This Xeon was running fine on my P5Q3 Deluxe (all AUTO with C1E and SpeedStep Enabled), but he told me that he is experiencing BSODs and it is unstable. Any ideas? So far I told him to turn off C1E and SpeedStep and I'm waiting for his response. Ofc, bios patched with microcodes.

As Arxontas said memory is more likely the culprit.
Tell him to run memtest86+ for at least 10 cycles. There`s a bootable USB stick version in the memtest86+ download section.

There are a few more.
Tell him to write down the bios settings, especially SATA configured as AHCI/RAID/IDE, first boot device, disabled onboard devices, etc.
Then load setup defaults, save and exit.
Then and without having got into windows, immediately as soon as mobo POSTs, go into bios and set SATA configured as AHCI/RAID/IDE, first boot device and he makes sure he enables the ACPI 2.0 Support that is disabled by default.
Having upgrading to a bios does not mean the motherboard runs at fresh settings. Always do a load setup defaults. Preferably before changing the cpu and right afterwards.

Then there is the thermal paste / heatsink. Especially if he uses a stock Intel heatsink the locking rods may not have locked. Or he has not used new thermal paste or uses a 45nm Dual Core heatsink.

He makes sure he has plugged the EPS+12V 4pin.

Windows XP and windows Vista users should go to the device manager, uninstall all processors then reboot. Of course the OS must be updated.

He must try a Linux Live DVD so he makes sure his windows installation is in good shape and is not making the problem.

If still fails then he must check the socket tabs, may not be clear enough and/or for bent socket pins.

@Arxontas & patentman
Here is additional info on situation with X5482

His setup:
RAM: G.Skill F2-8800CL5 (he claimed they are running @800)
PSU: Be Quiet 850W

I have sent him an instruction on this modification and one step is to write down BIOS settings with special attention to SATA configuration (AHCI/IDE/RAID). But I have no way to confirm if he followed it.


And this is exactly what he written me the first time:

Flashed Bios on c2d, it went good, mobo working fine with c2d (I think he has E8500). Than intalled Xeon and loaded bios defaults. Started windows everything seemed o.k.. Than OS (win 7) started driver installation for new CPU and BSOD occurred. After reboot BSODS when Windows was starting. Than he thought that this is problem with old system and installed a new one on another drive. But the installation hanged on white progress bar.

Than he switched to c2d and send me a message asking for help.

My reply:

Please load default Bios settings again and check if everything is as it should be. If that doesn't help try turning off the following settings:
C1E
SpeedStep
intel C-State
Load-Line Calibration (I had problems with this enabled)

AI clock twister set on lighter


If this doesn't help try lowering cpu speed. Set FSB on 333 (1333 effective). There is also a possibility that CPU requires a little more voltage than mobo is loading. Try 1,160-1,3V (I had it on 1,16 on AUTO). It may be a RAM related problem - try different divider, lowering frequency, loosening the timings and setting higher voltage. Than I asked for his PC setup.


I will tell him to run memtest from usb

doubt it, I patched microcodes myself. AMI bios, it went well with standard method (cpu table was o.k.). I think it has same bios chips as my P5Q3 - 2MB size.

he is currently trying settings from my message, I will post his results.


Edit

He called me and it turned out that nothing seems working. it doesn't even post on settings other than auto. Once OS was fully loaded and some program showed him 2 cores instead of 4 !!!
Now he will bring his PC to my place and I will try his setup with X5450.

flash back to stock and see how it behaves with his chip. it won't kill you try it.

X5482 on MAXIMUS II FORMULA - story continuation

So he brought whole PC with him and we tested everything that I could think of. Socked looked o.k I didn't noticed any pins that are bent.
turned off C1E & rest of staff, set voltages, and timings manually still BSODs with random number, I didn't noted numbers because there was different almost every time it occurred. Anyway RAM wasn't the issue as we tested also on my DDR2 Goodram 800 CL6 (it is more of a generic RAM). So when we started to play with different RAM slots with only 1 module (channel B slot 1) windows booted.. and worked fine, but only 2 threads were available, prime95 was running o.k. but only showing 2 cores! rolleyes.gif You don't see that everyday! All settings left on AUTO.
So than I installed X5482 once again on my P5Q3 DLX and it was running o.k. as expected.
Than I installed X5450 on his mobo and it was working with his RAM, all settings on default AUTO. Showing 4 cores in CPU-Z, but when we tried to run prime95 it almost immediately started showing errors. So it wasn't 100% stable, just a little better than X5482. Same with Goodram. We flashed BIOS again, but it didn't changed the situation. Also there are confirmations of X5450 working fine on the same model.
We have came to a conclusion that his mobo is damaged in some way (my best guess is NB because RAM didn't worked in every slot). Under normal circumstances on his E8500 it runs o.k. but with quads installed something is stressed more (even more with FSB 1600) and it gives out. Than he remembered that years ago when he bought this Maximus it wasn't new but 2 months old and probably the previous owner did something that it really deserved selling so fast. As I said earlier my best guess it was played with voltage jumpers for extreme overclocking and NB was damaged.

Hello, recently I bought a an e5450 and decided to try it out with GA-EP45-UD3. Did the stuff that was written on the first page and here are the results:



I was wondering about the temperatures. Do I have to set offset in Core Temp to -15 to get proper readings or do I set Tj. Max somewhere else. Also does everything else looks ok?

The Cpu is working right now with my mobo


anyone can help me ?, i keep trying , but the bios keep saying "there is a know Cpu , a Bios update is necessary to unleash the full power of the cpu !"

I followed the directions and got a E5450 up and running on a Asus P5G41T-M/CSM. It runs great and stable for the most part, but when I start crunching with BOINC or running 3DMark or something intense along that line, I get BSOD's or general freezing. Heat is not an issue since it is liquid cooled with a Corsair H60 and doesn't make it past 40C. I was thinking memory voltage, but I'm not sure.

History....

Began life as a Pentium Dual-Core E6700 (1066). Ran most the time at 10% OC profile. Sometimes up to 15%. I have 8GB of Kingston DDR3 1333 RAM. Has never been run at 1333 until now. Mobo has never been run at 1333 until now. Memtest86+ runs indefinitely with no errors or lock-ups.

I just bought a Asrock G41C-GS to put the old E6700 in for the kids. I'm wondering if I should do the MOD to that and run the Xeon on the Asrock mobo instead, but I'm concerned it doesn't have room to OC, like my Asus board does.

It only gives me issues, gaming, crunching, and benchmarking. Normal productivity stuff runs fine.

Thoughts?
