Need usb flash bios tool for huananzhi x99 tf. my device start and any seconds crash. need help for instal bios for usb flash bios. need process for instal and tool usb flash. hug

Miyconst on 01 June 2020 08:56 says

Francisco Gomes, I can recommend you this tool: CH341A. Is your PC stable to get into the BIOS?

Vincent on 09 June 2020 19:24 says

I thought it would be fine to get the X99 V102, as I wasn’t planning to overclock.

However, I think I bricked it... I modified a setting in the BIOS, something to do with UEFI and GPU, and the option rom thing, and now it wouldn’t boot. (No display, fan and gpu light does light up, click of power button immediately shuts down). I had previously had a Z87 system with full UEFI (switched off option rom and stuff), but it failed after 4-5 years. This was meant to replace. GPU is known working. I have tried moving the jumper, as an effort to reset the bios.

Based on your experience with your “dead” X99 V102, was it considerably doable to recover? Do you have any other suggestions? Also, was also wondering if you spotted this problem when testing?

Thanks in advance.

Miyconst on 09 June 2020 19:54 says

Vincent, X99Z V102 motherboard seems to have some strong capacitors on board, which keep the BIOS settings even if you shorten the clear CMOS jumper. Thus, my recommendation would be:

  • Remove the batter from the motherboard.
  • Shorten the clear CMOS jumper.
  • Let the motherboard be like this for a few days.
  • Try it again.
Vincent on 09 June 2020 20:01 says

Thanks for the quick reply! That gives a glimmer of hope. Will do it tomorrow! (It’s night time here)

Vincent on 10 June 2020 19:26 says

Hey Miyconst, thanks for your advice! I didn’t leave it for days but tried like 10 minutes, and now it’s bootable again!

Miyconst on 11 June 2020 02:55 says

Vincent, thanks for the update, it's good to know since my motherboard didn't clear its CMOS even after 30 minutes without the battery.

Andres Cera on 16 June 2020 00:00 says

Francisco Gomes, you need to use a ch341a programmer to do it

Wayan on 16 June 2020 05:47 says

Hello bro do you have Kllisre X79 Motherboard BIOS file? My board doesn't working and not want to start. Thanks

Miyconst on 16 June 2020 08:47 says

Wayan, unfortunately, I don't have BIOS for this motherboard, but you can take a look here - Kllisre X79 M2 \ M3.

junior on 20 June 2020 01:27 says

hello guys is there a fix for dual x99 motherboard to resume power after power loss

Miyconst on 20 June 2020 08:24 says

junior, unfortunately no.

Max on 21 June 2020 09:27 says

junior, I browsed through bios of Kllisre / JingSha X99 D8 a lot, trying to find an option to resume power state on power loss. I feel that I found it but it's not called something like "power management". Look for something where you can choose states D0-D5. D0 is for power off, I selected something like D3 and it powers on on power loss - I've already tested it. Unfortunately, I can't tell exactly now because it's in remote location but I will get back to it after I get the next motherboard :)

EmmaPF on 24 June 2020 16:24 says

Hello... It happens that some time ago I bought a Chinese mother (huananzhi x99-f8) and a xeon e5 2678 v3 processor to experiment, I made a server in minecraft and played at the same time, etc ... but I came up with the idea of doing OC, use this tutorial https://youtu.be/n70kVysFM3E

I saw this tutorial and I did it, But boy, when I get to the part where the bios are modified by entering the Uefi I realize that it is not the same as in the video, it gives me an error and well, now I cannot start Windows and I cannot format :) It freezes, I don't know if I already have a good piece of paper or can I do something, advice?

Psdt: load the file into FS0, but when you go from FS0 to FS1, I noticed there was no FS1 and hey ... now the problem :)

Miyconst on 24 June 2020 16:33 says

EmmaPF, so, you have stuck in the situation when the 06F2 CPU microcode from the BIOS has been removed, but the EFI drivers are not installed.

Since you don't have the FS1 partition, I can assume that your Windows is installed in the legacy non-UEFI mode, which is not supported to add extra EFI drivers.

Now you have the following options:

  1. Go to the BIOS and put CPU Power Management to Disabled. I don't remember the exact settings name, but there shall be three options: Disabled, Custom, and Energy Efficient. Put it to Disabled, save changes and reboot back to Windows.
  2. Restore your default BIOS and be happy with a working system.
  3. Use my Turbo Boost Unlock method with injecting FFS driver straight into the BIOS without extra EFI drivers.
EmmaPF on 24 June 2020 17:31 says

ooohhh maaan, amazing..... but how to reset the default Bios? I already removed the battery and made the bridge... I download the Bios you have?

of course I will use your method <3

Miyconst on 24 June 2020 18:01 says

EmmaPF, you can't restore the original BIOS by clearing CMOS, you have to use FPT tool to flash original BIOS. You can also flash BIOS with injected FFS driver straight away.

EmmaPF on 25 June 2020 05:03 says

I don't know how this process is done :(

Miyconst on 25 June 2020 10:21 says

EmmaPF, you can watch two of my Turbo Boost Unlock tutorials, and you will learn everything you need to know - Xeon E5-2600 V3 Turbo Boost Unlock.

Mark on 27 June 2020 11:44 says

Miyconst, Hi Miyconst, can you please tell me which pins you jump on the Machinist Board?

Miyconst on 27 June 2020 11:45 says

Mark, I don't quite understand your question, sorry.

Mark on 27 June 2020 12:15 says

Miyconst, Sorry, I meant can you please tell me which pins you jump on the Machinist X99Z v102 board? I am used to seeing 3 pins near the CMOS battery and you change the jumper to the other 2 pins. But I can't see anything like that on this board. Thanks Mark

Miyconst on 27 June 2020 12:48 says

Mark, as far as I know it's located between USB 2.0 and 3-pin fan header. Unfortunately, the clear CMOS jumper is not functioning well with the stock motherboard's BIOS.

Thom on 03 July 2020 21:37 says

Hello Miyconst. Not the correct place to post this I'm sure but not sure where else to! I've just acquired an Atermiter X99 board (same as Killsre X99-D4) with a 2620v3. I'm trying to install windows from the NVME but it just cannot see it! I've disabled CSM etc but the NVME will not show in the drive selection on W10 setup. I've even tried reseating the drive but no change. You've tested these boards with NVME SSD, any advice you could give me would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Miyconst on 03 July 2020 21:42 says

Hi Thom. First of all, please provide your SSD model name, and tell me if the SSD is recognized in the BIOS.

Thom on 03 July 2020 21:53 says

The SSD is a Patriot P300. It does not show in the BIOS. The BIOS is AMI Aptio 5.11, but I have noticed its an Evaluation copy (shows on post). There is an NVME option in BIOS but the sub menu is empty.

