It has gone faster, but I don't like the temps@100% CPU usage...lol...

I do want a 955BE tho ;-) mmm...
GO FOR IT....let us know how she works on the board!! My 940 runs SWEET...!

ok memory question....

when i originally bought my system i got it with
2x corsair pc2-6400 1GB

and just this last december i picked up
2x corsair pc2-6400 2GB

i currently have all 4 sticks installed and running vista 64 showing as all 6 gigs. i've done some looking but can't seem to get a definitive answer. Im not currently overclocking but I've heard that 4 sticks can put a good ammount of stress on the NB due to the voltage settings if you do.

Now my question for you all is...Would I be better off sticking with what I have now or dropping to the 2 2GB sticks and overclocking? Would just like to get the most out of this system as I can, because i figure it'll be a good 2 months before i can pick up a p2 940.

Mjl4878, you've heard correct but it's not the "NB" it's the actual integrated memory controller (IMC) on the processor itself. Populating all four DIMM slots would substantially put more stress on the IMC which would technically limit your overclock. With two sticks of memory there would be less stress. My advise to this humor (but proven fact) is to test every possible configuration. You'll never know until you find out.

Let us know

Good luck

Hey folks.

I think I remember that in this thread out mobo's cpu/core temps were explained but could someone run them by my again?

I am using Speedfan right now and the cpu temp is 62(ish) but the cores read 46C. I have my True/Delta at 90% fan and if I lower it by 10degrees the cpu temp instantly rises to 68C, no lag just bamm slamm. Then if I put more power to the fan it does the same instant increase..

I've done the touch test on the pipes and they are cool. As a test I unplugged my Delta, the pipes didn't get hot to the touch until the core reached over 55C and at this time the True's fins are warm to the touch also.

I am inquiring about this cause I fold to vm/smp on my Phenom and later on in the afternoon it is just getting waaaaay to hot to keep them going. My cpu temp reaches 70C. And it doesn't help that I am in a south facing room with my system setup against the wall/window.

Any info about the m2n32-sli, Speedfan and temperature info would be of benifit.

Take the temperature readings with a grain of salt: Some M2N-SLI/M2N32-SLI motherboards seem to show way too high temperature readings.

G-Byte, have you tested any other temperature monitoring applications such as Coretemp or Everest? The "cpu temp" is usually at the IHS (integrated heat spreader) level. The "core temp" is probably the most important to monitor so just fyi. I'd recommend downloading a few other apps and seeing if there is a temperature difference. In the past I've found Speedfan to be unreliable when it came to temperature monitoring.

Good luck

Ya, that's what I've been watching the past few days...the core temp. And yes, I've used all the apps you suggested and anything else that will do the job. Funny thing is that I like SpeedFan the best for what it does and as you can see to the far right that is how it sits on my desktop, just showing the right edge of the temps. I usually have it there all the time just for checking because that particular spot on my lcd is aways empty, on purpose for folding.

The below screeny shows coretemp, everest, hwmonitor and speedfan. Coretemp has only shown me core0 and nothing else. I have seen some others that have been posted that shows all cores, idkw that is. Everest showing all the cpu temps whereas hwmonitor doesn't show my cpu temp at all, although the cores show up just fine. And looking between all four apps they are as close together that one is not really better than the other for what info I want.

I was sure that the IHS was the cpu temps and the cores use a different sensor so I have been trying to keep it under 50C. I shutdown cpu smp's when it gets higher than that. But with my system right next to the outside wall, and the room's window, and with weather temps reaching 27C yesterday and for the rest of the summer, I've had to stop all folding, gpu and cpu's, for the worst of the day. Which for me is from 2pm to about 8/9pm. Since this is my bedroom and the cleanest, but a bit messy, room in the apartment, it is where I usually am when I am home. And it's been really HOT and stifling even with fans running.

The good news is that I am going to be getting the F out of this place and into my own, hopefully--but moved for sure. Waay to messy and starting to smell like a kennel cause of a un-pottie trained yappy lapdog. I'll then position my desk anywhere else but in the way of the sun or the outside wall. And have a real bedroom for the 1st time in 5 years.

In the meantime for now I'll just plug along at it and make all sorts of plans for my own apartment...thanks for the help though, I had thought that it was just the m2n32 that had a problem and I couldn't remember what I had read about the sensors.

G-Byte, thank you for including a screen shot of all the applications. Good comparison

Judging by the shots those temperatures look about right. Cpu temp is usually a few degrees higher so that is normal. Honestly those temperatures aren't too bad considering what your room ambient temps are like. Have you thought about lapping your 9850 and Thermalright Ultra?

I hope your new place "smells" betters

Good luck

Frak!!! I should hope it will smell better. My dogs are trained the right way...and get attention. These two I am living with should never, every, have kids let alone animals. But I knew coming in what the place would look like. $250 for renting a room was the key and even better cause of the medical I am on. More money now plus being able to get a subsidy for my rent so I'll pay about $325/month even though the which/whatever costs $800.

For the past 5 years or so I've been renting rooms from people I know or not. I've had some great roommates and I still am friends, or family, with two of them. One old lady, 79 yrs old, adopted me and now I got another mom , or one cause my own passed in 2000. And I got another sister with another. So all in all it was "good". Then there are the others!!! whom I will forget about. This guy here was supposed to be a friend and sponsor, AA, but when he was too stupid to look closer for his printer cartidges and accused me of stealing them, that was the end of about 9 years of being friends.

Today it is a bit cooler, 21C, and my cpu temp is 52 whilst the core's are 46C. So I might be good for today, it rained a bit and the wind picked up so that helped alot. Now if these 511 wu's would just go away my gpu's would be ok too. At 100% fan they get shut down at 75C too cause of the heat. Even fans won't help with high temps outside and inside. Two cpu's pushing out 55C and three gpu's doing 75+-C is just too much for my 13x14.

I have been thinking of disassembling my gpu's and mobo and putting better tim on or at least pulling off my True to see how that ic7 I put on it spread out. I should have done that the same day after a few hours of running when I got the Phenom and True. But I am perpetually lazy, or a great procrastinator (you pick). I think I need a complete tear down if I am going to do that and at the same time punch out a few more holes in my 900 case.

I am going to get a window ac unit too and then some ducting or whatever is needed to vent the air outside. But it ain't gonna look pretty no matter what if my system is setup far away from a window. Whatever will be done is better than I got now

And yes, lapping was thought about but then Lazy started whispering in my ear. I "think" that the flatness was good but I can't remember. I'll have to check that out when I redo the tim with either another shot of ic7 or as5. And I am getting a few more fan grills and them round filters so my True won't get so mucked up. I cleaned it already and the whole surface was covered, which was one reason my temps were high but that was only two weeks ago (and cpu temps of 65+) or so, so I hope it doesn't need it again already.
