[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 743

post #7421 of 12343
I just got my 940 black edition today. I flashed the bios the 5002 when I ordered it so i just plugged it in, reset the cmos, and it booted right up. Right now i have the cpu set at 207x16.5 and its plenty stable it just runs a little warm under full load with prime95 (59-60 degrees) so I've been trying to see how low i can get the voltage at this speed. i have the setting in the bios at 1.325v but when I'm in windows cpuz and pc probe both say the voltage is 1.36v. So my question is which one is right?

First time poster here, just signed up so I can report my experience with putting a 965 in an m2n-sli deluxe. Followed big-johns post to the letter and so far have had no issues running with bios version 5001.
Heres confirmation:


Currently running at 50degrees underload not sure if I want to push it with OCing without some extra cooling.

Bios i think.
Cooler stock? 60C are (imho) too much.

Hey Stu. I am new here also.
I just hope the 970BE works on my board as i can get it at a good price (roughly the same as the 965BE) and i have already bought ANOTHER after market cooler (best air cooler around), so i would appreciate if anyone can confirm that the Phenom II x4 970BE will be ok to use, seeing as the 965 BE does?

Thanks and great forum!!

More speed, but I have tried two runs of Vantage, @800mhz and @667, there are 2-300pt more for 800mhz..nothing imho

EDIT: u havent 667mhz, but 533, right? Well, 800mhz could be good thing

Right?

Thanks for the info on the 965BE on this board.. Glad to hear that they are great once you get them up and running.

I am gonna stick with 5002 for now (will have 2209 on my key drive just in case) since I already have it installed. My Zalman 9700 is approaching the 4 year marker and I can hear the ball bearings going bad so im going to pick up a the Zalman 9900 version which is pure copper. I might take a the plunge and get that 970be which technically should work in our boards. Hopefully I will be upgrading this old CPU in the next week or two.

I have a M2N32 SLI Deluxe board and I am in need of a CPU upgrade. I have recently discovered that my board now supports some newer Phenom II processors and I want one.

I have flashed the bios to 5002 and have ordered a Phenom II X4 945, but I have noticed that the model number does not exactly match up the same with the one on the Asus CPU support list. The one on the Asus list is HDX945WFK4DGM and the one I ordered is HDX945WFK4DGI. Heres is the CPU I ordered http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?...GHz-AM3-Retail Its still a 95w chip and thats all I though that I was looking for so I made sure not to get the 125w one but did not compaire the model numbers good enough I guess.

Will this CPU still work with no problems? Am I worrying over nothing or will I have to return it and get a different one?

If it will work fine you can get a pretty good deal on this one from SuperBiiz. With the coupon code of PILGRIM10 before Nov. 15 you can get one for shipped to your door for $125.
