Hey Guys.

Does anybody had experience about a "ready to flash" ASRock X99E-ITX and an stable Turbo Boost BIOS (newest Version) for Intel Xeon E5-2618L v3 with 2x 32 GB reg. ECC RDIMMs?

Thanks a lot.

Hey Guys.
today i have done my Huananzhi X99-TF motherboard V3 Turbo and i decide to share all my content in this forum.
The configuration that i use is:
Huananzhi x99-TF V5.11
Intel Xeon 2680v3 12c/24t 3.3ghz all core turbo

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
if you have a Huananzhi x99-TF and you want to do all core turbo mod on Xeon V3
This Bios mod dont need microcode inside, and you can run Xeon V3 mod on windows microcode:
Huananzhi x99-TF V5.11 motherboard READY TO FLASH

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

what is inside?
this is the same MOD that i find on win raid GUIDE with update to work with New Chinese Motherboard

Intel FPT
thank you
i will make a full totorial using this
Intel ME System Tools v9.1 r7 - (2018-09-01)
For 8/9/X99/C220/C610-series systems which run ME v9.0 - v9.1
nobody talks about this anywhere

Finally success!
Got it working yesterday.
You have to only remove the microcode from bios with UBU, flash it with fpt and add the V3.EFI to the EFI partition from UEFI Shell as described earlier in this thread.
Then with bios settings at default it works well.

Cinebench R15


Next step would be to be able to adjust BCLK.
Is it possible on this motherboard?

I tried to poke the PLL, but it's unreachable from R-W Everything and setFSB
i'm on this journey too,
i will first try to modify the bios to receive 107mhz+++ baseclock as default
and after that i will try to unlink pci-e clock generator from BUS

Well, that is something interesting indeed!
How can you modify default BCLK in bios?

I have the exact same board with BIOS v5.11 when I purchased it a week ago

Once the window has been updated, overclock and turbo features are all gone

PS: I have Huananzhi X99 TF, 1650v3 @ 4.5Ghz when i freshly installed win 10 passed stress test

I actually used fptw64 to flash the BIOS you've posted. The turbo is now back on. I tested with my 1650v3 (6 core 3.8Ghz turbo is back) and 2697v3 (3.1Ghz all 14 cores), but then I lost the overclock (unlock multiplier setting from my 10/28/2018 factory setting BIOS)

I am stupid enough forget to backup the factory 10/28/2019

when windows update you need to delete the meltdown and spectre microcode that microssoft put into c:/windows/system32/drivers
Just delete the mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll

you have two processors?
why all core turbo on a unlocked xeon?
if you want to overclock your Unlocked xeon let's try Trottlestop
.........
but if you want that processor be reconized overclockable by microcode on bios you need microcode!
Put the original bios for use 1650v3!!!!!!!!

backup bios is inside this file

Hmm.. OK, I'm going to try that.
But what do you mean "when iddle the CPU spread to 107mhz" ?
You mean the BCLK only goes up to 107 when the load is low on the CPU?
Is that because of TDP limit, or something else.
Can you set 107MHz BCLK under all core 100% load?

i just take a look at the Intel ME System Tools v9.1 r7 and modify my spread clock to 4%, dont do nothing more,
i can't set BCLK under all core 100% load today, i will try it soon,
now i'm doing the MacOs Mojave Turbo Core on my system
i sold my X99-TF today and i'm waiting to my new " Huananzhi X99-F8 " motherboard arrive!

Hey, guys. I need unlock turbobust under 2 processor Intel Xeon E5-2696 V3 for server HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 G9 8 SF. Please tell me how to do it? Can this be done on Ubuntu ? Maybe there is a step-by-step instruction ?

E5 2696v3 is top end CPU for haswell-EP generation. Before doing this mod, you need to check your motherboard VRM. 2x 2696v3 has TDP of 145x2= 290w. At stock your VRM can handle this. But with OC and turbo unlock power consumption will be around 600watts total for both CPUs, which is too much for server motherboards, you may end up damaging it. As far as i know only Asus Z10PE D8-WS / D16-WS can handle this much power without damaging anything.
I have tried this mod on a Z840 last year with dual 2690v3, it didn't even worked properly. During cinebench R15 it used to freeze and reboot randomly. Caused bootloops.

VRM will fire up!
ProLiant DL360 Gen9 G9 dont support E5-2696 V3 at stock speed
you will need VRM cooled motherboard

and most importantly, you can't modify hp proliant bios, because it's encrypted afaik.

Now I'm also done with the full turbo. In my case (ASRock X99M Killer 3.1) I have to put shell.EFI renamed as Shellx64.efi directly in the USB root folder (it cannot be found in the EFI folder).
Have something done wrong by the way through modding, but finally get it.

Thanks. If we consider the motherboard of Asus Z PE 10 D8-WS / D16WS, there are instructions on how to unlock turboboost on all cores on two 2697 v3? And can it all be done on Ubuntu 18.04?

Hi all,

I am running a Xeon 2696 v3 @ 101,9BLCK @ 33x all core turbo on an Asus x99-II since the very beginning of this thread! (rock stable never had a BSOD while in daily use!!)

As the multi goes up when deactivating cores due to higher watt limit per core
(16c = 34x
14c = 35x
12c = 36x
10c = 37x
8c = 38x)
The multi does not change at all when deactivating HT! As power consumption is lower when HT is deactivated, i assumed that all core turbo (18c/18t) should get higher.

Does anybody know why? And how i possibly could change that?
