Hi, ASUS Z10PE-D16WS here, with dual E52699v3.

If anyone can provide the permanent bios unlock ( no efi injection and no windows 10 override via OS update ), I am willing to pay 500$. Payment will be received upon succesful testing of the new bios.

Hi everyone,

I just got a X99-A Godlike Gaming Carbon and a Xeon E5-2697v3. I've been reading through the thread and saw there was a modded bios for X99-A Godlike Gaming but that download link is no longer valid also the carbon is a little different motherboard than regular gaming. I'm not sure it would work with that BIOS.

I was told that the E5-2697v3 overclocks better than E5-2698 due to higher TDP. I might be looking into getting the E5-2698v3 or even the E5-2699v3 to test them as well.
Planning to run them in Linux but have no idea how to mod the BIOS. The latest BIOS available on MSI for Godlike and Godlike Carbon below but don't believe they're working cross motherboards. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I would not flash a BIOS intended for a different motherboard. That said, as mentioned, you could use a modded BIOS for your motherboard. I am not sure how to do this, but I would ask around. GL!

I AM NOT RESPONSABLE IN ANYWAY IF THIS DAMAGES YOUR MOTHERBOARD

Here is the mod.
Use M-FLASH in BIOS

Undervolt and All Core Turbo Unlock via S3TurboTool (-50/-50/-50) + 306F2 mCode removed + Disabled C6 State(in IntelRCSetup)

X99A GODLIKE GAMING CARBON : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GIkwuZ-HVIZwgGiMpgd5gGKCaWkjdqQG/

If System hang in Boot screen, You must be disabled C6 State in BIOS

Is it possible that there's a hidden ECC Memory support in this BIOS? I can't get it to post with ECC, but non-ECC works fine. I see alot of other X99A boards that support ECC.
