hacked my LGA 775 motherboard

Postby b-man1 » Tue Jul 19, 2016 2:11 pm

so i've been gone for too long again...including not getting back to Losbot many months ago...

i found out that it's possible to hack LGA 775 boards (at least many of them) to work with LGA 771 Xeon cpus. i happened to have both, so i gave it a shot! my trusty old LGA 775 E8400 cpu (which is still darn good for most things i do) is now swapped out and running a Xeon E5440 (quad core) on my Gigabyte EP45-UD3P board.

my wife was enlisted to do the cpu mod, as she has far better coordination than i do! i took care of the motherboard socket mod (cutting the small tabs off to allow the new cpu to fit)

info here on how it's all done: http://www.delidded.com/lga-771-to-775-adapter/

i got the adapters off of eBay (about $1/each)...

a few pics of the process:

Somehow I missed this. I've gotta try it now.
