Preferred Solution: Will my E6700 mobo support the new E6700

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Will my E6700 mobo support the new E6700

More than likely not. Most board that were born it the 65nm process era, will not support the newer 45nm CPU. In many cases, newer boards intended for 45nm CPUs are backwards compatible with the older chips, but I know that doesn't help you.

The E6700 (Pent) is a very new offering. It usually won't even run in boards that accept the E6300 & E6500 "Pentium Dual Core", (the new 45nm CPUs), without a BIOS update.

Here's the CPU support page for your board, and no's the answer;

the board's CPU compatibility doesn't even extend to the E6x20 series of C2D. These were the 1333 FSB models.

Hi I have recently replaced my Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86GHz (65nm) with a E6420 2.13GHz (4MB cache instead of 2MB).

I kept my old memory and everything is running great.
Old memory is DDR2-PC4200 533MHz.

If I now buy a E6700 2.67Ghz will I need faster memory or will the 533Mhz memory be OK?

MrWizard2U said:

I read the E6700 overclocking review here at TechSpot and figured it was good enough for me to achieve 3.5GHz but cant get even close. My mobo P5W DH Deluxe and E6700 CPU are the same as in review and only the memory different being also Corsair is PC6400 XMS2 dual channel matched sticks 2x1GB.

This where I am at the moment and desperately wanting to figure out what is stopping me from achieving the 3.5GHz or better as achieved in the reviewed test.

FSB: 330
RAM: 825MHz
PCI Frequency: 100
PCI Clock Sync. Mode: 33.33MHz
RAM Voltage: 1.95v
RAM Timing: 5-5-5-12-5
Vcore BIOS Setting: 1.5v
Vcore as reported by sensor: 1.46-1.48v
FSB Termination Voltage: 1.4v
MCH Chipset Voltage: 1.55
ICH Chipset Voltage: 1.2
CPU Temp: 58-61 spiking occasionaly up to 63

Have rebooted the rig so many times with so many different combinations of FSB termination, MCH, ICH and it doesnt seem to make any difference at all. The only thing that has been resulting in longer stress test runs is increasing Vcore. This is why I am already at Vcore 1.5 which has increased my temps as well.

I stress test with Orthos and the above settings will normaly give me about 2-4 hours before Orthos fails.

This is driving me nuts. Any help would be much appreciated.Click to expand...

First, those temps are horrible. You should be BELOW 50C, not below 70C.

Second, not all CPUs are equal. Just because a reviewer's overclocks to 3.5GHz doesn't mean yours it guarenteed to be able to the same.

For example, my X2 3800+ reaches over 500MHz OC without any volt increase, others barely get 200MHz out of it before needing a volt increase.

I want to get a Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66 GHz to put in a gaming pc that I'm building, and a lot of the reviews and game related stuff I see about it talks about overclocking it. Can't a Core 2 Duo at that speed run games at high settings without having to overclock? I don't know anything much about overclocking except that it can be risky so I'm curious.

Relevancy 96.75%

I am now entering a stage where I feel confident enough to over clock my pc( after much research).
I currently have a HP Intel core duo E6700 running at 2.66Ghz with 3gig of ram. I have a changed the power supply to 700 watt and dumped a XFX geforce 8800gt xxx apha dog to play with.
I haven't changed any of the fans as the cpu never get above 50 under load and the gpu never goes above 70.
The system is very stable but what I would like to know is what speed would people recommand ( I have seen them running at 3.5 and above) with the current cooling system or should I upgrade the cooling system? then over clock?

Any thoughts?

A:Overclocking E6700 with stock cooler?

Yes get an aftermarket CPU cooler. Keep in mind that you will have to clean off the old thermal paste and apply new clean thermal paste when you change the cooler. Overclocking is increased little by little until the computer won't start. Make note of the overclocking values and when the computer won't boot, use the last working setting after you reset the CMOS and get the computer booting once more

A:Optiplex 320 runs a Core2Duo e6700 with 1066mhz FSB

The e6500 did NOT work in the Optiplex 320.  Couldn't boot to bios -- just a black screen.  The e6500 is a newer Wolfdale cpu -- perhaps that's why it doesn't work?  Too bad, though, since I love how the e6500 performs in my other Optiplex 330 machines.
Oh well -- it was at least satisfying to find out that the e6700 worked in an Optiplex 320!
Now if someone can tell me how to make the 320 capable of Dual Channel memory -- that would be appreciated!  Bios shows only single channel capability, despite having matched pairs of 1gb sticks installed.

