    Well Hello Everybody!
    I have installed the replacement board (GA-EP45-UD3P) and everything works!
    All is well. Now I want to OC the Q9300 back up to the 3GHz level and see how much I can push it, maybe 3.2 or 3.3? How ever the BIOS is different than the P43-ES3G so I could use some help in that regard. Where might I find a BIOS template for this board?
    Here is what I had in my BIOS before I ruined the board.Attachment 3358
    I also have some pictures of it. May it rest in peace. But I can not seem to be able to insert them any tips?
    I lapped the processor, It turned out to be really concave. Again I have pictures if I can get them up. Although unconventional, I am afraid of nothing, my method works quite nicely. I put the processor in a socket 775 holder that I cut from a bad motherboard which I got from a local computer repair shop, leaving ~1 inch around the socket. I cut a piece of Plexiglas (for a flat low mass surface) the size of my orbital sander, yes sander, and then put the sander in a vice paper side up and used different grades of "wet or dry" sandpaper 220 to 2000 grit in 6 steps. then used "Semichrome" polish on sheets of paper on a flat surface to finish to a mirror surface. Used "Windex" as a lubricant with the sander. Then the usual cleaning steps.
    My new board has a heat pipe and a MUCH BETTER cooling arrangement for the Northbridge chip so I do not need the XIGMATEK Porter-N881 product number CAN-S8HH1-U01 cooler for socket 478 platform. It is for Intel 865, 865G, 845, 845PE and 875. It has just enough offset to clear the giant Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler (actually intended to accommodate a 80mm fan.) Let me know if you are interested before I put it on eBay. It really solves the clearance/heat problem nicely. Although the mounting of it is a "made by a sadist for a masochist." Seriously, not to bad if you have the board out. If I had taken the board out I would have a functioning MB. After working on the Northbridge/Southbridge chips I can tell you that they can use all the cooling help they can get. The heatsinks are attached with the thermal tape that has not very good contact or conductivity. Used my "lapping machine on the lot of them.
    I'll try to post pictures in subsiquent messages.

    Looking good man!

    Nice to see the new build went smoothly!

    You can get a P45 template from the link in my signature

    This is the dearly departed computer RIP. I will post some of the new one shortly. Notice the Northbridge cooler. New build looks even nicer. The memory fans fit better.

    Maybe 3.5GHz? More? How rae your temps so far?

    Hi Chike,
    12 hrs of Prime; Default BIOS
    Core Lo Running Hi Stop IBTx10 (32GFlops)
    0 50 65 70 52 67
    1 39 57 61 43 60
    2 43 58 64 46 62
    3 47 64 68 51 66

    Let's saddle up and see how this bronc can kick!
    I am unfamiliar with some of the options available in the new BIOS. What should we start with? Lets try for 3GHz for starters. Remember I have the G.Skill memory in it now. :-) And Lots of cooling! ;-) I downloaded the templates from profJim's signature.
