The only two that differ between the sockets
There are other differences, some are power supply pins, the two pins are just the minimum hack to get things working, but stability can never be the same as native 775 cpus.
Just dropped a e5410 into my ep35-dsr3 and she runs sweet. Only had a quick play but just up to 3.15ghz fsb change only. Dam don't you wish these were around like 3 yrs back or so, I cant help at laughing now when i see q9550 going for $100+. Guess its time to hang up the q6600 :** poor baby has done so well for its age, just no use for it these days
This has to be the simplest mod to date for crazy power, lol could see people a few people turning back to 775 for benching and daily rigs. You look at an i3 and its price and you can see the value in doing this pretty quickly
I'm a bit late to the party, but just ordered myself an X5460, time to bring my old 790i ftw digital back to life with the 970 I just bought!
After all these years after being tortured on LN2 by dino and running 24/7 for at least 6 years, it still works!!
I've joined the party at the same time with the same CPU.
Have you tried overclocking? I'm at 3.6Ghz at the moment and I'm pretty sure I could go further.
I read the TjMax for these is 80. Is that correct?
I did one of these for kicks but was stuck with 800 ram, hows stability go? Gave it to a friend who was broke so he had something for bf4 so really never got to play with it. Conversion was easy only issue i found was with 4 sticks of ram it wouldn't post, maybe a memory prob or needed more voltage hell knows. I stuck 2 x2bg of value 800 and oc'd keeping 2:1 as 2.8ghz should be fine for a bf4 rig only running a 6950. Lol gotta stop giving stuff away before i get to tinker Might do another on a p35 for xmas fun and hunt down some good ddr2 or a cheap ddr3 775 board.
With the high multiplier of 5460, you should have no problem going over 4G.
Temps at >4ghz really start to become an issue even on high end d14.
Haven't got it yet waiting on the post, 3.6 aint bad, what vcore?
tjmax is 85
Damn C0 stepping on the one I ordered but hoping to just crack 4ghz and keep vcore under 1.36, luckily I've still got a 360 radiator setup in the case
You guys getting excited thinking its new is cute
Should have been around for Tualatins.
I was around way before the Tualatins
That's fairly new tech for me Started with the 386/486 on Win 3.1/Xtree gold. Mobo jumber overclocking FTW!!!!!!!
Volupheles: Got mine going, C0 SLANP is happy @ 4ghz 1.36v
Who is thinking its new? I think everybody in here knows the mod is old
Poor choice of words...
I think its cute to see people excited about getting more performance from EOI equipment. I mentioned the Tualatins for a reason
I'd like to try a Xeon in the board Darkstyle is sending me (after i get that pc up and running from a storm), anyone got one to pass on? with the sticker preapplied would be great.
On another note, trying to ressurect an i5 (4 dead bits), i opened a box looking for things and found a box of old stuff i was sure i got rid of. AMD/Cyrix 386's, 300a, several Tully's (plus slockets, slot-t's and s370 adapters) and a pile of SDram.
I'm going to grab a X5470 and give this a try. I have several motherboards to try it on. any suggestion which might be the most likely to get good results with?
All Gigabyte boards;
first one uses DDR3 others DDR2.
Should all work. P45 for best overclocks, other two I doubt you'll get much more than stock.
thanks for your input. i guess i should have known the answer. I had a e8400 in the G41MT-ES2L at one point and from memory the FSB was severely limited. i'll update on my progress once the Xeon chip arrives from china.
did a gigabyte G41 m-atx board a few weeks back, just had to find a modded bios to make it see all four cores
I assisted a young fellow in modding an Asus Commando (P965 chipset)
We put an X5470 in to it.
Well he had a AIO water cooler on it and it happily ran at 4Ghz stable.
so my X5470 arrived, after getting lost in the mailman's truck for a few days after he left the non-delivery note.
"You don't need to mod your BIOS microcode for the Xeon to work. You typically only need to mod it to get full functionality, stop error messages at boot-up and possibly solve overheating issues."
it worked right away but my Northbridge seems to be overheating and the system slows to a crawl without a cooling fan on it.
would a microcode mod possibly fix this? or is it just a matter of cooling it?
