upgrade to X4 955 in m2n-SLI

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Forum,
I like to upgrade my older M2n Deluxe SLI board to a faster cpu, I'm en-loved in this board, so why to spend more money as necessary.
I have read some threats, that a x4 955 works on 1802 or 5002 bios version.
Everybody speaks about the nvidia performance tools under windows. This tool for Linux doesn't exist.
In Linux we have the possibility to change some parameters using Coolbits. Is that the same?
Which bios version is to prefer the 1801 or the 5001 -beta version?
Thanks for your replies

Here is a workaround tool for linux http://www.ztex.de/misc/k10ctl.e.html (thank you Dr Swizz)

Your board is an M2N-sli deluxe ? the title says M2N-sli,post says deluxe.

For deluxe you need bios 5001 if you have Nvidia gfx card, 1804 if you have ATI gfx card.

Check out the M2N club link in my sig for more help if needed.


Good luck

Thank you, yes it's a m2n SLI Deluxe board., Grafic card is and will be a nvidia, so I need to update the bios to 5001.
Now I have the things clear, what to do
