M2n32 - SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition + Phenom 9500

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

So pretty much I went ahead and decided that I needed a new computer. I didn't play many games nor did I use any extremely intense CPU programs, with the exception of some video encoding and other file compression programs.

So you'll have to humor me on this "New" build that I've done. The reason why I have this type of build when there are obviously much better boards out there, was because even though I have the money, I really didn't like the idea of spending too much money in building this new PC.

Below are the specs for my system. Total exact cost of this setup: $491.65 (The only thing that wasn't bought brand new were 2 of the 3 hard drives)

Antec 900 Setup
M2n32 - SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition
Evga 8800 GT Superclocked Edition
AMD 9500 Phenom (B2)
Corsair 520W Modular
x3 500 GB SATA 7200 HD's
Crucial Ballistix (4 x 1GB) DDR2 at 4-4-4-12 2T 2.1v Timings (Manual)
Xigmatek S-1283 Heatsink
Windows XP Professional x64

And some optical drives.

BIOS: 1503

All components were bought in the past 2 weeks if that tells you anything about revision or version info.

So moving on, I am well aware of the TLB Error, but I don't think that will hit my performance needs badly. I'm using the 1503 right now because I have found that to be the most stable BIOS version.

I'm looking to start overclocking this CPU to try to at least getting 2.5 ghz without having to throw on water cooling (which I was originally going to do, but that would've raised my cost to $600) however I find the BIOS to be a little confusing.

I've read up a lot on overclocking systems, but what the hell, it's extremely hard for me to find the menu selections that all the articles are referencing.

I've been wondering whether I should try to overclock through the motherboard settings, or by using AMD Overdrive or the AI Booster Utility.

So sadly enough, I'm hoping that somebody who currently has this board can guide me through overclocking this thing. While I do understand that it's bad to just ask others to do most of the work for me, if I do mess up somewhere along the line, I don't want to it be because of some noob mistake.

That being said, all input is appreciated.

ok i had that board (great mobo). u need to find Jumper Free Configuration in the 2nd tab of the bios. All of the cpu overclocking options are in there, u can also change the RAM speeds by going into CPU configuration then DRAM settings. Dont use any of the AI stuff i got lots of BSOD's from them. All ways overclock from the bios its much safer.

I see.

I guess using AMD Overdrive isn't a feasible option?

well you can use AMD OverDrive but i would just use the bios as its safer.

Does anybody know the most successful clock to date with this Mobo and Chip?

No he can't the motherboard is based on the nforce 590 chipset, you need an amd 7 seriers chipset to use that.

Anyways, just drop your ram ratio and start upping the HHT link Freq, you should be able to get about 215 on it without a problem. I do think 2.5 on that chip may be alittle bit too high without water cooling but you can try. Good luck!

You guys will have to humor me on this thread.

Hard to say whether or not he has the more recent M2n's. Looks like it from the post date. Curious because he's running stable at 2.8 ghz. I also have 2 articles where they have it at 2.45 and one at 2.6 ghz. However because these seem like the only 3 articles dealing with the 9500 B2, was wondering if the community had a little more input on whether or not it's safe or possible.

Currently my cores run at 15-16 C idle.

I am wondering about overclocking in bios i am a noob at overclocking that is why i am here.I have the same board with a FX-62 duel core.I use AI-BOOST at 105% and it works but any more than 105% i get the BSD.

well I doubt a quadcore is really needed for video encoding and compression. do these even need 4 cores of processing or even take advantage of them?
