[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 707

post #7061 of 12360
Not long ago found this awesome club!

Glad to see I am not the only one to appreciate this unique mobo!
Proud to join the owners club too
lol I was excited to read that my old and good mobo not only supports the 965BE, but also going to support even 6 and 8 cores! here is for many years more with this mobo

And now to me
I have the system as in my signature, too tired to type it all again

I ordered the 965BE and hoefully have it sunday

I have not quite found a link to a single document with clear step by step instructions on how to do this... I am still running with the factore BIOS lol!

I am a power user I would say, yet I am new to overclocking...

I still dont know how to flash the bios (and fear this a bit - what if power outage just happens in these few seconds?), dont really undnerstand today's overclocking principles (I lost track when things moved to voltages, fsb, ht, multicores etc).


There are simply ****ton too many posts in this thread lol, I cant ever read them all in this lifetime... and the OP has no link to the info I am looking for, as new to overclocking... so I hope you can point me to something please


Also, looking for a watercooling solution to go with the new CPU here:
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-ii-965be.html
I think we should have our own section, and split the thread into many discussions....

So, what would you suggest? going with the official 5002 or something? or the custom bios?

Another fairly urgent question: Can I use the stock cooling while tweaking things and testing to be sure the system boots and works with the new CPU, before attaching the actual permanent cooling+thermic paste?

Beyond that, can I use stock cooler from my 4400+ for a day or so, until I get the cooler? unless I get answers and find it locally without ordering from overseas?


Thanks guys!

you can use stock cooling for few days, temps will be high though, and do not overclock with it or do some cpu stress tests or benchmarks, for normal work temps should be fine, but still on the high side,consider that only and just a really temporary solution for a few days or a week

finally i got my graphics cards working

stripped the board down to bare minimal out of my case on my testing station and got both cards to fire up and post

reinstalled the board then started installing piece by piece and i finally isolated the issue

usb910 can not have a muti card reader installed on it when using two graphics cards

i removed it and the system posts
reinstalled and i the issue reappeared

usb910 works fine with a usb expansions hooked up to it

That doesn't surprise me. I ran into something similar, my WS Pro wouldn't
POST if I had a PCIX RAID card installed unless one of the USB channels
was turned off. To me this kind of issue is a definite bug, but I bet it's
the kind of thing which doesn't get fixed during BIOS updates.

Ian.

PS. Re someone's earlier post, I can use either PCIe slot on my WS Pro just
fine on their own.

@Carmageddon,at the top of the data sheet on the first page there are instructions on AM3 installation.

Here is a link on how to flash a bios http://support.asus.com/technicaldoc...Language=en-us at the top, click on the "using asus ez-flash to update bios".Use 5002 bios.

If you bought a retail 965 it will come with a cooler,and will work fine for a mild oc.

Good luck


@strmckr, we could have guessed for along time to catch that.

Glad you got it fixed.+1 one for not giving up and for the fix.

enjoy.

figured it had to be something that i was overlooking... just wasn't expecting something that worked with 1 card not to work with two.

plus reading a bunch of the bugs for this board suggested it could have been something as trivial as a sequence of installed parts being incompatible.. so i broke down and started testing 1 at a time... not so much fun.

i found it by accident really.

the first thing i yanked out was the muti card reader and it booted i was pretty much in shock for the first thing i tried fixed it.

i didn't want to have to go buy a new mother board just yet i like this one so i might as well try to fix it

i also know i cant use my usb keyboard in bios 5001 nor will it accept the usb converted to ps2..

had to go dust off my old ps2 keyboard (good thing i kept it) to actually get the 955 be working on this board

That usb preventing the system from posting sounds like some kind of IRQ confilict that has to do w/detecting GPU's.
