Some geek help ^ ^

I've been looking all over about how to do this but I can't find any tutorials so maybe someone more knowledgeable then I like Ricky can point me in the right direction...

So I bought two E5410 CPU's which run at 2.33ghz... apparently by "pin modding" the CPU's with electrical tape or something... a BSEL mod... you can easily OC them to 2.8ghz... I've found a ton of posts online with people talking about doing but no information about how to actually do it with those processors...

Like this comment on the page for those CPU's on newegg...
EASILY MODDED TO 1600MHz FSB. I went on and QUICKLY found a SIMPLY mod that can be done to these chips to get them to run at 2.8 24/7 on RETAIL INTEL COOLING!!! WAHOO!!! I leave my box on for DAYS with 2 of these (8 cores) and it is 100% stable.

I looked all over and couldn't find it : ( So if anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it! I'll totally give you technical consultant credit ^ ^


  1. First off, I don't know if this works as I have a VIA ARTiGO, but it should at least get you in the right direction.

  2. Odd, I couldn't find illustrations for an E5410 bsel mod either. However, Jeremy is on the right track. The diagram on the second link (77937) shows the three bsel pins that are affected. If you cross check this with the Intel Xeon 5400 series data sheet

    (check the pin layout, bsel, which is bsel0=G29, bsel1=H30, bsel2=G30)

    you can see which bsel pins need to be covered.

    Here is a pix of someone doing the bsel mod for a Xeon E5150 (still socket 771 though).

    (go to the bottom of the article for the pix of the cpu with taped bsel pins).

    Perhaps when you get this working (fingers crossed) you can post pix for someone else who might need to do the same thing.

    Good luck and hope this helps.
