SOURCE: dual core 2.8ghz processor not supported for intel 946gzis motherboard can u give me the suggestion ?

1) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components of a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

A Processor is the MOST susceptible hardware component to Static Shock.

2) Clean the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink THOROUGHLY.

Start with a plastic scraping device, (Old credit card?), and scrape off as much of the old Thermal Paste as you can.

If there is a Thermal Pad, carefully peel it off, throw it away. CANNOT be reused.
Scrape with the plastic scraper.

Follow with Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol. (Rubbing alcohol)
91 percent is best, but 70 will do.
May take a LOT of alcohol dipped Q-tips as it's usually a gooey mess.
MUST be clean enough when you are done, that you could literally eat off of it.

Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present.

Thermal paste has to be PROPERLY applied.
NOTE about thermal paste that contains real silver.
(One example Artic Silver 5 )

Silver is an excellent conductor of heat. Will transfer the heat from the Processor to Heatsink very well.
Silver is also an excellent conductor of Electricity.

IF you apply too much it will ooze off of the Processor, once the Processor reaches operating temperature.
Will ooze onto the pins of the processor, or pins of the processor socket.
Will ooze down on solder joints.
Result is Short Circuit.

(If this has transpired, follow Anti-Static Precautions, remove Heatsink, and Processor, use alcohol dipped Q-tips to remove all thermal paste, start over. Sometimes you can get to it in time, and nothing is permanently damaged )

It is really best to install the Processor with the motherboard removed.
Reasoning is that you can hold the motherboard flat, up to your eyes, and look across it.
See if the Heatsink is sitting perfectly flat, or there is a crack of daylight showing in-between the Processor, and Heatsink

Heatsink on Processor MUST be sitting flat.

3) Watch power cable to Processor fan. I have had a few where one of the pin connections in the power cable's connector, pushed out a little.
Doing so meant the wire to that pin, was NOT plugged all the way in.
The pin in the power cable, did not plug all the way into the 'connector tube', of the Processor fan cable's connector.

('Connector tube' = Molex metal female terminal, )

This means the Processor fan will run intermittently, or not at all.
Result is overheating of the Processor.

4) Make sure the Processor fan wires are plugged into the motherboard.
Computer case open, computer turned on, watch the Processor fan. Make sure it is spinning, and seems to be spinning at the correct RPM's. (Revolutions Per Minute)

I installed the Gigabyte 870A-UD3 Motherboard and AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Quad Core CPU in a computer for my Grandson. It seems to be working with one exception. The processor is idling at 800...

Personally I don't like sites that try to install drivers for you. sometimes they do all right but , sometimes they may install generic updates that don't work or make matters worse. A prime example, is if you try to update a driver for a graphics card. Your best bet for driver updates is to get them from the manufacturer of the software.
This is Gigabytes link for downloads. There are a couple of different options depending on your revision.
You also have AMD chipsets and, I'm guessing, an ATI/AMD graphics card. I'm not familiar with "darksider so if you can give me the model number of your card I can help you further or, if you know how to enter info definately get your card updtaes through here:

Like to replace my processor which is AMD Duron 900MHz to Motherboard Gigabyte 7VM333M-RZ. Which current processors are compatible with this board? Please advise. I want a current fast processor.

Hi, As far as I can see, this motherboard is very old, and the faster processor you could get would be around 1.8 ghz, single core. Here's the list of supported processors:
What I would suggest is that you buy a motherboard/cpu combo, then you could get a quad core with a recent motherboard for less than 150-200$. Of course you'd have to be willing to change your motherboard, but unfortunately, you're not gonna get a good processor with your current motherboard, and computer parts (like Ram, hard drives, video cards) are going to cost more and more for their rarety, while they are less performant.
Best of luck to you!

HI ! I bought a new AMD phenom quad-core 9750 2.40ghz processor and Gigabyte motherboard. I m unable to install Windows and the system automatically shuts down every 20 min and sometimes runs for more...

This processor need better cooling system as it is powerful it need more power so I suggest you to upgrade your Power Supply and buy more efficient processor fan cooler. Also you should check if processor is properly installed on motherboard and there should be some special thermal grease between processor and motherboard ( for better thermal conductivity

GA-8I915ME-C. Than I checked the CPU supported link;

I have gigabyte series g31 m-es2L i want use memory pc 5300.... it's support with this mainboard ???? tx pls reply to :


First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number

Cpu to support sse2

Highest model cpu your board can support is the AMD Athlon XP model 3200. This is not a dual core cpu. You would need to upgrade to a newer motherboard in order to use a dual or quad core cpu. Hope this helps.
