<div class="bbcode_center" style="text-align:center;">Hi everyone! I have been following a thread started a while ago about an awesome mod that is super simple and gives new life to the LGA775 platform. The original thread has become cluttered and the original poster hasn't updated his posts so I figured I would put together all of the findings into one thread to help any one interested. If you are interested in this mod, this is the place to find all the information you need about it!<br></div>
<div class="bbcode_center" style="text-align:center;"><br><span style="font-size:24px;">Overview</span></div>
<br>
This mod is for LGA775 motherboards only! It allows the use of LGA771 Xeon CPU's that are very affordable and powerful in many LGA775 motherboards with a few small modifications to the motherboard and CPU.<br><br><b>How does it work?</b><br><br>
We are using a small sticker to flip two pins on the bottom of the CPU, then rotating the CPU to the correct position on in a LGA775 motherboard. If you want a more in-depth explanation, check this thread out: <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?285635-Overclocking-Thread-about-LGA-771-CPU-on-LGA-775-Mobo" target="_blank">Explanation</a><br><br><b>Why would I want to do this?</b><br><br>
Many people simply do not have the money to dump their old rig and buy a new one. The LGA775 platform has began to show its age in recent games and programs with most consumer processors. LGA771 Xeon processors are very affordable and blow most consumer level LGA775 cpu's out of the water. For example, a Xeon X5460 can be had for around $40. For $40 you can get a quad core CPU with 12mb of cache that runs at 3.16GHz stock. You also must remember that these CPU's were meant for servers, which means they are binned higher than the consumer level or even the extreme edition LGA775 CPU's. This usually equates to better overclocks and lower operating temperatures.<br><div class="bbcode_center" style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:24px;"><br>
Compatibility</span></div>
<br>
The following boards/chipsets have been proven compatible:<br><br>
<br><br>
Choosing the right motherboard for this mod is extremely important. Some boards need a simple microcode update while others will not post with the Xeon CPU's at all. I will attempt to create the most complete compatibility chart I can, but also take a look at post #3 and see if your board is listed.<br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">If you are running a motherboard with the X38, X48, Q35, or Q45 chipset there is a high chance it may not be compatible with this mod!</span><br><div class="bbcode_center" style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:24px;"><br>
The Mod</span></div>
<br>
Before you modify your motherboard, update your bios to the latest version if you haven't already.<br><br><i><b>Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage you may do to your motherboard or CPU while performing this mod!</b></i><br><br>
First gather the necessary tools and components:<br><br>
A sharp knife: Xacto, box cutter, or anything similar<br>
A LGA775 motherboard with a compatible Chipset<br>
A LGA771 Xeon CPU<br>
A "Pin Mod" Sticker <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Lot-Of-10-2013-New-Products-Server-Super-Intel-Quad-Core-XEON-CPU-LGA-771-Turn/1190427196.html?cn=null&PID=6152855&tp1=awib0et1af3m&tracelog=null&src=ale&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aliexpress.com%2Fitem%2FLot-Of-10-2013-New-Products-Server-Super-Intel-Quad-Core-XEON-CPU-LGA-771-Turn%2F1190427196.html&cv=11032041&af=cj_6152855&vd=30" target="_blank">Link 1</a><br>
Optional:<br>
A pair of tweezers<br>
A well lit room or a lamp to light up your work space<br><br>
Lets start with the motherboard. First located the two CPU guides in the CPU socket:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1688238/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1688238" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1688238/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 667px"></a><br><br>
Now use your knife and cut them both off<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1663229/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1663229" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1663229/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1690335/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1690335" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1690335/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
Once you do that you are done with half the mod!<br><br>
Now get your CPU and "Pin Mod" stickers, tweezers come in handy when applying the stickers<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587636/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1587636" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587636/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
And stick the sticker on with the little triangle facing the triangle on the bottom of the CPU<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1690333/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1690333" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1690333/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
Now make sure when placing the CPU into the socket you line up the triangle on the CPU and the triangle on the socket!<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1690338/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1690338" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1690338/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
You did it! Now put your system back together and get to overclocking!<br><br><div class="bbcode_center" style="text-align:center;"><span style="font-size:24px;">Conclusion</span></div>

Weirdest/best upgrade deal I've ever made. Sold my q6700 enough to buy a e5440, the adapter, some mayhems dye (for main computer). And hands down the e5440>q6700<br><br>
Well the evga 780i seems to play nice with the E5440.<br>
I oc'ed it to 4.0ghz, but my vdroop was pretty bad. Didn't crash, but ibt faild after 2-3 tests.<br>
So stuck it at 3.2 for 1:1 fsb:ram.<br><br>
The crasiest part is the temps. I let this go for about an hour and nothing hits over 55*c (even at 4.0ghz). I thought maybe it realtemp was misreading the sensor, but I felt the exhaust and it wasn't particularly over-wam. My q6700 was hotter under load stock.<br><br>
Didn't realize I was using old bios too, off to flash em.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1688211/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1688211" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1688211/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 197px"></a><br><br><br><br>
bumped it up to 3.4ghz, somehow I had the multi at 8 instead of 8.5.</div>

