I had a similar problem but dowloaded the direct x update and it fixed it. Hope this helps.

Oh and anther thing it helps if you run you updates as frequent as possible for this kind of stuff. New games come out and the drivers and files from M$ have to be updated to keep up with the games. So do your updates
On the ASUS forum (link: here) there are sooooo many threads on this issue. You will need to go back a bit because the problem was corrected late 2006 or early 2007 or so. The soundmax drivers on the CD that came with the board are terrible! So there are updates posted everywhere. I have no idea what driver I'm using right now (I'm at work at the moment and my M2N32-SLI is at home), but everything seems to work for me. I could look into it if you want.

Hey all,

I want to upgrade my videocard in the near future from a 7900GT/GTO. I was wondering what you all would recommend for use in my M2N32-SLI deluxe board. Maybe a strange question for this forum when you look at it first hand but I am half expecting my motherboard to become the limiting factor in this, since there is no PCIe2.0 and such.

Specifications wanted:
- single card (no SLI in the future).
- silent
- good performance increase from my 7900GTO card (overclocked to the max)
- Not too expensive (<150 € ~ 150$)

I do not play First person shooters, but I do play C&C3, WC3, RA3, Sacred2 and in the near future I want to be able to play Starcraft2 and Diablo3. in C&C3 with a lot of units my videocard holds me down. So I want te be prepared.

At the moment I am looking at the following cards:
- Saphire 4830
- XFX 9800GTX+
- Saphire 4850

Obviously the first is cheaper and cooler but slower than the last two, but has better bang for buck, on the other hand the nvidia card has physx and the 4850 is just a lovely card.

What will the verdict be in relationship to the M2N32-SLI deluxe and in combination with my Athlon X2 6000+ and the tagan 480W power supply. I only use a 1280 x 1024 resolution monitor but maybe my next upgrade will be a 24" wide screen monitor with a higher resolution.

Secondly:
Do you know of Graphic card coolers for the videocards I am looking at that make less noise and cool better than the stock coolers, or (even better) graphic cards from these series that come with silent coolers but remain affordable.

What do you all think?

- Super

RagingInferno: But you had it stable at 3.5 correct? Why aren't you running at that speed? You run at 3.0? Is this your primiary system? Sorry so many questions, just a tad nervous about the upgrade to a Phenom II on this board, just trying to cover some bases. BUT either way I will most likely give it a try!...lol.
It better not kill my board! lol

Yeah I am running it at stock speeds at 3.0 usually and it is my primary system. Why am I not running it at 3.5? Meh... I dunno... Actually I usually run it at 1.0 because most of the time it sits there idling or downloading. And since cool and quiet doesn't seem to work I have to control that myself. But when I need it for the gaming, I ramp it up to 3.0. 3.5 when I want the extra kick.

I dunno, I guess I am used to undervolting laptops, power and heat conservation. It's weird switch to the other side and cranking everything up to to the max. So I try not to over do it. Nothing is really stopping me from going to 3.5 all the time I just choose not to.

Also heat bothers me a little bit. It's tops off at about 55C at 3.5 on load so its not over doing it but it just seems odd that our board will run them warmer than other board officially supporting. It's too bad I don't have anyone else to compare it to with this board. I would like to know if it naturally does this or did I install my cooler wrong. So if I run it at 1.0, it idles at 40C. Nicer number

Can't seem to get the link to work...

See you are going with a X3 PII. Seems many are going to the 720. Why would the 720 be a better choice for this board than the 940 other than price of course?


QUOTE=TheFoister;5645476]Hey guys,

I've read many reviews about PhenomIIs but the below one seems different. There are some interesting results taken on AM2 boards. Have a look if you're thinking to upgrade to PhII.

I see...understood! I suppose I would look at running at 3.5 (or best o/c I can). I do understand though, I would not want to burn up my board! Would be nice to have some numbers to compare to, temp wise!

Exactly! This board rocks! We don't want it to die out too soon we need to keep it alive as long as possible! I would like to keep this board and CPU for at least another 2 years (with a possible video card update). I just don't have the money like I used to upgrade so easily. Got to keep a budget in mind.

Get the this chip and join me!
Then I can compare my temps with yours

ADA6000CZBOX is windsor (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD...000CZBOX).html)
I don't think there exists an 6000+ BE.

ahhh a nice link thanks. But its not going to tell me which is best in the windsor vs. Brisbane question
Its just i've found a pretty decent deal on a 6000+ windsor and was wondering it its better than the BE model.
