It always feels good to karate-chop a bottleneck into oblivion.


EDIT: I was thinking of trying a mild overclock, but neither ntune or the BIOS will let me change the FSB; when I change it through the BIOS no difference shows up with CoreTemp.
There's not too much one can do to improve upon Rockstar's poorly programmed latest patch.

You mean 1.0.6.0? I tried that one: it improved the CPU shadow performance, but it also broke ENB Series graphical enhancement mod (improved reflections, ambient occlusion, and shadows, I believe, amongst other things) as well as the Ambient War mod (peds go crazy, hilarious!) so back to 1.0.4.0 I go.

With ENB Series and first person mod, coupled with increased peds and traffic, the game is beautiful and immersive; I've just been driving around and walking through crowds, not even much mass slaughter.


Anybody know why my FSB settings seem to be locked?

Did you follow the many sets of instructions that can be found in numberous places w/in the clubs posts.

Here is a more recent tutorial by Hitoriko:

How to Get AN AMD Phenom II X4 955/965 CPU Working On Your Asus M2N32 SLi Deluxe.
.

.
By Hitoriko – Excerpts from BigJohn44’s Guide
.

.
*NOTE* THIS IS ONLY A GUIDE - I nor Overclock.net or any members from The ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club can be held responsible if things go pear shaped proceed ahead at your own risk
.

.
*THANKS TO:
.
OVERCLOCK.NET – Greatest Overclocking forum I suggest you all join so A. you can thank the following people and B. Join the M2N32 Club!
.

.
BigJohn44 as he first found out this could be done and I have taken a lot of his original post and used in these steps – if you want this removed, modified or anything changed in anyway shape of form contact me via the forum.
.

.
GYRO & N2GAMING: 2 of the best guys on the forum always happy to help and give you ideas for overclocking and help when you stuff up .
.

.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
.

.
ASUS M2N32 SLi WITH 2209 BIOS this must be done BEFORE you install your new CPU
.
AMD Phenom II X4 955/965 CPU
.
SOME FORM OF AFTERMARKET CPU COOLER – (IM USING A ZALMAN CMPS9500-AM2)
.
PS/2 KEYBOARD
.

.
DOWNLOAD THE FOLLOWING:
.

.
BIOS UPDATE 2209 – Found Here.
NFORCE DRIVERS – Found Here.
NVIDIA System Tool Version 6.05 – Found Here.
CPU-Z – Found Here.
CORE TEMP – Found Here.
3DMARK06 – Found Here.

.
THESE ARENT NESSACERLY THE BEST PROGRAMS TO USE BUT THIS IS WHAT I Hitoriko USED.
.

.
NOTE: FOLLOW THESE STEPS EXACTLY, IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO I CANT BE 100% SURE THAT IT WILL WORK AND NO DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.
.

.
NOTE: FOR THIS TO WORK YOU MUST HAVE A NVIDIA GRAPHICS CARD IF YOU DON’T ONCE AGAIN I CANT BE 100% THAT YOU WILL GET THIS TO WORK.
.

.
1. DOWNLOAD & BACK UP
.

.
A. First Download all the drivers & programs listed above and backup any important files to either a spare HDD/USB or Burn to CD/DVD. When all the files are downloaded, uninstall your graphics drivers and any other NVIDIA software you have installed.
.

.
RESTART
.

.
B. Install the new graphics drivers, CPU-Z & Core temp
.

.
RESTART
.

.
Install Ntune, 3DMARK
.

.
RESTART
.

.
C. Run CPU-Z and validate your current settings, Next run core temp and minimize it, you should see your CPU temp in the taskbar next to your clock, then run 3DMARK and check your score write/save the details to notepad. Open core temp and write your MIN & MAX temps down and write/save the details to notepad.
.

.
BACKUP ALL FILES THAT ARE IMPORTANT – NOW WE GET SERIOUS!
.

.
SHUTDOWN THE PC AND MOVE ONTO PART 2
.

.
2. BIOS SETTINGS AND PRE-CPU INSTALL
.

.
Now first thing you need to do is go into the bios, and reset to defaults, save & exit and let the PC restart after it boots into Windows, extract the 2209 bios Zip file to your c:\\ it must be just in your c:\\ not in a folder or anything! Shutdown again.
.

.
Remove the power from the PC – TAKE THE POWER COARD OUT – remove the side panel so you can access your motherboard. Reset the Bios if you don’t know how to do this I suggest you stop now and read more about computers before venturing further. After resetting the BIOS its time to Flash your BIOS, to do this go to the last section in your bios screen and choose the EZFlash option it will ask for the BIOS file to use, choose the 2209 one in your C:\\ wait for it to upload and install when its complete you can save & exit from your bios and shut down the computer.
.

.
3. INSTALL THE CPU
.

.
Follow the standard process to do so and also check all your fans and give your case a general tidy, fix cables and remove any dust. – You may as well while your there.
.

