    Ok so hello to all this is my first post on this forum .. wanted to say thanks for all the info in regards to this mod . I went from an E8400 to this E5450 on my old GA P35 DSEL v2 and I cant even believe how much of an upgrade this is, everything is so much zippier .. I feel like Ive spent at least $500 yet .. only $32 for the cpu and sticker ..the downside that turned into a plus ... was the stock intel e8400 heatsink had been on there for so long the push pins became brittle and there was no chance on saving it so as luck would have it I found a Zalman 9700 led for only $20, it said refurb on ebay but it showed up new in retail box lapped and mirrored with new bottle of grease ! followed some advice on here in regards to removing the harddrive cage to increase airflow . also adjusted TMJ in realtemp to 85 but Speedfan didnt have a way to adjust but it appears to have correct temps anyway my question is in regards to core temps .. looking at my MAX and MIN for all 4 cores there is only a 6 degree gap at idle ..but a 12 degree gap during load is this normal ? ps ...does anybody have the 8f bios for the Ga-P35-dsel v.2 with the 771 microcode injected ? preferably one thats been tried and used , lol

    Sure you can adjust speedfan , in configure / advanced / Intel core (or something like that) and you can set an offset, positive or negative, but maybe it uses right Tj max.
    According to intel's (old) specs max difference may be 10c (+-5c) for the DTS at temps near Tj max, just above 50 even 15c (+5c/-10c or +10c -5c I don't remember exactly) but I've never seen such a difference.
    I the load even on all cores? e.g. only one monitoring software running and prime95, or just OCCT which has monitoring built-in.

    @Majorblunts

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is your motherboard model GA-P35-DS3L?

    It looks like the P35-DS3L rev 1.0 and rev 2.0 bios versions might be identical.
    The best way to confirm this is to download and extract the same version for each board, extract the actual bios files and then do a binary comparison to see if they are identical. If they are the same this will simplify finding or modding a bios.

    I suggest sending a private message (PM) to lukevega and ask him if he still has saved copies of his P35-DS3L modded bios.

    Luke started with an E5460 cpu with his P35-DS3L and later upgraded his cpu, motherboard and ram.

    Look at some of his posts where he has included several Cpu-z screen-shots in one post.
    It's important that we know accurate details about your hardware.

    Your different cpu core temperatures might be caused by:
    • thermal grease (TIM) that has incomplete or uneven coverage
    • the cpu cooler is not properly attached to the motherboard where it might not be perfectly seated on top of the cpu

    Take a look at several of Luke's core temperatures in this thread and you'll see that with practice, he was able to get a normal core temperature spread.
    Hot dang!!! I guess that this Xeon thread is never going to end.

    Jim you only have yourself and your top notch advice and expertise to blame for the length of this thread! (and perhaps my constant nagging...)

    I seem to remember not having to inject any microcodes into the BIOS for my X5460 and just had the latest BIOS (f9C?) there was from the Gigabyte website.

    I added microcodes to a BIOS later on for my EP45-UD3P and X5470 CPU following a guide on the website I found the xeon mod on. It might be worthwhile posting a request to the pro BIOS modder stasio in the Gigabyte Modified BIOS thread?

    I wish I had more time to continue overclocking my system but once again life is getting in the way :/ I promise to return with more nagging though!

    How are your systems coming along professor?
    GA-EP45-UD3P 1.0, Intel Xeon X5470, 4x2GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066, NVidia Geforce 8800GTS 512, Kingston V300 240GB, Noctua NH-U12P with 2x Noctua NF-P12 Push-Pull, Corsair HX520W, Antec P182, Windows 7 64-bit

    Update using a raid0 array for the O/S drive:

    I did a clean win7 install using two Crucial BX100 250GB ssd's in a raid0, high performance setup.
    The BX100 ssd's are budget units that perform quite well, especially when the price of the high end Samsung and SanDisk ssd's cost about 50% - 60% more. If you want to run a raid0 setup, you might want to check out the newer Crucial MX200 ssd's as their price should only be about 10% - 15% more. Don't buy two 128GB ssd's for a raid setup, as the smaller ssd's will probably have a significant performance penalty.

    Unfortunately the Crucial Storage Executive software does not currently work with a raid0 array, so it's a good thing that I had previously upgraded the BX100 firmware to the most recent version when I first got them.

