I'll look around and let you know if I cant find it.

By the way - a correction to a prior statement.

On that screen where I have to hit F1 to continue - it does say

"cmos checksum error - defaults loaded"

what does that mean?

Mack, from what I understand you did flash your bios correct? The above error message usually appears after a bios flash has been done. As stated previously you need to go into your bios and make the necessary changes before continuing (ie. setting the date, time, boot devices, ect ect). After you have done so that error message should not reappear.

A unstable overclock can also cause that message to appear at POST.

Let us know

Good luck

Good luck

I believe that's a triple core AM3...which is cool...but it's not on an M2N32-SLI...

Is there any actual difference between the M2N-SLI and the M2N32-SLI??
Also, as that Deneb triple core AM3@2.8GHz works fine...does this mean the 3.2GHz Phenom II X4 955 will work on the M2N32-SLI? :-)

EDIT: OK I just Googled and found that they are almost identical except:

- M2N32 has 2x 16 lane PCIe (obvious!)
- M2N has nForce 570, M2N32 has the nForce 590

So...why the hell does my board show up as an nForce 570??? Even though I have the M2N32-SLI Deluxe (built in WLAN!)

Could be a number of things and the worse case it could be a corrupt bios flash. I was getting that msg when I flashed to the 2205 bios. You could have a bad bios chip or you could have a bad cmos battery or you could have bad programming written to the bios or or or you could need to flash back to a different bios like 2001 or 2101.

Incidentally I ended up having to send my mobo in for an RMA. They did not tell me what was wrong w/the board I sent in but they sent me a new board to replace the one I sent in.

Good Luck

Hey guys, that 570 590 topic has been brought up before and the 570 on our m2n32 boards is in fact the south bridge. The M2N32 has the 8Phase power design and the additional wifi adaptor.

Regarding the cpu in the above cpuz screen shots. It looks more like a AM2+ cpu to me a Ph II x4 940BE to be more precise.


One other thing to consider. Even if you are able to plop the AM3 cpu into an older board such as the m2n series boards you will be running it significantly slower then it was designed to run. AM3 has a DDR3 ram controller and operates at faster HTT spd's then the M2N series mobo's can clock.

Does that clear things up a little?

Good Luck,

As far as the cpu listed above. After another close look it does appear to be a 3 core cpu so I may be wrong in my previous post. I was going off what the cpuz reading displayed and that was a unknown Deneb 940.
