Cant figure out which mobo i have

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok here is what the box says.... ASUS M2N-SLI <GREEN>

The Asus website does not have this mobo listed they have m2n sli deluxe...

Which mobo do I have exactly?

Not sure if this is the right topic but I'm having trouble OC'ing my PC.

I just built a budget gamer for about $700 after my house got robbed. A'holes took everything my PS3 Xbox 360 super nice LCD Tvs. So im broke right now, I also just bought a new truck right before this so my budget was tight on this one. Also for reference my fav game is Age of Conan so I kind of designed this for it.

ASUS M2N-SLI
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ 3.02 GHz
2X 1GB Crucial DDR2 800
BFG 8600GT OC2 512 MB
Vista 32 bit Home (I got sent the wrong OS so for know it will work)

I'll add two more Crucial sticks the same size later, or maybe get bigger ram.

pretty much it. I had to buy new keyboard, mouse, monitor, routers, so I went cheap on this one because I'm not sure if my insurance will work out because the deductible is so high.

I am trying to OC it in the BIOS under jumper... and I tried AI auto put it on 10x and it sometimes crashes. However when I tried OC'ing it manually (i dont know what im doing) i kept raising it up pretty high, but eventually it crashed.

So can someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks

The 6400+ uses a 16x by default.
So, when you drop the multiplier and up the CPU bus several things are effected.
1. RAM default speeds increase
You may need to set the RAM on a divider and then there are the timings and voltage.
2. The HT increases so you may have to reduce the default multiplier from 5x to 4. Keep the HT overall speed below 1300..
3. The MB chip sets may need voltage increased too as the load on them increases.
