Did everything that was written on the guide but i still have 2 small problems.

First is that even though ive set up the userdflt.nsu to run on startup and put the multiplier on 16x, it again just is on 4x and i need to set it up each time again.
Am i missing something?

Second is that even though i have a 980be, the cores when on 16x are stuck on 3214.46MHz. What could be the cause of this?
The only strange thing i see in cpuz is that the Max TDP is 66W
First, congrats on the new cpu.

Go into bios and set cpu multi to 18.5 and cpu volts to 1.4v(as shown by cpu-z) then go back into nvcp/perf and set each core to 18.5 multi(with windows power options set to performance),Click apply and it will adjust your CPU clock speeds, now save profile, save the profile as BOOT – on the performance tab there is another option called profile policies click on that, then click on the second window WHEN THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET, select “The system first starts windows†then click load profile and choose the boot profile, click apply.

Hopefully that gets you up to speed.

Good luck

Hey all. Has anyone had the problem where nVidia control panel just WON'T load the desired profile at startup? Even though I have it set to do so in policies, it won't seem to do it.

Hey guys thanks alot for the help
I guess i just saw on the example that it was set to 16x and i though without thinking that i should put 16 too hehe

I got this other problem now, sometimes when i start the pc, the Asus logo at the start stays for a longer time (and if i press del to go into bios nothing happens)
After a while it goes on and when it starts loading windows, i get a bsod.
The bsod says *** STOP: 0x000000A5 (if that helps at all)

I then have to restart, put and old keyboard (instead of the wireless one), get passed a windows recovery that never ends, and then restart again for it to load normally.
Then again when i restart it happens again.

What could this be?

EDIT: Also a strange thing, i ran unigine benchmark before with the x2 5800 and i got a score of 754. Now with the 980 i get 758, shouldnt it be a bigger difference?

Would it be worth getting a new battery and clearing CMOS again? Is it possible that may help things?

By chance is there any sort of guide out for setting windows 7 up for ssd using old mobos? If I remember reading correctly we can't use features like trim and whatnot due to not having ACHI on our mobos. Most of the guides I've found don't really apply.

Thanks again for any help you can provide. Will be running Vista on the old drive again once power comes back.
The drive is really plug 'n play. You're right that AHCI is not available to us. When you do migrate to a newer board that has AHCI, I do recommend using it as I've seen before and after difference and it is quite substantial.

As for Trim, I was under the impression this is more of an OS level thing that runs in the background in Windows 7. Windows 7 is the first OS to provide true native SSD support and that's what you want. In any event, I'm guessing that drive has its own built in garbage collection (GC) to take care of clearing up erased and available blocks for future writes. IF that's not the case, you will eventually see degraded performance until a complete erase is performed. This was the case on older drives, but should not be a problem with newer ones.

Sorry about that bad weather.

Cheers.

Just got my 965 in the mail today. Time to tear off the Xiggy for the first time in over 2 years. e.e

This should be fun.

Does anyone happen to know all of the post numbers that explain in detail the problems/issues/how to's of tweaking NCP when installing an AM3 CPU on an M2N board? I've read John's post but the main thing I'm cautious about is those options not showing up for me. I don't know if this is because I have a 940 in right now and these options become available when the 965 is in? Or if it is because of my BIOS options right now are mostly set on manual. When I first load up NCP the options are there but quickly disappear and the rest are disabled.

EDIT: Well apparently I don't even need system tools for my 965. The BIOS recognized it right away and Windows installed the drivers and found all 4 cores but it is downclocked right now with x4 multi. However the options in NCP are still disabled so I have no way to tweak my CPU right now. Any ideas?

CPUZ shows it at 800mhz as does Everest Ultimate. System shows it at 3.4ghz and so does NCP. lol..

Is your Power Plan set to High Performance in Power Options? This is located in Windoze control panel.

I'm going to assume your BIOS is at 5002 level.

Do you have a USB drive plugged into your machine. Possibly an iPod or such? I've seen cases when those are attached during either a cold start or a reboot the machine has issues.

As for keyboard issues, I use a logitech wireless setup too, but the receiver has a USB to PS/2 adapter for the purple connector. I believe I disable support for USB Legacy devices to help the keyboard to work properly.

No I had not changed my power plan, but it is set now and 5002 isn't for the SLI Deluxe. Highest compatible BIOS is 5001 which is what I have installed.

Should I leave voltage/multi auto in BIOS? I'm pretty sure multi was manual set for however high we wanted to adjust in NCP later on. Other than those 2 I haven't messed with anything else.

EDIT: After changing the power plan I was able to tweak the Cores individually and set the multi. But still no voltage change. I'm giong to set it back to auto in BIOS and reboot.

2ND EDIT: PC didn't like that at all. I changed the voltage to auto and bumped the multi to 20 assuming it would only raise the ceiling from which I can change it in the NCP performance settings and I got a BSOD while Windows was loading the desktop.

Then I reboot, it starts loading windows again and suddenly my Steam/Trillian accounts forgot my logins and my computer freezes. REBOOT AGAIN.

So I changed the **** back to 1.35v and 17 multi.

yes, 5001 for you. Glad you can set the clocks now.

NCP doesn't care about voltages. You have to set that manually in BIOS if you use NCP. What problem(s) are you having. Testing for Vcore is simple. After you set the value and commit it to CMOS, you can reboot back into BIOS and use the built-in monitor to see what value is set. Then within Windows 7, you can use CPUZ or even Nvidia System Tools to validate the setting, but frankly once you set it in BIOS, that value shouldn't change unless you use something like PMT that has the ability to directly manipulate the machine state registers (MSR).

Alright, that's nice to know then. I guess I shouldn't complain too much if it tried loading 4ghz on auto voltage. It didn't like something about that. Anyways I set it back to what it was before and things are fine now.

I guess I overread what all NCP has control over so now I know where to start with the OC stress testing. It's nice to have 3.4ghz on 1.35v stock. I needed 1.42v for 3.3ghz SMP stable on my 940.

If I can get 3.8ghz stable I'll be a happy man.

Thanks for the help.
