I'm thinking I may be able to finally get a x4 955 to try out in this mobo. Fry's is having a deal on a cpu/mobo combo x4 955/ASUS M4A78L-M $149.00 I sure hope fry's still has some available this evening and they are the C3 Rev CPU's.

AlexALX: What exactly do you need this info for. I don't normally run my M2N32 SLI Deluxe mobo but my brother has been using it a lot lately and I may be able to get this info for you if I can make sense of it. You were asking about SLI and I did not understand what you were asking. I watched both of your SLI Youtube video's and it looks like it's working to me.

Has anyone else experience crashes/freezes using nvidia system tools to overclock with the latest graphics drivers?

I'm running Win7 64-bit, and when 196.21 came out I installed it, and started seeing crashes. Then again with 197.45. If I uninstall system tools or disable the profile (which of course kills the ability to use my 955X4), OR roll back to 195.62, then the crashes/freezes go away.

I even had one freeze bad enough that chkdsk ran on restart, and a bunch of things were corrupted, and I had to restore things from a system image disk.

So just wondering if anyone else has seen a similar problem?

Also, I have downloaded the new beta 257.15 off nVidia's site. I'll probably try it over the weekend, but I'm not that hopeful after the previous two drivers gave me grief.

But again, has anyone installed this latest beta and tried it while still running system tools?

Thanks!

@whiten

I also had that prob with newer drivers, i too find that 195.62 works the best
I am doing a fresh install of win7 today as i can't seem to get Nforce 15.53
to work (keeps restarting my pc) and will try 257.15 driver aswell

@AlexALX

What do u want the info 4 ?

Since no1 answered me b4 im gonna ask again...
Has any got a solution 2 rotating the retension bracket on the m2n32 so
i can have my 9900 blow air out the rear fan instead of the top?

Any ideas as to why my computer just won't let me go any further? My voltages are mentioned in the last post, but that doesn't seem to be helping.

I might have just ran into a wall that I can't seem to pass. Oh well.
If you have not already,try this guide http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html.It will help in finding what is holding you back.

Good luck

Cheers guys.
No, none of the m2n series officially supports the 955/965.
But they do work, with a little blood,sweat and some tears.

Good luck

Repaired installation and reinstalled all drivers and it seems ok now. Performance is much better in the tests I did at least. Overall I am happy despite those small problems.

Although this doesn't change much since I couldn't cold boot before because one of the fans on a second videocard won't start unless I turn the case on it's side(lol?).

Has anyone else had the cold boot problem with the 940?

I thought I did everything right: Reset bios, pull battery, clear jumper, put in battery, start pc, reset bios, start windows(eventually), update drivers, fix bios settings.
If your ram is 800, try setting to 677,see if that helps the coldboot problem.

Good luck

Thanx
Hey Lazy,the tools have the nvcp built in,so you should be able to install without an nvidia card.
It should just install the mb/cpu/ram parts of the tools.
If that does not work try uninstalling the ati drivers then install the tools then reinstall the ati drivers.

Good luck

On first boot with upgraded cpu and copper heatpipe heat sink and 120mm fan Ithe error was "unreasonable Ratio" googled it got that resolved but have never been serious about OC til now. LOL

I,m not using the tools but I have had a few bsod reboots.
I think it is bad nv vid drivers.

Try overwriting the older mb drivers.(do not uninstall old drivers, just install the new ones over the old and it should overwrite/update them).

The cpu mounting bracket is not rotatable(it is rectangle not square like intel)
The nonreference amd bracket on your cooler is the problem.
The bracket on the m2n32 is e/w unlike others that are n/s and coolers with stock amd mounting naturally sit blowing out the back.
So in short I don't think so.

Good luck

I bad speak English, so it is difficult to explain... I'll try again.

If you open 1 and 2 video screen on the floor (to create two browser windows), and play at the same time it (to match the scene and test), then immediately we will see that I am entering. So - if I turn on SLI, then my FPS rises (becomes higher, 40 for example), but the picture is jerky. If SLI is turned off - the FPS below (30 for example), but the picture does not slow, but goes smoothly. @google translate.

And please send me someone these data:

Thanks in advance. It is very important to me.
If my theory is correct, but I have a chipset in the BIOS settings do not apply. He writes that my x5 multipliers and the width of pci-e x16, but really a factor as x1, if you change the width of pci-e in x8, then nothing will change, and the windows still says that I have been actively pci-e x16. The same goes for tires HT. Multiplier is always x1. With the installation of nvidia system tools I was able to change the multiplier on the CPU <-> MCP as x5 (HT was 1000 mhz now, not 200 mhz), it has at least 40% growth in the games / tests. However, the frequency of HT between SB <-> NB still 200 mhz, but should be on the idea in 1000 mhz, therefore I ask to send the data at any one frequency. So I guess that is because 200 mhz SB <-> NB I have and there are lags in SLI mode. I hope the interpreter translated properly and you understand me. Thank you.

AlexALX,

I would hazard a guess that it's your 9850 not able to keep up with 2x gtx250's in sli.

I will get some pictures of what you want in a little while,ok.

Thanks. My theory now seems more than justified. I have HT 200 mhz SB <-> NB and I can not change that. And once I gave 40% increase in installation HT 100 mhz CPU <-> MCP that lags in SLI purely on the frequency of HT 200 mhz. I would sit the service center. I hope to be repaired, but otherwise I lose my computer ... Decent replacement of the motherboard does not exist to my requirements.

See screenshots (nvidia system tools set the multiplier x5 only for CPU <-> MCP, also made a screenshot without the nvidia system tools)... Even my northbridge some left (geforce 6150 ). And wrote in different places that I have a south bridge 570SLI then 590SLI... But just a mistake, I just 590SLI. Mb old revision...

I was under the impression that we are only suppose to use 1 monitor when SLI is enabled. It would not supprise me if I'm wrong but I have always thought only 1 monitor is suppose to be active during SLI.

Thx 4 your input about the bracket i just thought there might have been
sum1 who got it right, i will try to make a new bracket and see wat happens

As 4 the nforce drivers and tried both methods but they both fail
will be doing clean install later.

@N2Gaming

I have always used 2 monitors in SLI no diff for me.
