Question about ASUS P5N-E SLI Motherboard
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
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.
