Well statistically there are more accidents involving people lacking the proper experience to drive a boat and when you add in other factors like a days worth of partying then the numbers increase. It's sad really because the responsible boaters will eventually have to pay for all the irresponsible ones. With regards to me. I only had 2 all day and it was right before I jumped into the lake with in the 5 mile per hour zone to get away from the wakes and speeding boats. I have no excuse other then my lack of memory and absent mindedness. I have jumped into swimming pools etc w/stuff in my pockets going all the way back to high school. Heck I use to thrash through the swampy trails in Texas on my dirt bikes when I was in high school and would loose all kinds of things. I just like to have good old clean fun.

That is so true, for now...

Sorry to just plop this into the thread guys, but I have a few quick questions. I'm looking for a 939 board, preferably new, I know the boards went out of production years ago, but I was hoping you guys might have a website that sells them which I do not know about. I've looked at newegg, tigerdirect, zipzoomfly, directron, geeks, used pricewatch, google shopping, amazon and pacificgeek. Not going to Ebay.

The boards I have found are overpriced, as to be expected, but I'd rather not pay more than $80. The board doesn't need anything fancy just one pci-e 16x slot, and a decent manufacturer i.e. not msi or foxconn. If you guys have any extra's laying around I might be interested in those also.

Thanks in advance for the useful information I know will follow.

Pest, unfortunately S939 motherboards are more rare than diamonds. Especially if you're looking for a brand-new one, it is almost impossible (right now I would say it IS impossible) to find one in the retail channel.

Other than a private seller, you very likely will not be able to find any new S939 boards. Even through a private seller, you probably will not get anything new.

eBay is risky, but to be honest I myself have yet to be burned on eBay. I've purchased a few boards from there and, except for my DFI LANParty UT CFX3200-DR, I've yet to have bought a lemon. In all fairness, though, the board itself is likely to be defective anyway.

Nevertheless, good luck in your quest, Pest.

Thats the case with most everything. There used to be a spot around where I live where everyone would go out and drag race. It was by an abandoned airfield so there was literally almost no traffic. Then a couple of guys on crotch rockets were drunk and wrecked pretty hard. 1 of them died when they hit a UPS truck. But in all honesty I believe it was their fault since they went past where everyone knew you needed to slow down and blew through a red light.

The ONLY place that I have seen new 939 boards was on ebay and a few shops around here which want WAAAY too much for em, especially since the ones I saw were AGP. One guy told me $195, I literally was like

You can look at www.starsurplus.com they might have some boards on there. I haven't looked in a while so I don't know.


EDIT: So I finally broke down and bought a GOOD cooler, the Xigmatek Dark knight. I should probably see it tomorrow or the next day. I'll be sure to run some benches and a comparison between that and my XP120.
As for my Big Typhoon, its sitting on that lapped 3800x2, and man WOW what a difference 2 lapped surfaces make. At idle its ALWAYS at ambient temps. I'm actually fairly amazed by that improvement in temps.

Boats... ahh Last weekend I went boating, and almost managed to tip it over, as we were pulling my brother in, and I jumped out to go swim to the tube (tubing), 3 guys were on one side, and I was on the other, balancing it out xD

You can do a search with pricewatch.com and see what turns up.
That's how I found a brand-new A7N8X back in 07 years after they were no longer being made.
No guarantees but woudn't hurt to see what's there.
Good Luck with your search.

OK fellas, my dark knight arrived today. And I am thoroughly impressed by how truely flat this thing is. It has less variation than the thickness of a piece of paper.

At any rate, I was looking at the fan which is this cool looking clear smoked color and noticed that the fan has a 4 pin connector on it. What the hell am I supposed to hook this thing up to? Can you just plug it in to a 3 pin header and leave one not plugged in?

Looks like I am going to have to go get an adapter of some sort.
