    Has any bios subsequent to 704 come out recently?...

    Has any bios subsequent to 704 come out recently? I'm loving 704-3. It allows these 2x1GB Ballistix to run at 280 Mhz 3-3-3-8-1T at 2.67V and 290 Mhz ast 2.77V without having to wade through a myriad...

    Man, I don't need to see this. I also just ordered a set that should be here Thursday or Friday. That, having been said, I'll be happy with stable performance at 250. The tighter the timings, the...

    Good Grief, you actually want to throw more that 1.67V at that (not-cheap) San Diego? Even with the Vapochill, I would not do that other than for a brief moment to see how high it would go, then back...

    that's interesting. I only see that issue using 1.9x and 1A3 bioses. Either 9,10,or 11X250 1:1 runs stable for me using 1.80 bios. These NF3 Ultra boards are a walking contradiction. :)

    There's two convenient places. I'm at work, so I can't give you a picture, but look right next to the ATX connector. There is a missing electrolytic capacitor, though its location is silk-screened on...

    Naw, that's not solder, it Arctic Silver epoxy. The thermistor is mounted so that the active thermistor component on the end barely touches the edge of the core, but flatness is maintained such that...

    1) Yeah, the voltages read all fall within the likelihood of what you might see using the onboard chip. The difference is you can trust what you read with the DMM, though often they only miss one...

    Regarding the best place to get your return. As you said, close as possible to the load. Even though the chassis is grounded through 9 or 10 standoffs to the board ground plane, minute amounts of...
  9. With all due respect, I would not get that one....

    With all due respect, I would not get that one. It is scaled for measuring rather high voltage. Also, be leary of DPMs where they specify the resolution, but not the accuracy percentile. This one...

    If you rely upon an onboard voltage monitoring device, you will always be getting a subjective voltage reading. Pick up a Digital Panel Meter from a surplus house like MPJA and hard wire it. They...

    I'm a sucker for a new release. I flashed it and set it to priming before heading off to work. Will see how it's going when I get home.

    Not being too proud to try someone elses recipe, I flashed NFM180_3_1T and had a shot at your results. I was disappointed that I couldn't get more than 11x260 3X 1:1 3-3-3-8-1T, but then I re-read...

    That sure is the "Swiss Army Knife" of applications. Will it read temperatures off of the SMBus as well as the flawed Winbond 83627 so common on these motherboards?

    For those who care, here's a picture of where to read the Vagp. If you can't get your bearings from the picture, this monitoring point is once again the missing capacitor between the AGP socket and...

    If you're talking the DFI NF3 Ultra-D, going to that from the Neo2 Platinum is akin to "Jumping from the frying pan into the fire." I just tried that route. It is as screwy as the Neo2. Sure there...

    In the "Plain Vanilla" 1.90, Cool-n-Quiet is enabled. Set it to off and see if that makes your fan run full speed all the time. I disable all the temperature related features out of necessity since...

    Was that while running Prime95 Torture Large FFT's or BurnK7 ???

    I see a little voltage drop across the toroids. Remember, there is literally 7 or 8 inches of wire wound around each of them and...

    Sorry to take so long. My dog ate some of the neighbors grass that had been treated with 2-4-D and I spent the evening at the animal hospital, the cost of which would have bought me my choice of NF4...

    Unfortunately, I'm at work today, but I'll be happy to when I get home. Perhaps I can rework other pictures available online and post them.

    With all due respect, that is not the best place to read the Vcore, though it is convenient. It would be more accurate to read it on the load side of the toroidal inductors (donuts with wire wrapped...

    I was the person reporting that CPU-Z said Spread Spectrum was showing still enabled in CPU-Z. That was wrong. For whatever reason, I saw Sideband Addressing and my mind registered Spread Spectrum.

    I went to 1.90 yesterday and it ran Prime95 Torture Blend all night without a hiccup running the speeds and timings in my signature. That's a first since 1.80 would not allow 1T.

    When it's working, the Neo2 Platinum is great, but right now there are bios issues using San Diego cored processors. MSI has promised a new bios some time this month alleged to correct them. We'll...

    Boy, you guys are doing better than me. If I try to populate slots 3 and/or 4 on my neo2 Platinum, my machine wont even post, regardless of speed and memory timings.

    The system in my sig does run...
