Preferred Solution: Motherboard suggestions for Intel Xeon processor

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I am considering an Dell Precison 64-bit workstation with an Intel Xeon Processor. I would like to know whether the Floating-Point Unit (FPU) is 64-bits. I have Googled on the web and searched on the Intel web site and cannot find the answer.



A:Intel Xeon Processor FPU precision

I suggest that you contact Dell about this. I bet they are much better about answering questions BEFORE you buy than AFTER.

So the Intel Xeon E3-1535M v6 Processor got 16 PCIe Lanes, The P5000 (as equipt in my config) consumes 16 I would say.....right so doed that mean that the attacherd M.2 Drives run on the reg. SATA bus? If so that bottle necks the performance.Does somebody know the MB config????

I'm looking to replace the logic board in my desktop system with a PCI Express-capable model. The current logic board is an Asus P4C800-E with a 3.4 ghz P4 CPU.

What I would like is:
1 16x PCI Express slot (two would be better)
at least 4 other PCI slots
USB 2.0
Onboard gigabit Ethernet
Has to play well with the current processor

My upper limit is around $250 for the board. Suggestions?

A:PCI Express Intel-Compatible Motherboard Suggestions?

A socket 478 p4 board with pci-e is not too common.
I also doubt you'll find one with 4 pci slots as well(although they have some pci-e x1 slots too).
Here're two I could find w/ pci-e and socket 478.
After looking at both, I'd definitely go with the albatron model of the two, it has 1 more pci slot, and also has full pci express x16(not the asrocks "agi express", which is limited).
The downside to the albatron is that it only has 1 ide port, so you could only have 1 ide hd if you have one cd/dvd drive, or no ide drives if you have 2 cd/dvd drives. It basically means you need to use sata hard drives with the board, (or you'd have to get a pci/pci-e x1 ide controller to add 2 more ide connectors).
^that has 2 ide connectors if you'd need more ide connectors. It also adds usb and firewire.

If you need firewire you can add a card like this(or if you need ide ports and get the above, firewire is already built in).
Or if you don't want to tie up a pci slot, you could get a pci-e x1 model like this.

And if you need gigabit ethernet, same situation, you can get pci or pci-e x1.

I bought an old Dell Optiplex 380 system refurbished from Dell for about $80 with an E7500 Intel core 2 duo processor and upgraded it to a Xeon E5430 for about $20. The cpu benchmark went from about 1800 to 4000. The Dell Optiplex 380 uses DDR3 memory, so the Xeon gets an additional boost there. I also downloaded a modded Dell bios that supports the Xeon functions on the 775 motherboard at bios-mods forums for free. Great little computer to play older games in Windows 7. Next I will be updating this system to Windows 10. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium OEM installed by Dell.

So for little cost you can play around with older hardware and make it do things it wasn't originally designed for.

A:Good mid-range to high-end Intel LGA 1155 motherboard suggestions

The best board I've used thus far -a combination of stability, feature set, ease of use and overclock ability would be the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen 3. It features a PLX bridge chip which allows use of virtually all features concurrently ( the third PCIe x16 @ x4 isn't downgraded to x1 for instance if you use most/all of the SATA 6Gb/USB3.0 ports).
If you don't need a full-size board then the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 at around $180 might make some appeal. Both these boards have no facility for video-out (no onboard HDMI, DP, DVI, D-Sub) - not a great concern for most people looking at Z68 boards.

Word of warning: Z77 boards are reportedly due for release on 8th April. While they will offer very little (if anything) over Z68 boards, it will mean that Z68 board prices will take a nosedive. My advice if you need a board right now and want to save some cash, would be to pick up a functional and well regarded cheap board such as the P8Z68-V/G3 (which still a very nice board) and maybe look to replace it with one of the top-end boards which will surely drop in price. It does mean that you would have the hassle of finding a buyer for a board, but on the plus side you may find yourself happy with the P8Z68-V.

