    Can you upload it for me? The link that ghost posted is broken

    @EDIT
    Alright, alright. After SOME HOURS i finally found a modded bios with a link that isn't broken.
    Now I know the differences between ME Firmware and MEI (or almost).
    Can someone help me for now on? Fix me if I'm wrong:
    I found the F21-E rev 3 modded bios from @ghostearth
    On that bios hes using the 8.1.51.1471 ME FW and its supposed to me update manually after the flash for the MEI Firmware_8.1.52.1496. Right?

    Now the Intel INF, what is this?
    Also, If I use the UBU tool with the MMTool I don't have to flash after using a usb stick with the Q-FLASH method?
    This UBU tool is confusing me.
    After the UBU tool I have to shutdown my PC, enter on BIOS and go to "LOAD OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS THEN BACK TO BIOS"?

    Stranger from the future, If you need the links to download that modded bios, PM me or check the page 420 till 440, look for ghostearth posts, the mediashare links are all broken, but the data one is fine.

        Hey guys,

        I have a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H motherboard with an i7-4790 non-K CPU. I'm trying to run it @ 4,00 GHz on ALL cores (without changing BCLK), but when I set the multiplier to 40x in UEFI, it drops to 38 for all cores under load. Tried with BIOS F10e, F10c, F9.

        I've heard about modded BIOS versions that allow overclocking by enabling MCE - Multi Core Enhancement for non-K CPUs. Does anyone have a modded BIOS that will work with my board?

        There's a list of modded files on the first page of this thread and there seems to be a modded BIOS file F8e, but I have no idea if this is what I need.

        Any help is appreciated.

        Cheers

            Greetings to all members. Is anyone running 10 or 12 core Xeon E5 v2 in their X79 motherboards?

            I have GA-X79 UD3 v 1.1 updated to BIOS F20 and I'm trying to run Intel Xeon E5 2697 v2 - 12 cores, 130W TDP. This CPU is not listed in the
            CPU support list but decided to try it anyway. The system is passing POST with no issues and booting but Windows 7 Pro recognizes only 8 cores (16 logical), although the CPU is properly show as Xeon E5 2697 v2 in Device Manager. I thоught that the OS will show at least 20 cores as Xeon E5 2680 V2 is listed as supported CPU and it is 10 core/20 threads.
            Then updated to F21e beta MOD rev3 BIOS but same thing - only 16 CPUs shown in Device Manager.

            Now I wonder if there is no microcode in the F20 BIOS for this CPU or it's some motherboard/BIOS architecture limit. I remember years ago some laptops with Core 2 Duo could not run Core 2 Quad CPUs even if they are the same socket, same chipset etc. and eventually if someone was able to boot with C2Q, OS would show only 2 cores.

            Searched the forum for any info about 12 core CPU on X79 motherboard but could not find anything. All Gigabyte X79 motherboards does not list 12 core Xeon CPU's but 10 core CPU as the 2680 v2 is listed.

            Any info or help will be appreciated.

            Edid: everything is OK, task manager shows all PCUs from 0 to 23, also did a quick test render and there are 24 cores.

                  @stasio - I tried sending you a PM, but it didn't work, so I'll try here once again.

                  Hi,

                  I've been reading the Gigabyte Mod BIOS thread for quite a while and I really hope you can help me. I have some Gigabyte Z87 and H87 boards here and I'm trying to "upgrade" them by allowing max Turbo on all cores. I found out that you need the 06C307 Microcode for Haswell CPUs to enable AllCore Turbo / Multicore Enhancement for CPUs like 4770 non-K, right?

                  But does this work with Haswell Refresh CPUs too? I have a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H motherboard with an i7-4790 non-K CPU. I'm trying to run it @ 4,00 GHz on all cores (without changing BCLK), but when I set the multiplier to 40x in UEFI, it drops to 38 for all cores under load. Tried with BIOS F10e, F10c, F10, F9 and F8. After reading this thread carefully, I downloaded MMTool 4.50 and I inserted CPU Patch 06C307 into F10 - but will this work with my 4790?

                  I'm also looking for a similar BIOS mod, for a H87-HD3 board - F9 mod with max AllCore Turbo enabled, do you know where I can find that? If the Microcode will work with Haswell Refresh CPUs, I could insert the Microcode on my own.

                  Any help is appreciated. I can send you a "tip" if you can help me.

                  Happy holidays & thanks in advance!

                    mac_gyver,
                    yes this should work on Z87 but not sure on H87 (try to insert same microcode).

                      Hi,
                      how can i change version name in BIOS from GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK bios ?

                        Is there a mod BIOS P55A-UD4P? I compared the UD4 vs UD4P BIOS from Gigabyte site and they're different @ Version F14.
