My current Setup is:

AMD 945 X4 Overclocked to 3.3 ATM (Using AI OC in BIOS to 10%)
8gb Corsair XMS2 5-5-5-18 (800mhz)
2 EVGA Gtx 460's Superclocked 768mb in SLI

Using a Zalman 9700 for CPU cooler.

Tried Overclocking Before Got it to 3.6 upping the voltage and fsb a bit. But did not run stable when running a stress test.
Welcome.

There are some guides on page 1 of this thread you might want to look at.

First, I'm assuming you're running the 5002 BIOS level.

Second, I believe the recommended method to overclock is to go Manual mode. This way you can control all key parameters like cpu multi, HTref, and such independently. Is your 945 a BE?

You're going to have to raise Vcore to get the higher CPU speed.

Do I need to set Vcore voltage to automatic in BIOS to make this work?
If anyone can do an experiment or confirm they can change the Northbridge voltage from within Windows 7 using a 9X5 C3 processor, I would greatly appreciate it. Preferably on an M2N32 board.

Thanks,

Hmm sounds like you are not having much luck w/that. I have never tried it because I have not had tok, sorry I can't help much.

Yes 5002. And no I do not have a black edition 945. 95w one. Im a noob in overclocking. Just been trying to get better at setting th right settings.

Nope. Based on reading earlier posts on this topic, I was led to believe that the dual voltage regulators were controllable from within the operating system. I've read this in more than one place. But I couldn't tell in some of those posts if an AM2 board like the M2N32 was able to be handled with those tools. I can see it successfully handle processor speed switching, and that by itself is handy, but it doesn't do much in the way of allowing the CPU for instance to throttle down completely and then run at a cooler temp. I might try turning on C1E support in BIOS to see if that helps the tools control the voltages.

If you have any other ideas, bring them on.

Given that backdrop, please take the time to read the overclocking guide referenced on page 1. I don't think that there is a simple silver bullet you can apply to get to an end result without some experimentation to find where your bottlenecks are.

Having said that, I don't think it's unreasonable to hit 3.6GHz with your 945 if you have the right voltages applied, and you have adequate cooling. Also, you will enjoy your M2N32 more if you can get the board itself overclocked and say drive the FSB higher. You will see the computer to be snappier and bring the whole system to a new level of overall performance.

i must warn of one thing though.. i have the zalman 9700 as well, and you can hit 3.6ghz and it will cool, but keep the vcore down as much as you can.. the zalman will cool good, but it is actuly close to not being enough when you start hitting 1.4v..

So I couldn't hold out any longer... and don't expect the 3rd gen ssd's to come down in price anytime soon (1$/gig). So I just took a plunge into the SSD market (120G vertex 2). Will be getting it this week to install and test out.

On another note, anyone try out any of those usb3/sata3 PCIE add-on cards to bring the m2n32sli mb up to date with the upcoming latest tech?


In particular this one:
Asus u3s6 - brings in usb3 and sata3

I know the asus site shows these models as being compatible.. but this forum has already proven what the asus site indicates isn't set in stone.

I want to upgrade my CPU. Which CPU currently on the market would be my best bet. I know the M2N SLI is an old board, but I think its worth one more upgrade. I listed memory as DDR3, is was a typo, it is DDR2. My system info was updated. Any ideas out there for the CPU?
