The CPU should work, it is only the binning that separates it from other Phenom I CPUs.
I think the M2N32 boards could handle a 140W CPU given that you do not overclock it.

I don't believe any of the M2N boards are made to handle 140W CPU's. That's not to say some of our OC'd 125W counterparts aren't putting 140W to shame, but they aren't "officially" supported. Besides, why a Phenom I? Surely you can get your hands on a Phenom II much easier.

I stand corrected. In the validations some users have used 140W Phenom II CPU's.

Well the 965 I bought late last year is finally showing some promise. I haven't messed with it since I bought it but overclocking looking good so far. 3.5ghz was easily reached with 1.37v. I now have 3.6ghz stable at 1.41v. Several IBT Maximum 10xruns and 6+ hours of prime95 stable. It's funny because 1.4v almost fooled me into being stable but a 2nd go around of IBT failed at the last run and when I bumped the voltage one more notch everything felt way more snappy. From the second windows loaded, programs responded instantly, virtually no wait time for Firefox to load from the first start-up run. I was impressed. Anyways, here's the validation. I plan to keep pushing it tomorrow.

ps - Oh and only 45c load with IBT. I love this man cave downstairs in the house. Perfect environment for an OC'd rig. smile.gif

Trade off some multi for refclock and it will be even snappier.

I have considered it but my system was never much a fan of that in the past. Right now I'm trying for 3.7ghz. ITB standard BSOD on me at 1.41v, so I bumped it to 1.43v and it ran standard fine, but just now BSOD on maximum about 4 runs in. I think I may try 212x17.5 for a 3.7ghz test. Do you think it would be good to bump the cpu/chipset HT voltage as well? It's sitting at 1.2v right now. I haven't touched it yet since I'm just messing with multi, but for all I know it's holding it back.

Also while I'm chatting about it, what 'exactly' does CPU voltage offset do? My only choice is 100mv.

EDIT: whoops, forgot to change the multi in ntune before I changed it. 18x212 booted just now. So I'm at 3.8ghz, lolz...

EDIT2: It's interesting how much ITB can tell you from the Linpack Output. The first 3.7ghz run on ITB maximum was about 102s and varied from 41-43gflops and BSOD before finishing.
Now with 17.5x212 it ran ITB maximum successfully and averaged about 93s at 43.8-44.5gflops. So it is definitely more stable. But I can't imagine it really is stable at the same voltage it BSOD on with just multi. Going to do another pass and then run prime.

Cpu offset voltage increases by .100v (eg;1.35-1.45) what it is mostly used for is raising the upper limit of vcore.eg;1.55v-1.65v) for extreme ocing.
WARNING-decrease cpu volts by .100v before enabling offset, then adjust from there.

Makes sense. I thought it might have helped with vdroop or something. I seem to be doing ok right now. Another pass of ITB was successfully. prime95 is stable 40 minutes in so far. Might let it go for 6 hours or so and do a 20x run of ITB JUST TO MAKE SURE.

EDIT: Hrm, well this throws me for a loop a little. I ended up stopping prime95 after close to 6 hours of stability Ran IBT for 10passes 2 more times and all is well and dandy. The CPUz dips were perplexing me so I was curious to see if bumping cpu/ht voltage up to 1.25v would change anything and it BSOD after 3 passes in IBT. So I changed the voltage back to 1.2v, run IBT again and it BSOD on the last pass. Now mind you it had already successfully passed maximum 3 seperate times + prime95 for 5 hours.

So I bumped the voltage to 1.45v and IBT errored this time instead of BSOD. Blargh. Felt like I was so close with 1.437v and now I feel like I'm not close.

EDIT2: Well now this is getting stupid. I've tried variations of cpu/multi in every way possible for 3.7ghz and it has pretty much been BSOD. Anytime I test at 1.46v it seems to just BSOD pretty quickly. I though 218 x 17 @ 1.45v with a bump in cpu/ht volt was going to be the magic number but it BSOD when I multitasked with IBT running. I'm beginning to think I'm at a wall even though I can boot into 3.8ghz fine (btw which I tried stressing for the hell of it at 212 x 18. Did standard IBT and it BSOD within a minute, lol.)

Need advice on what to mess with. Heck i wonder if my 3.6ghz is even stable now with all the loops I have been thrown today.

Right now 212 x 17.5 @ 1.45v looked to be the most promising. If I swap it around and go 218 x 17 should I change any other voltage settings? Or drop the divider on my RAM? I was thinking maybe it needs a downclock to 667 but RAM tweaks still throw me for a loop when overclocking. Mind you these are 1066 sticks so they can handle the speeds, my board is another story.

If you're OC'ing via ref clock, I would try using Phenom MSR tweaker. I found this to be much better when i was overclocking my system versus Ntools because every time I would try a new setting, BSOD and more BSOD's. Once I disabled Ntools, I found that i was able to run the same settings in Ntools but at a much lower voltage. I basically do my ref clock though the BIOS and set my multipliers with MSR Tweaker. I found Ntools to be very frustrating when OC on this board.
