    DFI NF4 Cold boot issue?

    these dfi mb can be very fickle about psu's . on my infinity 975x some of the expensive 600w psu's gave problems. hard boot ups. crashes-ect. but on a lark installed a chepo 500w roswill and the damned thing ran fine . go figure! the problem is with the v-dimm undervolting on start up most...

    New Pentium E / Celeron CPUs In June

    it would be nice to see a cheap over clocking celery--with enough beans to do some serious games and what not-- i wonder how well they would do down @ 45nm? who was that that said we would never see inexpensive Q-cores ? there on the horizion too--:eek: :cool:

    Bang for the buck overclocker?

    i would go with a 965p motherboard like the gigabyte, asus or biostar with the e4300 because the 965's have much more mature bios . there seems to be some bios issues with the 650 series with the e-4300's--although the nf-650s will get full support for the e-4300 series after a bios update or...

    Budget E4300 moderate overclock board?

    you could try the old "boot with a 1.8v stick of ram --set the v-dimm to 2.1v--power down--swap in the 2.1v ram sticks trick on it" --rather than shit canning everything and starting over--:eek:

    DFI NF4 Cold boot issue?

    i've built a number of ultras--some were super PITA about psu's . just because you tried a new psu with enough amps/watts isn't a sure thing with the dfi's. i also had one that the bios chip died in--just before the bios chip conked out the mb was having a hard time starting up . you...

    What To Do?

    help, i cant decide on a mobo

    i would go with the ds-3 . the biostar t-force may be a good mb as well. --the best mb is usually the least expensive one that can do everything you need it to.:cool:

    Full 2 x 16x sli?

    this mb is a 65o chip set with the older 570 stuff thrown in to get the 16x-16x sli . it might be a good mb--sort of fits in between the regular 8x-650 and the expensive 680i .:cool:

    Ordered an Asrock 775Dual-VSTA and..

    i am running this mb along with a e-6400 and 2 gig of samsung ddr-400 . it is a pretty nice mb for the $$$. the ddr-400 runs very well--about like ddr-2-667 run with some tight settings . i may even try the e-4400 in it in a month or two. it's stable when set up proper. my only gripes about this...

    Asrock 775Dual-VSTA

    i have one of these i got of the egg open box for $26 shipped . it's a decent mb. it can over clock a little but runs out of steam around 300fsb with a core 2. it is a little tweeky if over clocking . it is the ideal mb if your going to run ddr-400 with a agp card . it is also OK with "most"...

    Best, most cost effecient LGA 775 Motherboard?

    for the money a ds-3 or s-3 in 965p are about tops-- the biostar t-force 965pt could be a good mb as well but i haven't built one yet . i bought a s-3 months back --when they were cheeper than the ds-3 series . for overclocking it has been a great mb--esp for the $116 price i got it for...

    Super-Budget Intel Mobo Suggestions

    well if you get a via 775 lga core 2 motherboard . you can run a core 2 6000 series or e-4300 and use regular 184 pin ddr 400. which would have an additional savings --no expensive ddr2 ram required. i would think this is a option if you have 2x512 of ddr-400 or 2x1g ddr-400 layng around ...

    Are these e4300 chips any good?

    i think whats going on is that the e-4300's are tossed off the same fabrication as the other core-2;s but what happens is that the marginal and over production chips end up being converted over to e-4300. so you get a few good cores that were from 6300's and 6400's but you also get some...

    Biostar Tforce 965PT - Good value mobo?

    if you have to make 500fsb it's going to be just luck of the draw with any of the above mentioned mb's. so the concept of running 500fsb is sort of iffy. a more realistic goal would be more like 450-475+fsb . most decent 965p's can hit these speeds without a super human effort or expense. my...
