Not that I am aware of.

What is the application stressing the cores when this one is so much higher in temps. I would think either the applicatin is dominantly using that core or you may need to reseat the HSF. IDK

IMO, it would be best to lower the volts on the first POST after you flash and drop the new CPU in the board.

If you could get the control panel loaded w/o the nvidia gfx drivers, then load the system tools, maybe?
Or if you have an nvidia card install everything then uninstall the video drivers, that should still leave you with what you need.
You could try this with your present cpu, just to see if it will work.

Like N2 said try resetting the HS.

My cores all read the same, but they also read 10-15c below my cpu temp.
Which isn't right,so I just go by cpu temp,which never goes above 45c loaded.

Hey all. I set up The mobo that I was trying to sell for the longest time that I got back from ASUS on an RMA. I could not change any bios settings w/out the system hanging on a black screen. I had to just use the defult settings you get after you clear the CMOS settings. So I was getting bumbed out about it. It did after all have the bios ver: 2205. So I just cleared the CMOS one last time and got into ASUS EZ Flash 2 to flash the bios back to 2001. I did the flash and it all went w/out a hitch. The only thing I notice now is it seems to take a few seconds to start the POST Screen. I'm only using bios 2001 because I only have a X2 5400+ BE in the mobo atm. Oh but get a load of this. The Last 5 digits on my Serial Number are 80303. Thlnk3r will know the importance of this. In any case I can now change my CMOS settings again and am happy the flash went over well. I was thinking I was gonna have to RMA the MOBO again. I mean I checked the battery Voltage and it was fine. it was actually reading 2.96v on my DMM. I just kept getting that darn Checksum error each time I cleared the CMOS settings. This was when it had the 2205 bios loaded.

Well all is good now and I have it running again on 2001. I actually sold the mobo that I was using as my Majic Jack Phone and Print Server system "hence the reason I'm using this mobo now. Oh and another thing I am happy about is I was able to swop out all my parts from one mobo to another and I did not have to revalidate my OS.

maybe. I have a new copy of Win7 Ultimate x64 on a thumb drive. It is suppose to be a retail copy so I could try it on all of my computers to see which one works best w/it and the X4 940 but I think I already know the answer to this one. Some times it's all about what dirvers are available for what hardware. I'll give it a shot if it turns out to be a retail copy and let you all know how it goes.

N2Gaming, give that 5400+ a kick in the butt! Start OC'ing

For Phenom II processors anything below 91000 is considered "good" and should net you some decent overclocks. Not sure if the same applies for older AM2 processors...I would think so though.

I'm hoping you are referring to a legit (paid) copy of Windows 7?

Well here is what I could muster out of this CPU/mobo/ram combo for the evening. I'm only showing all my ram tabs to showcase my OCZ ram spd's of DDR2-1066 when the ram is only DDR2-800 speck. I have had my cpu much faster like 3.5MHz but I am shooting for my max FSB atm on this mobo to make sure the mobo is good. I will shoot for CPU next.

I sure hope it's a legal copy. I purchased it from burito4 here on OCN.

N2Gaming, nice memory overclock. The memory read results are awesome! Boy these M2N32-SLI boards are very underrated

I'm guessing you meant to say under rated no? They actually are rated very very highly. In fact they get a 4x winner of customer choice award at newegg Here's the link. Now you now.
