For the last few years I've successfully run my Opteron S939, -10 idle with MCW5002-64T, Meanwell PSU and 3x120mm radiator. It's been very reliable and in use everyday, but now an upgrade is due. I have considered sticking on 939 and getting an X2 but they're pricey and second hand, and so is more ram. Also there might be too much heat from an o/c 95nm X2. I'd rather just invest in something more current for my money.

Hopefully I wanted to change just the board, cpu and ram. Do Swiftech supply the necessary components to allow reusing the tec assembly, and on a different socket, preferably AM2 please?

Any suggestions? Can someone advise me if it's possible to get a socket 775 retention mechanism for my tec cooler? I really want to continue to use it in my system. Cheers.

Hi There:

Unfortunately, we don't have an upgrade path for socket AM2 on this unit...

When Intel took over the performance crown, and stayed there, we slowed down on AMD, since demand trickled down to nothing.

Hey not sure if you ever solved the problem or not, but i came up with a few solutions once upon a time.

For adding support to this unit for am2, I made small strips of metal from my old case side panel (made a window, had some scrap)

gorilla glued three together with clamps, since the metal was so thin and weak. did another for the other side. heat shrink the middle to catch the s939 mounting bracket, and drill ap air of holes into it for the am2 mounting bolts. Worked like a charm!

For s775 mounting, I went even easier. I used a tuniq tower mounting bracket and bolted it to the top using the s939 holes n both the 5002 and the tower bracket, making them one solid unit. Bringing s478, 775, and 939 support to this old block.

This block does pretty good :P.



Unfortunately I need to have a cold plate made for me, since the old socket A with off-centered divet one is kinda fuggly after having to sand through the divet to make it useable. I could probably reuse it, btu I like my stuff to look good. and its not perfect. Good luck and p.m. me or something if you need more info or help, or if you want me to make you some brackets Lol

I assume you checked the thermal grease imprint to make sure youre getting good contact?
