Been lingering around the thread for several months, but finally joined! I updated my bios to 5002, bought an X3 440, virtually plug and play. This is a huge upgrade compared to my 3800+. Had one issue with cool n' quiet causing the cpu fan to pulse. After turning on C1E support and tweaking with a few different setting it finally settled down and runs - cool n' quiet to say the least. Thanks for the awesome thread! M2N32-SLI deluxe is a beast !! Right next to my A7N8X Deluxe.

Your ram is rated for 2.2v@1066,try 2.1v@800.

Good luck

My 25 yo son who had a similar system to mine (with the 955) did give up two weeks ago and ordered a new MB and DDR3.
Ive had 2 use 195.62 with my 9600's as all the others drop the performance
of my cards, lets hope 257.26 which should be out end of the month is abit
better.

As far as getting a new mobo i am rather gonna wait 2 see the new AMD
offerings next year.

Could someone put the multiplier NB <-> SB x1 and run 2 graphics cards such gts250/9800gtx+ in SLI mode and check the performance, no Do you have lag? (Increase FPS but the picture slows down) On m2n32-sli deluxe sure.

Thanks in advance.

Hello all, I decided to register just to write about my recent experiences with this great motherboard.

I had AMD X2 5600+ for a couple of years, and I decided to update my system last friday. I have been reading this thread for quite a long time, so I knew that Phenom II's would work pretty easy. I bought Phenom II 965 125W edition from a local shop, it cost 180 euros here in Finland.

I had already updated my bios to the newest Beta 5002, so I just dropped the CPU in, installed my Noctua NH-U12P on top of it and cleared my bios. Computer booted successfully. I set voltages (1,3750 CPU 2.05 RAM) and RAM timings (DDR2 800mhz 4-4-4-14), CPU multiplier 18,5 and disabled some useless features in bios.

As I have Nvidia GTX 260, I had Nvidia System Tools installed, but there was a problem. The performance group did not let me change processor multiplier, it only showed me bus frequency. This was solved by some searching, I had AMD Fusion utility power profile activated. Changed it to Performance and boom, I was able to change the multiplier in Nvidia Performance group.

I am now running my CPU at 18,5 * 208 = 2848 MHz @ 1.4V, and my temps are somewhere around 50-54 after a full hour of stress with either Prime95 or LinX. The system is rock solid, and by the way my GPU is overclocked too. All in all a very painless installation of supposedly not supported CPU to a rather old but awesome motherboard. Next thing I will buy is some new memory, I am thinking of 4 pieces of 2 Gb A-Data DDR2 1066 MHz CL5, two-pack costing around 70 € here.

Now I would like to know some benchmarks, please people if you have some time would you run LinX on your system? Here is the Download link. My best run is 43,3489 GFlops at stock settings in LinX, running Windows 7 64 bit.

A pretty long post, but I think I owe it to this community. A BIG thanks to you all (and ASUS too) for keeping this motherboard alive for so long!

Welcome jkoljo,

Glad all went smooth for you.

Be aware though that if you use 4 sticks of 1066 you will in all likelyhood have too run them at 800 and oc to achieve 1066.

And if you please, post a cpu-z validation link. Thanks

Good luck

Sorry folks but I'am real new to the OC thing..... To be frank, don't care to do any overclock, just want the upgrade to work is all.... I don't play games on the PC though I have found myself in need to do computer simulations, there fore I need to figure this crap out.

How come? I remember that I have DDR2 1066 option in ram, so I think I can set the memory divider so that I do not have to OC. Or is it a bios incompatiblity? Also someone said somewhere that two sticks of ram is better than four, is it so?

Here is my validation:
