[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 985

post #9841 of 12343
First time poster, after reading a few pages of this thread I decided it was time to take the jump from my Athlon x2 6400+ that I have been running for over 4 years and buy the Phenom II X4 830, already did the BIOS update and just waiting to receive the new processor. From what I've read its one of the plug and play processors because of the 95W it takes and not the 125W. Was wondering if anyone else with the 830 or the 925 have had good results overclocking it and could direct my in the right direction in doing so myself. I was hoping to get around 3.2 GHZ from the 2.8 standard. Thanks.

Welcome!

You are correct, both of those models are pretty much plug and play and the only versions which require workarounds is the 955-980 chips. The 6400+ is a 125w chip and I upgraded from a 6400+ about over a year ago to a 970BE and the difference was night and day. The 945 is also worth looking at but they are becoming hard to come by these days. They come in both 95w and 125w.... the 95w version is plug and play with our boards.

When you get your new chip, make sure you do a proper reset of the BIOS and you should be good to go thumb.gif

I'm glad to see this. I was also considering that board. If you are willing to share your views on these, I'd appreciate that. Thanks.

It's pretty much a CHV w/o the ROG stuff.
Oc's like a beast.
Has LLC(for vdroop).Alot of other 990fx's have this problem(Gigabyte ud5/ud7 for example has no LLC)(MSI's tend to have weak VRM's).
5yr warranty.
And I'm an Asus fanboy biggrin.gif

As for resetting properly, pulling the battery and power plug should do it right? For overclocking on the 830 is it better to do it with the A.I overclocking tool in the bios or manually?

And move jumper.

Manually from the bios.
Lots of help here if you need it.

Good luck

Hey all,

Still having issues, the rig basically fell to pieces last night. The 2 sticks of Crosair ram were in and things were running nicely for a while... then I started getting crashes again. At some point the system tray icons started not appearing... then my sound card just started not putting out sound (optical and analog)... then the raid array I have setup became degraded... so, it was fun times all around!

At this point I decided I was going try one last setup with the 2009 BIOS (I thought I had tried it in the past, but who knows at this point). I downgraded to the 2009 BIOS and put in all 4 sticks of my Mushkin ram. Tried to boot, but it would restart at the "starting windows" screen. Went into BIOS and changed the ddr2 voltage to 2.1V and enabled Ganged mode. Windows was then able to boot. Because I've been so frustrated with getting this to work, I basically decided it was time to go for broke... soooo for the last 10ish hours I've been running Prime95, I also repaired the Raid array, and I've been running Pandora most of that time (yes, the sound magically worked again) and uTorrent a good bit of that time (uTorrent still occasionally konks out my internet connection, but I'm pretty sure that is router related). Anyway, I went to sleep and left on the computer figuring it would be locked up again this morning... but so far so good.

Annnnyway, I'm going to keep testing this setup, hopefully the 2009 BIOS are more stable... buuut, because of the above issues, I think windows might be corrupted someway, so I'm also gonna try a fresh windows install. Because it's on an SSD, I'm gonna use this guide to setup my drive:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-guide-optimization-for-ssds-hdds
One quick question, when I set up the drive before, I just assumed the M2N32-SLI Deluxe did not support AHCI... but I've been googleing and searching this thread and I'm seeing mixed reports on that. Does this board support AHCI, and if so, how do I turn it on?

Thanks again

Sorry to hear about the problems you;re having. Do you think it might be your PSU? I noticed you have 2 HDD, 2 Optical drives, 2 video cards, 6 fans + cpu fan, and how many sticks of ram? I don't know for sure, but to me 580W for that doesnt seem like its enough. I think the manual suggests 600W min. I have a similar amount of devices in my system an I've been thinking my 700W isn't enough, tho I do have a High Power Aux PSU seperately dedicated to just my 2 video cards.


[Edit] I just looked up my vga booster its a Sirtec High Power 400W VGA Booster PSU. Given that I have a dedicated 400W extra over the main 700W and my 12V is show low @ 11.81V is my reasons for thinking my PSU@700W isnt enough for my system.
