It has a large cache RAM, so it performs well. Nowhere near what an Areca
card can do (I know someone who gets 1150MB/sec using a 24-port Areca),
but pretty good for a simple single-CPU desktop. I need it because some of
the data conversion paths I use work better by first convering to uncompressed
video and then from there to DivX/MPEG2/MPEG4/etc.

No, I just won it off eBay as a separate item.

Nothing, since most of the time it's all turned off except my main SGI Fuel desktop.

Can be nasty if I'm not careful. All too easy to turn on a big machine
in the garage to test something and then forget about it (this Onyx RE2
rack pulls about 10A @ 240V under load with 24 CPUs):

In the house, if several RAID units are on, it can get pretty warm, though
that's not such a bad thing during the winter months.


The newer Onyx3800 isn't wired up yet, reckon I'll be lucky to be able
to run with any more than 16 CPUs with the graphics brick included:

but the deskside Onyx2 does work fine and isn't too bad for power draw:

Hi guys,

I am not sure if this is correct thread for this but I would like to announce that I just successfully ran Athlon II X4 630 on M2N-SLI Deluxe.

Cpuz info here http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=784994

So far I overclocked FSB only by 20 MHz to 220. When I tried 230 it was unstable.

Anyway, it is fine feeling to run brand new AM3 cpu on such an old mobo.

My mobo fw is the latest one - 1701

Have you gone through the process of evaluating the other max possible link
speeds? (RAM/HT/etc.) Perhaps some adjustments elsewhere, or higher
voltage (if safe), would give you some more headroom. What are the temps? What cooler are you using btw?

Ian.

Good Job ben1981, I'm thinking you like Van Halen by the looks of your avatar.

Oh and do you mean your using bios revision 1701? When you say " My mobo fw is the latest one - 1701 "

Yes you may be able to push the fsb higher if you change your ram spd's or divider. Either way it's very nice of you to post this information here and yes this is the right place to post this great recent news of yours.

Thank you,

Ian.
I will take it from the end:
- my cooler is Scythe NINJA PLUS Rev.B with 12 cm vent running on 800 rpm
- temperatures are around 50 degres Celsius in Idle (boinc running on background) and 65-70 degrees when running orthos + prime95 torture test.
Note: this 65-70 degrees Celsius are measured by PC probe II (by Asus); Core temp shows only 57 degrees. Do you know any reliable tool showing temperatures for single cores or at least showing reliable temperatures?
EDIT: After 30 minutes of stability test in Everest, the highest CPU temperature is 64 degrees Celsius (measured with Everest).

- I did not tweak RAM/HT/etc. I only tried to increase FSB speed direcly in winXP through PC AiBooster (by Asus). When I put 230 there it was running but sound from winamp was crippled and prime95 reported error.

Ben1981, that's great news actually. I think another user in the club was wondering if a 620 was compatible.

Have a look at Everest. This application should report the individual core temperatures.

Good luck

Hi guys,

I found an "issue" with athlon II X4 630 running on M2N-SLI Deluxe.
The thing is that PC doesn't want to boot unless I press and hold "J" key during boot.
If I do not hold this key then only power and hdd leds shine and nothing happnens, no signal to monitor, nothing.
When I pres and hold "J" key the system boots up normally (btw, mobo reports uknown AMD processor). Then (in windows) everything works flawlessly.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this annoying "issue"?
