i was wondering if anybody has seen pics or heard from people using the AM3 socket PII's in the M2N Sli Deluxe

I have seen reports of the PII 920&940BE working, but those are AM2+. So i don't know if the AM3 would work or not

The M2N Sli Deluxe isn't on Asus' list of AM3-ready MBs (although other M2Ns are), and thus they don't have a BIOS for it that will support the AM3s. Sorry.

Ok, though, i am thinking about tempting fate to try it, and if it doesnt work, get a new mobo

And perhaps a new CPU, if the M2N fries your AM3...

yeah, that would suck, but, since im poor, ill just wait and get a new setup anyways, a new 1k system would destroy this one

I have the same MOBO, I read about this topic, but the Phenom II that was used have a AM2+ Socket Requirements, recently ASUS post a 1701 BIOS version for support the latest Athlon X2 7750 BE, but many people test the news Phenom II version with AM2 socket.

just grabbed an amd 955 today. it seems stuck at 800mhz (btw i'm using an m2n-e board)
i tried changing the multiplier in the bios (and disabling qnq), but no joy also can't seem to find any software overclocking tool that actually starts

hmmm, well, i might try this with one of my friends boards (i no longer have it because i sold the computer) and i have an PII 810, i don't think the AM3 PII's will work though
