Intel® Desktop Board D945PLRN Specification Update
PREFACE
This document is an update to the specifications contained in the Intel ®Desktop Board
D945PLRN Technical Product Specification (Order number D36109). It is intended for hardware
system manufacturers and software developers of applications, operating systems, or tools. It
will contain Specification Changes, Errata, Specification Clarifications, and Documentation
Changes.
For specification updates concerning the Intel processor that may apply to this desktop board,
refer to the following:
•
Intel ® Pentium ® D Processor 900∆ Sequence and Intel ® Pentium ® Processor Extreme
Edition 955Δ, 965Δ Specification Update (Order Number 310307)
•
Intel ® Pentium ® D Processor 800∆ Sequence and Intel ® Pentium ® Processor Extreme
Edition 840∆ Specification Update (Order Number 306832)
•
Intel ® Celeron ® D Processors 300Δ Sequence Specification Update (Order Number 302354)
•
Intel ® Pentium ® 4 Processor Specification Update (Order Number 249199)
Unless otherwise noted in this document, it should be assumed that any processor errata for a
given stepping are applicable to the Altered Assembly (AA) revision(s) associated with that
stepping.
Refer to the Intel ® 945G/945GZ/945P/945PL Express Chipset Family Specification Update
(Order Number 307503) for specification updates concerning the 82945 MCH Controller and that
may apply to the desktop board D945PLRN. Unless otherwise noted in this document, it should
be assumed that any MCH errata for a given stepping are applicable to the Altered Assembly
(AA) revision(s) associated with that stepping.
Refer to the Intel ® I/O Controller Hub 7 (ICH7) Family EDS Specification Update (Order Number
307014) for specification updates concerning the 82801GB ICH7 I/O Controller Hub and that
may apply to the desktop board D945PLRN. Unless otherwise noted in this document, it should
be assumed that any ICH7 errata for a given stepping are applicable to the Altered Assembly
(AA) revision(s) associated with that stepping.
Nomenclature
Specification Changes are modifications to the current published specifications. These
changes will be incorporated in the next release of the specifications.
Errata are design defects or errors. Characterized errata may cause the desktop board
D945PLRN’s behavior to deviate from published specifications. Hardware and software designed
to be used with any given Altered Assembly (AA) and BIOS revision level must assume that all
errata documented for that AA and BIOS revision level are present on all desktop boards.
Specification Clarifications describe a specification in greater detail or further highlight a
specification’s impact to a complex design situation. These clarifications will be incorporated in
the next release of the specifications.
Documentation Changes include typos, errors, or omissions from the current published
specifications. These changes will be incorporated in the next release of the specifications.

Summary Table of Changes
The following table indicates the Specification Changes, Errata, Specification Clarifications, or
Documentation Changes that apply to the Intel® Desktop Board D945PLRN. Intel intends to fix
some of the errata in a future revision of the desktop board, and to account for the other
outstanding issues through documentation or specification changes as noted. This table uses
the following notations:

Intel® Desktop Board D945PLRN Specification Update
SPECIFICATION CHANGES
The Specification Changes listed in this section apply to the Desktop Board D945PLRN Technical
Product Specification (Order Number D36109). All Specification Changes will be incorporated
into a future version of that specification.
1.
The following note will be added to the Technical
Product Specification in Section 2.7.2.3 Add-in Card
Connectors:
NOTE
Capacitors required for the audio circuitry are located within the ATX keep-out area near PCI
Express* x1 slot 1, and may limit the use of some PCI Express x1 cards.
2.
The following note will be added to the Technical
Product Specification in Section 1.8.2 Audio Connectors:
INTEGRATOR’S NOTES
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage desktop board
components. Front-panel connectors should provide sufficient
protection to prevent ESD damage to components inside the chassis
enclosure.

Intel® Desktop Board D945PLRN Specification Update
ERRATA
1.
The placement of capacitors behind PCI Express* x1
connector slot 1 may prohibit some PCI Express x1 addin cards from properly connecting to the motherboard
PROBLEM: Due to the design and placement of the audio circuitry on this motherboard, it was necessary to
position capacitors in the keep-out zone behind PCI Express* x1 connector slot 1.
IMPLICATION: Some PCI Express x1 add-in cards may not fully connect to PCI Express x1 connector slot 1,
due to interference between capacitors in the keep-out zone and I/O connectors on the add-in card that are
located on the I/O bracket, in line with the edge fingers on the card.
WORKAROUND: None
STATUS: MAY BE FIXED IN A LATER HARDWARE REVISION.
