Thanks for the quick reply, Dale. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with 5001 because I want to put an AM3 chip in there. I just got her past POST and Vista is now loading. I ended up pulling the CMOS battery on a hunch, so I guess that's what did it.

It flashed something about no drives detected that I wasn't able to read in time, so I might still have a few hurdles.

.
I could never get EZ flash to pick up my old key-drive correctly. I have always had good luck with the award flash utility that's on ASUS's website. Basically you will need to make your key-drive bootable to run the awdflash.exe or you can do it though a good ole floppy drive.

Thanks for posting this, and nicely done.

Is anyone with a C3 processor able to duplicate this setup?

Just wanted to post a thnx to all, especially dr swizz, gr8sho, serial chiller, and gyro...
all your posts were an infinite wealth of overclocking goodness...
finally finished my big re-build (new haf case, p2945 95 w and archon cooler with 7 on a new tb hd - ram and an ssd are next!)
Overclocking my old phenom i got up to 2.4 ghz on stock cooling from the 1.1 it was running on the old bios- and dragged my futuremark up to 1100 points- with a disturbing bottleneck
bottleneck's gone now- 11060 futuremark ;-)

Thanks again, all!


PS- forgot to mention- running ambient as low as 23 degrees, 27 after 24hrs and highest peak 42 (celcius) down from 50s at idle with gtx260sli at 80 and 90 degrees, respectively (36 and 41 ATM) - a whole new world!

well i messed up this morning.. decided to push my m2n-sli deluxe hard. temps are cold atm, so i thought why not. i increased my chipset and related voltages almost to there max. booted into windows with my normal clocks to see how things would stable. all went nice and cool, nothing got hot.

so i got into bios, dropped my cpu multi to 5x @1.385 vcore, ram to 400mhz, ht to 2x with 8x in and out. then i started increasing the bus speed by 10. then i would boot into windows and run linx.

well when i hit 350 bus speed i saved and restarted like normal, my post screen came up all garbled and colorful. i had to completely reset bios buy taking the battery out and changing the jumper. i finally got it working again, but it killed my win 7 install, so now i am reinstalling it. everything seems to be running fine again, install is going ok so i don't think i messed anything up other than file corrupting. if i did i will post back later after all is done.

Alright, I knew it wasn't going to be this easy this morning. The 945 came today and I went to put it into my M2N-SLI Deluxe.

Problem is, the new heatsink/fan clip has a hook on both sides while the motherboard only has a little knib for it to clip onto on one side. The old heatsink fan clip had one hook only.

Is it acceptable to use the old heatsink/fan on this new chip, or do I need to go out and buy one? I was going to try to refit the old clip onto the new heatsink, but the construction of it is such that it won't fit.

The old heatsink/fan in question is the one that came with the AMD Athlon 64 4200+.

Edit: On further inspection, the second clip on the motherboard is actually broken. Didn't break when I took out the old CPU today, because there is no piece anywhere to be seen. I guess they sell these black plastic harnesses seperately?

well i realy would not recommend running your 125w cpu on an 4200+ cooler. the newer stock coolers can keep them decent. i would suggest buying a new one that will fit your motherboard. dont want to risk cooking a new cpu.

I'm pretty sure the X4 945 is a 95W, but I see your point. I'm going to replace the plastic harness anyway since it's got a broken clip. Is the stock cooler quiet at least? Or am I better of just buying an aftermarket one?

Edit: http://www.onhop.ca/product/10859929...enom-ii-x4-945

That's the model I have now.

You will need to replace the holddown bracket.
Do you live near any pc shops? They might have an old AM2 board that is junk and might sell/let you have the bracket.

I've called a few places and they said they might have one, but I'll have to bring my old bracket in to check it out. They want anywhere from 10-20 bucks for it.

I figure I'm better off buying a new heatsink/fan if that's the case, if the stock one isn't fantastic. Any recommendations for aftermarket ones?

I'm assuming they come with a bracket?
