[MOD] LGA775 Support For LGA771 Xeon CPUs - Page 626

post #6251 of 12463
The three Xeon LGA771 microcode files provided at post #2 have the following names:

- cpu0001067a_plat00000044_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin
- cpu00010676_plat00000004_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin
- cpu00010676_plat00000040_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin

Using intelmicrocodelist.exe to check on each of them:

D:\xeon>intelmicrocodelist.exe cpu0001067a_plat00000044_ver00000a0b_date20100928.bin
Intel Microcode List ver0.4a

CPUID=1067A Rev=A0B 2010/09/28 CRC=B007E7B0 Off=0 Size=2000 Plat=2,6

Press any key to exit

D:\xeon>intelmicrocodelist.exe cpu00010676_plat00000004_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin
Intel Microcode List ver0.4a

CPUID=10676 Rev=60F 2010/09/29 CRC=8FE1A207 Off=0 Size=1000 Plat=2

Press any key to exit

D:\xeon>intelmicrocodelist.exe cpu00010676_plat00000040_ver0000060f_date20100929.bin
Intel Microcode List ver0.4a

CPUID=10676 Rev=60F 2010/09/29 CRC=8FE1A207 Off=0 Size=1000 Plat=6

Press any key to exit

Notice that the CPUID, Rev and Date are consistent between the filename and what is listed by the tool. but the platform ids are consistently different:

plat00000044 => Plat=2,6,
plat00000004 => Plat=2,
plat00000040 => Plat=6


Can anyone explain why?

That is normal for AWARD BIOS, it just have a different way of numbering the platforms. Another example is standard LGA775 platforms 1,10, 11 that are displayed as 0, 4 in AWARD.

I've just build a system on xeon x5260 overrclocked to 3,8 ghz (prime95 12 hours stable =) ) Mobo asus p5k-epu with modded bios from this topic, THANKS!
Got 4x 1 gb of patriot ram.
I want to run Leage of legends at high setting at 1080p and i have 480w psu with active pfc and a single line of 34 Ampers.
I need new vga because my old 8600gts and 7800gt are really old crap.

Was thinking about radeon 5850.

Any other ideas?

Has anyone had a thermal sensor error on there Xeon yet? I get -38*C with every xeon on this HP IPIEL-LA... Fans run full speed on the PWM 4-Pin and temps are not known. Except it shuts down when it gets very hot. Is this microcode related?

I only used the E5410 of the rig and it's now runnning in my EP45-UD3LR @ 3,22Ghz.
I didn't use the Dell Mainboard because it's too big for my mid tower, power consumption is extremly high, you need a special power supply, needs buffered RAM and at last the Dell rig was way too noisy.

The MB runs 2x S771 CPUs, 8 RAM Slots and has 2 PCIe 2.0 x16 slots. Intel 5400 chipset...

Nice the T7400 is sweet. Although you will require a Precision 690, t5400, t7400 PSU basically because of the proprietary 20-pin, 24,-pin, and 8-pin power connections. Everything else on these PSU's is not prioprietary. I modded a 1,100w 690 PSU a while ago to work on a standard system and it wasn't all too difficult just took time since it had never been done before. These power supply's are extremely powerful and durable unlike most power supplies out there. I didn't witness vdroop at all even up over 1,000 watts of load. I did add a aftermarket fan inside the power supply running quiet and full speed at 12v continuous which prevented vdroop of the capacitors because the caps ran very cool.

Otherwise great board dude, you can pickup 8 x 4GB modules ECC from Samsung I believe M393T5160QZA-CE6 which is very common among LGA 771 Dual Xeon boards and highly compatible. The price is very cheap so check out Ebay and be running 32GB and in Quad-Channel mode on the T7400 so true 256-bit memory bus.

Installed E5440 (E0) successfully on GA-G41M-ES2L motherboard.

During the install, I patched the BIOS to add the xeon CPU Microcode as well:

But looking at the above AIDA64 image, it seems like even though the CPU is being recognized as LGA771 DP platform CPU, but it is actually using the A07h revision of the microcode (the only A07h rev microcode is the one from the Standard LGA 776 platform).

Question: Is the AIDA64 info saying that we are actually using the Standard LGA 776 microcode, instead of the LGA 771 microcode (should be rev A0B)? If this is the case, is the BIOS patch for new cpu microcode necessary?

It gets to negative numbers when temperature is higher than Tjmax (85C for most of the common Xeons here). In addition you have written that it shuts down so I suspect that the cooling is mounted incorrectly. Otherwise try clearing the CMOS few times with jumper and battery - it helps sometimes with wrong readings. Updating to the latest BIOS and adding microcodes is always recommended.

You failed with patching the BIOS and you are lucky that your mobo still POSTs. If you look at cbrom report "/d" you will notice that your new microcodes aren't there.
This BIOS can't be patched the way "as the instruction says". There is an certain error that cbrom doesn't report (same as many others...).
Really, folks without knowledge and experience shouldn't mess with their BIOSes teaching.gif

Lucky indeed...Since the mod, this machine has been working absolutely stable for a while now...

Confirmed. They are not there.
