Xeon Phi compatiblity with CPU and chipsets

Is Xeon Phi 5110P compatible with asus p9d-x C222 chipset and E3 1220l-v3 CPU?

The Asus P9d-X mother board has the function on "Above 4G decoding" option., the chipsets is C222.

And I am going to install an E3 1220L v3 or G3258 on that chip.

Can they work together?

and is there any instruction and details on this kind of set up?

Thanks a lot guys. There is so little data about them.

We understand that sometimes the information on compatibility is hard to find; I was checking on Asus website and the Xeon phi co-processor does not show as a supported processor for this board.

 

 

You can check the information from the manufacturer https://www.asus.com/Commercial-Servers-Workstations/P9DX/HelpDesk_CPU/ here

 

 

In order to be able to make the Xeon Phi work in our server boards, the following settings need to be trigger:

 

  1. BIOS settings to trigger:
    1. 1. The following should be disabled:
  • Virtualization; this is found within the "Processor Configuration" section, under Advance menu.
  • Hyperthreading; this, too, is found within the "Processor Configuration" section.
  • Onboard, software RAID; if you rather have a hardware RAID controller card, then, disregard. Needless to say, if you rather configured your system with onboard RAID, please, back up your data before disabling this.
  • All PXE options within NIC configuration
  1. 2. The following should be enabled:
  • 'Maximize Memory below 4GB.' if your system has less than 4GB.; otherwise, disable this one.
  • 'Memory Mapped I/O above 4GB.'
  • Make sure the 'Memory Mapped I/O Size' is set to 256G
I was checking even in the http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket1150/P9D-X/Manual&AVL/E7959_P9D-X_for_web.pdf?_ga=1.264530... Asus motherboard manual an it seems that it does not have similar settings to make it work.

 

 

I may want to double check if you really need this co-processor for your purposes https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/is-intelr-xeon-phitm-coprocessor-right-for-you Here

 

 

In this case the next course of action would be checking with the manufacturer to see if they have further information to provide you.
