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
Accessories 2, cables and Karajan audio module
The full face
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
Below is the testing configuration, some use the same as last time and some is new.
nF4-DFI LanPrtyUT SLI-D
Check out the new in BIOS which changed many times
CPU Part, mostly the same
CPU/DRAM voltage range is huge
Add any new items
Like DRAM add 0.03V
Can use Dual 6600GT Chipset VGA card
Built in MEMTEST 1.55 revision
This is DFIâ€™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.
BIOS Temperature Detecting Screen
Running PI 1M in basic performance.
Using GSkill 1GBGH in Windbond UTT
High Voltage in best parameters
DDR500 2 2-2-5 3.12V
DDR550 1.5 2-2-2 3.7V
Using GSkill 1GBFF in Samsung TCCD
DDR600 CL2.5 3-3-5 2.6V Reached
Next part is 3D performance in SLI mode
Using Lreadtek 6600GTX2
OC to 580/1150
Latest 510 BIOS
As I know, the BIOS supports Dual Core CPU, FX57, and add some DRAM parameters
There is no doubt the DFI nF4 is the best MB for OC.
BIOS Voltage Range is so wide, and DRAM features are so wildâ€¦
Itâ€™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.

why did ya use the tccd instead of these bh-sticks for benching?

Nice work. Yes, it is indeed a great mobo. But currently, I have some problems related to Bios.
take the uttÂ´s, give the fx57 a push and show some more benches
i love such user-reviews!!
I love the high quality pictures and great review. Where can you get that G.Skill FF memory?
