Is anyone using Cool 'n Quiet successfully on this board? I'm using it with an Athlon 64 3000+. I have CnQ enabled in the BIOS, the AMD driver is loaded, and I have the power management set on Minimal. However, MSI's CoreCell utility as well as WCPUID are indicating that it's only dropping to 200x9 from the 200x10 full speed.

Any suggestions? I believe this CPU should drop down to something like 1GHz when idle.

I'm thinking of getting an MSI Athlon board, so hopefully someone has an answer to this.

I'm running an MSI K8t neo-fis2r. I know pretty different, but my CnQ works fine, multiplier drops to four.

hi matt-man!

As Im writing this my K8N neo platinum is reporting a speed of 1000mhz 5x mult, all I´ve done is enabled it in the bios and set power management in controlopanel to minimal. Works like a charm!

Cool :) Just a little question: How many memory slots do you have populated?

Same here. Cheapest 3200 ram available (Corsair value) 2x512mb. Yes, that's two slots.

I only had a single problem with dual slots: I had to change the locations of the memory from -XX to X-X or XX-.

For what it's worth, I updated to the version 1.20 BIOS and now it idles at 200x5.

Hello:

Has anybody tried running all three RAM slots at DDR400? If so, what RAM and what latency settings?

Is this board undervoltable? If so, what have you managed, with what CPU?
