what should i do would it be the heat holding me back or something more?
Hitoriko, what kind of stability testing did you perform at 3.2Ghz? Are you positive it was stable at that speed? You could have been running the overclock and it may have not been stable the whole time. Try giving it some more voltage...according to the cpuz screen shot it looks a little low. Make sure you adjust your memory divider so that it's not being overclocked (memory) at the same time.

Let us know

Good luck

and which is the memory divider in the bios?

Hitoriko, go into your bios and check in Advanced -> CPU Configuration -> DRAM Configuration. Select the option, "Memory Clock Frequency". You should be provided with the following options, [Auto], [DDR2 400], [DDR2 533], [DDR2 667] and [DDR2 800]. If you're running DDR2-800 memory then make sure you are not exceeding 400Mhz memory frequency. You can check the frequency via the Memory tab in CPU-Z.

Good luck

Hey I posted earlier, well the update is, I have decided to buy a new asus am3 motherboard for the x4 955 processor, instead of bying a cheap nvidia card to fix the problem. My reason for this is, I have plenty of things to worry about haha, I simply dont want another worry that it might go unstable etc. I need this computer for work.

But don't worry fans! I still love this motherboard, it's done me good. I'll be giving it to my bro along with my previous x2 6000+.

Peace.

Hello all - This is my first post to the group, but I wanted to give some information both as a follow up to previous posts on this forum, but also to document some things I've done that I didn't find through other searches.

A big THANK YOU to those on this forum is in order. About three years ago I bought my college son and myself new systems, both based around the M2N32-SLI Deluxe. We've both upgraded a bit over the years, and we've overclocked to some degree.

But an aging 3-year old motherboard and X2 processors left us wanting more. But money was tight, so I started searching success stories on the M2N32-SLI Deluxe with PII X4 processors, and read many of the pages on this forum. It was back about six weeks ago, and I read most of the recent pages then on the PII X4s and "we" decided to give the 955 a try for both of our motherboards. My son also wanted to give an ATI card a try, and I upgraded to a newer NVidia graphics card.

It's been a roller coaster ride with fits and starts for both of us, but in the end we are happy for now with the venerable M2N32-SLI.

First, I'll post my CPU-Z. You can see my validated CPU-Z score at http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=919789

I've tried all sorts of overclocking methods to get to where I have a stable system that's tuned about as fast as I can get it. I choose to increase the FSB fairly high to increase the processor, memory clock, and the HT bus. As you can see I'm running stable at 260MHz with a X14 multiplier. I can get the memory a little faster, but I can't find a stable FSB clock/multiplier combination that produces stable results.

Main tools I've used? Of course System Tools (6.05). Prime95 for RAM and CPU stress testing. Memtest86 for memory only stability testing. And 3DMark06 for graphics intensive benchmarking and stability testing.

Lessons learned and helps for others:

1) Previous posts on the forum have wondered about why the NVidia System tools control panel doesn't have the "CPU Core Multiplier" option. It becomes visible, on both XP and Windows 7 with proper control panel, power settings. I have a dual boots system, running mostly in Window 7 (and I can't recall the settings in XP since it's been a month or so), but in Windows 7, if you select the Control Panel, Power Options, High Performance, and restart the Performance tool you can set the multiplier, but in the default Power Saver or Balanced the option doesn't show up. Note that even on Balanced or Power Saver, running a profile at Windows start up will still work.

2) I've used RAID 0 for a long time. After doing benchmarks on the hard disk and being somewhat disappointed on the rates, I decided to give the SiImage RAID a try. Turns out the SII is slower than the NVidia RAID so I've gone back to that method. But you CAN swap back and forth between the SII RAID and NVidia RAIDs without reformatting hard drives (something I was pleased with, but was unexpected to some degree).

3) I'm very happy with my old COSAIR XMS2 memories. I have the system clocked up to the point where my memory is getting a W7 7.6 score. Pretty fast IMO.

All-in-all, I'm very happy that I didn't have to buy a new MB, new memory, etc. to get a system that's still competitive with current technology without shelling out a lot of cash.

Oh, and light86 (previous post), since my son went to an ATI card he found the same thing as you did. Our solution that he's happy with (and even has a bit of an advantage) is that he's using his ATI card to run his 24" LCD, but we had an old 15" LCD sitting around from years past, and he left in an old 7600GT card in the second PCIe slot, and he attached the 15" monitor to it. Then the performance part of System tools still runs, and he has a monitor in which he can watch temperature and the like as he's playing games. So it has a decent little advantage, again without buying a new MB.

TTFN - and Happy New Year!
