[MOD] LGA775 Support For LGA771 Xeon CPUs - Page 1011

post #10101 of 12463
EDIT: I will try to update microcode tomorrow.
EDIT 2: Didn't work.

Guys, I need you help so much. I have a problem. Let me tell you. First my specs:

Core2 Duo E4600 + Foxconn G31MXP + DDR2 2GB 667MHz RAM

I think that's enough. My problem is when I attach the Xeon E5450, my PC won't boot at all. Fans turns and stop. Nothing happen. But everything is okay with E4600.

Then I tried E5450 on Gigabyte GA-G41M-Combo with same parts, I mean RAM, GPU, PSU are same. And it worked. So I need your help.

My BIOS is updated? Yes. It's latest version, 861F1P08, just updated it.
My PSU isn't enough? My PSU worked with GA-G41M-Combo.
My RAMs has any problem? Worked with GA-G41M-Combo
My GPU? Aame. Worked at all.
My Foxconn have any problem with old CPU? No frown.gif

I have no idea what to do. I would be very thankful if you help me. Thank you for reading my story.

EDIT: I will try to update microcode tomorrow.
EDIT 2: Didn't work.

Turn it around so you are cutting towards yourself or whatever feels comfortable. Get a pair of those magnifying glasses if you're eyesight isn't good (great for applying the sticker to the CPU).
Use a sharp utility knife with a blade that doesn't flex. One of those with double ended replaceable blades. We call them Stanley knives. I think this point is important.
Then line up the tab and apply firm but even pressure downwards rather than using a cutting motion. Tab should come off fairly easily.
Get rid of the piece you've just cut off then check to see whether any part of the tab remains. If so trim it back.
Whatever you do don't rush it. You've got all day. Try to keep cutting motion to a minimum and make sure you keep the blade vertical and apply pressure downwards or outwards towards the edge of the socket - never towards the pins. That way if you slip the pins are not in danger.
Then rotate the board and do the other side.
When you're done try the CPU for fit. It should drop in easily without any obstruction.
Job done!


Thanks for the advice. I was going to use a pair of nail clippers in there and then tidy it with a Stanley knife. Unfortunately, it's difficult to find the strong-box cutter types (that you pictured) hence the nail-clippers first.

On the day of the mod, I'll take a look at the board and figure out which way will work best.

Home depot,Lowes, hardware stores,walmart in some places carry them. they're also known as carpet knives,& box cutters.Became harder to find them after 9/11.

Some thoughts,Did you CLEAR the CMOS before attempting to start with the xeon?, Ram,is it 1x2Gb or 2x1Gb? If 2x1Gb, try getting it to post with just ONE stick installed,try different sticks in different slots.GPU,on-board or discreate? ALSO,sometimes just re-seating the xeon can make a difference.(the pins have to line up with the holes in the adaptor,if a hair crooked,the pin doesn't make contact)

Try flashing this BIOS with the correct microcodes added and see if it makes any difference? Also as @schuck said clear CMOS and set to defaults before booting with new CPU, then once you are up and running boot into Windows with optomized settings before going any further.
Also I make note of the fact your board supports up to 800Mhz memory so that is going to limit your overclock. If you are lucky you might get 900 out of it (2x450) which will give you an OC of 4.Ghz (9x450).

Guys, I did everything you said already. I just found that I have missing mosfet capasitor on my motherboard. I dont know it's the reason of the problem but I gave up already. I'm gonna sell this and buy another second hand mobo.

Seems several people had capacitor issues with those boards... ---> http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/697324-FOXCONN-G31-MXP-capacitor-replacement rolleyes.gif

By the way I checked other G31MXP boards, the mosfet that I mentioned wasn't on another motherboards. So there is no component difference. I have no problem with my mobo. Totally no problem. But I gave up already im gonna sell this and buy another mobo. I'm tired of that.

Hello yet again

just a question that has been irking me bit after dealing with getting the xeon ot work(it does for most part)

it's the following:

both single and multi tread performance are where they should imo however the cpu seems ot struggle in mantaining that performance after some time in load, most noticeably according tothe owner of the system) during games ( where the framerate seems to drop after a fewm inutes of gameplay and the gpu is more than capable ) and benchmarking(notably the cpu Z test where its own stress test stuggles ot mantain a consistent score where it occasionally dips ot under 1000)


checking device manager greets one with this




notice the status of the cpu, no clue if its related :\

the property windows gives out a code 32

"Foi desativado um controlador (serviço) para este dispositivo. Um controlador alternativo pode fornecer esta funcionalidade. (Código 32)"
(roughly translates to :a controller(service) has been disabled for this device, an alternate controller may provide this functionality(code 32)

bit clueless at what function may be missing hereand/or if its affecting or causing the issue.

EDIT:a note Getting the xeon to work properly at 1st invovled a registry change in the Hkey_local_machine/system/currentcontrolset/services/intelppm in the Start entry(that had a default of 3 and had ot be changed ot 4, intel ppm for what i can tell relates to the intel's power managenemt shannanigans but having it on defautl crippled the cpu)

Ok, did you try downloading xeon drivers from intel's web site? Also,the drops can be caused by ram also.I encountered smoother frame rates when I swapped my mixxed pc6400 ram for matched ram @ 1066MHz. Even with every thing else set the same, the better ram gave better OVERALL performance. I was using the SAME amount (8Gb) of the 800MHz ram but they were mixxed makes(2x2Gb of 2 makes),& before THAT,I had all mixxed of three makes and couldn't even get a stable overclock! Many things can play a part in performance,not just the cpu.Did U try upping the voltage to the northbridge,southbridge,& ram by any chance? or are you still using stock voltages on those also? It's called tweaking for a reason. thumb.gif to keep the 5000+ in the multi core test,I had to close GOG,Steam,and EVGA's card controler.WITH all those,it was pushing low 4000's dropping into upper 3000's.
