[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 527

post #5261 of 12343
Hello. Popped in to ask a question regarding my M2N32 SLI Deluxe. I ordered a Phenom 9950 (140 watt version) on eBay, not realizing that only the 125 watt version was officially supported. My question is, can I safely run the 140 watt version on my motherboard, and if so, what kind of cooling is recommended? I've noticed some people here apparently do use the 140 watt version...so I figured it was okay, but I wanted to play it safe first.

......first off: WELCOME to this thread of the Overclock.net forum's ! !

and an answer to your question of concern:

Have you look into the CPU listing's >>> Click 4 HERE 2 C <<< to see IF your cpu is
listed for no problem's of upon this mthrbrd?? and If ya got any more question's, don't
be afraid to return and ask for help arounds here....... { someone will always be
here or thar to give ya a bit-O-help . . . }

[ i did notice for that list does NOT show for the 140w. version..... . . . but, for on
the first page of this thread, there is a list for which shows there are a couple of people
for using this cpu upon this mthrbrd / ya might want to make sure you are running the
latest BIOS for this mthrbrd for the use of your cpu, as well......]

Thanks for the quick response

The confusing thing for me is that while Asus does not officially support the chip for this board, people here are using it, and apparently with no issues either.

I'd like a definite yes the extra 15 watts is no big deal, or no, it's not a good idea. I don't plan on overclocking or anything of the sort. I basically just want to safely run a gaming rig/media center, without worrying about my board kicking the bucket.

If it's a bad idea to run a 140 watt cpu in this board, I have no problem coming up with an alternative use for the chip...I just want to know before I cook something.

Thread Starter 
IMO besides possibly cooking your VRM's the CPU will most likely run very hot in this mobo. I don't advise using it in this mobo and personally would not but if others are using it just fine then maybe the mobo is redundant enough to handle 140+ watts. Just don't be supprised if any thing starts smelling funny in your computer :/

At best if I had to use this chip in thie mobo I would try to undervolt the chip as much as possible while maintaining stability.

....might be your best bet is to PM those, on the front/first page for this
thread in the listing's of, and ask them your question of concern for this...
...otherwise, you might be waiting for some time for feedback for that
question for on here because of the lack of people who ARE using
that particular cpu upon this mthrbrd for here......

Hi,

I came across this forum searching for a way to use a Phenom II 965 CPU in my M2N32-SLI Deluxe mobo. I saw at the first page of this thread that some of you guys have succeeded in doing so. I was wondering, since i couldn't find any clear reference to a 'How-to' if someone could give me a little tutorial.

thanks in advance,

Reagan
