I would trust the cpu-z vcore reading.
The difference between bios and software vcore readings are always off.
For example if I set vcore to 1.300v in the bios it shows as 1.344v in hw mon and cpu-z and everest.
setting it to not ignore just makes it display in hw,it is not for setting the voltage.

good luck

What board do you have?

60 is the max that amd reconmends and even if it were 62 i'd rather have a 2 degree lower because then you know your under the MAX level

C&Q has to be disabled to have a stable overclock so theres no power problems
How many watts have ur PSU?

You can see that a lot of users have good stuff in it running fine.
I play bfbc2 and I get 50+ fps @ 1920x1200 maxed setting and 8xAA/16xAF

Wow - I found this thread by accident. I've been spec'ing out a new system for gaming, but having a wife and kids really limits the cash I can put toward it. I expected to get an i5 750 and msi gd65 in a new system, but if you guys are getting 50+ fps then I may not have to spend so much.

I have two systems at the moment, an app/gaming system and a media server. The gaming system has the ASUS P5B-E and the media server has the M2N32-SLI.

For the cpu, I have been given a Q8300 from a friend, and for the gpu I have the GeForce GTX 275OC that just bought off another friend.

Can I pull off 50+ fps with these components?
Should I use the P5B or the M2N32?

Thanks!

I have the ASUS P5B-E in my gaming machine, and in the media server I have the M2N32-SLI, but I can swap these out if one is superior (can't find a VS thread yet...).

I am retired from the PPCLI.

I have read some of the reviews for the M/board. and was wondering what exactly the process is for O/C 590 sli chipset. I see it is clocked at 200mhz, and have read a review stating they got a stable o/c of 266. Locked PCI express to 100mhz. Set the CPU multiplier to x7, and switched memory to 553mhz. When they passed the 250 mhz barrier, increase voltage to C51XE chipset to 1.3v.
I am assuming in the bios this is NB to SB HT frequency, under chipset. Now where do you change the voltage to the chipset? What exactly does this process achieve by O/C the chipset?
I would like to start experimenting with O/C so I thought I would start with the m/board any advice and feedback would be greatly appreciated.

is it normal on these that i can set CPU Voltage to 1.5v with a Phenom 1 but CPUz records 1.2V anyway, is there no voltage control with the M2N-SLI and AMD Phenom Chips?

I don't know enough about intel to make a comparison, but I do know if you put a x4 940be or an x3 720be in the m2n32-sli with that gtx 275 you'll have a screaming rig that can perform as good as newer rigs.
If you have'nt already, look at the spreadsheet on the first page that'll give you and idea of what this board is capable of.

OT; My father was with 3bn ppcli in korea 52-53.
I was in the service in the 70's myself.veh tech @ cfb kingston.

Good luck

Here is a good place to start ;http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html.

There is no voltage control on the m2n-sli.
It is auto set to the stock voltage the cpu installed.
Sorry.

Waht are u doing against the big power consumption? C&Q dont work right?
62C is the throttle temp with the shut down temp at about 69-70C.. ive run 3 different phenom II processors and each one actually had a different throttle temp and shut off temp.. my x2 550 throttled at 65C and shut off at 72C my 940 just plain BSOD's at 60C no matter what.. and a 955 i used on a different build for some one never even throttled and just shut off at 70C.. could be motherboard differences or the processors themselves.. never really bothered to look into it..

a x4 940 will kill the q8300.. especially when you start overclocking since the q8300 doesnt overclock that great to begin with.. you will have absolutely no problems with being cpu limited in games on the GTX 275 unless your playing at a very low resolution like 1280x1024 but at that point you would be hitting 100FPS+ anyways.. use the m2n32-sli.. should work perfectly fine with a x4 940.. then move your gaming system to your media server with the q8300..
