Cheers guys, sorry i haven't got anything better to offer you :(
My apologies to all hoping to see a bit of a mod update but i’ve had a few teething problems with the SR-X board – nothing major but as there is very little info out there at this point it was a little trial and error which is very quite time consuming but got their in the end and just want to update the thread as it may help others in the future.
Here’s the shortened version - the week started off great with a nice package from Intel landing early Monday in the shape of a couple of retail Xeon E5 2687W CPU’s so i set about getting the system up and running on the bench, air cooled so installed a GTX295 dual PCB graphics card and managed to get a fresh install of W7 but immediately ran into problems with BSOD.
Tried as i might to get it to run stable that night, it wasn’t to be so was well happy when i woke the next morning to find a new BIOS had been released for the board but the happiness didn’t last long as once the new BIOS was flashed i wasn’t able to get a signal to the monitor.
The SR-X comes with a three way switch to load separate BIOS’s so decided to risk another and flashed the second with the new BIOS which led to the same problem.
Looking back now I’m wondering to myself why i didn’t swap the graphics card out but it really didn’t cross my mind at the time and it was only when another guy posted similar problems with a GTX690 on the EVGA forum that the penny sort of dropped.
Both of us were using dual CPU graphics cards so swapped my 295 out and replaced it with a GTX7800 (stop laughing) and BINGO, working fine and BSOD had been fixed with the new BIOS so all working champion and i can now get on to running a few benchmarks but more to the point, get on with making the case look pretty.
Sorry for the long winded post which probably doesn’t mean a lot to most but you never know who’s searching Google – full original thread here - EVGA SR-X - BIOS 013 Released
Oh the other good news was that a second EVGA GTX680 Hydro Copper arrived so couldn’t resist getting a few photo’s of that fitted to the board.
Anyway, a few pictures.....
stop laughing at my GTX7800 hehehehehehe
