People who know, tell me please, if not difficult.
I have a motherboard Intel DG965RY board with Intel® G965 Express chipset. Bios version MQ96510J.86A.1761.2009.0326.0001 (the most recent). FSBs 1066 Mhz. On the Intel website it stated that the G965 chipset supports processors up to the E6700, and then xs - http://ark.intel.com/products/27729/Intel-82G965-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller
Question - where and how to find out, this motherboard with this BIOS will support 45 nm processors with FSBs 1066 Mhz? Such as the E7600. At E7600 processor FSBs = 1066 Mhz, which hints at a possible processor support from motherboard. But the 45 nm process technology puts everything into question.
According to the Spec. Update for this board, the highest supported processors are those in the E6000 series (i.e. up to the E6700). There is no mention of support for the E7000 series processors. I looked next at the release notes for the BIOS. Again, there is no mention of (microcode) support being added for E7000 series processors. I think you are out of luck...
I am not sure I understand why such effort for a board that is more than ten years old. Even if it were possible, the gain would be negligible.
Why not just purchase a board that supports an E7000 series processor you want, and save yourself a lot of time and effort for a venture that would certainly be unsuccessful?
Thank you very much to N. Scott Pearson and to Al Hill for all the information posted previously.
I just wanted to confirm the previous information as correct, the Intel® E7600 is not compatible with the Intel® DG965RY board, as you can confirm on the following link that shows the list of boards that will work with the processor:
And regarding your question, there is no microcode available to make it work with the board, let me apologize for that.
Any questions please let me know.
intel_corpAlberto from Intel, thx for answer.
LoLxD, All microcode for all Intel CPU are available to make it work with most of the boardes. But with another Brand, not Intel. Intel boards are not modified in most cases. LoL )))))))) This microcodes & bios are can be found on the Internet inthe specials. websites.
Question has been resolved. Topic can be closed. Thx for attention.