You'll notice that all the selections are Asus based products. Asus -at least for Z68, seems to be putting out the best boards overall. Some other vendors are having QC problems. Gigabyte, which are normally my first choice in mobo making, have some infuria... Read more

When it comes to selecting mobo's, I'm not sure what to really buy. I am buying a Intel Pentium 4 / 2.4CGHz 512k socket 478 Hyper Threading Technology 800 MHz FSB .

Can you guys give me some suggestions on a decent mobo?

-I will not be overclocking
-little room for upgrade
-stable board.



A:Suggestions on purchasing stable, proper, motherboard for Intel Pentium 4 / 2.4CGHz

I would go to newegg.com. They have a big selection of mobos there. Asus, Intel, Soyo, Aopen, and Gigabyte all make decent boards. When you go to newegg, click on Computer Hardware and then Shop by Catagory. When you hit Motherboards-Intel, there will be an Advanced Search colum on the left. It's handy for narrowing down what features you want. Since you have limited expansion space you might want to consider things like onboard audio and LAN.

I have a Gateway Computer Model G6-350. It have a Intel MP440BX motherboard with PhonexBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0 (4M4PB0X1.15A.0033.P21) and Pentium II 350 Processor.

I want to know if this motherboard support Pentium III Processor Slot 1 at 500, 550 or 600 MHZ.

Thanks to anybody.

A:Processor Support for Intel 440BX Motherboard

That's a Gateway-specific motherboard, Intel have no information about it on their site. From looking at similar boards you should be able to run a P3-450 (Katmai, not Coppermine), which is what the Intel SE440BX goes up to. I'm assuming you have a very early 440BX board as it came with a P2-350, the first 100MHz FSB processor Intel released.

Hi all,

As the title says, my question is regarding the use of a combination of the G3258 Intel Pentium processor with Intel HD Graphics and a Z87 motherboard.

The problem is that I can't get it to work. An HDMI cable is used between the computer and the monitor when using Intel HD Graphics. I've tried different HDMI cables to no avail.

Naturally, I've double and triple checked that the internal graphics is enabled in the UEFI. I've tried disabling the graphics card in UEFI hoping to force it to use the processor's graphics capability (Intel HD Graphics) but it won't work like that.

It doesn't turn off and I guess that's a good thing since if neither graphics option would work, I couldn't see to get back in the UEFI to turn it back on.

When the DVI cable is hooked to my video card, it works fine. When I disconnect it and connect the HDMI cable and reboot, there's no video, just a blank screen.

Is it possible that the combination of the processor with graphics and the motherboard I have just won't work together?

I have Windows 7 x64 SP1 with all updates, an EVGA GTX 650 video card, and an EVGA Z87 FTW mobo with Intel G3258 Pentium 3.2GHz CPU which includes Intel HD Graphics.

Thanks for any assistance.

EDIT: @GokAy - Thank you for the tip to reset CMOS in case all video was lost. I guess I was overly tired when I made the post here because I should have thought of a simple thing like that. In fact, the Z87 motherboard has a button on the back of the case to press whe... Read more

The response of the system (no-boot with the Xeon CPU aboard) is your answer:  NO.  This system won't take that CPU.
Since the system won't boot with the Xeon CPU aboard, it matters not which OS you plan to run.

I have a new system Intel DG965WH with 1GB and a Core 2 Duo E6300 processor with a WD 320 GB SATA drive. When I start the installation of either XP or Media Version XP they both get to the point of loading in memory the necessary files and when you are prompted for "enter" to continue it resets the machine and you start all over again.

Has any one had experience loading either of these operating systems on to this type of system or perhaps can point me in the right direction as to the problem? Could it be memory? I am using a Kingston KVR667D2N5K2/1G which should be ok for this type of mother board as it is 1.8v memory.

I have a question about Xeon processor's, would it be more efficient to run 3 or 4 processor's in a server, is it better for them to work in tandem?

