Yes that's the one hi-lited in the pic.
They can knock 5-10c off the NB temps.
Since you are running an H70 and have lost the airflow from the cpu cooler that would normally blow over the heatsink,it will help alot.
Plug it in the chipset fan header and it'll throttle with NB temps.

Why have a kick-a$$ board to only oc the cpu?

There lots of benefits to oc'ing by reference clock, which is what you will need to do to oc the NB.

The refclock increases/oc's the cpu freq,HT freq,NB freq and Ram freq.

Here is a guide you should read http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html to learn the basics.

We'll be here if you have ?'s


Good luck

Hi Guys. I'm really glad I found this club. I built a computer maybe 5 years ago using an m2n32 ws pro. My graphics card broke (geforce 7850gx2) and I replaced it with a MSI GTX460 Hawk Talon Attack, and it got me to thinking about upgraded other components. Ideally I would want to build a new rig, but money is tight. I was hoping I could get some more time out of the current one, but I'm unsure of what is supported. This thread is really long, and from what I've gathered most of the info doesn't apply to the WS Pro model. Could someone tell me the best processor the board can support? What bios would I need? Would the bios update allow it to support more than 8gigs of ram or faster ram? Where can I find a Win 7 driver that will supply e-sata support? Since I upgraded OS's it hasn't worked. I apologize if this was covered else ware, or if these seem like dumb questions. Thanks in advance.

Welcome,

You will need bios version 2001.(see spreadsheet on first page for D/L link)
You can run up to PhII x4 970 (with some help from NVtools-see first page for D/L link)
or up to PhII x4 945 or any AthlonII without the tools.
Any AM2+ or AM3 cpu will give you the option to run 1066 ram(one dimm per channel,if all 4 slots are filled with 1066 it will drop to 800).
8gb ram total will still be max.
You may need to update the Nvidia chipset drivers for e-sata support(see first page for D/L link)

The only dumb question is the one not asked

Good luck

Thank you very much. That was really helpful. Going on what you said about filling the dimm slots, would it be a better to get two, 4 gig sticks as opposed to four, 2 gig sticks? I'm assuming I am still limited to ddr2, correct? Thanks again.
post #8556 of 12343
Either 2x2gb/4gb total of 1066 @ 1066 or 2 sets of 2x2gb/8gb total of 1066 that will run at 800 but have headroom for oc or 2 sets of 2x2gb/8gb total 800 @ 800.
And yes DDR2 only.
I'm not sure if these boards support 4gb sticks.

There is some history in this club to which I do not hold the key to investigate intirely and tell you exactly who founded this club. It could be in the thread some where and if you feel like digging then knock your self out. Hint it'd be in the first few posts of the club.
No, it's not that critical, but as the current owner, feel free write a blurb on the history as it suits you. Anyone new coming here will see you as the originator/owner of the thread.

I know this is going to sound like an odd question, but can someone post pics of this setup. I don't have the optional fan, but if there are better ways to handle cooling certain aspects of the M2N32, I'd like to address that.
