I was just hoping he can relay my desire for a CPU-Z if and when it works.

I'm not sure on this but I'm thinking the power regulations on the M2N SLI Deluxe won't be able to handle the wattage requirements of the x6 but keep in mind I've been wrong b4.

Friends, I'm one step closer to update my bios, since I compared the code with the original 5002, there was actually part of the code amendment. But I'm waiting for an answer because I was on-site www.bios-mods.com and posted a few points which I think is important before making this decision. I asked about increasing consumption, but still had no answer, it really worries me, but we have several users using 955, 965 and 970 with the same TDP.

ok, but what do you think of M2N32SLI? can support the consumer?

Well to be honest the mobo is designed to handle 125w cpu's w/the 8+2 Phase PWM so as long as you/we don't overclock the x6 to much we should technically be able to handle the x6 CPU's

@N2Gaming i am running the 940BE overclocked on my m2n-sli deluxe, and sli, i dont have any problems with the board getting hot at all, and my vcore is nice and stable, how ever i have the vcore 100mv thing enabled as well.

Well I'm not insisting that it will not work. My theory is that it could cause the VRM's to burn out from to much power draw on them from 6 cores. 4 125w overclocked cores is not going to draw as much power as 6 overclocked 125w cores. I have seen several threads and post's about AM3 boards that have native support for X6 CPU's become bricked/Fried from overclocking the x6 CPU's even though they can run the cpu's just fine w/used w/o an overclock.

However, I do not expect the M2N-SLI Deluxe to overclock nearly as well as its nForce 590 SLI partner. There would be little point to ASUS adding expensive features such as an 8-power phase to a motherboard using a mid-range (cheaper) chipset. This being the case, ASUS has not included this feature in their nForce 570 SLI motherboard.

&

Finally, if you do consider yourself as an overclocker or plan on doing some overclocking, the nForce 590 SLI is a must!

ahhh ok i see. yeah, i didnt think about the extra 2 cores drawing more power as well. good point..

edit: tonight i flashed my 9800gt eco to stock 9800gt clocks and gave it 1.05v to help with the higher clocks. i did notice my mb temps have jumped about 3 deg from the extra power draw, and the card is running 10-12 deg c hotter as well. still way below thermal max so its cool, but i am kind of worried about the extra draw in power through the pci-e socket.

I wonder if the extra mobo heat is from the extra heat comming off of your GPU. I know when I use some GPU's that run hotter and vent the heat inwards towards the chips on my mobo the mobo runs a lot hotter than when I run cooler cards that vent their heat out the back or elsewhere rather than over the mobo chipsets. I can see how an increase in the voltage on your 9800GT would increase the heat on the GPU. Question. Does your GPU have a PCIe power plug on it or does it draw all it's power from the PCIe slot ???

I have a question. It would be cool to do, but if you actually get the x6 working, would you actually continue to use it in this board? Don't get me wrong, the board is a beast, but it's pretty outdated in the way CPU-RAM linkage.

GOOD questions. I just PM'd him to ask about his GPU cooler, and I forgot I could read his system stats!! LOL oh man, it's been so long that I have reached newb status again. He NEEDS to get a decent GPU cooler. I recently did a nice mod on an Accelero, seen here.
