    I have had really good luck with MSI.
    ASUS makes most of the mother board in the world. 
    Current build is a foxconn. Wouldn't; recommend. 
    You pretty much get what you pay for with mother boards. 
    The main thing is to get only what you want . For example if you are not sound crazy do you really want 7.1 sound? What a person intends to use it for is more important. As a builder, I would go with the support available first. Seem to me that the air flow and otr other cooling has been far more important that which boards I use. hope this helps.

Need picture layout and specs fore cg5270

[The above is for Reference, NOT advertising ]

The Asus Essential CG5270 Desktop PC uses the Asus P5QL-VM mobo.

Click on the Download tab.
(Overview / Specifications / Download / etc)

Click on the blue Down Arrow, on the right side of the - Select OS box.
Click on ANY Operating System. You are just after the Manual.

At the bottom of the list click on the + sign, to the left of the blue -
Manuals (7)
Scroll the INSIDE blue scroll bar down, until you see -
Version E4576 - P5QL-VM EPU user's manual (English)

Click on the blue - Global
A small window will come up -

Make SURE there is a Green dot, in the small circle to the left of -
Save File.
If not; left-click once in the small empty circle, to the left of -
Save File.
Now go below in the small window, and click on - OK.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
Another small window will come up.

Go to the far left, and click on - Extract all files
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last small window DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
(E4576_P5QL-VM EPU, next to the red Adobe PDF icon)

There is your motherboard manual in PDF file form.

Motherboard Layout is on Page 1-6
Internal Connectors on Page 1-24
Specs on Page 1-13 for Ram Memory, and Page 1-1 for the motherboard.

Supports Intel;
Core2 Duo, Core2 Quad, and Core2 Extreme processors;
either an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus, 1066MHz FSB, or 1333MHz FSB.

ALL use the Socket T processor socket. (LGA 775 = Same/same)
ALL based on -> Up To the 45nm architecture.
(Means will support Intel Core2 processors that are based on the 65nm architecture, OR 45nm architecture)

The motherboard chipset is an Intel G43 -> Northbridge chip; and an Intel ICH7 -> Southbridge chip.
(Part number on Southbridge chip is Intel 82801GB)

THIS, is according to the following website,

I don't think so.

The Intel G43 - Northbridge chip, is usually matched up with the Intel ICH10, or ICH10R - Southbridge chip,

Scroll down to G43 in the left column.
(Past G35 and P45)

[Part number of ICH10 and ICH10R, is Intel 82801JB, and Intel 82801JR; respectively, ]

However, suggest you use the free tiny program CPU-Z, from, and find out what motherboard chipset is used,

[ When CPU-Z is opened it automatically opens to the CPU tab.
Clicking on the Mainboard tab gives you information on the Motherboard.
If you need help in downloading, installing, or using CPU-Z, post back in a Comment ]

B) Ram Memory:
DDR2 Sdram.
240 gold plated contact pins. 120 on each side.
One Locating Notch.

Reputed to use 800MegaHertz up to 1333MHz.
(800MHz, 1066Mhz, and 1333Mhz)

However it MATTERS on what Processor you are using.
Ram Memory typically operates at half of the Frequency Rate ('Speed'), of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB)

Since the Intel G43 came out in 2008, it stands to reason that the PCI Express technology is PCI Express 2.0

Can i put dual core processors in my intel se7505vb2 motherboard?

Page 16 of the Technical Product Specification guide;

3.1.1 Processor Support
"The Intel Server Board SE7505VB2 supports one or two processors in the 604-pin FCPGA package."

-> Socket 604,

-> Intel XEON processors ONLY

"When two processors are installed, all Processors MUST be of identical revision, core voltage, and bus/core speed."

-> Means you really should use two IDENTICAL processors.

"When only one Processor is installed, it should be in the socket labeled CPU1, and the other socket must be empty."

-> Self-explanatory.
That's the processor socket furthest away from the black AGP graphics expansion slot, and closest to the outside edge of the motherboard.
(Page 104, and 105)

ONLY supports Intel Xeon processors with a 400MHz, or 533MHz FSB.

Dual-Core Xeon's start at 667MHz, and wouldn't work anyway; due to different Core architecture, and Instruction Sets.

667MHz, 800MHz, 1066MHz, and 1333MHz, for dual core Xeon's,

(Scroll down just a touch, to get the Wikipedia 'banner' out of the way, or click on it's X)

Scroll down the page, look at the charts. Starts with 800MHz FSB for Dual Core, then goes 667MHz, 800MHz, 1066MHz, and 1333MHz, Front Side Bus.

Use Dual Core processors?


Two Single-Core processors.

Product Guide for the Intel Server Board SE7505VB2,
(Motherboard manual),

The above is a direct link to the PDF file, motherboard manual.
If it doesn't work just by clicking on it, then copy it; and paste it in your browser address bar. Press the Enter key.

