Well the Kingston Hyperx 4Gig@1033Mhz worked fine for me, little faster and prob the fastest you can go unless anyone thinks the 1600 ram will work? the guy at the FRY's said it would....any thoughts????

1066 is the highest that will work(AM2+/AM3 cpu only),but can be oc'd from there via refclock.
Any higher is DDR3 and will not fit/work.

And the guy at fry's is

Thx for the info I hear also that the silicon image controller is a bit slower then the Jmicron that's on the 570 MCP. Hopefully I should be installing this in a couple days and after I get it all tweaked up, I will post some crystal disk results.

The ref clock is basically your HT bus speed.... It's that slider in ntools that you can move from roughly 200Mhz... and then you take this number and multiply this by your multiplier to get your CPU speed (ex 220*17.5 = 3.8Ghz) I have not really played with my ref clock but I really should since AMD systems can benefit more from this versus purely setting the multiplier on your Black Edition CPU. There's plenty of good phenom OC guides here on OCN

Read this guide http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html

Just use Prime 95(blend test)instead of orthos.

note;reference clock is called cpu freqency in your bios.

Good day guys my first post on this site
i have a few questions about my m2n sli deluxe
i am planning on upgrading from my athlon 64 x2, i see there are extra steps you need to for the phenoms 955 and 965 to work

q1 does the phenom ii x4 920, 940, 945, need these work arounds via the nvtools

q2 i want to buy 4 gig(2x 2gb) of ddr2 1066 memory will this work on first boot and will it operate in dual channel mode

q3 will i get ps2/usb keyboards problems in the bios if i use the 920-945 processors

4 will i still be able to sli 2 gtx 465 cards

thank you

Welcome liteon6x,

A1-No.only the 955/65/70/75/80 need the nvtools.But you should update bios to version 5001.

A2-Yes and yes.But you will have to set speed,timings and voltage manually.

A3-no you should not.

A4-yes, depending on the psu you have.


Good luck

Just wanted to say hi to my fellow M2N owners. I came across this board today while I was researching a new build. I had no idea that a BIOS update gave us the capability to add a quad core CPU.

I just ordered a Phenom IIx4 945 processor to help prolong the life of my aging system and hope to swap it out later this week.
