AmericanLoco I still have my Opteron 165. I had a weird RD480 ECS motherboard that wasn't super good - but it ran 300x9 24/7 for many years at stock volts! Never really tried to push it any higher than that. I'd love to resurrect this chip with a proper board some day.

Serious_Don Sick giveaway.. tempted since I currently don't have a 939 rig... got a CPU and some DDR with it?

if nobody jumps on this, I'll probably take it and relive the 939 days

cdoublejj If this forum isn't dead, the first person to cover shipping can have this Asus A8N SLI Premium, Worked/Posted years ago when last pulled from system.

What kind of overclock do you have it on? I remember 2.8ghz was doable at 1.25v and 3ghz was doable with stock volts with droop (about 1.33v). Definitely enough for htpc usage still today even with a modern gpu for offloading transcoding and 4gb ram (doable on 939), or 2gb with Linux.
That's awesome... I remember getting over 3ghz easy on it. The HTPC was a short lived project as I had only used it for maybe 8 months before moving. I carted the system around from apartment to apartment before my wife and I bought a house a couple years ago. The now cannibalized system is sitting on a shelf downstairs. I was thinking about taking the A8N32-sli board and chip and framing them for my gaming room. I loved someone's earlier suggestion of putting a name plate on it to say "I played Crisis."

It's sitting in my basement right now. I had turned it into an HTPC when I built a core2duo machine that I then held onto for more than a decade before finally building my sig rig.

Kryton This happened last night while doing a teardown of a system I was testing.
The board I had bought on fleabay and after testing showed it as being good I started the teardown. When I got to the part of removing the CPU cooler is when the unexpected happened - The lid of the CPU just popped off......... All on it's own.

The CPU itself wasn't stuck in the socket or anything.

Easiest delid I've ever done and it wasn't even planned, you can even see the outline of the bead from the lid in the glue as is.

Kryton Mine did this.

Voltage reported is accurate - That's about what I had it set for in the BIOS, obviously stable enough to complete the run.
I'll have to get after the gold one day for that bench and reclaim it.

And it did this too.
