Good news for the LGA775 ! now 771 is available to convert to 775 motherboard - Page 42

post #411 of 737
Hi guys

First post but in very important topic tongue.gif

I am already waiting for my Xeon 5420 ofcourse my mobo is 775 and the question is should it works with ASUS P5G41T-M SI (great mobo I know..) or needed is to upgrade something in the BIOS?
Also is really hard to find in Poland adapter but as I see adapter is nothing else as a separator so there can be a small piece of tape or something just to disconnect that two pins.

In Poland 5420 cost about 90zł = 29$ so it's quite similar

Should he grab this? Looks like a good deal to me. Any OC headroom with this board?

Great thread! I discovered this mod by accident the other day, and thought I'd give it a go. I was wondering if K7Raid, or anyone else, had any luck with the DQ45EK or other Q45 Chipset boards? I got a DQ45EK to make a low power/heat general purpose machine for my tiny home office (my old Q6600 heats it up like a furnace even with the OC off). I was resigned to an anemic CPU, but a L5240 at 40w TDP would do quite nicely. And only $10 or so on eBay.

I want to say somebody has successfully modded a P965 board here. IIRC it was g3p0 but I could be mistaken and it may have been a 65nm Xeon. You may want to look into it in either this thread or the [MOD] thread. Where I'm going with this is you may have two separate problems. Your sticker may be bad, I hope you have more than one or your venture may not work out as you want. In my experience, you will get some sort of error if you put in an unsupported CPU. Either a beep code or a message on the boot screen telling you "unsupported CPU" or similar. If you are getting a black screen, your system isn't posting and you may have a bad sticker. If this is the case buying a new CPU won't help you and will only add to your frustration. Look at the link, post 875 for some advice, just keep in mind it isn't intended for your chipset.

No post on DQ45EK frown.gif tested a known good cpu (L5420), then re-tested with an e8500.

For that price, I think I would grab the qx6700. I have never tried OC'ing on an Intel board.

It is not a separator, it is actually a pin swap, There are people who have done this mod without the adapter, I cannot seem to find where it was. I had and asus g41 post, and if I recall it worked fine with an e5440, and posted with a l5420, with no sse4 support. I did not take the time to do a microcode update, I just rolled it out with the e5440 as it was fully supported .

I don't know who said what but I have a modded 965p. Check my sig. All I did was use the latest bios. I do need the microcode but it does work. Just missing sse4.

OK I knew somebody here had done it, just fuzzy on who. At least I remembered that. So a 1333 FSB CPU will work on this chipset. If I remember correctly, the chipset is an excellent overclocker in the right hands, too bad his is an Intel board. It sounds to me like the issue kbros has is the sticker then.

An Intel branded board isn't going to let you overclock, they are very limited. They are like an OEM board in an HP, Dell etc. You will need to use a third party app like Set FSB with no voltage control and hope for the best. Though a BSEL mod may do the trick to get started.

Thanks for the update. Looks like the Intel Board is getting an old low voltage single core thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif. I have a Zotac 630i not in use though, so I think I'll still give it a go. 630i chipset seems to work fine http://www.overclock.net/t/1431723/mod-lga775-support-for-lga771-xeon-cpus/20#post_21001112
