[MOD] LGA775 Support For LGA771 Xeon CPUs - Page 309

post #3081 of 12470
I cant really help you with that. I would think the problem is not with the 45 nm chip being a quad core but being a revised design. Why not throw a quad core 65 nm Xeon at those chipsets?

Anyone tried it on a asus pq5pl-am?

Hi.
I have the same problem as in @ joeyx86 (My motherboard biostar g31m). Dear @Bucho help me understand.

Yes I deleted the two 10676 and one 1067A codes and added these three updated ones. The ones includes were platform ID 1, 10 and 11 and I added the same. I still don't know for sure what that platform ID translates to (Socket/maybe chipset type?).
In the first posts in this thread they link to platform ID 4, 40 and 44. So I guess you tried these and I added the 1, 10 and 11. So if none of them work for you you are out of luck. Your Xeon is a CPU ID 1067A for sure so you should only need these microcodes.

I got a bunch of 5160's if those are useable.

I just noticed that on HWMonitor the l5420 heats up to 60C from fresh boot and cool down to 25C. This is from using stock cooler and Arctic Silver 5.

I think the reason the motherboard thinks the cpu is over the tdp limit because the heavy power draw during boot up?

Anyways I gutted the p6 micro codes from a server bios and put it in mine. I also tried using the stock bios and that gave me the same results.

It seems like the computer is snappier with the modified bios but maybe that's just a placebo effect?

The only negatives in this is that I have to press f10 to bypass the error message and I can't use my hacintosh partition anymore. Screen frozen and has scrambled colors, like one of those old pc crashing.

What you removed from the BIOS and what you wrote down there, and then I got confused.
Please describe your actions in detail.

Open MMTool and load your BIOS. In the section tab "CPU Patch" you should see a list of microcodes that are in that BIOS.
For example look here:


You want to look for the CPU IDs 0676 and 067A. There should already be some in there. You also see the revision and the date of that microcode. Usually these are from 2007 or 2008. But the most up to date are from 2010.

Since I want to make sure the mainboard uses the latest microcodes for these CPU IDs I delete all the old entries of CPU ID 0676 and 067A that I can find in there. Click on the line, select the option "delete a patch" and the button apply. Do this for all the lines you want to delete.
Then change the option to "insert a patch", browse for the updated patch files you downloaded from the 2nd post in this thread or from the intel website directly. Do this for every patch you need one by one.

In the screenshot above you can see there are still the old entries in there and the new ones at the bottom. I try to avoid that since it already happened that a board used the first patches it found and that were the old ones.
In your case the BIOS size is too small anyway to add new patches so you have to remove the old ones.

Only thing that I still don't know is what that platform ID stands for. Maybe it doesn't matter anyway and the BIOS just looks for the CPU ID, but usually there are patches in there with platform ID 1 and 10 (for 10676 CPU ID) and 11 (for 1067A).
So I add these platform IDs. In the post at the beginning of the thread they use ID 4 and 40 (for 10676) and 44 (for 1067A). And in the complete microcode list that you can download from intel there are some more platform IDs for these CPU IDs.
All the patches seem to be the same no matter what platform ID but I couldn't find out what the platform ID stands for and if maybe a board depends on it.

Hi there!

I'm new to this forum and very interested in upgrading my old C2D-CPU to a Xeon-CPU with four cores (for small amount of money compared to the regular quad-core CPUs).

So here's my problem: I've got the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 Rev. 1.0 mainboard with the latest F14 bios from Gigabyte. I've tried several methods upgrading the microcodes following the here described methods but I'm still unsure about the result. As described by some other owners of similar mainboards from Gigabyte it is not that easy to modify the bios (extracting the existing microcodes from the F14 bios doesn't work as the bin-file remains empty). Maybe adding the microcodes directly will work but - as I've mentioned - I'm not sure.

So, before I 'brick' my system I'd like to ask the community for some help.

1) Can somebody please confirm that the bios-mod works (which method exactly?) with the GA P35 DS3 (Rev. 1.0) mainboard?
2) If it works - could you please post here the modded bios with the 771 (Xeon) microcodes? Or at maybe do the mod for me?

The bios can be downloaded from:

http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/BIOS/motherboard_bios_ga-p35-ds3_f14.exe

Many thanks in advance!

Hi everybody,

my mobo (gigabyte p35c-ds3r rev 2.0) needs a microcode update for my e5440 rev e0.

I'm stuck here:
Quote:
cbrom195.exe BIOS.BIN /nc_cpucode NCPUCODE.BIN

NCPUCODE.BIN won't update with the original microcode of the official bios.


the following step works fine:
Quote:
copy /b ncpucode.bin + cpu00010676_plat00000004_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin + cpu00010676_plat00000040_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin + cpu0001067a_plat00000044_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin ncpucode.bin

and ncpucode.bin become a 16kb .bin file


but when I run again:
Quote:
cbrom195.exe BIOS.BIN /nc_cpucode NCPUCODE.BIN

I should find a new bios with only three microcode. But nothing happens.

Help!
post #3089 of 12470
@peturba and @al17
It seems that the GigaByte P35 boards have a special kind of Award BIOS. Either the microcodes are hidden, compressed or somehow different included than in other boards.
A few pages back somebody with a P35-DQ6 board had the same problems. But his solution seems to be working:

Update your board to the latest BIOS (you want to mod).
Save that BIOS directly from the board using the @BIOS tool from GigaByte:
http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/Utility/motherboard_utility_atbios.exe
Save it as a binary (BIN) file.

You still won't be able to extract the microcodes from that BIOS but you may add some and they eventually get used.

So you start with:
Quote:
type NUL > NCPUCODE.BIN
copy /b ncpucode.bin + cpu00010676_plat00000004_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin + cpu00010676_plat00000040_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin + cpu0001067a_plat00000044_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin ncpucode.bin
attrib +r NCPUCODE.BIN
cbrom195.exe BIOS.BIN /nc_cpucode NCPUCODE.BIN
(only a short message about combining the microcodes should appear)
->check with Intel Tool to see if the new codes are in there:
intelmicrocodelist BIOS.BIN
-> CBROM should also see the new codes, but only these
cbrom195.exe BIOS.BIN /D
-> flash your board with that new BIOS.BIN

As far as I can tell there are still the old microcodes in these BIOS files with the above method, but it was reported to be working.
post #3090 of 12470
@Bucho: thanks a lot for the quick answer. I'll try this out as soon as I'm back at home. I'm curious about the results. I'll let you and the other users know what happens if I try the described method (it sounds promising).

Update:

The result (dealing wit the bin-format bios instead of the original one) is the same. Output of "cbrom195.exe BIOS.BIN /D":
