White Hawk, chances are that your mobo will run with even higher cpu, but indeed the only validated till now is the 945.Anyway the 945 is fine too. And i'm sure you'll be able to overclock it a bit too. 5-10% at least is always doable
Agreed. The 945 should be a very capable processor. It's too bad a 940 wasn't available (unlocked multiplier), but the 945 is still great!

@White Hawk,

"M2N-SLI BIOS 1103
Fix it may take much time to boot with ATI Radeon 5850"

You only need 1103 if you have an ati 5850.
They just used a lower version number.

If you plan any ocing at all,I would put some sinks on the mosets first just to be safe.

Good luck

bah, all that writing before made me bypass something.

phenom II 945 is AM3.
phenom II 940 is AM2+

if i was on your shoes, i would eat my shoes lol I mean why would 945 work and 955 wouldn't :-/ i bet all these people just wouldn't risk it.
on the other hand the difference between those is small, and you leave some bucks for that gpu also.
Get that cpu up and running and you will see a new level of speed on your pc ^^
Don't think too much about it mate

but i must admit i did think a lot about it heheh

Thanks again for the tips. I am definitely looking into heat sinks for the main board. The chip set on this ageing board does tend to get rather warm, and no amount of cable management can facilitate adequate airflow for sink-less components.

I'm lumped with the 945 now, for better or for worse, and I'm looking forward to getting it installed.

You were absolutely right about the BIOS - for some reason, I ended up at a page with just the most recent BIOS release (one entry). Having looked again, the 5001 BIOS now sits directly beneath it in the full history list. Apple-oggies for the confusion.

I always perform a power-down clearance of CMOS after a BIOS update. I don't like to rely on the soft options in the flasher or the BIOS configuration screens alone. A battery-pull and re-configuration of the BIOS is one of the first steps I take in troubleshooting dead boards at work.
_____

I should point out that due to random occurrences of the 101 clock_watchdog ("interrupt not received on secondary processor") error with this CPU, I've been running this CPU slightly under-clocked since shortly after the build. Running the CPU just a tiny fraction under 3200MHz completely eradicated the issue, but seriously knocked my confidence in the board/CPU combination. After many weeks of experimentation and elimination (particularly of the graphics cards and RAM), and failing to find any faults even under serious stress testing, I just pinned it down to the hardware combination, nuances in the component quality/specifications, and bad luck.

Of course, it doesn't help that I'm running the widely-hated and untrusted Vista64 (which has also been blamed for manifesting the interrupt error). No, windows 7 was not an option when I built this, and it would have been pointless having all the DX10 hardware without the OS to drive it (Vista). I have been putting off upgrading to Win7 for monetary reasons and because I just have not got the time completely re-build my OS (my system is occupying a good 300GB on a .5TB drive with applications alone, though I would probably trim it down a bit on a rebuild).

I suspect that I might be dicing with the same issue again on the new CPU. It might even be worse, or even unusable, due to an otherwise difficult to detect fault with the board. Alternatively, it could be that I've had a 6400+ with one faulty core all along, and the new CPU will play nicely enough to bump it up a notch. I might even think about getting Win7 as a birthday present to myself before the end of the winter.

Everything else on this board overclocks nicely (had to in order to keep everything running at spec with the CPU throttled) and the graphics cards perform admirably even with the interface crippled. If I end up throttling the Phenom II X4, I'm still expecting considerable improvements over the Athlon64 X2 in most applications (ie- games that are quad-core optimised).

Sorry for all the waffle.

White Hawk, i went from a 5200+ x2 to my 940be, and even if i under clock my 940 to 2.0ghz it is still a huge difference. the extra two cores help open applications and programs much faster, and even if a game is not optimized for a quad it will still most of the time use all 4 cores and increase performance.

I wish you luck on your setup, and hope you like the change as much as i have.

Mhmh i have big big big question...where i can found AHCI voice in bios?
I dont find! Is enable from default?

Im using F60 now
thx
post #7547 of 12343
My logic when it came to my recent upgrade from the X2 6400+ to the PII X4 940 was to get equal gaming performance (overclocking the 940BE to 3.2GHz) and improving productivity performance with the two additional cores for only about $20 (sold the 6400+ on eBay for $75 and bought the 940 for $95). Haven't noticed a difference at all yet, but I know it's there.

Does anyone know why the 955, 965 and 970 heat up above normal on these boards (M2N *)? A friend of mine owns the M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 with CPU 965 and the temperatures are not high, it has a stock cooler and the temperature is around 44 º c.
ps: This CPU for example, fed the same voltage, should not present the same temperature?

The 590 chipset does not have the AHCI option.It has a Silicon Image Sata controller.
The 570 chipset does have the AHCI option.It has a JMicron JMB363 Sata controller.
