    Winflash

    It is not just with DFI boards.. It happens with all boards.. sometime or another.. It is just safer to flash from Dos.. Either from a CD or floppy.. Why it is on the official site.. Only they have that awnser

    Noob question

    Nothing is garrenteed.. But the memory should run at its reccomended timmings at that Mhz.. But you also have to factor in your CPU's memory controller.. It may be capable of handling it it may not.. Start at stock and work your way up.. Besides thats where the fun is

    Is very simple.. If you are haveing errors.. And you system is not stable.. You cant count on the Bios information being correctly writen to the bios

    NF3 Ultra-D 939/AGP

    I am still using 705 to me it has been the best..
  5. If you have a extra PSU.. try using it to power the new Sata drives.. If this doesnt shut the computer down. it is PSU related. If not try the drives in a freinds computer if possible.. if it shuts that computer down . it is the Drives.. if not it will be a mother board issue
  6. Has the sata and controller drivers on it.. Remember SATA's are hot swappable..So with out the drivers . You may want to plug in the power connectors to the Sata drives. Start windows .. then try to plug in the drives.. Then run the drivers.
  7. Did you run the drivers for sata drives . on your original DFI driver CD?
  8. As far as your G/F card touching the chipset fan.. I just raise it a little in the PCI slot,Just enough foe 1 to 2 mm clearance.. As far as the lock ups. what do you have the settings(list them if possible)? in the bios. Are they modded bios or DFI supplied bios? What are you CPU temps?
  9. Its not any taller but the diamater is larger.. you have to mod it for resistor clearance There are pictures of it in the Big 939 NF3 thread
  10. try uninstalling them all in the device manger.. then run the driver disk.. and reboot ... Sometimes that helps
  11. I have one on mine. But you have to modify it a little for clearance

    hard drives & raid - benchmark and compare!

    Yep.. IOmeter realy should be used without any data.. Except the raid aray and partition data. including O/S. Install O/S on another drive.. Then test the Object drive With IOMeter. it will only test the drive you have selected.. So if you install O/S on a slower drive the readings wont be affected.

    hard drives & raid - benchmark and compare!

    IOMeter Is a great program.. It is more acurate. But is realy better used on server setups. For it to work as designed. the drives have to be empty/clear of any DATA. As it writes the entire drive, And measures from that data

  15. Try running the new sticks with the old ones.. But use the relaxed timings of the newer sticks..( 3-4-4-8) and see if that gives better results.
