So you have a Green M2N Series Motherboard, and like all of us at some point you'll have questions about our board. Well join the club! Literally. I welcome new members of all motherboard types to join the club and encourage you to contribute by sharing your wealth of knowledge. To all the M2N users, I would like to congradulate you on your choice of motherboard and will do my very best to help out anybody with these MotherBoards. Club enrollment is simple. All that is required of you is to post a Valid CPU-Z link ( CPU-Z Validation Instructions ) in the club thread and make sure before you post asking questions, your User CP is up to date with your System Information ( CLICK ON ME to update you system information). The System information will list all your hardware and software infomation in your Signature. This makes it very easy for us all to see what hardware and software you are using. I urge every new member to participate in their own learning curve as much as possible by taking some time to learn the information listed in the guides below. Together we can all make this a fun and insightfull club to be part of.

Even though ASUS does not officially support what we recently discoverd. I am proud to announce with the help of some pioneers that our mothoerboards will boot and run with the New AM2+ Phenom II CPU's. So incase your wondering yes your M2N Series motherboard will run happily with a new Am2+ Ph II cpu.

Some people have been using the AM3 CPU's like the x4 955 & 965 in these motherboards w/some little work arounds. For example: Several users have reported not being able to coldboot normally w/out having to push the reset button or, F1, F2 or the J Key while coldbooting the system. Some users have reported bugs when using USB keyboards w/the latest updates and and were able to fix this bug by the use of a PS2 keyboard. Additionally other users report being able to fix these little coldboot set backs by downclocking the ram divider to 667MHz in the bios. Here is a direct link to a x4 955 validation on this mobo thanks to our member of this club BigJohn44. Explained in greater detail how to make an AM3 CPU work with a M2N series mobo.

Here is a link to Nvidia System Tools also listed in the Nvidia section below. Nvidia System Tools is what BigJohn44 uses to run his system w/the right CPU/HT Frequencies.

Due to unforeseen circumstances and reasons unannounced to me CorryBasler will no longer be managing This Thread. As always I’m sad to see a member go. As of November 20th 2008 I’m offered the Opportunity to be the new Leader of this thread and will do my best to keep every club member current. Additionally I will add new members to our roster upon request. I have a couple of ideas already planned for this club. With a little luck and help from our members, I'm sure this will remain an enjoyable club for some time to come. Extended thank you to The Duke for making this possible.

Work in progress

Quote tmj: Now, as far as learning what the values are for the settings on "Auto," I use two programs (they perform identically): A64 Tweaker and MemSet.

A64 Tweaker is an old standby for K8s; I don't know, however, if it works on anything later than S939. MemSet, on the other hand, is almost universally-compatible. K10stat

&w=100 (This is percent, substitute the 100 for any number from 1-100)
&h=600 (This is pixel height, substitute the 600 for any number from 1-whatever, but be reasonable)
&gid=0 (This is the sheet number, substitute the 0 for any sheet number)
&single=true (This will display a single sheet)

Ok cool that means i can get a straight swap from my retailer. if they didnt make it anymore i would have to get a RMA from ASUS which would take ages lol

Sweet, I'm here

It's a great board, I'd overclock my cpu further if I had a better heatsink too. That 4400+ at 3.25ghz is insane btw. What vcore is that on?

This board is awesome.
Has anyone had any experience using AM2+ processors on this board?

I got it to a sweet 3.31 GHz but its not Prime95 Stable on any Voltages! At 3.27 GHz i was runing a 1.5v then droped to 1.4 and its still Prime95 Stable! Going to go lower someday when i get the time!

I used to have one of these boards. Got a 5600+ windsor up to 3.4 benching and 3.3 stable daily with max temps 56 full load.

This board is an insane AMD OC'er
