    Seems Asrock are making good on their AM2 upgrade riser board.

    Doesn't seem much room for larger heatsinks! :eek:
    Although this one's on a 939SLI2-eSATA2, it should be the same concept for the 939Dual Sata2 I'd assume.

    Wonder if it'll be reasonably priced and allow some good overclocking? :D

    The socket on that card looks like s939 to me

    Nope, it's M2, I can see the extra pin in the corner.

    Looks good, but as said.......fitting a decent HSF is going to be a problem. :(

    Wow cool, looks like you ASRock guys are all set for AM2 :cool:

    Tower heatsinks should work fine, no? Because they are thin and just go straight up (i.e. straight sideways in this case!).

    Wow that wasn't what I was expeting. I thought it was gonna be an adapter for the 939 slot in there ?!?!

    Surely its easier just to get a new mobo?

    Looking at the layout of my dual sata, it will easily fit the heatsink, above the 939 socket, it seems with potentially more width than the standard board to side of case.

    This could mean larger heatsinks will be ok.

    It depends on pricing and performance really.

    If it costs a lot and doesn't overclock well, then yeah new mobo time.

    Guess we'll have to wait and see.