Hey everyone!
I want to know if G.SKILL [ RipjawsX ] F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL(8Gx1) / F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL(8Gx2) RAM supports MSI Z77 MPOWER Motherboard

I searched in both support list and I didn't find, but I think it supports each other because the RAM is DDR3-1600 and this Motherboard support DDR3-1600, but I want to be sure!

NOTE: I want also to know if there is different between buying 2x8G or 1x8G (If I want to buy each one from different store with the same name) or there is no different?

NOTE 2: I will buy Intel Core i7-3770k CPU for my Mobo


A:Need to know the RAM that support the Mobo that I will buy!

First, I think that having 16GB of ram is completely useless. Second, if you are going with Ripjaws, you are mostly an amateur gamer, but I am sorry if I'm being stereotypical. If I'm right, I am sure you don't do lots of multitasking, or video and sound editing, making 16gb of ram just a waste, Two 4GB sticks, or 4 2gb sticks would do wonder with dual channel.

Third, if your motherboard RAM compatibility list does not show the ram you are buying, don't risk it. Ask someone directly from the company, or buy ram that shows as supported. Ripjaws don't do anything that other RAM sticks cannot do and will show any difference.

However if you are just going for looks, just doublecheck with an MSI CSA to see if it would be compatible with the board even if it doesn't show in the list.

My GigaByte Mobo (see system spec) was purchased in 2010. I'm considering buying an SSD for the system and I want to be sure my hardware supports it using AHCI mode. When AHCI is enabled I see the following verbiage displayed during the hardware boot cycle before the OS begins to load:
Serial ATA AHCI BIOS, Version iSrc 1.20E
Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
** This version supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives **
The part that worries me is the last sentence where it says "...supports only Hard Disk and CDROM drives"
Does this mean the mobo does not support an SSD?

Hello SF members,

I see today uEFI is very popular, a lot of people use it...
I have ASUS P8H61-M LX2 (it have modern BIOS utility, etc. ).

So, does my mobo support uEFI?

And what is pros and cons of uEFI? I found that I need GPT formated HDD and GPT isn't recommend for HDD who have less than 2.2TB.

If my mobo support it, does I need anything other?


A:Does my mobo support uEFI?

uefi are the modern kinds of BIOS. They are better than older generation BIOS and their more obvious feature is that they have fancy graphics, they don't look like old DOS stuff. Most other things are "better" but from a customer point of view, there isn't a lot to talk about. It supports newer standards like GPT, and other modern stuff that wasn't possible with older generations of BIOS.

As for what you are saying about GPT, afaik UEFI can boot from GPT drives, but work fine with normal (MBT) drives as well. Who said that you need to use only GPT?

According to the product specs here, your BIOS is uefi already.

In any case, you can do nothing about it, as it's the manufacturer that decides what BIOS each board will have.

1. It should be.

2. Start with 450Watts but look at the specs for the card to assure the PSU is adequate, may need to go as high as 750Watts.

How to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Basically i want to install an OS onto my ipod mini 4gb but my mobo does not support booting from a USB HDD, although it supports USB FDD and USB ZIP booting.

I was just wondering if there is a kind of "boot manager" like maybe on a bootable CD that will allow you to boot from a USB HDD (in my case my ipod mini 4gb).

If such i thing exists, which im pretty sure it does i just cant find it - could you please post the link to where i can download this "boot manager"

Thank you!

A:Hot to boot from USB-HDD even when your mobo dosent support it?

Nope.. No such thing. It would be a gigantic task to put together something that would know about all USB controllers in existence and would successfully mask all the relevant BIOS interrupts to make the USB HD to look like a real hard drive..

A BIOS update is your only hope.

