tks for sharing! I was about to learn in the hard way too!!Depends on whether the QRx4 are LRDIMMs or RDIMMs.
X10QBi memory boards are 3 SPC (Slots per Channel), so the right part of the table is relevant.
If you use Quad Ranked RDIMMs, you can only use 4 per memory board, while with Quad Ranked LRDIMMs, you can fill the whole memory board (12 pcs.)
Another note: The table in the X10QBi manual is wrong, you should use the table in the 8048B-TRFT manual instead (I learnt that the hard way...)
This is all a bit confusing to me.Yeah just keep in mind that the speeds in the X10QBi table are wrong...
Apologies in advance that this isn't a solution, but I would like to comment that the correct behaviour of the machine with video card installed is as follows:OK. Thanks for the explanation! It is hard to find any good info about this board.
I have another question you may be able to have an answer to. It is regarding lockup on Boot code A9.
The following occurs: When I reset the Bios and remove all graphic cards I can enter the Bios setup and do not get A9 or boot issues.
The BIOS sometimes fails to save the new settings but after two or three times repeating the setup, it finally saves it.
I then shut down and re-install the graphic cards but I have to connect a separate monitor to the VGA of the
Supermicro AOM-X10QBi-A card to see the boot screen. It does not matter if I set the VGA in the Bios to Auto, Offboard, or Onboard. It seems I can't get it to post on anything but the VGA. Ideally I would like to disable the VGA port on the AOM module and boot offboard but I can't get this to work at all. My board came with Bios 3.2a and I wish I could try an older one (the one before the Meltdown microcode update) but I can't find that either. Any ideas? Could this be memory type related?
slightly related: if you have V3 (haswell) cpus, you could potentially do the 4-way EFI hack to get full-speed all-core turbo. haven't tried it though but im interested to see whether someone has done that before on the x10qbi.Hi everyone, maybe you know what PLL (clock generator chip) is used on X10Qbi? It could be fun to overclock FSB slightly by modifying PLL chip registers.
