Thank you!
It should work fine. Indeed, PCIe SSDs are the next best thing for those who
can afford them.

My WS Pro used to boot from a PCIe U320 card (LSI 20320IE), so I know it
works ok in terms of device access. Now I'm using a PCIX SAS card with 2 x
450GB 15K SAS, but I also have a PCIe SAS card which I'll be testing shortly.

Ian.

hello, i would like to become an official member of the club,

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1364115

I could also use some help selecting a processor for an upgrade. Im having a hard time finding something that will work in it. Things im looking for are quad core, nice ocer, can be bought online and mailed in canada, or can be purchased at memoryexpress.com (calgary alberta online computer store i live there so can go right to the store) i would prefer an am3 chip if possible as i will be over the next couple months building up a new rig with am3 base. so ya something i can use now, and play with in the future. im not overly comfortably when it comes to flashing the bios, but i have no probs doing it just have to sit down and read first.

although thats what i want to do, im not entirely sure it is a good idea, ive been expeirencing some majorly slow boot times to bios, like 2 mins or so before it clicks to just the bios bootup screen, im thinkin its the psu its just a joe blow 550w my mom got me for christmas when my psu failed hardcore (melted itself to itself :S note to self clean psu fan in future) so on that end im looking to also get a new psu within the next month or 2, i want a quality one that has some good room on it for growth, but also is energy efficient, i dont care about noise, modular would be nice something in prob the $200-300 range.

Thanks for any help in advance, pm me any suggestions thanks!

Am I nuts to buy a CPU not supported for my mobo and then tweak OS based software to make it work?!

I have a HDZ965FBGMBOX - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition, S AM3, 3.4GHz, 8MB Cache, 125W, in my shopping basket!

I have 5002 BIOS.

I have NVIDIA Tools etc. installed.

Should I buy it and probably give myself a headache?

Or stick to the supported list with the AMD Phenom II X4 945, Deneb Core, Socket AM3, 3.0GHz, 8MB Total Cache, HT 2000MHz, 95W?

Your thoughts please?

The x4 945 will work w/out the need to use Nvidia system tools. The X4 965 BE will require you to force the cpu to your desired speeds by using Nvidia system tools. The 965 probably cost more and may run slightly warmer IDK. If you plan on upgrading your system in the near future say the next couple of months then I'd say your better off waiting to buy a CPU until you figure out what mother board model you will be purchasing and make your CPU selection at that time. Chips are always being improved w/new revisions and steppings not to mention additional cores are available on the newest AM3 systems. Thubian 6 core CPU's are available now 1055T and 1090T BE and both of those are said to be able to hit 4.0GHz easy on air w/the right motherboard and CPU Heatsink & Ram. The only way I would suggest buying a CPU for your M2N mobo is in the event you are on a tight budget and you don't want to have to dig deeper in your pockets to come up w/the additional money it will cost you for DDR3 RAM, CPU and the mobo to host the new build.

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?

Have you tried to reformat the flash drive again. Oh do you have your systems bios set up to detect the USB flash drive?

well the thing is ive been hearing more about a the new am3+ and am probably going to wait for it, but i do know that i will not be able to afford mobo+cpu+ram in one go on the new platform. My plan is to get an am3 chip that will run fine for now and is a quad core, will in most likelyhood run on an am3+ mobo when released, use that combo until i can afford the topend processor and upgrade path complete, wouldnt mind getting the 945, but all the canadian vendors i can find dont post what revision the chip is, and some of these dealers will deal older **** as if it was new so i need to be sure im getting a r3

I have formatted the flash drive several times. both with just the standard "Right click -> format" in Windows Explorer, as well as the HP bootable USB drive maker thing...neither seem to be working.

I'm not sure what you mean if I have the BIOS setup to detect USB Flash drives? When I go into the Boot -> Hard Drives section of the BIOS, the USB Flash drive is listed there, so it would seem the BIOS is detecting it....

Maybe the file you have is no good.

Have you tried to redownload the file again. What program are you using to unzip the bios file?
