What motherboard to get for AMD Opteron CPU?

Yes, like the title suggests, I need assistance in finding a motherboard that supports AMD Opteron's. Socket 940, basically. I haven't found anything at the moment, so I was hoping you guys could help.

Oh, woe is me, lost traveler of the east.

Any help will be appreciated. =D

Any reason for Socket 940? I ask because I just picked up a combo from Monarch Computer Systems, which is a Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, and a Opteron 165 Dual Core. I am running at 9x220 with it right now using 1T even with Samsung CAS3 ECC memory.

Is there anything wrong with a S939 mainboard? If I bought one would I feel behind the curve if the AMD M2 socket mainboards became available early next year? Probably.

Do Opterons require ECC Memory? I plumb forgot.

Okay.

First thing - I realised that the AMD Opteron 148 is Socket 939. My bad.

Second thing!

AMD took the Opteron's off the shelves because of the O/C potential on them. I need to get a hold of one, quickly, otherwise AMD are going to tweak them, thus lowering the overclockability. Any ideas where I can get a hold of one?

Mate,

Several good server boards for S940 are available. I would pick Supermicro over the other manufacturers. Known for their stability and decent BIOS options, they are a safe bet.

Thanks for them links, man. Appreciate it.

Just a quick question, however. These are the original opterons, correct? The ones that were before AMD took them off the shelves?

No idea - all i know about it is that this is where I got my 144 from and its running well above stock no issue.
My MB and 6800 will probably be changed before this - im that happy with it.

Welcome to AOA Forums, Super Nade!
If nothing has changed in the quality of Supermicro's mainboards over the last three years, they are the best.
