Hi seaFs,

Ah yes, that seems to depend on the CPU memory controller and the mainboard quality... I guess I'm lucky,, but you're right, if it doesn't boot, check each DIMM alone for faulty ones, and then ... lower the memclock ...

Found a talk about it at Anandtech forum:

Welp I bought me 4x4gb anyway, I'll give playing with it a shot but I'm going into this knowing it is probably worthless without the a8n's.

I'd like an a8n32 sli but the prices are too high for me, and I am nostalgic on the other motherboards I have.



Actually, I am now wondering if it would work on my Abit Fatal1ty AN8 SLI.... Same chipset NF4 I believe. I even have the μGuru panel hanging around for it. But the Audiomax soundcard is dead IIRC...


Either way, I have a few oddball motherboards around that I could try it out on. I have an RD480 Sapphire motherboard with white PCB, but it needs caps and probably wouldn't be worth the bother

Thanks for confirming and for the link, seems like a good site to keep saved. May just pick up another pair of 1gb sticks if found cheap enough shipped. As far as the gold vx, I actually won that many years ago in contest when they were brand new and the nostalgia kills me with them so I'm not selling them.. yet. thumb.gif

Unfortunately my 2.75ghz OC finally locked up so I' dropping it back down to 2.6ghz. Can't complain considering the board is 11 years old and i'm oc'ing via software.. Ironically I have more fun tweaking & gaming on this thing than my main rig that can handle 98% of games maxed at 4k as is... ah well.

Might just need to reapply paste Solocam, there is TIM under the ihs too that could be hindering thermal transfer.

I always had more fun tinkering with 939

Is this a serious threat? How applicable is it to consider ALL the TIM on ALL these chips are bad after all these years? I have a hard time justifying removing the IHS for any reason... but to replace dried out nasty paste for the sake of saving my CPU, that is important. BUT, do you risk killing your CPU for the chance at increasing its longevity?

TIM does go bad , but atleast with mine it seems to have held up, at least as far as temp sensors tell me. Correct me here if wrong but I thought these cpu's were soldered anyways? At this point I'm limited by my heatsink for temps anyways as it was never really meant for heavy overclocking anyways. I'm using some gelid extreme gc on it for TIM which helps but ultimately for long term I need a better cooler. I'd like to use my FX branded AIO cooler but due to the layout of 939 vs am3+ it won't work without being creative, and creative for me usually ends up in breaking something.

A little hope for ya. I had an original H50 back in the day. It only came with AM2/3+ hardware (plus Intel stuff ya know)... Well, I got this H50 on a s939 setup back in the day. The trick is to use the AM2/3 bracket, and slightly modify it for s939...

Below is a paint pic I scratched up real quick... On AM2/3 bracket, the two posts that are diagonal to each other are almost PERFECT dead center to the s939 bracket's two posts. Mod your AIO cooler bracket and turn it, if possible, to make it mate with s939 posts... I'm assuming its just a ring with 4 screw positions... Just turn it so two of those mounts align with the s939 socket. Might have to do a little mod work for clearances and making it fit perfect, but that should be a useful start.

??



Here's the old shot of it too... Ahh, good times! My old engineering sample is in there... wish I never sold it!

Tim dries out, any movement can break that thermal bond on a heat sink, fixed many computers that were older and we're moved then ran hot. Same with gpu.

I always had temps drop noticeably by delis ding and cleaning, but I never used the ihs again after. That little seal shouldn't allow much movement, bUT it isn't a perfect seal either there is a gap. Is it enough to greatly deteriorate the heat transfer? I can't be sure. But I am more inclined to blame a failing oc that light on Tim rather than silicon degradation.

Typing this up on my phone, sorry for shortness and typos etc



Also for mounting 939, you can make a bracket or buy an adapter and run it over the top of the heat sink... I have a bracket that I mounted to my water block to use it with almost every socket cpu.. will snag pics later



Also, the CPUs are definitely NOT soldered. every delid Ive done has dropped temps, some more than others, but 5-10C isnt too uncommon. The practice can be a bit risky, but if you are careful and slow its not bad at all.

corsair and NZXT both offer brackets to fit 754 and 939

submit a support ticket or call customer service of either, and they will help you.

Most modern games on steam don't need that much horse power anyways but, when running skype and a web browser some time the CPU maxes out when multitasking and or gaming form time to time.
