AMD never bothered releasing anything. Unless I'm misinformed, what you're thinking of was a side project of a few users on another forum to develop a custom BIOS to support Thuban. They ran into a lot of problems and I think got it to boot once but nothing ever came out of it. The topic stopped being updated and I never checked back. It's has been a while though so if anything changed then I'm sure someone would have heard about it by now.

I head about a project awhile back to create a modded BIOS for X6 support on our boards. The last I heard was that the system was able to start but the BIOS only picked it up as a dual core CPU.

And what better processor "currently" compatible with this board?

Which board do you have? The lesser M2N boards have limits on which CPU can put in. Generally the low end M2N's are restricted to 95w

Up to any Deneb based Phenom II works fine on our boards. Zosma (960T) and Thuban won't work. Officially up to the 945. The 955-980 black will work just fine but require a work around by using Phenom MSR Tweaker or Nvidia system tools which is explained on the first page.

Yes, the best option is the Phenom II X4 945
By the way, I0m going to change my current CPU (DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+) for this one (Phenom II X4 945).
Do I have to change anything in the motherboard or in the configuration?

I have the M2N-SLI without deluxe.

thanks a lot

You don't need the workaround for the 945. Update your BIOS with your current chip, do a complete reset of the BIOS, and put in your 945 and you are good to go thumb.gif
