So if I have this correct....

The bios will set the processor to 200x4

I raise my reference clock on the 965 and lower the HT Multiplier in NST, Correct?

So 340x10 multiplier to get "stock" overclocking? or what value is everyone using for their 965's. Do I have to mess with voltages at all? if so I might just find the extra cash and get a new mobo, it suddenly seems complicated after looking through thread haha

17 x 200 = 3400 is the stock setting I think,set this in the bios,take your cpu v off auto,set to 1.35v to start( it may take a little lower setting in the bios to get 1.35v depends on how much your mb over volts),set the ram timing and volts, save & exit.
Next go into windows(7 or vista) and set power options to performance,open nv cp click on performance ,select cpu.
At this point you should look like the pic below except the cpu core multi won't be grayed out.Now set each core multi to 17 same as in the bios,hit apply,and you should be at 3400mhz.

The thing is that what ever you set in the bios for fsb and multi you have to make same setting in nv cp.

That should get you started

Hi all. Not gone away. Just still waiting for the bloody CPU to arrive from Amazon

Going to have to re-read all this stuff when it arrives to get back up to speed!

I think you may be trying the wrong version of the BIOS, and if so, thank ASUS that it wouldn't flash!

I'm not sure if that's the problem, but I hope it is that simple. Here is the ASUS page you want: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us

Do you have an older computer from which you could borrow a floppy drive??

Hey Slink thanks for the answer!
I checked again but the file is the correct one sadly enough, still no luck with it.
I'll check around for a floppy drive but none available here I'm afraid.
This is the error I get using the Asus tool (and you can see it does recognize the file as being correct apparently.)

Hi All; Since my M2N32 SLI won't post unless I clear CMOS each time with the Ph 940 installed, does anyone think I would have a problem reflashing the BIOS with 2209? I get "CMOS Checksum Error - Defaults Loaded" when its does post(have good battery) - could have a corrupt 2209 BIOS in there now.... Thanks

have you tried putting the bios on a flash drive and using the EZ-flash in the bios itself to install them?

Gyro has successfully compensated for my inadequacies. Yes, you will have to set voltage manually. I should report back with some minimum functional voltages for this chip at various freq/mult settings (mine is the PhII 955, same exact CPU die, but only tests satisfactorily up to 3.2GHz).

Try reflashing with the 940 in.
