Very slow performance on M2N-MX SE Plus

I got a 5200+ amd athlon 64 X2 chip and im getting really poor performance in any game, including the 2D ones. My graphics card has better framerates on a different computer with the same drivers. What is wrong with CPU, not enough power?

    i have the mobo in my computer, as i bought the asus barebones. put in an amd athlon X2 6000+, OCZ 2GB ram, good hard drive etc, 600W power supply. yet i cant play any games, including half life 2. thought it may be a graphic card problem, updated to a nvidia 9800GT, same problem - frame rates of around 5fps. have tried every benchmark i can think of - the processor seems fine, doesnt seem to be overheating, the ram is stable. i have no idea what the problem is!

The cpu is overheating, just like mine, so you need to revert to an old bios
2.9 (stick it on a cd, rename the rom file to M2PLUSSE.ROM)

check the asus site out

reiterate: overheat = stress cpu = 100% death = fps death = total death

You may have too much stuff running in the background using up ram and processor cycles. Press ALT CTL and DEL at the same time and open task manager. It will let you know how many processes are running in the background and how much your 5200+ is being used and how much ram too.The names of the processes can be quite cryptic so don't just start taking them out.Download the program Process Explorer and run that. It will bring up the same list. The difference will be that you will have the option to google the process and see what it does. You can then decide if you can get rid of it without effecting your computer.Next go to Start/Run and type in msconfig. This is where you can get rid of those start up programs. Deselect all but the ones that are related to your anti virus program. Reboot and check the task manager to see if it helped.

M2n-mx se plus with amd64 5200 automatic shut down


it might be a bios problem. Check that your harddrive and cdrom are set correctly too. For example if your harddrive is set to master and your cdrom is set to slave, change the cdrom to master and harddrive to slave and see if this helps.

E2180 Vs Athlon 64 X2 5000+


depends on what you plan to do with the cpu amd are good but a 3200 may only run @ 1.8 to 3.2 ghz depending while a intel 3200 will run 3.2 ghz.
I believe intel are more stable & run cooler than AMD but AMD benchmarks on Games better but run hotter (so get a good cooling fan & heatsink both pentium / celeron d & intel dou / dual core / core 2 dou and amd x2 have 2 cores (but watch your front side bus and cache the higher the better but the more $ also) then You need a good stable mobo that supports the chip you get (I preffer asus & msi for Gamers and biostar / msi for home users)
