[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 1107

post #11061 of 12343
like I said, I have the Intel on my main computer, my asus M4N98TD-EVO. It scores a 7.1 with WEI and is my low point but that is due to the nVidia SATA drivers, it scored 7.4 using the microsoft stock drivers.

I just got the M2N32-SLI Deluxe running again and I am using an old Maxtor 320G SATA 2 hdd with it as my Barracuda 1TB just took a dump...again. smile.gif

Well, apparently sitting for 2 years did the trick because I just validated with a new Phenom II X4 965 BE:

Phenom II X4 965 BE




Used the 5002 bios. Followed the guide in the google spread sheet and it went easy, hate having to use the old PS2 keyboard but at least it's only during boot up. Actually impressed with the numbers this is throwing out,not to far off of my 1090T X6 BE OC @ 3.94GHz on an Asus M4N98-TD-EVO with DDR3. I bought thius board back in 2006, never thought it would see it 4 gens of cpus on it and now I'm glad I didn't toss is. coolsmiley02.gif

Hi I think your cpu is misconfigured, we have the same CPU but different motherboard, yours is better, I'll give you some tips for the cpu have optimal performance.

1) Enable the bus in the bios to manual to 200 or 2XX.
2) Enable CPU Vcore offset voltage in the bios to 50mV
3) I really worked very well the MN2 Tweaker with the following parameters


CPU multiplier to 18x
CPU voltage 1.3875
HT bus speed to 211
HT multiplier to 5x
Ram speed 422 (844) MHz
Good thing is to keep trying, why I say this? that not even believe it, manually set vcore offset and bus, cpu makes the fly.

Good Luck.

Thanks for sharing your config settings.

I'm actually running stock speeds right now for a few reasons.

My PSU is an Antec HE 550W from 2006 and it is right on the edge of actually being a viable voltage source, secondly, my other GTX 460 is not in the case. All of my voltages are right at 10% or more from nominal values, my ram is one 2GB set of G.Skill PC2 6400 ; DDR 400 (good) and one 2GB set of Supertalent PC2 5300 (not so good) or DDR 333 and will in no way even clock to DDR 400 speeds. I lost one of my other sticks of matched G.skill ram and forgot to send both in for the RMA and of course the replacement was different enough to not allow dual channel mode. So I am using the matched set of 2GB Supertalent for dual channel memory mode. Also, I only have the stock cooler and am running at 1.33 Vcore to stay cool even though my case does cool very well, the stock cooler quickly loses ground when going much higher in voltage and clock speeds.

I will try the different Vcore offset, I already have the other setting on manual but my offset is at the default 200 mV I believe but the system has been rock solid through testing and gaming so far other that the occasional low voltage alarms due to the PSU only getting 4.67 V on the 5 V side and 11.71 V on the 12V side.

tazman171,be careful using the offset,it will boost vcore from your 1.33v to 1.53v, so before you enable it drop the vcore to 1.15-1.2v range.
The offset is meant for extreme ocing,it allows you add 200mv to the 1.55v+/- bios limit.

Thanks for that, the board is running pretty much defaults and I do know what the offsets do, they say 200mV right now but the are greyed out because I am only manually setting the multiplier and vcore to make this cpu run on this board. I have had this board since 2006 and have done a bit of OCing with it, to put it lightly, during the past 7 years and it has always been a great mb for that. smile.gif

¿How good is to ensure the stability of the OC with Prime95 or lynx or occtpt?
Why do I ask?, Because I can upload my phenom 965BE at 3.8 GHz with 1.38 volts, and play crysis, 3dmark 2013 or 2006 without problems, but when I run prime95 I can not stabilize the last core up to 3.6 GHz with 1.4 volts .

Never passes of 57 ° C with prime95 (3.6 GHz), and playing crysis, never out of 49 ° C at 3.8 ghz.

Am I doing something wrong, is it necessary to be 100% stable in prime95?

This is my system

Phenom 965 BE, + Cooler Master Hyper TX2
4GB DDR2 800mhz ganged Mode (Corsair and ADATA) with passive heatsinks
M2N-E nForce 570
PSU: Cooler master iGreen, 600 Wts

Thank you in advance

I think the key in the results you mention is temperatures. Naturally not every game or application is going to duplicate the wide range of stress & heat that P95 and the likes will. However stress applications do give you a goal to obtain if you desire a 100% stable system in most any use you through at the computer w/o considering ambient air temps. Ideally you would stress test your system w/the warmest ambient air temperatures you expect the pc to be used in and work from there. This has been my method of obtaining my desireable rock solid overclocks " but then again I never push my hardware to much and when I can get 5-15% overclock w/out adding to much voltage or heat I'm happy. smile.gif

Does anyone know which BIOS version is best for overclocking?

I'm currently having trouble breaking the 290MHz CPU clock on my X2 3600+.

Edit - Got it to boot at 300MHz, but that's it; no more. Which is a shame, as I need around 350 to get into the top scores in HWBot. rolleyes.gif

350 is doubtful on the x2, but I've had 2 of 3 of my M2N32's boot at 300 with an AM3 cpu.(x3 720)
What bios are you running now?
2209 or 5002 are your best bets.

Good luck on getting to 350.thumb.gif
