    Socket AM2 Discussion Thread

    AG: I want to post entry to the OCDB, but I think my graphics card is kinda incapable of running 3dmark2006 because it only has 128MB on it (while the 3dm06 requires at least 256MB graphics memory). Any suggestion? No problem with 3dmark 01SE/03/05 though.

    Biostar T Force 550

    i had the same problem when i had the TF550 last time. it came out that it's just some grounding issue. it did not turned on when i put on the testing table... but no problem when i put everything inside the casing. weird.
  3. On the other note, CoolerMaster also have Hyper TX (available in AMD and Intel version) that is similar to AC Freezer64 Pro. Based on some reviews the former does slightly better than the latter, with the same price tag.
  4. It's not that it's unstable with DDR2-800 divider, rather it looks like the value 'does not really exist'....lol
  5. It overclocks just like UltraII-M2 Currently doing 2760MHz (276x10) @ 1.4V stable in SuperPi 32M and gaming (TitanQuest, CS:Source....). Somehow I cannot use DDR2-800 divider, it will automatically drop to DDR2-667, but still with my overclocked setting. Or to make it simple... I can do 2.7ghz with DDR2-667 divider, but when I set to DDR2-800, it still runs on 2.7ghz/DDR2-667. Same happens at default speed.
  6. Athlon64 heatsinks came with pre-applied thermal paste, not thermal pad. :tooth:

    Infinity nF-M2

    It's just the divider which is automatically dropped to DDR2-667, everything stays overclocked.
  8. Other than having different layout than the other nF4 AM2 DFIs (nFII-M2, UltraII-M2, SLiII-M2), it has very similar BIOS options. However, I could not get the DDR2-800 divider working. Whenever I select that divider, it will revert back to DDR2-667. DDR2-800 works well on other Infinity AM2 motherboards. I'm on 3200+ Orleans. Previously I never had any problem running DDR2-800 divider on an UltraII-M2. Could it be just a BIOS issue? There's no new BIOS update so far. The latest one was dated 07/4, but no fix issue mentioned.

    Prime crashes @ 5 1/2 hours

    I don't see any need of increasing the chipset voltage when you overclock because it doesn't have anything to do with the cpu clock or the memory clock.
  10. Updates: I have now acquired an nF-M2 mobo. My comments: - The PCI-e 16x slot is positioned on the fourth PCI bracket slot (from the top)so the graphic card is now sits low inside the casing. My 7300GT idle temp is at 46'C compare to 44'C on an UltraII-M2 with the card installed on the top slot. This is probably due to less area beneath the card. - The chipset is surprisingly running cool if you compare it with UltraII-M2. Probably because this is due to better chipset cooler (oval-shaped). However, the chipset cooler is still considered loud at full speed, but the noise is not 'whiny' compare to the old square cooler. Instead of around 60'C... the chipset now runs at slightly less than 50'C .... around 47'C to 48'C I should say. - BIOS option is 100% similar to UltraII-M2's.
  11. You might want to check the table (link) posted by Booster for DDR2 values at certain divider.

    probably u need to burn it once in a while to keep the speed stable at high speeds. about the UltraII-M2... i don't know... probably i dislike the extra pcie 16x slot since i'd never use it
  13. nF-M2 - SATA 1.5GBps (probably possible to mod to enable SATA2 3Gbps though) - only 1 PCI-e 16x slot - slightly different motherboard layout - different chipset cooler (either better than the small square of those UltraII-M2 or just the same... I don't know) - lack of on-board power/reset button. UltraII-M2 - support SATA2 3Gbps - have 2 PCI-e 16x slots (modable to SLi) - layout is similar to nFII-M2 or SLiII-M2 - square chipset cooler which is noisy and lousy Performance wise...I'm not to sure. I believe the overclocking options are similar, but the question would be the maximum Vdimm supported. I was thinking of getting this board for my new setup because it's cheaper than UltraII-M2, if it provides Vdimm at least 2.5V.

    Socket AM2 Discussion Thread

    I'm gonna ditch my UltraII-M2 and 3000+ soon... and will get the lower end nF-M2 and 3200+ (for its 10x multi) .... lol I'm crazy. My current 3000+ is weird. Last time when I had an X550 256MB, it was able to get prime stable 2711Mhz at 1.525v. But now... when I plug in my 7300GT it doesn't prime stable anymore. One thing that I noticed was Smartguardian showing +12v rail at 11.97v when I'm on the 7300GT, but it was 12.15v when X550 was running.
  15. 1:1 ratio is achievable with DDR2-400 divider but why going so low?

    DFI Infinity nF SLiII-M2

    now.... more AM2 DFI mobo coming out! DFI Infinity NF570 SLI-M2 DFI Infinity NF570-M2 DFI Infinity NF550-M2 The question is... all these three boards look very similar... in fact all of them have dual 16x PCI-E slots. hmmm, any idea?
  17. Yes.... DFI has released the SLI version of Infinity for socket-AM2. It has already been on the retail shelves in Malaysia, priced at RM430 (roughly around US$110, about the same price as UltraII-M2 when it was first released). However I just couldn't spot any significant difference that could tell how this SLiII-M2 apart from its Ultra brother. :cool: Just wonder if the DFI officials in DFI-street had got their hands on it yet? Interested to know of any changes on the board compare to UltraII besides the inclusion of an SLI bridge. p/s: CFX3200-M2 I have seen em too.... a bit more expensive compare to SLiII-M2 which is about RM580, that is about US$150. :eek:
  18. queue bypass max async latency idle cycle limit :tooth:
  19. Any modded BIOS yet? The BIOS options could've been better. Hopefully someone will mod it and add more extra memory timing options.
  20. no you're wrong! most people who opted for DFI because they wanted the extra memory timings! :tooth: anyway.... i found that DFI's options are lesser than Biostar's TForce. DFI missed stuffs such as async latency, Tref, idle cycle, queue bypass, and some other drive strength options

    Is my CPU locked?! WTF?

    are you kidding me? all CnQ capable AMD processors are multi unlocked downwards. probably ConiKost had a defect cpu. have you tried installing it on a different mobo?
  22. err... via on-board jumper? it was printed on the board itself

    Which AM2 Heatsink for UltraII-M2

    requote my post.... anyone?

    Which AM2 Heatsink for UltraII-M2

    Regarding BigTyphoon VX, will the heatpipes interfere with the 1st and 2nd DIMM slots? Just wondering...because I read somewhere that mentions about clearance issue.
  25. I want to know whether Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX will block the first two DDR slots on UltraII-M2? Somebody mentioned that he had clearance issue, but need somebody else to reconfirm.
