NP the mobo has bios and we are talking about bios codes for these boards. I'll try to find the link tomorrow if I remember. I has the problems of the bad memories man. Prolly from all my teen age years... I just went thru my BNBB project thread and the link was not in there. It may be in this club thread or another club thread and in those two cases it could take a very long time to find it. I'll do a quick search at the top of the page and then I'll be done looking for the night.

Edit: So far this is all I can come up with.

Edit #2: I just found the link I was talking about. It only took me about 1/2 hour to figure out how to find it. I looked at teh date of my PM and got to thinking now all I have to do is find the thread ( it happened to be this one ) and find all the posts w/the same dates & bingo Here is the link

Biostar has nForce 520 mobo with support for Athlon and Phenom II, so I think that Asus is just not interested to produce such bios for "old" M2N, because they don't have any economic benefits from that. They have plenty new AM3 boards and they rather see to selling them.

Hey kolos thanks for sharing this w/us. I don't know much about that mobo and it seems as if I can not locate any that are for sale. Is this a OEM mobo or is it a retail sale to general public board. It would make more sense to have official Ph II cpu support if the mobo is a oem for pc manufactures that call for a cheap solution or otherwords biostar or the manufacture may have a lot of these unsold OEM mobo's sitting in a wharehouse that they were not able to sale. So Biostar released a bios to officially support the Ph II cpu's. You see w/most OEM's the bios is locked out so most people would not be able to change the BIOS perameters for tweeking. So as long as the boards are set up to run only at one spd then there is no danger in supporting the cpu's in a locked board.

My guess is that ASUS can not do it because we have a Retail mobo and it is an enthusiast mobo w/total control ( mostly ) of all your BIOS settings and that can lead to a ton of RMA's. Not the kind of thing that is good for business.

The more and more I think about it. It just may be possible that Foxconn has (A) either does not want a lot of RMA's from enabling the NB to CPU multi or (B) they don't have the staff atm to do such updates. They are making some changes atm so who know's, a NB multi may be on the horion but I'm not holding my breath.

OK back to ASUS. Yes we all want official support. They may be working on it for all we know. Seriousely why would they give us the BIOS updates 2205 & 2207 unless they were trying to give us Ph II support. Now before any one calls me on it I know I'm being contradictive to my own words but there could be a fee involved w/AMD just to say the mobo that they no longer manufacture supports Ph II cpu's.

IDK but what ever the case be for ASUS I'm sure it is financial and for them it is prolly a wise one. All that matters to me is that my board works w/a Ph II x4 940 BE FTW

I have just one issue with Phenom II on board and that's cold boot. Every time I starts PC I must immediately reset it and after that it works like a charm. Because of cold boot issue I hope for Phenom II supported bios, but obviously I shan't live to see it.

I have a question if anybody runs AMD OverDrive (AOD) with any of these 2 mobos and which version is recommended? I read somewhere that it is possible to run some older AOD versions.

Kolos, I was under the impression that AOD could only be ran on a board with the SB750 chipset

There is the way to make it runs on our mobos, too.

Kolos, wow thank you for posting up those links. When running the older version are some features not available though? I guess it doesn't matter if you are mainly using it just for overclocking. Those options obviously don't change from revision to revision...

Thanks again

That is some very interesting stuff Kolos. I will have to read it later when My eyes become normal again. I just got back from the eye doctor and my eyes are still dialated so it's kind of hard to read a lot of information. I have to use my mouse w/the vertual magnifying glass. That means I have to move my mouse to move the magnifying glass to center over text. Look at me talking about this like you all care. ha ha Any way I just wanted you all to know why I am not going to read the AOD links just yet.

Edit: OK I just finished reading the AOD links... how cool is that to be able to install version .09 with a saved AODDriver.sys file from version .14 to make it work for vista x64... I'm curiouse if this will work for xp x64 I also need to find out if there is a 64bit version of WPCredit... I still want to use that WPCredit one of these days.

Well try it out and let us know how it works out for you.

Hmm... if you can run AOD then can't you fix this problem once you get into windows?

But if you boot into windows CPU-Z will inform you it's running at 800Mhz with a 4x Multiplier and if you restart from there without powering down and go back into the bios you get 800Mhz showing in the BIOS as well.
I'm curious because I'm now using my M2N-SLI deluxe in my brother's computer and I'd like to drop in an Athlon II or Phenom II x2 or x3 if possible..

Have any of you tryed the fixed 2207 BIOS for this motherboard. Ive tried it it fixes the crashing on loading default settings. It has been very stable over past week, stressed tested as well.
