Thread: Asus P5VD1-X with VIA PT-880 Ultra Chipset

  1. #1

    Asus P5VD1-X with VIA PT-880 Ultra Chipset

    I was wondering if anyone knows the cpu support for this mobo.

    The overview on Asus and on newegg says it has pentium D support,
    but the cpu support site on Asus doesn't have any listed supporting for any Pentium D's

    If anyone knows

    OR if anyone knows how good this mobo is?

    Thanks
    Davey

    is says on that page that it supports p4. you need to look a little harder before wasting everyones time.

    i, myself, have looked at this mobo, and considered buying it. it is a good quality mobo.

    odannyboy000 there is no need to be so rude.

    First, we can all miss something sometimes. Second he has a valid question. He is a little confused about the seeming conflicting CPU support information.

    Third, there is just no reason to be so rude.

    Think before you post odannyboy000.

    While you may view it as a simple question odeannyboy000, others may not have the experience to wade through apparently contradictory information. Thats part of what the forum is about and comments like that one aren't helpful. In future please refrain from derogatory comments like that and stick with helping provide the answers.

    I posted a reply to this in your other thread here.

    I don't know what is going on at Asus but their web site is not being maintained properly and sometimes is not even on line.

    According to the spec sheet for the motherboard it supports:

    CPU LGA775 socket for Pentium D/Pentium 4/Celeron CPU
    Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology ready

    All of the Pentium D processors are duel core and are not listed on the processor support sheet.

    I still wouldn't buy this board because:

    The PCI-E X16 only supports X4 that wouldn't be much faster than AGP X8

    It doesn't support DDR2

    It doesn't support SATA II 3.0GB
