    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.

    OK thanks for the update Ranopile. Hopefully it should also work with the Asus X99 Deluxe.

    E5-2683 V3 OEM is compatible with the ASUS X99 series including the Deluxe I/II series.

    Does anyone know which BIOS revision is required on this Mobo to run this CPU?

    It doesn't require a bios update since this is a V3 processor and the microcode should have already been present since the first release bios. Also since this is a Broadwell-E refresh motherboard it may even be compatible out of the box with Broadwell-E depending on what bios it came with.

    That's good to hear but I didn't forsee any potential issues with the X99 Deluxe and using the E5-2683 V3 even if it's a ES2. The ASUS and GIGABYTE X99 motherboards are more picky about V4 steppings requiring QS or higher to POST even with the latest bios. I've seen the newer Gigabyte X99 refresh motherboards (Ultra Gaming, Phoenix SLI, Designare-EX) work with early V4 steppings but that could be an exception

    @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.

    I'm not sure why the seller said it only works with the X99-A motherboard when V3 ES's are largely compatible unlike V4 ES's on X99 motherboards. Perhaps he has only tested with that motherboard?

    Yeah perhaps, that would make sense.. also I think that that is one of the cheapest mobo's available (from that brand) which is maybe why they mentioned it.

    Your right that it is the cheapest ASUS X99 motherboard primarily because it is an entry-level motherboard.
