Just looking to see if anyone has had this issue before..

Here is the link to down grade your BIOS..
http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?...Language=en-us



What about the wattage that the CPU is rated....95watt or 125 watts..Does it make a difference? What PHII X4 would you suggest...bang for buck! If I am not OC'ing. I do web design so mostly PS, Flash, DW 4 LCD and multi apps opened at once...but I do game also..just never ventured into OC'ing

Also any idea about RAID working again...

Hmm, well it sounds like a knackered bios to me. That said, I had a similar problem with mine a while back after messing with the bios. Weird thing is that after I'd left it powered off for about 2hrs (psu switched off, no green light) it seemed to have recovered. Don't know why.

The TDP 125w processors just need a slightly better cooling solution than the 95w ones. TDP is just a measure of the rate that heat energy must be dissipated in order that the cpu does not self-destruct. So in theory it should be easier to cool a TDP 95w cpu than a 125w one. A high end air cooler should be able to handle even a TDP 125w cpu though.

Given those multi-tasking requirements plus the casual gaming, you'd probably be ok with a PhII x3 710 coupled with a half-decent graphics card and 4GB DDR2 800 RAM imo.

Well my temps reach's 60c at load. It is a little to warm. I may jump on a new Heatsink/fan. I have my volts at 1.4, to hit 3.6. Been running at this speed for over a week, 24/7. Played games, compiled some programs, watched movies and all was stable! I may drop back to default volt and I can hit 3.5 with that stable. That should help a tad...

You definitely want to keep the 940BEs below 60C, the lower the temp the more stable they become and the more overclocking headroom you have.

I would ditch the orb and grab a rifle cooler and two 120mm fans -- the Xigmatek 1283 and Scythe Mugen 2 are great options which are also cheap options.

Dropped my cpu volt to auto, 1.37 so CPUID reports. Took it down to 3.5. Temps 44 idle, 57 load. Dropped it a couple degrees. Still a tad warm, but better.

Gonna lap that heat sink?

My CPU either reads wrong, or volts itself a little higher than what I set it too. Either way, I'm cautious of temperature.

I have not had any BSODs but I did find an issue with my RAM stability. Prime95 and memtest both detected errors after I dropped in the 720BE. I eventually fixed it by setting the DDR2 voltage to 2.115v. Thing is I ran my RAM voltage on "Auto" without any problems for almost 2 years with an Athlon X2 6000+. Not 100% sure but I put it down to the PhII memory controllers being a bit different but it's all fine now and my system in rock solid once again.
HTH.
With almost all DDR2 1066, a voltage of 2.1v is required... auto doesnt work for it from my experiences. Mainly because these boards i dont think were really built for 1066 ram, they based it on 800, even though we have the option there, i dont think they ever really finished the native (as far as not having to set anything) 1066 support. I have run into many issues with 1066 ram on my dual core, i think since the phenom II knows that ram it might automatically clock it that high, but if the board is on auto for the ram voltage i think it volts it at 1.8 like ddr2 800. Hope this helps.

I think the M2N32 overvolts the Vcore a little. I have read a post by N2G somewhere in this thread where he states as much, but I think his board overvolts by more than mine. My mobo overvolts by approx 0.05V. All programs for voltage reading (everest, CPU-Z, probe2, rightmark, OCCT) come up with the same reading and its always 0.05 higher than the voltage I set in the BIOS. (this 0.05V may not seem very much, but it's 4 clicks in the BIOS!!!)

Also the bios I use (I think its 2001) volts my Athlon X2 6000 (3.1GHz) to 1.42V when I set the Vcore to auto. This is a bit tricky since the default OC of 10% gets the best results. But this results in too high temperatures. So I use rightmark to get the voltage back to where I want it. Which is like somewhere between 1.30 and 1.35V.

I use the scythe mugen but I think I may need another fan to cool the heatsink.

Some RAM is sold with the statement that it requires a higher voltage. Basically, that may sometimes be a ripoff because you can do the same with similar cheaper RAM. However, it's not always true.

Whatev the case, I plan on using the DDR2_1150 RAM at DDR2_800 speed with timings of 3-3-3-8 or as close as I can get.
Here is the RAM I just bought.
^WICKED GOOD DEAL ON FAST DDR2. GOOD 'TIL 3/16/09.^
(Make sure you save the PDF file for the rebate as well. Must buy by or before the 16th.) I'll let y'all know how our board does with this RAM.

No problemo. By the way I found the link from N2Gaming in post 909 of this here forum:
