Well a few weeks back got done setting up back my old setup on my old case, and this is my X99 Deluxe II motherboard w/ my Xeon E5 2696V4 and My new on me but an old Vega64 water-cooled Graphics. My system is working ok at less she is working and acting like a Mac, it could be tweak event better but this is as far I can go. Here are some GB4- results:

Just want to make sure my bios X99D2 is unlocked properly for kernel write
is this correct?

OK!!!!! Got it!!!!
I did exactly as described by @dMatik in the post: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-extend-the-imac-pro-to-x99-successful-build-extended-guide.227001/post-1901572 THANK YOU!!!!

I know it was based on X99 Deluxe and I have X99 DeluxeII but nvram from z170Deluxe did the trick, I have no idea if this is the right solution and the only one but it did the trick and I have native nvram working from now!
By any meaning, I am not encouraging anyone to go that path.

Attaching my modded bios for X99 DELUXE II ONLY with microcodes updated, imac pro splash screen, nvram write unlocked!

Use only if you have no other option and on your own responsibility. Thanks

I guess you confuse nvram with MSR unlock for kernel write.

I guess you confuse nvram with MSR unlock for kernel write.
Ok so now you got me! I feel ashamed, I was completely sure it was related!
so anyway, the attached bios include everything from @kgp tutorial + native nvram from @dMatik post.
Thanks very much guys!!!!

My success trick on those benchmark its not a secret its just to follow the instructions on how to update the microcode of your Bios as well the MSR patch guide from this thread. Also testing the best combination in Bios as well the water cooling of the system. Also your ram kit, but cute me on that. I just have a believe feeling that the combination of both my Xeon likes the truely SPD natively from this RAM kit. I have a 128GB kit 2800mhz and the xeon dont like that kit event setting them up on 2400mhz speed and relaxing the timming to auto the xeon on benchmarks dont perform as good as with this kit. I havent test yet but I also heard if you deactivate the AVX on Bios you do get better performance. All I want now is to have a real good DSDt file for my system and have my peripherals display properly on system and call out, until Apples comes out w/ a new SMBIOS for the Xtreme series so I will update, but as of right now Im trailing the new CPUs out there. Next proyect that I got is to tray again the Thunderbolt w/ the Gigabyte card and a Monitor
