JGINYUE X99-D8 Dual CPU Motherboard BIOS Features

I recently bought a JGINYUE X99-D8 to use with my home lab. However before I bought it I couldn’t find much info about it, such as if it it supported SR-IOV or even virtualisation at all. Here’s all the BIOS options that shipped with my motherboard.

BIOS Dump using flashrom; flashrom shows this chipset as untested, this rom might brick your motherboard.

I’ve also made a custom lm-sensors config file for this motherboard.

All of this article is my own findings but Miyconst’s video is worth checking out.

Important Features & Notes

AER Errors

If you experience AER errors in Linux, they can be avoided by disabling PCI-E ASPM, you will need to disable it globally and then go through each IIO Socket setting PCI-E ASPM to Disabled. This is common with other X99 motherboards.

Virtualisation
  • SR-IOV
  • VT-x
  • VT-d
  • ACS
  • ARI Forwarding
Networking
  • 2 × RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controllers
  • Capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix bus_master cap_list ethernet physical tp mii 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd 1000bt-fd autonegotiation
  • Supports Wake-on: pumbg (PHY, Unicast, Multicast, Broadcast, Magic Packet)
PCIe Slots
  • PCIe 2.0 x1 - Chipset
  • PCIe 3.0 x4 (M.2 M Key) - CPU0
  • PCIe 3.0 x16 - CPU0
  • PCIe 2.0 x1 - Chipset
  • PCIe 3.0 x4 (M.2 M Key) - CPU1
  • PCIe 3.0 x16 - CPU1
  • PCIe 3.0 x8 (Physically x16) - CPU0

The PCIe x1 slots can easily be cut open using small side cutters to fit a card bigger than x1, but using a bigger card will obstruct an M.2 SSD.

Miscellaneous
  • SATA 3.0, using SATA & sSATA Controllers
  • 8 Channel RAM (2 CPUs × 4 Channels)
  • ECC & Non-ECC RAM Supported
