Do you have a screen shot?
WOT, it should be under Control Panel -> Power Options. Here's a link to a screenshot showing the option: http://www.howtogeek.com/geekers/up/...1-23-06-52.png.

Hope that helps

BigJohn44, not sure what the attachment file size limit is on OCN but I'm pretty sure it's less than 84MB. Would it be possible for you to provide a direct link to the application?

I got a Question, is running diff core speeds ok? i mean performance wise? does it work fine or is it better to have all cores at the same clock? if it does not matter then ill keep it this way cause 2 cores are doing .5x multi higher then the third one
Drutort, to be honest I didn't know you had the ability to change the clock speed for each core with this board. I'm a bit curious now on the end results. Hopefully one of the guys here can answer your question with more detail. In my opinion I think it would be best to run all the cores at the same speed.

Good luck

here is a question to you guys, which app shows the proper cpu voltages?

i ask because im trying to do cool n quiet, it does work, but im getting mixxed readings as far as voltages from the amd power monitor to core temp .99.5 to cpu-z

ok amd power does not register the fsb oc, you can o/c your fsb and keep cool n quiet on this board, apparently even change cpu voltage (keep multi on auto it will be your max stock multi mine is 14 (200x14 2.8ghz stock) )... this is my concern

bios settings
manual pcie (100mhz)
manual cpu voltage 1.5v, ram 2.05v
auto cpu multi
fsb 251mhz
ram (800mhz)
100mv offset


both cpu z and core temp tell me the right low power state which is 1ghz not 800mhz like amd power reports... BUT cpu-z reports power in between what is set in bios, and it does not change with stepping




amd power monitor: shows stock voltage 1.15v and stock mhz 800mhz not o/c fsb
(under load 2.8ghz 1.325v)

cpu-z: shows proper mhz 1ghz, but voltage is in the middle? 1.4v bios set to 1.5v + 100mv offset
(under load 3.5ghz 1.376v)

core temp: shows right mhz 1ghz, but shows stock voltages ie at 4x 1.15v
(under load 3.5ghz 1.325v)

asus cool n quite: reports similar to bios voltage 1.558v does not vary with stepping, shows proper mhz that is: lowest 251x4=1ghz
(under load 3.5ghz 1.51v)

i am not sure if the 100mv offset in bios really gives 100mv or something like 50mv?

also i noticed this mobo doesnt have very stable voltages, changes esp under load

so what are my true values!! :swearing: for voltages??? so i can find out my min and max and tweak cool n quite


my last alternative is to control everything through windows... and keep some stock/auto values in bios

Ok, wierdest thing ever this morning. I played with this thing all day yesturday (as you can tell from my posts). Couldn't get jack to work. All I did was turn it on this morning and boom. I get this. And it is validated through CPUZ. FINALLY!!! I can't count how many times I rebooted this sucker and never got jack.

This is a link to the online validation. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=821508

Thanks everyone I know I was kind of a PITA but it was worth it. I can;t figure out why the drivers didn't click in before but it was a nice surprise to wakr up to today.

Now I have to trouble shoot random reboots.

The temps seem OK but when ever I run a benchmark tool it gives a BSOD. At this point I can't pin it down.

Drutort, in my experience most of these applications display varying voltage readings. They usually differ of about 0.01 - 0.03. I typically run Everest and it's slightly different from what I get from CPU-Z.

W.O.T., do you have random reboots while at stock settings? I'd first test with just stock settings. I also recommend running a stability test with either Prime 95 or OCCT. You could simply just have a unstable overclock.

Let us know

Good luck

Hey W.O.T.,

Congratulations!!! In my youth we use to call what happened to you just plain old "FM" but I don't think I can translate the meaning on the forum.

I fully agree with think3r that maybe you increased your performance specs a bit much initially which is causing your BSODs during the stress tests. As think3r suggested, try the stress tests at default settings---I think you will see pretty good results as well as good stability. If you do overclock, you will need some voltage increases at several places (nb, sb & cpu) in order to get stable results at the setting you current are using. You'll have to play with your system because the adjustments are very system specific. Anyway, congratulations again.

I guess I have to confess that I too have gone over to the "dark side" similar to eclipseaudio4, one of the other very active forum members. My new primary mobo is the MSI 790FX-GD70. I plan to pass my M2N32 on to my wife since her present cpu is an old Athlon 3800 and we have proven that the M2N32 is still a viable player with some of the updated cpus. I decided to change mobos after upgrading my cpu cooler to a Thermalright 120 Black. After installing it I found that it covered too much of the NB cooling fins and I started getting NB temps a little higher than wanted. The "true Black" dropped cpu temps down to the mid-high 20's but the NB was another matter altogether. You're using water cooling on your cpu so you shouldn't have the same problem. Anyway, glad to see you finally got it running. Regards.

Yup unstable OC. Ran for a few hours at 3.2 on Prime 95 at 72 degrees and not a hiccup. SO I am very pleased. I get to string out a major upgrade for long while and I know I have a good amount of headroom on the puppy in this board.

I will wait until a good replacement board comes along at an even better price then upgrade to that.

If I can get 4ghz out of it on this board I will be floored. Did I mention I love this MOBO.

CONGRADS! 4ghz would be GREAT! I LOVE THIS MOBO....
