated on any verision of bios. QD variants are not supported. So you should replace the microcode with other one.
I removed 306F2(haswell-e/ep production models) microcode and added 306F0. The cpu is on the way and Im gonna run it with my modded bios in couple hour as it delivers.

GIGABYTE mobos also do not have the microcode updated in bios. it wont work.
ASRock mobos which launched with Haswell-E/EP have microcode updated for Haswell-E/EP only versions. After Broadwell-E/EP support, they removed it to add some space.

So I'm upgrading my main server and managed to snag 2x Xeon 8176 Platinums that are QL1F ES2 (Intel Xeon Scalable Processor Platinum 8176 ES CPU LGA 3647 1.8GHz 28 Core QL1F | eBay). I talked with the seller and he confirmed that dual configuration works and has full VT-D capabilities. I'm planning to use this on my unRAID server with a lot of VMs and docker containers.

But looking at it more, I still feel that it may have been a risky purchase. Are there any suggested tests I should run to make sure everything works fully (including VT-D, cores can boost properly, etc) I have a 30 day return window and hope to run all the proper tests beforehand.

Here are my specs on the server:
CPU: 2x Xeon 8176 Platinum 28 Core QL1F ES2
Mobo: Supermicro X11DPH-T
RAM: NEMIXRAM 128GB (2x64GB) DDR4-2666MHz ECC LRDIMM (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D3ZQJX9/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
NIC: Chelsio T422-CR
HBA: IBM M1015 + Chenbro CK23601
Chassis: Supermicro SC836BA-R920B

Many thanks in advance!

Hi All,

I have a 20 core QHUZ marked Xeon. It works fine under Windows 10 but VMX / virtualization support seems unstable with Hyper-V. Are these chips OK for virtualization under Linux using KVM? (Need to replace my Server motherboard and considering using this chip in my virtualization server)

Hi everyone!

I wanted to ask if a QHUY E5-2683 V4 would be suitable for a server environment on 24/7 but not mission critical. Used as a Plex media server primarily (many active users and too many stupid amazon fire sticks for now) Costs about $600 but includes a compatible motherboard. It is stepping 0 and revision B0 with the full 16 core and 32 threads and about 9%~ performance delta on cinebench compared to OEM. Im open to all recommendations other than dual CPU setups as I am switching to a single CPU system (too many board errors/failures) and multiple GPUs.

Thanks everyone!

Awesome! Congrats on that. I was very bumped out when I found out about this thread on anandtech shortly after buying a pair of 2630 v4 QKRH CPU. I remember V3 ES were still cheap around that time too but I was looking for something with lower power consumption. I would have forgone any of that. Unfortunately, the V4's aren't capable of this exploit.

2697 v3 @ 3.5GHz!

Intel Xeon E5 2697 v3 @ 3505.45 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR

==========Additional Info========== 2018-05-12

TDP is unlockable by Intel XTU
(only for TDP. other settings lock the multiplier back. You'll have to reboot the system)

For Rampage V Extreme

Vcore offset -0.070v
Cache offset -0.050v
Agent offset -0.050v

Vcore LLC Level 6

VR settings are auto


The result is that multiplier x35 can hold on load.
Linx 0.9.2 gets x32 multiplier. The temperature is around 82C.

I ran into a strange Q-spec on a Xeon Scalable proc and no matter how much I dig, I can't seem to find much of anything in terms of info on this spec.

The Q-spec is QJVX and states 1.50Ghz on the IHS. Based on the clock-speed I was thinking maybe it was one of the 28-core variants, but other than that I'm left without a clue.

Anyone know anything about this one?

What are some good verified offers off fleabay right now for V2 E5 CPUs (both 16xx and 26xx) and how about the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor Gold 6142 with the B0 stepping?

such a low baseclock is mostly used in Xeon PHI.pls. post a picture of this processor.
