    This is the link below about Opteron 185 and FX64-60.

    Apparently the two chips are the same, so it is the reason why I wonder if a 185 could fit on my 939cpu board on my K8Upgrade-1689 because it accept FX64-60...

    AMD Dual-Core Opteron 185 - OSA185DAA6CD (OSA185CDBOX)

    I need your opinion about this,

    Thank-you.

    My opinion huh? Well, in just now jogging down memory lane there were some issues when the Opty 1xx series first came out that the then current BIOSes on enthusiast MB's(not server MB's) either didn't support them, partially supported them, and some even fully supporting them.

    Before leading you astray, I would much rather you contact ASRock Tech Support using THIS link and inquire if the 185(or any Opty 1xx !) will be recognized and be fully functional when used with the 939CPU Board and K8Upgrade-1689 combo/trio that you intend.

    Ok,
    it support Opteron 175 according to Asrock Website, there is a list below the K8Upgrade-1689 motherboard listing all the cpu elligible with this mobo, the 185 is not listed however.
    I have ordered the 175 below:
    AMD OSA175DAA6CD - 2.2 GHz 2MB Socket 939 Opteron 175 CPU Processor

    I am waiting it!
    AMD Athlon 64 3700+ socket 754 / K8Upgrade-1689 + 939cpu board / 2Go DDR400 / ATI HD4650 1Go DDR2 / Win XP SP3 32 bits.

    Ahhhh, that's where you were referring to concerning 939 CPU compatibility, the motherboards CPU Compatibility page. hehe, I must have spent 2hrs trawlling ASRock's international sites looking on their 969CPU Board's pages for where it was you were referring.


    Come back and let us know your progress.

    I have recieved my mobo from Australia, a Asrock 939A8X-M, but the problem is the battery on this mobo, it was down. When i have flashed the latest bios from Asrock, the computer refused to boot, even if the flashing was ok.

    So, I am looking for a 939 motherboard again on Ebay and I am looking to buy a new chip for my mobo, it is about $13 each.

    The computer refused to boot because the chip is bad. I have cleared the CMOS, changed the battery, but anything resolve my problem.