Miyconst on 03 July 2020 22:00 says

Thom, there might be two reasons for this issue:

  1. The SSD is not compatible with this motherboard.
  2. The motherboard is defective.

The evaluation version of the BIOS shall not affect it's functionality.

Thom on 03 July 2020 22:08 says

Thanks for the information on the BIOS. I fear you maybe right. I think I will pull my SATA SSD from my other machine and possibly flash the BIOS to the F8 version. I will also test the SSD on my Ryzen system with MSI mobo. Thanks for the advice.

Miyconst on 03 July 2020 22:13 says

Thom, some other of my subscribers reported that Kingston SSDs didn't work properly on this motherboard as well. Thus, I suspect, that your SSD is totally fine, but the motherboard is not compatible with it.

Thom on 03 July 2020 22:27 says

Maybe I'll just swap the drives around from the two machines then. Sounds like the best value option! I do have a King Spec 480gb NVME on order from Ali, I hope that one works! Thanks again for your help.

Ivica on 03 July 2020 23:07 says

Miyconst, HI! I have a Huananzhi X99 TF mobo and its wont boot.Led shows A6 error, and 1 long and 5 short beeps. Try with DDR3 and DDR4 in all slots combination but screen still black...I acquired same mobo but act the same. Only cannot try with different CPU(e5+2678v3).Solo board (no ram, cpu, vga) show FF, with CPU only 53, Any idea? I hope that I am only one whos got dead cpu.... Thanks in advance and best regards.

Miyconst on 03 July 2020 23:10 says

Ivica, if I understood you correctly, you have tested your Xeon E5-2678 V3 in multiple motherboards, and the CPU would not boot. In this case I can recommend you to clean the CPU contacts with a clean spirit. Do not use hand sanitizing gel, use clean spirit. A6 post code does not really tell much, but you can see the list of the post codes here - AMI BIOS Post Codes.

Ivica on 05 July 2020 13:56 says

Hi! Yes you correct, i try CPU in two identical x99 Tf board, and act the same. I separately test Ram, VGA card in other mobo and worked well. Also try with DDR 4 RAM, but no luck.Also I have different ram boards, used in hp Z600, and in Z820, so i know thats wirking, ECC ,non ECC, diferent speed, but no luck.I try to clean CPU Contacts and let you know the result. I can also add some photos of behavior if you need. Thanks in advance and best regards.

JSJ on 06 July 2020 22:09 says

I put a modified russian bios in my Kllisre D4, but I had some issues with HDD, so I reinstall the original bios. Now I'm triying with other bios, but my current bios (supposedly the original) is protected against write. How can it be, if the first time that I flashed I just replace the stock bios with re russian one without write protection?. How can I unlock the protection?

Miyconst on 06 July 2020 22:12 says

JSJ, you have to disable the BIOS write lock in the BIOS settings. Carefully watch my review for the motherboard, and you will find the answer of how to do that.

JSJ on 06 July 2020 22:40 says

Miyconst, Ok My friend, I found it but in the JingSha X99 D4 video, thanks for your job.

LOT on 09 July 2020 17:47 says

My friend, my motherboard X99D4 Kllisre is dead after a bios update made via DOS by afudos, I was just trying to put the stock bios back after issues with a modified bios. Now the system does not show video. There is a way to recover it?, or the motherboard is totally dead?, I'm waiting for another k99 MB, in the meanwhile I'm trying to probe different things in my current MB. kind Regards.

LOT on 09 July 2020 22:44 says

I bought Ch341A tool as you said In a earlier comment, Hope it works, regards.

Miyconst on 10 July 2020 09:25 says

LOT, you have screwed the motherboard BIOS and now you need the CH341a USB flash programmer to restore the BIOS. I plan to make a video of how to do that.

LOT on 10 July 2020 16:43 says

Miyconst, That will be very useful for many of us, thanks, kind regards.

Laurent on 16 July 2020 01:26 says

Hello, do you have any updated bios for Kllisre X99 dual DU99D4? Many thanks

Miyconst on 16 July 2020 09:49 says

Laurent, sorry, I don't have it. This motherboard has not yet arrived to me.

Gabor on 16 July 2020 10:06 says

Vincent, "something to do with UEFI and GPU, and the option rom thing"

I am awaiting a KLLISRE X99Z V102 board too. I was shocked as you wrote, that you bricked the motherboard, by changing settings in the BIOS :-O

Do you remember what have you done exactly?

I didn't plan to overclock my CPU, so I don't plan to tamper with the BIOS (very probably), but I would like to feel safe, that if I enter the BIOS, accidentally I am not able to brick the mobo.

Thanks! Gabor

chrisk2305 on 27 July 2020 14:54 says

Hi Miyconst,

Do you know where I can find the latest BIOS for the Kllisre X99 Desktop motherboard (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000880394156.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.7f094c4dgS3W6B)

Thank you!

Miyconst on 27 July 2020 15:54 says

chrisk2305, what do you count as the latest BIOS? The latest official BIOS or different mods?

chrisk2305 on 27 July 2020 16:05 says

Actually the latest official BIOS. I would still need to mod it for Turbo unlock. But if you already have the latest BIOS with unlock mod I would not mind also :-) Thanks!

Miyconst on 27 July 2020 21:17 says

chrisk2305, there are some new modifications for this motherboard, but I do not feel comfortable to suggest it before I test it myself. I would pick the BIOS from the Mik Gambit video, it works well.

chrisk2305 on 28 July 2020 09:27 says

Thank you. I wouldn't mind trying out the version you have, as this is an experiment only. Thanks again. Chris

Pavithran on 28 July 2020 21:59 says

Does Huananzhi boards work well with Intel Vtx ?

Miyconst on 28 July 2020 22:35 says

Pavithran, they do, as far as I know.

