[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 441

post #4401 of 12343
ok guys, i got a really big problem - I can't find a spare processor that would initially work in my mobo so i could update the BIOS. So what i did a while ago was to go ahead and place my pII x3 720 processor, reset the bios, plug in the power cable, turn on the computer and wish everything will turn out well, but unfortunately it didn't. Well it did turn on- for 3 seconds and died. Well im frustrated but hell, what can i do right? I hope i get to borrow a processor tomorrow, any suggestions on what processors I should borrow that would definitely work with this board, of which its bios was never updated since i bought it?

Hope that helps
well i have the normal m2n sli not deluxe

The only differences I can see is a 200MHz faster core clock w/the addition of another cpu core and 6mb L3 Cache. This in theory should make the cpu quicker but I don't know by how much. The cpu has more head room for higher voltage and higher temperatures. I don't think you would be making any leaps and bounds of improvement by switching to a X3 710 but you may see some slight improvements in your benchmark scores. I think it really boils down to what you are gonna be using the machine for. It is a higher wattage cpu at 95 watts so it may also tend to run hotter then the X2 4600+ depending on what revision cpu you currently have. Here is a link to the CPU comparison from AMD's web sight

If after you put another athlon X2 ( Please note: not Athlon II x2 or Ph II x2 ) in your mobo and it does not post then you have to consider something else may be wrong w/your hardware. maybe it could be your power supply or your HDD or Ram. Have you ever had the mobo running correctly w/any cpu's and if so what happened to the cpu that you had when it was working? Sorry if you have already told us this I just reply to a lot of threads and questions and my memory is not what it use to be.

N2Gaming, post corrected. Sorry I was under the impression he had a M2N32 Deluxe.

EDIT: Disregard that post. I just removed it.

That's quite alright Thlnk3r your just trying to help.

It would be nice of me if I had a list of downloadable Bios's for each mobo linked in the Google Spreadsheet but I don't know how to link Zip or Rar files other wise I would have done it by now so our users would not have to go to ASUS to download bios files.

I think I figured out how to link bios zip files. So now I will be able to link the bios files in the Google spreadsheet for all the mobo's. Even though I could link every single bios file, I will only link the most current and most used bios files needed for todays CPU's as those seem to be the only ones people tend to inquire abouty.

I started already and if you look at the Google spreadsheet on the Opening Page you will find a link for M2N32 SLI Deluxe Bios Files. Let me know what you think of this. Is it a win win or does it really matter much either way ???
