#1 Gigabyte ep35c-ds3r by jurekkksz 14.10.2018 11:52

success
(Sorry for my English ;-) )

I used as a basic F5b bios with Xeon microcodies, from: http://genius239239.myweb.hinet.net/771/
@genius239 ;-) ?
added:
RAID ROM v11.2.0.1527
JMB36x RAID ROM v1.0.8.01

using the hex editor, using the trick with the file dumny.dum

at the end, the SBF module was substituted for the new module to improve the checksums.

I could not replace the rtegrom.lom file. I needed to move the dbios.bmp file for this but no success.

I do not know if the trim is active - trimcheck says it's not, but maybe it's the effect of having two different SSD drives 32 gb no name ;-)

two SSD is not a problem, that is OK. Do you have your SSD's connected to the Intel HDD ports (Yellow/Orange)? Are the SSD's in RAID? If yes, did you use RAID ROM with "TRIM mod support" added?

#3 RE: Gigabyte ep35c-ds3r by jurekkksz 15.10.2018 19:06

I'm just so, hobbistically.
maybe because they different it shows that the trim does not work

Third image is too blurry to see anything?

When you modified BIOS, did you put in "TRIM modified" rom, or stock one? You need to download from red link from this page, not the blue link
AHCI & RAID ROM Modules

This direct link to TRIM modified rom ("Universally TRIM modified" Intel RST RAID ROM v11.2.0.1527 with TRIM in RAID0 support)
https://mega.nz/#!EctDhA6B!sFVc9udxju3Ef...vU1b7oy0gYGLNFc

Also, you did not reply about the SATA Ports on the motherboard. Make sure the SSD"s are both connect to the orange ports, not the purple ports

#6 RE: Gigabyte ep35c-ds3r by jurekkksz 16.10.2018 08:34

tahank you :-) haha no so blue, I have to correct the image ;-), in a few days I can do it, the construction of the appropriate file dummy.dum is time-consuming
good, that I wrote ;-) thanks again

So that was problem? You were not using the RAID TRIM Mod file? I thought maybe that was it, good catch for the both of us, hopefully once you put in correct module all will be working properly!

RAID Rom file is (Should be) exact same size, so maybe you can direct hex edit, replace, then to correct checksum open BIOS in cbrom and extract/replace last module or some module under sensitive ones. That way you don't have to do the hard work method again.

I can not trimcheck to detect the trim (I have two different ssd, two different manufacturers) - I will try another method

EDIT:
this motherboard always got up but in memory ddr2 its controller is stitched probably in bootblock. I use 8 gb ddr3 on a daily basis (this motherboard has support for ddr2 and ddr3)
I'm just begging you that other Gigabyte motherboards for ddr2 and ddr3 support are similar.
If you do not want to run with ddr3, let's get this memory out and put in ddr2, do the reflash of the bios and after the trouble

EDIT by Fernando: BIOS Details put into "spoilers" and the last 2 posts merged (to save space and for better readability)

Two different SSD should not matter? Set a stripe and test, once an array is made the OS only sees it as one larger drive.

I don't know what you are asking about when you mentioned DDR2 and DDR3, either should be OK but you may need to tweak DDR3 settings more than DDR2 (Since DDR3 memory was probably not designed for this chipset, so default SPD/XMP timings may be too tight)

#10 RE: Gigabyte ep35c-ds3r by jurekkksz 19.10.2018 18:10

I do not ask for memory ddr2 and ddr3 just as if someone had a problem with my mod bios, black screen ;-), inserting the memory ddr2 allows you to run the bios anyway, multifaceted my modification I saw a black screen and inserting ddr2 instead of ddr3 saved me.
I did another mod with Intel RST RAID ROM v11.2.0.1527, because the one is faster about 1% from Intel RST (e) RAID ROM v12.9.0.2006 on this motherboard.
while the older module JMicron JMB36x RAID ROM v1.0.7.28 for DEV_2363 is probably better for the motherboard.

I did not take away the lan rom because it has a module that is sensitive to shifting, I tried to move dbios.bmp but besides, to make room for a larger lan rom, the output would be a cut-out, oem logo.
Replacing lan rom unless no will speed up the network card anyway?

I would be grateful if someone who has such a motherboard would confirm the action of the trim on it

So that comment was to another post, before thread was moved/combined, about DDR2/DDR3 I mean?
No, LAN rom isn't going to speed up the LAN speeds, unless maybe some major bug in the version you are using now. It just would help fix issues possibly, like bug fixes that were reported, or maybe some small setting adjustment etc.

Hi @jurekkksz
I have had same problem with GA EP35C-DS3R rev.2.1 and DDR3.
With original or modded BIOS, it makes no difference, DDR3 doesn't work.
And also changing voltages in BIOS had no effect, after restart there was all back to default.
Could be board, could be BIOS - I don't know ...

Your modded bios-file looks good. MEMINIT.BIN & PPMINIT.ROM are at the same address/position.
Microcodes seams to be proper installed. dummy.dum ... is very nice work!
If the checksum is something like "XX00" (with "00" at the end), then you could try it.

How did you create/manage the correct size & compressed size for dummy.dum?
Best regards, MiMo

#13 RE: Gigabyte ep35c-ds3r by jurekkksz 20.10.2018 14:18

I immediately tried when I cooked the bios ;-), I did a lot of worrying work,I had bad luck, but as written at the top, this motherboard , that she gets up on the ddr2 bones always and then reflash and after troubles.

I made a dummy.dum method of errors and probes, I cut a file in the hex editor and threw it into the rom until the file reached the appropriate size after compressing and then cut its code in the hex editor and put in the right place.
It's a tedious job, but if you have the skill it's relatively easy.
I did not look at the checksums, according to information from Fernando and other experts, cbrom fixes the checksums, something should be uploaded some small file and then it should be deleted and the cbrom will fix the checksums
I saw a colleague @aaaaaa889 applies the "OEM modfix for the Bios Award" the right tool for this but I could not get it from the Chinese sites.
(a similar module has the Andy Award_Tool_1.37 program for the "slic 2.1" broadcast, I saw it in action ;-), aligned, counted, the number of bytes in the module (I think) acpitbl.bin and did not damage the bios ;-)) I did this only for tests, the mod included by me does not have a slic table 2.1

As for the memory of ddr3 it is great - I emphasized my Xeon l5408 test to the 1600 bus and multiplier 7.5 without any problem - I go to the bus 1333 and multiplier 6 for me only a typewriter because I do not like laptops ;-)
bus 1600 and the multiplier of 8 he froze you would have to raise the processor voltage, I did not try because it's just a typewriter for me and a computer for the internet and it's all about taking a little power and being strong

the memory must be so-called double-sided, I used to have asrock g41m-s3( but the capacitor was swollen, so the processor and memory were used for the ep35c-ds3r) and for him I bought it with memory so a few did not fit, it must be more expensive double-sided mem.
your problem with memory is not the problem of bios but the type of memory
I have 2x 4 GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM Wilk Elektronik GY1600D364L9/4G
Are still selling motherboards with g41 and g43 chips and ddr3 see what memories they recommend to them and see if they are available in your country, they should work for you e.g:
https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/so...-Memory-QVL.pdf
Although they recommend ddr3 1333, and the point is to ddr3 with the native main bus 1600 use and there are such are double sided, what you have an example with my
