Hi,

I wonder if anyone knows if the Xeon E5-2683 V3 OEM [2 Stepping] will work with the Asus X99 Deluxe (not U3.1) Motherboard?

Please note that both are LGA-2011-V3, so I do not mean compatibility in that regards.

The Chip is stated as OEM not ES/QS, and the Motherboard is the non U3.1 version of the Asus X99 Deluxe.

I bought the CPU and Mobo from Ebay from two different sellers; below is CPU-Z (in Chinese) of the Chip from the seller - as well as the buying link. I have also listed the link for the Asus Mobo.


I have checked on the Asus website for CPU compatibility but it is not listed; however I read from various sources that many CPUs not listed on motherboard websites for compatibility will actually work.

I asked the Seller which motherboard they believed would work but they took days to come back to me (saying the ASUS X99-A), by which time I had already bought the ASUS X99 Deluxe!

I understand that even if this CPU will work on this mobo then it will need the correct BIOS revision.

I just read a few posts on this website about ES/QS Xeon V3/V4 CPU's and the problems people were saying they had on Asus X99 motherboards - and therefore I just wanted to check that this was not a problem also for OEM CPUs such as the one above?

Thank you for any help you can offer on this compatibility.

Chris

I think it should work.

BTW with that seller, get expedited shipping. I ordered 4x CPUs on 2016-12-31 and they now have an ETA of 2016-01-17.

I have the mobo, and I have just ordered the processor.

Once I have done the build I will come back and update this thread and let everyone know how it went, and what BIOS revision I used, as well as try and take some photos.

So far I have been building dual E5-2670 Xeon workstations using the Natex Intel LGA2011 boards, so thought I would go for a V3 build this time.

Thanks for the advice Partrick.

In truth I still need to buy a few parts for this new build so I am happy with it taking a month or so to get here via ChinaPost. If I need any future chip's any sooner then I will definitely go with what you suggest and upgrade to expedited shipping.

I have the same processor. I tested it with ASUS X99-PRO 3.1, ASUS X99E-WS 3.1 and ASRock Taichi X99. It works with all of them. Cinebench R15 score is 1700.

@Nanotech Thats useful to know, thanks. We only asked as ExtremeSeller said it would only work with X99-A mobo!

We only used this single CPU mobo as we needed a ATX form factor for the GPU rack; all future builds would be the normal dual CPU such as the ASRock etc.
