[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 791

post #7901 of 12343
I'd like to upgrade my current AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+, and I've got the M2N-SLI Deluxe.

Will HDX945WFGMBOX give me the most bang for my buck right now? I'm looking for something that's hassle-free to get up and running. I don't want to have to pull some crazy BIOS voodoo here!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've found the above for $135, and I'd like to not have to go above that price point if you're suggesting another chip.

Yes, that will work with out any voodoo.
Update your bios to 5001 with your 4200 before you switch cpu's.

Good luck

This would be neat. How will it run on our boards though? Will it cause the boards to melt down? Will our boards bottleneck the x6 chip so much that is would not be worth it "IMO"?

Hey everyone

i'm having a problem and i'm sure this is the best place on WWW to solve it

so.. i want to buy the NH-D14(noctua cooler) I've read that there is a compatibility issue with the m2n32 sli deluxe. That the fan is getting on top of the pci-e slot.

Does anyone know if i could just turn the cooler from upside-down to left-right or any other solution? I've noticed some of us here are using this cooler.

A friend bought me a Bitfenix Colossus case as a present and i wanted to fit that one there
thanks in advance guys

Good points, but I will watch the experiment to see results just the same.

On the ASUS forums, there were some strong opinions stated that a 125W 965BE would be power starved too, and yet my experience and those of others proves otherwise. My dealings with the 965BE was fun I have to say. and I understand why people strive to OC.

I also recognize that this board is 4+ years old and that to get more overall throughput from a PC will need more current technology. I will probably stay in the AMD family, assuming they do the right thing with Bulldozer.

AMD has been good to me w/every build. I'll stick w/them as long as they put out good quality, speed, reliability, Green & economic solutions.

So you think the x4 is the right choice? But among the 965, 970 and 975 which would you choose? considering the resources that difference of 100 Mhz is little or make a difference in overclocking?

Looking at the board and looking at the cooler it's going to be close.
You could always put the outside fan at the top as pull.
Can you measure the distance from the center of the cpu to the pci-e x16 slot?
You'll need approx 3 inches,and that will put the fan pretty tight to the gfx card.
Here is a link to the specs http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=p...4&lng=en&set=1

Good luck

The x4 is your best bet,you'll get just as much from a 965 as you will from a 975,for less money.

I can see that happening

Regarding cpu choices. Heck I'd even venture to say you would be better off saving a few bucks and just getting the Ph II X4 955 BE (C3) like the one in my sig.
