EVGATech_JoseCHello if you have an EVGA X299 Motherboard and if you are getting Post Code 'df' with the new CPU's, please contact EVGA support and we can have a BIOS chip with the most up to date BIOS flashed onto it. That will help the board get up and running. If you own an EVGA X299 Micro2 motherboard (121-SX-E296-KR) a RMA will need to be set up as that particular board does not have a removable BIOS chip. Our email would be firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via phone at 1.888.881.3842.Make sure to have your motherboard registered to your EVGA account otherwise, you can register the motherboard here https://www.evga.com/support/register.asp
random_mattI'm on the latest 1.12 (I think), that is the most recent right? And shouldn't have the problem the OP had, correct?

Avenger411Officially got past “dF” and now in bios! God this saga is finally over :). Bios 1.19 does indeed fix the “dF” post code for newcomers!Cheers !
Avenger411That’s great! Wish i would’ve gotten that board for free too :)! Have fun with your new hardware :)
rblaes_99yea. that's my son in the post above. needless to say he is very happy. aside from my BIOS frustrations I am kind of sad that I had ignored the x299 dark for so long. What an amazing motherboard. the BIOS is the best I have seen and the OC robot is wonderful. I love being able to switch off the unused PCI slots and enable "dark mode" and turn off LEDs..... I am looking at ordering another one for myself while they are only $350. I know the i9-10x series stuff is getting beat up in the reviews, but our chip is screaming at 5.135. I am totally impressed.
