[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 949

post #9481 of 12343
Anyone tried to run a Phenom II X4 960T BE (95W) on a 3 phase M2N-E mobo? Not sure it works since the 960T is built with Thuban cores instead of Deneb like the 955BE for example (I know some people run the 955 BE on their M2N-E but I'm afraid my version of that mobo (3 phase) won't run it!!!). My best shot would have been the AMD Phenom II X4 945 but it seems it's no more available! I might have to get an Athlon with no L3 cache frown.gif

Thanks in advance smile.gif

We had a discussion about that a couple of weeks ago and the thoughts were that it would not work.

The x4 830(95w) has 6mb L3 cache. [URL]=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103993][/URL]


Good luck

I cam from the 939 era and therefore it was basically BE chips were few and far between beyond a FX that wasn't affordable. I basically just set the divider down and hit the FSB (HT) till it BSOD'ed then bumped up the voltage a notch and tried again. The rinse and repeat and find a sweet spot and test is for stability.

In your example, everything goes up together, northbridge and CPU.

To think of it in sort of a reverse way, with unlocked cores, you can keep the reference clock where it's at and just set the CPU clock. For example, the stock speed of the M2N32 is 200MHz. With a 965BE which is rated by default as 3.4GHz, you will set the clocks for the CPU to 17x (17 x 200). This way you don't deal with the FSB or any other issues to achieve the CPU speed, other than making sure you feed enough voltage to it.

What I did here was to set the reference clock to 254 MHz, dropped the HT multiplier to 4X, and run the CPU with a 15.5 multiplier. I also had to push the Northbridge voltage up to 1.35V, and core voltage is around 1.392V. Keep in mind the Deneb processors are rated up to 1.5V.

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't consider the 830 because of the 2.8Ghz clock but now that you mention it, this may be my best alternative! Thanks again.

I just got 3 ASUS M2N-SLI's the other day from my friend

seems like this is a very robust board, happy to hear it supports Phenom II

Glad to see this forum is so active! I've had it saved in my bookmarks for awhile now.

M2N-SLI Deluxe, just upgraded to BIOS 5001 instead of the other more recent BIOS so it would read my Phenom 555BE.

Problem:
CPU-Z only reads 1 core. I was having this problem before it detected the CPU as well. I read there was some nVidia Control Panel trick I could possibly use, but I'm not sure if it applies. Also, I got a new Radeon 6870, and I'd rather not use my current lesser 8800 GTS.

What can I do so it will read 2 cores instead of just 1?

I would not run anything over 95w on those boards.

What cpu did you upgrade from?
Did you set bios to defaults before and after flashing?

I did clear the CMOS by removing the battery after I flashed the BIOS. The previous CPU I had was a single core.

Would not resetting it prior to the update cause this? How likely is that?

When you cleared cmos did you just remove the battery or did you move the jumper to pin 2-3 also.

I think the flash would be fine if you did not reset your bios prior to a flash providing you are using the original and not the upgraded CPU during the flash.

Your system needs to be running at it's best as in very stable peak performance prior to flashing. Resetting your bios prior to a flash would alter settings that are probably better than default. Unless the system is overclocked and tweeked on a bit.

My guess would be the CPU is defective or the flash failed and got corrupted some how. then again sometimes a new flash is a bit of a pita to get all dialed in and working correctly on these boards.

Have you tried to run the system w/the original CPU again?
