Not that far away from your 34331



I will possibly wait and see maybe in a few months make my decision. No reason for this board to blow up on phenom II 940 is there?

As this board supports 125Watt??
I really hope it won't blow up on us

Our board does support 125W so we are fine. But we were saying that because we are right at 125W we don't really have any space for overclocking since we could go way beyond that. So at stock speeds we are good and I'm sure if we don't push it really hard for really long periods of time it should be fine. Most of us are happy for that fact that we don't have to buy new boards and we can keep a lot of our equipment. Even with 16x PCI-e slots we see like minimal bottle necks with our GPU and we can still SLI when it does bottleneck.

This board rocks!

Wondering how far you actually pushed it on this board. As can see you currently running it at 3.5 GHZ




Yes indeed

No I'm one behind the newest (2205 was it?). This one changes unknown CPU to Phenom II 940 and fixes my ram issue where i didn't get all 4gb. I haven't had time to test drive the newest bios unfortunately so I don't know too much about that one.

Now might be the time to get your bios 2205 b4 they no longer have it on the ASUS web sight. They got rid of the 2101 bios shortly after the 2205 bios. I'm wondering if they will do the same for the 2205.

3.5 GHz seems to be my limit. The nice thing is that its not that much higher than stock voltage. I think I am at 1.37V. At this point I can't get it higher by pumping the voltage. I can shove 1.45V and 3.6 still isn't stable. I am at the point where cooling is more important than voltage. Remember this chip loves being cold. If my chip is 1.37V and 3.6 GHz with a crappier heat sink it won't even post and if does, windows won't load. But with my current heat sink it will get into windows at 3.6 GHz stress it for 1 min and then it will die. So I still see progress for my chip if I decide to go more hardcore for cooling.

Please POST results of CPU score
I own a Phenom II X3 720. I ran this CPU @ 3200Mhz with 100% load for over a month on a M2N-SLI Deluxe; it was 100% stable. I now use the CPU in my gaming rig (has M2N32-SLI Deluxe mobo), I run it at 3500Mhz, also 100% stable.
Occasionally it won't POST and I have to hit the reset switch and enter/exit the BIOS for it to post (seldom with the M2N-SLI: often with my M2N32-SLI), but I had the same issues when I used other CPUs so it isn't really an issue with the Phenom II.

3DMark06 score (19225 points):

how are you only getting 11091 with a phenom im getting like 11118 on a dual core!
post #2530 of 12343
Hey guys I have a question. The CD that came with the M2N SLI Deluxe.. does anyone have one laying around that they wouldn't mind copying or ISOing for me? I like to have the driver CD's that have some of the "special features" of the mobo...I looked allover the net but couldn't find one.
