The Socket 939 Appreciation Club and Knowledgebase [Official] - Page 1673

post #16721 of 28729
I'm surprised I didn't join the club long ago. I have a total of four socket 939 machines, with two of them running, an Athlon X2 4200+ and an Athlon 64 3800+. I have two Athlon 64 3700+ machines, both with dead motherboards. (One Gigabyte and one MSI...)

Neither is overclocked right now, but they both used to be. I should really get around to getting those overclocks back up there. Here are some CPU-Z screenshots, though:

Haha, maybe if I'm hopeful it does. It's pretty much just a made-up name for a place in California. As far as I know, it's pronounced like Isaac's. [Zeye-zicks.] Thanks for the welcome!

I tried to phonetically pronounce it a few differnet ways and the best I could find was Z Yyzz. My touge started twisting after that and I choked and died. that's OK i'm back now.

For that size of an aircraft it surely is a good looking machine. I like how the wings sweep back when it gets going really fast.
As for the retiring part it's probably no longer stealthy enough. I wonder if the B2 has teh same payload as that one?

All Molex/Bergman connectors are plugged into the board and I have tried 2 different Crossfire bridges because each 2900XT comes with its own bridge.

I think I've narrowed it down to something software-related. All my hardware seems to be working fine. There are no Xpress 200 chipset drivers for this board, so that's out of the picture, and like I said in my previous post, I tested both cards, both PCIe slots, and my PSU is a PCP&C Turbocool 750W Silencer Quad, so I'm sure that's not the issue either. My mobo BIOS version is the latest one for this board (0605) and I have Catalyst 9.6 drivers. The one thing I haven't tried is formatting my HDD and starting fresh, which I'm going to do soon. I first installed the OS about 2 years ago, which was back when the board had a very crappy BIOS and people were all over multiple forums raging over the stability problems of this board, so maybe wiping the slate clean will solve my problem. Who knows...
Hey decimate, the board I am currently running is, from what I gather, identical to yours in regards to the chipsets.
Does the board not want to post when the bridge is attached to both cards? Does it POST with both cards in and not connected? Do you have the latest ULi 220 driver? Is there a BIOS setting that needs to be enabled before crossfire will work?

And without a doubt, I would do a re-install. I had similar issues even on a clean install, I redid it twice as I tried to use the silicon image controller as my RAID controller, but I'm glad I used the ULi one as it's considerably faster.

BTW, I'm using the 9.3 driver on mine (had it saved to a disk). I haven't even bothered to update it yet.

Welcome Zzyzx!
We'll be watching to see what you come up with. As to the "Dead" MB's, sorry to hear about those since these boards are almost like Gold to those of us who appreciate 939 systems.

Any chance these could be fixed or are these just another casualty of OC'ing?

Bad caps are easily replaced if that's the problem you know - Just need to have the correct caps to use for replacements. Saved one of my Socket A boards earlier this way with parts from a truly dead MB or it would have been dead itself by now. Just saying this in case the problem you have with these is due to this and it's easily fixed as stated. If anything, useful for parts to keep the ones you have going if needed.

Actually, neither is really an OC casualty. The Gigabyte definitely needs new caps. I don't know that that's all that's wrong with it, but several of them have leaked down. I have an Athlon XP 2200+ running in its place right now, and I haven't had a lot of time to try and get the motherboard working again. It still posts, but starts having trouble around HDD detection, sometimes it gets to the OS and bluescreens, so I'm hopeful.

The MSI motherboard, I'm afraid, may be more fatally wounded. It was in my dad's computer for a long time, and when I picked it from him because it stopped working, the only thing I could find not working was the NB fan, and I'm afraid the NB itself is fried.

I made standoffs for the pcb. What you are referring to is a plastic screen for cooling.

Oh, right. Thanks
Two in one, is that fan enough? Maybe you should put it under water.
