Default Re-Test the greatest nF4-DFI LanParty SLI-D Spring

Since last time I post ULTRA-D in February, the click rate is too high, make me upload the photos several times.
There are still many PMs asking me to patch up the DFI testing photos.
This time I re-test the board again, but changed to SLI-D.
However, the features are similar.

Look at the packing first

Accessories 1, more than ULTRA-D is the SLI bridge
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi...st/SLID/01.JPG

Accessories 2, cables and Karajan audio module

The full face

Left-Down side
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi...st/SLID/04.JPG

Right-Down side
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi...st/SLID/05.JPG

MB upper side. The right hand side JUMP17 is for RAM using 3.3~4V. Remind you again, when you use this function, please be aware of the cooling around JUMP17

Close to DRAM

ULTRA-D Chipset
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi...st/SLID/10.JPG

Below is the testing configuration, some use the same as last time and some is new.

Congiguraion
0448SPAW 3000+.FX57
nF4-DFI LanPrtyUT SLI-D
GSkill 1GBFF.1GBGH
Leadtek 6600GTX2.6200
CWT550W.TOPOWER520W

Check out the new in BIOS which changed many times


CPU Part, mostly the same
CPU/DRAM voltage range is huge
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi...st/SLID/b2.JPG

Add any new items
Like DRAM add 0.03V
Can use Dual 6600GT Chipset VGA card
Built in MEMTEST 1.55 revision
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi...st/SLID/b3.JPG

DRAM Part
This is DFI¡¦s best part, also the most confused one.

Trrd.Twr.Twtr.Trwt setting in 2-2-1-2 is the tightest
Suggesting you to use 2-2-2-3
DRAM Drive Strength range in LEVEL1~8, every CPU and RAM combination will make the stability be different. I suggest to use LEVEL5 or LEVEL7 test in advance.

Using GSkill 1GBGH in Windbond UTT

High Voltage in best parameters

http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi.../SLID/DFI1.JPG

OC to 580/1150
http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi.../SLID/DFI3.JPG

http://shihwolf.mdorm.ntnu.edu.tw/wi.../SLID/DFI4.JPG

Latest 510 BIOS
As I know, the BIOS supports Dual Core CPU, FX57, and add some DRAM parameters
510-1

510-2

510-3


There is no doubt the DFI nF4 is the best MB for OC.
BIOS Voltage Range is so wide, and DRAM features are so wild¡K
It¡¦s far over other MBs in 2 or 3 times.
The BIOS update frequency is also awesome.
The layout and components are great as well.

In such a great MB, DRAM OC can co-operate with many memory chips or CPUs.
When you tweak your PC, parameter is not only CL2.5 4-4-8 can be.
You still need others to tie in to reach the limits.

Try to lower the jpeg quality a little bit, they're about 3Mb and at this slow rate of only 20Kb/s it takes a while to down them all.

Well, I guess I don't have the luck in getting the tight timings. Like I said I've tried all Beta Bios.

The ungrateful overclockers, I guess I am.

I like the no fuss air cool overclocking approach. Still have the 3 years old P4 with 1.3 Ghz overclock ~66% overclock and now the Venice with 50% overclock.
