I'm in a smiliar boat grabbed mine from mwave for $305 shipped. It shipped that day and the next day they were out of stock and didn't even have them listed on their site anymoreVengance_01 said:That really sucks, but Glad I got mine. Ordered from newegg on wednesday afternoon, shiped the same day, and on thursday they were out of stock. I agree, this was a brief XMAS Gift from AMD. My 165 is primming at 2.6GHZ Dual prime BTW, and only at 1.53 volts and only paided 289$ which it stomps the X2 3800. Good for all that got one, and well for those who wanted one, you snoose you loose.
robberbaron said:Some are, but that doesn't mean that they necessarily know what they're talking about. There is no such thing as a "server" 939 board. 939 just isnt a platform meant for servers. A Lanparty board is just as much of a server board as, say, some Tyan 939 board (if one exists.) Neither could take registered ram or multiple CPU's.
wizzackr said:now this gets confusing. Because some people said the 165 would be discontinued I thought I'd best contact the shop where I ordered mine toady, double checking if their online availability was correct and they actually had them in stock. The guy at the store said they ran out of CPUs today (just my luck) and that he would contact AMD Germany to check if the thing was discontinued or if they were still getting them.
A minute ago he called me back and said AMD confirmed they were still in volume production and they were NOT discontinued but just very hard to come by as demand was immense (no shit). Weired... Whatever, he said I'll have mine in max. 10-14 days from now, which is ok for me. As for the whole discontinued issue - I have no clue...

Mine should be in this week, I'll let you know how it goes.
