Nice, once I get mine fixed from its current 'degraded' mode (without hdd, only 2gb ram, weak psu), we'll compare



About PSU:
I was offered at work to get either of these for very good price:

Thermaltake Toughpower 750W ATX2 PSU W0116R - 3 yr warranty
Thermaltake Toughpower 750W ATX2 PSU W0203 - 5 yr warranty

Is it good PSU? equivalent to the Corsair ax850 (in quality, obviously not in watts..) or perhaps the cheaper Corsair tx850?

Thing is, the Thermaltak I can get locally for 145$, the Corsair, well to get the good price I'll have to have a friend ship it from the US, which makes it more expensive, and gonna take time...

Or if you want an unlocked multi the x4 940 works on your present bios.


Good luck

Hello again, I just wanted to say Thanks to Gyro and all the other Folks, who had helped me make the decision. As you can see in my sig there is a brand new Phenom II X4 945 C3 under the bonnet. I had bios 2209 working nicely and detecting the CPU correctly but as advised I went for the newest 5002.

This resulted in being unable to work with WinXP anymore as I was getting BSOD every time network connection was being established. Problem solved by installing Win7. I think XP would also work but it was an old install and probably messed up as well. Fresh install would possibly work fine.

With XP there was some strange issue with C&Q. CPU was running on full clocks all the time as if there was no C&Q whatsoever. Again, Win7 is fine.

There is some concern about the temps. BIOS reports quite high temps of 50+ on AC Freezer 64 PWM. This cooler was able to keep the power-hungry 6400+ in check and it's more than awkward that a 95W CPU has temps higher than a 125W one. Coretemp, on the other hand, shows massive decrease in heat and reports 37 idle and 47 under 100% load with prime95 on 4 cores. Any ideas?

Last thing would be the cooling then. Has anyone got any tips quiet, nicely performing air cooling for a PhII on M2N32-SLI Deluxe, better than my AC Freezer?

piaseq, glad we could help.

The AC freezer 64 is designed for dual core and only has a 92mm fan.

I tried one on my x3 720 and it was no better than the stock cooler.

What is your budget for a cooler?

Download Everest Ultimate(trial version) http://www.lavalys.com/products/everest-pc-diagnostics it seems to the best/most accurate monitor for these boards.

Good luck

I have a 700w Thermaltake Tough Power non modular PSU and it's been a great PSU for me. You could once again ask in the recommended PSU thread if any of the two units you intend to purchase are any good.

I bought my Freezer for my old 6400+ which came with no fan at all. So I have no experience with stock coolers. Thanks for the tip with Everest. I will post results as soon as I test it today later on.

Edit: readings attached.

I don't know how to interpret this, as cores have significantly lower temps than the "CPU"...

that is an odd issue. mine works with my oc, it just drops the multi unless i have the system under a good load, then it will max out to my oc. what are your bios setting at for your oc? make sure nothing is on auto.

I just have the multi set at 17x so its 3.4. i will check to make sure nothing is on auto when i get home...thanks

I had the same type of reading with my x3 720 in my M2N32-sli(and still do on my M4N98TD-evo),The core temps are the ones I would trust.
D/L this http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html and compare it to everest.
And split the difference

If you could squeeze another fan or two in your rig that might help your temps some too.

Good luck
