    I have here an old 370DLE Board, wich works fine since 3 years (only
    with one CPU P3/1.0 GHz). Now I would upgrade this board with a second
    CPU (same type like the first CPU). But always after power-on, i hear a
    long beep-tone for ca. 2-3 seconds and the system hang. When I put one
    CPU off (cpu1 or cpu2), the system works fine again. With booth cpu's, I
    hear only the long beep. What can i do ? The BIOS is updatet.


    P.S.: Sorry for my plain english

    I have SM's P3TDDE Mobo running two P3 Tualatin processors. I have never
    heard of the problem you're having. I would e-mail SuperMicro Support at:
    . They have been able to answer all my questions

    Thanx for the tip, yes, I've got a answer. My problem is, that booth
    CPU's have two different steppings :-( . Now I'm searching a second CPU
    with the same SL-stepping.

    I have a mainboard for trash !

    Now i have two CPU's: same stepping, same voltage, same FSB, same
    Frequenz.... and it doesn't work.

    At the next step, i open my window.......

  5. If they are the Tualatin CPUs they need to be the (expensive) ones with 512K
    cache. I think that this is something configured into the CPU by Intel that
    defines if the CPU will work MP or not. This is actually documented in the manual
    and on the web site under "requirements"

    The older 256K CPUs do work fine in this board. I happen to have two at 733 MHz on
    the same motherboard, and it came up without problem.

    no, I have two older CPU's. Pentium 3, 1000 MHz, 256 KB Cache, 133 MHz
    FSB and booth are SL4C8, 1.7 V. The System came up with a very loooooong
    beep. The BIOS display also two CPU's and no error messages. After 30 or
    40 seconds the systems hang and I could only power-off.

    When I remove one of the two CPU's, the system works correctly again. It
    does not matter which CPU is removed.

    I'm crazy
