    The recommendation at the beginning of the thread was to stay away from QE** V3 and stick to QF** for <14 core Or QG** for higher cores.
    But I think lot of folks have used QE** V3 without issues. Motherboard compatibility is also a driving factor.

    Hello.
    Recently i have found some ES Xeon-SPs. These are QLKN and QLQ9. Sellers recommend Supermicro X11DPH.
    But some of them says that X11DPi-N will also work, and some that this mobo is incompatible.
    Should i even try ES Xeons or go with AMD 2990WX? Motherboard choice is not a problem.
    Do i need special BIOS for Supermicro mobo?
    I'm pretty experienced, but LGA3647 is a totally new platform for me.
    Thank you in advance.

    E5-2667 v3 QEYA
    E5-2650 v4 QHV6
    E5-2658 v4 QH2N
    E5-2690 v3 QEYJ

    I think its a pretty general rule to stay away from ES and try to go for QS instead. The v3 haswell had many ES steppings before coming to a final version. I'd avoid the QE-codes entirely if at all possible. For E5-26xx v3 id look for QF or even QGxx. For E5-26xx id look for QKxx.
    For Skylake-SP its QMxx. The are always variations among SKUs depending on what core count is in the package.
    Its always a gamble if an ES will work in your motherboard. And will you get updates? A bios update might even brick the board. Or brick is maybe the wrong phrase. It might only work with QS and up.

    You may be ok. Search thread and folks have been using QE* V3 without issues. Lot depends on Mobo.
    I had a QH* V3 on my watch and but was busy in a meeting when the auction ended and it went for under $120 few hours ago

    I'm using QLQ9 on x11dph-i. There is no need for any special BIOS. If you don't need server features, I would recommend 2990wx, unless you get a good deal for the ES chips.

    Kupaloid, thank you very much! This setup seems perfect to my needs. 2990WX have very unbalanced memory subsystem - 2 "CPUs" from 4 does not have their own memory. Pair of Xeons have 6 channels each. Now i have to choose between 16 and 24 core model (2,8 vs 2,4 GHz stock, but both have x35 turbo, AFAIK). Also can you provide me with HWInfo or CPU-Z screenshot?

    BTW, anyone can tell me, if Corsair Obsidian 900D is anyhow compatible with Supermicro X11DPX?

    Kupaloid, these are not trustworthy. But i believe you. They guarantee moneyback. So i finally decided to go with ES Xeon SPs. Already reserved 2 QLQ9s.

    Well, i ended up buying a QL32 4c/8t 3.2ghz Kaby Lake 1151 A0 Xeon ES for $65 AUD + fees. I'll keep this thread posted on how it goes.

    Hey guys,

    Can anyone list the x99 brands that will work with V4 ES?

    I learned the hard way that no Gigabyte and no Asus will support them, only V3 ES. I saw in this thread that AsRock support.

    What about other ones: MSI, Supermicro, EVGA and Intel?

    i've used 3 models and never had a problem the only requirement is latest bios for broadwell support in order to run V4 Cpus so these were as follows:

    GA-X99UD4 - worked fine with ecc and no-ecc udimms, and also had moded bios which allowed E5 4627 V3 QS QH9E running all cores 3.2ghz overclocked easily to 3.3 all 10 cores - sadly there was no hyper threading..
    GA-X99-DESIGNARE-EX currently own and running with XEON E5-2650 V3 QEYN, tested with 2133mhz no-ecc/ ecc udimms and ecc rdimms no issues whatsoever
    MSI X99 GAMING 7 runs fine with E5 2650 V3 QEYN but now is running on with E5-2648L V4 QS QK9C

    Hello everyone,
    I'm considering to buy a Xeon E5 2696 v3 ES QEY8, i have a Asus X99 Deluxe and read about the problems on the AsRock Board. This is probably a microcode issue, isn't it? I have a bit of experience with Bios modding (it's pretty easy to swap microcodes), so i think the issue can be solved by swapping the MC from a Board the CPU is running on. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

    Also did anyone managed to overclock a V3 Xeon? The locked I7 Haswells have a microcode glitch where you can downgrade the Microcode and set the allcore turbo as high as you want. Did this on my Dell M3800 Notebook and OCed the I7 4702HQ to 3,8 GHz.
