    hi, I wonder If I can use other than Opteron 2419 on the motherboard,
    I plan to use Opteron 8431 on it, but I can not find the CPU support list for this specific motherboard.
    thank you

      I have open the bios… only CPU id, no CPU name

      I found a system with this board and two 8439’s in it. I couldn’t get it to start up, but maybe those processors would work on it.

        Good information, thank you.

        I ordered 6 x 2419EE on ebay for €33 + shipping

        TPC to reduce

        If anyone is need of 2419EE’s or compatible RAM (DDR2 667MHz ECC Registered 2GB), I have many extras I no longer need… just ping me.

        Also, if any of you are building clusters, an effective technique to avoid racking/casing is to use hex standoffs between multiple motherboards. Hex standoffs are available on Amazon, Mouser, Digi-Key, etc.

    Good stuff. I like the passive heatsinks. Where did you find them?
