939 or 370

Both boards were given to me, I have enough parts to put one system together, at no cost. Thought I would then give it to someone who can't afford a computer. Not sure which board would be the best to use, 939 is MK8-939A, 370 is CUV4X-DLS

In that case,

the board you keep is the one you have the CPU for; although I might like the Asus board better (which is for amd cpu).

Go with the one that

You have the parts for and works. The 370 is dusty old but may be ok. The 939 is sadly from the years we saw BAD CAPS (see google) in too many systems which explains why those (along with too many other boards) found their way to the free bins or gifted.

There is nothing that says either is any good so go with which works and you have the parts.

That's very true

That's very true. Just go with what you have.
