I do remember reading that when I first wanted to upgrade my system. I was also worried about this but I can say that I have never experienced any issues with cold booting my system. I leave my system on 24/7 in about 7 months out of the year and i shut my system down almost daily in the summer time/ The only issue I have is getting into the BIOS with my USB keyboard but using a PS/2 Keyboard solves this problem.

The only problems that I have ever experienced booting was when I was running my NB way too high and the system basically refuses to boot until i took out the battery to clear the CMOS.

I don't even use Ntune with PMT. I used to use just Ntune but it gave me nothing but problems when ever I OC'd Pretty much lots of blue screens.

When I tired PMT earlier this year, OC'ing was a lot smoother and with the same settings that I had with Ntune, I was able to step down the voltage on my CPU to get it stable.

I recommend you get a C3 chip as they have a better silicon which means more OC potential.
As i can see from your sig you like the extra power tongue.gif

Ok thanks you guys are great. Can't believe N2Gaming is still running this thread, and these boards are still kicking.

I can certainly handle a one time workaround, and I have a wireless keyboard that uses PS2, as long as my very not technically inclined G/F redface.gif can just boot it and have it work, were golden.

Is it worth the potential bugs with the C3 chips or should i aim to find a c2?
From reading over some of the issues with the newer chips it looks like its worth it for me to find a c2. If i were the only user of this rig I don't mind some bugs, but my girlfriend likes to use a desktop on occasion and she can't handle that.
Seems i can find them used fine, so thats not a problem. I assume the major difference is the C3's have a higher overclock ceiling and can be found with an unlocked multi pretty easily? I doubt I'm going to try to go for 4+ ghz so I suppose it doesnt matter.
Looking @ some B93's atm...

to be honest with you I don't have a lot of time to play around with the settings and learning new techniques to overcome these bugs that you will most likely get with am3 cpu's. so for me it was worth to just upgrading to am2+ cpu and have less headache screwing around with voltages and what not.

Hi guys,

I am new to this forum, and I have been browsing this thread for a while in search for an answer to a question I have.

I wonder if a Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition CPU would work in my M2N-SLI motherboard (not a deluxe). I have updated the BIOS to the 5001 version. Any confirmation would be well appreciated because I am doubting whether or not I should by a second hand 940 CPU.

Yes it will work. thumb.gif

Ok since a few people (including me) have had some trouble with PMT not setting
the CPU at start up and having to restart the service, i decided to make my own
little app (M2N Tweaker) which corrects it when booting.

M2N Tweaker just runs in the highest P-State all the time so there is no Q&Q.
I have only tested it on the M2N32-SLI DLX running windows 7 64bit
but it should run fine if your system has below requirements.

If you have any problems PM me or post in this thread.

Requirements:

MOBO: M2N-SLI DLX (BIOS 5001) or M2N32-SLI DLX (BIOS 5002)
CPU: Phenom II X4 (955 - 980) BE
OS: Windows Vista+ with .Net 4.0 or .Net 4.0 client profile

just run the setup run M2N Tweaker (desktop shortcut is created on install) set the
multiplier and voltage, check "boot tweak", hit apply and restart smile.gif

I find the system runs more stable when CPU settings are left on auto in BIOS
however M2N Tweaker works just fine if they are not.

I also advise removing nTune and PMT as they might mess around with M2N Tweaker.

@N2 / Gyro
Could you add M2N Tweaker to the first page of the thread please and also test it.

Just validated the 965 BE
2492371.png

If anyone sees anything where I could do some more Oc, let me know. I'm pretty new to OC, and am just learning. Having fun though.thumb.gif
I noticed my max TDP is alot lower than most people who have validated, (65w), is this an important thing to change?

Hi, my first post after spending a few months reading through the pages.

I'm so glad I found this club - I wanted to squeeze out the best from this board that's been so reliable for me over the last few years

I've just been given a full 8Gb of A-DATA 800Mhz RAM and have ordered a 965BE for delivery this week (currently have a 5600+ Windsor) - the only issue I've had so far is that both NTune and PMT both have issues installing on Win7 64Bit for me.

Really hoping that the new Tweaker can help unlock the new CPU!

I'm at work now, will post pre-upgrade validation this evening (GMT)

Thanks for this.
I,m quite busy the next couple of days,but will try to test it later in the week.
I can't edit the front page,so N2 is the man for that.Shoot him a PM.

Looks ok, but the cpu volts are to high for that clock speed,lower it till cpu-z reads it as 1.35v-1.38v.(should be around 1.3375v in PMT for PO)
Also set cpu voltage to auto in the bios.
TDP for 955-980 cpus on AM2 boards uses the minimum powerstate (4x200=800mhz),you can not change this).

Good luck

The NVtools should install with the K8 Athlon x2,but PMT may need the K10 x4 965 cpu intalled first.
What gfx card are you using,ATI or Nvidia?

Good luck