A:Xeon processor

Unless you're going to be running a file server for 100 or more computers using it heavily, I wouldn't go over 2 processors (Athlon MPs aren't extremely expensive, and do the job well). However, I'd set up the network as follows for 50 or less computers:

Dual Processor (doesnt have to be fast) Domain Controller

Dual Processor Domain Controller back up (very important -- it would SUCK to lose all your user names and domain information, and remember, downtime reflects poorly on you)

Dual Processor (faster then others) File Server
And add File Servers as needed. This set up is cost efficient, and if you use RAID 5, you wont lose data if one disk drive goes. You keep the File Servers seperate from domain controllers, and keep everything running well.
So, to answer your question, NO, I do not think anything over 2 processors is needed.

Right now, I have a P4 2.26 GHz processor in my PC that needs replaced. Looking at the motherboard documentation, it says it can accept up to a 3.0Ghz P4 processor with up to 533 MHz system bus.

My question. Is it possible to replace it with, like a 2.8 GHz Xeon processor? Would the performance be that much different? Would it be worth the extra cost? Or, should I just go for a regular P4 processor to replace it?

A:Possible to change processor to Xeon?

I am looking to build my own PC as I can't afford 1,000+ to get someone to make one for me, I will be using it for gaming and communication and a little college work, I will probably be using Bullguard to protect it and OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office with a Win 7 64bit OS.

Bearing this in mind what would be the best Processor for the Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz Quad-Core (BX80637I53570K) Processor and what would be the maximum Memory and Storage I could attach to it? ( I preferably want 8GB of Memory and 1tb of storage ) but I can be flexible.

A:What would be the best motherboard for a Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz Quad-Core (BX80637I53570K) Processor?

The CPU you want is the i5 3570K. That runs on the socket LGA 1155. When you are on a budget, any mid range mobo will suit your needs. Use the savings from the mobo towards a better HDD or even an SSD. You will also need a GPU.

I would recommend the ASUS P8Z77-V LK motherboard. As for RAM, 8GB is enough. As for the HDD, 1TB is great. I recommend the WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD.

Make sure you can get in a GPU.

Hello everyone. I am a 3D arch viz artist, using 3Ds Max + Vray render. I am looking for additional render power.

My budget is around 2.000 Euros, so I was considering 2 options:

A guy is selling a HP DL580 G7 server, which includes 32 GB ram and 4x Xeon E7540 2 GHz (6-core CPU, based on Nehalem), which is a total of 24 cores / 48 threads.

For the same money, I could buy a 5960X system or 2 systems running a Core i7 4790 CPUs. The hardware in my country is a bit more expensive when compared to USA / EU.

I can't find any benchmarks for the E7540 CPUs, so I am not sure if 4xE7540 would outperform 2 modern 4-core Core i7 CPUs (like the 4790K). That would be 24cores vs 8 cores / 48 threads vs 16 threads.

Vray render uses all of the available CPU cores, no limit there.

The 5960X system, if for the same money would be the best buy.

A:Will HPZ800 take Intel Xeon X5690 CPU?

According to the Z800 data sheet, the X5690 is supported. This is a high power Xeon and has a max TDP of 130W so you need a high capacity heatsink with these hot CPU's. I believe not all heatsinks are the same... Others may be able to specify exact part numbers..

I'd like to ask if someone has a XEON running on that mobo. I would like to buy one and would like to make sure that it runs on this mobo.

I'm using the latest BIOS, SOX5810J.86.5600 dated 07/29/2013.

Thanks for all advice in advance!

Hi!I have thinkpad P50with Intel Xeon inside and 64 GB RAM.I am working on front end softwre development. during work laptop frequently freezes. Especially when working with browsers. Any idea how to fix it?

