Got my cpu and cooler today, worked around 6hours to get it working, almost peed my pants, sine at start it didnt worked, double checked my connections and voila, found my mistake, rerouted cables, and it worked like a charm. Had some minor problems like others before me, 800Mhz thing, did everything as in tutorial and now proud owner of PH II x4 955 works like a charm

Hey guys, i want to try and upgrade my pc too as my x2 5800 is getting old
I have a m2n 32 sli deluxe and im either looking for a x4 980 or an x4 965.

a) As the price difference isnt very big, is it worth the difference in power or is the barely visible?
b) Do they both overclock well? Or maybe is the 980 a overclocked 965 so i could just get the 965 and overclock it?
c) Are all 980s and 965s black editions or do i need to check that what i buy is really a black edition?
d) On the sites that i check to buy it, every site says am3 support, are there different versions of those cpus that some support am3 only and others support am2 and am3?
e) Is it sure that the 980 is supported by the m2n 32 sli deluxe? As on the first page i only see users having up to 955 i believe.

Thanks and sorry if some questions are retarded

The only difference of the 955 and up is CPU speed. If I had to guess, I would say that all the CPU's where made at the same time and the 980's just ran better at higher clocks and the 955's ran better at lower clocks.

As far as my setup, I am running my 955 at 3.68 very stable @ 1.4875v.

hey guys i've got a computer I built in 06 that was pretty awesome using a M2N32 SLI Deluxe and now trying to refresh it to play some of the newer games.

I've already added 8gb of ram due to having a bad ram stick when i got it out of storage. along with that i added 4 new Antec 120mm Tri-cool fans as some were not working. now i'm ready to upgrade the GPU and CPU and hopefully call it good.

currently looking at a GTX460 1gb for GPU and a Phenom II of some sorts for CPU. will i have any problems installing a Phenom II CPU? I'd like to get something i can just plop in and not worry about and my budget for the CPU is $100. i see a few options in that price range:


Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition for $82.99
Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition for $87.99
Phenom II X4 840 for 89.99
Phenom II X4 925 for $89.99
Phenom II X4 955 for 109.99

Not sure which are "plug and play" and what would be best for the money?

please let me know what you think about my plan and critique as necessary as I haven't built or messed with a desktop since 2006!

Make sure you're running the latest BIOS. They can be a little buggy in some cases, there's some info about that in the first post in this thread.

I just picked up an M2N32-SLI Deluxe, and I'm going to be looking at a 965 BE for mine next payday. I did some price checking, and it looks like you can pick one up for $120-$130. If you looked through the compatibility list, somebody managed to get one running at 4GHz.
