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.
Is that the best board for the future? I really want to be able to upgrade and it didn't say it supported AM3... Is nForce 780a the chipset I want to be going with?

What the best board for the pheom II 940? I need Fireware, Raid and DDR2 1066 (I have 4 kingston 1mb sticks I'd like to re-use) it would be nice if I could use better mem in the future, maybe ddr3?

I'm also probably going to get 2 more HD when/If I order the new mobo.. might as well go 4 in the Raid 0 Setup... Think my powersupply will be okay for my setup?

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



Thanks!
Firewire is becoming less common on boards unless you switch to Intel or move up to a pricier board. I'm hoping to get more use out of my Asus M2N series since I invested in a lot of DDR 2 RAM.

just thought i'd share something interesting that happened. i was having issues with a 4870 on my m2n mobo. and right after i decided to get an rma, i go by one of the more remote future shops and find 2 9800 GTs on clearance sitting next two each other. they're a low power version with hdmi. and 1gb. each for 79.99. i thought it over for 5 minutes and rang them up. got home, threw them in after tossing out the 4870 and amazing! they perform just as well as a 4870 for a lesser price. no issues, no lockups, no BSODs. smooth gameplay and less noise. i wanted to give ati another shot after some years but it looks like i'll stick with nvidia for now. with the 30 dollars or so i get back afte the rebate ima start putting $ aside for a 940. and here i thought i'd maybe have to switch my m2n!

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.

Gyro

I guess I'll give this a try... I have no idea why it won't boot anymore... it was at least getting into windows before.. slowly but it was getting there.. now that I tried to change DDR2 and multiplier settings it wont get it...

Mind you I reset cmos and tried to go back to all default.. nada.. it posts... then when it gets to where it's supposed to show the xp splash screen it reboots itself

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?
I think it would be a nice upgrade.
Your x2 hsf would fit the x4.
retail box x4 will come with a new hsf.use which ever is bigger
If you wanted to save a few bucks you could get an oem, no hsf cpu only(if you can find one).

Good luck

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!
What was the problem with the mb when you rma'd.
So it's booting but craps out when windows try,s to load?
maybe windows is fubar.

Good luck

780a at least, or a 980a.
There are only two choices in the 980a asus ddr2 and msi ddr3.
ddr3 won't fit ddr2 and visa versa.
So if you go with a ddr3 mb you will need new ram also.

Good luck

Glad you got it sorted.

Good luck

Maybe try a windows repair.Might be corrupt?
Are you getting a/the single short beep at startup? (The one that means all is well continue with boot)

Good luck

and breath out..

It is one of the best Nvidia chiped board for the present day and age. Tomorrow may be a different story. However I would not try to find a mobo that you will be able to run both AM2+ & AM3 ram in. I don't know of any off hand and if any such mobo exists I would stear clear of it as it is probably not an enthusiasts mobo but more or less a mobo to get you intigrated into a full AM3 rig one part at a time. I think I heard something about Gigabyte having such a mobo but I can't recal atm. I am running a Destroyer w/a Ph II x4 940 and Corsair XMS2 1066 RAM in my sig rig. It is not the very best. If you want the very best you have several other options but those would include higher expenses such as Intel I7 920 and up along w/EVGA's X58 chipped mobo's.

Basically you have to choose your form factor before you choose a mobo if you really want to maximise your systems potential.

We may see a Newer 980a SLI chipped mobo for AM3 CPU's. However at the moment the only one that comes to mind is the one that MSI makes.
