I wasnt referring to speed of the video card (pci-e), but to the known problem that when you put a phenom cpu on a m2n32-sli motherboard, that the core speed of each core is stuck to 800Mhz instead of .eg 3,7Ghz for the 980BE.

I read in the first page that a nvidia video card is needed and not an ati (or at least it wasnt testing with an ati).
Can i still use ntune tools without having a nvidia card in order to fix the multiplyer to 16x?

I have the 980be in its case and not sure if i should open it yet.

Thanks again for your help

With the one caveat I don't have a 980BE but rather a 965BE, these two should be equivalent for all intents and purposes. The instructions you are reading must be obsolete because I used an ATI X1900GT to get my processor working and it never had any problems or caused any problems.

Don't think of the cores as stuck at 800, but rather that the BIOS doesn't provide any native support for this processor to automatically detect and set the voltages and multiplier. The cores themselves are unlocked and any number of programs can manipulate these settings. It just so happens that Nvidia System Tools are a bit more temperamental because they insist on Windows power management set to high performance before exposing the multiplier settings. Whereas PhenonMsrTweaker can set the CPU multiplier straight away along with the voltages as I mentioned to you earlier.

Question.. back when I was OC'ing my new Quad with this board there was talk about as long as AMD keeps making chips with 125 Watt rating, there will always be a chance to make it work with this board.. well the FX-8170P 8 core is gonna be rated at 125 Watts.. what do you guys think?

Hmm good idea, but I don't think so. If I were going to get a BD CPU, I'd want to get a good mobo to go with it!

Thats what I would do also but for ****s and giggles.. It might be possible

I just picked up my new Saphire 6950 2 Gb.. gonan put it in today... still running this board.. unfortunately its the version that doesnt unlock.. but I can OC the **** out of it which will be almost the same thing

While wattage is important, that's not the overriding reason for the situation of being capped at 4 cores support on this board due to BIOS limitations.

There was talk at one point of someone trying a custom BIOS to see if 6 cores could be made to work, but I don't know if that ever panned out.

Hi all I looked at most of this site for my answer have not found it so here is my question, I bought the m2n SLI Mb from a friend of mind with Gkill DDR 2 800 MHz and 2.8 GHz, Rev. C2, 95W, Socket AM3, Quad-Core, HDX925WFK4DGI. I am getting a AMD Processor model unknown I have beta bios 1804 I wanted to know if I could fix unknown issue with any other bios?

It looks like you have an M2N-sli deluxe,1804 bios is for those running 5xxx series ATI gfx cards(slow boot).
It should be the same as 5001 with the ATI fix.

Did you reset cmos by moving the jumper after installing the 925?
If cmos clear does not fix the problem try bios 5001,remember to reset cmos after flashing.

Good luck

Hi. I asked this once, got an answer from Fryer, and now I'm asking again.

I want to SLI this board before I retire it. I have an EVGA GTX 460 SE as you can see in sig. I'm waiting for Newegg to make this available for sale again so I can get another, but in the mean time they have a refurb of a non SE EVGA GTX 460 card that is virtually identical to mine but with some minor speed and processor cores differences.

This would not work, right?

The dust is because the big ventilator on the cpu 24hs a day.... but when the PC was clean i had the same problem of shutting down.

The psu i changed for a huntkey 450w and it keeps shutting down, so i managed to exclude some problem in psu...

There are 3 140mm fans... one in the front getting fresh air... on on the up back like and exaustor (getting the air out of the case) and one in the top also working to get the air out..... making a continuous air flow when the case is closed (and also an FAN 100mm on the case lateral cover getting the air out).

I'm really thinking that my processor have some problem... i will try to get my olf Athlon X2 64 4400+ and put again on the system to see of it get the same problem.... if no, so the problem is the CPU + MOBO...

Because i don't know what more i can use.... There is some app to monitore EVERYTHING on PC? Like all temperatures and all voltages and mantain a log?

Maybe i could get it on 24hs and see in the log what happened that my pc shutted off....
I think I would try a good 650 watt power supply. When you tried the 450 watt I don't think that would have worked as a goo test the power supply or if you have a good power supply tester one that puts a load on it to test the 600 one.
Good luck and God Bless Johnny65++
