Still impressive.
I kept the L5430 as I don`t like changing cpus a lot. I have changed quite a few times the cpu in this mobo, I don`t want to stress the socket pins.
I don`t know about the Striker but after having more than 10 Xeons I know that not all grapes are the same.
Some pieces are better than other.
Start with a safe and wise move, choosing the right model it covers your needs.
You get what you paid for.
X5450, E5462, E5472, are -or should be- cheaper as they are inferior to E5450, E5440

Well, not all cases are the same. So a E5472 is an excellent choice for one who does not overclock.
It is time you get a decent system then.
A SILENT one.
With your L5430 you should run almost fanless.
My E5450 4Ghz 1.176V runs on a Zalman CNPS-10X Optima at lowest fan speed. While an X5450 4Ghz 1.325V needed a lot of rpm.
As long as you don`t want to get the max of a cpu then it will be a very easy thing to achieve with a Xeon, system be Silent.


All you need to remember is for 5400 series, any of them, you need those:
cpu00010676_plat00000040_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin
cpu00010676_plat00000004_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin
cpu0001067a_plat00000044_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin

Hey thanks for the info. Do you know what the different platform codes represent?

Having some issues trying to insert the microcodes into the latest 0901 Bios for the Asus Striker II NSE. I have a modded one that was kindly posted on this forum, but wanted to do it myself and replicate what had been done. I followed the guides to the letter but I cannot get any of the codes added even though no errors from CBROM etc.

Cheers

I just replicated the award mod bios procedure using cbrom195 and it seems it works on the 0901 bios of the Asus Striker II NSE.

You can compare the bios you already have to this one. If the same procedure was involved then I think both bioses must have the same checksum. So then you`ll know if something different was modified or not.
Use md5 http://www.nero.com/eng/support/service/md5-checksum.php

Thanks for this. I cannot get this to work at all. Maybe its because I am using a Windows 7 VM install. I don't have a physical install. I can't see why that would be the case, but can't really see any other logical conclusion!

I am using this process http://www.overclock.net/t/1431723/mod-lga775-support-for-lga771-xeon-cpus/860#post_21383296

I have all the files in the same directory so no path issues etc. The commands all work perfectly and suggest that everything worked perfectly, the codes are added to ncpucode.bin. However after running the final

F:\Xeon>cbrom195.exe 0901.BIN /nc_cpucode NCPUCODE.BIN

afterwards the BIOS shows no additional Microcodes added. The last three being the key ones.

Any suggestions as to why this process would not work on a VM?

Just an update on flashing BIOS/Firmware using Linux: I am using Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS

I flashed the modified Asus Striker II NSE 0901 bios directly using Linux flashrom utility. Makes the process trivial. http://flashrom.org/Flashrom

Was as simple as

sudo apt-get install flashrom

sudo flashrom -h

Display Flashrom help

sudo flashrom --verbose

Probes the motherboard for BIOS controller chip and reports findings.

sudo flashrom --verbose -r oldbios.bin

Reads and saves the current BIOS to a file

sudo flashrom --verbose -v oldbios.bin

Verifies the current BIOS with the file oldbios.bin

sudo flashrom --verbose -w newbios.bin

Writes and verifies new BIOS to Flash Rom

sudo flashrom --verbose -v newbios.bin

And finally for sanity checking verifies the current BIOS with the file newbios.bin

Awesome tool. So simple compared to messing about with DOS USB sticks etc.

Obviously if it does not find a valid flash controller that it understands you can use the traditional methods.

Hope other users find this helpful.

Cheers
Spart

Anybody notice any power savings with the L5420 or other 50w Xeons? Compared to my Q8300 with a Kill-A-Watt, the power savings are negligible.

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L v1.0 F9 BIOS Settings with Xeon microcode added.
(4) 2gb DDR2 800 dimms, GeForce GT610 video card.
SSE4.1 and VT-x extensions are seen in CPU-Z after BIOS modded.

CPUs:
2.5ghz L5420 50w tdp
2.5ghz Q8300 95w tdp

77w idle / 141w prime95 L5420
77w idle / 150w prime95 Q8300

77w idle / 150w prime95 Q8300

Well, TDP has been misinterpreted.
TDP stands for Thermal Design Power and has no direct relation to actual power consumption.
TDP is a kind of power efficiency class. So you can know if your mobo supports this class and what heatsink you should be using.
A 80W TDP E5410 E0 with a 80W TDP E5450 C0 for example belong to the same TDP, the same class. But will not consume the same.
A 80W TDP cpu can consume as little as 55W, up to 80W or a little more (than 80W) as TDP stands for the thermal (output) design.

Your Q8300 is a low end model, with little cache, the 1/3 of the L5420.
Also it runs at the same Mhz as the L5420.
So it should consume about the same or a little less. But as it is a low end model it consumes more, as lower quality chips are set to run at higher VID.

Vcore has direct affection to actual power consumption.
Vcore has direct affection to actual heat dissipation.
Vcore has direct affection to actual heatsink requirement, thus relation to noise output.

You can see here my measurements.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1427554/official-775-to-771-mod-club/140#post_21826783

I take very seriously the power consumption, the heat dissipation and the noise level.
A LOT more than overclocking.
Overclocking is an easy thing, the real thing is to have a fast system that does not consume, does not heat up the room so to need airconditioning, and does not make you headache out of noisy environment.
This is a success, not just fancy Mhz screenshots and pointless benchmarks so to feel better


This is the reason I don`t favor much the X series.
This the reason I don`t OC with lots of Vcore and I appreciate finding a good piece of a cpu that can be fast but with low Vcore.
Well, I also don`t OC with high Vcore not to degrade the cpu, the motherboard and the PSU in addition, that`s another serious reason.

So...
Undervolt your L5420. wink.gif

See if your L5420 can do under 1.000V

My L5420 C0 did this:

Look at the uptime. wink.gif
Even though it is a C0 it is a very good piece of L5420s


My E5440 E0



Soon I`ll test some E0 E5450s

Hello!
I have the same problem like sparticle.

I am using this process http://www.overclock.net/t/1431723/mod-lga775-support-for-lga771-xeon-cpus/860#post_21383296

I have all the files in the same directory so no path issues etc. The commands all work perfectly and suggest that everything worked perfectly, the codes are added to ncpucode.bin. However after running the final instruction

cbrom195.exe 0901.BIN /nc_cpucode NCPUCODE.BIN

afterwards the BIOS shows no additional Microcodes added. The last three being the key ones.
All commands I paste from instruction to Total Commander. I tried on Windows XP and 7, on partition FAT and NTSF - the same results.

Please for any suggestions as to why this process doesn't work for me?

I have EVGA 680i SLI ver. AR motherboard. Bios NF68_P33 is from http://forums.evga.com/tm.aspx?m=718378.

Mayby Somebody can help me or send me modified bios NF68_P33 for EVGA, Please.

I got an error of larger size that can fitted into this bios.
"NF68_P33.BIN have not enough space for adding ROM. (Over 3A78h bytes) "
So I used another good working NCPUCODE.BIN that has integrated Xeon 5400 microcodes.
It should work OK but use at your own risk as this NCPUCODE.BIN comes from a gigabyte modded bios.