Diego on 30 July 2020 20:11 says

Hi, I need some help please I have jingsha x99 dual with e2678 v3 64Gb of ram. First, there is one slot of memory ram that doesn't work, the motherboard shows b7 in its display and the computer doesn't start. I've tried each of memory of 8 in that slot and always the same, the motherboard shows b7 and doesn't start. Second, in other slots there is one memory ram that doesn't work, whatever I put that memory ram the display always shows b7 and he computer doesn't start. So I think I have one slot that doesn't work and one memory ram that doesn't work neither. I've thought probably it's a factory problem but I'm not sure. What do you think? Many thanks

Miyconst on 30 July 2020 20:23 says

Diego, I think, you shall contact the seller and ask for the help. According to your description, you seem to either have a defective motherboard or a defective CPU. The non working memory module is most likely defective as well.

yorladys de on 01 August 2020 07:47 says

Hello friend, sorry I do not speak English so I am using the Google translator, I have a problem with my board or I think so, I explain a few days ago perform the steps to unlock the turbo to my e5 2620 v3, after that I have started to experiencing system crashes, at first I thought it was the Ram, so I changed them, but the problem continued, then I thought it was my ssd, but I tried to install Windows in an hhd, and the same thing happened in the middle of the installation it hung and I did not answer anymore, then searching the Internet, I could read several comments of similar cases and they said that it was the bios, so I decided to ask you because I see that you have a lot of content about these Chinese plates, my plate is a huananzhi x99-f8

Miyconst on 01 August 2020 17:50 says

yorladys de, did you perform system stress test and memory validation before applying the turbo boost unlock? To be able to solve the issue, you need to know the culprit. It could be hardware or software related. To rule out hardware reasons, you shall always stress test your system before any BIOS modifications.

yorladys de on 01 August 2020 18:49 says

Miyconst, I have done the ram stability test through the Linux distro test, but it only reached 40% and it was freezing, so I changed the memories and it is still the same, I tried to install a clean copy of Windows in my ssd m. 2 and could not because it hung in the installation, so to discard the ssd look for an hdd of a friend and the same thing happened, during the installation it hung and did not let Windows install, searching the Internet I came across its forum and I could read the case of Francisco Gómez, who was passing something similar to my case and you recommended the eeprom CH341A

Miyconst on 01 August 2020 20:18 says

yorladys de, did you perform these tests before or after modifying your BIOS?

yorladys de on 02 August 2020 01:08 says

Miyconst, The tests were done after modifying the bios, I was also trying to raise the Ram to 2400mz, but my xeon e5 2620 v3 only recognizes them until 1866, in that step I did the stability tex and everything was fine, the problem started when I tried touching the system quick start options from the bios, removing the image from American trends, after that the crashes started, so I reset the bios to factory state and it was still freezing, the same thing happened when I tried to reset with the jcmos pin

Miyconst on 02 August 2020 13:24 says

yorladys de, go back to the original BIOS and don't mess up with the Quick Start and other things if you want to have Turbo Boost unlock. Xeon E5-2620 V3 supports DDR4-1866 maximum, so far there is no known way to overcome this limitation. Also, I don't think I will be able to assist if you apply some custom BIOS modifications which cause system instability.

yorladys de on 02 August 2020 15:01 says

Miyconst, Is it possible to return to the bios originate from a usb drive? Without having to use the eeprom programmer

Miyconst on 02 August 2020 21:00 says

yorladys de, yes, it's possible, but if you computer hangs during the flashing process, the motherboard will get bricked. To do that you have to create a bootable MS-DOS USB flash drive, copy FPT tool, all its files, and the original BIOS file onto the USB flash drive, boot from the flash drive and use the FPT tool to flash the original BIOS.

JD on 04 August 2020 12:53 says

Hello Miyconst, I just built my pc with xeon e5 2620 v3, huananzhi x99-tf and 8gb ddr4 ram from samsung. Then today I bought a 16gb ram kit for an upgrade since I just borrowed the 8gb ram to to setup the turbo unlock. Now the motherboard is stuck with error code 53 which I googled and it seems the ram is the problem, so here are the troubleshootings I’ve done:

-Reseating ram -Testing 1 ram on every slot -Clearing cmos every reseat and test

And it still doesnt work. So, I tried the new ram on a different computer and it works, then I also tried using the previous 8gb ram I borrowed and it is working. Then lastly I tried both the old and new ram together and the new ram doesnt read by the motherboard.

What seems the problem? and is there a solution? I read some posts that says to try a different bios My bios ver. is 2.18.1263

Miyconst on 04 August 2020 13:40 says

JD, as far as I know, there is no solution for this problem. The 8 GB memory modules you have are simply not compatible with X99-TF motherboard, unfortunately. It is a known problem, that all (at least most) of the Chinese X99 motherboards are not working with 2 and 4 banks modules. In the past, only 4 GB modules had such configurations, but lately there are 8 GB modules as well.

The DDR4 ECC REG memory has way less compatibility problems on these boards, but if you want to buy desktop memory from AliExpress, then the best option would be 16 GB memory modules.

JD on 04 August 2020 15:00 says

Miyconst, Oh that is sad to hear. I am hoping there is a work around the ram I bought is from China, it is HRUIYL 2x8gb DDR4. If ever I tried to swap the 2x8 gb to a single 16gb ram of the same brand, is there a possibility that it will work? or not because its the same brand?

Miyconst on 04 August 2020 15:28 says

JD, it does not matter which brand it is, what matter is the physical memory layout. You can read about memory banks here.

JD on 04 August 2020 16:09 says

Miyconst, Ok I see, I just checked the new ram I have and it only has 4 banks so that is probably the case, thank you so much for the fast response!

Rondinelle on 08 August 2020 21:03 says

Hello, could you help me, recently I bought the Kllisre X99 D4 card, when trying to install the OS, I come across the error presented, follow youtube link. I removed the memories and tested a slot at home and the error still persists. What do you think it can be?


I thank you for your help.

Luigui on 10 August 2020 18:48 says

Hi! I had a x79 with E5-2650 and 64GB RAM. it turns out that I changed the processor for an E5-2670. But it does not start me with the 64GB of RAM. It only works with 2 slots (2 and 4 or 1 and 3). If I put the RAM or the 4 slots in another device, it throws me "ERROR 67". Can you help me please.

Miyconst on 10 August 2020 18:58 says

Luigui, try to remove the CPU and carefully clean its contacts with clean spirit do not use anti-bacterial gel. If that doesn't help, you might have got a CPU with damaged memory channels.

Miyconst on 10 August 2020 19:01 says

Rondinelle, did you test your memory with Memtest86? Did you apply any turbo boost unlock procedures? Do you have CPU C3/C6 states disabled or enabled in the BIOS?

Rondinelle on 10 August 2020 20:43 says

Miyconst, Hello, first thanks for answering my question, I have no way to test the memories, I bought this kit on aliexpress to show a PC GAMER for my son, the tests I did was to remove the memories from the slots and test them one by one at home slot and yet the problem persists. I also tried to change the video card, but without success. I did not make any configuration in the motherboard BIOS, except, choose the boot through the pendrive to install the OS, when I get home I will check these options that you mention. CPU C3 / C6. And I return here to tell if it worked.

