Try soaking that case in something. Orange Goo Gone removes a lot of stuff, and dish soap breaks down most oils. If you can determine what it is, paint thinner or alcohol might rub it clean?

Socket A was fun, good ole' gold finger modding. I made a nice setup for A for a friend, had a sempron 2800 I think. And either a NVIDIA 6200 or 6600. One day he tries to clean it, takes the heat sink off, scrapes two of those black foam pads off and cleans the TIM off the CPU and puts it back on. "Dude my computer stopped working", get over there and of course he nuked it.

First A I had was my real step up from a 333mhz slot 1 celeron. Ran it with 384mb sdr until I got some ddr and ran it at 512, then 1gb. PC-Chips board with both - two sdr two ddr slots. No overclocking options except ram dividers really. Pin and gold finger mods and I had that Palimino screaming wink.gif. Started out at 1.44ghz or so - I think it was a 1700+. Had it running fully stable at 1.7-something. Got bored one day after I had moved to 939 and wanted to see how high it could go, Got past 1.9 but I think 2ghz was the nail in the coffin for that processor redface.gif

Im not messing with any old hardware anymore, 939 is as far back I go unless im working on someone elses rig. I might try to clean this server case up tho, its built like a tank. I wanted to use it for my Dual socket 604 Intel server motherboard engineering sample i got, but its wATX, and doesnt fit by a hair.

Here's my new Opty 185 I got off RyanMicah this past weekend, 2.9 is as far as she goes, but look at that voltage! Yeah, 100% stable, mobo auto throttles up to 1.42vCore under 100% load, idles 1.392v... NICE CHIP! thumb.gif



RAM is dialed in hella good too! biggrin.gif



And of course, Imma shoot for MOAR! redface.gif

Wow. What a week. I'm beat. I got on tv news this week, just doing my job...God that reporter was hot.

So, I'm trying to get this old LED display working. I think it's from 1996-97. Just 3 digits with periods between them, but it's pretty unique. It was from my folk's first PC. biggrin.gif

I think I'm addicted to 939. I got this board for free, and I hate it more than you can imagine, but so far I've bought 2 9800GTX+ cards, a new cpu heatsink (Finding a 939 compatible one now sucks), a new northbridge sink (Low profile, can't fit a good one under the gfx cards), a 60GB SSD, an Opteron 165 to replace a dead FX 4200+, and now I have 2 gigs of ram and an Opty 180 on its way.

I'm addicted, and I love this architecture.

You sure your 9800 GTX's aren't being bottlenecked by your CPU?

Haha, I have an AM3 system, but it just doesn't bring the same feelings. Fun to OC, for sure, but there's just something about how finicky K8 is, and the unavailability of guaranteed speed. Of my three systems, I left my two most powerful at home and brought my k8 to school with me. My mac runs new games fine, and I have more fun trying to get weak overclocks out of this worn out board and used parts.

Speaking of, I'm having some problems with overclocking. I dropped my HT down to 3x and my ram multi to 166mhz, but I can't get over 228mhz stable FSB. 229 will last a few hours, but then refuse to post. 230-232 will post fine once, then last about two hours. 233, my main goal for this chip has posted once, and then immediately froze booting to mint. I have ram coming, so hopefully that's the problem, but even at 3-7-3 (rated 2.5-7-3) it's having problems. I'm starting to chalk it up to the board, but finding a replacement SLI compatible 939 board is tough. Any tips?

run memtest at said spd's
check PSU w/DMM
run ram at speed closer to default ram spd and timing
add more voltage to the ram
place more fans over your mobo's mosfets & VRM's

IDK it could be any number of things including the CPU

Testing all your hardware individually one by one for it's weekness is the best way to get pointed in the right direction.

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually thought of that last night, and I've started to do the process of finding my optimum oc. So far I've hit my FSB stability limit at 239Mhz. Voltage does nothing, it's a brick wall. The next step I figured would be to get my HT up, but pushing that multi any is causing some problems. I know default is 5x on this board, but even at 2x it's not posting. Welcome to the world of compromised performance I guess. Time to back off my fsb till I find the highest multi I can push I guess. So long as I get 233fsb at my 9x cpu multi, I'm happy.

EDIT: Was there ever any effect on stability from getting an updated bios with these boards? I know the history of this one, and there are at least four newer bios versions I could try also.
