The 940BE AM2+ was literally a drop in and boot up affair. It booted up immediately to 3GHz without me doing anything. I then adjusted the multipliers in BIOS to 3.2GHz.

The nvidia control panel provides semi-automatic control of system performance. By contrast with my old X2 4200, CnQ was able to control the system power consumption in a reasonable way, very similar to what Intel is touting with its I7 architecture. Nominally the CPU would run at around 1GHz in idle mode and under load would ramp up to 2.2GHz. This setup was never cooled effectively and I saw temp spikes over 70 C when running CPU intensive applications, but it was reliable.

With the 125W 965BE in my system with stock cooler, it boots up with 4x clocks running at 800MHz. Vc = 1.36V. The cores run at about 39.5 C with no load. Fan speed is reasonable but noticeable. I've also had to resort to laying the case on its side with side panel removed to allow heat to escape the M2N32 more easily. It does make a difference.

When applying the 17x multiplier profile, overall coreclock speed is 3434MHz and the core temp is about 42.5 C with no load. Fan speed is again noticeable but reasonable.

Under 50% load, I'm seeing about 51.5 C running WinTV. Adding MP3 to iPod audiobook Conversion raised temp to about 54.0 C.

Running Prime95 in-place large FFT peaked at about 62 C when all 4 cores were at 100%. The small FFT test produced the greatest stress of 63 degrees C at 4500 RPM fan speed.

Allowing the system to idle now, it seems to have leveled off at 44 C @ 3500 RPM.

The 965BE set me back about 126USD as an upgrade (check eBay), and considering how quickly things become obsolete, it is a testament to the M2N32 for its staying power.

I've been experimenting with some different settings to reduce power and noise. Was looking into exploiting the Nvidia control panel profiling capability and realized I had lost ability to set CPU. I had forgotten that I had set the Win7 power plan to Balanced, which effectively disabled the CPU settings. The power plan must be set to High Performance in order for the Control Panel to be fully functional.

Just posting this here to hopefully safe time to others in case a senior moment happens.

the nvtools are only needed for the x4 955/965/970 cpu's.
As Xyxyll said all others should plug and play.

Good luck

I've been trying to get it clear whether it is possible to operate the Phenom II X4 945 125W on MSN32-SLI Deluxe (having right now BIOS v.2205) by just having the correct BIOS settings?

I have crawled throught the previous posts too but I need the final decision. My intention is not to overclock the CPU but only use it by the AMD specs.

Just got the CPU and runs only at 803 MHz.

Thanks in advance!

Tony,

ASUS only supports the 95w version of the 945 with 5002 BIOS. There is hope for you to get your 945 working properly

From what I understand, to get any Phenom II 125w working (with the exception of the 940) your going to have to use Nvidia System tools method to get your chip out of the 800 MHz mode

You can find Hitoriko&Bigjohn's AM3 installation Guide on the first page

Basically your going to have to set up a profile to set your multipliers and load them when windows loads. I found that overwriting the default profile in Ntools with my vaules makes windows load with them each time. Make sure you set your power profile in windows to Performance and AI tuning in the BIOS to manual so you can set the multi''s in Ntools.

Tony, I just went through this process literally a few days ago.

From my personal experience I'm running BIOS 5002. The upgrade is quick and painless.

Make sure the BIOS sets CPU to a high enough multiplier. Bump the core voltage up to about 1.33V. Turn off any power management settings like AMD Live, CnQ, and C1E.

In Windows, make sure the power management profile is set to high performance. This step is crucial.

Install this: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia_...ools_6.06.html

In Nvidia Control Panel > Performance > Device Settings, CPU tab, you should see Core Multiplier settings available. Set the knobs for your CPU. and the multiplier value for each core is all I touched. The highest multiplier value available is what you set in BIOS. Save the profile to a new name. Then move to the Profile Policies window and set a rule to apply the new profile on startup. Works like a champ.

You can use CPU-Z or Nvidia System Monitor to verify results. I'm also running Core Temp gadget to keep an eye on temps, but frankly this seems to run quite well at rated speed. (i.e. no OC) Since I have time off now, I will experiment a little to push the system a bit harder, but I may need to upgrade the power supply first.

Cheers,
Carl

Thank You both Agent Kenshin and Carl

I managed to create the profile with 15x multiplier for each core and have it loaded with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate system startup.

I also switched back to newest BIOS version 5002, yesterday I thought that the problems derived from that version and wanted to try that older one.

In BIOS CPU Frequency is 200 MHz and the CPU Voltage is that 1.3375 V like You Carl asked me to do, was that the right place?

How about with the CPU to NB HT Voltage (HyperTransport right?), do I need to change something in there or elsewhere?

Guess I can manage with this and hope that ASUS would support also this 125W 945 CPU as well.

Again Thank You a lot - from Northern Europe where there is +2 ft (~60 cm) of snow around my place.

Good that I found this site, next to update my user profile specs to a good level.

Tony,
Finland

Your CPU settings look fine. The only time you would want to increase the bus speed from 200 would be if you are going to overclock since the 945 is not a black edition with a unlocked multi The HT link is fine at 5x but you might have to move that down to 4x depending how much overclocking you plan to do. I remember from my 6400+ did not like the HT link above 1050 MHz and was able to OC more out of it with the HT link at 4x.
