Where to buy decent s939 mobo?!?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm looking for a decent socket 939 mobo so I can oc my 4200 further than my current (lame) mobo. I've been looking at anything based on the NF4 chipset from the DFI range but I can't find anywhere to buy them. Sometimes some pop up on ebay but I've been stung a few times using that so not an ideal option.

So can anyone recommend somewhere (online / offline, doesn't matter) where I can pick up a nice DFI NF4 motherboard?

Newegg has the A8N32-SLI and SLI Premium still I believe. One of those two are your best option for under $149.99

Have a look around for the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4

They are the best s939 OC'ers

The Egg has the OEM NEW Bulk for $90+ s&h
OEM, New Bulk do not come with any thing other than the MB... NO I/O plate, drivers, etc...

Cheers for the replies. Should have mentioned I'm in UK I suppose so I'd have to whack on quite a bit for p&p. We don't have as wide a choice as far as e-retailers go.. dabs, ebuyer, tekheads... if there are more decent ones out there I haven't heard of them!

Then I'd have to upgrade my cpu & ram, the whole point is squeezing more out of what I've got... the cheapest way to do that is ug'ing the mobo.

So I keep hearing!! But none of the e-tailers i know of stock it, and googles product search returns one stupidly expensive (130GBP) option..

Guess I'll keep looking at what people here are trying to sell and hope I get lucky

Yea, those boards are hard to come by unfortunately.

I have an Asus A8N SLI Premium mobo for sale for £45 shipped if you are interested.

It isn't the best OC'er but i managed to get my 3700+ to 2.97 and my Opty 165 to 2.8 (couldn't go further with the Opty because of heat issues)

However the board caps out at about 310 FSB

Linky if you're interested.

The newegg reference was just that, only a reference... hopefully if you want an OEM New you can get one across the pond.
