BIOS 74 Updates:
  • Corrects 15x uncore multi shown as 16x in BIOS with Intel 980X
BIOS updating can be accomplished VIA the below methods:



CD/DVD Installation - Recommended installation method
  • Download the correct .iso file below for your motherboard:
         132-GT-E768-KR/TR - EVGA X58 FTW3

         132-BL-E758-A1/TR - EVGA X58 SLI
         121-BL-E756-TR - EVGA X58 SLI Micro
  • Insert blank floppy disk into drive and run executable
  • After the floppy has written fully, restart the machine, go into the BIOS and load defaults, save and exit
  • Now set the USB Floppy as the primary boot device, or press escape while the system is booting to select USB Floppy as the bootable device
  • After flash remove the floppy, power off PC Completely
  • Turn on the PC and load defaults in BIOS

    Thanks for the update Jacob. Looks like the EVGA BIOS engineering team has been focusing their efforts on the Core i7 Extreme 980X to provide X58 Classified customers with prioritized updates. Good stuff!

    Hopefully once the 980x is fully integrated EVGA will start working on the other issues... All the recent bios updates have been to accomodate the 980x.

    This has reach the point of being absurd! All I see is updates for the $1000 980x! How about the rest of us 90%? Some fixes for the major problems plaguing this board, maybe?


    I used to respect EVGA but seeing as we can't even get any feedback or an admition to there being a problem with the way VT was implemented on this board, I definitely do not anymore.


    I',m pretty sure someone will have some lamo response to turn of VT, so here is a preemptive reply to them, I cannot, as I use the feature all the time. 

    I am in the market for a new Video Card but seeing as I have just lost yet another Hard Drive due to this VT Bug which by the way no other x58 chipset motherboard has. This will definitely be the last Product I buy from EVGA Period! I will also be telling everyone I know not to purchase anything from this company!


    This damned bug has now cost me almost $300. I am mad as hell.

    DarkOneZ13, do tell me more about this VT and killing hard drives.  I'm about to receive a B-Stock 578 board tomorrow and would like to avoid killing anything.  Although I did read some scary stories about EVGA killing several components I could not resist the cheap price.  Now it's setting in as to why it may have been so cheap.

    System:

    EVGA 132-BL-E758 B-Stock
    Intel i7 930 @ 2.8 Ghz
    12 gb Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C7 7-8-7-20 @ 1.65V
    Corsair H50 with push/pull
    2 x XFX Radeon HD 5770
    Ultral 600W PSU (Free after rebate!)
    Coolermaster CM 690 case

    I'm not sure if this is an issue with the 980x, but I think it is. Now, I know that my 980x isn't broken because I replaced it and had the same exact issues. Also replaced the motherboard. But I can't get all memory to show Tri-Channel (I would get 3.99 usable). I suspect it being some sort of BIOS related issue because my previous 920 was able to pick up the memory when placed in the very same slots. 980x however, will not. I've replaced it thinking maybe it was broken, but I highly doubt I'm having the same exact issue with two. If maybe we can work out a BIOS update that can fix known memory issues with 980x processors...that'd be great.

    I've added this to the BIOS Changelog for the E759 Classified Limited Edition Board (<-link), in case you want to check out the notes and links for current and past BIOSes, both official and beta (Twenty-four of them and counting...) for this great motherboard.

    Hmmmm.  I have not been in the forums for a while and would have to ask about this one. I have a 760-A1 and have now had to replace THREE hard drives on this board. I am unaware of this issue and was chalking it up to a run of bad hard drives!
    I have two WD 300GB VelociRaptors in RAID 0 and two WD 750GB drives in RAID 1. The failure is always on the same drive in SATA 3. After the second failure I replaced the SATA cord to see if that might be the problem but had another one fail just this week in the same SATA port. So far WD has RMA’d them for me without issue, but it’s a pain and shipping is not cheap.
    If someone could post a link to this issue I would appreciate it.

    Been there, done that. No seriously, I think I've tried everything in my BIOS. At this point, I am willing to say that it is something a BIOS update needs to address.

    If you were following the 'not all memory available' threads you would notice it's not a problem that is even close to being limited to 980's, nor 35nm CPUs. We seem to have a large number of ppls with nearly the same compliant, on different boards, with different memory mfgrs, and many different BIOSes. The common theme seems to be they have BIOSes dated this year. But some of them have tried older BIOSes and they failed to fix. Also, some have RMAd mobos, CPUs, and RAM and still not fixed. I don't know what to make of it. Even the Asus R3E has this prob right now.

    I absolutely agree with you, DarkOneZ13 : a lot of people have complained about the double pump issue over the course of several different BIOS updates because it still isn't fixed. It's about time that EVGA does something about it and allocates (more) resources to this issue so that a solution can be found quickly, this repeated power-off-and-on cycling is indeed shortening the lifespan of hardware (I'm convinced that it's not limited to storage media only, but also other peripherals) due to the additional power surges this double pumping causes... THIS SHOULD BE MADE HIGH PRIORITY.


