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

Thanks for the help.
I'm running 3.75GHz now on my 965, but I also have the FSB OC'd at 2GHz. I think I'm trading off some top end CPU speed to get the M2N32 running faster, but I think that's a good trade-off. The system is stable this way. With SLI enabled, I have yet to find any app this machine can't run.

You'll be a happier camper if you throw in a good SSD for a boot drive.

Has anyone tried 1066 or 1150Mhz sticks in this board and booted up fine?

I've thought about getting an SSD but they are just too pricey still and truthfully if I get one I'd rather just have one to act as my main drive and not seperate the boot drive from storage. I'm just pickey like that.

My board doesn't like FSB or RAM overclocks at all. I found that out officially when I first started SMP folding and couldn't get it to run stable at my normal settings. Ended up having to pump more voltage over stock to get 3.3 stable and needed 1.45v just to have 3.5ghz stable for folding.

So I'm definitely excited to see what I can do with this 965. At the very least I want to hit 3.8ghz. But either way I look at it I've got a cooler running chip and a free 400mhz boost. CPUZ actually registers it's TDP at 65W which I find kind of funny when this chip is supposed to be rated for 125W.

SLI does run great too. I used to have 8800GT's in SLI back in the days and recently got another 460. Gaming has been great, but I think since my drivers are a little outdated(still on 266.58) I'm missing some SLI profiles and performance boosts. If Nvidia would fix the damn drivers already I'd update them but I keep hearing all these problems people are having, even with the new 285.xx that were just released.

I've actually got a pair of 1066 in my mobo, but they are downclocked to 800mhz. The highest I've OC'd RAM on my board is to 880mhz.

The bsod says *** STOP: 0x000000A5 (if that helps at all)
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.

--------------------------------------------------------

I haven't put anything new on the pc since the bios/processor upgrade.
I did a little research on the internet and i found that some people say that its a bios problem.
Maybe is there a problem in the support of the 980?
Maybe did i flash the bios wrong?
I tried using ez flash 2, put the .bin bios file in C and tried updating bios from there but for some reason it wouldnt show any files.
I then formated a usb drive to fat32, put the bin file in and using ez flash 2 i located the file and updated bios.
Isnt that process ok?
What could i do?

Are you saving profile as boot.see post above yours.

1066 should work with AM2+/AM3 cpu's.

That is the right way.did you reset cmos after flashing?

Do you mean after puting the 5002, i need to reset the bios again using the jumper?
I dont think that is written in the instructions.. u think that might be what is causing me the problem?

I asked a friend who is good with computers, he told me to check that the: Legacy usb support is enabled,
check the ACPI and put from s1 to s3, or s3 to s1,
Try disabling raid,
If nothing works try reflashing Bios maybe something went wrong.

Also is it a problem that my TDP says 66W on cpuz? Shouldnt it be 125W?

I will try in some hours as im at work now, any ideas are welcomed.

I'm running the latest drivers and don't see any issues.

You must clear the CMOS. Be the master of your BIOS. Doing this will always ensure your hardware gets a fresh start if you make changes to the setup.

In my experience with this board, you want to disable legacy USB support if you have a newer keyboard. This usually one of the very first changes I make to default BIOS after clearing the CMOS.

Yes you need to reset using the jumper and remove battery.
That is SOP for flashing.
Reset bios to defaults(F5),save and exit(F10),shut down pc,remove power cord from psu,press power on button on case to drain power from board,remove battery,set cmos pins to 2-3 for 30 seconds,move jumper back to pins1-2,replace battery,boot to bios and press F5 and F10,on reboot enter bios and set your normal settings for the cpu you are using.

If that fails try using a lower multi(try 16 and 1.35v),see if that runs ok.
Don't forget to make the multi change to 16 in the NVtools also.

As for the cpu-z TDP reading it should read right once we get the other problems sorted.

Good luck

I did the steps just like you wrote but still its stuck on 66W. Is that a problem?
does it have to do with the S1 & S3?
