[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 469

post #4681 of 12343
Hey guys,

My first and well overdue post on this forum and I'm sorry to say its to ask for help.

my setup:-

M2N32-sli-deluxe wireless edition (bios 2001)
Phenom 9850BE overclocked to 3.0ghz
4gb x OCZ sli ready PC8500 running at 960mhz 5-5-5-15
geforce 8800gtx 768mb Graphics
compro E900f tv card
windows 7 ultimate 64bit

This was all running perfectly for a long while (a year or so).

So i decided to stick another 8800gtx (same model) in sli which has seemed to work ok. 3d mark scores have gone up and my windows score for graphics has gone from 6.9 to 7.4.

the problem I have is my useable RAM has dropped from 4gb to 3.75gb plus my windows score for memory has dropped from 7.4 to 5.9.

Is it right for the second card to affect my memory in this way?

This is my first attempt at SLi on this or any system so sorry if my question is of stupidity.

Ibbye, I believe this is normal on a SLI/Crossfire enabled rig however I could be wrong (no experience with either tech). Have you tried removing the 8800GTX to see if this helps revert your total usable memory back to 4GB?

Carnavis, the latest official bios for your board is version 2207. Check out the OP for more details. Can you clarify on the overclocking question?

Hitoriko, the northbridge heatsink is providing direct cooling for that component. I probably wouldn't remove it unless you plan on installing an aftermarket cooler

Good luck

ibbye welcome to OCN. I don't know why this is happening in x64 bit OS. I would have figured you would be able to still use all of your system ram. Do you have any memory remapping enabled in the bios " I don't remberber if you have this option in the CMOS for the M2N32 " if so give remapping a shot. You could also try to increase the Swopfile size in the os if it is set to auto and only as big as your system ram. You may want to try to set it to 6GB if it is on auto and only showing as 4Gb swop file size. Those are the only two things I can think of that may have something to do w/this wierd phenomenon.

CARNAVIS Welcome to OCN and Club M2N. I'll add you to the club roster after this post. I need to update the OP as Thlnk3r brings it to my attention it still shows 2207 as the latest bios when in fact there is two newer bios's 2208 & 2209. I'll change that as well so it will say 2209. You can use the EZ Flash tool in your CMOS to find out what bios version your mobo has loaded currently. There is also a bios files tab at the top of the Club's Google AM2+ & AM3 CPU Compatibility List so you can quickly download any bios file you want to try out w/out a lot of research to find it.

You may also use Everest Ultimate 5.30 to find out what bios file you have flashed to your mobo additionally you can use CPU-Z to give you a date of your bios file. Which brings up another point to me. I could find out what dates each bios file is so members would be able to determine the bios on their mobo just by date in CPU-Z from the Mobo tab but Asus is alway tinkering w/the bios files and this date will prolly change a lot and confuse people.

N2Gaming, you know I wasn't sure if 2208 and 2209 were "official"...that's kind of why I mentioned 2207 so I do apologize for that.

Thanks for updating the front page

Well to be honest I did not check to see if either are Official yet but since so many users are using 2209 I figured I would just link it as 2209 w/out the verbage of being Official like w/the 2207 link I had before. No need for appologies man. You actually pointed out something that I have been wanting to change for a while now and just kept forgetting to do it.