    @ EVGA_JacobF : can you please explain to your customers (who spent a lot of money on your products) what you are doing in regards to this issue ???

    There are a slew of memory issues I have both encountered and read about. They all have the similar symptom of disappearing RAM but it seems like there are a number of ways this could happen. The 980x one that I referred to, while probably not limited to the 980x, just refuses to use all of the RAM in tri-channel. Even when used in dual channel, the RAM goes away after a shut down. Now, I know that people say they've had the same thing happen on other processors but in my experience, I previously had a 920 which would only lose RAM when overclocking (which the previous BIOS update finally addressed). I wonder if P55 mobos have the same issue. Not that I'd consider going to it, but just curious.

    I have suffered from VT double pump and needed to RMA two drives (which were not really old, 2009 models) over the last year. I have not RMAed a single drive since I first I bought my own PC in 2001.

    EVGA at least should allow to setup the timer to be larger than its default of 2-3 seconds. If evga has thrown in the towel and accepted that this problem is beyond their engineers to fix and the boards MUST really shut down and restart for VT to work, please allow the shut off time to be configurable in BIOS. You CANNOT just turn it off and turn it on right away.

    For people who use VT:

    1. Do not restart your system. Turn it off. Count till 15 (1001, 1002...1015) and turn it on. That is if you don't hate your data and really love killing hard drives and really enjoy the process of RMA.
    2. Disable VT for the duration of overclock testing.

    Let me take this opportunity for another shout out:

    Please fix the S3 issues with your boards!

    EVGA X58 SLI Rev 1.1
    i7 920 D0 LinX/Prime Stable 4.4(21x210) HT ON

    No, it's for running an application in a "Virtual machine." Has little to do with "multiple OS" - when referred to as different multiple OSes. If by multiple SAME OS, then yes, that description applies; but the avg person reading your reply is not thinking you mean this.

    It is for when you want to run an app without allowing it full access to your whole real OS system. One would do this to test what a virus would do for instance. It just so happens that other OSes can also be simulated. Think of it as like running a car on a dynamometer to test real-world situations and stress, or to take engine measurements under load. It is running Windows 7 within Windows 7 for instance. Programmers use it for testing debugging their newly made code - without the bugs bringing the whole OS down.

    LOL HE SAID " MULTIPLE OS APPLICATIONS" NOT "MULTIPLE OS"
     
    What I use it for is this in windows i can use say vmware to run linux on a virtual machince to have my PC fold a linux client in windows while useing both at the same time.

    Re:EVGA X58 Motherboards - BIOS 74 Released 2010/07/11 15:04:29 (permalink)
    On the 2nd of July, I burned to CD the bios 73 update to my X58 SLI, that I found posted on this forum, so that I could stay current, and take advantage of higher speeds for my memory chips, however, after flashing my BIOS, and then loading defaults, I can no longer enter my BIOS by pressing the delete key...What happened? It worked before....I'm new to the whole overlcocking thing, and thought that starting with upgrading my BIOS would be the first place to start.  I also cleared the CMOS, after the flash...
    07/12/2010  Figured it out, I think...I think I forgot to shut off power supply, before clearing the CMOS...I unplugged it from the wall, waited a few minutes, then hit the clear CMOS button...After power up, I still had some problems with it accepting the "delete" key, but I noticed that if I waited until the I got the second flashing text, " detecting drives, no drives found", then immediately after this second line of text, hit the "delete" button,  i was able to get into my BIOS every time...Strange, don't remember it doing that before.....

    This has reach the point of being absurd! All I see is updates for the $1000 980x! How about the rest of us 90%? Some fixes for the major problems plaguing this board, maybe?


    I used to respect EVGA but seeing as we can't even get any feedback or an admition to there being a problem with the way VT was implemented on this board, I definitely do not anymore.


    I',m pretty sure someone will have some lamo response to turn of VT, so here is a preemptive reply to them, I cannot, as I use the feature all the time. 

    I am in the market for a new Video Card but seeing as I have just lost yet another Hard Drive due to this VT Bug which by the way no other x58 chipset motherboard has. This will definitely be the last Product I buy from EVGA Period! I will also be telling everyone I know not to purchase anything from this company!


    This damned bug has now cost me almost $300. I am mad as hell.



    It is really bad that I didn't notice this VT bug until I have got nearly 300 unsafe shutdown counts from each of my 3 hard drives!

    Hope someone can assist me with this. I just assembled my system and before loading the OS, decided to update the BIOS to this one. I have an external floppy drive, so I used E758_74.exe to update the BIOS. The floppy works...it gets to "Starting Caldera DR-DOS..." and a flashing line...but that is where the system stays....nothing more and the floppy drive is not being read.  Any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?