EmmaPF on 12 August 2020 02:54 says

Miyconst, i love you... thanks for the help

Rondinelle on 14 August 2020 00:38 says

EmmaPF, Hello my friend, returning here to inform you that I was unable to solve the problem, I will narrate what was done. The card recognizes Windows 7, but Windows 10 does not, when I install Windows 10, and on the Windows logo screen loading ... it restarts and the monitor flashes. I did the following tests, I took the HD of my notebook that is installed on windows 7, put it on the board and started normal, so I decided to put the HD SDD on my notebook and install windows 10 on it, and when I put it on the board, and when start it turns off on the windows 10 logo screen and has the same problem with the monitor flashing, so I decided to try to enter the safe mode, started, however, stayed with it in black and white. I think it is some configuration in the BIOS that is enabled that is not compatible with windows 10. But, I can't find what it is. Could you help me solve the problem? Please!

Miyconst on 14 August 2020 07:36 says

Rondinelle, text me on Instagram and we can try to solve it.

Rondinelle on 14 August 2020 18:36 says

Miyconst, Thank you, I sent you a message.

Fo0se on 15 August 2020 02:23 says

Hello Miyconst, I have some doubts about really needing to change the Kllisre x99 D8 bios to the Huananzhi X99-F8 bios to unlock the turbo boost? this procedure is not for all x99 motherboards? the other question and about DDR4 memories, did you use Kllisre brand memories? Are they good for the x99 platform? especially with the e5 2678 v3, or do you think it is better to use ddr3 1600mhz eec reg memories? Thanks!

Miyconst on 15 August 2020 10:16 says


  • As far as I know, every JingSha/Kllisre X99 D8 motherboard works well with Huananzhi X99-F8 BIOS. All you have to do is disable the BIOS write protection in the BIOS and use FPT to slash the X99-F8 BIOS on the motherboard.
  • Kllisre DDR4 memory is a gamble. 8 GB modules may have a different layout, the ones with 8 banks work well, the ones with 4 banks are not supported by the Chinese X99 motherboards. Thus, if you plan to buy these memory sticks, I would suggest to buy it as a bundle from AliExpres, then the seller will check that the RAM is compatible with the motherboard, otherwise, I would suggest buying DDR3 ECC REG.

Miyconst, First thanks for answering me! I'm about to buy an E5 2678 v3 kit! I’m consuming all the content on your youtube channel to get my questions answered. has 2 kits with attractive price on aliexpress, E5 2678 v3 + Kllisre x99 d8 + 4x8 32gb Kllisre DDR4 2400mhz and the other kit is E5 2678 v3 + huananzhi x99-tf + 4x8 32GB DDR3 ECC reg 1600mhz. The only procedure I intend to perform is the turbo boost unlock and maybe tighten the time of the memories, in your opinion what is the best kit? Thank you very much for your attention! (I'm Brazilian and I use Google translator so I'm sorry for any grammatical errors)

Miyconst on 15 August 2020 23:48 says

Fo0se, out of these two options I would pick Kllisre X99 D8, but you would have to flash Huananzhi X99-F8 BIOS to get access to the RAM timings.

Fo0se on 16 August 2020 00:01 says

Miyconst, Thanks for the tip, I will buy the Kllisre X99 D8 kit, as soon as I arrive I give feedback.

chrisk2305 on 17 August 2020 18:00 says

Hi, I have a X99Z V102 and I cannot change the memory frequency. I have 2400Mhz DDR4 RAM and it always defaults to 2133 no matter what I set in the BIOS. Can somebody help out here? Thanks!

chrisk2305 on 17 August 2020 18:33 says

EDIT: Ok, My CPU ist the culprit. I have a Xeon E5-2678 v3 that only supports DDR4 2133. But one other thing: I have modified the bios and unlocked it. It should boost to 3,3 Ghz but stays at 2,9Ghz under heavy load. Cooling is more than sufficient. Maybe you have a clue? Thanks

Doc brown on 18 August 2020 06:29 says

I've been looking through all of the comments on your blog after I received my motherboard/cpu today. I decided on the kllisre D8 with a E5-2678 v3. I downloaded all of the files needed to unlock turbo but to my surprise it was already unlocked! My motherboard came with a turbo unlocked bios, with driver injected, and undervolted from kllisre's official store.

Everything works flawlessly luckily. I'm supprised.

Christian Klutich on 21 August 2020 09:07 says

I also set some too tight timings for my ram on the x99z v102 and now the system won't post. Clear CMOS does not work as stated a few posts above. Is there really no way to do a faster cmos reset than waiting a few days without battery and power?

Miyconst on 21 August 2020 13:59 says

Christian Klutich, as far as I know, there is no other way. You can try to wait a few hours, that could be enough, for some users even a few minutes is enough, but not for me.

chrisk2305 on 21 August 2020 14:45 says

Ok, thanks. I left it overnight an that was not enough. Hopefully 24h will be enough.

Miyconst on 21 August 2020 14:49 says

chrisk2305, you also need to shorten the clear CMOS jumper.

chrisk2305 on 21 August 2020 14:57 says

Yes, this is the JBAT1 Jumper, right?

Miyconst on 22 August 2020 10:44 says

chrisk2305, yes, as far as I remember.

Adam on 26 August 2020 15:46 says

Does anyone know how to lower the chasis fan speed in x99-d8?

Hamza on 26 August 2020 18:25 says

hi i have x99 d4 motherboard. I used the x99 d4 motherboard for 2 months without any problems, but today I played with the bios settings.

In the bios menu, I just clicked the uefi option, save and exit, the computer turned off and then it was not turned on, so there was no image on the screen, please help.

Trying: I took out the Bios battery and installed it. I removed the rams and installed them. I tried a different display card. I changed the location of the bios jumper. None of it worked

Miyconst on 26 August 2020 23:16 says

Adam, unfortunately, you would have to use a low noise adapters like this one - Noctua Low-Noise Adaptor NA-SRC7.

Miyconst on 26 August 2020 23:18 says

Hamza, remove the battery from the motherboard and shorten the clear CMOS jumper. Wait like this for a few minutes and put the batter and the jumper back, then try to boot again.

Adam on 26 August 2020 23:23 says

Miyconst, great thanks for quick answer. I've ordered simple controller with high and low speed (will connect straight to PSU instead of mainboard).

Adam on 27 August 2020 13:18 says

One more question: I've TU my bios of x99-d8 with offset 20/20. E5-2673 works fine with turbo freq on all cores. Temps are low, cpu is stable under load of many different benchmarks... But it gives me BSOD (WHEA uncorrectable error) on cinebench r20 every time. Previous version runs smoothly. Btw. Is it possible that I've locked my bios somehow? I cannot reflash it again to version without undervolting...

Adam on 27 August 2020 13:35 says

Adam, i forgot to unlock bios after setting default settings. Reflashed to 0/0 version without any luck with r20 - crashing after few seconds. :( Any advices would be very appreciated, as I really want to beat my friend's ryzen in this benchmark :D

Adam on 27 August 2020 14:07 says

Miyconst, I've installed f8 bios on my x99-d8 and have a problem with freq. How to uninstall the driver you've mentioned in review?

