    eVc ordering

    It's not always the same, but what I've seen the most and what the evc uses is: 1 - GND (square) 2 - SDA 3 - SCL

    First test from the factory test video.mp4

    eVc ordering

    Yes, sorry things are going slowly. A very limited number of samples have gone out for development testing. Also got the first pictures from the factory where I've ordered an initial batch. Unfortunately they messed some things up and will delay this another week or so while they produce a new PCB. Here it is in action: https://youtu.be/Fbw1CZp-GNE?t=381 Quick specs: - 3x I2C headers working at 3.3-5.0V - 1x UART header, TX 3.3V RX 3.3-5.0V - 1x SPI header 0.8-3.6V with on-board controllable LDO for feeding power - VMOD header which is essentially the same as ROG Hotwire (sense and modify the feedback circuit of a voltage controller) - Built-in USB bootloader for firmware upgrades (essentially unbrickable) - Micro-USB cable for connecting to the PC Bundled: - 3-pin 2.54mm to 3-pin 2.54mm 40cm cable (I2C/UART) - 2x 3-pin 2.54mm to open end cable (I2C/UART) - 2x 2-pin 2.54mm to open end cable (VMOD) - 1x 1-pin 2.54mm to open end cable (Ground) - SPI cable for Asus motherboards - SPI cable for MSI motherboards - SPI cable for Asrock motherboards (SOIC8 test clip can be bought separately for Gigabyte boards, they don't have headers for flashing) Additional info: - I2C1 supports I2C listening/sniffing to figure out what's being sent on the bus it's connected to, which is very useful for figuring out how to talk to undocumented ICs - I2C3 supports SSD1306 128x64px I2C OLED displays as seen in Roman's video for displaying various information (optional add-on) - The SPI header is targeted for external BIOS flashing. Can be very useful for flashing mod-BIOSes or recovery. Can also be used to update the EC firmware on some boards.

    A little bit of progress, this is already quite a few revisions in...
  6. I replaced some of the ACPI tables with tables from M9A, after adding ACPI support for up to 16 threads using the methods described at the win-raid forum. IIRC only DSDT and SSDT were replaced.

    Hardware design is pretty much done, firmware and software have basic functionality. The earliest I could have something close to final would be end of January.
  8. Boot performance mode = Turbo performance should fix ratio issues
  9. BIOS 1704 modified for Windows XP ACPI support https://1drv.ms/u/s!Atmpv-6qHr_6o9hDCg_c2HDTGFUr7g Rename to M10A.CAP and flash using USB BIOS Flashback. Using EZFlash will not work. Edit: Set Boot Performance Mode = Turbo Performance to be able to change ratio in the OS
  10. M10A BIOS 0020 with higher voltage limits without LN2 Mode (based on 1003): http://www.mediafire.com/file/kzsxh3lerkn1u5w/ROG-MAXIMUS-X-APEX-ASUS-0020.zip With this BIOS you can adjust bclk using OC Panel without ROG Connect Plus installed. DRAM Frequency benching instructions from Shamino: Download the profiles here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/f2ex0bv30h2gahv/DRAM_Frequency.zip
  11. New try Use latest official BIOS. There's nothing new in terms of LN2 overclocking, rely on your previous experiences and the M8/M9 guides. OCPack 1003b (includes TurboV Core, MemTweakIt, ROG Connect Plus, OC Panel II FW)
