Really?

But I thought that seeing as the BIOS had picked up the CPU and had registered the RAM, then all is well at the BIOS stage? right? or could a bad BIOS still cause an OS issues?

I tried every type of Windows repair, they never make it to the end, always BSOD.

945 is back in its box. All the thermal paste is everywhere too, worried about putting it back in.

Did you try to add a little CPU core voltage to stablize your CPU so it don't BSOD and make sure your ram has enough volts and is properly set for the timings.

I've owned the M2N32-SLI DELUXE since aug. 2006. I had hoped it would last me 4 years. Currently with luck it will last another 3years. I've upgraded it a couple times, abandoned sli (due to power needs my seasonic is rock solid, but only 600watts and nvidia is too power hungry), wd raids for samsung (wd's just don't seem to last) and upgraded from a am2 2x to a phenom ii 940 4x.

It runs @3.5 on air and never ever fails me (except the boot thing and not waking up on occassion). Currently I have a 300 gig Vrapter as my boot drive, two samsung 750gigs in raid 0 for data and two samsung 1t in raid 1 as internal backup (I use this thing for work) with an extra 1t samsung to swapped in as needed. ram is 12gigs ganged, It rates a 5.9 wei (7.3 cpu/mem, 7.7 gpu and 5.9 for the raptor). At some point I may give the vraptor to my wife or use it for a swap drive and switch to ssd

Here is my validation: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1379019.

Glad to see others understand how simply over the top this mb is. Never have I seen one last as long or scale so well.

Cheers,

jdc

The computer is black and as it is home built a bit of a bastard -- the name is not meant to offend.

Nice to see you have your system all up to date and still using it w/modern hardware & software. Welcome bb.

I just started learning how to use Afterburner my self and I noticed the same thing as well as not being able to adjust the voltage in Afterburner. If no one here knows the answer then I would suggest poping into the Video section here at OCN and asking some GPU pro's.

Thanks for the welcome. The machine is great. I found this club whilst searching for something on google (what I can't remember). I was pretty amazed, but not surprised that there are fans of this MB.

Like I said it is one of a kind. I have been building PCs as an adjunct to my real work since the fastest chip on the block was an Harris 286 (oc'd from 16mhz to 20mhz) and this is really a stellar board.

I need to figure out how to get it to not fail on a reboot, but other than that it works like a charm. As it gets closer to the end of its life or if I decide I need crossfire I'll probably see how far i can push it. As it is the cpu runs a bit hot (mid 40's up to the mid to high 50's under load) so I am thinking I'll liquid cool it and the hd 5850. I have convinced myself that the hd 5850 can go much higher with serious cooling and a voltage increase. Whether or not this mb has the bandwidth or if the chip has the horsepower to take much more is might be another thing.

Did anyone here have to reinstall Windows 7 when they installed a new CPU?

Has anyone managed to boot up into their existing OS after changing CPU? to a 945 for example?

I was running winXp64 aw/ winXp 32 when I upgraded. I don't recall there being any issues with os, but it wasn't win7 so I guess I'm not a help.

Thanks Gyro that helps knowing theat its locked at 8 was starting to look like my avatar over this one.....
