Hey everyone. I need to double the amount of ram in my system. I am currently running 4x1GB Corsair XMS DDR2 800 in my system. 800 or 1066 is the question? would like to get the 1066 if i can but Is it possible to run 4 banks at 1066 on our boards or is this asking too much?
post #11003 of 12343
AM2 is 1 dimm per channel for 1066,but you can run 4 sticks of 1066 @ 800 and oc it with refclock back to 1066 biggrin.gif

Hi, all.

Due to financial issues, I had to sell my latest computer so I started looking at my closet to see what I could find to set a system up from all the old and spare parts I had. So I found my old M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless... already with the Athlon 64 X2 5200 in it. I cleaned it all, replaced the thermal grease, dumped an old video card and a 1 GB memory and mounted it on an old case with a standard 450W PS... Switched it on and... IT BOOTED UP!!!!

So, my questions: what is the fastest memory I could use on this MB? 1066 x4 cards?
What is the fastest CPU that can be used? According to the documentation I found, it is the Phenom II X4 945. Problem is those are hard to find new. The newer ones (955, 965, 975) are also compatible?

And about a video card, I was planning on getting a GT430. Is it enough or is it too slow (or too fast) for that system?

Thank you all,

Regards,

Mariano

1066 ram will work
Phenom ii x4 955 965 975 will work with a workaround (and some are overclocking these with that board to 4+GHz), you should read the Original post. It addresses this and has step by step instructions
Gt430 is relatively weak. Like an htpc Gpu. If that covers your needs than that's fine.

my temps seem a little high i was wondering if it is hard to take off the motherboard heat pipe and replace the thermal paste and will MX-4 work
post #11007 of 12343
Only as hard as it is to remove MB.
Only the SB/NB use TIM,the VRMS have thermal pads.
Are you using the squirrel cage fan? That will knock off about 5-7c .

You can run up to the 980,but the 955/965 are probably best for that board.You will need bios version 5001 also.
The Thuban cpu's will not work.

Good luck