A:How can you tell what CPU upgrade your laptop mobo can support?


From my experience, I have not seen laptops that the cpu was not soldered onto the mb. But I could be wrong but most laptops require a heck of a lot of tools and experience to take them apart and put in a new cpu.

In the long run, it might be less aggrivation to just buy a new laptop as they are getting cheaper and cheaper.
You might want to let us know why you want to change the cpu?

My motherboard (AMD Athlon 64 3000+, Venice, Socket 939, 1809.4 MHz (9.0 x 201.0 MHz)) doesn't like to be properly detected by all the online RAM tests, so I gotta figure out everything by hand. I dled cpuz..
it says under chipset:

Northbridge NVIDIA nForce4 rev. A3
Southbridge NVIDIA nForce4 MCP rev. A3
Graphic Interface PCI-Express
PCI-E Link Width x16
PCI-E Max Link Width x16
Memory Type DDR
Memory Size 512 MBytes
Memory Frequency 164.5 MHz (CPU/11)
now I think this is because i have 512 megabytes in there currently.. since it's listing the graphic interface i currently have in there rather than what it supports (yeah i know it sucks..). but i want to know if it will support a 1024 stick of ddr, cause it's actually cheaper and means i can upgrade more later.

the whole cpuz scan is here

I think that my MOBO can support this processor, but I just wanted to check.

I currently have a Intel Core 2 Duo E660 2.4GHz, with 2GB DDR2 533MHz RAM (2x1GB).

I want to upgrade to an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 2.66GHz Quad Core CPU. According to the ASUS website, my computer can support Quad core.

- Support IntelŪ next generation 45nm Multi-core CPU
- IntelŪ Quad-Core

I also wondered how much is the maximum RAM my MOBO can support (can I put in 2GB sticks in or just 4x1GB).

- Dual-channel DDR2 800/667/533

All help greatly appriciated in question #1 or #2.

A:Will my MOBO support a new processor and differnet RAM?

generally it is better just to stick with 2 sticks of ram. So go with 2 x 2gb if you want 4gb. (This is overkill for most applications). 2gb should be plenty.

You should not have any CPU upgrade issues, but you may require a BIOS update. Read:

I have a new Aopen AX63pro motherboard (ATX form factor) being shipped from California and wonder if my old AT power supply and case will work with the new board. If I need a new supply, is 300 watts "better" than 235w or 200w? If I need a new case, any thoughts on what's the best value? Does an ATX power supply fit into some AT cases (if there is such a thing) or is a dedicated ATX case/power supply needed?

Thanks to anyone taking time to offer an opinion.

A:Will old AT power supply and case support new ATX mobo?

you will most likely need a new case and power supply. Some AT boards will take either a AT or ATX power supply but I have not seen an ATX board that will do both. There may be some exceptions but it is a good bet that you will need to buy some new equipment.

Newegg has some ram I'd like to order, it's listed as:

My motherboard is listed as supporting:
DDR3 1866(OC)*/1333/1066
* To reach DDR3 1866MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets.Click to expand...

Will my motherboard be able to handle the DDR 1600? I thought that maybe it would since it falls between DDR 1866 and DDR 1333. Am I right to think that?

Hey guys and gals,

I bought this mobo back in July and have not used it yet. It's the A1 680ISLI and I am not sure if It supports the new PCI 2.0 interface. Any suggestions/Answers???


A:Does the EVGA 680ISLI MOBO support the 8800GT

The 8800GT should be a PCI-e x16 interface, so as long as the mobo has that then you'll be fine.

Basically everything you can get these days has PCI-e x16 on it so it will most likely be ok

If you're not sure, google for pictures and compare what you have on the board.

i have Intel Core 2 4500 CPU. Socket type is LGA775. Have 4 gb DDR 2 (4 sticks 1 gb each). I need a no-frill NON-overclocking simple motherboard for it. Right now I have gigabyte P-35 DS3L but the bios support is no good. I cannot use a USB keyboard to power on the computer. I don't want overclocking feature at all - just a solid mobo with a really good and working bios and preferrably a micro-atx.