Hamza on 27 August 2020 15:34 says

Miyconst, battery and jumper did not work I kept it for 1 day

Miyconst on 27 August 2020 16:40 says

Adam, to uninstall an installed EFI driver you have to clear CMOS, to remove an FFS driver you have to flash another BIOS file, which does not have the FFS driver installed.

The WHEA uncorrectable error BSOD usually indicates that the CPU has too low voltages, and it may hit you only when with the AVX instructions, which Cinebench R20 is known to be using.

IGOR SEIXAS on 30 August 2020 03:58 says

Hi! Miyconst! Greetings from Brazil!! You have some information about maximum TDP supported by X99-F8 Chinese Motherboard? I am looking to buy a E5-2693v3 wich has a TDP of 160W.

I am wondering if X99-F8 can support the wattage. And about Turbo Unlock, maybe it will be as usual for this processor too?

Thanks again for your great work!

Regards, Igor

Miyconst on 30 August 2020 11:10 says

IGOR SEIXAS, I would not recommend installing anything higher than 130 Watt on this board, but overclocked E5-1650 V3 easily consumes around 200 Watt, thus the 160 Watt E5-2693 V3 should also be fine with extra airflow over the VRM zone. Anyway, I would strongly recommend you JingSha X99 D8 instead of X99-F8.

IGOR SEIXAS on 31 August 2020 03:00 says

Miyconst! Thanks for your reply!! I will take a look in x99 d8. And about memory modules, can you recommend some specific model? I am trying to find SK Hynix 8G or 16G modules in Aliexpress but it hard to find hynix modules.

Thanks again!

Miyconst on 31 August 2020 07:37 says

IGOR SEIXAS, you don't need SK Hynix memory in particular, almost any ECC REG 8GB/16GB module should work. For example this ones - Samsung DDR4 Server RAM 8GB 16GB 32GB.

You can also buy the desktop RAM, but if you buy from AliExpress, ask the seller to send you 2/4/8 identical modules with 16 banks. The best is to buy a set of memory + motherboard + CPU, the seller will validate that the memory is supported by the motherboard.

sergio on 08 September 2020 23:57 says

I did something stupid. By mistake installed a single cpu one in a double cpu. My mainboard is a ZXDU99D4 v1.11 ... i used the Huananzhi x99-f8 -20mv in a Kllisre ZXDUx99D4... I know i screwed it up. The board starts, but is stuck in the american megatrend logo. it shows that the installed bios is GHX99014 but i cant get to pass through it.. Any solution? is there any bios recovery ?

Miyconst on 09 September 2020 00:36 says

sergio, the solution to your problem is described here - CH341a - minimal usage guide, how to read and write a motherboard BIOS.

Atretador on 09 September 2020 03:02 says


I got a X99Z 102 which doesnt give me video on bios on my RX5500XT, but I can boot on a previously installed linux installation.

To get to the bios, I need to use a old HD 4850 I have around as backup. Anything I could change to access the bios with the 5500 XT?

sergio on 09 September 2020 03:20 says

Miyconst, Man you rock! thanks, just ordered one from amazon and will try to fix it!

Miyconst on 09 September 2020 10:37 says

Atretador, you can try the following:

  • Boot with your HD 4850.
  • Go into the BIOS.
  • In the CSM configuration section change Video option to UEFI.
  • Save and reboot.

Beware, the HD 4850 may not work in the UEFI mode, but it's also not guaranteed that RX 5500XT will work on this motherboard even with UEFI mode enabled.

Mister0 on 09 September 2020 13:12 says

Hi Miyconst,

I really appreciated your work and effort in spreading the chinese motherboards awareness to the english speaking community as well! I'm on a very tight budget and are thinking on getting a Veineda x99 and a Xeon e5 2620 v3, but I'm unsure about the ram.

Do you have any particular recommendation for a 16gb (either 4x4 or 8x2) kit of desktop ram, on Aliexpress or sites like Amazon? Also any suggestion for a cpu cooler for the Xeon v3 on Aliexpress, one that also has a bracket for am4 motherboard?

Thank you again for your awsome work.

Miyconst on 09 September 2020 15:16 says

Mister0, I do not recommend buying desktop DDR4 memory from AliExpress for X99 motherboards. It's because these Chinese boards don't work with 4 & 8-bank modules, only 16-bank modules are supported. Thus, you have two options:

  1. Buy a motherboard / CPU / RAM set, in this case the seller will have to validate that everything works together.
  2. Buy ECC REG memory, for example this one - Samsung DDR4-2133MHz RAM 4/8/16 GB.
Diego on 11 September 2020 02:09 says

I have installed an E5-2650Lv3 in a Kllisre X99 LGA2011-3 with a Micron MTA9ASF1G72AZ–8GB (DDR4 ECC). I know is not an usual combination, but I was looking for a low power consumption with lots of cores. Everything is working ok (can install linux, runs memtest), but after testing it I have noticed that ECC, although detected, is not used. ECC support in BIOS is Enabled, lots of options about scrubbing, patrolling, but none about enabling usage of ECC.

Linux at boot says:

kernel: EDAC sbridge: CPU SrcID #0, Ha #0, Channel #0 has DIMMs, but ECC is disabled kernel: EDAC sbridge: Couldn't find mci handler kernel: EDAC sbridge: Failed to register device with error -19.

Memtest86+ also states that ECC is disabled, this is the easiest way to test, without booting Linux.

All the reviews I have found talk about the support of ECC memory, but I have never found more info regarding the actual usage of ECC. So I understand that support is only about the system using DIMMs with ECC capabilities, but not using the actual error correcction.

I have tested other DIMMs with ECC, and results are the same.

As far as I have discovered, something is missing in the motherboard or in the BIOS to enable ECC usage, or as some post in other forum says, there are missing traces in the motherboard that make ECC usage not possible.

You are by far the most expert person in chinese X99 boards. Have you ever run memtest to check if ECC is being used, as part of any of your reviews? What is your opinion about ECC usage? Maybe I could flash other BIOS that could add the support I'm missing? Nobody cares about using ECC? :)

Miyconst on 11 September 2020 09:18 says

Diego, from your comment it's not clear which Kllisre X99 motherboard you talk about. I have validated Memtest86 on JingSha X99 D8 and Huananzhi X99-TF/F8/T8, these boards are surely using ECC, since I have some memory modules which are slightly faulty, and Memtest86 detects errors corrected by ECC.

Diego on 11 September 2020 10:01 says

Miyconst, This one (it doesn't say much more on the description):


By your videos, looks the same as the Machinist X99Z V102.

Suprinsingly, it has an option for turning on when power is recovered (an option that I read was not available).

