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I've been reading through the thread and saw there was a modded bios for X99-A Godlike Gaming but that download link is no longer valid also the carbon is a little different motherboard than regular gaming.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!

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.

Hello,

I have Asus X99 Deluxe with water cooled (EKWB Monoblock, cpu + vrm) Xeon E5-2699 v3 and I did the unlock with guides from Craft Computing and Tech YES City YouTube videos.
My bios is latest version 4104 and I installed V3.EFI with USB stick, then in Windows 10 cpu_mcupDate (GenuineIntel.dll thing).

When I run Cinebench R15, HWiNFO64 says ratio x28-29 and when I run CPU-Z CPU stress, I get ratio x30 (7262 cpu multi thread result).
Am I hitting TDP limit? Should max turbo be higher?

I had CPU Core Voltage Offset -0.086 but now -0.090.

Today I made two new bios files (versions 3701 and 4101) with v3_payne_90_50.ffs file and of course 06F2 removal + C3 & C6 disabled.
I'll try later those new bioses without V3.efi usb stick injection and without Windows 10 cpu_mcupDate thing.

Edit (2 days later):
I tried 3701 bios without ffs injection, then uefi injected v3x4-0.10b-i306f2-rc9_90_70_50.efi.
Now I get all core 33x 101MHz CPU-Z stress and Cinebench R15. (CPU Core Voltage Offset -0.086)
2 disabled cores = 34x 101Mhz

@Scan409 Could you make S3TurboTool bios for Asus X99 Deluxe + E5-2699v3 (water cooled with monoblock), please?
I would like to try that also because Miyconst said: "S3TurboTool is overall better than the payne drivers"

It is very interesting to see this topic still active after many years. Even a developers (Dufus, payne, me.. ) who were here at the beginning of this operation no longer use those cpus.

Other hand this mod keeps the prices second-hand absurdly high. Thats not ok.

Please go buy Ryzen.

Hello,

Asus x99 A-II
E5-2678 v3
Kingston 256gb m.2 nvme
Corsair 16gb 2400mhz
GTX 1060 3gb

I followed two different tutorials but failed.
I didn't get any errors.

In the end, when I stress my cores I can't get over 2.499ghz.
Which means I failed somewhere.
The issue is I don't know where.

Tried @Suge Knight 's, @tech YES City

If anyone can recommend something different I would highly appreciate it.
I don't know what other information to post, please tell me and I will promptly.
Thank you.

UPDATE

Enabled Haswell-E SFR Adjust
Diasabled Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology

104.0 BCLK 3.42Ghz stable.
It works now.

Hi guys, I'm very late to the party but considering building a dual v3's system.

What are the differences between 2699v3 and 2696v3? which one would yield better unlocked results?

Is an Asus Z10PE-D16 WS a good choice for motherboard?

EDIT: What would be a good 140mm water cooler for them?

Thanks!

Hi does anyone have a modded bios for Z10PE-D16-WS which works? I have searched the thread before but all the links are dead and the people who posted them are non responsive.
I succesfully modded my z10pa-d8. so i can give that one a try aswell.

Hi punks ! I recently update to W11 and since that moment my CPU doens't goes over coefficient 28, instead of 36, even in with single core test/bench.

Anyone else facing the same issue ? by the way I have an X99M extrem4, is it possible to mod/hack the latest bios available for this mainboard ? I am currently using an old P3.20 version. The last one is the P3.50.

Could anybody hear hack it for me ? would be so kind :)

Hello!
Just turbo unlocked asus z10pc-d8/sas, using efi manual install, and i dumped/removed microcode/flashed my board. It's working well, but im only seeing 3.24GHz on 2x e5-2698v3. Got an email from Kostiantyn, linking me to the s3turbotool, but each time i launch the .exe the tool stops responding. Anybody feel like putting a package together for this combo? Much appreciated, thanks in advance.
