Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

GTX680 is somewhere near 1050Ti right? Not bad result...in my country there are used old hi-end graphic cards quite expensive so its better to go with some new midrangers. My plan is to test current setup and than change CPU and add SSD. If the results will be good Im in to buy some GC. Still its a...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

I need it primary for Lightroom 6, which can use 4-5 cores at best, maybe 6 but after that the gain is minimal...even 6 cores are questionable in case of performance/price. For most games is fast quadcore enought, most of them cant use more than 4 cores...maybe in future. I still wont buy any high ...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

Im happy for you and I have good feeling about it now and will be much much calmer during ordering X5677/5687 I didnt decided yet...where did you got W3690 and what price? I would like to have 6core at higher speed but I dont want to spend more than $50 so more universal solution is quad core with ...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

All this is really weird...if they was selling M470-2 with such a configurations there should be updated bios and microcode somewhere!? :lol: maybe you will have more luck with W3680 (march 2010) as the latest microcode update is from november 2010 and W3690 from feb 2011. But I still cant understa...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

...so finaly it looks like all M470-2 are D2778-C1x or later so they should support all X56xx processors. Acc to fujitsu support page original M470 are with rev. Axx or Bxx. Hope Ill avoid missing microcode errors. Mine is the M470-2 with the C revision motherboard and my Xeon X3690 doesn't work pr...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

Searching on support.ts.fujitsu, I found the latest Fujitsu microcode update to only include CPU microcodes up to Clarkdale 2010 while your new CPU W3690 Westmere was released Q1 2011. http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/indexdownload.asp?Softwareguid=9B9B360E-DD12-4A4D-87D3-E5BCC25BBAA7 I'm not able to ...

I've told my BIOS not to halt on errors so it'll boot without issue.

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

Have you installed all the Windows updates? For example: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3064209 And Intel chipset drivers. Other than that it's something only a BIOS patch can fix. It's all up to date. Thanks for your help. I don't understand why it's doing it. I have the latest BIOS and th...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot

If you can access the BIOS, there is one option that might be useful: Advanced>CPU Mismatch Detection> [Enabled] About the shutdown issue, is there anything you changed before the problem appeared? That is usually software related (drivers, background process or bios settings, etc). It is a common ...

Re: Upgraded CPU in M470-2 - get microcode error on boot
