Question about ASUS P5ND2-SLI Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

Wont post with 1333 fsb

I cant get my bord to even post with an intel core 2 with 1333 fsb. this is the 2nd cpu at 1333 that i have tried. the first was a enginearing sample and so i thought that perhaps that had somthing to do with it. so i bought one from newegg. brandy new and tried to run.....nada. the board has been running a pent D 830 for months now. no major isues. i tried to manually switch to 1333 in bios shut down and changed cpu. nothing still. asus is such a HUGE help they send me the proper way to install cpu and memory e-mail and figure thats all i need, since i dont know my fsb from the hdd. i think theres an isue with the board. it should switch all by itself, correct? any thoughts. i am hoping i have overlooked something. btw so you know i have 500w psu, 4 gig ozc memory. 2 asus 8500gt vid in sli mode. 2 dvd drives,single 125 hdd, 2 case fans. i doubt its a power isue since the pent D uses more power than the core 2. but mabey i am wrong. thanks Scott

    you better double check asus. board fully supports 1333 and quad core, even the new 45nm cpu out now.

    i have tried to reset bios to default 4 times, twice with each different cpu @1333. i have not tried to run down to just 1 stick or ram and 1 video card, but i did on the 1st 1333. still wouldn't even post. now the hdd is currently set up with win xp. and does run fine with 4gigs of ram. though without 64 bit xp it only reads 3. but i need the 1333 duo to run up to win xp pro 64bit. which is what i am waiting for. now it does light up fans whirl into life and the standard audio beep like its going to start, this is all normal when it starts now, just with the 1333. the beep is all i get. no video, no flash screen, not even a flicker of power to make the monitor kick out of sleep. so thats where i am at. but like i said i believe its the board issue.

    no ,no its one board with 2 dif 1333 chips. and i did at first just change the cpu, nada. tried to set bios to 1333 manually, nada. asus finally got back to me and they said it sounds like a fault in the board that won't allow it to switch over. so i think im just gona rma the sucker and see what happens with a new one. thanks any way.

This board wont take a 1333 cpu. The fastest it will run is 1066

This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Pentium / Celeron CPU in LGA775 package with 1066/ 800/ 533MHz FSB, Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.8GHz and beyond.
Make sure your RAM is DDR2 800mhz
The Pentium D830 runs at 800fsb which is in line with the board capabilities.

    Thanks for the correct info. As you say you have already run the D830 on this board (the P5N-E SLI) with no problems. I expect Asus have already checked that the components you are using are on their compatibility list? Particularly the RAM. Maybe you should start right back at the beginning and reset your bios back to the defaults. Check your manual and look for the jumper on the motherboard which resets the bios. Dont do this with the power on or you will mess up your board. Or you could take the CMOS battery out and leave it alone for a couple of hours so that the info it contains drains away. If you were able to press F2 on boot and get into the bios there is a setting in there somewhere which says you can set it back to the default levels. Take out one of the video cards to see if it will boot. If does you may need more power. A good test is to put the bare minimum in it that it needs to start, ie processor and cooler, hdd, basic video one stick of ram, and add devices one by one. Make a note of any beeps it makes if it fails and any screen messages. I am also assuming you are using a blank hard drive. Good luck

    When I said default I meant let the bios choose its own settings. Dont specify anything at all. You say you changed the bios to 1333 before removing the old 830? You really need to put the new parts in and let the bios see them before you try to configure it in advance. It is very unusual to get two boards which wont see the hardware so it probably isnt the motherboard, just the way you are putting the items on it. Have you made sure that the thermal paste is on the chip properly and cleaned it up before applying new? Did you site the chip on the socket in the correct manner. Sounds obvious but its always worth checking every connection and reseating everything. When you have tried what I suggested then get back to me.

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!

Motherboard and CPU

Well anything along the 2ghz line in cpu will do and as long as you get a compitibale motherboard that will be fine. If you want a specific combination the intel BX80557E2220 processor (Core 2 Duo) ans the MSI P31 Neo-F LGA775 Intel P31 1333 FSB DDR2 ATX i personally think is great. Please bear in mind you may also need new RAM for this combi.

1333 fsb duo dore wont post

The board is most likely the first version and will not support the 1333 FSB even if the box says it does. The way to find out is to look at the motherboard for Rev. and notice the revision number. Cross reference the model number and rev no. and you will see it was before they could support the 1333 FSB. Go back to the Pentium D.
