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 de shown on a screen when booting the XPC.
  3. Should Dual Channel not be displayed during booting, the memory is running in 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
