I actually have never even considered painting the case until you mentioned it. .........I'd have to take it all apart and do some sanding, but I do have some black spray paint. Maybe I'll do that one of these days...it would probably look a little better.

I think my 4400+ Toledo is going to be here today. Happy New Year
EDIT: yup it's at the PO, gtg pick it up. whooohoooo!
I suppose you get used to it and become uneasy when the fans aren't going.

As thlnk3r said, the 32bit one is the one you need.

And yeah I saw the white box and was like . And thought to myself, it's not a bad looking case, I bet it would look better in any other color than white.

PS: If you guys haven't already seen it, that Eidos game pack on steam is really a smokin deal. 20 games for $50 and that includes Batman AA, Hitman 1 and 2, Deus Ex, Tomb Raider etc.

Happy New Year Pio, and everybody else!
How many other people are still using their 939 rigs as their main and/or only rig? I would still like to build a new PC, but realistically I have no need to. I don't want to waste money on another 2GB DDR set and have it be unstable, though, so I'm staying at 2GB too .

Nate, Happy New year

I just recently built two Athlon II rigs (in the process of testing). I'm not sure what I'll do with my other S939 stuff though. Spare hardware I guess?

ok so I added 10c to core temps offset function and now it runs +/- 1 degree with cpu temp in the other programs. but in HWMonitor core temp is still 10-11 degrees less than cpu so it must be sensor in the chip because it's correct on other cpus.
....and if I paint the case, all I can paint in the top, the sides, the back, and the inside. I have to leave the front white because all my components are white. I bet it'll still look a lot better.

I'm running 939 as my only system. And I plan to continue for awhile. Just got a 4400+ toledo in the mail today($75), and I'm getting another Neo2 Platinum soon. I'm going to build a second 939 rig so I have a place to put my Opteron 170 that will only run in single channel. Not sure what I'll use it for. Happy New Year

Ny_driver, the "cpu temp" on my Opteron 146 was always higher than my "core temps". I'm pretty sure this is normal. As to the accuracy of the readings...well I'm not certain on that

Good luck

To tell you honestly, I didn't actually need to build this AM3 rig. I just wanted to.
And yeah 2 GB is plenty for XP. I've run 2 and 4 sticks on my 939 rig (my opty 180 will run 4 sticks @ DDR400 no problem), and quite honestly, there wasn't a noticeable difference so I pulled 2 sticks back out of it.
And it's still quite a capable rig. Not much it can't handle really, even games. But you know what I'm really curious about is how well a 939 rig would perform with a 58xx series card. I wonder if you could hit 15/16k in 3dm06.

I'm running the 3700+....on the Opteron core temp was higher.
I just checked bios reading and it said 32c which is the same as I get from "cpu" reading in windows( and core temp now that I added 10)
It seems right to me.

I know where you can get a 4400+ Toledo for $75+$6 shipping, which is by far the cheapest you'll find 939 with 2x1024 L2 cache on ebay. I just bought one Monday night. Look here for the link http://www.overclock.net/online-deal...0-100-obo.html it says 100 OBO they took $75 from me. I'm going down to the PO to pick it up in a little while. Hope this helps. I'm sure you can find a decent 939 mobo for a good price.

BO, hahaha I'll probably post a mini-build log in the AM3 Knowledgebase and Info thread when I'm all done. I'm still waiting for a case before I finish

Ghost55, honestly I don't know if you'll be able to find S939 hardware for cheap. A lot of the gear is still expensive. Try looking in the For Sale section or even Ebay.

Good luck
