The legend lives on as a RAID platform, Fileserver, NAS or basic officebox
13 July 2013
Summary: It's 2013. This is still a good workhorse if you need a basic machine, fileserver or NAS, because it was an absolute BEAST when it came out. Remember that it's an old board now- it is not a platform you will be building on to handle the newest games out there, but if you want to put together a file-crunching monster NAS or workhorse machine to use up the old PCI cards or tie in those firewire drives you have lying around, this veteran can handle it.
Summary: I was able to overclock this board with a AMD 64 3700+ 90nm CPU to 2.7Ghz, for over 48 hours. Heat is not a problem with a good heatpipe cpu cooler. I am however very disappointed with the cheap southbridge chipset cooler fan. After about 200 hours on time, the cooler started to whine loudly. I had to remove the top metal fan shroud to make it quiet again. If I turn the system off and reboot an hour later the fan makes the noise for another 30 minutes.
Summary: Duger bra... Chipset-fläkten skramlar och bör bytas efter 1 månad bara. socket 939 är "gammalt" och bör hellre köpa nyare AM2 istället. Köp om du får det billigt och har en s939 processor redan.
