    I tried MyGuard, but hated it..The programs far too ugly and clunky, and compared to SpeedFan not near as useful - not to mention that god-awful telephone ringing warning tone when it detects a sensor out of range (that can't be turned off!)..

    SF does fan control, SMART readings/HDD temp readout, customizable temp readings (handy for the eVGA board that reads 5-15c off actual), it also does logging (missed anything important?)..It may not read voltages (on the NF41), but that's what my DMM is for, and CPU-Z if I really need to check out the vCore. About the only thing I would add to it would be temp readouts for the graphics cards (and fan control for those that can do it, ie: NOT most 7900gt's).

    Nothing happened. They're too busy with the new NF47 and all the 7900 issues.

    How about fixing this boards problems before starting on the 7900's problems?

    Are they going to release the next gen of cards and forget about the 7900's problems?

    I have a SATA hard drive, does it matter which channel I use when I'm overclocking this board? Thought I read somewhere that you had to use a certain channel when your board was overclocked.

    What do I have to do to get my board to OC - every time I try it screws up- on my old Asus a8v deluxe rev.2 (awesome board) I had to lock the pci/agp frequencies by changing what they were set to in order not get a failed OC. now is there something like that for this board that I missed?

    The PCI/AGP clock is always locked on the NF41 board. So you dont need to do anything just overclock it.

    It's time to resurrect this thread because EVGA released a new BIOS on 8/23/06 for the NF-41 board. I haven't tried the BIOS yet but it IS official and not beta. Get crackin'! :D

    its the Beta that was out a few months ago. Its now named E06

    They modified the Idle Cycle Limit drop from 16 to 256. Cant remember if any other ajustement was made.Look with A64 tweaker and you will see before the update and after what exaclty changes were made.

    I want to upgrade my heatsink with the XP-120 or the SI-120.

    Question is does it fit our board A1 ? Do I need a backplate for both of them to mount it on our board. I know the SI-120 comes with a new K8 SM to mount the SI-120 on the board.

    Any suggestions appreciated
