http://www.mediafire.com/?gxoxlv0kyic


i plan to run prime 95 to really see what comes up.. but this is my current settings i am using to transcode my media and play forged alliance..i feel it in my bones theres a lot more to be had..corsair sez the memory controller on the phenom isnt strong enough to handle the amount of ram i have at 1066.. enough said heres a run down of the hardware you are looking at:

m2n32-sli deluxe wireless edition
amd 9950 black edition phenom quad core
corsair 8500 dominator (4 gb x 1gb sticks 1066 v 4.3)
evga 260 gtx "scc edition" 896 ram
enermax liberty modular 500 watt p/s
4 Western Digital RE3 WD2502ABYS 250GB (quad raid 0 array)
LG 22x cd/dvd combo drive
AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART IN MY BOX: corsair h50 cooler

i look forward to gettin with ya guys..im sure together we can whoop those intel boys ")
Isn't that cooler more suitable for Intel boards?

What a great thread! It's just too bad I only found it now. I am sorry if this has already been asked, I tried searching and reading a few pages but there is a lot.

I've had my m2n-sli for over a year now and everything has been great, but it is about time to upgrade my 5000+. I was looking at the phenom x4 9850, but on the cpu support list it shows the 9750 and lower at 95W and nothing for the 9850.

http://ca.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=FsG6bN2HsOMpwLxD

Would I be able to use the 125W 9850 or is there a lower wattage one that I cannot find?

I am not the greatest when upgrading sorry for the question if it sounds dumb

It is showing the Phenom X4 9850 (HD9850WCJ4BGH)95 w,rev.B3,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core as supported.If you can find one.
There are two versions 9850 125w(HD985ZXAJ4BGH) and a 95w(HD9850WCJ4BGH)

Good luck

@Gyro: Thank you that is what I was looking for, guess I will just settle for the 9750, can't seem to find the 95W 9850 anywhere.

Just wondering with an unsupported processor PHENOM 940 and installing windows 7

is taking longer than usual!
Or is it just the 2209 bios

It seemed to take an age to install win7 on my setup (A fair bit longer than on my laptop with a far inferior CPU.)

It did this with both the RC1 and the Retail version but once installed runs like a dream

Just recently had a athlon x2 5000, win7 setup was very fast.

But now on windows 7 with phenom BIOS2209 - setup u have to wait along time for even the box to come up

the h50 comes with 2 back plates and 2 mounts for the pump /cooling head..for a total of 4 differnt socket types 2 amd 2 intel..im not sure why you would think its more suitable for intel?..now i dont have to run 20 fans in my case to expel the heat..it just gets blown out the back of my case via 120 mm fan included in the kit..

Right, I just read some technical reviews about that cooling system and the "experts" say that the Intel system is preferable dew to certain technicalities.
But hey, if it works on your system do not let me stop you:-) I was thinking about an upgrade to a "non fan environment" for a long time now, but I would need to buy a better full tower case to accommodate it.
Hope to see your Temperature results which might eventually, and finally, persuade me to move my metal from tropics in to a Mediterranean oasis:-)
best regards!