A:need stable quality mobo with good bios support

I'd probably look to the Intel brand in that situation.

Here's a link to a bunch of micro ATX Intel Socket 775 boards at New Egg: - Computer Hardware,Motherboards,Intel Motherboards,Intel,LGA 775,Micro ATX

BIOS support going forward could be tricky because socket 775 is on the way out. You'd have to dig into BIOS features to see if they support USB keyboard power on.

I had a socket 775 Intel board for 4 years that had no issues at all, but I can't recall if it had that feature.

This is a General question regarding the end of support for XP. I realise at the end date the computer should be backed up in case you have to format the disc at any time after the end of the support period.

My question is does the built in Windows back up in XP when backing up the system include the installed updates? Or is it best to use third party software to do this.


A:[SOLVED] End ofThis is a general question regarding the end of support for XP support

I believe Windows just backs up your personal files and won't do the entire OS. You'll need a 3rd party program to do the entire HDD.

Also you really should think about upgrading to Windows 7. Staying on XP after the end support date is not recommended as you will lose security updates from Microsoft as well as patches.

The tricky part of this is you will probably have to not only replace the motherboard, but also the power supply, processor and memory

Here's an example:

The power supply is old and you wouldn't want to damage a new motherboard would you. The old memory is DDR. The new board takes DDR2 memory. You may be able to use the old CPU or processor

The HP ProDesk 400 G1 MS motherboard is bad.  It is a MS 7860 v1.2.    It has a special connector for the USB ports on the mobo.   Can somebody recommend a new mobo replacement? Thanks. Darryl

Just saw the schematic and the connector is the USB 3.0 mobo connector that combines two USB 3.0 ports.   What do you ask for on a new mobo? Thanks.

I have an eMachine desktop that Iam repairing for a friend,
we have come to the conclusion (from experience) that because it is dead
even when trying to turn it on that it has suffered from Capacitor Plague
(Perhaps in the PSU then damaging the MoBo)
A new PSU has been tried and it still doesn't work
WHAT Type of 'cheap' motherboard could I replace the current one with?
it has a Celeron processor so we will be looking to conserve that..
I was looking at this...
or (incase his CPU is socket 478)
will this one be compatible?
My friend just wants a cheap solution...
Ive recommended the new PSU / MoBo and extra RAM (at least another 256Mb to
bring it to 512)

any recommendations would be helpful....

I think the revamped Support Assistant is brilliant - especially for drivers where it checks your PC, rather than give you a list of driver updates for your model, as the old website-based Driver Update checker did. It has an "Add a device" facility but it doesn't find my HP DCP_J315W printer, connected via wireless. Does Support Assistant support printers? edited 08:07: typo

Hey guys:

I believe your Product looks really promising but I'm having some challenges while deploying the Trial in my Environment. We have 200+ DCs globally and 17 Domains. Does your solution support a multi-domain environment? How many DCs per gateway are you able
to manage?

Thanks. Regards,

I replaced the mobo on my Dell 5510. Purchased from Dell. Sticker on mobo says BIOS ver A05. About every other day I get blue screen and physical dump of memory. My system info says my BIOS ver is A07. How do I go about changing BIOS? Is it as simple as pulling battery for 15 seconds? Some have offered this suggestion but I get a little worried at "friends" advice.

A:Replaced MOBO on Dell 5510 BIOS sticker on MOBO says A05, system in still has BIOS of A07

Removing the battery won't change the BIOS version. You need to download the version you require from the Dell site. From Windows you "flash" the BIOS. Take your time preparing for this. If anything goes wrong you will wreck your motherboard.

What is the difference between a regular old computer motherboard and a "server motherboard"? Are they faster? Do they have more ports?

A:No mobo light, new PSU, new mobo

Well, I don't know about a motherboard that requires "400 Watts". I think that the CPU, and even more importantly, the graphics card combine to set the tone of how much power is likely to be drawn.

