1 Answer

P4MAM-L with CPU P2.4GHz runs at 1.2GHz only

MoBo P4MAM-L does not recognize CPU P4 2.4GHZ correctly = in BIOS only FSB100 is offered an system runs with 1.2GHz (2x1.2 - HT) is there a solution available to get the cpu to run at 2.4Ghz?
technical details:
MoBo=P4MAM-L
BIOS=v1.2 (latest available)
CPU=Northwood Hyperthreading 2.4GHz
Cache=512kB
Stepping=D1

    things done so far:



    tried to use jumper JP1 (Enable support for un-/locked CPU) = no success

    tried MSI FuzzyLogic4 = no success

    reset BIOS and removed CMOS-battery = no success



    thanks for any more ideas :-)

Reset your motherboard BIOS. Open your computer casing where the motherboard lies in and then find the bios setting jumper, it should be located near the battery. To reset your bios, refer to the motherboard manual. :-)

MSI RS482M4 Mobo not recognizes USB port on XP SP2-3 boot.


Try to find application that load the CPU at 100% by seeing TASKMANAGER.

To start TASKMANAGER press CTRL+ALT+DEL on the keyboard, select PROCESSES TAB, click on CPU to order by CPU load and find process that come near to 100%.

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.

System freeze for a few second then back to normal


have you tried running benchmark software with both the 5600 and the 6000? if you run say aquamark or 3dmark 06 or 07 and compare the scores you will see which is faster then what... if the 5600 is in fact showing that its faster then you may have to update your bios so it recognizes the new cpu some mobos i have messed with had this problem but after flashing the bios it corrected the issue esp if the cpu was released say a year later from when the mobo was released. make sure you have amd driver software installed too this gives you a performance boost if you install the amd driver software rather then running windows drivers that automaticly installs on your computer when you install windows most forget about the drivers for the cpu because only recently amd started making drivers available directly from their sites. here is the link

make sure you download the model series you have in your computer

P5NT won't boot


I went throught this and it is really silly. The P5N-T motherboard has a problem with some of the new energy efficient CPUs. The fix was to insert an older CPU and upgrade the bios and then it would recognize the new CPU. If you happen not to have an older 775 CPU laying around (most people do not), it might be easiest to return it and get a different board - or maybe the store can upgrade the bios for you.

you should be able to press F2 or Del on boot up to get into the bios, but you should replace the battery first then set everything up as the cmos has obviously lost it's saved settings because the battery is flat.
