oh I forgot to say i have it under volted cuz i didnt have it overclocked and when i go to overclock i turn it up to about 1.475 and also tryed 1.5 which should be to much but cant get it to run at 220fsb with 15x multiplier it runs but will not boot and at 116 fsb i runs but isnt prime stable also tryed 14x multiplier and when i go to set it to 230 fsb it resets the multiplier to 15x and cant boot at that speed also tryed 12x and got it to run with a 270fsb but didnt boot i thinking i need to increase north and south volts and was wondering if you could tell me a good place to find a tutorial on how to do this i have never mess around with them and dont know where to start thumb.gif

Good luck pushing that Windsor much higher. They were horrible overclockers. A 5000BE or a Kuma CPU would be much better at getting the results you are looking for.

This board is so old I don't really know what it is capable of in this department of hardware.

I don't know much about caching but most ppl tend to put their most important programs, OS, and which ever games they are playing on the SSD. The SSD's that I have seen working on this board would be the SF-2xxx/1xxx drives if you have the right firmware, Intel 320 series SSD, and the Crucial M4.

Running a Intel 320 series SSD which is a older SATA2 model which is based on a updated controller that's used in the X-25M which been working just fine for me for the last 11 months. As said before, our boards do not support AHCI coming off the Nforce SATA controller with the exception of the M2N-SLI deluxe which has 1 marvell port which does but is not fully supported.

With all that said, the SSD is by far one of the best upgrades I have made within the last year and don't let the whole lack of AHCI/TRIM scare you off from one. I have been running a test for the last 6 months on my board by not running the Intel SSD toolbox which is basically Intel's version of TRIM Most of the newer drives have their own internal garbage collection. I have noticed about a 20 point drop in my AS-SSD bench scores since i stopped using the SSD toolbox which is not bad but it confirms that the Nforce controller does not pass windows 7 TRIM command properly. The degrade in performance is happening much slower then i first thought. ( I can't feel the diffrence)

If you decide to get one, make sure you flash to the latest firmware since some drives like the M4 will run below SATA2 speeds and firmware also fixes any other serious issues with the drive. Might want to check out this guide as well http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread

You do not need to increase the voltages to the north & south bridges.
It is either the CPU or the memory that holds back your overclocking.

Thank you your post was very informative. I glanced at that topic the other night which helped out a little as well. My reason for wanting to use a Cache drive instead of an SSD replacement is the whole splitting the OS/programs, etc. It's this nagging I have for wanting to keep everything on one drive so I figured a Cache drive would be a better solution.

Can you say a bit more about why you want to use an SSD as a data and application cache rather than a straight boot drive? Being able to boot off of an SSD is a major advantage in terms of performance and how you will feel about your system.

I missed your last reply on this topic which explains your position. The odd thing about that logic is by using a cache, you're still having to deal with separation across physical drives, even if the cache manages that for you. Having lived with the separation of data now for some time since making the transition to SSD, I am not in the least concerned about this situation. I have far too much data to fit on one physical drive anyway, and the thought of that one boot device failing and losing data makes my skin crawl. Separation here is a good thing.


And speaking of SSDs, one of the things I regretted most about my M2N32 rig was not using a Raid-0 drive config. I will now finally be making that step with dual 120GB Vertex-3 drives later this week.

Because I do not want multiple drives to carry everything that is currently on my single HDD. I either want an SSD large enough to just move everything over too or go the SSD Cache way and just have the most used/active programs receive a speed boost that way. It's just the way I would prefer to have it setup.

I've checked out several reviews on Cache drives and tbh they really don't seem to be that far behind just having a true SSD as the storage device.

You will likely be blazing trails on such an old board. Nvidia SATA controllers have been problematic to some SSD manufacturers. If you go down this path, would love to read about your results.

thanks well ill see what i can do with other cpus i have a 5000+ brisbane i also have a 4600+ and a 8400+ i was using the 8400+ for a short time but my fps was alot lower in games with that so switched back to a 6000+ which i have 3 of them thumb.gif

I have tried 3 different PSs, different ram, single sticks tried in each slot, board stripped down to just CPU and ram, tried with a phenom 9500 and a sempron, I've reset the CMOS , replaced cmos battery, Im getting no beeps or post. Any ideas of what to try next or is the board dead?

You have a speaker hooked up for bios beeps, yes?
Try loading a bios on a bootable usb stick and boot with it plugged in.

Ebay has bios chips as a last resort, http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=m2n32-sli+bios+chip&_sacat=See-All-Categories
