I'm not entirly sure why your only able to use whole multipliers. maybe you could flash your bios from 1801 to a more current BIOS file. I would try the next one up like 1901 or 2001 to see if it adds any half multipliers for you. Do you have a 125w or an 89w and if 89w do you have the 3GHz or the 3.1GHz chip.

As far as needing 1.6V to get to the 3.4GHz mark. To be honest those speeds are pretty average for the Brizbane CPU's. I can get up to 3.5ish but that's on my X2 5400+ BE and it's no where near stable and it's w/excessive voltages as well

Have you done the process of elimination to find the fastest speeds of your primary componants i.e. MOBO, RAM & CPU individually to find out where each of those top out??? If not I would start w/that to find out what each one peeks out at so you know if in fact it's a CPU or other componants limitation before you fry a good CPU by pushing to much of possibly un-needed volts through the poor little guy.

so now im at 3.1Ghz = 225*14, 900Mhz HTT i'll try to go to 235*14 = 3.29Ghz that should then have the CPU round up in CPU-z to a nice 3300 figure and the ram at 960Mhz

i'll keep at it
Slowly but surely your reach a nice oc if you keep plugging away at it ever so patiently.

Good Luck Guys,

It is because the default multiplier is even for your CPU (15 * 200 = 3000).
If you had a CPU with that had an uneven multiplier for the stock frequency you would have had access to all uneven mutipliers as well as even multipliers.
It is a rather silly limitation and I believe AMD removed it on later models (Does anybody know CPU models that has this limitation?).

Hello friends! Sorry for the long silence, but I guess you guys have been busy with other members:-) Still shopping for a new CPU. Had some problems recently, PC would not post. Do not know why. Tried reseting, troubleshooted video card, hard drive - to no avail. Finally, after I switched the SATA cables for hard and optical drives, just plugged them in to different ports, everything went back to normal. Still a mystery to me but will be flashing a BIOS to 1304, which is the latest on ASUS site. Got myself a Sound Card too, on board is good but independent card is still better.
Best regards to all M2N32 owners!

All,
I see where the Phenom II x4 955 chip can be added, but what about the Phenom II x4 965? I'm currently looking at upgrading my mobo M2N32 SLI and chip (AMD Anthlon 64 x2 Dual Core 6000+ 3.01 Ghz). I was looking at Intel i&, but they are pricey. I was also looking at a Asus or Gigabyte board for the AMD side and adding the Phenom II x4 965.

I could pay for either one, but do I need to as gaming is my biggest thing?

I have had great service from my current 590, would upgrading to the Phenom II x4 965 chip GREATLY improve my performance with my current board?

I would apprecaite any guidance. Thanks,

Here are some of my specs.

8GB Crucial Ballastic RAM
BFG GTS 295 video card
2 150 GB HD RAID 0
1 1TB SATA HD

Welcome to OCN caveman. Any quad core cpu will improve your gaming if the games utilize all 4 cores and the cpu spd is at or faster than your present x2 6000+ cpu. I would think you should at least give it a shot and get a Ph II X4 965 C3 125w CPU to put in your present M2N32. If you don't notice a big difference then you could always get a better motherboard to run the new cpu in. In all honesty you won't be able to maximise any AM3 CPU performance in the M2N32 but you can come pretty close and I truly think it would give you some time on the newer cpu and also give the motherboard manufactures more time to come up w/newer and better motherboard designs.

Thanks for the welcome and for the info! I'll definitely give the CPU a try first as the Mobo has done me well. Now another person (BigJon44) I think stated he had to uninstall the 2-core power mgmt driver, but is it mainly just turning it off, disabling it in the BIOS, or working it in Device Manager?

I'm mainly seeing if doing this will give me more in Bad Company 2..

Thanks for the help!

I run BC2 in my sig rig w/out any problems and it's only running a quad at 3546MHz. The Destroyer is a nice alternative for an upgrade if you don't need a AM3 mobo and you like the idea of having 4x PCIe x16 slots for Tri SLI w/optional PhysX card.

I think the M2N32 is capable of hitting higher FSB speed than my Destroyer but lacks the ability to hit higher HT and NB speeds.

LOL like any one of us is going to dump that much money into GPU's any how. In any case the choice for that option is there for any one who wants or needs it.

Also FYI MSI has a nice SLI board w/the newer 980a SLI chipset that supports native AM3 cpu and ram additionally MSI also has one of is not the best Xfire AM3 mobo as well.

Here is a CPU-Z link of one of the Foxconn Destroyer club members w/an X4 955 C2 at 4.5GHz and DDR2-1100 FTW. 2 post's later he hits 4.6GHz Look at his Everest Read speed. OMG I gotta get one of those chips.

My point is you don't have to have a AM3 mobo to take advantage of faster speed for both ram and cpu. AM3 mobo's just makes it easier to get there.

Currently, on the Official BIOS of the Destroyer & MSI 980a, the Destoryer wins hands down.

It's a much better board.

The MSI 980a & 750a boards are rather... how should I say.. lack luster. They're trying to gather the few AM2+ users that want to go DDR3.
