    hi, i have a dead socket 939 mobo and wanna replace it with that unique asrock board.
    If anyone here using it can say its ups and down to me i would be grateful :)

    I just wanna keep on using my old X2 4200 and my 2gb ddr400 ram thats why im interested in that particular board.

    to be honest your probably better off selling what you got

    and grabbing a Athlon II x2 240 regor 2-4 gigs DDR3 and an AM3 board to be honest as that would give u a butt load more performance

    as 2 gigs DDR3 = $55
    athlon II 240 = $55
    785g AM3 board = 60

    sell the ddr400 and the x2 for a bit of change and your only out about $100 for a much faster system overall

    just thats an old old setup :toast: its lasted you good but if your gonna buy parts makes more sense to do a full swap

    i know they are old but here in north cyprus its not easy to sell computer parts second hand. I dont want to throw them away so a new mobo is the only feasible way.
    IGP of 785g is good enough too as it will be a HTPC. I got a spare 3650 or a 4850 if i ever need more power too...
    Plus uniqueness of that mobo is what attracts me :)

    hmmm in that case you will need to do alot of digging to find one or you can possibly try contacting asrock directly probably wont do much good but stranger things have worked out so :toast: good luck

    Can you buy this board anywhere? I'd buy it in a heartbeat for my Opteron 170 if it were reasonably priced.

    bump.

    I really want to know if anyone knows about this motherboard. I can't find any reviews or anything even though it supposedly has been out since fall of 2009.

    yeah i can find some on ebay.co.uk too. I will probably get one next month. Its the best option for as a replacement a8v-e cost around the same around here while having a really old chipset.
    my 4200+ did 2.8ghz on a8v-e and i am really wondering how much it will oc on this board :)

    I asked one of the sellers on the UK eBay about shipping to the US. If the conversion rate and shipping don't end up being too crazy, I think I'll pick one up!
