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 from here: link
If the PCB is 2.X or the BIOS ID's 6th digit is 2, please download the BIOS SD37V2.X from here: link

The SD37P2 has 2 PCI-E video slots, and cause of that. The PCI-E 16x bandwidth will be dividing to 2 of 8X slots. If your video card can only support full speed 16X, It may not run with this system. Please check with your video card specification or contact your video card vendor for detail information.

This model can support four DIMMs of DDRII 667 of memory. If the system could not run stable with 667MHz on your DDRII, it will automatic adjust to 533MHz for stabilization of the system.

Because Adobe Premiere Elements have compatibility issue with Realtek audio driver. The new Realtek driver can solve this issue. Adobe has suggest the user has using Premiere Elements to go Realtek and download the audio driver Version R1.35 (Download) to solve this problem. For more information, we will suggest you to visit Adobe for more detail instruction.

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

  1. Please make sure to put the same memory DDR2 in the same color slot. (If putting memories into the different color slots, XPC will run in a Single Channel Mode.)
  2. If the memories have been set up successfully, the function of Dual Channel will be detected and will also show the message on the screen while XPC is starting. Thus the function of Dual Channel would be normally operated.
  3. If memories DDR2 set on the different color memory slots, it doesn't show “Dual Channel Mode enables” on the screen. And it will be a Single Channel Mode only.

Why my DDRII 800 only show DDRII 667 at POST screen?

According to Intel's SPEC for chipset 975X, it can only support up to 2 DDRII 800. If your memory modules show DDR667, you will adjust the frequency speed by manually in the BIOS. You may follow below instruction for setup.

  1. Boot Into BIOS, and select the Frequency/Voltage Control
  2. DRAM Timing Selectable selects the Manual
  3. System Memory Frequency select to 800MHz
  4. Press F10 key save to CMOS and EXIT
  5. Check the post screen is DDRII 800
