Hello,

thank you for your answer. Yes I did update to 5001 with my 6000+ a few days ago. Plus i did reset my CMOS just before i changed the processor. The only hardware thing changed was the processor, nothing else. The BIOS recognizes the CPU and i can configure it. I thought of it being a windows problem as well, so i tried to start by using my Windows 7 DVD but the setup is freezing on "Starting Windows". Starting in Safe Mode makes the PC freeze as well. As earlier said if i start in Normal mode the PC is rebooting automatically. If I change the CPU back to my 6000+ everything works fine.

Greetings

Hello,

I tried that, still the same problem - nothing changed.

I know this may be a little late, but I also have the Vista Premium and I'm running BIOS 5002 with PII x4 965 BE with PMsrTweak and Windows 8 Pro. It's works. Below is a screen shot. I'm OCing the hell out of this 6 yarold MOBO!!! (Water cooling of course) Since this screen shot I've actually increase my HT Speed to 1334 MHz. Running a little hot, but I'm still figuring out the NB SB and CPU voltage page in the BIOS.

Try with one stick of ram in slot 1.(closest to cpu),not work?try the other stick,not work?
Try a windows repair from the cd/dvd.

The bios like you say is fine,it's when the bios hands off to windows is where the trouble lies.

Never to late, the party is always on biggrin.gif

Nice Ref clock thumb.gif

If you still have it,run the squirrel cage fan on the vrm heat sink at the back of the board.
No real performance gain from oc'ing the HT. Or the NB-SB.
Have you bumped the cpu-nb volts any?

Hi 86tueren

I had similar problems as you mentioned. Since there is not that many references to the specific M2N-E in this thread I thought I would write this lengthy post that might be of use to you and others using the M2N-E.

Prior to the upgrade the system was configured with the following:

M2N-E rev 1.02,Bios 5001, 5600 + Windsor using stock fan, 2 sticks 2 GB 800 Mhz, Nvidia GTX 8600, IDE hard disk and DVD and Sata hard disk and DVD, Windows XP 32 bits. This yielded a 3DMark score around 5300.

The system is now configured with the following:

M2N-E rev 1.02, Bios 5001, Phenom II x4 965 BE, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus direct pipe contact fan, 4 sticks 2 GB 800 Mhz (although all 4 sticks are Kingston 800 the timings are different), Asus (Nvidia) GT 650, IDE hard disk and DVD and Sata hard disk and DVD, Windows XP 32 bits and Windows 64 bits in dual boot.This yielded a 3DMark score of 14800.

Reading trough most of the treads here and particularly the posts from Gyro and Lucky Se7en, I ended up with the following procedure.

Installed new GT 650 graphic card in Windows XP.

Upgraded the Bios to 5001.

Installed Windows 8 in dual boot with the first hardware configuration, except GT 650, to minimize problems.

From both Windows, in the control panel, set power options to performance.

Downloaded and installed M2NT Tweaker to use in Windows 8 and Phenom MSR Tweaker to use in Windows XP.

Note that the Tweakers will report errors if you run the applications with a different processor than a K9 chip (such as a Phenom).

Downloaded and installed 3DMark, Mark Reader, Nvidia GPU Tweak, Core Temp and CPUID-CPUZ.

Took readings and pictures from all programs as a baseline.

Cleared CMOS with jumper for 30 seconds.

Removed the CMOS battery.

Disassembled the motherboard.

Removed the Bridge and VRMs heatsink. Either clean the existing grey thermal tape or replace with an higher heat dissipation coefficient thermal pad. Clean the fin heatsink, polished with a four sided finishing nail file the square heatsink and Nvidia 570 chip and applied Articsilver MX-4 thermal compound. These steps are optional of course. Adding a fan to the fins heatsink and one to the bridge heatsink is also recommended but optional.

Polished with a four sided finishing nail file the Cooler Master Fan contact plate and pipes to remove the manufacturing burrs. Polished the Phenom II processor.

Installed Phenom II 965 BE and Cooler Master Fan with Articsilver MX-4 thermal compound instead of the compound provided with the fan. Note that the stock fan provided with the Phenom II will run the processor very hot and also blow hot air on the VRM's heatsink. This will push the motherboard temperature way up and the system might be unstable. Use of at least a direct contact pipe fan is recommended.

Reassembled the motherboard and replaced the CMOS battery with a new one (optional).

Booted the system with an old PS keyboard since the arrow keys of the wireless keyboard didn't work. In Bios, Advanced, Onboard Device Configuration, USB configuration, set USB Legacy Support to Disabled. Save changes and reboot. Now the arrow keys of the USB keyboard should work in Bios.

All the following steps are done in Bios.

Go to the Advanced tab, Jumper Free Configuration, set Ai Tuning to Manual, set CPU Frequency to 200, leave PCIE clock to Auto, set DDR2 voltage to 1.85, leave CPU Voltage to Auto, change CPU Multiplier to 17 X.

