Question
After I install a FSB 533MHz CPU on ECS G31T-M7(V1.0), it does not boot up. What's wrong? 


Answer

Since ECS G31T-M7(V1.0) is built with Intel G31 chipset which supports FSB 1333/ 1066/ 800MHz (333/ 266/ 200MHz) but NOT 533MHz, the M/B won't boot up when a FSB 533MHz CPU is installed.
It is a normal behavior due to the chipset limitation.
