Recently purchased the M2N-SLI as a bundle from TD which included the 9500 processor and the Corsair 2x2048 PC6400 Ram. Ya.. I got what I paid for

I had all sorts of problems getting stability under Vista 64. Plenty of seemingly random BSODs with STOP101 errors each time. It appeared to happen when the system was idle! I would walk away and come back some time later or in the morning and it would be BSOD'd. This got readily resolved once I specifically set the memory timings to the stock settings of 5-5-5-18-26-2T @ 1.80v. Then low and behold my system started to go into S1 APCI sleep mode properly. Weird heh? Well I disabled that crap in Vista and no problems since...Until I got started with OC'n

Followed AMD OC'n manual residing on overclock.net and only got so far as isolating the motherboard step and could not set my reference clock above 210 without getting post errors prior to OS load.

Any ideas where to go from here? I assume my system info is listed below. I have tried to include as much detail as possible.

Hey- M2N-SLI deluxe owner here.
I was just looking at some phenoms and the compatibility list. Can that board not support the 140W 9950 BE?
My only complaint about my board is that it's not PCIe 2.0 so I'm pretty much stuck with my 8800

I've got an M2N-E SLI with an AMD FX-62 and was wondering if anyone could offer up some overclocking specs I might try for a good stable oc. I tried the AI overclocking but cannot use more than 3% without getting the blue screen of death.

Hey all M2N’ers I’m back from my holiday vacation. So with no further a do, I’d like to welcome our newest members to the club. bbjsw10, v8killaz, ChewyydaGalka, NightHawk360, Slink and Tyler.koyl,

Now onward to your questions. I’ll try to answer them to the best of my ability.

I’m glad to see you got your system runnning good. Have you run any stability tests for any length of time? Have you run a memtest? Sometimes you can get your system to overclock better by adjusting the ram timings. Sounds like you had a problem with your ram timings right out the gate. Any how, you could always try to lower your ht multi or your ram divider to achive a higher fsb. Hope this helps.

I Don’t think that board is designed with the capacitors to handle the higher wattage of the those cpu’s but I could be wrong. Asus Tech or sales reps will be the best people to give you a definitive answer to the wattage capablilities or your board. You could also try to look it up on the Asus web page.

Software overclocking is the easiest way to avoid the learning process of how to really achieve a properly tuned & overclocked computer. LOL, I’m not diss’n on you but I’m just speaking from my own experience. If you have questions in regards to what you need to do with individual settings, then I’m sure our members here would be more then happy to explain what those settings are for and what you can do to optimize those individual settings. Have you read any of the overclocking guidelines? If not that would be a good place to start. There is no easy solution for your own education when it comes to overclocking. You have to do some research and take an interest in what all the bios settings on your particular board do and why or why not you make adjustments to them. I have referenced a couple of guides here hope this helps.


I’m surprised that no one has chimed in to try and answer any of these questions by now.

They are WEAK. Runs rock-solid at intended timings and voltages, but wants to over-clock like I want to get outta bed for school at 7am. 'Nuff said, I guess.

Nice. hope you get that DFI screemin soon. DFI's can be a bit finiky at first but once you get those bios settings all dialed in you'll be rocking it with the purple lol Welcome to the club. You have officially been added to the roster. I was looking at your system specks and I noticed a 4870 in the works. Are you planning on upgrading your 4870 to crossfire in the future? Sounds like your gonna have a nice system eiter way.

I have been kind of hoping that I could use the phenom II x4 940 BE in the m2n32 board but it don't look to promissing ATM. We'll see...

What kind of timings and voltages have you tried with that ram? Do they have heat spreaders on them?
