I can solder well, all caps look solid and i dont see anything else missing or broken loose. No pins bent touching... should i pop the heat sinks loose while i hunt for loose smds?

This was an untested board too.

Did you do a continuity test?

I resurrected my old 939 x2 4800+ a month or so ago in anticipation of the upcoming upgrade. Still wasn't certain about Ryzen at that point in time, but had collected parts for the 939 over time.

Replaced the old hipro 550W PSU w/another Rosewill IIRC 550W.

Swapped the 7600 GT KO for a 750 Ti

Upgraded the 2GB RAM to 4GB.

Has an OLD PCI ether 100Mbps ethernet card since

the mobo is some biostar(one w/XGP slot IIRC) w/nvidia chipset -> chipset ethernet would ALWAYS eventually flake out IF I could get it working at all, so I gave up on it back in the day.

Has win2k/XP/some ancient Ubuntu install I forget which ATM. I primarily ran it as a linux box w/Windows for gaming when I couldn't get stuff running under wine.

Thing was like a freaking time capsule as IIRC the PSU went sometime in 2008/9 and I got a c2d (p8600) MSI GT725(with that 4850m that was just the desktop 4850 w/slightly lower core and mem clocks) which smoked that x2 4800+ so it wasn't a priority for me to get it back up and running again, and by the time that I thought about doing something with it I went and built a 3930k/X79 system until last year that I decided even if Ryzen is a disappointment, it's time to upgrade my primary desktop anyways, so I started buying parts. (Well it started with w10x64pro and driver problems which I initially thought MIGHT also be PSU related but turned out NOT to be the case BUT I had purchased a 1kW evga g2 anyways, so I had a start of a new build and went from there, bought a case(which I opted to NOT use), memory(2x8GB G.skill, I tend to skimp a bit on memory on new builds expecting prices to drop and capacity to increase), drives, etc. just waiting to see if Ryzen lived up(I had hope since Keller was back temporarily) or a Xeon/server/workstation build of some type BUT for some reason I had purchased non-ECC memory at some point(probably a good sale 3200, 1.35V Cl16) and that kind of screwed that. (I'm even more bummed now that I see ASROCK boards at least seem to be running ECC under linux with just the R7s(probably cut down naples)).

Ah well, I digress, that's my 939 story. It lives again, and it was kind of amazing to see what I was doing frozen in 2008/9...

What cpu/stepping you got that runs 3.2ghz? The CCBWE cpus need to be very cold to run that fast, doubt even peltier will be sufficient. Best bet is CCBBE, LCB9E or LCBQE for watercooling.

I too want to try out 8gb atleast. The lanparty's are a no-go for this? I have a Abit kn8-sli, but it isn't stable much over 3ghz for some reason.

I actually got a Sempron 3200+ LEBBE 0624 the other day, thinkin it whould oc like a CCBBE dualcore.. It did not laughingsmiley.gif 2.7ghz 1.68v was the highest I got stable, which is ok I guess for a cheap sempron back in the day. I kinda wanna pop the IHS and set it up on water to see where it lands, 3ghz stable on a sempron whould be cool! (or hot) biggrin.gif
post #28565 of 28615
no go on lanpartys as far as I've been trying. I can get 4gb of ram to work on the cfx3200 I use but I have to pull sticks if I have to reset bios, so I gotta do the OC on the CPU before installing memory lol

I have an lcb9e 3800x2 that does 3.2, and a lcbqe i forget which model but I've been itching to push it.

Not that I've noticed. I assume you are referring to the SATA issues that the DFI was notorious for having. I haven't had any problems, but I have never tried running a RAID on this machine. Its a little hard to overclock (a lot of fine tuning and slow increment increases), but I'm running around 340FSB at the moment, so it can run with the big boys. I've only tried the 8 GBs in it so far, but as far as I can tell if you can run 8, you can run 16.

I never wasted my time on half cache pu**y cpu's.. I mean, how slow do you want your pc to operate?

Hehe, just kidding biggrin.gif Thats quite alright actually. I never did like the lcb9e stepping tho, always seemed to be more of a hassle to get good memory oc, or some types of ram working at all. And some of them just died for no reason. mad.gif

This LCB9E is still kicking and has topped 300MHz RAM speed before, it's even went beyond 3400 MHz on chilled water so it's an obvious good one. biggrin.gif

Not all chips with that stepping are bad, in fact I've only had one that was a dog but man it was a DOG - Needed the Old Yeller treatment.
Even my Optys with it do rather well, it's all about the silicon lottery.

That is a decent speed. Was hitting that back in the day with the old s754 rig. Oh man the good times.

And look! Just about stock clocks for modern day processors XD

How is that nf4 board for 754 compared to the Lanparty nf3 board?
I remember going for records on 754 was a pain in the ass. Still have a nf3-250 and a 4000+ laying around, but mb needs a cap replaced.

How high stable 24/7 speed did you get that 4000+ (or any other 754 cpu) on water? I think I recall getting 2.6-2.7ghz on the ones I tried fully stable on water, but above that was dodgy.. Never used 754 for anything other than benching tho.
