gege70 you have the latest bios for your motherboard so no need to worry there.

Try opening the performance panel through its own link in the start menu - assuming you installed it like that? I didn't install nTune just this: NVIDIA System Tools 6.05

R.I.P. M2N-SLI Deluxe. Mine developed a heat problem somehow (it was the northbridge IIRC). Turned out to be somewhat common. Never tried to OC since my old Athlon 6000+ didn't have much headroom for any more than a 100Mhz boost.

After having searched for days in this forum, I decided to buy the Phenom II X4 955 BE for my M2N sli deluxe after the price drop and since 940 and other AM2+ cpus aren't available.Happy to find HOTORICO's guideline, I followed it by the letter.I bought the 955 C3 rev Socket AM3(938) [as CPU z states] which seems to differ from the 955's I see unlocked in the forum.
The problem is I cannot flash the bios with rev. 2209 as I'm having M2N sli and not M2N32 sli so I 'm stuck with rev.1701. Even though I reset my bios, manually put X16, 1.35V CPU, 2.1V RAM when i open nTune(all drivers and Nvidia soft have the last update) the cores are not accessible to unlock(no multiplier).I 'm runing Win 7 Ultimate X64 from an INTEL X25 40G ssd with 4X1G OCZ pc2-6400 DDR2 RAM & GeForce 8800 GT. I previously used an ATHLON 64 X2 4600+ and everything was excellent.Any workarounds, suggestions?
I already searched the forum with no luck(it's really huge).Some of you seem to have sorted it out and any help will be appreciated as I tried all the possible combinations for the last (long) 5 days...

Firstly - thanks for using the guide i hope it was helpful

Secondly - as gyro said try changing the power settings to performance also did you flash your bios before or after you fitted the chip

remeber before you even remove the old cpu you ahve to set everything to defults, update to the latest bios and reset the cmos via the onboard pins

if you notice your load times are quicker than before your half way there

let me know if theres anything more i can help with

Welcome sandu2000,

Have you ever changed a cpu before?
What cpu do you have installed right now?
Answer these first and then we'll get started.

yes i change my cpu before; i have installed amd athlon x2 5000+ 65nm (brisbane)
post #5807 of 12343
Ok,that's good.

For the x4 940 nothing special has to be done.

#1-go to bios,reset to defaults (press F5),then press save&exit (F10).
#2-Flash bios to ver 2209, if you are not already using it.Flashing instructions can be found here http://support.asus.com/technicaldoc...Language=en-us.Click on using asus ez-flash to flash bios.
#3-Shutdown pc,pull the power cord from psu,press power button of pc for 5 seconds to drain power,remove cmos battery,move cmos jumper to 2-3 pins for 1 minute.
#4-Put cmos battery back in,move jumpers back 1-2 pins.
#5- remove old cpu, place new cpu,install cooler.
#6- put power cord back in psu,start pc and go to bios,press F5 to set defaults for new cpu,press save & exit (F10).
#7-Go back into bios and set your prefered settings,save&exit (F10).
#8-Have fun with new cpu.


Good luck

ok guys heres the thing i upgraded my old 4600+ dual core on my am2 original mobo to a 720be which is an am3 and unofficially supported
but since i installed the cpu my sli 8800gt is somehow taking 1gb of my ram
i know this because in the bios it says 4gb total and 3gb usable .

When i remove on card 9 get 3.8gb of ram usable
but as soon as i put back the two cards i get 3gb usable
in cpuz i see 4gb but only 3gb in actual use

This problem starts within the bios
is there anyway to disable the caching of my ram to the 8800gt's
So to recap
1 gpu = 4gb ram to use
2 gpu's= 3gb ram to use

with my old 4600+ i get all my ram? is this because my mobo doesnt support the am3 officially ?
