quick question, looking at throwing a AMD Phenom II X4 945 Quad Core Processor AM3 3.0GHZ 8MB Cache 95W 45NM into my m2n-sli with 1701 bios should i be good to go, and is it a good overclocker?

also have read good things about the AMD HDZ940XCJ4DGI Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Quad Core Processor - 3.00GHz, 6MB Cache, 1800MHz (3600 MT/s) FSB, Deneb, Quad-Core, Socket AM2+, Unlocked Multiplier, OEM CPU

working on doing a slow going upgrade gonna do cpu-cooling-ram-gpu advice for best peices this mobo. originally this will be for my current gaming needs, and eventually switching its purpose to a home server/home entertainment center, gpu with hdmi support that will not burn up under 1080p 52inch lcd is a must, from there im flexible on parts, looking for duribility more than speed and overclockability as this thing runs 24/7

Lucao, A 10% OC will be just fine. that would put you at 3300MHz. As long as you keep the cpu cool and don't overvolt it to much you should be just fine and if your lucky you will get away w/a little more OC on stock voltages.

If you are running bios 1701 now, your board should an M2N-sli "deluxe", am I correct? It makes a big difference.

No don't use the AI overclock, it tends to overvolt. Do it manually in the bios.

You should be able to run 220 x 15 =3300mhz at stock cpu volts.

Just set the cpu frequency to 220 and take the cpu voltage off auto and set it to 1.35v.(you may have to set it to something like 1.3125v or there abouts in the bios, because these boards tend to put out more volts than what the bios is set at).

Congrats and good luck

But I can tell you nothing about these settings because I have no idea.

Good luck

... AHCI its the option, to activate real SATA transfers.
if you dont selected, yours STA HDD, works like IDE HDD (more slow)

I know on my Destroyer mobo's I have that option and it is specifically IDE, AHCI & RAID mode. Now in RAID mode on the Destroyer the SATA ports are automatically ran in AHCI mode. I totally forgot about that. I'll go poke around in my bios right now.

That is because it does not exist. As far as I can tell " I read the manual regarding IDE/SATA/RAID " the mobo was not designed w/a SATA/AHCI controller and there for will not support AHCI how ever you can use RAID wich is faster then AHCI any way.

OK guys I just got my X4 955 installed and quickly put in my same overclocked settings using the OC save tool in the bios. Makes for less frustration

Any way just wanted to see if I would have a god send and not have to use NV Sys Tools but no such luck.

Here she is on the first boot.



OK this is w/the Nvidia System tools installed and there is no difference from my X4 940 w/the same settings. So I tried to up the cpu spd by multi and the same diminishing returns happens w/the 3.7GHz clocks. Oh well see for your self. I'll see what I can do w/4x2GB PC8500 and cross compare my results w/those I get using my Destroyer...
