Hello everyone. thanks in advance for your time and kind reply.


Recently one friend gave me one LGA771 Xeon X5450 tu put in my board Asus p5q pro turbo wich have the 0701 bios.

Yes, since you are using an LGA771 CPU on an LGA775 board, and I assume that you used an adapter, there is a modded bios from 2018. Take a look HERE.

Thanks lads, i will carefull read the site, because i understand if i do something wrong it can make the board go bad.

i will update as soon this is done, thank you all
