Here is a page with the directions and files that contain both the 771 AND the 775 cpu microcodes. Not sure how well it'll work 4 you because it looks like U have an intel bios & they're pretty much locked. https://www.delidded.com/lga-771-xeon-microcode/

Do I need to insert some microcode into the bios?
usually yes

AllGo'N'Show Well I had a strong run with my 771->775 setups! 680i mobo spit some capacitors on one of the machines and the other I haven't had a chance to open yet.

Upgraded to an i5 9600K, still considering ordering caps and getting the 680i back alive as it was a quick machine for the value.

Retrorockit I did the BIOS Mod. I had missed a final step the first try. SSE4.1 wasn't there, it is now. Some of the benchmarks run a little better.
So the end result Dell Optiplex 380 MT X5470,8GB DDR3 1066 RAM,240GB SSD (on SATA2), and GTX10603GB.
With the BIOS Mods.com patched BIOS no Windows fan issue. Prime 95 stable at 1.1125V. 62*C.
Patched BIOS and The socket modded LGA7771 is all it takes for an Optiplex 380 Xeon swap.
The stock PSU can handle a GTX1050Ti.
SetFSB supports the PLL but it freezes with just a few MHz applied. Typical of G41 systems I guess.
Mini Tower needs cooler J9761
Desktop cooler is 0H7445
SFF cooler is JP911

Retrorockit I will check for that. I had an R0 stepping 1067A CPU before. But I don't know if I had it before. In some ways the X5470 is a step back from the Q9505S.
The BIOS mod isn't out of the question. I just thought I would post what I found using other methods. I did a GPU swap in the middle of this also.

I was already running a 1067A LGA775 CPU. So my BIOS had compatible microcode, and useful setting applied. I taped my Xeon and the BIOS would not accept new settings from the 'Incompatable Processor", and ran at the old speed and Voltage. Throttlestop let me raise Voltage to the maximum 1.2500V. for that CPU, and raise the multiplier from 8.5 to 10. It also saved these setting to BIOS. CPU error hit F1 issue remains. But no Dell BIOS mod required.
The next thing it helped with was 100% fan speed in Windows when waking. I had raised the Voltage for some SetFSB overclocking but the G41 chipset wouldn't go past 340fsb, so not much point in that. I started undervolting with TS 6.00 to limit the need for PWM fan control. 1.1125V. stable @ 59*C. PWM fan. I used HWInfo64 to set a manual 1100RPM fan speed and got 62*C. stable running Small FFTs. I could do a custom profile but this Dell fan idles at 1000 rpm anyway.
So if you can't find a BIOS mod you might give this a try.
I didn't notice in the earlier post if you were getting sse4.1 without the bios mod on the xeon?(that's 1 reason most of us need to mod,to enable the rest of the features of the cpu)

Retrorockit Here's my LGA771 swap.
https://www.userbenchmark.com/System...iPlex-380/1942
Dell Optiplex 380 BTX Mini Tower, X5470,8GB DDR3 1066,SSD, and GTX1060 3GB
The 32% CPU rating is becuase it's being compared to dual CPU systems.

I was having fan @ 100% issues that I thought were from the BIOS "unsupported CPU" error. But they were only happeneing at wake from sleep in Windows.
I booted a Linux Live DVD to confirm this and it was Windows related.
Since the SetFSB OC wasn't getting me very much I decided to try undervolting it. Throttlestop 6.00 got it down to 1.1125V. 59*C. running P95 smallFFTs.
I saved that to BIOS from in Windows. Then in HWInfo64 I used the fan controller option to set a manual 1100RPM fan speed which =62*C. smallFFT.
I still need to hit F1 at boot. But no Dell BIOS modding required.