    My current modded bios uses the 8.9.1 raid Orom, so right now, the TRIM command does NOT get passed to the raid0 array.
    With older systems, Fernando recommends the 11.2 raid Orom for maximum performance and allowing the TRIM command to be passed to the raid array.

    Once I have my backup system reassembled and running, I'll flash the EP45-UD3P bios to my newly modded F11e bios to see if TRIM works and if there's a performance increase with the 11.2 raid Orom.

    With my current 8.9.1 raid Orom,I ran two 4.012GHz AnvilPro tests, once with all C-states disabled and once with all C-states enabled.

    If you look closely you will see that I set aside 22% of the array as unallocated free space for ssd over provisioning. This will help with longer ssd life and should also provide additional performance. With no O/P space, the size of the array is about 466GiB which is the same as 500GB. With 22% of the ssd capacity reserved for over provisioning, the current size of the boot partition is now 360GiB.

    These are the results:






    I was kind of hoping that the performance difference would be much smaller so that I could justify running with these options enabled.

    I hope that everything is going well on your side of the pond.

    Jim

    ps: As I recall your ssd benchmark results are somewhat lower than my current results.

    A quick Amazon.co.uk check shows:

    • Crucial CT250MX200SSD1 MX200 250 GB SATA 2.5-Inch Internal Solid State Drive with Adapter - 74.94
    • Crucial BX100 250 GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal Solid State Drive - 66.99

    What purpose do the raid? for reading ?


    buy better SSD a better option and no problem ;) when you broke motherboard you can exchange to p35/45 ich 9/10/10R and other:) no problem, raid is problem must buy the same ich9/10. All these motherboard are already antiques and scrap, with the failure motherboard on p35 and p45, the best was asus p45q-E returns to the site below 4%

    I have to ICH10R https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzT...ew?usp=sharing
    so IOPS is the most important parameter...As we wait a few seconds longer anyone, nothing happens;)

    Your Anvil ssd benchmark results are artificially inflated and meaningless.

    Plextor's PlexTurbo ssd caching using system memory is similar to Samsung's Rapid Mode and Crucial's Momentum Cache software. These "performance enhancers" provide little or no real world improvements.

    From Plextor:
    PlexTurbo is an SSD RAM caching solution using system RAM to accelerate SSD storage performance.
    From Crucial:

    Risk of data loss: Enabling Momentum Cache leverages random access memory (RAM)
    to increase performance. Data stored in RAM is volatile and therefore at risk of being
    lost in the event of system power loss. Having a battery-backed power source is strongly
    recommended to reduce the risk of data loss in the event of unexpected power loss. Data
    loss may occur in the event of a system crash, such as a blue screen fatal system error.
    This warning applies to all applications that use system RAM for temporary cached data in RAM, including "RAM Disk" software.

    Check out the "average" benchmark results with a P5Q-E/Samsung 256GB 840 Pro ssd system at best SSD for P5Q-E? (sata 2) - Page 3, post #24.

    The attached benchmark results below show the artificially inflated benchmark scores with my Q9650/P35-DS4/Samsung 256GB 840 Pro ssd system.

    BTW, the low return rate for brand new motherboards is only one consideration when buying a new motherboard.

    Your ssd is a lower end "value" ssd, similar to my larger ssd's.
    It is unlikely that a higher end ssd boot drive will have noticeably better performance with our sata2 systems.

    On my side of the pond the prices for the 128GB Plextor M6S ssd are $80 - $143 and I bought both of my 250GB Crucial BX100 ssd's for $80 each.
    As I recall the price for my Samsung 256GB 840 Pro ssd was about $220.

    I can easily restore a backed up system image of my boot drive to another raid setup or an individual boot drive.
    Naturally my current EP45-UD3P O/S probably would not play nice with a different model motherboard unless I performed a SYSPREP procedure.

    Hi guys
    I ordered Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5460 and install it in my Gigabyte EP45-Ud3P mainboard .
    system boot and everything is ok but I have small problem here with cpu core count and threads count .
    Check following photo :



    my my cpu identified as 2 core and 2 threads? I see photo from other user who have same cpu and they have 4 core and 4 threads .

    please tell me how should I fix it ?
