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'm zalman fan, but no for cpu cooler; I had a 9700 and imho was not enought for my cpu. I don't like 9900, if u want a zalman buy 9900MAX. The last 9900

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.

HDX945WFK4DGM
HDX945WFK4DGI

Change the stepping but are both 95w
Check datasheet of amd

So if its just the stepping, do you think it will work fine? Does anybody here run a Phenom II X4 945 95w "C2" in a M2N32 SLI Deluxe board?

Thank you. I have to give a huge thank you and credit where it is due. Every one in this club has a lot to do w/the success of it's growth & lately Gyro has been helping me out quite a bit. The club roster would be much bigger by now if I was keeping up w/every request. I just don't have the same passion and drive to keep the list up to date like I use to.

I don't take the time any more to update the club roster and that is where Gyro has been helping out. Thank you Gyro.

So if any one is interested in managing this club I welcome your PM's to further discuss the details. Gyro has been helping me out quite a bit but he may or may not be able to continue helping as he has voiced concers to me about this a while ago.

I think I will always have a M2N32 SLI Deluxe Wifi mobo in my aresenal and will always be involved in this club in one way or another as long as I have a working mobo. These boards are just to awesome to give up on especially when considering they are still very capeable of competing w/hardware that is 3-5 years newer.

Ok, I see now that the only difference between the supported 945 chip and the one I ordered is the stepping, but heres the question I need answered... If a Phenom II X4 945 95w with C3 stepping is supported by the M2N32-SLI Deluxe board, will the C2 stepping version of the same chip work also?

Please some one give me some reassurance that this will work.

A couple members have C2 and C3,95w and 125w on M2N-sli deluxe, so either
should work for you.See the data sheet on the first page.

It worked good for my old dual core but I don;t think its enough for this processor. I'm looking at getting the Venomous X black. Do you have it installed with all your memory banks full and what are your load temps like?

I decided to go for the 125W Phenom II X4 965 instead of the 970 as there is too much price difference for a measly 100Mhz between the chips.

The 125W is supported on the M2N32-Sli deluxe right -EDIT- It seems it is supported, i checked the 1st page..lol ( Part Number: HDZ965FBGMBOX) ?

This is the air cooler i bought for my cpu and its rated the best air cooler on the market (still till this day!)



The Noctua NH-D14

N.B the cooler IS MASSIVE!!

I had 4 sticks of DHX, but was too height for venomous, so I have changed 2 sticks and now I have 2 geil without heatsink and 2 DHX.


Temps?
4ghz: Idle: 34° C, Full 50° C
3ghz: Idle: 28° C, Full 43° C
Room: 21-22° C

I have 35C right now with open FF, filezilla, thunderbird and other apps

NH-D14 is good cooler, BUT with venomous-x u will have the same temp if use good fans with high static pressure.

just posting to say hello and to say i have officially joined the ranks. i was in the process of building a HTPC with some old pc parts. i started to research what i had to see if it was even worth it. to my surprise the motherboard i have (m2n sli deluxe) supported some new processors with just a simple bios update.

so i ordered a PII x4 940 BE for 99 bucks + shipping and installed it yesterday. cleared the cmos to get it to boot, and it runs perfectly. this box will no longer be built for HTPC use. it will replace my weekend gaming rig that i use when i go back home for the weekends (an e8400.) will most likely make the e8400 the HTPC and put my 8800 GTX SLI setup into the new box im building

ill be sure to post up any questions that i may have, sorry in advance if i ask something thats already been posted, cant believe how big this thread is!
