Hey nalo_b, thanks for the backplate info.

I would say your fine with those temps.
That's down 10-15c at idle from where you started right?
Nothing wrong with that
Load temp is more important than idle temp though and 55c loaded is pretty darn good too I would say, for summer time in Hawaii(lucky sob)
Good job!+1

But someone with a 940 might want to chime in on those temps.

Nalo_b, room ambient temperatures also make huge difference. Those users that had low 30's idle may have had a much lower room ambient temperature so that is something else to definitely think about. As Gyro said 55C full load is excellent especially for a quad core!

Good work

Those temps are AOK! I have the 940 and idle I average about 44, load it hits about 58-60. So your temps are pretty SWEET!

A push/pull fan setup might get you a few more degrees too.

So planning ahead I'm going to switch out my heatsink/fan setup when i pick up my 940, I've heard rumors that the AMDs are a little tricky trying to find one that pushes out the back. So for this chip/mobo setup what would you guys recomend for optimal cooling?

edit: was thinking of a push/pull setup too if this helps and hoping to overclock

Actually we m2n32-sli owners are in better shape than other amd boards because our cpu mount is east/west not north/south like most.
So quite a few coolers will fit naturally blowing out the back.

Thanks for the info guys. Yeah right now ambient temps are high 80's to mid low 90's f. And no wind so humidity is crazy. Also is that good temps for a stock 940be? When I had it at 3.4 I was getting 60c but cancelled orthos for fear of going higher on temps. I increased the voltage to 1.3 to get 3.4.

Gyro don't know if I'm lucky... I'm a glazier and setting 400lb glass in this heat sucks. And I will try a push pull setup. Anyone know where to get the fan mounting brackets from? Been lookin on newegg but never seen it.

Thanks again guys!

I'm thinking of purchasing an AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition for my M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard. Only question I have is, is the cpu compatible with the board? I've read online that the the CPU works fine with the motherboard and to be on the safe side, I should update the BIOS to 2205 which I have done recently.

So I just want to know once and for all, can I get the X2 7750 to work on the M2N32-SLI Deluxe without any problems???

Nalo_b, I think you're doing pretty good considering how high the ambient temperatures are in your area. Is it that warm in your room or was that only outside? A full load temp of 60C isn't too bad but wouldn't recommend going any higher then that. I usually make 65C the cut off. A lot of users prefer to stay under 55C which is completely fine and safe to do bad well.

Preeat, according to this Asus thread it does look like the X2 7750 is compatible. Make sure you have bios 2205 installed (which you do).

Good luck

Thanks. I just wish there was a bit more evidence of the 7750 working on the M2N32-SLI board.