Moving along, the "clicking" you heard could be the PSU cutting out due to a short circuit. Check the board to case standoffs, and make certain every one you have in place, has solder lands under the screws. (These are intended to be grounded). If there is no solder land under a screw, remove that particular standoff. BTW did you hook up the ATX (4 pin) connector, the plug near the CPU, and did you connect the PCIE- 6 pin connector to the video card? (This assumes the card you're using needs one)

That bad news is that you may have damaged the board, if indeed it was a short.

Hi all My son s computer has been running reasonably well but hot for a year Last Saturday it crashed requiring power down times to restart I went through this mobo? CPU or process many times crash after seconds power down power on no video or beep power down no video POST reporter sez either System failed CPU test or System failed due to CPU overclocking with about equal frequency power down power on POST run for seconds crash On those occasions when I could get into the BIOS the CPU temp was C--normal for this system A couple of times written on the POST screen was BIOS checksum error but I think that was an artifact from previous crashes The computer Athlon XP Palomino on an Asus A V AMD HS fan MB Samsung DDR in slot Asus GeForce Ti video The PSU was replaced with an Antec watt I believe months ago The system has never been overclocked All BIOS settings are Auto or default in jumper-free mode I ve perused this and other forums and found many posts concerning System failed CPU CPU or mobo? test but no consistent cause or solution offered This computer has always run around C at idle and a couple of times shut down automatically when the CPU hit C Do you think we finally baked the CPU or could it be a MB problem after all this time Strider nbsp

A:CPU or mobo?

hmmm, it could be a variety of things.

Check the positioning of the heatsink... make sure it isn't slightly tilted off the cpu.

Also, unplug all other devices (cdroms, HDDs, sound card, et cetera) leaving just the RAM, cpu, and video card. Power on with that and see if that continues.

Have you use the jumper on the mobo to reset the CMOS? I don't see why that would cause it, but you should try it nevertheless.

Hello, I have an agp board right now. I want to move to pci-x. I also have a nice 20 pin psu. Almost all the pci-x mobos I have found are 24pin. ARe there and adapters or something out there I could use?

A:24 pin PSU? Need new mobo

Yes there are.

If you Google for 20 to 24 pin psu adapters, you should find plenty. Typically, they only cost a few dollars.

I'm looking at upgrading my PC from

P4 1.7Ghz
GF2 MX400
Intel D845HV mobo


P4 2.* Ghz maybe
512MB DDR PC2*00
GF4 Ti4200
New mobo

Need your help, should I get a mobo/CPU combo, or just get a mobo? What kind is best? Would like a 533Mhz bus. Will all this work together and be compatible?

Thanks so much,

A:Help with new mobo/CPU

It really depends what your price limitations are and very importantly what you're going to be using it for.

Have you had any performance issues with the 1.7GHz? Anything you feel you're lacking? If so then upgrade to a 2.xGHz.
Any performance problems you may experience is probably due to the SDRAM :rolleyes:

I would say definitely get a new sysbo & DDR.
The GFX card, I'd say definitely. I'm still wondering how a GF2 MX got packaged with a P4, though...

recently my external hard drive was having problems booting up It booted just fine except for occasionally it just didn t and I had to either switched off or switch and switch it on again or unplug it and plug it back in and then it would come whirring to life then one day it just didn t I thought that it might be the external hard drive enclosure power system so I took the hard drive out of the enclosure and put it into my tower when I first booted up it worked just fineand I was able to get information off of it Then suddenly It told me the hard drive is unavailable as if it wasn t powered on So I did what I did when that happened on the external I mobo? Did fry my Drive I unplugged it and plugged it back in On the external drive all that did was cause the computer to forget it and discover it again However I did not anticipate that unplugging it using the internal power source would cause any difficulties What actually happened was there was a spark and the Did I fry my mobo? entire computer shut down when I tried to boot it up again the power button is completely unresponsive I even tried turning it off at the back turning it back on and try again and no luck Even if I completely disconnect the hard drive I was working with and try again no luck Not even a splash screen no beep no fans nothing did I short the system out and by doing so foolishly managed to fry my motherboard D what do I do nbsp

A:Did I fry my mobo?

It certainly sounds like a possibility, although my first checks would be on the PSU rather than the motherboard. Do you have access to any other known working PSU that you can test with?
