The m2n -SLI can only support up to 95w TDP chips. The highest Phenom II's you can put in that board would be the 925 (2.8Ghz) and the 945 (3Ghz). Running your 970 at 2.8GHz should be fine and 3GHz seems to be the maximum you can go, and anything over that is asking for trouble since there is no heat pipe cooling over the MOSFETS not to mention the weak VRM versus the m2n32/m2n-sli deluxe models.

If you are going to keep the 970BE in your system, I would highly advise running your system though Prime95 for a while to make sure you system is stable at which ever clocks you are going to be running.

Okay so, I just recently tried to run Dirt 3 and my computer went insane. Screen started flashing and weird noises happened. Tried to run Burnout Paradise City and had the same issue. Closed out of it and opened Firefox and it crashed repeatedly and then started like warping [?] I guess you could say. Also, I will run my system through Prime95 but I mean.. It's obviously not stable now either way. Lol.

Also, considering just a straight up trade for a 945. Would that be a bad offer. I got this processor on sale but who ever I trade with wouldn't have to know that. So, I would barely lose cash.

Anyone had any experience with RMAs with Asus on these boards? I got a m2nsli that i just hate to see sit around. It just didnt boot one day, and i believe it is way past warranty. tongue.gif lol

Hi Guys!


Hi Guys! Thanks for giving me the confidence to embark on this adventure. This forum is the best. Over the weekend I installed my shiney new Phenom II x4 970. The hardware install was without a hitch. (Thanks to the detailed instructions I found here.) Getting the cores up to speed was slow, because I didn't notice Nvidia's 'It's not our fault your smoked your processor' button. My system seems to be running well at 3.7 Ghz. I set the FSB where my old Athlon 2x 5000 BE was running, and set the multiplier to match. It crashed a couple times before I changed the cpuv from auto to 1.350v.

2190078.png

My problem now, is that the CPU multiplier buttons in Nvidia system tools have disappeared! When I select the performance tools tab, right page flashes for a millisecond, then I get a vanilla version that will only let me change the bus. I have tried to reinstall, uninstall, and older version; I get the same results. Now I am stuck at 800Mhz. Any ideas?


I tried to use PMT, but I haven't been able to make it work at all. I push apply, and nothing happens. I had hoped to use it to control the cpu fan.

Thanks!

Hey guys... Thought just occurred to me... I am gonna need working drivers for my M2N SLI Deluxe board for Windows 7 64-bit.

I am gonna be installing Win7 Pro 64-bit in a few days and I didn't realize until just now that ASUS never put any Windows 7 64 specific drivers up on their site for this particular board... I don't know if you M2N32 owners have been more lucky but unfortunately I am stuck with the M2N SLI Deluxe.

I also run a RAID 0 configuration on two WD Caviar Black HDDs and I need some help with finding a driver and what to do with it?

I downloaded the 15.58 nForce driver package from the nvidia website:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce-vista-win7-64bit-15.58-driver.html

it says the following things are contained in it:
Ethernet Driver (v73.20) WHQL
Network Management Tools (v73.16) "Sedona"
SATAIDE Driver (v11.1.0.43) WHQL
SATARAID Driver (v11.1.0.43) WHQL
RAIDTOOL Application (v11.1.0.43)
SMBUS Driver (v4.74) WHQL
SMU Driver (v1.71) WHQL
Installer (v7.57)

The whole thing comes as an installer though, so how do I get at the RAID tool only? Does this application make a disk with RAID drivers for Win7?

Ok alternatively I was thinking I could try using the Vista 64 RAID disk creator but I don't know if this will work... The OS is not even installed at that stage so is it even possible to do a compatibility mode or will these just work....

Anyone else got this working on the M2N SLI Deluxe with a RAID and or Win 7 Pro 64?

Try downclocking it some more,reduce cpu volts alittle too.
What cpu did you have in it before?

It is way past warranty,but if you are willing to pay they may be able to fix it.
Any other details about why it won't boot?

Windows power options set to performance?
Set cpu Q-fan to optimal, that is the best setting.
