I hope someone can advise if they are running on windows if they get random BSOD??

I did a research today and it seems there is a major difference between MOBO Rev 1.0 that came with this server and Rev 1.1



You see the one above is Rev 1.1 you can see they added few chipset there and also change the location of the 2 Sata

To compare with Rev 1.0 below




Not sure if this can be the cause why these random BSOD happen and thats why they had a Rev 1.1 out to solve it? Would appreciate if anyone can share there experience using this server and if they have any random BSOD as well? Thanks

@Prof_G no not using any of the 2, it seems Gigabyte made more changes other than only on these, the comparison here is only what i was able to catch from pictures online for Revision 1.1, the picture on Gigabyte site is for Rev 1.0 also not 1.1 as well

Has anyone modified their BIOS to enable v3 all core turbo and can share it?
I modified mine, but for some reason my 2 e5-4669's won't go beyond to 2.4. Since there is no where in BIOS I can see to set the multiplier, not sure what to do next. All cores go to 2.9 okay on another x99 desktop motherboard, but I have no experience with server motherboards.

Update: Success! the injected FFS drivers in the BIOS don't seem to work, but if you manually load from the EFI shell it works.

good deal regardless, if someone had a basement this would be nice for an access or backup server.

Disable C States and make sure to enable C1E, P & T States and Turbo mode, then under Processor make sure all cores is set to 0, this should unlock them all
