ECS GeForce6100PM-M2
#1
Hi there,
I'd really like to add Phenom II support to my board (Socket AM2+). I've already replaced the original AGESACPU.ROM with another one from a GIGABYTE board, but I'm not sure if this is going to work, and as I don't want to brick my bios, I've not yet tried to patch the modded bios.bin to my board. I just want to upgrade my board with a Phenom II X4 810 CPU, its for socket AM3, 938 pins, 95 Watts (cause my board only supports up to 95 Watt processors). Thx in advance

Sadly i am unsure about how CPU Support works , with intel processors i know it has something to do with microcode replacement , which tells the board what chips to use , Intel doesnt release these microcodes however , so i have no idea what chip has which code. AMD's are no easier

Sorry, maybe someone else can help you though

Well would it be possible to get the whole thing working with the agesacode file from another board? The original file from my bios looks like this:

. As far as I see it, it should work. Correct me if I'm wrong. The only problem seems to be the AGESA version: mine is 3.1.1.0 the other one is 3.5.3.0.

Hmmm thats interesting , in theory , replacing the AGESA rom with the more up to date one should add CPU support

Try it at your own risk , but if you do decide to go ahead , make sure you know all the risks and arepreared for the absolute worst (buying a new motherboard!)

Let us know how you go :d

good Luck!

yeah I am pretty excited to see this as well, as I was toying with the idea sometime back myself. Worst comes to worst buy a new bios chip.

well, now i thought, why not buy a new mb, case and ddr3 ram. I've bought one Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P board (socket AM3) with the amd 790x chipset, a midi tower 500 watts and one 2gb ddr3 kingston ram module (pc12800). Thats my new pc (with my old hdd 500gb maxtor, old dvd burner lg dvdram and graphics card nvidia geforce 9400 gt 1gb). I didnt wanna destroy my old board so ive decided to keep the cpu untouched till the new board is delivered. when everything is complete, i'll tell you.

Found out some info now

CPU Support is determined by the ACPITBL.BIN and also AGESACPU.ROM

Finding another board which supports the cpu you want , extracting ACPITBL.BIN and AGESACPU.ROM and replacing them over the older one into the bios you want modding should work Big Grin
