got my 956BE running fine now getting past the post screen, unfortunatly i have absolutly no idea how it got solved O.o

There's still another Problem I have with my M2N SLI deluxe mobo.

Since I'm running Windows 7 on it, there's no specific driver for my onboard soundcard. It's impossible to enjoy 5.1 sound atm. Now, I know it has nothing to do with overclocking or so, but since it' concerns the mobo...has anyone an idea on how to solve this problem or which compatible driver I could install to get my 5.1 running again?

Thx in advance

Virlidi

right click on the volume in the right side of task bar. click sounds. right click on your audo device and select configure speakers. it will go up to 5.1 with no problems at all.

enough PCIe slots, or the slot spacing wasn't very good, or the price was
kinda high. I also kept thinking about how I'd been burned with the M2N32
WS Pro (no BIOS update for Ph2, and I can't use the hacks/mods posted here
as I'd lose PCIX functionality). I did look at Gigabyte which was a bit better,
but in the end I went Asrock and bought a P55 board (the P55 Deluxe); only
75 UKP, 3 x PCIe, much better slot spacing, and runs like a monster (i7 870
@ 4270MHz, two EVGA GTX 460 1GB FTW SLI, 60GB SSD, etc.).

I still use my M2N32 setup, and indeed will be benchmarking it soon with
a GTX 460, but IMO ASUS dropped the ball somewhat. The M4N98TD EVO
btw is a typical example - not enough PCIe slots and too expensive for
what one gets (for me that is; not everyone needs so many slots. )

Some day I hope to find a way of upgrading my M2N32 to Ph2. If i can then
I'll fit it with an SSD aswell, that would be sweet.

Ian.

PS. Here are my benchmark pages so far; I'll be adding M2N32 results with
GTX460s over the next few weeks:

reseat your ram, and vid cards, could be they are not making good enough contact.

On the M4N98TD. I do find it odd that the memory has been reoriented to sit right in front of the CPU, so that air blowing in that direction will pickup the heat dissipated from the RAM onto the CPU. I guess that's not a major issue?

Most of my older P4 machines had 5 PCI slots. On some of them, all the slots were used. I understand this problem.

With the newer stuff, I was forced to a more minimalist approach. I can see that the form factor having to accommodate 2 of 3 different types of slots forces different decisions. Because of the transition to the M2N32, I've already swallowed that pill, and so the M4N98TD poses no additional issue on that front.

About your last sentence. I too agree that an SSD should be a good step and is on my todo list.

Cheers,
Carl

nope. the memory is fine there. the m2n-sli deluxe is the same was. the cpu fan blows through the cpu and out the sides then over the ram, so it actually helps keep the ram cooler.

Have you visited the Asus forum lately? Some Polish guy has made a modded BIOS
that appears to have all features you needed. Here is a link, scroll down towards the end of this page:

I have not seen any of these out in the wild yet. It's based on the deneb core like the 970 which some people including myself have them working just fine in our boards. I see no reason why these should not work in our boards

The retail price of the 975 is around $195usd. If you're looking to save 40 to 50 bucks, I would just grab a 965 and just OC it

Besides having the highest native clock, he has no power to overclock higher? I'm in a doubt to upgrade my CPU, the AMD is not helping, in a short time has already launched two new CPU (970 and 975) and also studied the possibility of placing an X6 (bios-mods, the staff is very close to this update ).
