Well, we can chalk the USB/PS2 adapter as a failure. Had to grab an actual PS/2 keyboard from work to get to the bios and set the multiplier and such. However, once into the windows desktop, my USB keyboard worked fine. I just have both plugged in. Not sure if it's necessary. I'll find out later.

You guys mentioned using BIOS version 5502. Did you mean 5002 Beta? I can't find 5502 on the Asus website.

Thanks

5502 must have been a typo: 5002 is the correct version. :-)

I didn't realize at first you were talking about a keyboard. For me, I am able to use a USB keyboard with the adapter plugged into the PS2 port. The discrete arrow keys don't work on my Logitech keyboard, but the ones in the num pad do. And yes I'm running 5002, but I don't know if that's what matters. Some BIOS have a specific switch to enable use of USB keyboard, but I don't recall that in our board.

Once you get going with the 965BE, there are a number of common problems found immediately. Go back and reread the past 6 or 7 pages in this forum. The good news is that you are already here.

Ok,
So bios 5002 worked like a charm and I've been working on getting my PH II X4 965 clock speed dialed in. I've go it up to 4.122 GHz (20.0 x 206), but to get it that high I've got to have my VCOR pushed up to 1.5V to keep Prime95 from failing on one of the cores. Running Prime95 brought my 100% load temp up to 67 degrees before I stopped the test.

You all think the temp is a little high? Or am I being paranoid?

Sorry I can't/didn't answer your question, but I've got a question for you.

Once you updated the bios to 5002 did you have any problems or did your pc boot right up?

Hello, reading through all these posts has been super helpful. Decided i had to make an account to ask a question since you all seem way too smart.

I am using an M2N-E motherboard.

In this link...

http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/M2N-E.html

It shows a 965 BE as usable. Does it seem logical that most everything in this post would apply to my M2N-E as well?

Also i'm confused now at all the different BIOS versions. Would anyone know which BIOS version I should use for the M2N-E? It says 5001 in the chart in that link i posted, but the installation guide says 2209.

Also would I really need to buy an aftermarket cooler if I don't plan to overclock for some time? Already a massive upgrade as is.

Thanks for any help.

Booted right up. I had gone from version 1402 to 2209, then was told here that 5002 would be best now. I didn't start having problems until I started messing with the multiplier and FSB. Still working on the over clocking.

From what I found, the Instal guide is slightly dated, so if you have a newer bios version available, you will probably be able to use that. You could do what I did and update to 2209, find that it works and try 5001 after that.

As for the cooler, if you are not going to do any overclocking, you will be fine, as long as you don't mind having a less than cool looking chunk of metal in your case.

The temps are consistent with what I saw. A recent post said to keep it under 60C. Frankly that is a major challenge for me with the stock cooler. Most of my work is at about 50% duty cycle and temps typically don't exceed 54C.
