I'm currently running the 1604 BIOS version.
ASUS states it will work with bios 1701 (?) but there are no links posted beyond 1604.

Thank for the reply N2,

As far as I get, you suggest me to have a 6000+ (3.1ghz) or 7750BE.

But, are we 100% sure that 7750BE's work flawlessly on M2N32; because acc. to the asus support page it is not supported by any released bios yet (and I read somewhere else asus has no plan to release any further bios for this board).

I'm getting lost.
Because yesterday I read some reviews showing that even OC'ed x3 8450's beat x2 6000's in many apps. (not mainly today's games but it is expected to see more titles to have +2 core support in the near future).

So today's question is (sorted acc to price):

x2 6000+(3.1) or x3 8450 or x2 7750be

(for sure all of them will be OC'ed before use)
Regards,

Not many boards come built with 2*1gig nics and wifi on top of that. As far as the type of cpu you should run well I think it up to you to determine wether you plan on overclocking it or not. Bigger chache simply means that the CPU will be able to store more information as to what your hard drive is storing and where so it don't have to spend a lot of time searching all over the place for it when a specific file is requested via a game or spread sheet. So the more cache is usually better. More cache does seem to make a cpu run a little hotter beucase they require a bigger die size.

http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopCPUSideBySide.aspx?id=451&id=34

If you look at the link I referenced to AMD you will notice that the 2gig cache chip that only runs at 3Ghz is a 125w version of the x2 6000+ chip vs the 1gig chip runs at 3.1Ghz and is a 89w version. Simply put the 3.1Ghz will overclock a little easier and already runs a little faster out the gate. The smaller the die size and the lower the wattage = the cooler the cpu will run. Anther thing to consider. Your mobo is designed to run a chip up to 125w. It can run chips of 125w but it will also put more stress on your mobo. More stress = more heat on the powering componants. I.E. Capacitors VRM's etc etc. So the longer you run a 125w cpu then the more likely the mobo will not last as long as vs a mobo set up with a 89w or lower cpu.

Hope this help and good luck,

Regards,
Quite honestly I have not done the research on the 8450 or 7750be becuase I'm quite content running my x2 5400+ BE. I wish I had a solid answer for you or a link to help get you pointed in the right dirrection. Most of the members here at ocn prolly are about the same as me if they have that board or they are affraid to be the first to take the plunge and find out worse case senario that those chips don't work in these boards.

I have a couple of suggestions as I have mentioned before. I would try to find a local dealor that has oem cpu's and has a no hassel return policy so that you can test the chip to see if infact it will work in the board or not. Three reltailers come to mind. Fry's Electronics they are online, Comp USA and Tiger Direct if you are local to them then you can p/u same day just pay for gas to and from the store. If you are not local to any of those then you would have to pay for the shipping from and to plus you have to wait longer to get the chip and verifiy if it will work or not. In any case I would try that first if that is what you really want to do. you may pay more for the chip at one of those retailers but you have like 15 day's at frys and 30 days are tiger direct for returns.

Good Luck,

MW041443,

I see you are using a quad core with M2N32. I think you're happy with it? Can you share your experiences with us (like OC'ing details, game peformance, bios etc).

Thanks,

noobdown,

Do you have any clue for the support to 7750BE in M2N32 or you just comment by looking to the cpu choses I raised?

I have the M2N-SLI, not the M2N32-SLI. I'm not sure what the difference is. So far I'm happy with it though. It wouldn't work until I updated with the 1604 bios, then I managed to mess up my Windows installation somehow and had to reformat the drive.

At the moment I'm running it with a 14x multiplier (2.8GHz) but it doesn't appear to be stable under load. I need to re-apply thermal paste then I'll try again. I'm also trying to overclock it with tight memory (4-4-4-12) so that might be another issue. I'm kinda new to this overclocking thing so feel free to give me some pointers.

Oh and the only game I'm running at the moment is Left 4 Dead, which keeps crashing after 10-20 mnutes.. It runs great for those 10-20 minutes though.

EDIT: Trivial question - Why is my bus speed 200.9 when I set it to 200? I want 2.8GHz, not 2.81. >.<

Gentleman,
I have good news about 7750BE.
Finally I found someone running a 7750BE on M2N32. There is just a default Vcore problem which needs an attention. Here is the link for details.

Which is the same information as I stated earlier in post 491 this same thread:

I have done some research the last couple of weeks on the 7750 kuma core and the M2N32-sli deluxe. Here's what I found out:

Bad news:
- ASUS does not support the 7xxx series CPU's for the M2N32-SLI deluxe at the moment
- ASUS will not bring out a BIOS update for the 7xxx series in the (near) future. They are not currently working on it and it is not in the planning.

I have correspondence with ASUS support to back both statements up.

Good news:
- Some people say the kuma core is nothing more than the phenom I with 2 cores disabled, and so it is possible that the kuma is supported by the latest BIOS. I read so on the ASUS forum as well as here and on some other forums as well.
- I found one person who states that it actually does work. I have the link to the website here. Cartago2202 in post 170 The website is in German though, so I'll translate it:

So, on the M2N32 Sli DeLuxe with bios 2101 runs the 7750BE without problems. Its recognized in the BIOS and almost all settings are right, only the voltage is set too high. With me it was 1.36V. I have manually changed it to 1.225V (real 1.26V). Coretemp shows only one temperature 23C, everest shows cpu 48° ,cores 21°-21° (all idle).

Now for my question
Has someone here tried the 7750 on the M2N32-SLI deluxe. I would really love to know for sure that this thing works, before I buy it. If not I think I'll go for the Athlon X2 6000+ @3100 MHz
I found out that on Guru3D there was another person willing to try the 7750 on the M2N32-SLI deluxe, so I asked him to share the results and to provide proof in case it works. I also gave him the information I found out on the German forum, especially about the voltage setting in the BIOS.

I am really interested in the results. Also I would love to see some benchmarks against the Athlon X2 6000+ (3.1GHz).

Sorry for double post Supergroover,

Anyway, that much of proof is enough for me about 7750 on M2N32. I'll order one asap and keep you informed about the results.

No problemo! Glad to know more people are trying to find out.

I must confess I was tired of trying to find out and reasoned that more MHz has better performance increase than a better architecture at lower MHz. So I bought a X2 6000+ and OC-ed it to 3415 at the moment. I am going to push it some more in the future, but I'll need a new GPU first in order to see some interesting results, since my 7900GT is holding me back for now. Therefore I would really love to see some benchmarks on the M2N32-sli deluxe of the 7750 against the 6000.

- Super
