Question about Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Hi, I have a ThinkCentre A51 Series Type 8122KQF system with a Pentium 4 (533MHz FSB) processor on an IBM Barbados motherboard. I would like to upgrade to 4GB RAM(2x2GB to utilize dual channel). What is the maximum RAM speed i can go for? Currently i have a 256MB, DDR2, 533Mhz, Class4 single chip. But I hope my motherboard supports better. I am a bit confused regarding the RAM speeds since i am replacing a single chip with 2 now. What would be the maximum speed supported, for each of these chips?

FSB speed is what the RAM works at. If you get faster RAM that is ok, it will work but only at the FSB speed. If you get slower RAM then it works at the slower speed or may cause issues.

    Hi Brad, Thanks for your quick reply. I just want some more clarification regarding something related to this. Suppose if i am going for 2 533Mhz chips, Should both the chips have the same speed(i.e; 533 Mhz),? Or should the 533 Mhz speed be split among the 2 chips..?

  • Brad Brown Nov 30, 2013

    Keep them the same speed.

Yes, your board will support 320gb. I am not aware of a limit to how many gigabytes you can have per computer. I currently have 1.5 terabytes. 1500gb.

make sure that you don't need to overclock your setting (in BIOS ) so as to get full ddr3 frequency.That it, you need to overclock your CPU speed and if you want to work at great speed, try you upgrade you processor.
try a core 2 duo or a quad-core and make sure that it matches with your FSB, with maximum L catch ( 12 mb)

Cpu suport


Going with problem heading stating ->

IBM 73P0595 motherboard > CPU Support > and previous problem statement ->
"I have updated my processor from INTEL Pentium d 820,2800mzh 1500mzh to INTEL Pentium d 945,3400mzh....."

Let's take a look at the IBM 73P0595 motherboard specifications, first;

http://www.epinions.com/specs/IBM_System_Boad_W_O_POV_10_100_73P0595_Motherboard?sb=1

A) Socket 478 processor socket

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Intel 865G motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

The Intel 865G motherboard chipset DOES NOT support dual core processors.
Does NOT support an Intel Pentium D; 820 OR 945

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_D_microprocessors#.22Smithfield.22_.2890_nm.29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_D_microprocessors#.22Presler.22_.2865_nm.29

Those two processors also use the LGA 775 processor socket.
(Socket T,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T )

What did you base your CPU support on?
Was it the fact that the Intel 865G motherboard chipset, will support Intel Celeron D?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron_D#Celeron_D

The Intel Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron_D#Celeron_D

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families.

The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core.

It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M......"

Not the IBM 73P0595 motherboard we're talking about?

OK.

Let's just base it on the statement that you tried to upgrade, from an Intel Pentium D820 to an Intel Pentium D945,

http://www.fixya.com/support/t13549945-update_intel_pentium_d_945_procesor

What motherboard are you using?
Motherboard in a HP Compaq DC7600 Desktop PC?

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML

Scroll down to the bold subheading -> Processor and Speed

Intel Pentium D820 at 2800MegaHertz (2.8GigaHertz),
with 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus, is supported.
(800MHz FSB)

Probably came with your computer, huh?

Intel Pentium D945 at 3400MHz (3.4GHz), with 800MHz FSB is supported also.

This can be seen by the specifications of the motherboard chipset, also. The Intel 945G motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

Scroll down to 945G in the left column. (Last one listed in chart)

Apparently you just needed the 786D family Processor Microcode Update, or did that not work out?

Awaiting reply,
Regards,

(How did I come up with the HP Compaq DC7600, anyway?
Did you add it in a Comment, and it has been removed, or what?

IBM 8123 not powering on the problem is the start up fan is running continuously.


Hello Dear,

If the Startup FAN is running, means the Power is going to your motherboard and other components. SMPS seems OK. You should check the display cable and CMOS Battery.
Just try to pull out the battery and Make the machien switch ON. (Don't forget to Check the display cable is connected or not).
If it is then means your CMOS battaery is faulty one.

Most major manufactures use motherboard designed to their specs and upgrades to the processor are limited. You can use software such as Belarc Advisor, to determine what motherboard you have and then you can search the net to determine what processors are compatible with it.
