Anyone think i should trade my CPU for a 9550? Should i expect any issues with this board? Should i expect to be able to OC it to 3ghz without a black edition chip? I know the old Phenoms dont OC well...

Stay away from the 9550.
Compared to yout current CPU a slow quad core CPU would be faster in certain highly parallell tasks and perhaps certain highly multithreaded games, but everything else would run slower.
A Phenom II or Athlon II would perform much better and run cooler than any 9550 would, even if you where very lucky and got a 9550 that overclocked well. Also, your mothertboard is not really suitable for overclocking power hungry CPUs.

Only very rarely. Few tasks saturate a x8 link, never mind a x16. Toms
did a study showing how various games/tasks varied with ever more
restricted speeds down to x1. The worst offender is MS FSX, because it's
very badly written (reloads data *constantly* even though it shouldn't
do). Most games/apps are barely any slower with x8 vs. x16, ditto for
SLI/CF.

No, the idea of increasing the PCIe clock slightly is to help with
stability, not performance as such.

Not when the task isn't even making use of the link running at normal
speed, so no.

Only for tasks that need to push it that much. Most don't. Deliberately
GPU-heavy tasks can do, but only because they're designed to do that.

Unigine may show this (I think I might be seeing this with my X58 system,
though it could be because my XEON chip has 50% faster QPI compared to
normal consumer i7s), but I guess the obvious way is if you're able to
change your board's PCIe speeds and thus can compare.

Absolutely not, BE edition or otherwise.

Yup, Ph2 was a vast improvement.

Installed crysis 2 along with all the dx11 updates. My display only supports 1440x900, but as such the system can run the game full on. The detail is much better than the original games. Quite impressive.

965BE c3 + M2N32 sli deluxe wifi
Hola estoy de nuevo por este lugar, el viernes voy acomprar el 965BE C3, y he hablado con muchos por mensaje privado, para no desvirtuar el post, pero he leido en el post que algunos usuarios rompieron / quemaron 1 o 2 nucleos de los 4 que trae un "phenomIIx4 965" or que el Windows XP o el W7 no reconocen los 4 nucleos, yo no quiero quemar nucleos (ninguno) y Quiero que windows reconosca los 4 nucleos.

Me pueden ayudar para hace una buena y correcta inatalacion, bien optimizada.

Por el momento no quiero hacer overclokin , solo quiero usar el 965be con velocidad de fabrica que es 3.4ghz y con el cooler de stock.
Pueden ayudarme en los pasos que hay que hacer, y con lo que hay que usar.

Solo se que tengo que tengo que cambiar el bios , ahora 1004 al 5002..pero como? y donde?.
Como hay que configurar el Bios, y como configurar todo en windows para que este optimizado.
Usando PMSRT o NVStool6.06?,
Por favor ayudenme el viernes voy a comprar y no quiero que no se pueda usar , se queme o no sea reconocido.
Solo quiero que funcione bien,,,por favor estoy por ir comprar. me ayudan?

Hello I'm back for this place, on Friday I 965BE We Buy the C3, and I've talked to many by private message, not detract from the post, but I read in the post that some people broke / burned 1 or 2 cores of the 4 that brings a "phenomIIx4 965" or the Windows XP or W7 not recognize 4 cores, I do not want to burn cores (none) and I want windows acknowledge the 4 cores.

Can you help me to make a good and proper inatalacion well optimized.

At the moment I do not want overclokin, I just want to use the factory 965be speed is 3.4GHz and the stock cooler.
Can you help me through the steps you need to do, and what to use.

Only I have to I have to change the bios, now 1004 to 5002 .. but how? and where?.
As you must configure the BIOS, and how to set everything in windows for this optimized.
Using PMSRT or NVStool6.06?,
Please help on Friday I do not want to buy and can not be used, to burn or not to be recognized.
I just want it to work well, please I'm about to go buy. help me?

Tengo miedo porque mi athlon64x2 3800+ llega a 61ºc porque el maximo es 71ºc, pero el maximo del "965BE C3" es "61ºc", Por momento solo voy a usar el cooler de stock.
Mas adelante comprare alguno mas.

Please see the spreadsheet on the first page of this thread,at the top you will see AM3 installation,click on that and follow the instructions.
(this guide is somewhat old so use the latest bios (5002) and gfx drivers)
The 5002 bios can be D/L'd from the top of spreadsheet also.

Good luck

What's difficult here is that he's saying he doesn't know how to flash BIOS, so this is going to take a bit more effort in addition to overcoming the language issue.

Well, BIOS-flashing is actually thoroughly covered in the manuals of M2N*boards.