Hi all<br>
I just successfully used a Xenon E5430 to work with a Gigabyte G41MT-S2P motherboard using a pin mod sticker and modding the socket<br>
There is only one problem since my E5430 is a E0 stepping it has disabled sse 4.1 etc.<br>
Does any one have a modded bios for this motherboard or can any one point me in the direction of some sort of tutorial so I can have a go myself<br>
oh and this motherboard is pants for overclocking wont go over 335fsb without locking up on boot<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1685059/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1685059" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1685059/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 197px"></a><br><br>

Awesome news i fortunately got lucky and my X5460 posted right away with bios P32 on my Evga 680i <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="wheee.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies//wheee.gif">, I'm going to install it on my 780i since it overclocks better. I wasnt expecting it to work though on the 680i since it didnt officially support 45nm Yorkfield quad cores.<br><br><img alt="LL" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="1680122" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1680122/width/900/height/675/flags/LL" style="width:900px;height:675px;"><br><br><img alt="LL" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="1680123" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1680123/width/900/height/675/flags/LL" style="width:900px;height:675px;"><br><br><img alt="LL" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="1680121" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1680121/width/900/height/675/flags/LL" style="width:900px;height:675px;"><br><br><img alt="900x900px-LL-322f2b54_two.jpeg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/3/32/900x900px-LL-322f2b54_two.jpeg" style="width:900px;height:675px;"><br><br><img alt="900x900px-LL-e2e65b1d_five.jpeg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/e/e2/900x900px-LL-e2e65b1d_five.jpeg" style="width:900px;height:563px;"><br><br>
Going to start testing overclocks with it next to see how high it can go, i wonder if it will overclock as nice as the Q6600s.<br><br>
Thanks so much to all who contributed to this thread <img alt="cheers.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/cheers.gif"><br><br><br>
Edit: alright just got it up and running on my XFX 780i also, running bios P09.<br><img alt="LL" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="1680344" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1680344/width/865/height/855/flags/LL" style="width:865px;height:855px;"><br><br>
I think this engineering sample X5460 might have an unlocked multi because its letting me select any multiplier i want <img alt="ph34r-smiley.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/ph34r-smiley.gif"></div>

So, I posted on bios-mods.com earlier today and never got a reply. Being incredibly impatient and bored I decided to try and mod the BIOS myself, I'll let the picture do the rest of the talking... <img alt="rolleyes.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif"><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1661912/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1661912" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1661912/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 390px"></a><br><br>
So ladies and gents, if anyone here needs a BIOS modded to support Xeons or other 775 CPU's let me know and I can do it.<br><br>
I'll be back later with some overclocking results <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"></div>

Bump for this thread!<br><br>
These guys showed up this afternoon and I got to installing them<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587636/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1587636" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587636/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587645/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1587645" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587645/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
They are somewhat like the ones OP had, but they do not need to be cut and have adhesive pre applied. Peel the adhesive, mod the socket, and drop it in. Bam, quad core awesomeness!<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587646/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1587646" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587646/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
Booted up no problem on my Foxconn G31 board.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587647/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1587647" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1587647/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 352px"></a><br><br>
Its running a bit warm, but I will pick up a new heatsink sometime soon and hopefully overclock it a bit.</div>

So, there are two different ways, depends on your BIOS type (Award or AMI):<br><br><a class="spoiler-link H-spoiler-toggle" href="#"><strong>How to update cpucodes in the Award BIOS:</strong> <span class="spoiler-help">(Click to show)</span></a><div class="spoiler-hidden">

At the end of the output you should find the following lines:

I posted this is the other thread, but i think it's welcome here too, I can't confirm it, but it looks pretty accurate;<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1700235/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1700235" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1700235/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 573px"></a>

Am i correct to assume that both links for the pin mod stickers come with pre applied adhesive? I ordered the stickers from the first link.

I can confirm the ones from the first link do have adhesive.

Good to know because i almost ordered the stickers from the second link since they were cheaper. This may be the cheapest mod ever. $32 for a x5460 and $19 for pin stickers how does one argue with that?

Does anyone know if it is safe to clean the bottom side of a processor with alcohol? For whatever reason my Xeon came with TIM caked on the bottom of one corner. I dont see why you shouldnt be able to do this without any consequences but i thought id make sure first.

What an awesome find to be able to use 771 cpu's in 775 sockets...hats off to the one that put it out there for us.<img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
Anyway, I picked up a few of those adapters from alibaba(thanks OP) and got myself a E5440 to try in a Lenovo M58 SFF. First off I tried the patched E5440 in a Zotac GF9300 ITX and it booted and ran windows perfectly. So then I tried the Lenovo and it wouldn't post, even with the latest bios. I have zero bios modding knowledge and was wondering if someone can mod it for me?

I might be able to mod it for you, is the BIOS file a .bin? If it is I can add the microcodes and it should work.

Here you go, <a href="http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkcentre_bios/5cjt77a.zip" target="_blank">http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkcentre_bios/5cjt77a.zip</a><br><br>
EDIT, replaced the link with a zipped download instead of a executable. Just a bit cleaner that way.

Wow, even though I won't try it, this is pretty epic. Hopefully in a half dozen years someone does the same thing with 1155 and 1156. <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br>

Hmm, CBROM won't open it. When it boots, does it say if it has an award BIOS or a Phoenix BIOS?

Yeah, she'll be right mate, could probably get away with just rubbing it off with a coffee filter even.
