Windows loaded,just ran prime95 for 1hour36 mins without over heating. I tried the e5450 in here prior to upgrading the microcodes and it loaded windows(fans just ran full speed).Don't want to swap it out of my running rig right now, but I'm wondering if maybe the 120 watt processor is the issue? The q9550 is only 95 watts,and the 5450 is 80. Anyone else think the 5470 might be pulling too much from other board areas?rolleyes.gif If anyone else is running a 5470 on a (with G45M03 motherboard) from dell, kindly let me know what OS? Thanks!
hey schuck,

Just do yourself a favor and go back to page 966 and read all my posts from the last week. The Dell Vostro 420 and 220 are nearly identical, with the same exact bios. I tried everything (went as far as nuking my pc) to no avail, and had all the same problems you have. I have since given up on the e5450, and luckily picked up a q9650 for 40 bucks. If you find a way to get it to work, please let me know though.

Go for it mate.
People get rid of them because they're old.
Most don't know anything about PCs and have no idea of their worth.
I got my UD3P as part of an old PC complete for $A71 pickup. Good case, 4GB ram, vid card and 500w PSU too.
Use a search term like GA-EP45 or Ausus P5Q (the two top 775 mobos) and make sure to go into advanced search and tick the box for search in description.
Follow the search and tell it to alert you when something new comes up. Book mark anything your interested in but DO NOT bid. Watch it, count it down and slam a big bid in at the last moment (5 seconds or less depending on your nerve and connection speed).
Nine times out of 10 you'll get the item for a reasonable price because other watchers haven't set their auto bidding high enough and don't have time to respond. Bidding early allows them to bump their bid up.
Sometimes it can take a week or two or even three for the right thing to come up at the right price, but you have to be patient.
This is the system that has worked for me many times.

I bid in a very similar manner, though occasionally the last second bid doesn't go through which is so frustrating, I can think of things I'm still kicking myself for not winning.

Was watching a whole PC yesterday, collect only and right near me, so I hoped that'd keep bids down. 5 mins to go bidding was £40, I was happy to pay up to about £90-100. It finished up as £180, I assume because of the inflated eBay value of its 1156 board and CPU, nothing else of it was any particular note.

Sometimes when people don't search descriptions it doesn't come up in their search so there are less bidders.
Sometimes when you take a close look at the pictures you can ascertain the motherboard model.
Then it's just a matter of getting confirmation from the seller and you could be on to a winner.
Hoping your going to keep the faith and stay S775 of course?

Hi everybody,

I've been following this forum for a while but this is the first time I write.

I read most of the entries related to LGA771 socket Xeons modding. Some days ago, I acquired an already modded (comes with the sticker and the notches modified to fit my LGA775 socket without further modifications) L5335 Xeon but I can't get it to work.

I have an ASUS p5kpl/1600 mobo, so the first thing I did was to modify my current BIOS (AMI v. 0512) with the three microcode files which came in the Xeon microcode zip file and then flashed it.

My system boots to BIOS and correct information about the Xeon processor is displayed as well, but computer does not boot. It displays this message :

"BIOS update recommended.
To unleash this CPU's full power, please perform BIOS update process.
Press any key to continue"

Any idea on how to solve this? my mobo is a G31/ICH7 so it should work with all Xeons, isn't it?

Thanks everybody in advance,

Kind regards,

Manel (beltrixx).

Update :
======

I've reflashed the 0512 Bios version again with a modified bios which includes 10 bin files (microcodes downloaded from Delidded). After flashing the BIOS, I've completely reset CMOS : remove battery, clear CMOS jumper and load bios defaults.

I got rid of the message "BIOS update recommended. To unleash this CPU's full power, please perform BIOS update process." but after the POST process I get a blinking cursor and my PC never boots to the OS.

I think my motherboard, although stated to be fully compatible with all Xeons, doesn't work with this particular one L5335, CPUID : 6FB (SLAEN)

Any help would be appreciated frown.gif

Welcome.
According to Delidded your board should support all the modded 771>775 Xeons right up to 136W. Tested was the L5420.
You're obviously chasing minimal power consumption because the L5335 is 50W and only has a 6x multiplier. It's not going to overclock very well. It will be 6x whatever you get the FSB to - maybe 2.4 to 3.0Ghz if you're lucky.
Anyway try the attached modded BIOS.
When you're done clear CMOS again, boot into setup and load optimised settings, check your RAM settings and ammend if necessary then let it boot into Windows with these settings at least once.
Then reset and start playing.
Bear in mind it's a 65mm CPU too.

I can definitely see how you could grab a bargain if someone didnt identify the mb in the PC they were selling and you spotted it was a good one. I got an amazing deal on a collection of books once where there was a major spelling mistake in the listing, and I merely stumbled across it randomly- searches with the correct spelling wouldn't show it.

I'll probably keep playing around with 775 as it is affordable and this modding/overclocking lark has kept me amused lately. I did try and win a 1366 board but it went for silly money! More than Z170...

Thanks Revhead for your reply.

I gave a try at your BIOS file, identifided as "ASUS p5kpl-1600 revision 0512 test 001". I reflashed it using ASUS Ez Flash and did the complete reset procedure (remove battery, jumper in clear CMOS pos etc) but the result was the same : PC did not boot to the OS and showed a blinking cursor after the POST, instead.

I couldn't load optimized settings because my mobo doesn't have this option, I chose to load "default settings".

I'm trying this particular Xeon because I'm searching low power consumption as well as having a quad core processor to replace my Core2 Duo E6750. I have no intention to overclock my system but, as I read my chipset (G31/ICH7) was expected to be fully compatible with all 771 Xeons, I decided to try with this particular low consumption L5335 Xeon (very few of them have 50W TDP).

I've tried several BIOS files -some of them modified by me using mmtool and loaded with 771 CPU microcodes- and I think my motherboard cannot simply support this processor unless someone here comes up with a magical bios file that gets me past this "annoying blinking cursor" screen and let my PC boot to the OS (Windows 7).

Thank you very much for your fast reply wink.gif

Would anyone be willing to mod this bios with microcodes? regards smile.gif
