[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 1007

Look at Fossil's posts further up on this page. He has similar board to you and see what he accomplished with a Phenom II X4.

Sorry I should have added this to my post above. It looks like the M2N-SLI Deluxe Mobo (not the m2n32) has a limited compatibility list. Unless that's just the list of compatibility from users here. I've been seeing a 965 (phenom ii x4 black) -- I'm not sure that it will run on this.

Whoops, sorry. Thanks gr8sho -- I will definitely look at his posts

Recently I purchased an Asus M2N32 SLI DELUXE mobo due to peripheral aggregates nice layout and be a little outdated soon their reasonable value.
Well all right to install the card and it begins to restart randomly.
I am using the following configuration.
Proc: AMD Athlon 64bit X2 4.2 +
Mem: Kingston DDR2 1GB 800MHz Kvr800d2n6/1g
Power: Bfg Tech 550W Real 550w V2.2 Modular Active Pfc 85%
Cooler: Cooler Evercool Buffalo
CMOS version: 5002
VGA's: Asus ATI 4770
- I put the processor under stress and see that your temperature increases significantly and immediately after the computer restarts, enter the BIOS and see that the temperature of both the processor cores are between 90 and 110 degrees ... do not know how this processor is not fried, but auditioning putting his finger on the bottom of the processor does not have the same amount of heat that is bug or motherboard ..
- I do not know WHAT I do, because I'm 80% sure that the problem is on the motherboard, as my hand ran perfectly this card processor and memories ....
- I thought about doing a CMOS downgrade to an older one, but do not want to risk it!
- I have not tried to overclock and do not know! but I configured the bios overclocking options as standard.
- Also put the configuration of the coolers performance. (aiming at higher rpms)
- I used this same processor on another motherboard, and does not have this problem.
- I'm sure the problem is on the motherboard.
I would like to know you can fix this problem in another way or just replacing the motherboard?

The official compatibility list that Asus publishes very is incomplete; basically all AM3 Athlon II/Phenom II CPUs work, except for Bulldozer & Thuban/Zosma CPUs.

Make sure your CPU cooler is mounted 100% correctly & check how high the voltage for the CPU is.

Hi guys wink.gif

I have m2n-sli motherboard with a Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (this is a screen)

wdwds.jpg

Uploaded with ImageShack.us


I want to change the processor because it is very slow with the new game available...

I search for a Phenom II X4 945 step C3 but i don't find very much and the price is much for me (200EUR)

So i search for a Athlon II X4 640 with a price of 100EUR but...

Are there other processor 100% compatible with this motherboard??

I know there are many processor not in the official supported list but they work..

Can anyone help me? Budget 100/150 EUR

Sorry for my poor english..

Your English is fine.

Please take a few minutes and read the past 3 pages of the forum. Specifically look for user Fossil who has a board similar to yours. Right above your post there is a very succinct summary of what's truly supported. Phenom II X4 is the highest performing multi-core you can put on this board.

On some of the boards, there was always a noted concern about the wattage rating of the CPU. For instance on an M2N32 top of the line board, 125W was the max you could use in that one. But lower grade boards could only do 95W i believe.

However, it seems that even for M2N board, several are using the 125W part. Caveat Emptor. smile.gif

The cooler is correct, since the voltages are in default on the motherboard, I did not overclock ....
I need more specific help for that which heats is the same chipset ...
tnx... thumb.gif

What tool are you using to check temps? Do you have another heatsink handy, perhaps the original that came with CPU?

I assume the heatsink mounts are undamaged. If the heatsink is properly applied with proper interface paste, temps should hover around 70C IIRC with good case cooling.

Although I haven't changed any hardware, upgrading from the factory installed bios to 5001 has a little odd artifact, where when I shut down (and indeed the power strip it's on for a total power off), and then later (after an hour or two) turn everything on Windows reports a startup error and asks if I want to run startup repair. If I run startup repair it isn't able to "fix" anything and just shuts off. Afterwards I can start it normally. Also if I am presented with this menu (run startup repair or start windows normally) I can just start windows normally.

The only thing I've done is updated my bios. So it's related to that. But my computer seems to be running fine.
