Default DFI LanPARTY nF4 SLI-DR Venus First look!!!

In Nov/Dec 2005, DFI launched ATI RDX200 and nF4 SLI EXPERT 2 great OC boards.
In 2006Chinese New Year, DFI is going to announce this 100% Aluminum Capacitors board.
As the pioneer of 100% Japanese capacitors, Venus, this new model, is the other great work!

Lets look some pics. Basically, the design is similar. The components is greater and enhanced OC ability.

Full outlook

Right down corner




Right up corner




IO and memory slots




Venus




Great Boot up screen




CPUZ info in OS







Just got it, I am still trying. First impression is the OC ability is better.
Ultra-d brought the TCCD limitation. EXPERT unleash the BH5/UTT.
What Venus Brings? Let¡¦s wait for it.


DFI strongest items: BIOS part
CPU and DRAM voltage parts are the same as EXPERT.









DARM configuration part: The most items in all brands. This is why DFI¡¦s OC is always the best.

Recommend TCCD using LEVEL3+4 UCCC using LEVEL1+1









Test configuration
AMD 939 Opteron 144
DFI LANParty UT nF4 SLI-DR Venus
GSkill 1GBFF/2GBHZ
ELSA 6600GT
MAXTOR 30GB 5400rpm
Enlight 420W

EXPERT has weak compatibility with TCCD. Cannot reach DDR550~600 with some memories.
In Venus, DFI re-layout it. And reappear the own glory of DDR600 1T!







2GB is the mainstream. Usnig 2GBHZ DDR500 3 4-4-8 to combined test.




2GB DDR600 1T 3 4-4-8 PI 32M Reached!
* OC is not in manufacturers guarantee. No matter CPU(200Mhz) / MB(200Mhz) / DRAM(DDR500). *




Venus really solves some previous issues. Bringing the OC surprise again.

Fine gift box and 1000 limited output globally. Maybe will be hard to buy it...

Advantage
1. 100% Aluminum Capacitors
2.PCI-E wider slots, better for SLI cards heat
3.Fine Box
4.DFI traditional BIOS high voltage
5.6 USB in real panel
6.Improve EXPERT weakness in TCCD and enhance UCCC

Weakness
1.High price
2.Not dual PCI-E 16X(3D performance are similar at the moment with dual PCI-E 8X)
3.RAID with SATAI 3114(nF4 built in SATAII RAID)

OSKAR hits home run again. DFI Venus break the many motherboard records.
Lets look forward to it.

That IS a camera I have my eyes on the D70s, I wish my Nikor AF 135mm lens will work with DC.
