Would you recommend i lower my overclock or is 182w going to be ok?

Thanks
The lower the voltage the better.
The wattage will not change due to HTT(FSB) or Multi
Just make sure the VRM's dont get too hot. I would suggest running a stability test then use a IR thermometer on the HS over them to see how hot it is. If you dont have one touch it briefly If it feels really hot i would think about lowering it. The biggest killer of comp tech is heat keep that in mind.

Dale-C, as far as I know the most popular bios is the 2205. Hopefully N2Gaming or another member can pop in and suggest a version.

XDRM, sounds like to me the cooler is not mounting correctly. After you install the cooler take a look at it and make sure there aren't any strange gaps or anything like that. The bios typically loads a processor between 60 - 80% (afaik) so the temps will be a little high but 86C is a sure sign of a bad mount/contact with the cooler and processor. Make sure also the fan is plugged in.

What kind of thermal compound are you using and how did you apply it?

Good luck

I have 2001 on one of my boards running one of my x2 5400+BE cpu's and it does the job. I guess it all depends on what cpu you are using. 2101 was a decent bios but you have to dig really hard to find it because it was removed from the download page. After 2101 came 2205 & 2207. ASUS released 2205 as a beta and then made it an official bios then they released 2207 as a beta and made it official then removed the bios. I have not looked lately to see if they put the 2207 back up. For the most part you are best leavling your bios the way it is unless you are trying to get a feature that your bios does not have or support like DDR1066 or Ganged & ungangged. I only say this because flashing your bios is risky business & you always run the risk of rendering your mobo useless if your bios flash Failz

P.S. I think I was able to get my x2 5400+ to it's highest overclock on one of my mobo's that had bios ver 2101 before I flashed it to 2205 for my Ph II X4 940 BE. I had problems w/the flash so I reflashed back to 2101 and then back to 2205 before I could get it to work right. Incidentally thiat mobo had to go back to ASUS on a RMA for Unkonwn issues. They did not tell me what was wrong w/the mobo they just sent me a what appears to be another new replacement which is still sitting in the for sale section.

Hey N2Gaming.
I have attached the 2101 BIOS to this post just in case someone wants it.

OT: I just figured I would pop in and let you know that the Crosshair II does have the CPU->NB multiplier. Proof attached

Thank you SBR. I linked it on the Opening Post of this club thread under the ASUS section thanking you for the link

I'm glad to see that the Nvidia Chipset 780a is capable of adjustable NB to CPU multi's.

XDRM, good question I have no idea if the Intel cooler will fit. When you removed the amd cooler did the thermal compound spread look right? How did you determine the cooler did not make good contact?

In regards to your Ph II question, I don't know any reason why the 250 and 550BE wouldn't work. They are essentially the same processor as the 920, 940 ect. I think one user on here was able to get a 550BE to successfully POST but I can't confirm that. Can anyone else confirm for XDRM?

Good luck
