Preferred Solution: Which processors will my motherboard support?

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.)

Hi guys

I was wondering since using this awsome low budget board, i was wondering is it possible for it to support next gen 45nm processors? casue this board is listed as a capable 1333MHZ FSB. So assuming it can, can someone elaborate more on this?


A:P5N-E SLI support 45nm processors

1333Mhz FSB processors can be conroe or penryn (45nm) the E6x50 series coming out in july are xconroe 1333 processors.

The board may or may not support Penryn with a BIOS update.

While it should work, the E8500 is a dual core CPU, not a quad.  And while the CPU might be 25% faster, remember the rest of the system stays the same,  You won't see anything like a 25% difference overall - maybe 5-8%.

NO, the article you linked to at the Intel site doesn't mean you can use a Core 2 Duo processor in your board.

A:Motherboard for Core 2 processors and 16GB of RAM

Well, to answer you're first question, yes, that motherboard supports that type of RAM.

I cannot, however, understand why you would purchase DDR2 ram. You will not be able to find a whole lot of DDR2 compatible motherboards for sale, and even less core 2 processors. I highly recommend you return that RAM, and get current DDR3 RAM along with a current generation Motherboard and CPU.

Give us your budget, and what you will be using this PC for, an we will be able to help you choose the correct components to buy.

So Ill be looking at upgrading my motherboard hopefully some time in the next few months,

Currently Id like to keep some of the stuff I have atm.

In particular: I need atleast 2 pci slots and preferable a pci-x.

Agp Slot.

Would like some PCI E slots so eventually I can upgrade to some better graphics cards and whatnot.

I want to keep my proccessors for the time which are 2, Duel 3.2ghz Xeon Processors (yes I have a server atm).

I have a 650w Rosewill psu that hopefully will be sufficent for my needs.

So is this going to be possible?
Basicly trying to upgrade in steps, and overall I think my Processors are pritty good, I actually think my board isnt able to utilize them to there fullest atm (or my 4gb's of ram, allthough the ram is ddr 266)

A:What socket 478 processors are compatible with my Compaq 07e8h motherboard?

I think that the Intel 845G chipset supported at most a 533MHz FSB, not 800MHz like that CPU you're thinking of buying. I'm not sure but the chances that it'll work on your motherboard are slim.

I would expect this chip to work, but I just want to be certain. Can anyone tell me for certain whether this CPU will work on my motherboard or not? Thanks.

I thought that all modern BIOS included support for the on boot function "F11 - Invoke Boot Sequence Menu".

I am now told that this is not the case and that many new motherboards do not support the F11 on boot option. In addition I have also been advised that some current BIOS versions have no on boot option facility at all and that the only way to change the boot sequence is to actually change the settings in the BIOS.

Can any Forum member confirm (or not) that the above is in fact true.

I have an INTEL D945GCNL motherboard.there are two slots for RAM.Currently 1Gb DDR2 ram is installed in slot A.
i wish to upgrade the memory to 3gb.i recently bought a single chip of 2gb ddr2.
but the intel website says maximum supported ram for the mobo is 2gb.
when i inserted the ram the OS detected it.(got both vista & xp).
there wasn't a considerable increase in performance though.(gaming etc.)
the new chip speed is 800. first chip has a speed of 667.
there might be a problem with dual channel feature also.
is 3gb possible on this board?
shall i continue using the new chip along with the old one or shall i return the 2gb chip and get a 1gb and settle for a total of 2gb ?

A:Motherboard RAM support

From what i have read, that motherboard will only support 2gig of ram.
What has happened is by mixing the two speeds of ram, the system is running at the lower speed.
So your best bet will be to remove the 1gig stick and only use the 2gig stick.

The motherboard manual says that it supports Hybrid Crossfire between dedicated and integrated cards, but nothing about Crossfire between two dedicated cards.

If it doesn't support crossfire, can I still put a second graphics card in and use it in the same way?

A:Will my motherboard support crossfire?

If your Mobo book of words says yes, then it means yes!

