What speed FSB and CPU does this Motherboard support ?

    It appears to be an Inspiron 530 motherboard.

    The 0RY007 motherboard, supports Core2 Duo processors only, does not support Quad 4.

    The specifications for the 530 are HERE

    Note. The 530 systems were build with two different models of motherboards, the 0RY007 and the 0FM586 motherboard that supports, both Quad 4 & Core2 Duo processors.

  • Katmandu2,

     

    The fastest Core 2 Duo I've seen listed for an Inspiron 530 is the E8500.  I would also think the E8600 would work since it is a 45nm and 1333 FSB CPU as well, but don't know that for sure.

     

    Bev,

     

    Have you ever heard of a 0K216C motherboard for the 530?  I found several sites indicating that this motherboard also exists for the Inspiron 530.

    Nope, I've not heard of that part number for a Inspiron 530 Mini Tower motherboard.

  • I also have an Inspirion 530.  It currently has 4x1Gb of 800Mhz memory and an Intel Pentium Dual E2160 1.6 GHz Socket 775 CPU.  I purchased it with Ubuntu, which has been upgraded to 9.10 (32-bit).

    I realize that any 32-bit OS will normally only address 4Gb of RAM (max).  However, Ubuntu has a 64-bit desktop, and the PAE server kernel (32-bit) has extension that will allow it to address beyond 4Gb.

    The documentation posted above shows that RAM may be 667/800Mhz, and that max memory is 4 GB (Inspiron 530 only ) / 8 GB(Inspiron 530a/530c).  The mobo has 4 slots and the documentation shows memory capacites of 512M, 1G, and 2G.  So, will the mobo take 4x2Gb ???  And will it take >800Mhz?  The reason I ask is that Dell support offers Corsair 4x2Gb PC2 6400 DIMMs as an upgrade option.

    Additionally, the documentation show the processor type to be Intel® Core 2 Quad processor, Intel® Core 2 Duo processor, Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor and Intel® Celeron® processor.  Also, Dell support upgrades offer both Core2 Duo and Quad Core processors.  So, what can the mobo really handle?  What is the high water mark in the following categories:  FSB speed, # of CPUs, and speed of CPU.  Also, are these limitations hardware or BIOS?

    Thanks

    Doug

  • @Jeff

    From what I can tell, the K216C appears to be an overseas version of the 530's motherboard. 

  • Downix,

    Thanks for the input.  It came up on a site that listed specs for it servers and I didn't have any information on this model.

    In this example, does the 1333 FSB mean that the RAM can go beyond 800 MHz?

  • So, a little more research...

    The 530 motherboard is based on the G33/ICH9 chipset.  This supports either DDR2 memory at up to 800 MHz or DDR3 at up to 1066 MHz.  Obviously, my 530 supports the former.  So, buying memory faster than the 800 MHz is a waste.  It also supports  1333/1066/800 MHz System bus and suggest the processors listed in the documentation link.  The only thing that I'm not sure of at this point is why Katmandu2 makes the statement that "The 0RY007 motherboard, supports Core2 Duo processors only, does not support Quad 4."  The chipset seems to support the quad, but perhaps the 0RY007 has something about it that can't function with a quad CPU.  That being said, under my system tag, in addition to Core 2 Duo's, Dell offers as upgrades the following:  a Q8200 2.33 GHz 1333 FSB Quad Core Processor, a Xeon Q8300 2.6 GHz Core 2 Quad Processor, and a Q9400 2.66 GHz Quad Core Processor.  Is there any reason to believe that these won't work?

    The G33m02 [Dell P/N ORY007] is a depopulated [cheaper] version of the motherboard that has only has 6 voltage regulator IC's, as opposed to the 11 voltage regulators on the G33m03 [Dell P/N 0FM586] motherboard, that supports both Core 2 Duo and Quad Core processors,

    Surely, the Inspiron 530 does not support DDR3 memory has this requires a different slot, to the DDR2 memory.   DDR3 memory will not fit into a DDR2 slot and vice versa.

  • Thanks!  I had found that the DDR3 did require a different slot, and couldn't work.  However, I was still baffled by the CPU.  I'm still surprised that Dell lists Quad core processors as potential component upgrades under my service tag though.  I ended up ordering an E8500 Core 2 Duo 3.16GHz Processor from Newegg.com.

    You are welcome.

    Nice processor upgrade, but before installing you need to update the BIOS to the latest version.

  • Hmmmm.   And how do I apply 530_1018.EXE (a Windows, or at least DOS, program) from the Dell-installed Ubuntu OS?  Do they also provide a Linux bios-flash?

    As far as I know, you can not upgrade the BIOS though Ubuntu, as the software for this is an .exe that executes in windows.

    You could try posting this in the Linux forum HERE and see if there's a solution there.

  • Well, THAT was painful!  After downloading the 1.0.18 update, I attempted to update several times via FreeDOS bootable CD and USB flash drive methods.  All were unsuccessful, even (thankfully) when I booted into FreeDOS and got a read error running the 530_1018.EXE update utility!!!  I was finally able to accomplish the update by booting with an old Win98 Recovery CD while the USB drive with the update was in the system.  Perhaps, Dell needs to add a little bit to it's support of the Ubuntu community ;-)

    Doug

    BTW:  Microsoft does NOT help this process.  Trying to create a bootable CD from Windows Vista or 7 is even more painful that what I did attempt!

  • webservant

    Pleased to hear you found a solution that works.

    Yes, I agree that Dell's support can be less than adequate at times.    Sad
