Cool. This is what we want to set to 1.3V, yes?

Ok, so let's recap the current bidding.

The goal again is to push the M2N32 up to 300MHz or higher. ATM, I can get her up to about 264MHz. To get this working, I've backed the DRAM down to 400MHz, so the FSB to DRAM ratio is 1:1. I've set the HT multiplier to 4X, and the HT bus speed is 1056MHz. For the purposes of this experiment, I've put the CPU to 13x running at 3.4GHz. The NB frequency is 2112.

It's unfortunate that NCPL doesn't support the M2N32 better, even if it were just to display the additional motherboard voltages.

The barrier I'm hitting is when I try to set HTref to 270. It's just not happening. I can accept the fact that maybe this board can't go beyond this value. But I want to make sure I've done these OC attempts correctly and haven't overlooked anything simple or obvious.

Thanks guys for your interest in this experiment and for all the help you've tended.

Back off the cpu multi to x10 to underclock the cpu a little more and try again.
Yes,cpu-nb ht volts to 1.3v.

Good luck

Okay, it's worth a try. Hopefully tomorrow.

If you don't mind, please comment on the memory config in my system info, just updated. Specifically in the DRAM section. Do you have any concerns about running 4GB in the first bank and 1GB in the second bank. Is that a bad idea or is it a don't care. The Corsair memory in particular isn't anything special, but because we were underclocking it, I didn't think this would come into play in stressing the M2N32.

There are 2 other PCI cards on the board, a USB 2.0 card and a Hauppauge TV Tuner card. I believe in the past it was said these wouldn't matter during OC runs.

I'm hoping that luck is not involved.

Thx

I always try to run a matched pair of ram for maximum system stablility. Mixed density ram modules could pose stability issues and make your IMC not run as smoothly.

I may have tried this already, but it's easy enough to pull the smaller modules. It would be odd that the IMC would have trouble switching between banks, but perhaps the specs of the modules themselves are different enough.

OBTW, I didn't increase the NB -> SB voltage. Someone had said this was unnecessary.

For completeness, I'm going to consolidate all the BIOS settings I'm changing to run the test and will post them. This way if anyone sees something that needs correction, it will be easier to do.

Thx,

Are both sets of ram 800?
Your other pci cards will not affect ocing at all.

Yes, there is no need to touch the nb-sb volts.

sorry if this has already been covered, but i have an m2n-sli deluxe running a 940 BE. does anyone know a temp monitor that works? real temp doesnt work as the processor comes up as unknown, so real temp says its an unsupported processor.

anyone know anyway for me to monitor temps in windows

thanks

I just ran a quick test It failed as usual at HTref = 272. This one was a little different in that if gave a clean BSOD.

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, STOP: 0X0000003B, fileinfo.sys

I'm only running the 4GB of Corsair memory. HT multi @ 4x. CPU -> MCP55 @1.3V. CPU clocks were set at 10x.
