Simfreak47, was this the power supply unit that was severally under powered for your rig?

Hi everyone

New to the site and a little to overclocking.

I order a Phenom II X4 945 without checking to see if it would work with the motherboard and see here that some people got the 955 to work. I like the M2N32 and had it for a few years now and don't want to start a new build yet.

How should I go about setting it up?

KAN, welcome to overclock.net

Before installing the processor it may be wise to go ahead and reset the CMOS. This hopefully will help you avoid any issues you may run into when the machine powers on (POST). I only suggest this because if you had a previous overclock then it may conflict with your new processor.

Other members should pop in with some suggestions as well.

Good luck

Welcome to OCN KAN.

I'd do as thlnk3r suggested then update your bios if your still on Ver: 2101 or older. The BIOS Ver 2205,2207 & 2208 should work just fine for you.

If you do need to flash your bios do it w/your current cpu x2 6000+ & set your bios to defaults before flashing. Then before you flash make sure your system is stable before you flash by running some stability apps

After you flash and before swop your cpu to the x4 945, go directly into your bios if it works right away and get familiar w/where all your voltage settings are located and your hardware monitor screen. Remeber your mobo will overvolt your cpu so you may want to set your cpu voltage to lets say 1.30v for starters. Then swop cpu's and go right into the bios, once you get into the bios immediately adjust your cpu voltage and F10 and save the bios. Then once it post's go back into the bios and go to your hardware monitor screen to see what your cpu core voltage is and what the cpu temperatures are. Then make any other adjustments needed to run smoothly.

Good Luck,

N2G
