Question about Mach Speed P4MBMS Motherboard

1 Answer

System Freeze I just installed a P4MBMS motherboard with an Intel Celeron D351 3.2GHz processor, Intel 775 cpu heatsink and fan, and V-Data 512MB PC3200 400MHz DDR memory into a new system. It is in an ATX midtower case with 300 watt power supply with a Lite-on CDRW and a 20GB Maxtor hard drive (from an old system). When I started the system, it started right up with good performance. I then hit delete to enter the BIOS. It entered the BIOS properly but then the system froze before I could even start to setup the new BIOS. I tried to restart the system and it would not restart. I shut it off and waited about 15 minutes. I then restarted the system and it did the same thing only it didn't get as far into the BIOS screen before locking up. I'm thinking that the processor might be overheating (in spite of the Intel heatsink and fan) but would like confirmation before spending more money for an additional case fan and thermal compound. Please help.

Re: System Freeze

Sc122870, try this first disconnect the hard drive cable and then try getting into bios, also try disconnecting both cables to the cdrw and to the hard drive and try to get into the bios. Sometimes if the pin assignments on the 2 drives are wrong, bios will freeze. If it does the same problem with the 2 drives unhooked then it might be your mobo.

Which fan/heatsinks can be used on an MS-7174 Ver 1 motherboard? It seems there needs to be clearance for some capacitors to fit beneath it.

Heatsinks are dependent on the type of processor that you have, I recommend that you call Microcenter or fry electronic

Does a core duo processor fit into a P4MBMS

Hi, you can download a manual here:

CPU Support: Fully Support Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 CPU Up to 3.6Ghz

There could be a bios issue when supporting a dual core cpu.
You should read the manual carefully before you continue.

Good luck.

Hello, I have a Intel esys 865 gv / 775 motherboard. and win xp installed. The system hangs up after about 5 minutes after booting up. No error messages are displayed. all cooling fans are working. and...

Your system is probably hanging because of high temperature. Check cpu temperature in bios hardware monitor. If it is to high check the heatsink is fitted properly also apply thermal paste between processor and heatsink.

Right i need the size or model for the cooling fan that all intelboard mode E210882

The Heatsink/Fan combo is based on the processor socket used.

After a few search hits, I have seen E210882 on Intel based motherboards, that use two different processor sockets.
The Socket 478, and the LGA 775 processor socket.

The socket for the Socket 478 has the pin holes. The Processor has the pins. (478 of them)

The socket for the LGA 775 processor socket has the pins. The Processor has the pin holes. (775 of them)

Identify which processor socket you have, buy accordingly as to the Heatsink/Fan combo.

One example of a Heatsink/Fan combo for an Socket 478 processor socket,
(Only Intel uses the Socket 478 for their Processors),

One example of a Heatsink/Fan combo for an LGA 775 processor socket,
(Only Intel uses the LGA 775 socket for their Processors),

Remember to observe Anti-Static Precautions, Thoroughly clean the top of the Processor's case, and aplly fresh new thermal paste.
(A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component to Static shock)

[ Example of thermal paste, ]

If you would like advice on how to properly clean the processor's case, properly apply thermal paste, and/or what Anti-Static Precautions are, post in a Comment.
