post #5611 of 12343
I'm still using a x2 6400 in my M2N-SLI. I use it for audio work.
Any benefits moving up to a Phenom Quad. Would 4 cores at lower clock of .9 ghz be any improvement. Would this be an upgrade?

I really don't have any performance problems.

Would I have to replace the stock AMD cooler that came with x2 to use the Phenom?

[QUOTE=Robit;8890256]Right..... I knew that, I just wanted to add my 2 cents,cause of my past problems. Did try the 1701-no good. The only BIOS that seems to work is the 2209. Thanks [/QUOTE

My suggestion to you was to;

Try this and see if it helps you boot.

Go to bios/boot/boot settings configuration/halt on/change to "no errors".

If it does'nt help change back to "all errors".No harm done.

here is a quick link to cpu-z for DDR2-948. It's not 1066 but headed that direction.

EDIT: Oops I forgot to add the link. Any way I found a better one. @ 1070MHz

and here is my x2 5400+ w/DDR2-800 @1066 ram spd's.

That was taken from this post here.

As you can see 1066 ram spd is obtainable. You'll just have to work a little to get there.

Man what a pos.. Really I'm just at the point of giving up on her..

I can't even get to the splash screen anymore... setting everything to auto... nada.. zilch..

I think I'm done screwing around with this board... it died once... past expierence tells me it's probably not completley fixed..

There's no reason why I shouldn't be able to get past post anymore..

I'm looking at this now;

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131367

I looking for a board that has firewire.... ddr2 1066, and can release the full potential of the phenom II..

Is this the best bang for my buck given I have the phenom II 940 and 4 sticks of 1gb kingston ddr 1066?? I'm not afraid to spend a bit more.. so ideas are welcome..



I'm no dummy, I've reset the cmost jumper, cleared bios, etc etc... just wont get past post anymore... ideas?


Thanks!

You just missed out on a Foxconn Destroyer w/a $80.00 MIR which would have put it at around $100.00 and for that price your not gonna find a better Nvidia based chipset enthusiast mobo for that price. I was gonna order one just to have a spare but realized my mobo is solid and would not be needing one any time soon. In any case Gyro pointed this one out to me a few days ago and it's already sold out. Hopefully they will get more supply in as this is the end of line for the Destroyer.

Hmm... is it possible to acheive something similar with the Deluxe variant? With my past overclocking experiments 220FSB is really the best I could get out of it. Though this is just a stock voltage overclock.

I have reached 235FSB for 3.5ghz in place of raising the multiplier. This RAM could certainly handle it since it's 1066 and not 800 which is what I used to have. So even right now my memory is underclocked at 880.

question:

I have just swaped all my gear into another case (thermaltake v9) now i can only get my main HDD working off the onboard sata slots - i can connect it to any and it will load

However i have a 2nd sata HDD it wont work connected to any sata slot bar the E-sata one on the back of the case.

Also same story with my DVDRW

What would you suggest is the problem here?

my ideas are:

1. Not enough power
2. Sata slots damaged and im just lucky that one HDD works
3. the sata cables are stuffed and i should replace

now i've swapped cords and changed things around as much as possible but still no love
ideas?

NOTE: all was well when i put the chip in its only since moving into a new case

PS i might move it into another case very soon so i can start drowning this chip

Sorry about that man, let me know if I need more info..

thanks

So do you think I should ditch it and get a new mobo? I really use the phenom II to potential with the m2n-sli-deluxe, correct?
