Just found one at Goodwill for 6.99 a Gigabyte K8NSC-939 that booted right up, an AGP oddity w/one swollen cap

Asus A8N Sli Premium(wounded, upper pci-e slot not functioning)
MSI K8N neo 4 Ver 2.0
Asus A8N-E
DFI Ultra d

Dead boards
Abit Fatal1ty AN8 Sli(accidentally killed plugging in the P4 connections wrong way, Ouch!!)
Asus A8v (DOA)

Hmmm, guess I had more than I thought,lol.

A bunch of cpu's 3x165's (all good steppings), x2 4800, 3200, 2x3500, 3400

The 939's are still a lot of fun to play around with and overall a good platform for casual computer use.

My run with the 3700 in a DFI Ultra d, couldn't quite hit the magic 3GHz

didn't you just buy a 180 and some ram kits for cheap, too?

btw...that link is for the Opty148

Sure did

Nice catch on the opty 148, same specs as a 3700 if I recall


Those mods on the NF4 D and Ultra D were pretty simple and effective with a circuit writer pen

I bet that's what killed it. I get like when I see any temp over 60C. My DFI's the PWM IC's never see over 47C .

It did until Nvidia disabled it with their drivers. However the mod is relatively easy so not a big deal (I've done it to 2 Ultra-D's).

Pencil mod doesn't work as the graphite does have some resistance to it (I measured with a volt meter). The NB requires a pure 12v signal in order for SLI to work properly.

I looked and looked for a circuit writer pen and couldn't find one for cheap enough. Hell the pens cost more than a soldering iron. That's what I used to mod both of my Ultra-D's. They still work great

BlackOmega, the mod should still work with a older driver version correct? Do you know which version they started locking this down?

I got the circuit writer pen at radio shack for about 8-9.00 years back.

A small fan worked over the pwm area to control heat if I remember.

A nice monitoring program was MBM5 w/modded files for DFI NF4's

O man...... this was years and years ago. I can't recall off the top of my head which driver actually disabled it, but I'm sure that you would not want to use it today. I'll have search my archive of 939 Ultra-D modding info.
Although the number 76.xx comes to mind, most likely that's not it. We'd ahve to do a search of their drivers from '05.

Yeah that's where I went to look for it. And they didn't even have one, when I looked online I only found pens for ~$25.

Little OT, where at in MI are you playah?