You cannot crossfire a graphics card, such as the one you have, with any onboard graphics native to the mainboard AFAIK... all references to crossfire refers to use of both graphics slots and a crossfire bridge connector...

I have a P4M80-M7A motherboard currently running with a Pentium D 2.8ghz CPU. I get massive bottlenecks when I run Vista with it, so I was thinking of upgrading the CPU to the fastest CPU that will run with the motherboard.

I need some help interpreting these specs:

The website says it supports Pentium 4 and Celeron processors. The manual says "supports Intel Pentium 4 processors up to 3.8ghz). What specifically does that mean? Is the Pentium D part of the Pentium 4 family?

I suppose THE question I need help answering is, with this motherboard, what's the fastest CPU I can throw on, regardless of brand/make/model?

Sorry, I used to be real handy with PCs back in the late 90s but all this new stuff has gotten me confused!

1.Has anyone had any issues installing this System onto the above board?

2.Which Bios Should I download between these 2 (assuming the newest but not sure)

3.Will 2GB and my 450W Fan be enough to handle all this?

4.Should Bios settings be set as defualt or should I configure any for good system performance (dont want to overclock)

....Win 7 32 or 64 Bit.. whats better for this sytem?


A:Advice on Motherboard and CPU Support

If you mean you have a 450 watt power supply, that's plenty unless you have a very powerful graphics card. I'm assuming it is a reliable brand and in good shape.

In your situation, I would go with 32 bit Windows.

Leave BIOS settings at default until you get it up and running well. After that, maybe make some changes and maybe not.

2 GB of RAM is OK. You might or might not notice the difference if you added more, depending on what you do with the PC.

I would definitely NOT download a new BIOS unless you have a specific problem with the existing BIOS. Flashing a BIOS is serious business and not to be done without a good reason. What is your good reason?

I don't know anything about that motherboard.

A:Motherboard doesnt support.....

Your 2800 CPU falls in the category "AMD Athlon XP up to 3000+ @ 333MHz FSB".
Meaning you can run it on the Tiger mobo without any problems. Just get the appropriate optimal memory for that bus-speed

I'd like to connect a TV with an HDMI cable, in an HDMI input in the motherboard. However, it doesn't really get any sort of signal. I'd connect it to the gfx-card if it actually had an ordinary HDMI input instead of the mini-HDMI.
I tried downloading the latest vga-drivers on ASUS' website, but without luck. I've also tried to plug out the main monitor connected to the gfx-card and just having the HDMI in the Motherboard, to the TV- but again without luck.

A:Can this motherboard support 8 harddrives?

While I can't get your link to work, the text in the link would suggest it's an Asus P4P800E-Deluxe. If this is the correct motherboard, then yes- you can have more then 4 drives with this model. I have a few of these and they come highly recommended... just good luck finding one. hehe.

It has an Intel ICH5/5R chip which has:
2xUDMA (4 IDE/ATA drives total)
2xSATA (2 SATA drives)

It also has an on-board Promise controller that adds:
1xUDMA (2 drives total)
2xSATA (2 SATA drives)

Keep in mind the above controller(s) arrangement! If you're planning on having four SATA drives in a single raid volume, it will NOT work. You can, however, have 2xSATA RAID 0/1 (Promise), and another 2xSATA RAID 0/1 (ICH5R) volume and then use Windows to combine the volumes.

A:does intel motherboard DG31PR support usb HID

Sure, pretty much all computers support USB HID devices such as keyboards and mice. And its really more up to the operating system then the motherboard. Full support of any special keys on the keyboard or mouse may still require additional drivers from the manufacturer, such as IOGEAR, which come with the device if needed or are available to download.

