I know i didnt buy the board but what are the odds of Asus replacing this or looking at it at least?
WHAT!!!, it wouldn't hurt to try and see if Asus would accept an RMA for the board. It's worth a shot. I wonder if your buddy did damage something when he installed the 1TB drive

I dunno mate, it just irks me that i can run XP fine but W7 is a loss, im not an OS guru so i cant think of what 7 is doing thats making this thing fall on it's butt. I think i'll try an rma, whats the turnaround like for this these days?

WHAT!!!, is the drive showing up properly in the Device Manager (Windows 7)?

As for the RMA goes, it can take anywhere from 2 weeks to almost a month I believe. Most motherboard rma's are like that. Worse case scenario is probably 30 days.

Good luck

He said the drive showed in xp/w7/Linux fine, my drives all show fine too. Im at a point of pulling out the wifi module as he and now i have literally swapped every piece of hardware. His 1T hd worked just fine in his new rig so we know it's not that. Is there a guide for optimum settings with this board? im just thinking of voltages being too low or high on stuff that might be causing this. My ram is rated at 1.8v and thats what it's at, as is the cpu at 1.4v.

This sounds like unstable overclocking to me; It is not uncommon for an unstable system to behave like this. Lower the CPU speed a bit.

The board/cpu has never been clocked but i might try lowering the cpu speed to see if it becomes stable.

try updating the bios, and at the very worst revert back to XP - its better for gaming anyways and win7 isn't anything special

also what graphics card are you running?

Hi,
I also have managed to pair the M2N32-SLI Deluxe (BIOS 2209beta) with Athlon II X4 620 but I have some issues regarding the CPU temperature: in idle, Everest 5.3 is reporting 47-52 degrees (Celsius). My CPU cooler is Scythe Mine rev.B tunned with a 120mm Cooler Master PWM fan and worked flawlessly with my Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition. I've touched with my hand the cooler pipes and they were slightly warm.

Having this "problem" I haven't tried, yet, to OC my CPU. I'll do some research in figuring why I have those high temps: is it a BIOS reporting issue or ...actually I have a big problem.

If anyone have an idea, feel free to respond.
Thank you, Alex

Sorry to bring back an old question, but did anyone try to unlock the fourth core on a x32 720BE with the M2N32-SLI? Also, as I'm not the best of overclockers, I'm thinking about using the mobo's automated overclocking function - is that a good idea?

I don't think AM2 mobos have that option you need to turn on to unlock cores. And I wouldn't try using the Automated, you will most likely get a bigger overclock doing the clocks manually yourself.