A couple of questions: 1.   Which OS and browser are you using?2.   Do you have a Smart Card reader installed? The reason I'm asking is that, once in a while, while using IE 11 on Windows 7 on my similarly-provisioned P70, the browser simply stops working.  Upon close inspection, it seems that the MFA client sometimes fails, even while not being used (I have the reader for future-proofing the machine but have no smart card inserted at present). The latest driver seems to be less likely to cause this problem, but it has not completely been eliminated. Could this be your issue?

I just recieved the 7510 about 2 weeks ago and have been getting increasingly annoyed with the trackpad which seems to  have issues. The trackpad never seems to stop working completely, but it seems to get stuck for a second pause or stutter frequently. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I'm considering, mostly just for the fun of it, upgrading the processor in my M93p Tiny desktop. According to CPU World, the socket type is a Socket 1150 / Socket LGA1150 / Socket H3. My M93p currently has a Intel Core i5-4570T (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4570T.html), dual-core 2.9 GHz. I would like to put a quad-core processor in it, but I am concerned with the potential for increased power consumption and thermal load.
I am looking at the following options for upgrading it:
i5-4690K (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4690K.html)
i5-4570S (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core%20i5-4570S.html)
i7-4785T (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4785T.html)
i7-4790K (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7-4790K.html)
As I said, my major concern is increased power consumption and thermal load. The Thermal Design Power (TDP) of my current processor is 35 watt. The TDP of the processors I am looking at upgrading to range from 35 watts (the lower powered i7-4785T, not my first choice) to 88 watts. If I go with a TDP of 65 watts or 88 watts, is my heat sink going to be able to handle the thermal load? And is the power supply going to be able to handle the added power consumption. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

A:ThinkCentre M93p Tiny: upgraded processor to Xeon E3 1275L V3 (CPU)

It has to be one of the processors it could be ordered with, else the BIOS won't recognize it and fail to post (boot.) Search above for others who have upgraded their processor.
edit:   the processors known to work, are those it could be ordered with.  The majority of owners that upgraded outside those, were unsuccessful in getting them to run.

Bottom Line. If I spend the extra money for the increased speed of graphics that the 1575 offeres w/Pro Iris, should I also speed the extra money for the M5000M to best utilize that extra "bandwidth" capability or are the two unrelated?

I'm looking for a Xeon E3-1235 cpu (LGA 1155 socket) to build a server, I read here in a post from almost a year ago that not all 1155 MOBOs can handle the Xeon cpus.

Is this true?

In Newegg they have normal 1155 boards and 1155 Server boards.
Since normal boards are much cheaper and I won't use all the features in server boards I was planning to get a normal board.

Should I get a server board instead??

A:MOBO for Intel Xeon E3-1235 LGA 1155

Unlike the last generation Xeon 1156 chips (X3440, X3450, X3450), the latest Xeon 1155 chips (E3-1230, E3-1235, E3-1240) are not known for their compatibility with non-server boards. For whatever reasons, manufacturers did not update the microcode on non-serverl boards to facilitate the Xeon 1155 chips.

I would suggest a server board for the Xeon E3-1235 CPU.

First off, I need to explain a few things:

I am quite the newbie to hardware, and everything I "know" has only come from trial, and error. I am not one of those techy guys, and most of what I say will be be entirely based on things that I have learned through my own experiences - Not from facts. I make my decisions based on things that I assume, and perceive. I apologise for any offense, or irritation I may cause within this post. I don't stick to the "norm", and I do not tend to reach out for help, unless I really truly feel that I need it. In this case, I feel the need to ask for help. So here I am.

I know my system is old. Please do not blatantly tell me to get rid of it, or to buy an i3, i5, etc.
I would like the questions that I am asking to be answered directly, and to the point.

Well, I've had a 'Dell Precision Workstation 490' for some time now, and I have used it for 'Online' games such as MineCraft, and RuneScape without any issues. However, I am not receiving as great as a performance as I assumed I would have. I know little to nothing about Xeon Processors, and their capabilities. I only really learn as I go, and since this is the first time that I have ever actually had a hands on experience with Xeon Processors, it's a new thing to me.
