There are over forty variants of the M2N series (430a-630a-500-520-550-560-570-590 chipsets) each mb has a unique bios,even if they share the same chipset.

IE; m2n32-sli deluxe/m2n32-sli vista edition/m2n32 ws pro, same chipset but different bios.

If it does not match your mb exactly don't use it.

hi , bit of a lurker for a while but a first time poster .

I'm updating my ageing system, and have spent a fair amount of time reading through the various bits and bobs in here .

I was wondering if you good people would give me some advice on the best processor upgrade for me that wasn't too complicated , aka not unlocking cores or dealing with various cold boot issues as Im just really getting to grips with manual overclocking / tinkering.

current spec :

M2N Sli : currently running ver 5001
Amd 62 x2 5000+ ( 90 nm windsor ) with a very mild over clock
2x 2 gig pc2 4300
pair of 9600gt

I was thinking of something like this

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172684

I remember reading something about sticking to 95 watts or am i way off base ?

So Would it be suitable and relatively straight forward ?

thanks in advance .

Welcome synthaside.

That is a good choice of cpu.

As straight forward as it gets.

Just reset bios to defaults before you install it.

Good luck

Generally the C3 Revisions (95watt) are better on these older chipsets as the power consumption is less

So that chip will be great for your needs

Cheers , poised with the wallet at the ready just gotta clear it with she who knows best .

Any other suggestions that would be as easy with a bit more oomph I was tempted by the black edition but the trade of would be going up to 125 watts .

The 945 is the best bet at the moment in your case, coz it
works out of the box and has official support from asus.

If you want more oomph i would go with the 955(125watt),but
then u would need 2 follow the tutorial on the first page of this
thread as they are not officially supported

Anyone can help? Much thanks in advance.

Does a simple good old nForce 500 be so incompatible with 560 and above? It has all essentials required to work though, I think???
x2 6400 is tops for this board. I read at the Asus forums that the BIOS chip is too small for a quad core.

It would be interesting if the AMD tricore and quads without the level 3 cache could some way work on this board.
