Hello, OCN!

This thread is the Socket 939 Appreciation Club and Knowledgebase. thlnk3r and I have been thinking about starting this project for a long time now, and we've decided to finally share it with OCN. As the name indicates, it's a thread all about AMD's Socket 939 platform; it is meant to serve several purposes.

First, it's an informal gathering place for OCNers who have a true appreciation for AMD's classic S939 platform. So, anyone who has ever run a S939 Opteron, Athlon64 FX, Athlon64 X2, Athlon64, or even Sempron is welcome to join! In this thread, we'll hopefully have fun conversations about our beloved S939 CPUs, motherboards, and chipsets. We don't even have to restrict our talk to just about S939 while in here, too; all we ask is that we all have a true and mutual respect for each other.

Second, it's also designed to be a repository of S939 experiences. As time goes by, we hope this thread grows into an eminently useful knowledgebase that will help anyone who wants to use and overclock on a S939 system. We'll be including links to OCing techniques to this initial post imminently, once we get the ball rolling, but most of the really great stuff will come from YOU, as nothing is better than actual experience. I personally believe that there are some techniques and philosophies that hold true not just for S939, but for any other platform as well, so this will hopefully be a resource that can inspire solutions for other (non-S939) users too.

Finally, it's a gesture of goodwill. thlnk3r and I have been lucky to have been part of the OCN family for a significant time now, so this is one way for us to give back to the community.

How do you become part of this group? Simple: Just provide a CPU-Z link (preferable) or a CPU-Z screenshot of a S939 system, either in this thread or a PM to either me, thlnk3r, BlackOmega, Hueristic, or N2Gaming, and we'll add you to our roster as soon as possible.

Of course, everyone is welcome to contribute to this thread too.

So, thanks for everything! Let's all work together to make this good.

Great idea!

Here's my OC'd 4600.

nategr8ns 02-13-2008 10:55 AM

Slight overclock from 2.4ghz
stock cooling (looking for a TRUE or IFX-14 atm)

thlnk3r 02-13-2008 11:46 AM

Arg, I need to find my stable 3Ghz OC but here is my 3.2Ghz OC at 1.475 volts(not sure if it's Orthos stable or not):

Joe, I've always enjoyed reading these guides, perhaps we can add these to our knowledgebase:

pioneerisloud 02-13-2008 11:52 AM

I'd also like to join....two different processor CPUz validations can be found in my sig.

And where's the member list? I'd better be some sort of elder here mister!

crashovride02 02-13-2008 12:01 PM

Attachment 65867

Maybe someday I can hit 3GHz stable!!

txtmstrjoe 02-13-2008 12:09 PM


pioneer, you kill me!

Will add you to our roster immediately.

Same goes out to crashovride02.

A quick missive: If anybody's got any helpful links they would like to suggest, shoot me a PM and I'll see if it passes muster. I'll post the link(s) as soon as possible.

Thanks, y'all!

pioneerisloud 02-13-2008 12:10 PM

Absolutely....will do!

And how come I'm just a "standard" member now? Grrrr....I'm going to file a complaint with the manager! I've been telling you guys we need a better 939 club.....jeez! What more do you need from me???

I'd also like to say.....maybe we should steal a few of the Grand Poobah's idea's in the old thread....such as the tech document links for the temperatures. Those were really handy. Just my $0.02.

Now...I gotta ship out that stupid freakin dead 7900GS XT back to XFX before I lose that $5 to yet another pack of cigarrettes. My last $5....RMA that stupid dead on arrival card.....or smokes? Think I choose RMA, its better for my health !
