I don't think his aim is to embarrass you N2G. It's just that when you turn something to performance it sounds like faster(cooler), and the fact that it got slower(hotter) is just ironic.

It's all good I'm over it if he wishes to use it that is fine by me.

Hey folks. Well all of the talk about bios's has had my head spinning for a week or more now. I am glad that I went with the lowest that supports my Phenom and it is working out so far.

Now my problem is that I don't have enough ram. I have 126 of 2048 free right now. With that it is the two vmware appliances and Firefox taking up the most. Now I see that I need 4 gigs, so 2x2 is what I am looking for.

Please give out your recommendations of what would work. I oc a bit so the ram should too. The ballistix that I have are running at 440 with a 1/1 ratio and my oc is 13x220. It seems to be pretty stable at 2860 right now but I need more ram...and one of them 250 gts's looks to be good also. Then I'll take out the 98gt and get the ppd that I am supposed to w/out the mismatched shaders.

Thanks for any/all of your help. I can shop at ncix or at a local store called Memory Express

Well Honestly any DDR2 1066 should work just fine but you want to keep in mind that your timings are going to be king so look for ram w/the lowest timings and stock voltages. These 2 variables will produce the best results when they are both low. OCZ & Corsair come to mind.

Yessir. It was kindof a "mobo fail". Like the funny kind of fail, where you told your mobo to implement some feature, and the feature did the opposite of what it was supposed to do. Like "WTH?! Stupid lame mobo feature...". The humor was never directed at you; in fact I thought that you thought it was kinda funny, as well as unfortunate, and I liked it so much that I wanted to share it.

However, I'll remove your name and modify it, so as to avoid disclosure. Sorry, bro! (Should've asked u first anyway.)

Now, on with the discussion, all. Please pardon my banter.

So now we know the phenom 940 works in the M2N32, can you guys report just how muh this board restrics the chip (if atall) when its set to stock?

You want us to not use it to the fullest. come on man. That would be like owning a 08 Z06 Vette and never exceeding the speed limit.

seriousely I got better scores on 3dmark06 with stock settings then I did w/my x2 5400+ oc'd to 3.3Ghz but that app is cpu intensive so that may not be a good all around real world benchmarking tool.

Maybe I'd better rephrase that.
Can our beloved M2N32 ever get the full capability of this chip. Or will it hold it back in any way?

Also I've just Oc'd my 4200 to hit 4950 which i'm pretty pleased with as I thought this chip was dead a few weeks back.
On full load it hits 68c does that sound a little hot?
I know I can probably shave a few c's off by re-applying the paste as last time I rushed it a bit and put too much of the stuff on.

Now that is a question that we can easily answer with a yes or no.

Our mobo will not allow the Phenom II to really shine becuase we don't have all of the features a mobo needs to do so. Example; there is no NB Frequency nor NB Frequency multiplier on this mobo so you can not properly adjust the ram and mobo bus speeds to run the cpu at full bore and reap all the bennefits.

We are just so happy that we don't have to spend another $140.00 to $240 to get another decent mobo with all the features of this one. Becuase we all know that will be hard to do. PCIe 2.0 is one feature we lack and there are some other key architecturte aspects we lack as well that will always prevent this mobo from every being able to release the Ph II chips capabilities.

Hope this helps,

N2G

Yeah thanks alot N2G
I know this is proberly impossible but if you had the latest and greatest mobo with this chip = 100% utility what do you estimate the M2N32 utilization would be?

Edit: What do you think of those temps N2G? ^^
