939 Board

Hey everyone I have been out of the OC'ing scene for a while and just came into some free system, the board is dead though and it needs a graphics card. But it has decent memory and CPU. I need some recommendations on a good socket 939 board that has plenty of BIOS options for overclocking. Right now I am looking at ASUS I have had good experience with their board before but I am open to suggestions.

Thanks.

the question isn't what board, its where to get it....
Hard to find Socket 939 these days. Nothing on newegg.com
ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe looks like a good one, but good chance finding an affordable one.

My plan was to get a board from ebay, more dangerous but good price.

I've used a number of 939 boards, some standouts that I've owned, DFI NF4 LanParties, Asus A8N's and Biostar TForce 6100. I still own the Biostar and it functions just like the day it was new running some old-school Bh-5 and a Venice core at 2.9.

I can recommend the A8Ns as well, I have two A8N-SLI's and an A8N32-SLI, all running Optys and they all run great. Never a problem, and good overclockers. My favorite ASUS boards ever until the newer 775 I'm running now.

My MSI board is still running strong! Only thing I've had to change was the fan on the north bridge. Other than that, LOTS of options to overclock.
