After hard work, to connect careful cooler "be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3"

and fit the ram under it,

I get now 5200 MHZ on EVGA z390 dark motherboard,

tested with prime95

Dietmar

 

EDIT: On 3 cores I get 100 degree at 220 Watt,

         this I dont like.

So, I switch back to 5100 MHZ, gives 78 degree on

all cores with 150 Watt during Prime95.

Asrock fatal1ty z370 gaming k6 8700k fixed voltage 1.400 Volt at 5.000Ghz

on nvme XP SP3.

Nice cheap motherboard

Dietmar

 

PS: Here I use cooler "be quiet Dark rock pro 4".

This cooler is much more easy to install than pro 3,

cooling power is the same.

The cooler "be quiet Dark rock pro 4" is much worse attached to the motherboard than the "be quiet Dark rock pro 3" and even wobbles a bit,

brrr..

Dietmar

 

PS: This happens, because now only 2 screws are used and on Dark rock 3 there are 4 of them.

And both schemes are "wrong", though CPU's are not (yet) triangular or round:

Hi, this picture I make just now.

It shows XP SP3 booted direct from USB 3.2 Asmedia 3142 chip with EWF enabled,

stable at 5400 MHZ. The Kanguru USB stick is the only device.

 

The cooler "be quiet" Dark Rock Pro 4 is bad for the Asus Apex X board.

May be because of this, Asus stopped to fabrikate this board. It gives Bios message CC and then 55.

You cant use the second memory slot. When only the first slot is populated, this Bios error is gone.

Crazy, when you do not connect the cooler Dark Rock Pro 4 very strong to the board, the error goes away also..

 

For the asrock fatal1ty z370 gaming k6 board and the EVGA z390 dark board,

Dark Rock Pro 4 can be mounted careful and gives temperatures about 80 degrees at 230 Watt cpu load.

This is 20 degrees(!) better than the dark rock pro 3, I just changed them on the same board, here Asrock.

 

In the evening today the X79 Sabertooth board arrived. So tomorrow I start with Bios update for nvme

Dietmar

EDIT: I rotatet the Dark Rock pro 4 on the Asus Apex X motherboard 90 degrees.

          Now all is ok.

No, I am at the very first beginning,

fetching all drivers for this board.

Next I try to let the nvme optane 905P been recogniced.

 

Then comes the hard work with to put legacy nvme to Bios,

Are you using 4960X ?
I like LGA 2011 since all CPUs for it have 40 PCI-e lanes (more than enough for GPU(s) and NVMe drive).

It should work, I'm more interested in EFI moding :)

PS. My second pair of speakers for my very first PC, were the exact ones that you are now using (SBS260 from Creative) :D

The processor is i7-4820k,

very fast. It is a 4 channel memory mainboard,

means more than 40 Gbyte/s !

Just in this moment I test boot via s4e

from nvme optane 32 GB,

With 1866MHz memory, I get around 55GB/s with AIDA64 ;)

PS. My next idea on legacy NVMe boot moding BIOS was to swap PciBus and PciRootBridge.

s4e is best!!!

This is XP SP3 on nvme Optane 32 GB

without Bios modding, cool.

For this I make with Aomei a copy of the harddisk to the optane drive,

after recognicing optane nvme.

Then I make a bit to bit copy of the optane drive with Winhex and store it as optane.dat.

This optane.dat  I copy also bit by bit to an USB 3 stick.

Shut compi down.

Now only the USB stick is connected and the optane drive.

During USB boot, the stick looses contact because no usb files for boot on it

and blind;)) XP takes the nvme optane drive, because 100% identic with the USB stick,

just all, mbr, partition, a clone. Before boot ends I disconnect the USB 3 stick.

Boottime all together is few seconds.

Dietmar

 

PS: This XP feels incredible fasssssstt..

 

e5be29-1555183922.jpg

 

I just run Cinebench, 3Dmark2001, prime95 on the optane drive all together at the same time and music video from Youtube,

Amazing stable, I like this board a lot :D !

To install new software on the nvme disk is not so easy, because its counterpart on USB stick has not.

Best option : Plug sdcard reader into internal USB port to have all external USBs free (exchangeable microSD cards wtih XP FTW)  :)

The hard work in Bios legacy nvme boot will be,

to extract the needed parts for nvme legacy boot from the x79 deluxe board nvme Bios.

Lost_N_BIOS from the Fernando forum told me, how to force install complete whole parts of one Bios

to another. I use for this Win7.

The risk, that Bios is broken is high, even with flash back.

I "succeed" with this also on the Asus Apex X board. But there seems to stay some parts of Bios undeletable on second Bios

and the compi itself makes an update of its Bios internally, really crazy,

Dietmar

 

PS: The Bios chip here on Sabertooth X79 is on a socket, so no big problem.

Next what I do before Bios hack

is a complete copy of this Bios with CH341A USB Programmer 24 25.

For this I have to connect by hand all the pins of the Bios Chip to it.

But after this, I am on the 100% safe site :)

The first step is done,
I read out the full Bios ship Winbond 25Q64BVAIG with the Eprom flasher CH341a,
doublecheck ^_^ it 2 times,
all is safe so lets start fun:)),
Dietmar

PS: Be careful, on the screen of the program AND on the programmer CH341a itself
the point 1 mark is exact on the wrong site :o , crazy!!!

Ok, first brute force try,

to change whole Bios region of X79 Sabertooth

against the whole Bios region of X79-Deluxe failes,

compi does not start any longer^^

Dietmar

 

EDIT: By the way, I found a strange thing, that happens in Bios.

I reread the original Bios today and compare it against the original Bios

from yesterday. When I compare it with Winhex, it is changed in more than 1000 places.

This simple means, the compi is writing to the Bios all the time!

I put from Bios of Asus x79-Deluxe into the Bios of Asus Sabertooth X79

the new nvme dxe driver

nvme

nvmeint13

nvmesmm

 

Also I change whole dxe driver

CSMCORE

because the search in  Asus x79-Deluxe Bios shows, that in CSMCORE raw component appears the word nvme also.

 

The Sabertooth board still starts with this changes in its Bios, but nvme drive cant be seen

Dietmar

 

PS: Now I compare the last Bios version 0902 for Asus x79-Deluxe (without nvme)

against the next following Bios version 4805 for Asus x79-Deluxe    (with nvme).

S4e nvme boot via USB still works, this is amazing.

Also, why you didn't tried NTFS module ?

@agent_x007,

my problem ist, that I have no idea,

how those nvme files work in Bios.

I found no relevant(?!) changes between the

Bios from the Asus X79-Deluxe board

before nvme Bios and after.

So it is like searching in the dark :P

Dietmar

 

PS: For Asus it would be very easy. I think, those nvme files are all the same,

written in C, and they have only to compile it for the Sabertooth

board.

Another idea would be, to put an own nvme rom image

into the Bios, like Plop does for USB.

I just try the same Bios mod for Sabertooth X79

but now with the nvme Bios from the Asus X99 Sabertooth board.

There, the nvme files are a little bit different

EDIT: Does not work.

CSMCORE

LegacyInterrupt

LegacyRegion

Nvme

NvmeSmm

NVMEINT13

EDIT: Board starts normal, but still no nvme device recogniced from Bios.
