Terminator90 Thanks @schuck6566 . Which Intel E5420 processor steppings are supported on this motherboard ?

Could someone help me to upgrade the Xeon microcodes of my BIOS ? Now I have the latest 26.11 BIOS version (you can find it HERE).


Thanks
45nm socket 771 & 775 microcodes added & updatedtto the bios U linked.

I modded my bios with Xeon microcodes flashed it and put in my new Xeon e5450(E0 stepping) into my mobo(Its IPIEL-LA rev. 1.03 OEM HP Board which should support Q9650). The computer starts, the bios recognizes the xeon but windows 7 won't start it, freezes at windows logo screen. It managed to start very,very slowly just once and I saw in My computer that the windows also recognizes the xeon. I opened CPU-Z there was the XEON but I've noticed that the fields for multiplier, bus speed and rated FSB were empty only the core speed was visible. No luck reinstalling windows either the installation was stuck in the same place - windows logo screen. Any ideas i will be forever grateful.
To revive a very old comment. Just want to that I was in exactly the same position as Mighty, and still am, and that choosing booting with raid/ahci/IDE set in the bios did not fix the issue

Thanks for trying @agentx007 . I think this board is just not compatible with xeon even with the correct mod procedures.

In your opinion, which original Intel cooler is the best for 775 socket ? I'm just wondering how intel thinks to keep the temperature so far from the 70° C when it's under heavy load with an air cooler...
What I found on the sink U posted. Intel Socket 775 Aluminum Heat Sink Fan to 3.0 GHz General Features: Aluminum heat sink. 3.5-inch fan 12VDC, 0.60A Supports Intel Core 2 Duo Socket 775 CPUs up to 3.0 GHz.

The short heat sinks without the copper cores aren't meant for the quad core cpu's IMHO. and the copper core sinks are better @ spreading the heat through the sink. If not using an aftermarket cooler, then I'd make sure to get the taller one with the copper core.maybe


Intel 60188-001 SKT-775 Active Copper Core CPU Cooler for Intel XEON 3XXX


or something similar.

U may also want to make sure U R getting enough fresh air flowing through the case. As a trial, try running the test with the case open laying so that the heat rises out of it. Finally I'll say that intel burn test is an INTENSIVE test. See if it does the same running Prime95 for example. Prime is also intensive,but not quite as extreme as intel burn IMHO. Images below show the common intel coolers.A lot of people either use 3rd party coolers,or some are using the 1's from the servers.

For most of the other processor with TjMax 85° C or 100° C, this temperature under load it's quite normal but with the L5420 with a TjMax of 70 celsius degree it's near the max supported temperature, so I'm very worried about that. I've used the Noctua Nt-H1 as thermal paste in combination with an intel stock heatsink. I've attach a photo with the recorded temperature. Did other users have the same problem with this CPU ? What can I do ? Thanks
