Asus P5Q Pro Turbo with Xeon

I've considered adding something along the lines of a xeon x5470 with a sticker to fit lga775. Just wondering if the bios code has to be altered even though the board supports 45nm, and if there would be any other issues like that.

  1. read the boards cpu support list . If your processor isnt on it then dont waste your time

    I already have a processor that will work with the board. I'm interested in finding a compatible xeon processor for overclocking. From what info I've found it should work. I just haven't done it before.
    update: Okay I grabbed a couple of xeon processors, one x5365 and one e5430 that I can try for overclocking.
  3. I have the ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo, with a Xeon X5470 onboard. I just did like you said with the adapter, and cut off some of the plastic guides.

    You will need to modify the BIOS, but I have already done so myself, and can supply the ROM if you are still interested. This BIOS is v0701 (or latest version as of post date), and supports any CPU's other than the X5470 (which I think there are not any) that have a CPUID of: 1067A.

    If you are looking to put a different Xeon on your board (which the 70 overclocks the best), I can modify the BIOS for whatever Xeon you would like that supports the P5Q. If I remember right you can do the E5450, the X5450, or the X5470.

    And you do not need a modified BIOS to boot or run general programs. The main annoyances are 1) A warning everytime you boot. 2) No Visualization Acceleration for x64 and/or quad core virtual machines.

    Hi KRKATANAKID, I don't suppose you have that BIOS handy still and could send me a copy? i've never modded a BIOS but now i think i might have need of one for my P5Q Pro Turbo and X5470. On windows 10 it gets past post, then displays the windows logo and thats it - it was fine on the E8500 it replaced, so i'm assuming W10 is not seeing something it needs? installation disks for previous OS's get to the install options so i don't think the chip is dead, or it wouldn't get that far - its just W10 being silly i think - but a new bios couldnt hurt!
