Intel Xeon W-2275 + WS C422 MB

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

Quick question. Has anyone got the combo ASUS C422/PRO/SAGE and Intel Xeon W-2275 CPU working? Thus far I've had two motherboards (both the ASUS WS C422 PRO/SE and ASUS WS C422-SAGE) and three CPUs and none are working. I made a thread about the first issue I had: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1198774-bios-loop/

Now, with the ASUS WS C422-SAGE card I don't even get into BIOS. The system starts and signal Q-LED "DF" and the CPU-LED is red. I've tried with two CPUs, no visible damage or anything. I use a Noctua NH D15 cooler and installation has always been smooth.

 

I am beginning to think this combo is completely non-compatible....

DF

The last mobo issue on this forum that I read that had that error code was effectively that the mobo needed a BIOS update before it'd see the CPU, which is a troick because you can't get into the BIOS because it doesn't see the CPU...


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Interesting... thanks for the tip. I had a look at the BIOS Flashback feature which would allow you to update BIOS without CPU/GPU or even memory. I think I'll try this out.

I am writing this from my new Xeon W-2275 workstation. All that was needed was a BIOS upgrade which were very easy to do with the ASUS Flashback feature. Create the BIOS/USB, rename the BIOS file as written in the manual. Plug it in, push the button, let it blink green for a few mins and there you go. I did have the CPU/memory installed but I don't think that was necessary. I think the only requirement was ATX power.

 

Much credit to Radium_Angel for the tip. ASUS own support gave the following answer:

 

"Q-Code DF is not a normal error code, this is developement use only. This code combination with red Q-lED light suggests a CPU problem.
After the troubleshooting you have already done, this problem most likely is the motherboard. Please contact the retailer where you bought your system from for warranty processing."

 

LTT>ASUS confirmed ;)

Hello, I have the same problem with w-2275+ws c422 ace+2933mhz as your previous post https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1198774-bios-loop/, and the ASUS have just sent me a new bios to fix this which has not been posted in website yet. Do you need it?

 

And you said you had got it working? I wonder what motherboard and memory frequence do you use? c422 ACE or SAGE? 2933 or 2666mhz?