Miyconst on 11 September 2020 10:29 says

Diego, this is a Machinist X99Z renamed to Kllisre. I remember testing it with Memtest86, but I don't remember if ECC is actually enabled or not.

DIego on 11 September 2020 10:33 says

Miyconst, do you think I could flash another BIOS to be able to use ECC? If not, could you recommend another micro-atx board that could use ECC?

Thanks for your time!

Miyconst on 11 September 2020 12:46 says

DIego, I don't think there is any BIOS which would enable ECC on this motherboard, if it's disabled. As far as I know, all available modifications were made from the same original BIOS. You can try this option though - BIOS-iEngineer / MACHINIST-X99ZV102. Beware: I have not tried this BIOS myself and can't guarantee that it works well.

Regarding the other motherboards, I could guess that Huananzhi X99-8M should support ECC, but I can't guarantee that either.

sergio on 11 September 2020 19:24 says

Miyconst, Finally, the programmer arrived and i was able to recover the bios. The main problem is that the socket for cpu1 (the second one) and the rams of the second socket are not detected. This was actually the original problem i had and why i was trying another bios. Did you ever encounter this problem? I tried it with 2 identical E5-2670 V3 xeons. Also tried 2695V4 ES and 2695V3 ES, but the result is the same. Only 1 CPU detected. I already asked for a refund in amazon and i got the money, but i kept the motherboard and want to see if there any way to solve this, because other than detecting 1 cpu, it works fine...

Miyconst on 12 September 2020 08:29 says

sergio, it sounds like the second CPU socket is broken. The motherboard should refuse to start if you install two different CPUs, and it should see both E5-2670 V3, if they are identical. Take the CPU out from the second socket and see if you can spot any damage. Also try to connect both 8-pin CPU power connectors (if not connected yet).

Diego on 12 September 2020 12:16 says

Miyconst, do you have any screen capture of starting memtest of this boards? There is the info I need to be sure it has ECC enabled. Many thanks.

sergio on 12 September 2020 14:38 says

Miyconst, Yes, i connected both 8-pin CPU powe connectors and examined visually the socket to spot any bent pins, but it all looks fine at sight. Just wondered if you ever encountered this issue before, but it appears that the whole second socket section is non functional.

Miyconst on 12 September 2020 16:26 says

sergio, no, I didn't have such issue before.

Miyconst on 12 September 2020 16:27 says

Diego, I do have entire Memtest86 run recorded on a JingSha X99 D8, but I am not sure it shows the info you are looking for.

Diego on 12 September 2020 18:05 says

Miyconst, This is the thing I'm looking for... It should say ECC Enabled: Yes.


Miyconst on 12 September 2020 18:18 says

Diego, unfortunately, in my run I skipped this screen and went straight into the test. I still have the motherboard, so I will try to take another screenshot.

Bert on 12 September 2020 23:49 says

Hi,Miyconst. I made a custom loop pc with huananzhi x99 tf motherboard back in February. I was very happy with the machine. I followed your tutorial to turbo unlock the CPU by injecting driver directly into bios. Last night 09/11, my computer got an Windows update. This morning it's not able to boot up with an error code of 61: NVRAM initializing failure. How would I solve the problem? I feel like it's definitely has to do with the bios driver flash I did months back. Now I'm not able to boot up. Is there anyways to flash it back to stock bios like asus x99 motherboard has a physical usb bios flash button? Many thanks!

Miyconst on 12 September 2020 23:51 says

Bert, I am afraid that you have to use such tool to revive the motherboard - CH341a - minimal usage guide, how to read and write a motherboard BIOS.

Bert on 13 September 2020 00:01 says

Miyconst, sounds good! I will give it a try. Maybe this could be something you could take a note in case other people in the community has the same issue. I will keep you posted once I have fixed the problem! Thanks again!

Chew on 13 September 2020 10:03 says

Miyconst, hi, I think I might have the same issue like Vincent posted in June, I tried to take out the battery and power for 30mins but seem the pc won't boot into bios screen, as ur suggestions previously, I following the method below now

Remove the battery from the motherboard and power cord Shorten the clear CMOS jumper. Default is 23 pin, now I put 12 pin at JBAT1 Let the motherboard be like this for a few days as u recommend

Do I miss anything else?

DominicDT on 13 September 2020 17:08 says

Vincent, When you put the battery back did you do the bios factory reset by putting jbat1 interface (jumper) to the left or you just turn it on after putting the battery?

DominicDT on 13 September 2020 17:12 says

Miyconst, I think changing bios setting in machinist x99 is very sensitive because i change my CSM configuration all to uefi now it won't post I'm thinking about doing the same as vincent

Dlll on 13 September 2020 17:33 says

Miyconst, I forgot to put back the jumper pin to normal and pressed two time on the power switch before realizing it didn't powered on . Can it damage the motherboard? after putting it back it started the fans but still no post after modifying csm configuration in bios

DominicDT on 13 September 2020 17:37 says

I notice that the vrm and cpu are heating up when i just let it run without post

Chew on 14 September 2020 04:52 says

Hi, would anyone here have any backup copy of X99Z V102 BIOS? can share?

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 10:10 says

Chew, I have added the original Machinist X99Z BIOS to this list.

DominicDT on 14 September 2020 10:14 says

Chew, Does your motherboard look like the newer version of the machinist x99z v102? I regretfully change csm configuration in the bios now i have to wait for 7 days for my CH314a programmer. Now i dispute aliexpress for giving me faulty jbat1 cmos reset.

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 10:19 says

DominicDT, both of the X99Z V102 motherboards (with new and old heat sink) are exactly the same. The only difference is the size and appearance of the heat sink. I am not sure that you will be able to get anything back from AliExpress for this fault, but it is worth trying.

Anyway, there are some BIOS mods for this board, which claim to fix the clear CMOS function, but in my experience, it didn't fix it for any of the boards I have tested.

Right now, your only option is to use an external CH341a programmer.

Regrading damaging the motherboard by starting it with clear CMOS jumper shortened, it is theoretically possible to cause some damage, but I have not experienced anything like that in the past, while happened to do the same mistake a few times.

Chew on 14 September 2020 10:21 says

Miyconst, thanks hopefully after few days my pc able to boot. if really cannot boot, can i use ch341a to fix or my motherboard? or it already permanently been damage cannot been fix?

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 10:24 says

Chew, I can't say for sure, but if the issue is BIOS related, then you will be able to fix it with a CH341a.

