C/P Value - DFI nF4 SLI INFINITY test
 
Since DFI build the OC King in nF4 LanParty, they launched another OC value series
in NF4.
The test in March, DFI nF4-DAGF, is one of this. The price is under100USD.

This SLI version is around 140USD.
Take a look first, the same handle packing.



The accessories are all need.



The outlook



CPU and memory



2 PCI-E and 3 PCI are enough for user.



Right down corner, 4 SATA support RAID 0, 1.



PWN part is with Japanese capacitors and the others are OST.



IO



BIOS option is still the DFI strength.



DRAM from 2.5~3.2V, itíŽs advantage for Winbond OC chips.
When I tested DAGF,3.2V + GSkill GH could run to DDR480 2 2-2-5



CPU separates into 2 sections.
1st section gap is 0.15V.
2nd section is 0.3V.
Default 1.4V can over to 1.85V.






DRAM BIOS options
Keep the DFI OC standard, many options and the tuning ability is large.






Test configuration
AMD Athlon64 3000+ 0517
DFI nF4 SLI INFINITY
GSkill 1GBFF&512LA
ELSA 6600GTX2
FSP 300W



Lets look at DRAM first.
256X2 DDR600 1T



512X2 DDR600 2T



Even it cannot compete with own nF4 LanParty, 512X2 DDR600 1T standard. However, compare to the others nF4, its OC ability is going even farther.

This is SLI board, of course we have to see the SLI performance.
6600GT SLI + defaut 500/1000Mhz

3DMARK2003



3DMARK2005



CPU OC to 300X9=2700Mhz
DRAM 512X2 DDR600 2T CL2.5 3-3-6
Basic tset



Advantage:
1.CPU.DRAM voltage range wide
2.BIOS options are rich, especially in DRAM
3.nF4 chipset position can add water cooler or the others.
4.Real SLI under 140USD
5.DFI great OC ability

Disadvantage:
1.The manual is too simple.
2.Chipset heatsink is too thin.

I recommend this to budget concerned OC amateurs and SLI users.
Of course, its OC ability is wonderful.
ItíŽs the high C/P value nF4 SLI board.

PS: The temperature test software is bundled with LanParty, so the CPU temp is lower.

Price may drop to about $100, good for DFI, smart move. :)

Would you advise this board over the other dfi nf4's if it were just for overclocking?

Could you explain this a little more? I don't understand what you are saying.

Memory controller can't run at 1T as oppose to the expensive version .... his test shows 2T setting.

I guess this is what he may be referring to :)
