Rare AMD CPU and motherboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So over the weekend I went to free geek to pick up some older hardware to build a system from the 2005-2006 era, and while I was there I decided to pick this up as well. That is the Asus L1N64-SLI, which was a dual socket consumer motherboard that AMD released in order to try to rush to quad core. The actual Quad fx platform didn't do to well because of the power required and it's problems with memory latency, but needless to say they're pretty dang rare. I was extremely lucky to be able to pick up a board with two CPUs from the fx-7x lineup (don't know which ones yet) for only 30 dollars.

This motherboard needs more SATA ports.  Definitely not enough!

I miss VRM heatsinks like those, with ya know, actual fins


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Yeah you didn't feel like you had to worry about thermal issues with vrms back then. Some boards nowadays make me pretty worried (mostly the lower tier ones)

Still impressive considering atleast 250W goes through those VRMs.

Even some of the mid to high end boards struggle with keeping the VRM temps in check :( It's not like good ol' Z97 when you could buy bottom teir boards and OC like the big bois. Bought the cheapest boars and it's been a very good board for overclocking, pushing my I7 4790K to a stable 5GHz with all temps in check xD

Those heatsinks are really tallbois, you can see it on the right VRM that it sticks up about as far as the CPU heatsink 🤯

That is a beautiful piece of hardware.

Now you need some OCZ sli 800mhz DDR2 and the most "dual" gpus out there, a pair of 7950 gx2's for 4 way sli
