more than a year later comes my comment.

i just got a bunch of inspirons 545 motherboards, the DG33M06 which i was trying to use with some quadcores, but it seems this board doesn't like th bsel mods with tape. I searched the forum and found a topic about hidden settings on the inspiron 530 (DG33M02 i think), the thing is i would love to make the bsel mode to a q9400 from from 1333 to 16000 mhz, aparently the PLL is a Silego 84516BT does support a 400 mhz bus selection.

You seem the only ones in all the internet talking about this board and i wonder if such a thing is possible, i am very new to hw modding at this level, can a motherboard with 1333 max specifications, turn into a 1600 supporting board ?

i got plenty of dg33m06 boards to play with, i even have a floppy drive and some disks to reflash the firmware in case of a bad flash.. so.. i would love to play if you have the interest and the time.

best regards.

Thanks, i see.  

its just that DG33M06's PLL does list the 400 mhz bus selection so i thought it might be possible for the board to actually run at 1600 mhz fsb and it was just a bios restriction or something like that.

thatks for your replay.
