"setup your bios manualy as:
-set multiplier X16
-voltage 1.3V
disable:
-C&Q
-C1E
-AsusLive
F10 Save an reboot."

Use Nvidia power tools to adjust settings, correct?
Yes,the x4 940 will work without the Nvtools.

For the x4 955 to work you need to ;
1-install NVtools before installing new cpu(just so it's there when new cpu is installed)
2-reset bios to defaults(F5,then F10)
3-shut down pc
4-install new cpu then reset cmos.(remove power cord,remove battery,move cmos jumper to pins 2-3 for 1 minute,replace battery,replace jumper to pins 1-2,plug in power cord,boot to bios),set AI tuning to manual,set cpu multi to x16,set cpu volts to 1.35v,disable C&Q,C1E,press F10(save and exit),let it boot to windows,go to NVtools and set cpu multi to x16,make sure you set all four cores(see pic below),then set windows power options to performance,you should now be running at 3.2.

Do I do this in windows or start up?

Bios flashing is another question. What's the best way to do it? I was thinking usb stick through bios?

You reset to defaults from the bios.

Just reboot,enter bios(delete),press F5 then save and exit F10.

Make sure to format the usb drive to fat32 before putting the bios file on it.

Then to flash, plug in usb drive with the bios file,reboot,go to tools tab,start ez-flash,it should auto find and hilite the drive with the bios,then press enter,then say yes to flash and the bios will flash and reboot,enter bios again and set your settings and your good to go.


Good luck

Quick update on the new 940be install. Did as advised and reset BIOS to defaults then slapped in the 940be. I installed the Scythe Infinity cooler with dual Noctua fans I had on the old s939 3800, booted into BIOS just to check everything out, USB keyboard worked fine!

PC probe II showing 40 degrees at idle, so I've cranked the multiplier up in steps to x18 and getting 55 degrees on load with Prime95. I am now the proud owner of 3.6Ghz quad core monster!!

Many thanks again Gyro for the advice. One last Q, How do I post up a validated CPU-Z??

Cheers,

Sinister.

Good stuff.

Open cpu-z,hit validate,in the window that pops up just hit ok then when the validation page comes up copy and paste the link(hilited in pic) either to your post or put it in your sig,and it will look like this.



Good luck

OK I'm a bit put of buying a 955BE, thinking about the Athlon X4 640/645 are there any issues that you get with the 955Be? Or is just 1. bios update 2.plug and play 3.finish?

You should have no issues with that cpu,it does not need the NVtools to work.
You can use as high as the x4 945(95w) without the tools.
So yes just flash bios (using my previous instructions) install new cpu,reset cmos,and you are good to go.
