uweFR,

IMO you or any one else w/this mobo will ever obtain FSB of 360/380 most likly you will be able to achieve 280-300FSB but that is quite enough to obtain HT link 1800-200. Even @ 220x HT link of 8x you would be at 1760. The NB on these CPU's should default to 9x no matter what your HT Multi is set at. So is you run your FSB at 220x9 you would have in theory a NB Frequency of 1980. now on the other hand if you can run your FSB @ 260x9 you would in theory have your NB running at 2340MHz FTW.

I can't tell you that your ram is the problem but I suspect something along those lines.

Edit: I'm running low on my MX-2 TIM and I'm in the process of getting ready to possibly move if the owner sells and I am not the buyer so you can understand my not wanting to pull my x4 940 out of my sig rig to walk yo through the process.

Great to have you here, friend.

NB multi here is fix 8x. Trust me. At 225 i see NB of 1800.

I took my NB cooler and a chassis fan from the main board regulated supply and wired it to the power supply. Also I disconnected my extensive flight controllers from the USB.

The board seems much more reliable now. Could have think about the boards power regarding the new CPU much earlier.

I target now FSB 250x5HT or maybe x4HT.

Only 3 questions: What voltage regarding the NB should I raise when i come to dead end? As far I understood for a AM2 board the vcore is anyway identical to the CPU to NB voltage. Is there another voltage that additionally stabilizes the NB?

Second: Shall I reduce from 16-16 to 8-8 width for high FSB?

Third: Can I leave all NB to SB settings Auto?

Thanks!!!

Number #1 I'm not sure atm.

#2 = No

#3 = yes but IMO you should set NB to SB to 200MHz

uweFR, when I start noticing instability during testing with the HT Clock I usually will bump the voltage in small increments of 0.025. That in my experience seems to work best.

Good luck

I do +0.075 on both CPU-NB and NB to SB chipsets. And I Can get 1250HT stable. 250x5.

Dale-C, I might be mistaken but I don't think the M2N boards have a cpu-nb voltage control. That unfortunately is the only disadvantage I see with this board.

uweFR,

You can look at a couple of CPU-Z validations found in the Google CPU Compatabilty list to get an idea of what is possible on your Mobo .

Dr Swizz has some nice OC's w/this mobo as you can see from the link. You may be able to get your NB running faster w/the right RAM timings and voltage. I think you may be onto something if there is no NB voltage adjustment on the CPU side and if this is the case then that could explain why so many report very high CPU temps but I remain optamistic to that not being the case.

Hmm I recall hey do, oh well Ill chuck in my M2N32 next week when I get my RAM, and see what voltages there are. My current mobo the M57SLI is only good for Cas3 latencies, but 1 of my sticks kinda doesn't work anymore (whoops) and they don't make OCZ System Elite anymore So 3GB of Corsair Value RAM should do! Oh and my M57SLI has Voltages for CPU-NB and NB-SB.
