My only explanation is that comsic rays from outer-space attacked the BIOS chip.
Great thing about the SataII was that it was the only board with full AGP and PCI-E support. ULI M1695 chipset IIRC. Nvidia bought ALI to bury that chip. Part of the plan to push PCI-E.

I had the same issue with this board and had to reflow the chipset to restore it. Only lasted another 6 months after that. But I got a few important years out of the board and was able to run dual agp/pci-e.

Yeah, it allowed me to run my AGP ATI X800XL until I could afford to upgrade. I grabbed an ATI X1950GT around a year later.

I have high hopes now that it's the motherboard and not my beloved Opteron. Sadly though, the guy I PM'd about the motherboard hasn't gotten back to me yet

So far its been running 24/7.. been using it as my HTPC.

Temps are beginning to creep a little bit.. 40-42C idle and seen it hit high 50's under load (56-59)

The water tubes are looking a bit cloudy, and the radiator is probably gunked up with dust. (time to do a little cleany action)

For being such an old cpu and mem, I'm very pleased with its performance. (tempted to buy a couple more of those asrock boards for my 2.4ghz toledos)

OHH no's IT'll burn up!!!

Accidentally hit 140c with my 165 once! Couldn't figure out why the system kept shutting down. Molex fell into the thermaltake volcano fan.

Buddy of mine just bought one but it was hurting (All he could find) and he had to replace the caps, These things are rarer than virgins in Brazil.

Go with the Lanparty.

We need to keep this club kicking guys - Perhaps in the near future a comp could be held here to get some interest going. Still have the hardware I was running and could be fired up again.

OK - I know we've all kinda upgraded beyond 939 and that was bound to happen sooner or later. Personally I'm still AMD and recently got a AM3+ Crosshair V board but it's kinda on the fritz ATM. Got an RMA approval today so it's going back - I'll let you guys know how that turns out. I'm sure Asus will take good care of me since their hardware over the years certainly has.

For those that are members of my home site, I can setup a comp as well there specifically for 939 benching if you'd like, no prob and can promise you'll be in good company - Plus you will have some competition to make it interesting.

If it's done, would be no sooner than September to get it going but I feel that October would be a better time since the weather is still kinda warm up until then for most of us.
With good 939 hardware getting harder to find each day, no sense in making it any harder on the stuff than we'd need it to be.
For those that are members there, let me know if you'd like to do that.

As for here, C'mon guys we can do something 939 related soon!
I'd be down for doing something. I'm planning on selling my i7 and AM3 getup, so I'll be back on my 939 gear.

Depending on what you're willing to pay I still have some boards (DFI) laying around.

This sucks.

I'm short an H50, a cheap GPU (silent or quiet with a blue PCB / black cooler), and a few other small things to finish my build. Ugh.

Lemme know if you need anything from me to get this going.
I'd be in for a contest here too.

Not sure yet. I haven't been too impressed with intel and gaming to tell you quite honestly. While sure the processors can handle it just fine, there's always some sort of weird anomalies. For instance, all of my Codemasters games (Dirt, Dirt 2, Grid, etc.) have this weird speeding up and slowing down issue --rendering them unplayable. I've tried turning HT off, which helps, but the issue is still there.
Just recently I've been playing through Mass Effect again, both one and two, and every so often, just out of the blue, my characters will start floating above where they're supposed to be with no way of getting back to "ground level". Have to reload.
Little crap like that has been gettin on my nerves.

However, BD results aren't too impressive (from the ones I have seen), although AM3, for most titles, is more than adequate and can play games without any issues. Anyone know if there are any official benchmarks for BD yet?