A:will the h8-1425a motherboard support a GTX960 4gb

@Darklight11?, welcome to the forum. The first thing that you should do is assure that your motherboard has UEFI instead of a Legacy BIOS.  I believe that it does because the computer came with Win 8. Here is a video card that should work nicely in your motherboard.  Look in the "Specifictaions" section for all of the specs on the card.  It requires a 400W PSU and requires one additional 6-pin power connector.  It has a DisplayPort so it would be capable of UHD resolutions.  I have a 28" UHD monitor that is amazing.  I always recommend a PSU that has at least 100W more than the card requires.  This will give you plenty of power for peak usage.  You may be able to find the card for less money. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I recently updated the bios, for first time after purchase. It was purchased in 2009.
After I updated bios, I got lots of new options in the bios menu.
Like Core Multiplexing, CPU fan control, Usb port disabling, Hard disk predelay, Expansion card text, XD technology, Intel VT, Booting USB devices.

So, I don't know anything about all above things.
Does my mobo support uefi boot for Windows 8.

A:Does this motherboard Intel DG41RQI support UEFI?

Imran I don't know but am very doubtful unless they have made some spectacular advances for that board which is getting on in years.
Now the BIOS update might have been made up to include those features but to give you some idea of the different types see pics - the blue one is the one I think you will have the other darker one is the EUFI type.

Newegg has some ram I'd like to order, it's listed as:
DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)Click to expand...

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?

Hello, i have an ECS P4IBAS Motherboard and was wondering if it can support a 160GB hard drive. The bios is Award Modular BIOS 6.00PG v1.1 and the motherboard has the Intel 845 Chipset. I currently have an 80gb hard drive which is about to fail (it has a very high reallocated sector count) and i really want to get a bigger hard drive as 80gb isnt enough for me anymore. The year of my bios is 2001. So will this motherboard support a 160GB hard drive without having to flash my bios?

Thanks, Nissanman.

A:Hard Drive Support For ECS P4IBAS Motherboard?

Yes, depending on the OS. The Award BIOS will handle it. But, unless you use XP Service Pack 2 or 3, your maximum size per partition is 132 gb before formatting or 128, or so, after formatting.
Best thing to do is format it with whatever OS you have, then extend the partition with a partition manager such as PartIt, Norton Ghost, Acronis, or the like.

would it support always get confused with PCIe video cards so i figure I'll double check.

Also i only have a 380 watt PSU so keep that in mind as well.

If not, any recommendations under 80 dollars (preferred)?

Celeron D 352...

Hi everyone!

I´m very interested on this CPU. But, a change like that means new motherboard too.
I´m interested on this Gigabyte motherboard:

It has a 865GV chipset, dual channel support, AGP8X, and everything I need. This would be a GREAT buy, and the reviews on Newegg are good (that´s important to me), but the main question is:

Will this Gigabyte mobo fully support the Celeron D Cedar Mill? I went to Gigabyte´s site and they say that they´re testing it.
The mobo´s box says "Cedar Mill support".
Here´s the box:

What do you think about this?

Hi again

Can this mb support this ram?:

1024MB Stick, 6-Layer PCB, CAS 3.0, 128x4 Configuration (High Density), 184 Pin, DDR Memory

I went to the website but I didn't see anything that mentions if the ram can be high density...and the site doesn't really give extensive ram specifications anyway just a list of ram sticks that only reach up to 512mb that are compatible (didn't see information on if it should be CAS 2.5 or 3.0 or what either), but im sure I can have a 1024 mb stick as my board supports up to 3GB of RAM. I just want to know if the specific RAM mentioned above will work on my motherboard because I've read that this motherboard can be touchy when it comes to RAM...

A:Can an Asus K8V SE Deluxe motherboard support 1 gig of high density RAM?

Your m/b can support this RAM: 3x DIMM for DDR400/333/266 Max 3GB. :hotbounce

Explain in detail if you can please..

A:Motherboard Gigabyte or Asus? Which one fully support usb 3.0 and crossfire?

I heard the gigabytes UD3R's usb 3.0 get cancelled when using crossfire or sli?Click to expand...

That does not seem very probable. What's the source of this information?

Both ASUS and Gigabyte are great brands. Just get the board that comes in cheaper as long as they have the same feature set.
