Question about EliteGroup ECS 945GCT-M/1333 Motherboard - v3.0, Intel 945GC, Socket 775, MicroATX, Audio, Video, PCI Express

1 Answer

1333 FSB processor ( E6850 ) on a 1066 FSB motherboard, DDR2 667 memory

Mi question is:
Will the processor work at 1066 FSB? or the Mobo ( Intel D945GCL )will break?

Is a matter of money, the E6850 cost $185.00, the E6700 cost $250.00

If the E6850 works ( at the same rate as the E6700 ), then I will save money.

Does it make any sense?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

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 E6700 spec sheet. http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Intel-Core-2-Duo-E6700-2-67Ghz

This CPU is supported by the D945GCL MB.

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!

Mike

My core 2 duo E6550 does not work on my foxconn g41mxe motherboard


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186187

Motherboard supports Processors with a Front Side Bus (FSB) of either 800Megahertz, or 1066MHz.

1333MHz FSB support is done with OVERCLOCKING.

Intel Core2 Duo E6550 processor has a 1333MHz FSB.

http://www.manualowl.com/m/Foxconn/G41MXE/Manual/297328

I reduced the view size to 120 percent. Go to Page 27.
Press DELete key to enter BIOS Setup.

Use Down Arrow key to highlight - Fox Central Control Unit
Press the Enter key

CPU Frequency Setting should be set to 333 (333MHz)
Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'
333MHz x 4 = Approximately 1333MHz. (1332)

http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&socket=Socket%20775&model=G41MXE&cputype=Intel

Note the version of the BIOS program also.

I need the manual for the Abit TH7 raid motherboard to match the 1.4G intel Pentium 4 processor


The old Abit TH7 RAID mobo, ay?

http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/925_2.html


The Socket 478 motherboard uses an Intel 82850 Northbridge chip, and Intel 82801BA Southbridge chip, for the motherboard chipset.
(ICH2 is 82801BA)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

(Intel's term for their Northbridge chip is MCH. Memory Controller Hub,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI-Express are high-speed graphics.

{The Abit TH7 RAID mobo has an Accelerated Graphics Port expansion slot, for a graphics card. AGP)

A graphics (Video) card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or Integrated Graphics,
is Not high-speed graphics.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

As you can see in the chart on Wikipedia the FSB support for the Intel 850 chipset (Intel 82850) is 400MHz.

In conclusion, you know now that you can use an Intel Pentium 4 processor,
A) That fits in a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Has a maximum Front Side Bus frequency rate ('Speed') of 400MegaHertz. (FSB 400MHz)

No, the one you want will not work simply because it's too powerful for the board and will not be recognized. Here you can find all supported processors
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ECS/P4M900T-M2(V1.0).html
as you can see the only ones for your mobo are Q6600 and Q6700.

I have a gateway MSII have a gateway MSI Ms-7399 mother board. I have an E6300 pentium dual core processor at 2.8 with a FSB at 1066,in it and it works fine. I want to know what the specs on the board are...


The board is maxed out at 1066 and it does not appear that gateway has a BIOS update to allow for the higher FSB reuired with the faster Intel chips. If you installed one of these newer LGA 775 chips into your computer it may work but would be a lot slower than what it is rated due to the chips multiplier would be set for 1333. I could not see any BIOS updates from gateway for this board. Also these chips are designed to run with the faster memory and the 800mhz memory speed would also be a bottle neck for your system.

That mobo uses DDR400 PC3200 memory and a 800MHz. Front Side Bus (FSB) P4 processor. You can download System Information for Windows (free) here: http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html, or use a similar program to get the details of your machine. The Gigabyte website also has the manual for your mobo.

Make sure Hyper-Threading is enabled in the BIOS to take full advantage of the P4 proceessor
