post #7051 of 12360
hey all, relatively new here i have some questions regarding my m2n sli deluxe that i cannot sort out

ive been running mine since 2007/08

currently upgraded and running:
enermax revolution 1050 W psu
bios version 5001
amd 955 be x4 phenom II with a 18x mutipler = 3.618 ghz
4 Gb of DDR2 667
Gefroce 7950 gt ko (super-clocked) x2
under windows 7 64bit



my questions is regarding sli mode

i recently acquired the second geforce 7950 gt ko and i cannot get my system to post anything with the second card installed.

both cards work individually on the mother board and i have also confirmed there bios's to be identical as well.

the system will not post with more then 1 g-card installed.

all i see is the case fans continuously running and all dvd/cd & disk drives lights cycle on and off. plus all fans sound as if they are pulsating (spin up and down ever few seconds)

i need some help bug testing this one out?
any suggestions that i should try

Those 4 sticks were really just a placeholder until I could either get my Corsair to function, or buy some memory the board likes, and then toss them into my older Dell... but after having tried 5 different sets of RAM, each with a multitude of different settings and variables, I've decided I've had enough of the headaches this board is causing. I've spent nearly a week on it now, and I haven't gotten anywhere. Spinning my wheels...

It's time to junk it and replace it with a different board. Sad I know, but hey, it either works or it doesn't, y'know?

You're right, it does seem bloody hard to find nForce+DDR2 boards now. I did lots of research, and it came down to the Asus M3N72-D, MSI K9N2 Platinum, or Foxconn Destroyer. All DDR2, since I'm not about to abandon my 4GB of Corsair just yet (also for budgetary reasons. Put simply, I just don't have the cash for DDR3, atm). I am also not fond of ATI graphics, mainly because of the drivers/software, and because I want to stick with SLI since it's a hardware-based technology, whereas Crossfire is software-based, which introduces CPU overhead.

In the end, I decided on the Foxconn. I located a *new* one on eBay. If what I've read here and elsewhere about this board rings true, I don't think I'll be disappointed with it at all.

I am disappointed however that I've ended up having to spend well over $100 all-in (shipping from the US to Canada sucks.) to replace a board that WAS working with 3GB (2x1GB, 2x512MB) of Corsair XMS2 before I got it. :-/

I'lll report back when the new board arrives and I've had a chance to fully test it with all my components.

Thanks again for all the help.
A destroyer club thread can be found here http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...asts-club.html.

Good luck,sorry we could not get your board working right.

So decided for 640 (thats better to OC then 645 according to allot of tests) since it only costed 95€. Thats 40€ cheaper then 645 and alot cheaper then the 9-series-cpus.

I am very happy with this cpu. I have managed to run it on 3.8ghz for several hours without ANY problem (playing WoW only during this time though). Havent tried higher... dont want to push it since Speedfan has problem reading the temp correct.

Now running it on 3333mhz, stable. Never experienced any problems...

Upgraded from the AMD 2x 6000+, and a noticeable change! Feels like a new computer!

(If anyone got tips of things to change, they are welcome to tell me, since I am no expert on this at all).
Welcome andersson82,

Looks good from here.(except your validation is rejected)

Good luck

Try both cards one at a time in the black pci-e x8 slot,see if it will boot that way.
Is the cpu voltage really at 1.12v for 3.6mhz?

Good luck

it doesn't boot off the black slot for either card, however according to the owners manual the black pci-e x16 slot only operates in conjunction with the blue pci-e 16x position being occupied

http://www.scribd.com/doc/33010679/m...erboard-Manual
p. 2-19

unless im mistaken anyone else know if u can use either or pci-e slot ??

yes the voltage is really at 1.12 v

i've seen a few 955 stable at 4+ Ghz but i rather not push my new cpu with out a better heat sink installed.

fun info.. the 955 be holds the fastest overclock just over 7 Ghz and stable.(liquid nitrogen then liquid helium to do it)

strmckr, I wasn't sure if it would work or not, it works on the the M2N32.

Maybe it's unstable with two cards, try your vcore at 1.35v(stock).

I get you on the data sheet shorty.Done

Hi!

Is this the home of the best board in the world? Seems that way!

Got this board back tail end of 2006, sweet spot for processor then was the Althlon 64 X2 4600+ I still have in it. Never have I had a machine that is just so damn stable, true this is my first box that I have built with brand name parts, but this is stable and fast. So stable and fast that I have never wanted to change anything... until now...

I've gone back to linux a bit, using virtualbox to host virtual machines and started to feel that need for more speed. The addition of a 1080 capable monitor has made that need for more speed now an ache.

I'm looking at those 945 Phenom II's and notice that they need the latest beta BIOS...ohoh! beta BIOS - are there two words which could be less comfortable beside each other? A swift google leads me here. WOW! A veritable treasuretrove of tips and tricks!

Anyway, I'm rambling! Hello all! Great to see so many appreciate this rock solid board and once I've read all the posts, so many! I'll start stretching this box and see what it will do, no doubt asking questions along the way.

Hi and thanks

I Don't think you will be the least bit dissapointed w/the Destroyer unless your wanting to run a Ph II X6 core CPU. We do not have X6 supported bios yet but it is supposedly in the woodworks.

I look forwared to hearing about your new hardware results.

i tied the vcore mod in the bios nothing improved still the same thing no post

im not even getting an audio warning tone for a glitch

both cards work in sli mode i tested that out on a friends computer today i'm thinking the pci-e slot is ko'ed

which will defiantly suck as Ive never used it in the life of this great mother board and it could have even been a factory defected part crappy to find out his far down the road...

This may not help either but have you updated the mb/chipset(nforce) drivers?
