SD37P2

There are two versions of the SD37P2, V1 and V2. If you are not sure which version you purchased, please proceed as below to identify the version.

If the PCS is 1.X or the BIOS ID's 6th digit is 0, please download the BIOS SD37V1.x at: link
If the PCB is 2.X or the BIOS ID's 6th digit is 2, please download the BIOS SD37V2.X at: link

The SD37P2 has two PCI-E slots. The PCI-E 16x bandwidth will be halved to 8x speed on each slot. If your video card only supports 16x speed, it will not run on this system. Please check your video card specifications or contact your video card vendor for detailed information.

Yes, it does. Should it however turn out that it won't run stable, the system will automatically clock down the memory to 533 MHz to stabilise.

This is because Adobe Premiere Elements has compatibility issues with the Realtek audio driver. A new Realtek driver will help. Please update to version R1.35 (Download). For more information, please also visit Adobe.

To enable your SD37P2 DDR2 memory in Dual Channel mode, please refer to the steps below.

  1. Please make sure to put the very same DDR2 memory (type and brand) in the slot of the same colour. (If modules are installed in slots of different colour, they will run in Single Channel mode.)
  2. If the modules are installed correctly, Dual Channel will be shown on a screen when booting the XPC.
  3. Should the message “Dual Channel Mode Enabled” not be displayed while booting, the memory is running in Single Channel mode only.

Why is my DDR2-800 memory only displayed as DDR2-667 on the POST screen?

According to Intel's specifications of the 975X chipset, it supports a total of two DDR2-800 modules. If your memory modules are shown as DDR2-667, you will need to set the frequency speed manually in the BIOS. Please follow the below steps.

  1. Enter BIOS and go to Frequency/Voltage Control.
  2. Under DRAM Timing Selectable select “Manual”.
  3. Set System Memory Frequency to 800 MHz.
  4. Press the F10 key to save changes to CMOS and exit BIOS.
  5. Check the post screen whether it shows DDR2-800.
