Tforce 6100-939. Any quirks I need to know?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So I decided on a Tforce 6100-939 for my Opty 165.

http://www.chiefvalue.com/product/pr...tem=13-138-264

Are there any quirks I need to know about, or absolute gotta have upgrades I should be getting? I am a little concerned about how well the chipset heatsinks do their job.

Also, what are some good choices for memory? I need good value, not most expensive.

Given that you're not tryin to reach maximum overclock, nor do much gaming... I'd look for the cheapest name-brand pc 3200 I could find... something along the lines of Geil , Patriot, or PQI.

Well, it is a fine lil MB that does some good OCing.
Something to consider if you have not purchased it yet. The Biostar ATX version in which supports SLI has a BIG MIR if you don't mind waiting for the REBATE it's $75 after the MIR.

I already ordered the 6100. The deciding factor was a reasonable onboard video and good OC reputation. This gives me the chance to OC and upgrade a bit at a time and get my sempron up and running on this current board. Anything I do these days is a vast improvement ovet the Socket A Athalon I am moving up from. (It can be nice to be behind the technology curve some times)

Thanks for the input. Have to see how far I can go before the memory stops me cold.

Tforce is here and running... I have never compiled a build log before. What information actually helps people? I would like for it to be of use.

I hit my 3000+ over 2.6Ghz with this board.

1 problem I found is the board failed to detect SATA controller after
I upgrade bios to newer version than what it has.
I ran rescue disk(app) to roll back the bios.

But it's up and running
keep doing what it suppose to do.
very good mATX board.

DruidsLaughter can you post your idle, load temps on your opty an when you get around to it and your max OC. I have the same stepping and was wondering what your readings are for comparison as me and a couple others i have come across with this particular stepping run rather hot even with higher end air cooling, although it is very stable even at upper overclocks and I am thinking it might be bad TIM under the IHS.

My idle temps are about 33 to 35 C. For some reason the second core is reading a couple degree higher than the first . Once I figure out how to run two instances of Prime95 I will have a good loaded temp.

This board is great... look for the bios pages for it.. It has modded bios's and they work great... My board with the beta bios that I downloaded will run well over 300 fsb.. but at that fsb the network card (built in) dies... Bemmer but all you need to do is get a NIC card and your good....