DominicDT on 14 September 2020 10:37 says

Miyconst, Thank you very much!!! But is it really normal for the vrm and cpu to heatup when i leave it 5 - 10 mins even tho its not posting. Im worried that maybe my bios is damaging the cpu by overloading it with voltage. I know its a tough request but is it possible for you to make a video specifically for using CH314a to the machinist so that many of us will know what to do if were about to reflash the bios. Thank you again!! Wish you the best for helping others in your way

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 10:39 says

DominicDT, I already have a video about CH341a, it works identical on all motherboards, including Machinist X99Z.

DominicDT on 14 September 2020 11:21 says

Miyconst, Yep but there are things that i don't understand like plugging in the power supply? Should i just plug it in and turn the switch on in the power supply without pressing the power on button on the motherboard or should i connect the power supply and turn the motherboard on while flashing? Then should i use the 25 or 24 specifically for the machinist?

DominicDT on 14 September 2020 11:28 says

Miyconst, HAHAHAHAHAH sorry i replied without watching the video

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 11:30 says

DominicDT, it seems to be beneficial to watch the video before posting a question 😁.

DominicDT on 14 September 2020 11:37 says

Miyconst, Is it possible to for me to edit the bios that backup from my machinist. Is there a user friendly software for me (Converts binary) to change back my csm configuration to default

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 11:38 says

DominicDT, yes, there is. It's called - AMIBCP 5.02.0031.

Alex on 14 September 2020 13:04 says

Hi! I tried to flash Huananzhi X 99-EA original BIOS for Chinese X99-the computer hangs when loading with the code b0. Everything worked fine before flashing. What could be the reason and how to flash the BIOS without a programmer now?

Alex on 14 September 2020 13:06 says

I'm sorry, Huanyanzhi x99-tf

Miyconst on 14 September 2020 13:13 says

Alex, you need to provide more information:

  • Which BIOS?
  • Which motherboard?
  • How it was flashed?
  • When does the system hangs?
  • Are you able to get into the BIOS?
  • Did you clear CMOS after flashing the new BIOS?
DominicDT on 14 September 2020 20:41 says

Miyconst, Hi Miyconist i just wanted to ask if you're going to choose x79 or x99? And if you're going to choose x99 the cpu is e5 2620 v3 and if you're going to choose x79 (Choose cpu with same price range with e5 2620 v3). What are the advantages and disadvantages and which is the best to choose? Does x79 already unlocked turbo boost than x99? Does buying cpu for x79 with the same price as e5 2620 v3 is much faster and price performance? Thank you for you're response!!

DominicDT on 14 September 2020 21:45 says

Miyconst, I don't know how to describe my feeling right now Miyconst i didn't lose hope i tried many ways until i tried to close my eyes and imagine I'm going to the bios and figuring out the shortcut key for the Optimized default and finally after an aggressive guessing I accidentally figure out the right combination, It's f3 for the Optimized default and f10 for save and exit.I'm very happy right now

DominicDT on 15 September 2020 03:29 says

Miyconst, I installed a modified bios by VK239 Is it ok when I didn't install the EFI drivers and didn't disabled the C6 report parameter (I didn't experience any freezes or bluescreen). The turbo boost works without it, is their anything that can happen when i didn't install EFI driver?

DominicDT on 15 September 2020 03:32 says

Miyconst, I think the bios have a problem with sensors. My original bios shows integer not decimal in Power (Hwmonitor) But when i flash a modified bios ""(BIOS Date: 05/27/2020 12:00:00 Ver: AAX99018 + Optimized version. Changes: 1.

My Hwmonitor is showing 0.34w -0.7 w, Does it mean 34 and 70 watts? or is it just normal with Undervolted v3 mof

Miyconst on 15 September 2020 08:00 says

DominicDT, I have not yet tested that BIOS myself, thus I can't answer your questions. If Turbo Boost unlock works well in yrou case without any extra drivers installation, it means that you are using a BIOS with already applied hack.

Please text me on Instagram if you would like to discuss this thing further.

Omar on 15 September 2020 13:45 says

I have a Huananzhi X99-8M Clone - I want to use M2 but how can I setting it to work?

Anderson on 16 September 2020 21:39 says

I bought an atemiter x99 and does not work ssd m2, where can I find manual, or updated bios? Which bios is compatible?

Bert on 16 September 2020 23:47 says

Miyconst, Hi Miyconst. I don't know if it's appropriate to post under this thread again. If you remember my last post. I flashed the stock bios for huananzhi x99 tf but the same error still exist. I later realized that the error code might have been b1: runtime ap installation ends, not 61. I have tried to debug the problem by removing all unnecessary connections and rams. But the problem still exists. I was wondering if you have seen similar issue that a simple Windows update and a reboot would cause complete black screen and hardware breakdown? Any recommendations and advice would be greatly appreciated!

Miyconst on 17 September 2020 08:13 says

Bert, hi. You have got your CH341a and flashed the stock Huananzhi X99-TF BIOS, but the system still does not boot. Am I getting you right?

The only thing I could suggest is to try the following:

  • Flashing the stock BIOS.
  • Clear CMOS.
  • Remove everything you can remove from the motherboard, leave just one memory stick in one of the furthest memory slots from the CPU socket.
  • Try to boot.
  • If that doesn't work - try another memory stick.

If nothing works - we can conclude that the motherboard somehow got damaged by the Windows updates.

Chew on 17 September 2020 10:57 says

DominicDT, wow bro, congrats, my units after off power for 3 days CMOS still won't boot, need to wait till C314a reach to retest hope mine goes well as yours

DominicDT on 17 September 2020 14:49 says

Chew, Wish you luck bro!!!

Andres on 18 September 2020 20:48 says

Hello, i bought the JINGSHA X99 D8 motherboard LGA2011-3. It freezes sometimes when it is rebooting and when it enters in Windows 10. Do i have to replace the BIOS? I think i readed that i had to put the BIOS from the Huananzhi X99-F8 LGA 2011-3 cause it's better and can be used for the JINGSHA X99 D8.

Am i right?

Miyconst on 18 September 2020 21:24 says

Andres, please specify your full PC configuration and what you have done to isolate the issue. Personally, I am using Huananzhi X99-F8 BIOS with mine JingSha X99 D8 motherboard.

Andres on 18 September 2020 22:25 says

Miyconst, my PC configuration is this

JINGSHA X99 D8 Intel Xeon E5 1650 V3 SR20J 3,5 GHz 240ml liquid refrigeration system 1 DDR4 16GB 2400 Gloway RAM 1 JASTER SSD 2,5 "SATA 3,0 Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC 6GB GDDR6

When i was installing Windows 10, i had many problems cause it was freezing and maybe it was my fault cause i didn't knew how to order the boot.

It seems that when i installed the Windows 10 and it rebooted, and the Windows pendrive was still on, the computer freezed, but sometimes not.

Finally i used my old computer to install the Windows 10 in the SSD and inserted the SSD in the new computer.

