I don't believe that there is a P4 motherboard that needs jumper setting to specify the CPU voltage. This used to be common for Pentium & Pentium II motherboards, & some Pentium III motherboards. But I have never seen a Pentium 4 motherboard that require this kind of setting. Besides, I checked the motherboard's manual & I saw that there is a sub-menu in BIOS labelled "Frequency/Voltage Control". This should be the place where the CPU voltage should be set, & on most motherboards, CPU voltage & frequency are automatically detected.
well older mother board cant handle a higher CPU processor, you have to make sure you have ALL the jumper properly set for the CPU, also the memory on the motherboard should be for that motherboard. try not to OC the motherboard as it will fry it.
Also check the motherboard for any Blown capacitor. for the MB to scream bloody murder something is definately wrong.
you could check the website of asus and look under ARCHIVE or DISCONTINUED motherboard. to find drivers and manuals for the motherboard you have unless you have them
also make sure the motherboard can actully take a higher processor.
Thermal grease is always good its help alot, just dont over do the grease applications. as ive seen pasta made out of thermal grease cpu's
I see that you have already had this answered at Techspot.com
They were right when they answered you, you need to check your MB manual to see if it is capable of upgrading to the CPU that you want to use, not all MB support all CPU's just because they both have 478 pins.
I looked on the ASUS website and they don't even list your MB model on there.
