post #10091 of 12360
I did read it, but I'll probably have to read it again.

Here's a question that I should have asked. What is a good step up from my current :

That is not only a ph II x4, but also has more speed... (something above 2.2ghz) And that's still available. Maybe I don't need to try for something as high as the 965. (I'm not looking at the 980 because I'd rather have a cooler that comes with it rather than rigging my own cooling stuff, I only put the link to the 980 for others who wanted to find the cpu).

Another I'm looking at -- the 830

I might just be better off looking for a new mobo/cpu combo.

That price looks too good to be true.
I would never buy from an online store with such a low rating.

Since you seem to be looking to buy a cheap CPU, I think you should ask yourself if you actually need a quad core CPU; Do you run programs or games that are performing heay multithreaded computations? If not I suggest that you look at the dual core CPUs too, particularly the dual core Phenom IIs.

Looking at that link I think it's not actually a 955, but the copper heatsink AMD ships as a stock cooler. Probably just a play on the words to rip someone off.

Hmm yeah looks like it's just the heat sink. Should have realized ;-)

Thanks for helping me out.

I do some stuff with video compression, and game development, so compiling and so forth. So I do a bit that is cpu dependent. As far as quad core vs dual core, I don't know if I want to take a step back. I already have a quad core cpu even if it's an older one. To go back to a dual core seems like taking a step backward.

It doesn't actually have to be the latest (that my mobo can handle) cpu though. But something that upgrades my current processor basically.

So basically my criteria is as follows -- quad core, more ghz than 2.2, phenom II -- that's about it.

So anyone else with a processor suggestion for this board?

If you are looking for a phenom II, your best bet would be to go with either the 955/965 but these are getting hard to find these days. I have seen the 965/970 on the egg going for about $125 depending on which board you have. Don't matter which one of these you get since you can get these up to about 3.8 or more easily. If you are doing stuff like video editing, going to dual core is a step in the wrong direction.

Sharing some of my knowledge


I have now tested my Phenom II 960T with the following motherboards:

M2N-SLI Deluxe with BIOS 5001 (this BIOS seem to 100% identical to the 1901 beta 2 BIOS that the people over at www.bios-mods.com has made!).
M2N32 Premium flashed with 5002 BIOS for the M2N32 Deluxe board.
M2N32 WS Pro flashed with "1802B" modded BIOS that some polish guy who calls himself "Tomek" made and posted in the Asus support forum.

As expected, the 960T did not work with any of those motherboard & BIOS combinations.

I'm not really surprised since they couldn't get an actual 6-core Thuban to work either.
