Thanks for answering my questions to both you and Gyro. I am pretty excited to go with this upgrade and keep my m2n!

Just ordered the 965, going to grab a ps2 keyboard as well just in case.

Will definitely be posting updates. Feeling pretty confident now, read over the AM3 installation a couple times as well.

It only sounds complicated.
I suggest you use Phenommsrtweaker for the workaround.
If you need help getting it set up just ask.

CPU-z just wants to crash even after uninstalling and reinstalling.

I might decide to do a fresh windows install sometime soon to see if that clears anything up.

@ sangbyung...I have an M2N32 deluxe running an AMD X2 6400+ and 2 x nVidia 9800 GTX+ (512 x 2) cards in SLI, 8GB DDR2 RAM, thermaltake 850W PSU, and Win 7 x64 and it runs great (usually). I would avoid flashing to BETA BIOS versions, though. Stick with a version that's official. I had crashes with 5002 and other beta versions. I think I'm running 2205 currently. I don't know how it works with other CPUs... the 6400+ is the only one I have.

I also have major overheating issues. I'm using a Thermaltake beast of a case complete with ~230mm fans on top and sides, plus a few more in the front and back. Too many to count actually. There is also a fan attached to the copper heatsink on the chipset rail. I have temps of the CPU in excess of 70c and higher playing Diablo III turned all the way up, so I need a liquid cooler for sure. I'm going to melt that bastard quickly if I haven't already! FRAPs says 70 FPS in Diablo III during major battles, too with everything turned up and running SLI. I like the board. I know nothing is perfect and this one has had its share of issues, but it works pretty good. I think once I get the temps down it will be a bit more stable.

My temps are better now with the phenom ii quad on 5001 at 3.2 GHz than my Brisbane.

You need to reseat your CPU cooler! Stock cooler I assume? What clocks/volts?

I had trouble with hw monitor and nvtools also.
I highly recommend trying PMT.
Are you using Cool & quiet?
as for Gpu temps one is probably core temp and the other is memory temp.
Have tried reistalling cpu-z ?
Yes the x4 965 will work,but it does require the use of a(very simple) software workaround (either Nvtools or Phenommsrtweaker) to get to full speed.
It is very safe,most of us here have been running them for years.
If you don't want to have to use the workaround then any Phenom II up to x4 945 or any Athlon II will work out the box.(With bios update to 5001)
Good luck
Gyro

thanks for your advise, I ordered Cougar Vortex 120MM Hydro Dynamic Bearing Fan to replace the fan that is blowing on hdd's hope I am not making a bust here. I will definitely try adding 2 more fans on top and bottom, will see how that works. I down clocked back to 3 ghz and my mobo is at 40c........I gained extra five degrees for the expanse of lag mad.gif

Are you using cpu-z 1.61.4,if so try an earlier version.

If you can,get it out of the desk.
Put it on top or on a milk crate in open air.

yeh I think I'll do that instead of drilling holes in the case which will probably do very little help since the entire machine is in confined space inside the table anyway.

Yeah its the current version of cpuz

Illtry that thx.

Don't validations not work with older versions however?

Also, interestingly my ps2 keyboard doesn't want to work in BIOS,

Otherwise I'm not having any trouble so far.

Need to relearn how to overclock now. At 3.4 ATM.
