Hexxik, the M2N-X should have those options available. Look under Advanced -> Chipset -> Memory Controller -> Memory Configuration. The "memory configuration" screen should allow you to make these changes to your memory.

Let us know if that helps

Good luck

Did you managed anything? I will also have to OC a 5200+ using the same MB, and I'm courioius if i can do anything with it...
On my 4000+ this is what i realised so far i wil ltry to pull out 3.4 gigz when i'll have some time.
AS i saw the m2n-x has only ram divider setting and you cannot set the timmings...

Viperthevenom, nice overclock man

That memory overclock is pretty awesome as well. Are you Orthos/Prime stable at 3148Mhz? If so keep pushing.

Good luck

its stable(orthos 30min) i will push it further but as I read the memory usually maxes at 1100 so i can't push the CPU further because then i will have to lower the RAM..

lowering the ram for the purposes of overclocking won't affect your performance.

To the OP if you still have that board....IT IS NOT A GOOD OVERCLOCKER.
I had one for a long time and tried numerous times to overclock it, but the limiting factor is the vcore. It maxes out at 1.35.

I was only able to overclock my 4200+ to around 2.4 before it wouldn't even boot.
Don't feel bad you haven't done anything wrong - except for buying an M2N-X and think it's really overclockable.

Viperthevenom, in most cases 30 minutes is typically not enough time to check for stability. I'd recommend 8-10 hours at priority 9 (blend test). You could also try OCCT. Apparently the 1 hour test is equal to a 24 hour test in Prime 95. This is according to the programmer of the app so don't quote me on that.

Good luck and keep pushing
