Question about Evga (122-CK-NF68-T1) Motherboard

1 Answer

Is my CPU fried?

I had a evga 680 sli with 2.4 intel quad core 6600. My cooling system died and I smelled burning.
Got a new cpu fan and retried to start. Got a "--" error code so I replaced the MB to a evga 780 sli. Did total install and tried to powerup. Got a "FF" error code (Boot), no beeps and no display at all.
Do I need to replace my CPU or should I try something aelse before having to pull it all apart again?

If it was your cpyu, you wouldnt get error codes or beeps. perhaps the problem is your power supply or bad ram.

Evga sr 2 only will go on one processor.what to do.


Download, and install CPU-Z (From CPUID.com), if you have not already.

Open CPU-Z

Now multitask with your computer.........

Open your email.........look at a video on YouTube........stay on here.....

Get several threads going at the same time.

Or play an intensive game.....

Now look at the CPU tab on CPU-Z

See how both Processor cores are now running?

That is for a dual core processor. It's going to take a bunch more for a quad core.

Using a dual core processor for searching the internet, or watching videos; is like using a fuel dragster to run down to the store.

You need multiple threads open, to get the second core to kick in.
Apply to a quad core also.

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=719&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36547/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8200-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.


Good luck

Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI + Q9400 + BIOS16 = wrong CPU temp + noisy fan


I notice that the solution from myself was posted as a comment. This may prevent some from locating it. I reposted as a solution under a different name. Hopefully it would help those have the similar problem.

In addition to the following solution, you may also set the CPU core voltage to your CPU specification. My Q9400 VCore specification is 0.85~1.3625V. The BIOS auto setting sets it at 1.1625V. I just manually set it to 1.3625. CPUZ shows that C1E and stepping will lower it as necessary. It should provide the CPU more juice when it needs it, while keeps it cool when it is idle.

---------
Ok, this is myself (Recnelis). I may find the solution for this problem. The trick is to use the beta BIOS 18 and increase the "CPU VTT Voltage" in the BIOS "SoftMenu Setup".

The beta BIOS 18 could be found here:

http://forums.hexus.net/abit-care-hexus/149415-bios-updates-intel-e0-stepping.html

To make the long story short, BIOS 16 is relatively stable for Q9400 but could not recognize the CPU correctly. BIOS 18 (beta) can recognize the CPU correctly but is very unstable - random application crashes, blue screen, freeze, etc.

Here is some "history" about the issue. Fatal1ty FP-in9 SLI uses nVidia 650i SLI. If you google "nVidia 650i 45nm quad core", you will find a lot of people has the similar issue. Many websites suggest that it is because of the difference between the release version of the Intel 45nm quad core and the one sent to nVidia for testing (due to that nVidia turned off Intel's request for acquiring its SLI technology according to some rumors). Some forums suggest voltage is among those differences.

In the BIOS, you may notice that the voltage settings in the "SoftMenu Setup" are different from the actual voltages in the "PC Health Status". In my case, the actual voltages are similar but lower than the settings. One exception is the "CPU VTT Voltage". The BIOS automatically set it at 1.2V, while the actual voltage in the "PC Health Status" shows it is only a little above 1.0V. That is more than 16% drop. 1.0V is too low to keep the system stable. Guys in o/c world usualy increase the "CPU VTT Voltage" up to 1.5V to keep the system stable. Since I'm not o/c'ing my system, I do not go that far. For my particular case, when I set it to 1.31V in the "SoftMenu Setup", the actual voltage in the "PC Health Status" is 1.2V, which is what the auto setting trys to do. For your system, you may want to increase the setting one notch at a time to safely increase the actual voltage reading.

Before this tweak, my system cannot even run more than 30 minutes under BIOS 18. After this small tweak (under BIOS 18), my system becomes a whole lot more stable (no crash so far after a few days of using). It passed RealTemp torture test (using Prim95) many many times without a single hiccup. I tried to post this at least one week after the system runs in stable status; but I think some of you may still be searching for the solution.

More good news for those who want to keep the Fatal1ty IN-FP9 SLI/Q9400 for a while: I even installed Windows 7 RC (build 7100) with the new nVidia Windows 7 mobo driver and graphic driver. Everything is running smoothly so far.

Good luck to your tweaking.

Msi p4n sli board


The Only CPU's that board supports are:

  • Supports 90nm LGA775 processor package
  • Supports Intel Pentium Processor Extreme Edition
  • Supports Intel Pentium D Smithfield processors
  • Supports Intel Pentium 4 / Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processors
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology ready

  • So sadly no I am sorry. However it does Support a P4 with HT which is still a very nice CPU

    You should really check these things first or consult the motherboard documentation which lists in great detail what the board supports

    Get yourself a new manual if youve lost the one that came with it

    ftp://ftp.abitshop.com/pub//manual/english/ip-95.zip

    And to answer your problem , no you cant have a quad core

    your specification says

    "CPU - LGA775 Socket for Intel Core 2 Duo/ Pentium D/ Pentium 4/ Celeron D/ Celeron Processors with 1066 MHz FSB - Supports Intel Hyper-Threading Technology "

    It would say "Intel Core 2 Quad" if you could

    Try powering it up and it will probably either:-

    a)Overheat
    b)Spark and set on fire if theres not enough cooling
    c) Cause a power cut , Quad cores take more power than the boards designed to support , otherwise they would have said i t supported quad cores.
    d)Fry up the motherboard , making it useless
    e)Fry up the processor , making it useless
    f) all of the above
