CPU compatibility list for the M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition (cpu-upgrade.com) (includes Phenoms with more than 2 cores. >LINK

Links arguing that the 7750 does work:
This one has many other links in it> LINK

Newegg links:
  • 8750: Reviews here from users named "Wokpoker", "Headgear", and "Sphinx64", all regarding M2N boards used with this Phenom model.> 3-core Phenom 8750 Toliman 2.4GHz

  • 9850BE:Reviews HERE from user named "Kawboy", HERE from user named "Seaguy", "Hotshop420", and "artvandalay", HERE from users named "N/A" (anonymous), and "joelsplace", HERE from users named "DJSco", "n/a" (anonymous1), "drpatt", "N/A" (anonymous2), "Ameoba", and "slaxative", HERE from users "PaulGo" and "beefdog", HERE from users "je2854", "lowlymarine", "srvrgeek", "Cell", "BryanP", "Slayer_27", "buzzlebee69", and "n/a"(anonymous1), HERE from users "24/7 Techie", "DiddyHo", "forshizzleone", "Tech L", "N/A"(anonymous1), "N/A"(anonymous2), and "EQUiLiiBRiUM", and finally HERE from users "mdk777", "jkatt12", "N/A"(anonymous1), and "AmbroseAthan". (4-core AMD 9850BE 2.5GHz)

  • 9950: Reviews from users HERE, HERE, and HERE (4-core AMD Phenom 9950 Agena 2.6GHz)

  • EDIT: I MUST ADD THE BEAST: The 4-core AMD Phenom II X4 940 BLACK EDITION 3.0GHz (Deneb core). There are some M2N references in the reviews! Absolute most powerful AMD desktop CPU on the market right now, and OUR MOBO CAN STILL TAKE IT! :-D A Newegg user writes about this CPU: For the moment I have it running in an M2N32-Sli Deluxe, with bios update it runs fine, but warmer than it did in a newer board.
    It's a 125W core, so I personally wouldn't buy it, but it sure RIPS!

Links regarding use of Phenom cores on M2N32:
Good stuff here. Note: This 1 says there may be compatibility probs with Phenoms if you use Vista. Any info??> LINK

There is much more out there on this topic, but I'd rather not do any more summarizing. If you only search for it, you should find it! I <3 Newegg. This thread has long since needed an update on this topic... this ought to earn me some kudos...

I wonder if I have a quad core and two really good GPU's with 2 dvi outs per card hooked up to four monitors, would I be able to play 4 different cingle CPU intesive games at the same time.

NVM, I guess It would be kind of hard to share the mouse and keyboard for all four games. Duh...

It would be nice if it could be done becuase you could set up a really awesome stand alone gaming server FTW.

LoL.

Yes, theoretically, if the system is set to run in isolated core mode (not sure what it's called) it would even be able to run separate operating systems. Something about "core virtualization" or something... That is how mainframes work with "thin clients" as the access terminals. This is best implemented with quad-channel memory access (meaning that separate memory channels are physically implemented in the motherboard, and each is assigned to a separate core (provided there are the same number of cores as RAM channels.)

Regarding the keyboard/mouse stuff, as long as you have enough USB ports, you can allot different ports to the different "systems" within your system.

Now, back to the topic...
WHO IS GOING TO UPGRADE, BABIES?!

Well guess I am joining this club too.

I went nutz and I went out and bought the Phenom II 940. My last final upgrade for this motherboard. Hopefully this will hold out for a long while. I just installed it and everything appears to run! Dam thermal paste is mess

All I did for this was I cleared the bios and left everything on auto and it appears to detect everything!

Phenom II on M2N32-SLI!!!!!!! It works!!!!!

I recently formatted so I have nothing to really test with

So heres what I've done so far. I haven't had too much time to play with it yet though.

I threw a full load on to it for 20min and it ran at max 57C and average it sat at 56C on full load. That okay right? I forgot what my old temp was. Looks like I have enough thermal paste on it.

I have also quickly tested to see if I can load all 4 ram slots and jam in the memory. It seems to work okay windows boots up and acknowledges it all. But here is what I am confused about. When I have just 4gb of ram, before my old cpu would give me 4096mb of ram. Now its 3837mb available... What happend? And the more ram I add the more keeps dissapearing. *scratches head*

Cool and Quiet doesn't seem to work (unless I forgot to install the drivers or something...) it doesn't lower the multiplier at all so I am locked at 3Ghz with a 125W CPU

Now if I attempt to shut down, I always get a blue screen of death with different error messages. And it just reboots instead of shut down. Why would this happen? I just formated my computer, do I have to do it again for a new CPU?

Hopefully I will get to play with it more tommorow and on the weekend.

Edit: Okay this time it shut down with no problems... I'm so confused...

@Raging Inferno
+1rep for getting the phenomII to work on a M2N32 and sharing it with us.

I'm very interested in the performance measured against the other CPU's, especially against the AthlonX2 @3000 MHz, since that's where I am at right now, but also against the 7750 @3000, and the 9850 @3000.

You dont happen to have all those CPU's lying around do you?
