Question about Gigabyte GA-K8VT800 Motherboard
ADA3700AEP5AP co stepping 3700 Clawhammer engineering sample...
Hi guys, bought this chip of ebay as working. Got told my PSU (400w) is under powered so got a new one thermaltake 750W 18a x4 rails its an old AMD socket 754. MoBo is a Ga-k8vt800 rev 1 with f13 bios (had f8 then updated to f13,latest). Gigabyte site says only the Newcastle chip is supported, i know ppl (online) who have the MoBo with the clawhammer in, and working.
The hhd and power lights flicker but wont boot.
Is it the co stepping not supported? who can update a bios to support it? And if its a test chip how did they run it originally?
System is; Ga-k8vt800 rev 1 with f13 bios
7600 gs 512mb video
40gb and 80gb hhd's
2 dvd burners
current cpu AMD 2800 works fine
I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.
