Well, where do we go from here? everything is maxed out! Can someone list all the primary variable items to check/adjust to MAX out a overclock on the M2N32, My hope is to hit 4GHz....soon.....
The watercooling is the best thing I have done so far along with the 1033 RAM...

Oh well ive since ordered a new one that will support it and then it'll be all good i hope

But, as requested ive attached a SS of CPU-Z
It's stable as a rock at 11x but underclocked as ya know.

And in regard to when it crashes, it does one of the following;
when i change the multiplier past what it "cant" handle, 12x + it black screens and reboots.
Or, it does a blue screen memory dump, followed by a reboot.

Hope thats what you wanted to know and thanks for the help!
I'll post with my new mobo (sadly not a M2N) once ive set it up.

Well this really sucks!! I have been sitting on my 955BE for a couple months (Don’t ask), and was getting close to having time to install it and start seeing what I could squeeze out of my board.

Returning it (processor) is out of the question, so I'm not sure what I should do. I’ve searched all over for a more technical explanation on the 95w vs 125w motherboards, trying to figure out the architecture that determines what the board can handle. Specifically I was trying to find out what components on the motherboard would need to be upgraded to handle more power.

My research pretty much says that without having the knowledge, experience and tools to build a motherboard it is not easy to modify one in the way I am looking to. This is not to say I am unwilling to try, because that would be an awesome modification to figure out and present to the community!!!

In the event that I can't re-engineer the board, I’m not sure what I should do. At this point I would just like to get the processor in my board, for it is better than what I already have even if I cannot overclock it like on the deluxe model. I am worried though that it will eventually melt something.

If I do find out some more information on increasing the power handling ability of this motherboard I will post my results, but in the meantime…

Should I use the proc in my motherboard and not push it all the way, or save it for when I get my Sabertooth 990 and grab the 945 for my M2N in the meantime. Or just grab whatever I can from my current system and upgrade the whole PC. (I wanted to OC this board for fun though so building a new system is really a last resort)

I really want to mod the M2N to handle 125w but……that’s looking less and less viable the more I learn.

Any opinions or suggestions welcome!!

Thanks,
The Laboratory

i think it should run the 125w just fine. just don't overclock it so your not to far out of spec. the 955 will blow your 6kx2 out of the water, and will be a big difference.

i have ordered a m4a89td-pro!!! along with 8Gb dual channel corsair vengeance *-*

Dont worry, the M2N32 will still be working in a secondary rig, either for music recording or a media server (don't know anything about servers yet, so idk if it works as one at all or not...) o/

Hey everyone, im new to changing parts on pc, but i want to give a try.
I wanted to buy new pc before but i saw that M2N SLI Deluxes, can now add AM3 cpu wich made me reconsider. But now i dnt knw wich cpu to get. I had in my mind Phenom II X4 980BE with adding 8GB ram (Kingston DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz 4GB CL5 (Kit of 2 - 2GB)) but i searched around the forum alot and didnt see anyone with this setup, most had setup like 955 BE and 965 BE, i knw they supposedly be similar? and needs to be tweaked to get it work, but is there any working system with 980 BE or is there any difference between them? only multipliers? and do i need more coolers and new psu? since my current one sucks a lot >.>

Have tried all the tips (as I understand them), but still cannot figure out how the devil I change the multiplier. The NVidia tools only show information, I cannot find any way to use them to change the multiplier as stated in previous posts.

Have changed voltage and multiplier settings in BIOS - guess I missed something?

ok, REALLY confused, now.

Found a comment on another board to be sure to turn off the 'cool 'n quiet' function. So, ok.... *click*

Looked at the voltages again - looks ok... rebooted....

and Windows reports AMD Phenom II 955 at 3.96 Ghz....
The (useless?) Nvidia reports same speed.

And this is where it gets weird (for me)
CPUID and AIDA64 both report 880 Mhz (220 x4)

Say... wha'....?!?

Sometimes that happens. U have to go to Power Options in the Control Panel and chose the High Performance settings so that nTools will allow you to change the multiplier in the software.


PS: the M4A89td-Pro arrived with the Corsair Vengeance stick and it is AMAZING!!! So many features, everything is just beautiful!! *-* (now will have to wait a little and buy some 2Tb hard drives, and a BluRay drive. The BR will go in the main rig, and HD in the M2N32 rig, along with the DVD drive that i have now. After all that, a new PSU, thinking of Corsair HX750 )

They are the same cpu,with increasing multi's.
Just get a x4 955 and oc.
You will need an aftermarket cooler and possibly a psu.(what brand of psu is it?)

Do you have the performance part of the Nvtools installed?
Do you have windows power options set to performance?
You should have it look like the pic below,with the core & multi not greyed out.
