Simple answer is yes.

Good luck

Hi guys,

I have an Asus m2n-sli and i figured that I would come to the experts with my problem....

I am trying to overclock the phenom ii x4 945 (rev. 3) processor I recently upgraded to from my athlon 4200+.
Plagued by a problem I am, as when I go and try to increase the voltages, or even if i increase my frequency above 210, my system gives me a warning in my POST message telling me that the POST test failed.

Any ideas?

I think that this problem originates from the voltages, as a frequency up to 210 works, but when I go higher and increase the voltages it gives me the aforementioned warning.

Thanks in advance,
TheDukeofErl

Hey all.

I recently purchased an AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE (125W) from Ebuyer, I put the 5002 BIOS on my M2N32-SLI MB and put the processor in, tweaked the settings to get the core speeds at stock level.

My problem is, every 2 hours of use my computer will just lock up. It happened 3 times yesterday, always after 2 hours. Below is my CPU-Z information. I think it's because of the voltages? I'm unsure. Can anyone help please?

The M2N-sli and M2N-e are not very good oc'ers.
Have you tried the AI oc 3%,5%,8%,10% options.
Reset bios to defaults before each test.

See if that helps

Good luck

Bump the cpu volts a couple notches till it reads as 1.35v+/- in cpu-z.
Run prime95 and see how long it lasts before lock up or crash.

Please post the rest of your system specs, thanks

Note in his output that wattage shows 65W. I never understood why CPUZ was not reading correctly, or if it is, to explain why.

Haven't had a lock up yet today, computer's been on since around 10:30am (7 hours), however if it does start again I will do what you suggest and up the voltage. I'm not sure why it's saying 65W either, I have all AMD features (such as Cool n Quiet) disabled but I'm unsure that would have any effect?

I have Prime95 but only used it once, I presume I need to just run a stress test and leave it going until it either crashes or I shut down?

Edit/ Forgot to add system specs.

Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 6142MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11

Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
Display Memory: 3306 MB
Dedicated Memory: 491 MB
Shared Memory: 2815 MB

More than happy to upload a full DxDiag for you, but since I haven't had any crashes today I'm going to be optimistic and hope I don't have any problems to trouble you with smile.gif Thanks for your replies as well.

Prime95 isn't something you want running indefinitely and you surely want to monitor temps while it's runnin because it is the most severe application you can run. If your system is not stable, you will know within minutes. But if you can survive the first few minutes, then you want to see how well the system runs be soaking it for an hour. The peak temps should stabilize. Obviously if they don't you want to be ready to stop the test.

Alas, there is no success with that frown.gif

However, I did notice that in CPU-Z when my CPU Voltage is increased there is no increase listed there. is it possible that this is the problem and the CPU will not overclock due to a lack of voltage increase?

I will keep trying to figure out if there is a way to fix that.

(voltage in bios is at 1.350

I believe that is the problem,lack of voltage adjustment(same as the M2N-e).
You may be able to adjust voltages with PMT(PhenomMSRTweaker) http://phenommsrtweake.sourceforge.net/
