Yes, with my old processor (Athlon 64 X2 5200+) the POST was always successful.

BTW, 2 questions for users running any AM3 processor on M2N-SLI(Deluxe):
Q1: Do you get successful POST and I am the only one having this boot "issue"? Or does anyone else suffers from the same issue?

Q2: Is your cpu also reported as unknown AMD processor by motherboard?

UPDATE of "J" key boot issue: I was just told by my girlfriend using our home PC that this morning the PC booted even without holding "J" key during the boot. But there was probably some POST warning/error as she had to press F1 to continue to windows startup.
Then when she wanted to start PC when she returned from work it did not boot again (no signal to monitor, etc.). Now I am totally confused by this news, sometimes boot is almost fine (apart from POST warning/error) and sometimes it simply doesn't boot al all .

Ben1981, have you by any chance measured the voltage on the CMOS battery to make sure it's within specification?

Have you tried to set your ram to the next divider down to say 667 or 677 what ever it is and overclock your ram from there. I think I recal a user mentioning that it would correct the boot issue. I don't recal what mobo it was on though.

Not yet, I will try this when I get home (hopefully Saturday morning).

No, I haven't but if RAM frequency change will not help I can measure voltage on the battery.

1. I have a Sempron 140 running at 3.9Ghz on a M2N-SLI Deluxe, it boots flawlessly every time.

2. Yes


Don't rely too much on automatic configuration of the BIOS settings: instead adjust the most important settings yourself.

Some more info about my experience.

Before X4 940 I had X2 3600+ and same memory - Team Group Xtreem Dark DDR2-800. System run without any issue and I could overclocked it easily from 1,9 GHz to 2,7 GHz. With X4 940 I have cold boot issue, which I can resolve only if I set my memory to 667 MHz in bios.

I also OCed system at stock voltages to 3225 MHz (FSB 215 MHz, memory 717 MHz) and it posted without problems.

After reading following two great threads I am pretty confident that my bios setting isn't very good (almost everything on default) and it will be probably my brand new but poor quality memory making the troubles.

I will play with the bios a bit during the weekend and then post status update.
Until then I will stop flaming this thread.

Very good! I went to add you to the compatibility list and noticed that cpu-z rejected you entry???? I was wondering if you could provide a link to an accepted cpu-z validation please. TY!
