Anyone know about x64 nVidia Ethernet drivers? ;-) sigh... *GOOGLEZZZZ*

EDIT: Ahem, that was easy: http://www.nvidia.com/content/Driver...us&type=nForce
It is still listed, i think you must have been looking at the si socket am2/am2+/am3 list.

If anyone really can't find it, here's a link to it.

no it starts up just like it should.

no I didn't but was think on trying a big power supply. I do have and old video card in this pc I could try in it. I'll let you now what I find out.

When I went to put a 945 in the m2n32 is started up fine but the one thing I forgot to uninstall the cool and quiet drivers. so windows wouldn't post.

So I just took and put it in the M3A32-MVP, put the 4-1024MB OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 FlexXLC 1150MHz, old ati card I had and 880w power supply. I just tried to power it up now and it wouldn't post anything and the keyboard and mouse wouldn't light up. so I'm going to try my 8500gt in it and see what it does but I think it is some kind of start up problem.

Good luck

The M2N32-sli can handle more than 1200mhz, i don't know how much more, but it can do 1500mhz, as stated by ASUS (somewhere...):



Also, there is a big difference in bandwith, which has led to greater frame rates, at higher HT's:



The top (red band) is cpu@3000mhz Dram@1200mhz HT@1500mhz, the bands below are Dram@1120mhz HT@1060mhz, then the same but Dram@1066, 848, the last two have different timings. Running the faster HT @ a cpu of 3900mhz only resulted in ~20MB/s bandwidth.


Kan, you have tried different voltages with your ram? When i got my OCZ 9200, it wouldn't post, had to play with the voltages, appologies if you have already.

I forgot that. well I have 2-512mb I'm going to try.

Purpleannex, thank you for clarifying. Now we know the motherboard can handle up to 1500Mhz HTT

Interesting...maybe this is just for the 940BE and the M2N exclusively? You actually benefit quite a bit by overclocking the NB Frequency versus the HT Link speed on AM3 boards. Leaving the HT Link speed at stock and overclocking the NB Frequency and running tighter memory timings seems to provide a very nice boost in performance.

Good luck

You are correct, mate. Thx for showing the way. I overlooked the other paths to get there. I must belong to Overlook.net

hi guys!

i finally found what was wrong with my PC and made some instability: it was RAM fault. but the problem was solve by upper a bit the voltage to 2.2.
it's pretty weird since memory sticks was at factory setting. anyway, now i can really try to OC my CPU in good conditions. (after i ll receive my water block ).

ty all for your advices

Thanks for sharing the new bios revision w/us. How do you like it so far and what are the changes that you can see so far vs. ver. 2208?

Thanks for sharing this info. I still have to play w/my M2N32 sli deluxe using the x4 940 but I get lazy real eazy. Heck I still have to move my temp probes for Gyro.
