For the amount of money, why not make it a DIY project??? I could easily send 11,000.00+ through them and still not get a quad SLI SR-X


Of course.  Just pointing out that there must be at least a little to be gained via BCLK if they are offering it.

 
Great find.  From the post here, it looks like a max of 105 on the BCLK.  Now, Origin does not say how much the OC will be;)
Will be interested to see how high they can go......high enough to make people want to purchase for OCing?  Who knows.

thegreatga

will the sas ports support raid 5 each so i could create two logical drives out of eight physical drives in raid 5? I know its only sata ii but its my understandig that non ssd's dont saturate sata ii anways?

Yes, the SAS support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and JBOD.

Where did you see the prices?I see the 2687 as being more expensive than the 2690. The 2687 being higher frequency.
Some places buy servers in bulk, which gives them a discount on the components. Then they take the cpus out to customise the servers to their customers needs.
It is a reason to be careful if buying tray parts

Jacob, does having all the PCIe slots from one CPU have anything to do with how nVidia restricts SLI certification on Sandy Bridge-EP motherboards?

 
No, the SLI certification thing was just a licensing issue, it isn't free.

People whant power, not restrictions.
If you put down money for a complete SR-X setup, there should be NO restriction what so ever

With respect, if the number of people and how much they are willing to spend don't add up to the cost of implimentation, then a business isn't going to bother with it.  That any of us are willing to pay whatever it takes means absolutely nothing unless 1) there are enough of us to break-even from or 2) we pay for the whole development ourselves.  The reason everything we can buy exists for purchase is because there was more demand than the cost to get it out there.  Top-dollar items just refer to the maximum allowed features that the company could afford to sell; SR-X is the best it can be for who it was intended for, if you're unsatisfied then you weren't the target market.
 
Chances are EVGA already knew with zero unlocked Xeon E5-2600's to wire the board to take single i7's and thus route most of the PCIe lanes through one CPU; and not being able to wire it for a second CPU worth of lanes.  You got to give EVGA credit for doing their homework and producing their product for their intended target customer.

Indeed, the fact that they did this means they did do their homework.  I have a question though, who IS their target customer?  Before it was quite obvious, but with no unlocked chips on a board that's main selling point is overclocking...who are they selling this to?  I can't figure it out:)

Assuming you weren't being sarcastic, the biggest clues are in EVGA's news articles comparing X79 to SR-X: X79 brags overclocking, SR-X does not.  In otherwords, EVGA wasn't expecting to gain overclockers with SR-X; that they can survive on the other uses of the board from extreme power users, server admin, to folders and crunchers -- the latter could be the strongest market for EVGA.   It may be possible that the majority of SR-2 customers didn't put Xeon overclocking in priority, remember the majority of frequent posters on the forums don't represent all customers.
 
The addition of the PCIe 3.0 PLX chip in SR-X and not in their X79 certain pushes those customers interested in multiple PCIe 3.0 cards.  I was schoolded by X79 members that while games may not saturate PCIe 2.0 yet, computational ues of graphics cards can, so those users see a more significant difference from x8 to x16 2.0, thus feel similar about 3.0.  It is EVGA's gamble whether those customers choose to put their demands in priority and choose another brand with more PCIe lanes, as opposed to being loyal to EVGA's new Global Warranty.  I don't think it was made for simplifying the process.  They are a business, everything they do is suspect, even their poll on the front page is another form of market analysis.
 
All is not lost with SR-X, they added single i7 use just to net those who may want more than an X79 with the option of a pair of 8-cores whenever they choose to, since none of EVGA's X79's allow Xeon E5's [yet].
 
Before with SR-2, EVGA allowed Xeon 5000's in X58 as a temporary, but it becomes a sale for Intel and not EVGA, so to speak.  Allowing one i7 in SR-X allows EVGA to make a sale while users don't get an X79, the difference is negligible to Intel but significant to EVGA.

Re:eVGA SR-3 2012/03/20 02:51:54 (permalink)
its called the tick-tock method, intel releases two generations staggered of each architecture and socket. so you get a low architecture chip released first that works on the new socket and gives a chance to experiment and improve for the tock cycle release of the high end new architecture chips. look at the release dates of the 1366 socket Xeons. they started off with a small batch (comparable to the current 2011 offerings) which were not very powerful and overall mediocre, then the next year they came out with the high end 1366 socket chips. the ones most of the SR-2 users have now. if anything EVGA should be praised for releasing this at the beginning of the cycle, letting us get our hands on it and play with it, work out the kinks and bugs before the cycle with the (im guessing) unlocked chips comes out. who wants to work out normal bugs while having overclockers shove complaints down your throat because they expect it to already be refined?
all in all, great board, ill be getting one, along with a waterblock from nateman_doo. haters will hate.

Is this mobo compatible with XEON 5125? The 5125 is SocketP LGA 3647, but there is no explicit mention of it on any SR-3 related stuff that I've been able to find.

