I believe so but you have to know what pieces to look for in getting it done right.

Haven't messed around with my 939 stuff for awhile now but not going to toss any of it since it's already here and paid for.
Some of it I can never replace if I did sell it off or just toss it, that's how it goes nowadays.

I'm just gonna enjoy it as I please.

Indeed. The past few years has seen a massive resurgence in people looking for 939 and other "retro" hardware in general. It's getting harder and harder for me to do 2000s builds for affordable tinkering with the soldering iron. Most ebay sellers are asking hundreds for DFI Lanparty NF4 boards alone and FX chips are insane.

I just grabbed an auction for 3 9800 GTX+ as well, G92 based GPUs will probably be out of reach for people like us soon too, unless you're willing to spend modern hardware prices which to me is ...nah...

Holy! What a blast from the past!
It was neat to see this thread pop up on the Latest Discussions list again. I first started posting here when I was learning how to upgrade my S939 system 12 years back in 2007. I recently pulled an old poopy wifi PCI card from my very first genuine gaming rig with the Opty165/A8N32 mobo setup that's on the members list. I can't believe the CPUz validation link still works (3ghz! Yeah!). I converted the system into an htpc back in 2009-10, used it for about a year and have carted it around from apartment to apartment until my, now, wife and I bought a house. It perpetually hibernates in the basement until I can think of a use for it. I can't find the heart to dispose of the grizzled veteran... perhaps I should mount the motherboard and cpu in a frame and mount it in my gaming room??

Thanks for this, guys.

I see a few older faces in here still. Hi guys!

It's actually kinda funny, me and my business partner (also from OCN) are actually buying a ton of 939 gear lately, Socket A gear, and other old stuff like that. My sig rig is nearly up to date, except CPU and RAM (Core 2 Duo e6550 at stock and 3GB generic mixed RAM atm). And honestly I'm perfectly content with an old rig still. I missed my old Windows XP games lol.

This all started because I wanted to build the ultimate Socket A rig. Athlon XP 3200+ M, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400 (because its my old sticks that do DDR600), and a Radeon 9800XT with a couple Cheetah's or Raptors in RAID0. I ended up just re-using what I had laying around, my buddy decided to go to the bay and order everything he could find for good prices lol.

I definitely miss my old golden Opteron 165. Anybody have any idea where that went? I sold it to somebody in here from Canada with my A8N32 I believe. Would LOVE to have that back, really regret selling it now.

Keeping my 165 because it is the golden one out of all.
I rarely run it but when I do, it's awesome and I'm still blown away by how good it is.

I believe somewhere in this thread it was mentioned who it was that got it. You'll have to look back to the time it was sold to find out.
Dunno when that was so I'll have to let you check it out Pio.

Come to think of it, I'm sure I was getting PM notifications in my email and I'm sure it would've been discussed via PM at one point so I can probably start my search there!

What kind of OC did you achieve on that Opty 165? I've been considering getting one along with a better suited 939 board just for the fun of it, but things are getting too expensive lately.
