With a 965, even at 4GHz, you're likely going to be CPU bottlenecked trying to get
the most out of two 480s. Do you have any links to example 3DMark06 results?

Got a weird problem guys.. ever since I reseated my stock HSF, the computer will not cold boot.

I have to hold down the power switch/hit reset and let the computer turn off and the second try it turns on fine with no problems.

Any idea what this could be? I have halt on errors turned to None.



Been having bad luck too as a few years ago one of the network ports on my M2N32 shorted out due to a thunderstorm I believe. Now just yesterday I turn on the computer and Windows 7 keeps sitting at "Unidentified Network" on the second NIC. Imaged my drive, and reinstalled windows and still the same problem. Its not the router as all other wired/wireless computers work fine. Time to start using the wireless NIC on the mobo.

Try setting the ram down to 667,and see what happens.
You didn't by chance pull the cpu partly out of the socket when reseating the cooler?
If that fails reset the cmos.
Sometimes these cold boots problems will work themselves out all on there own,after a few boots.Just all of a sudden one day it may boot fine and work ok from then on.

Good luck

So, what is the solution to the bottleneck of the CPU with two 480’s?

How is the bottleneck affecting the performance of the two 480’s? FPS?

Seems to me that once the program is running, the GPU's take it from the CPU and offload the resource, rite?

Maybe there is more involved, like, the motherboard bandwidth or bus speeds?

I am thinking out loud here, help me out guys....

I was hoping to stretch this M2N32 out as long as possible...maybe till next year....with Battlefield 3 on the way the only solution would be to upgrade the motherboard, but I don’t want to do that because I would be waiting for one from EVGA, with the lifetime warranty associated with the boards, unless ASUS gets their act together.....with new boards for p67 and chips....

Ah.. now I know why Asus recommends clearing the CMOS between bios flashes. Clearing it resolved my boot issue, and also made my network port functional again which was stuck on "identifying network" (even between fresh OS installs). Thanks for the suggestion. I should of thought of that one first

Can't wait for my Zalman to get here so I can cool my little Phenom down now. This thread has been a huge help. Appreciate everyones contributions. M2N32 is one of the best boards I have had for longevity.

glad you could be helped. i am actuly thinking of selling mine and adding a bit of money towards a ddr3 board with sli.

Glad that got it sorted for you.

Wait for the AMD 9XX chipset,it will support Xfire and SLI.
And because Nvidia is no longer making Mb chipsets.

Ya, I am getting 18K on 3DMARK06 with the 2 480 sli and 965 at 3.4, just a mild overclock on the GPU's with 65c and 40c on the cpu. with the H70. a great start prior to overclocking the CPU, allot of headroom, this weekend I will prepair for a push to the cpu's 3.8 mark and share the findings......

The best news is that in BC2 I am getting 110FPS , this justifies getting the 120Hz monitor, just need to squeese a little more FPS to capitalize the remaning FPS....

Right now i have my northbridge at 1920 overclock of 240x16.5 3960. my ram sucks so i cant overclock it i have divider 667 get me back to 800 speed. Should i try to lower the divider and get a higher nb because my ram sucks i would have to go 300x13 or 13.5 to give me 2400 nb. Is this possible on this board or even worth trying

I say give it shot. I know most M2N32 boards are very capable of 300 FSB. Maybe you can loosen up your RAM timings a bit to say 5-5-5-15 2T or even 5-5-5-18 or maybe even 6-6-6-18. and don't forget to give your NB-v a bump and keep your HT ref clock as close to 1000MHz as possible using the multi's.

Good Luck,

N2G
