Dear rjb2

This motherboard supports only up to 1066 FSB (at pcb version 2.0)
The quad core FSB is 1333 therefore it is impossible to use that CPU. I would ask around at the forums or at ASUS if their is any solution. (such as firmware)

Needupgrading my cpu


ztz198,

On the top of every Intel processor is the sSpec Number, and the part number.

Intel Core2 Quad, that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 2.66GigaHertz,.........hmmm,

Gateway Support indicates if the option is a Core2 Quad core, it will use Up To a 1333MegaHertz, Front Side Bus frequency rate, ('Speed'),

[1333MHz FSB]

http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4822/DX4822sp2.shtml

That 'narrows' it down to about 6 different processors.

Starting with the Yorkfield-6M Core technology, based on the 45NanoMeter architecture. (45nm),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Yorkfield-6M.22_.2845_nm.29

1) Core2 Quad Q8400
2) Core2 Quad Q8400S
3) Core2 Quad Q9400
4) Core2 Quad Q9400S

Then on to the Yorkfield Core technology, based on the 45nm architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

5) Core2 Quad Q9450
6) Core2 Quad Q9450S

The maximum frequency rate of 2.66GHz, is actually a low estimate. It is a little higher, and rounded off to 2.67GHz.

BIOS Setup might state 2.66GHz, but a better program like CPU-Z, IMHO; will state 2.67GHz. A more realistic figure.

Does it REALLY matter? Yes, and No.

This way when you get into a conversation, with fellow minded computer geeks, you will stand out as one who knows; what hardware components he/she is using.

Also helps you determine what voltage range is being used.
What Instruction Sets are being used.
What technology is being used, and use it to know if the upgrade CPU will indeed work.
Also whether a BIOS upgrade is needed.

I'm guessing it is the Intel Core2 Quad Q8400.

How?

I cheated, lol!,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113110

Intel Core2 Quad Extreme at a maximum frequency rate of 2.93GHz?
That would be the Intel Core2 Quad Extreme QX6300,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

Based on the Kentsfield XE technology, and 65nm architecture.
Uses a 1066MHz FSB.

Motherboard chipset is the Intel G43,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

(Scroll down. Is not in 'alphabetical order'. It is past the P45, and G41 )

Yep. Should work.

Makes me wonder though, about how you addressed the Thermal Paste; situation.

The old Thermal Paste MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned off, and fresh, new Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.
CANNOT reuse old Thermal Paste.

CANNOT reuse a Thermal Pad, IF used.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Do I also assume the inside of the computer case is spotlessly clean, to include the Heatsink sitting on the CPU; and the cooling fan for it?

Heatsink was sit on CPU flat?
Cannot be even a little tilted.

For this reason I remove the motherboard, and install Heatsink.
Then I can hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.

If a tiny crack of light shows on one side edge, of the Heatsink; then the Heatsink is NOT sitting flat.

This = No.

Four screws with springs on them, hold the Heatsink to CPU, Joe?
Yes. I know. This is so you cannot over-tighten the Heatsink to CPU.

You CAN however keep tightening, until the motherboard breaks, though. (Jus sayin')

However, if the screws are not tightened in a crisscross fashion, and tightened in incremental stages; the Heatsink may not be sitting flat.

Will await reply before going further. Post back in a Comment.

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 with a 945GCT-M3? Will it work?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=719&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

Here you can see the supported cpu list.

The quad core cpu will not run on this mainboard.

Here is info about the quad cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36547/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8200-4M-Cache-2_33-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB

But you can add a Intel Core 2 Extreme LGA775
This should give a noteable difference compares to the old single core cpu.

Remember also to buy a bigger cpu cooling element.

Here is no upgrade for the bios.


Good luck

I hav pc with asus mother board P5LD2-VM & INTEL CPU P4 3.06GHZ (1MB) IT OFTEN RESTARTS AND SHOW OVERLOCKING FAILED


are you using a new psu?
is the motherboard an upgrade?
have you got your psu settings right for the motherboard?
can you use your bios settings to make sure that you do not have too much power going into motherboard.

P5ld2-vm problem


go to "bios settings" by pressing "delete" key or F2 at the system start up time .. after going in to bios then search for the options load optimal defaults ....then save it and exit ..
after that restart ...

now have a check if your problem persists then the processor which you have choosed might not support the motherboard specification the frequency of the processor is higher than the specified rate .. check here for the details of the processor which supports your motherboard

P5LD2 DOES NOT PWR ON AFTER INSTALLING CONROE 6700. GREEN STAND BY LED LIGHT IS ON...BUT DOES NOT POWER ON FURTHER THAN THAT. IT WORKED FINE WITH MY P4 HT. WHAT GIVES


Check your motherboard version. Note:
Only PCB R2.0(or higher) support Intel® Core™2 processor

You should find the information between the pci slots Or close to the asus heatsink next to the cpu.
Its quite small text, eg 1.01 1.0 2.0 etc.

If the number is difrent from R2.0 or 2.0 then your motherboard does not support the cpu.

If it is so then you have to change to a difrent motherboard.

Slow data transfer rate


Do you have this Bios version? P5LD2-VM BIOS version 1303
Support new CPU's. Please refer to Asus website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx
Your board came out around June-2005 so improvements are here. I'm not saying its all about the CPU & FSB but it may help.
