From what I know it should. I have M2N32 Premium Vista Ed. and looking through the CPU support I saw that X4 940 125W is supported. Just make sure you have the latest BIOS update and there should not be any problems.
I am shopping for the new CPU also and 940 is my first consideration. Guys on this forum helped me make up my mind:-)
Best regards!

sli deluxe has the Wifi Adaptor and the Vista Ed has some memory thing in the place of the wifi adaptor, an infrared receiver and remote. Other than that there is really not that much difference.

so using the vista bios should be fine?
post #5305 of 12343
Hey all, I'm glad I found this thread. It seems like a great source of advice for what I'm about to do.

I read that AM2 boards have been getting BIOS updates for newer chips. I went ahead and bought a AM3 chip, the newish Phenom II X2 555 BE, hoping I could get it to work. First of all, is it possible?

I managed to get it to boot after I updated the BIOS, powered down, and replaced the cpu. It booted into Windows and it was noticably loading faster, detecting hardware and whatnot. It went for about a minute, until I tried using the Start menu to open a browser. It partly froze where the Start menu and other things wouldn't work, but I could still move my mouse. So I powered down, not wanting to damage my CPU, and it wouldn't boot after. Not too discouraged, I unplugged it, drained the battery, cleared the CMOS, and went to bed. I woke up today and it booted to BIOS, so I had another shot at dinking around.

This time I wanted to be sure that I didn't overvolt, although undervolting won't really help it boot any better. So I set the multipliers correctly, 200 x 16, reduced the HT to x3 in case there were some conflicts, and I think enabled C1E support. It didn't even boot to windows this time.

I just read on a few websites that surprisingly it runs at a v 1.4. It's way higher than I thought. Also, I need to Ungang my memory I believe, as other AM3 chips have had a conflict there as well. I read something about not being able to use PCIE video, but I really don't understand how that factors in, if at all, to this specific CPU.

My next BIOS boot, I plan on enabling C1E support, unganging memory, 200 x 16, HT x4, and upping the voltage to 1.375, then seeing what happens. If any of you have any advice from your vast knowledge of this board, it'd help a great deal.

Could I potentially fry my CPU using it on an incompatible board? What would be the conditions for this? I'm trying to proceed carefully, so any advice on damage prevention would be great too, thanks.

@Crack3rm4n

I'm about 2 days behind you. I just got the Phenom II X2 555 BE in the mail yesterday. I haven't had a chance to start the process yet. I'll be watching the responses you receive. Here is one post referring to the 955be which I believe is the 555be once the other two cores are enabled (God willing!).

http://www.overclock.net/7594611-post3945.html

I'm still reading up on what needs to be done, so I'm absolutely no help. But, from what I've read in this forum, there is plenty of help to be had.


Best of luck, let us know how it goes.

Gyro,
Do you know when 3001 will be available? I'm about to install a Phenom II x2 555be. Do you think I should wait and flash to that bios to be sure?

Thanks.
