Whats the benefit of using the 980 chipset,does it work better with the nvidia card?I was hoping to get a mobo that would be future proof like the m2n32.So like the crosshair 3 would not work as well for a nvidia card as it would for ati.Cost is not a issue as long as i dont have to upgrade in a couple years down the road.

If you want to use sli with out any problems or difficulties getting it working properly then the 980a is the last Nvidia AMD SLi based chipset going to be made by Nvidia capable of doing it. If you only intend to run a single GPU then you would be better off using a 890FX chiped Mobo IMO.

Hey everyone.

I've got an M2N32-SLI Deluxe. I just received my X4 965 and another 2GB DDR800 (4GB Total). Though they're different CAS timing so I'll have to see if I can get the CAS5 onesI already have running at CAS4 ones I just bought, or just underclock the CAS4 ones to CAS5. Not sure yet.

I'm waiting for the thermal compound (argh!) to install the processor. I'll be running it on a Xigmatec S18something or other cooler. The direct heat pipe one with the 120mm fan on it. I can't remember the model name off the top of my head.

I'm wanting to buy 2 GTX 460's a month or 2 down the road when I have the money. Will these graphics cards work with this board?

I know it has dual PCIe x16 slots, so that's not a problem but I was reading something about PCIe 1.0 and 2.0? Does that matter?

Is running an SLI setup with an AM3 board pushing this board too far?

EDIT: Also, I forgot to ask. I'm trying to flash my BIOS to 2209, but EZ Flash 2 is not detecting my USB flash drive. I've tried formatting it to FAT32 and placing the BIN file on the root of the drive. I've tried formatting it with the HP bootable flash drive maker thing and putting the file on the root of the drive. Not working. I've also tried just placing the zip file on the root of my C:\\. Didn't work. I tried renaming the "2209.BIN" file to "2209.ROM" and putting on root of the flash drive - Didn't work. Right now I've got all 3 (the zip, the BIN, and the ROM) on the flash drive but it's not even being detected in EZ Flash. The motherboard is seeing it, and I've ran Linux off the USB drive in the past so I know it works. Any help with this?

I finally installed a Phenom II X4 965BE into my M2N32-SLI Deluxe. This CPU replaced a an Athlon64 X2 4200+.

Was having troubles especially with the keyboard in BIOS. Even the PS/2 keyboard was giving me problems. Didn't seem to like the arrow keys much nor the keyboard arrows either.

Air cooling with the old Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 64 I had on my old processor. Idling at 43C, which is actually cooler than my old CPU. Used settings described by the Hitoriko guide (but I'm running a Radeon HD5770 with no problems).

Didn't have time to play with OCing it yet, but I must say my SC2 loads quick and runs smoothly now

Here's my validation:

I also would like to get a board that can hang in their as long as my M2n did, I f you have any advice it would be great thanks
I love it. It has a ton of voltage controls, most of which have .001 adjustments. 2 full x16 PCIe slots. Which is the reason I bought it, my GTX 470 would saturate the x8 lanes when overclocked.
I have found that my Mushkin Blacklines 1600 @ 7-8-7 won't stabilize. This board seems to have some kind of issue with low timings from what I've seen and read. Mushkin did reccomend a set to me though it's here ( http://mushkin.com/Memory/Ridgeback/996826.aspx ) you can find them on newegg, too. I did get mine to run at 8-9-8 100% memtest, burntest, and OCCT large data size stable (1 hour)
The only other problem I've read and seen is if you use the front ieee1394 port on your case, the 2/3rd card may not seat right with it plugged in, but you can always use the one on the motherboard riser. Your cyclones shouldn't be bothered at all though, because the coolers on them only cover the cores.

A good hint would be that the default sleep state is [S1], Windows uses [S3]. Save yourself a lot of trouble and go into power management in the BIOS and set it to [OS] and [S3]. I spent a while on that one. lol
I would also completely disable the onboard GPU and all of hybrid SLI. It will only cause problems and slow you way down.
OH, and the owners' manual says that you have to put your dimms in slot 1 and 2, but it'll boot with them in 3 and 4, which is what AMD's seem to like.
Feel free to PM me back if you have any more questions. And props for the AMD/Nvidia setup!

Does m2n32 SLI Del support boot over PCI-E?

Thank you!

If your refering to being able to boot to PCIe slots first then yes. Actually you can choose if you want the mobo to boot from PCIe or regular PCI first.

Basically what ever you choose to boot to first will be your primary GPU so if you only have a PCI card you would select boot to PCI first and if it does not detect a PCI card then it should default to PCIe since that is the way the mobo was designed to be used in the first place.

I hope that is what you were asking. If not perhaps you can re ask your question in a different way.

Thank you very much for your help!

I have found this ssd hard disk with a very interesting price (and impressive speed...):
http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...ress-ssd-.html
But it require a bootable pci-express like as a hard disk...
What do you think about it?

That is very interesting indeed. I say go for it as long as the seller has a return pollicy against non compatable hardware.

As promised, I've uploaded the Stalker COP benchmark to my site:

http://www.sgidepot.co.uk/misc/pc/

ie. the direct URL is:

http://www.sgidepot.co.uk/misc/pc/st...ench-setup.exe

The file is 421MB. If any of you do download it, please let me know what download
speed you get, I'd be intrigued to know how well the Daily UK servers behave for
such downloads.

Ian.
