MK you can keep the CPU set to a static voltage in the BIOS no need to set it on Auto.

You can also use the second sqrl fan on the mobo to keep things nice-n-cool on the board.

You may also use the 5002 bios on your board.

Hope this helps.

P.S. I don't know if there is a decent moded bios that will allow for the use of the AM3 Thubians yet.

?

i think i got myself in a little to deep but i've come too far to throw in the towel now. so pride can take a back seat.

hoping the screen shot posted properly, and i'm sorry i must seem like a pain. it seems that nvidia system tools doesn't recognise the mobo?

i tried installing and re-installing and i found a screen shot of the drop down menu for selecting the multiplier but i can't get system tools to display it??

you guys have been a great help.

you guys have been a great help and really appreciate the support

however. i can't get nvtools to recognise the motherboard, this problem seems strange to me.

multiplier 16x and i'm getting cpu-z to read 1.344v. i had to go well over 1.30v in bios though, pretty sure it's 1.475

I had this problem when i was setting this up about 6 months ago where the selectors for the multi's were locked. You have to disable CnC, and C1E in the BIOS first...... Then in windows, you have to set your power management settings in the control panel to Maximum performance.. After I re-booted, i was able to move my multiplier in ntools. I remember before i started OC'ing, i had the voltage set to 1.3 in the BIOS.

Hope this helps.

Off subject. Well I'm going to be doing a fresh install in a few days since I ordered a new SSD and will be going though setting up the whole profile thing again. I think i already know the answer to my question but gonna ask it.. Does the M2N32 support AHCI mode in the BIOS? I cannot find any solid information if this board supports it.

Well, the Phenom II 965 came today. After using the AM3 guide as an outline, I dropped it in the socket, drove around looking for a PS/2 keyboard, and now I'm fully booted and running all 4 cores at 3.429 GHz. So far everything has been like butter, but I'll need a few days to really work it in. All I've had the chance to play so far is Starcraft II, but I'm going to throw Black Ops at it tomorrow and see what's up.

Here's a link to my validation, my RAM is pretty missmashed right now but I'm picking up a new 4Gb kit this week to get my channelling back on track.

the M2N32-sli(590/silicon image sata controller) does not support AHCI, but the M2N-sli deluxe does.(570/Jmicron sata controller)

Congrats.

A better gfx card might be in order too:

Good luck

I'll definitely be upgrading my Graphics card come October for Battlefield 3. I've been eyeing the GTX 560 Ti Hawk but I've still got a summer budget to contend with, so fall seems like a good time to get serious about it again. And a lot can happen in a few months.

Tonight will be my real tests with the Phenom, I'll be testing out Black Ops and Bad Company 2. Bad Company hasn't been taxing my GPU much, keeping it at about 50% and only using half my graphics memory, so we'll see if the new CPU opens things up for me. I only just got Black Ops and ran through the first mission so it'll be a little tougher to compare, but I'm pretty sure it was also being bottle-necked by my old 7750, so we'll see how that turns out too.

Hey all,

I'm new to the forums, and eager to upgrade, then OC my computer.

I currently playing Aion, and my current specs are not lasting for pvp.

I flashed my bios to 5001 and was recommended these for upgrades. I am planning to overhaul my system in about 2 years.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX


G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ

and one of these two video cards

XFX HD-677X-ZNLC Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

or

SAPPHIRE 100328L Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

What's your guys thoughts?

Welcome TheProph3t,

If you get an x4 955 I would recommend you get an Nvidia gfx card for ease of use with the nv tools required to run the x4 955. see first page of this thread for all the info.
You may want to think about a 2x2gb kit of ram to keep up also.

Good luck

Gyro
