Default $20 later...

And this shows up on my door step 4 days later.


ASRock K8Combo-Z ULi M1689 Socket 939/754

Bought from here:
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?inv...O-Z-BO&cat=MBB

The price has gone up $5 since I bought it, and it's out of stock now.

Gonna get a 2nd system up and running soon.

$20, can't go wrong!

I had to adjust all the jumpers to set it to 939 mode. By default it's at 754.

I've actually seen that board in person. At first I didn't see the other processor, so I was kind of in shock. Seems pretty dependable from the little I worked on it.
