My System Specs

Default greetings

Ah so the 939 isnt dead yet! Personally I think youve made a good choice as long as the price was good.

I really like the opterons, games are very smooth-the extra cache helps. That board is also very solid and fast.

There is a guide to ocing the asusa8n32 board in the forum..its really important to get the HTT settings right. A8N32 Quickie OC guide

With the multi on your cpu and the headroom on your board 3ghz is not an issue.

It really depends on your cpu stepping though. CCBWE i think was the not so good ..CCBBE, LCB9E are good ones. Just follow arbb5's link and keep the temps below 55oc otherwise its not good.

My only irritation with this board is that you are forced to link memory to the FSB with preset frequencies only. This should not be an issue with your multi on the cpu though.

I can hit an 2.95 on this opteron comfortably but have to drop the RAM from 166mhz to 133mhz as it cannot handle
DDR270*2. This then drops the RAM to DDR218*2

have fun anyway
