nick1551Hey guys, looking to bring some cheap life back to an old system for a friend. Want to pick up a X5670 or similar as they are running around $70-90 used online and an ssd. I see all over the place the mod for the other x58 evga boards, but none for the micro. Anyone have any info on it? I've seen the other threads mentioning the micro but contacted support and they verified my rev 1.0 board will need the 83 bios and the mod to run it. TIA.
kpforce1 Yes, I was able to get the info. Attached is a schematic of the resistor that has to be moved. For the X58 E756 motherboard, the R460 resistor appeared to be nothing but a short or jumper connecting two points together so I just removed the resistor from its original spot (R460) and soldered the two points together that you are supposed move the resistor to (R461).
nick1551 ---- This is the info I received from another forum member, quoted above. I haven't tried it yet, but he confirmed its as simple as removing r460 so that it is open and shorting r461. This is next to the Northbridge. Hope this helps all looking for this answer. I was looking for quite a while until Kpforce1 hooked me up..! Good luck ALL.
