I had just gotten into OCing at that time, and had upgraded the system from a P4 Prescott, Asus P4S8X-MX mobo, and GeForce 6600 AGP (but kept the RAM, monitor, hard drives, and tower). I learned so much about OCing with that AMD rig, and I pretty much owe all of my knowledge today about OCing to that rig. I sold it on eBay for about $1,100 back in early '06. I miss it because you know, every computer, when you build it from the ground up and really get a feel for it, has a sort of character of its own and that tough son-of-a-***** really knew how to throw down. I pushed my AMD X2 3800+ to 2.6 GHz, dropped the RAM down to 333, and it ran silky smooth by yesterday's standards. It took a while for me to learn how to OC but that rig had all of the potential to really allow me to get the hang of it and for me to experience the awesome rewards of true OCing.

So, for all it has done for me, I am here to show my appreciation for the AMD socket 939 builds.
These S939s really do teach you a lot of techniques that you can still use today, don't they? And I agree with you completely: They're still so much fun to overclock and can still perform well enough even compared to all but the very best (quad-cores) out there.

If you still have a CPU-Z validation link or screenshot somewhere, we'll add you to our roster; after all, it's clear that you have a very deep appreciation for Socket 939, and that's what this club is all about.

(If you don't have a CPU-Z validation anymore, well... I'll talk to thlnk3r and pioneerisloud and see if we can add a new "category" to our roster: S939 Nostalgic Members.)

Thanks for dropping by, sgtdisturbed47! We are honored by your presence.

While my 3700 wasn't my first OC build, it was definitely my favorite and I learned more from it than any other build. That CPU is bulletproof. It outlasted RAM, a GPU, a PSU failure, and a mobo, it's been overvolted and overheated countless times, and it's still kicking today. Paired with an OC'd 7900GS, it still beats my current sig rig in most games.

Really?

Most impressive.

My first CPU was an Athlon64 3700+ San Diego; it wasn't the first chip I overclocked, though. It's marvelous and resilient, and it has been passed on to two other users near and dear to me: I gave it to my dad when I upgraded his rig (from an A64 3200+), then I gave it to my best friend in the world Rick when my dad got my X2 4400+ Toledo (which was the very first chip I ever OCed).

That Sandy might be making its way back to me soon; I'm giving my best friend a new dual-core CPU imminently.

I'll have to see just how far that San Diego can go...

Well, it likely will, but not anytime soon, I reckon.

Especially since we'll do our best to keep it alive.

DUNC4N, would you like to be added to our group? You're definitely invited!

The funny thing is I gave my 939 rig to my wife, then later on built my sig rig to give to her so I could have the 939 back

I use the sig rig for most stuff because it's in my bedroom, but I play most of my games on the 939.

Hope you find one!
Thanks to a bit of good luck, I did. . The guy who sold me the Opteron had one of those tforce boards on ebay, and I almost had it until some guy who was camping the auction sniped it from me in the last 30 seconds. Yeah, right about then my blood was boiling.. but fortunately the guy had a second one he listed on Buy It Now where the buyer didn't pay for the item.. So since i was the second highest bidder on his auction, he offered it to me, and I'm currently working out payment with him.

It definitely is a great board, and probably the best matx 939 board you can buy, so I am definitely excited to test it out and OC with it . It's in no way going to replace my Lanparty UT nf4 Ultra-D (i love that board), but it's going to be the root of a great lan machine .

Don't you just love it when things work out, even if it's completely due to luck?