Hello.
Just bought this board and I wonder if anyone knows if its finnicky with RAM?
Any particular brands/models that dont work? or can you pretty much throw any DDR3 ECC RAM without problems?

Edit.
Plan is to put 12x8gb sticks in, if Im not wrong it wont support more than 96gb? 

Many Thanks, Halibut King.

Ty so much for that post, I only managed to find the manual.

Seems like the SR-X dont support Xeon V2, I got two xeon 26997v2 I was planning to pop in.
From what I can see Xeon E5 2687W is the strongest CPU supported?

Happy to help
 
I can't help you on the CPU front, as I have never owned a SR-X

Re: eVGA SR-X (SR-3) 2024/02/21 09:53:28 (permalink)
Ok.
Did some digging and found it does seem to support Xeon v2 series but only way to get it to post with two CPUs is to use ECC RAM.
Sounds crazy but there is a Y-tube video from GamersNexus that found that out.


Also gotten the board. And wow its a beauty, not single scratch and looks more or less brand new (little bit of dust here and there).
Even got what I think is the original peripherals that it came with. Says EVGA on the backsides of the plastic bags and are OLD, never opened too, none of them.
Looks like the board is hardly ever used, but seller said it working perfect and he just updated the BIOS before he shipped it.
Only thing missing I think is the Box it was sold in.

Still waiting for the ECC RAM so cant test it yet, but should arrive this or next week :)

Edit. 
Seems like I cant post pics or links.

Plan is to load it up with 12x8gb ECC RAM, 2x2697v2, 4x3060. Gonna crunch some numbers on it.

Not sure how PCIE lanes are configured on the board (seems a little funky), from what little Ive read so far it supports 4 gpus at x16 x16 x8 x8, not sure if there is no more lanes left for 5th GPU and is used for other stuff?
Would like to use a NVME disc in a PCIE slot as well.
Anyone know if you can turn down PCIE speed in BIOS and run it x8 x8 x8 x8 for GPUs + NVME disc in PICE card for example?
or its a hard limit with max 4 PCIE slots in use at the same time?

I stumbled upon it on the domestic market place here in Norway.
He was selling it as a whole server but also parts alone. 
When I found it RAM, PSU and some other stuff was already sold.

I had no idea how rare this board was at first. I was just looking for boards that can support several GPUs with decent PCIE speed.

But after I bought it and looked around a little bit more about it I realized it must be pretty rare, couldnt find a single one for sale anywhere else.
Also looked up some history about it, pretty interesting, seem to be made to be a proper OC machine bud sadly didnt turn out that way due to locked CPUs.

I post some results from when I get the RAM and can fire her up. Hopefully wont be any issues :)

//Halibut King

Edit.
Will also do my best to not get any marks or scratches on it, because it looks brand new tbh.

Re: eVGA SR-X (SR-3) 2024/02/24 20:07:24 (permalink)
Fired up the board tonight. 
Got it to boot no issues with 2x2697v2, so that works =)

Small issue, it wont post with DIMM slot 5 or 6 populated.
With slot 5 populated I get post code 67 and stuck, with slot 6 populated I get code 60 and stuck.
So right now 10 DIMM slots populated with 80gb of RAM.

Little bit of bummer, might try to re-seat the CPUs and if that dont work I have 2x2687w try with as well.
Else the board seem to work fine.

Had to improvise with CPU coolers because the coolers Im supposed to use has gotten delayed and the ones right now is wrong socket and weak so I just slapped them on.
Only been in BIOS quickly and checked that everything was working.

Will also send a message to seller and see if he ever had any issues with the DIMM slot, I know he only used 8 sticks, but those should be populated with that setup.

Fired up the board tonight. 
Got it to boot no issues with 2x2697v2, so that works =)

Small issue, it wont post with DIMM slot 5 or 6 populated.
With slot 5 populated I get post code 67 and stuck, with slot 6 populated I get code 60 and stuck.
So right now 10 DIMM slots populated with 80gb of RAM.

Little bit of bummer, might try to re-seat the CPUs and if that dont work I have 2x2687w try with as well.

what good news! both xenons work!
It's a shame that the 12 banks of ram don't work! It could be the failed mother itself, or the CPU memory controllers!

very great evga collector

Finally gotten my coolers and have some time to tinker.

Anyone know if its possible to boot from a NVME drive in a PCIE adapter? 
I have no issues installing Linux on it, and I see the PCIE card connected in BIOS with correct speed, but it refuses to boot from it and goes straight to BIOS.

Guessing this board is too old to have BIOS support to boot from NVME drive? It does not show up under Boot Options.
Or am I missing a setting in BIOS? 

Edit. I have the latest BIOS according from what I found at the Download Center, v1.04

Some good news, I re-seated the CPU, took out the 2 RAM sticks with issues and blew 2 DIMM-slots clean with my mouth for good luck, and guess what, all DIMMs works :D

I believe it was the CPU, because I tried re-seating the RAM many times before and already cleaned the DIMM slots out, but who knows ;)
