Take this with a gain of salt but on the supermicro site both boards point to the same bios download file. I can't seem to see much different besides a few more sata/sas ports on the DR3 board. So I'll say yes it will work...would the same bios also work for the X9DR3-LN4+?
this isn't strictly related to what you're doing, but i'm trying to get a modded bios for my X8DAH+-F m/b, I've looked all over the place a can't find one ANYWHERE . All i'm looking to do (if possible) is unlock the BCLK so I can bump up the xeons speed a little. if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated .Kudos to the all the peeps at Fernando's Win-RAID Forum (Storage Drivers - BIOS Modding)
Ha....Supermicro tech support said there was no way to do this
Was this ever sorted? Having same issue...only downtime: in Benchmark Seq. Read is not perfectly fast - it's nearly the same as write (around 2,000 MB/sec, which matches advertised expectations).
Are there any ideas on this?

May I know how you managed to boot win10 x64 on the x9dri-ln4f+ at all??Just modded Bios v3.2 of X9DRi-LN4F+
=> now 1TB 960Pro not only works but also boots perfectly W10 within kryoM.2 PCIe 3.0 x4
maybe this will help :May I know how you managed to boot win10 x64 on the x9dri-ln4f+ at all??
I'm struggling with errors and blue screens just to boot it on a regular SATA SSD...
SuperMicro does say that anything above Windows 7 cannot work.
I ordered 1x PCI Express Gen 3 Carrier Board for 4 M.2 SSD modules - Amfeltec
Need to find a few $$ for some 960 EVOs
How did you enable the hidden settings? Did you use AMIBCP to modify function access to 'USER'? Anything else?Big thanks to mafrieger for the help. I managed to fresh install and configure an X9DRI-LN4F+. Couple of things not mentioned earlier:
1 - You cant UEFI boot from CD/DVD you must use a USB Bootdisk
2 - Didn't need any extra drivers at all, you can resolve the driver requirement for sata after the install (On Supermicro site as SCU driver)
I also tried to use an Asus Hyper M2 X16 quad card, only the first M2 slot works. I tried to enable the slot bifurcation with the hidden bios settings which did turn the PCIE speed setting for the slot from 1 setting to 4 but does not seem to configure the Root Ports correctly. PCIE Bifurcation can likely be added but only by a skilled bios engineer. Of course I am assuming that the Hyper M2 X16 card does not have any special requirements as I'm not sure how the VROC / Standard mode setting in Asus bios is applied.
Interested in this;
I am looking to mod my X9SRL-F BIOS to support NVMe and use this very adaptor (want to use a 960 pro for ESXi/FreeNAS VM datastore, and a PM953 for a FreeNAS SLOG).
Keen to understand why the other three ports aren't available. Did you ever find out anything further on this?
SuperMicro have confirmed by board supports bifurcation, so guess it must be to do with the ASUS chips onboard and VROC?
EDIT: have put in a query to Asus to see what they say. Will report back.
I have a X9DR7-LN4F with Bios 3.3, and although bifurcation settings are visible, when I try to change x16 for instance, x16 is the only option I can select. Do any of yours actually allow you to select a different option??? I can't think what Asus mean by that.
I've put an Asus Hyper M2 X16 quad card in the single x16 slot of an Asrock Z370 board using bifurcation of x16 to x8x4x4 set in the BIOS .
This makes a single x16 slot into 3 separately functioning sets of lanes at x8, x4 and x4, so the quad card works perfectly with 3 SSDs onboard - and would see 4 SSDs if the ASrock BIOS had a bifurcation option of x16 to x4x4x4x4 - which supported Asus boards do. Gigabyte also has Z370 boards that do this.
So the Asus quad card definitely works with bifurcation - I can't really see how it could work otherwise ...
Modding a BIOS to introduce bifurcation sounds tricky.
