My HTPC is actually on a 939 Opteron which is due to be retired.Yeah, I repurposed my i7 920 for my HTPC in 2015 when I went with the 4790K. I probably would have upgraded by now, but I had been working on my upgraded home server in 2017 when life changed for me.
My previous desktop also has a P6T Deluxe v2 + i7 970 which I thought about using to upgrade the HTPC. But now that I think about it I believe I still have my old i7 920 D0 and another x58 board in the closet. So still on the fence if I will use them to upgrade that machine or go with something that will use less power.
