Nalo_b, you'd probably see a nice bandwidth increase with running ddr2 1066 memory versus ddr2 800. In regards to unganged vs ganged mode, there really isn't any "best" choice. I recommend testing both configurations to see what provides this best performance and stability. If one more stable then the other then I'd probably go with that. Here's a interesting thread on Corsair's website that discusses the differences: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=68919.

Good luck

Hi everybody,

I've been reading the thread for a while as former user of M2N32 board. I still have the board, but right now I using a Crosshair I.

So, long story short: Sold the board to a guy with 2 days for testing or money back. Guy complained about high CPU temps and returned the board. Since I had no issues with temps [except with the 2205 bios]. I thought I should check it again.

So:

Setup: M2n32 Sli\\Deluxe, X2 5400 BE, FZ 120, 2100 bios, 2GB A-Data Vitesta, CoolerMaster 500W Silent ProM. , Leadtek 9600 GT-ZL

Assembled:
Bios 2001 temps OK on the high side 40's.

Flashed by the book to 1701 with EZ Flash [the version that came with the board]. Boot up OK, but the starting temp for CPU in the BIOS hardware is around 80 degrees [ which is not real for sure] Celsius and increasing with about 1 deg/second. When it reaches 108 it automatically shuts down.

The time the system is running is not enough to try to flash it to 2001. Checked the manual for way of overriding the auto shutdown at high temps but found none.

I don't know what to try next, except for a chip replacement. Before these I flashed many time back and forth between BIOS versions [1701 and 2001 included] and never had any problems.

Any explanations? Any thoughts?

Pocris, perhaps I'm missing something but is there a reason why you wouldn't want to stay with bios version 2100? I had a look at your motherboard manual and couldn't find anything that was related to "shutting down" due to high temperatures. Have you tried letting the machine cool down and then attempting to flash back to the 2100 bios?

Good luck

I wonder if the heatpipe for your chipsets and other mobo items that have the heatpipes on it have enough TIM and are making a good connection w/your heatpipes. thlnk3r mentioned your voltages. That is for sure a great place to start to make sure that your chipset & cpu voltages are not to high. Do you know what kind of cpu was installed in the mobo while it was out of your hands? It's possible that something may have been fubard if they used a 140w cpu or if they overclocked it to high w/a 125w cpu.

Good Luck,

Nalo_b, as far as I know the bolt through kit should not void your warranty. You'll have to remove the stock backplate and replace it with the one that is supplied by Scythe. The base of the cooler is pretty compact so there shouldn't be any clearance issues.

Good luck

thlnker, the back plate on these mobo's is the stack cool 2 and it is help in place by double sided thermal foam tape. I think I read about another member here at OCN who tried to remove one from a A8N32 SLI Deluxe and said it ruined the mobo. .

Personally I would not try to remove the back plate. I'm sure there is a safe way to do it. If your dead set on using the cooler & you have to remove the backplate then call ASUS and get it from the horses mouth that by doing so you won't be voiding your warranty. Just keep in mind the back plate not only adds a little bit of cooling properties to your mobo in that area but it also ads support for heavy HSF coolers.

Good Luck,
