I did make a rule to load the boot.nsu when windows loads. but CPUZ still shows the cpu's at 800mhz with 4x multipliers, hmmmm.
Iguess when ur rusty ur rusty! i remember back in the days when I was all in SCSI everything, back to SCSI 1998 era! lol

Raise the multiplier in bios to where you want it. Then you can use nvtune to adjust multiplier above stock. BIOS sets the limit.

In BIOS my CPU Vcore is set to 1.3325 or whatever that value is. In the BIOS hardware manager it reads my Vcore at 1.39

In CPU-Z it reads my core voltage at 1.248 V

Is CPU-Z or BIOS Hardware manager correct? Wondering if I need to overvolt in BIOS to get a true 1.33-1.4V

Also, I noticed a new BIOS option in my new 5001 bios, it is to control ganged/unganged memory. At first I left it on AUTO but it always chose UNGANGED. Should I leave it at unganged or put it to ganged? I have Dual Channel capable RAM DDR2 800 as you can see in my stats here: http://i48.tinypic.com/301k214.jpg

*EDIT* I've been meaning to ask; is the feature PCI-E Overdrive option in BIOS on the M2n-SLI Deluxe useless for someone who manually overclocks their graphics card? By default its set to AUTO but I turned it off since I manually OC the GPU. Should I keep it off?

I did make a rule to load the boot.nsu when windows loads. but CPUZ still shows the cpu's at 800mhz with 4x multipliers, hmmmm.

Is this what youre doing? :
1) Load Nvidia Control Panel
2) Click Performance > Device Settings
3) CPU should be selected by default
4) "CPU Core Multiplier" field has a combo box for CPU CORE and CPU MULTIPLIER, set each of the 4 cores to 17x
5) Click "Save to profile" button, name it BOOT or whatever
6) On the left hand window pane, PERFORMANCE > PROFILE POLICIES
7) In the top field "Take this action" tick the "Load this Profile" box
8) in the lower left window field "When the following condition(s) is/are met:" highlight "The system first starts windows"
9) To the right of that window field, click the button labelled "->"
10) To the right of that button click the highlighted blue text "Profile" and select your BOOT profile
11) Click Accept, you'll notice a new entry will be listed in the "Rules" window pane at the bottom

You can apply your profile now or restart windows to ensure it auto-applies. If this doesn't work then make sure BIOS saved that your multiplier is set to 17x

keep us updated if you run into any problems

sorry for the noobish question but the vrm heatsink is the long one that is west of cpu and the chipset is the square that is south east of the cpu right? so Im assuming that if I take it appart I don't touch the thermal tape on vrm but just the chipset?

I'll get back to you on how it feels to the touch wink.gif

thanks for your help. thumb.gif

Yes the locations are correct.
The chipset is open faced(No IHS like a cpu) so be careful.

redface.gif ,I forgot to mention that windows power options must be set to high performance also,that should give you the multi in NVtools.

These boards overvolt slightly on there own.(hence you have volts set at 1.3375 and it reads as and is actually 1.39v
The 1.61 version of cpu-z seems to be giving alot of people bad readings.Try 1.60,you won't be able to validate though.
You want to run in unganged mode,which is default for auto, so set it to auto.
PCI-e OD is ment for older cards and can be disabled.

I dont have the option you listed in step 4)"CPU Core Multiplier" field
Should i uninstall Nvidia and reinstall? Im running WIN 7 Ultimate x64

Here's a screen shot:

Load to windows, open NVCP/ performance/cpu and set multi for each core to x17,save as profile(name it "boot"),open profile policies and set the boot profile to start with windows.
That will get you started.

Gyro,

I have set my cpu volts as you had mentioned to 1.3375, my multiplier is @ x20, I set RAM manually to 2.1 Volts, I didnt set RAM timings they are on auto. I have four sticks of 2GB Corsiar Dominator PC8500 what are the correct setting i need to manipulate in the bios?

Thanks

@Gyro
My CPU-Z version is 1.60 (1.61 kept crashing when trying to ID processor it seems)

The hardware area in BIOS that shows the core voltage has always been quite higher than any programs in windows. I have checked using Everest, CPU-Z, CPU Wizard and a few others which I can't remember the name of. All showed the same low value (example: 1.39 in BIOS Hardware monitor versus 1.285 in windows programs)

Is this normal? Not sure what value I should go by, windows or BIOS

@old98techie
I noticed that your Nvidia console doesn't have the options for the graphics cards like PhysX and 3d options. Do you have a nvidia card or the drivers installed? I believe you need to have a nvidia card to use this particular work around. I am not sure though, someone else will be able to help out on this one
post #10638 of 12343
@old98techie, you may have missed it above,set windows power options to high performance, that will give you the multi in NVtools.

A cmos reset might help fix the volt readings.This will set bios to defaults.
Everest and cpu-z are usually pretty accurate on these boards.
I would trust the bios over software if the reset does not fix the problem.

HOORAY, i have a quad core PC!

So what i did was activate the copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, I dont think that was the fix, lol. Then I went to the OS control panel and under hardware/ power option clicked on high performance. did a quick reboot and waalaa! the NV control panel gave me the options for each core multiplier.



So I have a EVGA 8800GTS card and will more than likely SLI it with another one later down the road. The wife used Illustrator ALOT. but for now this rig will work just fine. Thanks so much for the help on gettin the Phenom II X4 965 BE to work.

on to the next issue, I have two(2) SSD drives. I will only use one of them. the first up is the Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III, the second is the OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III. I cant seem to get transfer rates close to sata II speeds? who has an SSD with sata II speeds, and what did you have to do i can post a screen shot of my results using AS-SSD software. I get these results:
