    DFI LAN Party Model NFII Ultra B VDIMM mod

    Following a request from Iolao I knocked this one up.

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...749#post307749

    See the above lengthy thread for more info on the board.


    The Vdimm is regulated by a simtech SC2616 the same as used on several other modern boards including the Epox 4PDA2+ rev2.

    http://www.semtech.com/pdf/sc2616.pdf

    The successfull mod for 4PDA2+ is detailed here.
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...threadid=23714

    So the same pryncipals should apply.

    The FB mod is pin1 to ground using 200k VR on 4PDA2+, resistance values may differ on this board so please take your time when turning the pot.

    Question is where can you solder onto pin 1 (as this is an MLP package) This is pretty easy as with the excelent pics ive been sent we can easily follow the trace from pin1 to a SMT resistor on the board that we can easily solder onto.

    The below mod is UNTESTED and should not be attempted unless you fully understand what you are doing.
    I would appreciate if somebody could tripple check that I have got pin1 correct, and that my other logic is sound.

    how much can you raise your vdimm after the mod? it's based on +3.3 like other board or on +5v??

    I think its based upon 5v.. so more than 3.3v is possible although not necicaraly safe.

    I thought this board had 3.3v vdimm as standard? THe rev b does I know for a fact!

    OIC its rev a that has 2.9v:

    What about the infinity? AFAIK its only missing RAID and post LEDs from the ultra rev b.

    930 @ 4.4 & P5WD2 (vcore + droop, mch vdd, ddr2 vdd)
    4x512 Micron D9
    7800gtx 600/1470 (vgpu + vdd)

    How much can this mod actually go upto? Are mid 3.5's unreasonable without a psu mod?
