it said cpu thermal trip
It means the CPU temperature is higher than the allowed range.

Make sure the thermal paste you used is a good one and check your heat-sink installation again, if the heat-sink doesn't sit straight on the CPU and properly secured, it can't help with cooling the CPU.

Nope... i dont have any other cpu okay but which Xeon CPU
https://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel/DG31PR.html

The Xeon are at the end of the list.

Someone says that Quad core should work but I can't speak about it without actually having tested, the Xeon are cheap now and should be able to give you a significant boost of performance (compared to the current E5200).

That's good, I'm afraid that you still use the plastic pins which could pop out any time, and pressing the pins down usually bend the motherboard.

Just a wild guess/suggestion since you've changed processors already - maybe there are bent CPU pins on the motherboard. See if there are any.

Alternatively, you can power off your PC, remove the motherboard's CMOS battery, it also help to initiate the Bios. If you can locate the Clear RTC pins, you can do it without removing the battery.

OK so we have some possibilities

- The motherboard is defective.

- The thermal paste you used is trash.

Thermal paste also has expiration date, especially the cheap one.

Try another brand of thermal paste to see.
Guess i have to change the motherboard
