That's strange Eclipse. His CPUZ validation works just fine for me. Maybe you need a cpuz update or your browser experienced a hickup of some sort. IDK what it could be but I was able to look at it see.

I also OCed system at stock voltages to 3225 MHz (FSB 215 MHz, memory 717 MHz) and it posted without problems.
I finally lowered RAM speed to DDR2 667 (remotely using phone and my girlfriend sitting home at the computer) and it helped to solve boot issue. Now the PC boots flawlessly, hooray . Thanks for the tip.

By the way, I've seen some discussions about locked L3 cache on some Athlons II X4. If there would be locked L3 cache on my cpu, is there a way how to unlock it on M2N-SLI Deluxe?
UPDATE: OK, I found the answer ...

you can only try if you have the right motherboard, your board has an nvidia chipset so dont even try it. You will need a board with an SB710 or SB750 in order to unlock.

I had the same problem and solved it by bumping my memory voltage up a notch and kept the speed the same.

In my case, that didn't helped. I went up to 2.2V.

Ben1981, that's correct you need a board that had the "ACC" feature (ie. SB750 or an equivalent Nvidia board with "NCC"). You also were only able to do this with the "Deneb" Athlon II's. The first Athlon II's had this core which had the disabled L3 cache but now all the new Athlon II's are the Propus core which do not have L3 cache at all.

Hope that helps

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 .
yes i have same issue with boot, at first i didnt get it, then i remembered, the interesting thing is pressing F1 does go but, it does not put the right o/c settings that i have like instead of 3.5ghz it will be just 3ghz... i have to go into the bios and exit and then it goes fine

i dont know, about the ram, i like mine at the speed its at now underclocking it just so my boot works from cold i dont know if thats worth it...

i put comp in sleep mode most of the time, and reboot once in a while
