    I have noticed that there isnt a S939 club for current and former S939 users. So I figured I would make one.

    To be a member of this club, you should have at least:

    No spamming and feel free to share your knowledge/experience amongst the community!

    Oh, and if there are a considerable amount of people who join this "club" someone please feel free to make a userbar sig pic.

    My system is a bitch to OC and I've been pretty slow with OCing AMD CPUs.
    My system is stable at 2.5Ghz, 2.64Ghz is fine for bench testing.
    Gaming it can crash to windows.

    Rawr...

    <---- points to specs :)

    (soon to change tho, bye bye 939, you have served me well for longer than I had expected, since the days when dual cores were unheard of and the x800 was hot toast that everone wanted a piece of)

    AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 Stock 2.2 running at 2.5. Overall s939 has kicked its fair share of ass in games and beanchmarks alike. Viva la s939:rockout:

    yeah, athlon, if you don't like a club, DON'T GO INTO IT, and don't TROLL in the club [which you seem to do]

    Just upgraded to 939 after my brothers AXP system needed a new board and had to give him mine as good AXP boards go for lots of money on ebay! So was actually cheaper to go 939! So far O/C my chip to 2.7 on stock volts from 2.4. So plenty more to go I think! :D

    Thanks! :D I've been trying to find stuff out about my board and overclocking. Turns out it's pretty poor. Apparently it doesn't have PCI lock (but does have AGP lock) but been unable to confirm this. So I'm pretty much at my limit if this is true (37.5MHz). Haven't managed to find anything yet that reliably reports my PCI clock speed. Tried clockgen, everest ultimate, systool, amd overdrive, and a couple of versions of sisoft sandra to no avail. :banghead:

    Is your Ram set at 1T or 2T?

    As that is the way it is supposed to be. If you run 2 stix the controller on the CPU has no issues with 1T timings. When 4 stix are loaded on the controller it is very stressful and the way it compensates is to run them at 2T.

    So in simple terms the mobo and CPU are doing exactly as they should, no worries!


    And i do honestly believe that Athlons "pooping" in here is based on the fact that there is huge amount of 939 info in the AMD overclockers club, as that is what it was based on. Then of course as more people added AM2's to the lineup, of course they were added as well. In the future I wouldnt be surprized to see a rebirth of that club as the Phenoms start being worked over!

    That's not top of the line...
    :(

    I have seen a top of the line system, and it's an Intel setup. Don't remember specs though....

    hey erocker...have you tries CAS3 and running a 180 divider to see if you can gain on benchies? Should get you into the 270-275MHz range on your RAM
