Thank you !
Speaking of the latest BIOS, the one they have on ASUS site is 1304, would that be the latest? I saw other people here talking about a 2.... series BIOS, or maybe it was for another board? The one I have is 1202.

With feeling of great joy I am joining this club and hope to be a useful part of it.
Best regards!
Welcome to the club!

I'm going to be playing around with a 955 BE & I hope to get some top 5 placements in some hwbot submissions.

Comments appreciated
NB and heat pipes?
The NB voltage control doesn't seem to work properly on the M2N32-SLI Deluxe boards.
As for chipset voltage, by raising it I have been able to push the HT reference frequency a little higher, but gains have always been very small.
Good luck with your overclocking. Please post your results here!

The 1066 option is only available on the newest BIOSes and when you use a K10/K10.5 CPU

Hi kranshteun welcome to OCN.

I would be more then happy to add you to the club roster once you comply. Resistance is futile. Reread the opening 1st post of this club thread for instructions. It's kind of hard to know what mobo you have when your sig does not show one.

The latest BIOS is shown in my sig rig. (Click on it's name, "Sentry" in my signature.) As instructed by N2Gaming, you should add your own sig rig but clicking on "User CP" on any page here on OCN, and clicking "add system" on the left.

Hey! Slink

LOL u got the Coolermaster Centurion 5 as well, I bought mine around 2 years ago, have been regretting it since

The lack of airflow is unbeliveable, the front fan barely helps.

It's also very cramped aint it, I might get a Antec 902

Heya. I don't think it's that cramped! The case airflow is not bad if you position your fans properly (and if your fans actually work well). Also remember: a well organized case has better airflow. It may be beneficial to place an extra fan high on the front where the drive bays are, if you don't have any drives there. It may also be beneficial to block off the upper front mesh to avoid airflow thru that area, allowing air only to enter the lower front.

I replaced the craptastic fans that came with the case. Turbine-bladed fans > standard-bladed fans. Bigger fan = quieter operation & greater airflow. It's advisable to get a fan control panel for the front of the case. Oh, and don't neglect to use any optional fans that came with your mobo. Good luck.

EDIT: I'm considering putting an additional ~80mm fan intake on the bottom rear of the case. Heat goes up, so I'd like to force it that way. I think I might block of the drive bay area too, so air cannot go out that way.

heya guys i got the m2n32-sli deluxe wireless edition. i might be wrong but wasnt there a V1 and V2 of these boards? i could be remembering somethign completely separate

anyway my question is i have enough money for a new cpu and i was reading here that you unofficialy got the 955BE 125W phenom II working. i would love to go AM3 so that in the future i can upgrade ram and motherboard and keep the cpu.

i read there were some issues i just wanted to check and see if there was any issue with motherboard versions. thanks for your time hopefully i can get the 955BE

thanks.

Well, that is the first time I see that the Chipset shows as 570 SLI, I thought it was 590 all this time. I hope it is just a glitch. Never used this CPU-z validate tool but was pretty sure that this mobo has 590, o well.

Welcome to OCN TheMainJam. I don't think it makes any difference one version to the next. The only difference I can think of would be that the older versions came w/a removeable bios chip and the newer ones have it soldered to the mobo to cut down on cost and create more RMA's from bad bios flashes.

Good Job and thank you kranshteun. I'll get you on the club roster right away.

Regarding your 590/570 issues. These mobo's have both of NVidia's 590 & 570 chipsets onboard. This is how the mobo was/is capable of PCIe x16x x16 SLI mode.

If you look at this quote directly from your CPU-Z screenie you will see that the 570 is properly named SB for the South Bridge. While the NB North Bridge is named SPP190 (C51XE) rev A2

Quote:
MB Brand : Asus
MB Model : M2N32-SLI PREMIUM
NB : NVIDIA SPP190 (C51XE) rev A2
SB : NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI rev A2
So you do have a 590 NB it's just named differently in the CPU-Z screen.

I hope this helps guys.
