I got my P5N-E SLI Working!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter

So I had some spare time today and figured I would try and see if I could get this motherboard working. Previously it wasn't booting, but I realise now it was because the E5700 was not supported by the old bios. I ended up buying a G41 Asus motherboard because I didn't think to update the bios.

Now I don't know what to do with it. Should I keep it as a backup? Take my E5700 out of my server rig and try overclocking it? Or should I offer it to my friend who has an E5600 in an old HP prebuilt and let him have a taste of overclocking?

I'm not sure I want to go out and buy another 775 CPU at this point in time, and I don't have other spare parts to use it as a full PC.

In any case, this was my first real gamers motherboard and my first Intel PC. I believe I bought my Q6600 along with this.

I guess it would be wise considering I have 3 LGA775 based computers in the house. It's getting harder and harder to find LGA775 parts, I'm surprised it sold as long as it did though. I bought that E5700 only a couple months ago.
