P4PE-X Motherboard bus speed

I have a P4PE-X board, P4 2.8mhz HT Processor ,3x256 3200u 400 DDR clk3 memory. I cannot get the bus to run at 800, it only runs at 200. also in windows xp pro I cant run Hardware acceleration or 3D with my video card which is ATI Radeon 9800 pro128 AGP /DV

Re: P4PE-X Motherboard bus speed


I have the same motherboard and did a little reading. The chipset on these motherboards was not really designed for the 800MHz, but it was still used by ASUS anyways. I have reduced the FSB speed on my system for increased stability. Here is the posting from another site which I found.

The 845PE Northbridge was designed for FSB400/FSB533 processors,using DDR266/DDR333 memory. (See page 11 in the Intel spec.)

No matter how many different models of this motherboard that
Asus made, it is still based on the 845PE. Operation at FSB800
with DDR400 memory constitutes overclocking, and overclocking
comes with no guarantees (only Intel can test the chips and
bin them for speed, and the chips are not tested at FSB800/DDR400, so Asus has no way of knowing how far they can be pushed).

I've read descriptions of other people's luck with the 845PE
and it is described as "I can set the clock to 200MHz and
not a stitch more". That means even in the best case, there is
absolutely no margin left. The fact that your board runs stable
at 190MHz, instead of 200MHz, should not be a surprise, as Intel only has to guarantee the chips work at 133MHz (for FSB533).

The sin being committed here, is the user manual should state
that "overclocking comes with no guarantees". Persons interested in buying FSB800 processors, should be buying a P4P800/P4C800 or equivalent board, as the Northbridge chips on boards like that are guaranteed by Intel to run at FSB800.

If you want rock solid operation, pair a 3.06/FSB533/512K
Northwood processor with the 845PE Northbridge.

I need RAM for an Intel E210882 D865GBF motherboard (DIMM, single notch more or less in the middle of the board). What do I need?

It appears your board was manufactured sometime around 2003.
It has supported front side bus speed of 800, 533, and 400 MHz, and has a capacity of up to 4GB Dual Channel DDR 400 MHz (PC3200), 333 MHz (PC2700), and 266 MHz (PC2100).

Note: Be sure to review important memory and system bus speed considerations before using this desktop board
Hope this helps.

Hi, i was windering if it was possible to use 168 pins pc133 memory modules instead of the ddr 266 into my P4B266 Motherboard, since they have the same size and work at the same frequency. In the manual,...

*********** board will suport for 133 bus speed memory.Memory Size is not the matter,what ever you can install in the mother board,may be 128/256/512,but ensure the bus speed .It wont be more than 133 mhz.,then your mobo can not support.If you have SDR 133 bus speed ram you can install .
*********** board speed is 400 mhz,you can change 478 pin any intel processor,for better performence but the bus speed would be 400 mhz or bellow 400mhz,both will be suported.

For detail follow bellow the link.

Hope it will you.

Power on ok but no display. ram not detect

First disable the onboard VGA then put in a known good AGP graphics card to see if you can get through the POST if your BIOS i rejects the RAM chips it should give you a short series of beeps this would indicate that the memory is not compatible as a rule of thumb PC2700 speed memory is for a motherboard and processor with a 133Mhz FSB this is quaded to 533MHz. you can usually place faster memory but not slower memory look at the table below for rated Frontside Bus Speeds.

CPU FSB DDR DIMM Type Memory Frequency
800 MHz PC3200/PC2700*/PC2100 400/333*/266 MHz (min busspeed 200Mhz)
533 MHz PC2700/PC2100 333/266 MHz (min busspeed 133Mhz)
400 MHz PC2100 266 MHz (min busspeed 100Mhz)

No. DDR replaced the SD in RAM so SDRAM and DDR RAM are two completely different things but each ram type has its own frequency hence you get SDRAM 100(mhz) and SDRAM 133(Mhz) just like you get DDR 1 RAM at 266(mhz) and 400(mhz) and DDR 2 RAM at 533(mhz) and 800(mhz). Therefore as you can see how these things differ, but if your mboard takes SDRAM that it can take and frequency of SDRAM but you must ensure that all the frequencies of all your RAM modules in all your slots correspond otherwise you will have problems, meaning that if you decide to use 133mhz RAM then all your RAM modules that you use must be the same. Let me know how you go. thanks

Problem qdi p4i865 pro

Check your manual and find the QVL list. Memory tested to work in your board is listed there. I found a link that shows your board. Click the Download on the left & check your manual.
You Max speed is 400Mhz memory as you will see at the link.