(This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above link, or press the Enter key; it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

Didn't want you to wait a few seconds, and think nothing is happening)

Motherboard start new cpu

CPU Support List

Intel Core2 Duo - Model Q9400
1) Yorkfield Core technology
2) Built on the 45nm architecture
3) Natively uses a 1333MegaHertz Front Side Bus, (1333MHz FSB)

4) BIOS version -> F14

Uses the Intel P965 motherboard chipset,

Hmmm, states support for -> 65nm architecture processors

The Q9400 is based on the 45nm architecture.
I'm guessing the F14 BIOS version will allow support.

The voltage range of a Q9400 is .085 to 1.3625 Volts (DC)

What is the 'old' processor model number, and do you know the voltage range?

Did you get the Q9400 from a reputable source?

Have you been following Anti-Static Precautions?

Using CPU-Z from, and the old processor installed, is F14 reputed to be the BIOS version that is installed? Just want to make sure.

Sometimes it takes 3 to 4 times of a 'Hard Start', for BIOS to recognize a new Processor.
(Computer turned all the way off, not Restart. WAIT 1 minute, turn back on. Hard Start )

Still no?
What is the frequency rate ('Speed') of the DDR2 Sdram ram memory, you have installed?

My core 2 duo E6550 does not work on my foxconn g41mxe motherboard

Motherboard supports Processors with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of either 800Megahertz, or 1066MHz.

1333MHz FSB support is done with OVERCLOCKING.

Intel Core2 Duo E6550 processor has a 1333MHz FSB.

I reduced the view size to 120 percent. Go to Page 27.
Press DELete key to enter BIOS Setup.

Use Down Arrow key to highlight - Fox Central Control Unit
Press the Enter key

CPU Frequency Setting should be set to 333 (333MHz)
Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
333MHz x 4 = Approximately 1333MHz. (1332)

Note the version of the BIOS program also.

Upgrade d33006 mobo

That isn't the model number of the motherboard.

It is on the motherboard usually towards the middle, on a GigaByte.

Starts with GA- and letter/numbers.

Usually in the middle of the motherboard, but may be on one edge, or in-between expansion slots, such as the white long PCI slots.

If you cannot find it, and the motherboard is operational, and the computer is internet ready, use Belarc Advisor for free,

When you find it use the Gigabyte CPU Support List,

[ I personally would use CPU-Z. MUCH more detailed info.

You need to know;

A) What processor socket is on the motherboard?

B) What motherboard chipset?

C) What BIOS version, and date, would help.

1) Processor socket:
No brainer. The processor has to fit in the processor socket, and the processor socket must support THAT processor.

[ Power, Signal, and Ground socket holes, must match up to the Power, Signal, and Ground, contact pins of the Processor.
Or other way around if the processor socket has the contact pins ]

2) Motherboard chipset:

I'm just guessing this isn't a motherboard that supports Intel Core i processors. Therefore the motherboard chipset has a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

[ AGP and PCI-Express are High-speed graphics technology.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Integrated graphics is Not high-speed graphics either ]

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

A) IDE devices
B) SATA devices
D) Ethernet
E) Audio (Sound)

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

Let's use an example of an Intel motherboard chipset. An Intel 945GC,

Here we see the Processors supported in the chart. We also see the Front Side Bus support. (FSB)
It's 800MegaHertz. (800MHz)

You also see the Process Support. 65nm
(nm stands for NanoMeter. One billionth of a meter )

Let's say I wanted to use the best Processor, that this motherboard chipset will support.

That would be an Intel Core2 Duo that is based on the 65nm architecture, and has an 800MHz FSB.

I would then look at a chart for the processor that is currently being used, and see what it's Voltage Range is.

From the above information, I would know that if the processor I want to use, has the same voltage range.

1) Fits the Processor socket

2) Has same Process Support. (nm architecture)

3) Has no more than an 800MHz FSB.

4) Falls within the same voltage range as the current processor being used ]

Awaiting motherboard model number. Post back in a Comment.

No, the one you want will not work simply because it's too powerful for the board and will not be recognized. Here you can find all supported processors
as you can see the only ones for your mobo are Q6600 and Q6700.

1333 FSB processor ( E6850 ) on a 1066 FSB motherboard, DDR2 667 memory

Hi proenza. you're making good sence! You're D945GCL MB should be able to run 1066 FSB. Not 100% sure you're memory will keep FSB up to 1066.
Here's the trouble though. The Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 will not run on the Intel D945GCL motherboard because it is not supported. Look here at Intel's web site. Supported CPU's.

Intel E6850 specs sheet.

Intel E6700 spec sheet.

This CPU is supported by the D945GCL MB.

Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 Processor BX80557E4700 - 2.60GHz.

In order to get 1066MHz (CPU can run at), you'll also need the memory support at 800MHz. The D945GCL MB can only run DDR2-667MHz.
Many people buy a CPU to run MB's specs (1333MHz) just to find the same MB does not support DDR2-1066MHz or DDR2-800MHz. Motherboard Mfg's are lagging. DDR3-1333MHz is out there now to support the 1333 MHz CPU FSB.

I hope this has helped you make a decision proenza.

Good Luck!
