Having issues with my M2N32 Sli Deluxe. The system often hangs itself up while starting. Then after a reboot, it's ok again.
Then the system starts up, but nvtools doesn't kick in, and all is running on 800 Mhz again.

It's been doing this since some time. I reinstalled nvtools a couple of times, but that doesn't help.

And if there's one thing I hate, is that when a machine doesn't work as it should be

So I decided to sell my mobo and stuff, and get my pc into the 2010's

You guys have any idea, wich mobo can replace the M2N32 Sli Deluxe?

It always ran well, and never giving me a headache. So I'm looking for an owner to take care of her in her last years on earth
Hey there Badpilot,

Sorry to hear you are having troubles.

Looks like the nv tools are being a pain in the butt for you.

Perhaps a cheaper solution than updating your whole rig might be to switch to a cpu that does not require the nvtools.

With the 5002 bios we have most of the new cpu's officially supported now.

Quite a few of the newer members are liking the x4 945,but if you want the unlocked multi, a x4 940 works just fine too.

My

Good luck


@ N2Gaming & ej52,

Have you guy's tried upping the CPU to NB HT voltage from stock 1.2v, to help when using higher ref clocks?

Well, in the area of 275 ref clock and medium cpu oc seems to be sweet spot for you guys.


Thanks for the benches guy's.

@N2Gaming

Hard luck there with the read speeds seems like the memory controller on the athlon is'nt that bad after seeing those results

Nope i hav'nt dared 2 up any mobo voltages as yet might try it later on
I remember reading a post on OCZ forums regarding my mobo and ram combo
where some1 upped the SB(dont knw why) voltage and was able 2 run their ram @4-4-4-15 1T 2.3V

I also think that the bios plays a big part, as i said before that i could hit 300 FSB
with the 2001 bios and could run my cpu @3.6GHz as u can see in my sig
so i will be loading older bioses over the weekend and post results

Have an M2N-32 SLI Deluxe Wireless and I love it. One of the best motherboards I've ever owned. It worked great for overclocking, too.

That is a very nice board.

But remember to account also for new ddr3 ram.

Good luck

I went to post these last night but the system kept crashing on me and I was tired any way. Now mind you these are no where near being stable but I did manage to get 9k reads that I was shooting for

I just figured I should give you all a Comparrison between the Foxconn Destroyer and the ASUS M2N32 SLI Deluxe.

First up is the M2N32 SLI Deluxe.



And then we have the Destroyer. Main bennefit to having The destroyer is 3 way SLI and 4x 16x PCIe slots, Duel onboar removable bios chips, Onboard GPU just incase your add on GPU/s should fail and a slightly better onboard sound chip.

However the ASUS has lots of features that many other Nvidia SLI/AMD boards don't have and that is LPT1, Wifi, 1 more 3 pin fan header proven that it can obtain slightly Higher HTT clocks but this is not always better. Overall I am still quite happy w/my Destroyer even though it obtains the lower HTT clocks.

I could not find a screen shot of my cpu and read speeds w/the same settings as the last picture up there ^ but they were almost identical. However I did happen to find the almost identical settings while using Ganged ram.



Here is a very decent run on my Destroyer in w/my Brisbane X2 5400+ BE




I was able to get my HTT to 342 on the M2N32 SLI Deluxe w/my X2 5400+ BE a while back. The bios I was using was the 2001 and the bios date and Ver: can been seen in the last image on the lower left of the CPU-Z screen shots.



Looks like that ^ bios is on the list of BIOS to try again. I don't think it will work w/the X4 PH II cpu's though but if it does. Look out because I'm sure I'll be able to destroy the Destroyer w/that bios. :O

Run prime95 for 3-4 hrs
That's a pretty mild oc if it passes prime95 you should be fine.

Good luck
