Question about P4S533 MB and P4 2.4A Ghz Processor

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus (More info?)

Greetings,

I am sure there is a very simple answer to this and hopefully someone out
there can assist.

Why won't the P4 2.4A Ghz processor work in an ASUS P4S533 mobo? I am
assuming it's probably voltage related or maybe it's just a firmware issue?

Thanks in advance...
Cheers
TC

    Do you have the A version of the processor? There are 2.4 Ghz processors
    that will work in this board. The 2.4A I think is called Preston core
    Pentium? This has 1M L2 cache and a 533 FSB. I am pretty sure the memory is
    not the problem as when the mobo powers up it sits there saying CPU Failure,
    CPU Failure over and over. The ASUS site does not list this processor as
    being supported on this board. It lists the 2.4 and 2.4 B which have 512 L2
    cache and 533 FSB.

    What firmware are you running on the motherboard? I know there is one
    version beyond what I have but it still doesn't list this processor as being
    supported.

    Cheers

    I see they make four different P4 2.4's now the Prescott, 800fsb, 533fsb,
    400fsb.
    that board will only run the 533fsb or 400fsb. My guess if you are right you
    have the wrong one.
    Hope you can exchange it. I built mine 2 years ago.
