that is the thing. i am not entirely sure what needs to be set to auto or manual or none. The manual states IDE should be left on Auto, though i did not know that. I am using the Second PCIe(Black) slot, but i had it on 16xup16xdown. Then there is 5xHT . I am not sure what that does. i am guessing hyper-transfer bandwidth or frequency maybe. ill give it another go shortly.

Also if anyone recommends not using the same surge suppressor as the one this pc is plugged into , do let me know please.

If you are unsure of settings,reset bios defaults.

thanks, that seemed to work, for the most part. I think i can get windows to work properly now.

Questions regarding Voltages. Should the CPU/Chipset HT Voltage be increased at all? Also what are temps for the MB for ya'll or anyone who sees this..
post #12224 of 12349
Glad that helped.
Unless you are ocing quite high on the reference clock(raises ht also) no need for more volts to HT.
My MB temps are few degrees C above ambient at idle and raises about 10 C under load.

Hey guys. So I got a M2N-E board with a Opteron 3285 running, and today I also received 2x4gb Hynix DDR2 RAM. But as far as I can see, the memories are server memories, and the PC does not boot.

Is there any tweak available for this motherboard to get my RAM working? Thanks

Thanks Gyro. I was not sure about the HT voltage. the athlon 64 did not saturate the 2000MHz im sure, but the newer Ahtlon II may need it just to boot. And my mB temps are 45°C , looking at hardware monitor in BIOS.
Sata

Cant boot part deux

Having trouble recognizing a device to boot from. It may be the BIOS or Sata II controller or something i dont know about, this board is very touchy when attempting to boot from anything. I had to manually set some things , things i cant remember now. Has this sort of thing been an issue for anyone using 5001 or standard BIOS versions?

Have you tried using the jmicron controller.
Either the one above the primary pci-e slot or the one on the back?

Multiplier set to x4 by default/ Auto

the auto settings clocked the bus at about 800MHz . Never seen that before.
there is a small part of the summary from cpu-z listed right below. As you can see the stock frequency gets to 3.0ghz in the end. The HT speed is what gets me , i thought it was not even capable of going over 2000Mhz

Name AMD Athlon II X2 250
Codename Regor
Specification AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 Processor
Package Socket AM3 (938)
CPUID F.6.2
Extended CPUID 10.6
Brand ID 13
Core Stepping DA-C2
Technology 45 nm
TDP Limit 62 Watts
Core Speed 3017.2 MHz
Multiplier x Bus Speed 4.0 x 754.3 MHz
HT Link speed 3771.5 MHz
Stock frequency 3000 MHz

Multi set to x4 is cool & quiet enabled,to run at full speed all the time disable cool & quiet.
Cpu-z is not always accurate when reading ht speed on these older boards,nothing to worry about.