But although i didn't connected any pendrive, it got freezed sometimes in different points, like in the Windows logo screen or when it just entered in Windows. Don't know why it freezes sometimes and in different points.

But when it freezes i reboot the computer and it's ok.

What kind of tuning do you recommend that i do in the BIOS? Maybe setting the RAM frequency?

What i'm going to do is replacing the BIOS with the Huananzhi X99-F8 LGA 2011-3, as you said it's better. Do you have any tutorial for flashing the BIOS? I'm a bit newbie, so i don't want to make it crash by a mistake.

Thanks a lot for your support Miyconst.

Andres, most likely you have received a motherboard with modified BIOS to supported the Turbo Boost Unlock hack. Such BIOS is not compatible with Xeon E5-1650 V3. You shall do the following:

  • Go to the BIOS.
  • Disable CPU Power Management. There shall be three options: Energy Efficient, Custom, and Disabled. You have to pick Disabled.
  • Disable CPU C3 & C6 state.
  • Boot into Windows and make sure that the system does not freeze.
  • Flash full BIOS without any modifications.
  • Turn off the PC and clear CMOS.
  • Turn on the PC and enjoy.

Miyconst, thank you.

Do you know where can i find any tutorial of how to flash the bios correctly? I'm searching through the Internet and can't find much. Don't know if these X99 chinese motherboards need to be flashed in a particular way or i can use any system, cause i fear that i make it incorrectly.

I saw in your tutorial 🇬🇧 Xeon E5-2600 V3 Turbo Boost Frequency Unlock – Detailed step by step guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkwEvATIgW0&t=8s a section of the video telling how to update BIOS, but i don't know if the process is for turbo boost only or can be used in general for updating bios (i see something about deleting CPU patches that confuses me).

Thank you.

Miyconst on 19 September 2020 19:57 says

Andres, the technique described in the tutorial can be used to flash any BIOS, the CPU microcodes part is only applicable if you want to perform the turbo-boost unlock hack. If you are still not sure how to read & write BIOS, you can take a look at my latest video - 🇬🇧 Mi899 – X99 Tool Set | read, write BIOS & unlock turbo-boost with a few mouse clicks.

Andres on 21 September 2020 12:05 says

Miyconst, thanks a lot for this program, although i already made the bios flash following a russian tutorial i found. As they were using the same processor as mine, the E5 1650 v3, i thought it will be a useful tutorial.

But it is strange that as many persons are buying these chinese motherboards, there are not any tutorials for flashing or tuning them correctly.

So this program you made will be very useful for many people.

The only thing i'm confused, is that there are many options for every motherboard, and i don't know which is the best or what does it means every option. For example "TU" is Turbo Unlocked i imagine, but don't know what is "FFS", and don't know what's the difference between -90/50mv and -50/50mv (for example).

I already flashed the JingSha X99 D8 with the Huananzhi X99-F8 bios and changed:

  • Memory frequency to 2400
  • Core max OC ratio to 45
  • Core voltage override 1300 As i saw it in your https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiojHBaQ4hs video for the E5 1650 V3

Now the computer doesn't freezes, is fine, and doesn't shows the error "v3 cpu_00 error:0x194.14" when i reboot the PC, as before it showed that message with the stock JingSha X99 D8 bios.

So i assume that the motherboard is fine tuned. But do you recommend me to flash the bios again with any of the presets of your Mi899-X9 tool? Don't know if the Miyconst optimized preset or any other like TU FFS -90/50mv will be better.

By the way, as i'm spanish, maybe i can help you with the spanish translation of the Mi899-X9 tool if you want, it will be nice for helping more people.

Thanks again.

Miyconst, after some flashing, result is that ECC in my original bios was disabled, don't know why. Using bios from https://vk.com/@2485616-running-x99z-v102-20113, or the one that you suggested from BIOS-iEngineer solved the problem. I was able to update with Afudos from https://vk.com/@2485616-running-x99z-v102-20113.

Miyconst on 21 September 2020 19:47 says

Andres, I am glad to hear that you have got your system working stable. Your problem was surely related to the Turbo Boost Unlock, which is not compatible with Xeon E5-1650 V3. This CPU has unlocked multiplier and works differently.

That being said, you surely don't have to flash anything else from the Mi899 suite. Enjoy your system and let's hope it's going to serve you well and for long.

Miyconst on 21 September 2020 19:48 says

Diego, thank you very much for the update. I have not yet had a chance to validate the iEngineer BIOS for X99Z, but right now I am using his Huananzhi X99-TF BIOS, so far I am very pleased.

Chew on 22 September 2020 18:45 says

Wow my PC is alive, thank for all the guidance

Chew on 23 September 2020 06:55 says

Miyconst, Really need to thanks for the mod BIOS, really don't know what to say, your really my idol

Diego on 24 September 2020 02:01 says

Hi again! Regarding Kllisre X99 V102, in aliexpress website says that maximum supportd memory is 64GB. How did you get to test 128GB? Has it something to do with a modified BIOS?

Miyconst on 24 September 2020 07:33 says

Diego, I have tested 32 GB modules with Machinist X99Z, 128 GB of RAM is possible with the stock BIOS. I believe there are some 32 GB modules, which are not compatible with X99Z motherboard, that's why Chinese only claim 64 GB support to don't bother with questions why this or that 32 GB module is not recognized.

I want to share my experience with X99I-CE5 MiniDTX. I set it up with 2660v3 and 2x8GB micron 1Rx4 2133mhz rdimm. Clear cmos does not work, same behavior as X99Z. From user ANDRIKSTORM on overclockers.ru, he stated using modified bios made by Vasily Temnikov for X99Z (ZX-DU99D4_V1.11 version) works for X99I-CE5. He said other modified bios for X99Z from Vasily did not work. I have flashed that bios and so far it works great for my X99I. It fixes clear cmos jumper, has working turbo boost unlock, and memory timings. My X99I had 8MB bios chip.

I may try other bios (iEngineer or VK239). But I have to take off low profile heatsink to fit bios flash clip in case bios is incompatible, so that is annoying work.

One issue I see is frequent I/O logic retry error on Disk in event viewer. I had to install intel rst driver for x99 to resolve that problem. Default win10 ahci driver was causing problem.

I have one question about CPU power. According to cpu world, xeon e5 2600v3 have C6 state ~12-13W. But with default locked turbo bios and C6 state, my CPU idle power is ~30W. How is everyones idle power consumption? With turbo boost unlock, I only have C1 idle and it is ~50W. If I enable CPU Power Management to Energy Efficient, then supposedly I have C2 idle and it is ~42W. Turbo boost unlock still works with Energy Efficient option in bios. Anyone know how to achieve lower idle power?
