Hello. First post. Found this thread on Google.

Hopefully my sig works. Read quite a few (but not all) pages and have been convinced to go for PII X4 940. As a complete noob on replacing a CPU can someone direct me to a link where I can find step by step instructions to download the correct BIOS, replace the CPU and heatsink (which one should I go for) and then re-boot?

Cheers.

Hi Ballyhoogames,

Welcome to OCN and club M2N

At the moment your system information is not listed in your sig and your CPU-Z validation is not working so I can't take a quick look at it to see what kind of hardware you are using in your M2N series motherboard.

I would suggest Flashing your BIOS before you try to use any new CPU's. It just makes it a little less painful and hassle free.

You can click on the google spread sheet in the first post of this club thread and in the spread sheet you will see a link that says BIOS Files. If you cllck on the BIOS Files link it will open a new page that has most if not all available BIOS files that are being used today.

You only have an image of the link as per the last 3 characters in the link say PNG and png = an image file not a link to the validation web page

Here is a link to my instructions on how to validate.

That link is working.

Now if you can place it in your sig instead of the png link that is there and get your sig info filled in so I can add you to the club roster. Oh btw I would use the x2 6000+ to flash your bios before putting the new X4 940 cpu in your mobo.

I'm not sure what Heat Sink would be the best or fit your chassis. You did not fill in your sig so we can all see your hardware. Get your sig filled in so others can see what kind of power supply, OS, chassis, amount of fans BIOS etc etc. It makes it easier for every one when you ask hardware help questions if you have your sig all filled in w/your hardware.

did you uninstall your duel core optimizer? I'm not sure but you may need to install a different driver for your quad core cpu. win 7 has the quad drivers installed by default.

Also could you provide us a CPU-Z Validation link so we can poke and prod at what you have going on.

Hahaha I guess I owe you one, since I never provided one with my Kuma.

Anyhow, I never installed the AMD Dual Core Optimizer, iirc. Since Vista progressively breaks itself, I have to reinstall Vista anyway. BTW, I'm using Vista Ultimate x64.

Also btw, I just installed Google Chrome, and it is BALLER.
