BTW: what is a newer alternative to the M2N32 board (i wanna build another machine with the left overs i have - 2x xfx7900gt's, 4200+ chip, 160hdd & 40hdd) because i can't find a M2n32 SLi anywhere (there an old board but even ebay is pricey!)

what kind of money are you looking to spend? I have a new mobo from a RMA. I have 3 of these mobo's but pm me if you interested so we don't get introuble w/off topic for sale verbage... Oh also another thing before you get a warning or infracted. You really should post once and then edit your post if no one has replied yet. I use to be pretty bad at double posting a lot until a member brought it to my attention so I guess I'm just passing on the favor.

Edit: see what I mean. I just double posted Sorry guys.

yeah sorry in advance i didn't mean to double post it wont happen again sorry

in other news

if im using 1066mhz ram wont it already be underclocked to suit the board? does that mean i have abit of headroom in the ram? because i was in my BIOS settings and there was an option to select 1066mhz for the DDR2 ram and as far as i know the board only supports 800mhz - now i tried running it at 1066mhz and my comp wont load :S i changed back and its fine - in z-tune it shows my ram as "PC2-6400" but the partnumber under it says "cm2x1024-8500c5d" so does that mean that this ram will work fine but it will be underclocked, would i be correct?

Another thing, i changed my ram, i swaped the slots (ram in slot one went into slot 2 and vice versa) and i ran 3dmark again and i got a better score!11118 is my new best haha

My Comp

EDIT:

i just saw this LINK i should be able to beat that yes?

EDIT:

For the noobs (like me) heres exactly how to update your bios
you can add that to the front page i think it could solve some probelsm for people

hitoriko, give this thread a good read http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.htmlit will explain all the basics.
It has set alot of people on the right path to get the most out of their hardware.

And remember to keep an eye on the temps.

As far as drivers ,go with the latest,186.18 vid and 15.25 nforce chipset,both
can be found on the nvidia down load page.I'd link to them but I'm not sure what vista you have 32 or 64. But just be sure you get the nforce 590 sli amd set.

good luck

hitoriko, your ram should be able to run at DDR1066. It may all depend on how you are trying to use it. If you are trying to run it w/1T then I would assume that is the problem. You could always use it at DDR800 and overlcock you FSB and cpu until you get close to DDR1066... This is a common thing w/ram and overlcocking. Just being able to buy faster ram to run it at slower spd's so that you can then overclock w/plenty of headway for faster cpu and overall system spd's.

as we speak im running a orthos on my system...3150mhz (increase pf 350mhz ) not bad for a beginnner i think

ORTHOS - blend
15min mark - Passed
30min mark - Passed

CoreTemp 0.99.5
Lowest CPU Temp - 24 degrees celius
Hightest CPU Temp - 39 degrees celius
ORTHOS Temp - 37 degrees celius
3DMark06 - CPU Test Fail - Not stable

What is your cpu voltage at?
Can you post another cpu-z validation for us please.
Your cpu temp is looking good
So that should put your ram at 900mhz(450x2)right.

Gyro

edit;in orthos are using the blend test or cpu test?
edit 2; cpu volts?

That may be a little tough. It all depends on your luck of the draw in regards to your cpu stepping, how cool you can keep your cpu and how far you are willing to increase your cpu voltage. Warning on the cpu voltage, you could fry that little guy if you get it to hot w/to much voltage.
