P4 2.66GHz 533FSB Problem on Gigabyte GA-8ID533

I have been running a Pentium 4 2.0GHz 400MHz FSB processor on a Gigabyte GA-8ID533 (1.1) board. I wanted to upgrade my processor and went on Gigabyte's website to look at compatible processors. I bought a Pentium 4 Northwood 2.66GHz 533MHz FSB Processor online as the website shows this processor as compatible, and tried to install the processor. When I tried to boot up, i get a blank screen, no beeps, just the fan running. When I replace the original processor, everything runs fine. The stats on the GA-8ID533 show that max FSB is 400MHz, but prcessor compatibility searches online show that there are a numer of 533MHz Bus Pentium 4's and Celerons that will work. Do i need to change the BIOS or CMOS Settings proir to installation? I have already updated the bios to F4.

Please help!!

Nead to replace my motherboard ga-k8vm800m

So you need a motherboard that has a Socket 754 processor socket, supports AMD socket 754 processors with up to an 800MHz FSB, uses DDR Sdram 400MHz ram memory, (PC3200), and has an AGP graphics slot.

From a quick search just now I see a lot of them listed on Ebay.
NOT advertising for Ebay.
I saw other listings on the internet also. (GA-K8N51GMF-RH - Way too pricey!)

I want to know that shall i put pentium 4/ 2.4 Ghz/ 533 Fsb/ Processor on this Gigabyte 845GVM-RZ board? will it support ?and i have 1 Gb ddr1 400 mhz ram will this work on this Board?


Yes for the Intel Pentium 4/2.4GHz/533FSB processor. (Socket 478)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

(Scroll through. What sSpec number is on top of the processor's case? {You are following Anti-Static Precautions, correct? }

Won't support better than a Prescott Core Pentium 4. (Next chart down)

The Gigabyte GA-8I ((Supports 400MHz or 533MHz FSB)

NO to the Ram Memory.
The Gigabyte GA-8I845GVM-RZ supports DDR Sdram at 333Mhz. (PC2700)
IMHO it will not support DDR Sdram at 400MHz. (PC3200)

My reasoning is this;

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate of the Processor.

Processor FSB > MAXIMUM frequency rate is 533MegaHertz for the GA-8I845GVM-RZ
Ram memory at 333MHz is doable.
Not 400MHz.

No, you won't be able to overclock, and bring the FSB of the Processor high enough for PC3200 Ram Memory.
(The rest of the motherboard wouldn't work anyway if you did. PCI Express bus, PCI bus, etc., would not match)

I have a soyo SY-P4VSA motherboard with a Intel Pentium 4 2.0 ghz CPU...socket 478..FSB 400mhz. I want to install a socket 478 Pentium 4 2.2ghz processor with 400mhz FSB. Is this compatible?


Yes it's compatible. The best you could probably upgrade to would be a socket 478 Pentium 4 2.8 ghz 400mhz fsb. Hope this helps.

Will my motherboard support a Core 2 Duo processor: GA-8S649MF (Gigabyte Motherboard)


Every system needs a rock-solid foundation, and that's just what you get with this Gigabyte GA-8S649MF motherboard. It features Socket 775 compatibility and support for Intel Pentium 4 or Pentium Dual-Core processors with 800 MHz front side bus speeds. Two DIMM slots support up to 2 GB of DDR400 system memory.

Upgraded cpu- wont boot


Teresa, if you changed the front side bus to 533, your memory must have the same clock speed. Memory clock speeds are what is known as "backwards compatible" but not forwards. This means that you could put a piece of memory of a clock speed of 400mhz into a system that runs at 333mhz and it will "downclock" the memory, but you could not put a piece of 333mhz memory in a 400mhz fsb pc and expect it to run. one of two things will happen, the system will not boot at all or the syetm will downclock the processor to a slower speed. In your case your cpu must be 533mhz clock speed with pc4200/533mhz memory to function correctly.
