[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 888

post #8871 of 12343
Hello all!

Found this thread after searching for info on the M2N32 SLI Deluxe (wifi) which recently came into my possession. Mucho information which I've found extremely useful so many thanks to those who've already shared their experiences and knowledge on this great mobo.

I'm looking at installing a phenom II x4 940be given I won't have to faff around with NVtools etc. and am interested to hear how people have got on overclocking this CPU?

I'd ideally like to slap on a Noctua NH-C14 cooler and crank things up but was wondering how far I can really expect to take the processor?

I'm a 'post n00b' OC'er and have previously taken an old s939 x2 3800 to 2.5ghz from stock. Any thoughts on particular quirks to look out for on the board would be very much appreciated!

Also in terms of Win7.....given the driver set is quite old is there anything I should look out for? I've read on this thread for example that the vista audio driver package will do the job in terms of the Soundmax Audio, any other things I need to be aware of?

Many thanks up fron for any advice offered.

First go here http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem and fill it the best you can.
Then go to the first page of this thread and look through the data sheet for M2N32-sli's running 940's, click on the validation link to see setups.
Then go here http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html and read it through.
What bios version are you running?
The 940 should be pretty much plug and play.
Remember to reset bios to defaults(F5)before installing new cpu and reset cmos after cpu install and before first boot.
You may or may not need a ps/2 keyboard also if you have problems with a usb KB.(only for bios,usb works in windows)

Good luck

So you want it to run at 800 or 1066?

Wait Gyro, maybe I have written wrong.
I havent now DDR2 for this MB, I wanna buy but spend less of possible..so 533mhz is the way..my question is: 533mhz can be read?
post #8875 of 12343
Yes it can be read.
400, 533, 667, 800,1066(am2+/am3 only) will all work.

You should be able to find some cheap 800.

Gyro, many thanks for the reply. Filled in what I can and will look into the OC material tonight. For info I've flashed to the latest BIOS (5002) without issue and will reset to defaults etc. once I install the CPU. I'll let you know how I get on once its in and running.

Thanks again!

Question for anyone, with the M2N-SLI Deluxe mobo I know it supports 8GB of RAM but what's the max each slot can support? 2 or 4gb? I want to upgrade to 8gb from 4gb but I would rather get 2x4GB sticks if possible instead of filling up all 4 slots.

If 2gb is the max supported per slot what are the side effects or negatives of having all 4 slots filled? My CPU is overclocked but the FSB/memory is not. Just multiplier.

I don't no what to tell on that one.
But I could swear I've seen someone in the club running 2x4gb sticks.
I did a quick search but found nothing.
If you are that someone please step up.
If you do go with 4x2gb 800mhz and plan to run them at stock then there should not be any problems.

Well I just found my old mobo manual and it looks like 2gb is the max per slot. It makes sense considering 8gb is the max. Guess I'll start hunting for another pair of OCZ... however I doubt I'll be lucky enough to locate the same model.