Go to the CPU Configuration tab, set AMd Virtualization to Disabled, Leave AMD CPU C1E support to Enabled, set AMD Live! to Disabled, and set AMD Cool'N'Quiet function to Disabled.

Go to the Dram Configuration tab, set the Memory Clock Frequency one step lower than your existing hardware. For example 800 MHz memory sticks should be set at DDR2 667. Set 1T/2T memory timing at 2T. Set Dram Ganged Mode to Disabled. All other memory settings should be left at default especially if your using mixed sets of memory sticks.

Go to the Power tab, Hardware Monitor, set CPU Q Fan Control to Enabled, set CPU Q Fan Profile to Performance, assuming you have a Chassis fan set Chassis Q Fan Control to Enabled and Chassis Q Fan Profile to Optimal. Save new settings and reboot.

Note that if you have mounted the new cpu direct contact pipe fan to blow air over the VRM fin's heatsink before exhausting the hot air trough the chassis fan these settings will keep the noise down as well as provide a good auto cooling compromise. If you intend to overclock later on then of course each Q Fan Control should be Disabled for minimum operating temperatures. As a reference the Bios was reporting idling temperatures of CPU 30 C and Motherboard 46 C prior to modifications made to the Bridge / VRM heatsink mentioned above.

Shut down the system and added 2 sticks of 2 GB 800 MHz memory for a total of 8 GB of Memory. After adding the memory if the system is unstable try to set the DDR2 voltage to 1.90.

Restarted in Windows 8 and using M2NT Tweaker set the Cpu Multiplier to 17, CPU Voltage to 1.3375, HT Multiplier to 5, click Apply.

Open CPUz and verify that core voltage is between 1.200 V and 1.232 V. Core speed should now read around 3415 MHz.

Open core Temp and verify that Vid is 1.3375 V and as a reference Temperature Readings for CPU # 0 is around 37 C.

Note that I use Windows 8 64 bits for gaming mostly since the 8 GB of memory are accessible. So having the system running with only two P States does the trick.

You may use the GPU Tweak software to push the GT 650 video card while gaming or overclocking by using the G option setting at the bottom of the UI. Most games will run very smoothly without any overclocking with a 3DMark around 14800.

Restarted in windows XP, using Phenom MSR Tweaker, select High Performance, in PO Tab set the 4 Core Multi values to 17, set CPU Vid to 1.3375, set NB Vid to 1.3375, click on the service button. In the Service configuration window, select Enable custom Cool & Quiet, Select the high performance tab, set both P-State values to 0 and click apply.

Note that in some cases you will have to reuse the Tweaker software every time you start your computer as for some reason the values are not passed on to the Bios even if you use the apply at start up function of these software. In my case this might be due to the use of Windows 8 and M2NT Tweaker which is designed for Windows 7 or the information is not passed on to the dual boot strap configuration?

Hope this help.

I'm including a screenshot of some of the softwares used in Windows 8.

I actually rescued this MOBO from the recycle bin at work, so I have nothing for it. Were can I get that squirrel cage? I was thinking about a little fan on the chipset. without the fan on the CPU, the board get a bit less airflow. After that post I kept reading the forums and have returned the HT so roughly stock 1068 MHz. I've also been writing a bit of Python code to help me find the most efficient core/multi/mem setups. Maybe if I can get it to work, I'll share it. Right now I'm running 267x15 @ 1.35v. I've played with the NB volts but it didn't seem to help. Had it at 1.25 and 1.30 and 1.35.

I calculated a the 222x24 w/ cpu<-->NB @ 4x DDR1066 should be a great overclock, but I can get it to work above 20x CPU multi, and thoughts...?

Good score on the MB thumb.gif
Higher reference clock/cpu freq is better to get the most out of the boards.
The NB freq is locked at x8 refclock/cpu freq.

The 267x15/NB 2136 your running now would be better than a high multi oc.

Check out Dr. Swiss' validations with this board on the front page.(those where done with extreme cooling(Scandinavia/Winter/Outside) ) biggrin.gif

I got a stable setup at 286 MHz x14 - 4004Mhz (NB 2288 MHz) w/ DDR-667 setting. @ 1.440v. Can't get a ref clock higher than that yet. I ordered a 2-pack of chipset fans (NVIDIA squirrel cage) on Ebay for $17. Once those are on, I'll play with the NB volts a bit more. Is there a max clock speed for these 965's?



Figuring out the men divider was giving me problems, but I think I figured it out. I'm trying to keep the mem running as close to 533 MHz as I can.
Base Clock = 200MHz - Mem Set=DDR667 (333.3MHz)
Ref. Clock=286MHz - Mem Speed = 476.7

286
200/333.3

476.7 MHz