.

.
4. CPU BIOS SETUP – FIRST TIME
.

.
just a quick check so you can get into windows and start getting the chip running 100%. Boot up and go into your BIOS, Go to the system tools tab and system config, this is where all your overclocking options are (as im sure you already know: D) now use the following settings and leave the rest.
.

.
- Change the Settings to Manual so you can adjust the CPU
.
- Change the CPU Voltage to at LEAST 1.33v
.
- Change the RAM Voltage to 2.1v (If you don’t know your RAM Voltage leave on AUTO)
.
- Change the Multi to x16
.

.
Leave everything else on Auto.
.

.
Save & Exit and boot into Windows
.

.
5. Here's what you have to do to make it work. When you installed the latest video drivers, it automatically created the NVIDIA Control Panel which allows you to adjust monitor resolutions, SLi, physx etc. When you installed The NVIDIA System Tool Version 6.05 - this contained a program called the Performance Tool and it will have integrated itself into the NVIDIA Control Panel.
.

.
Open the control panel and you will see the menu selection for the performance tool. Click on it and it'll ask you to agree that you won’t hold nvidia accountable for anything you damage while using said program, etc, etc. Agree and the performance feature will be available.
.

.
When you open the Control Panel you will have four selections (CPU, Motherboard, Memory and Video Card). Click on the CPU section at the top and you will find several adjustments for the cpu, to include dropdown selections for the four cores. Select the appropriate multiplier for each core (Change this Value to x16 for each core).
.

.
NOTE: One thing to note here is you must set the highest multiplier level you want to use in the bios first---otherwise, the core settings in the Performance Tool only permit what was set in the bios (for example, if you set 16x in the bios, then up to 16x will be available in the performance tool---17x, 17.5x, 18x, 18.5x, etc) set this to high and you wont be able to boot into windows and will have to start again from STEP 4.
.

.
Click apply and it will adjust your CPU clock speeds, now save profile, save the profile as BOOT – on the performance tab there is another option called profile policies click on that, then click on the second window WHEN THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET, select “The system first starts windows” then click load profile and choose the boot profile, click apply.
.

.
CPU-Z and all of the other measuring tools will now recognize all four cores and will give you the correct clock speeds.
.

.
You should now have your new quad core ready to use.
.

.

.
6. NOW GO AND REPEAT STEP 1 – C
.

.
Repeat Step 1 – C and check your scores and temps!
.

.

.

DDR2-1040 is not a bad ram speed at all. I'm guessing your timings are 5.5.5.15.2T or do you just have them all set on auto? I'm still looking for a C3 965 and when I get a decent enough deal on one I'll be sure to try the software overclocking method out on my M2N32 SLI Deluxe.

You do know your asking for a miracle w/those ram speed on any AM2/AM2+ mobo? Not to mention your not using Dice or LN2 right?

In any case you have a AM3 CPU in an AM2 mobo not an AM2+ but an AM2 and just the fact that you can use an AM3 CPU in it is miraculous in it self. Beggers can't be choosers " not that your a begger but but but " and we all have to do the best w/what these boards can do.

Remember these boards don't have any real NB mulitplier options and the HT links are running lower than normal as well.

About the best thing you can hope for is great SLI and Wifi support while utilizing the latest AM3 X4 cpu's.

Other than that I don't know what else I can say in words of encouragement. It is what it is like it or not

Live on Club M2N

Yes, Hitoriko's guide is what I used to set up my 965 (many thanks to Hitoriko, as well as BigJohn44 and... yourself, apparently), I'm just wondering why I can't change my FSB settings. I suppose I could try overclocking using the multiplier, or even not overclocking at all; I can't say it's been an unsatisfactory upgrade.

BTW, how can I become a member of this esteemed fraternity?

Well I'm not a student and don't think all our other members are so I don't really consider this club to be a fraternity! In any case all we need is a Valid CPU-Z link for new memberships. If you have already provided such info then please excuse me as I am a little slower these days to adding new members. Fret not as I do add new members in lump sums. I prefer to add several at once instead of one at a time.

Have to agree here, the numbers you are asking for is just to HIGH for this board...miracles would be needed. This has/is ONE amazing motherboard. I have NEVER had a motherboard that holds great performance utilzing modern CPU's this long....maye she live forerver...lol. BUT she has her limits....

In any case you have a AM3 CPU in an AM2 mobo not an AM2+ but an AM2 and just the fact that you can use an AM3 CPU in it is miraculous in it self. Beggers can't be choosers " not that your a begger but but but " and we all have to do the best w/what these boards can do.

Remember these boards don't have any real NB mulitplier options and the HT links are running lower than normal as well.

About the best thing you can hope for is great SLI and Wifi support while utilizing the latest AM3 X4 cpu's.

Other than that I don't know what else I can say in words of encouragement. It is what it is like it or not
