  1. Question, what am i supposed to connect to the 2 additional (floppy & harddrive) connections. Am i supposed to hook up a hardrive and a floppy and connect to that? Cause I'm lost .. this is my PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817103937


    If you have connected from your power supply to the motherboard 4 pin molex connector (you are calling a HD connector) and the floppy 4 pin connector on the motherboard is served with the power supply floppy cable type connector you are done.


  2. Marthaias -

    I had BOOT Loop issues with two differenct DFI Nf4 Ultra D boards and NEITHER were using Kingston RAM. My RAM was Corsair C25 and G.skill 4400 LE.


    Try putting one stick of RAM in the upper orange slot DDR 2 and try to BOOT at around 225 x 10.




    Try with 1.50 v on the CPU and 2.8 v on the RAM.



  3. Different problem! You should look in the OCZ sticky thread at the top of the forum. The OCZ guys here are very helpful with these kinds of things.


    Sparx, are you sure? I'm a nice guy you know! The fellow on the eVGA forum wouldn't trade either. :-(


    It turns out that he has a SLI-DR too - I couldn't believe it.


    needmorestuff, are you gone! Are you leaving me!

    yeah I am sure, been fiddling with the ultra d's now for two months, not going to let a solid one get away.


  4. Not sure it matters because I have an Ultra D but I do have a XFX 6800 gt.


    I build my rigs in the basement and use my old CRT down there so the Nf4 ultra D was connected with the DVI to VGA adapter. I noticed this thread the other day so today I brought the rig up and attached it to the Sony flat screen directly through the DVI connector without issue.


    I shutdown the computer 4 times and it restarted without a problem. Warm reboots were done without issue as well. The max time the rig was off was only about 10 minutes.


    My video card came from Newegg as did my motherboard.


    HTH a little?

    Hope you guys get squared up soon. ;)


  5. I moved up to 265 and am prime95 testing it. I feel it might be wise to stop at 265 since I had problems with the last two boards (nf4 ultra d's) after getting to 275 or so failing with Prime and attempting without success to re-establish a stable rig back down around 265. Greed can lead to complete frustration. I hope the Venice CPU's will allow better overclocks (having the improved memory controller) on the DFI Nf4's, but right now I have no money to invest in a Venice.



  6. My second Ultra D week’s back gave me issues where it would not complete BOOT and got into the BOOT Loop cycle. Thread regarding previous board.


    Now I have a new NF4 Ultra D with a brand new pair of G.skill RAM 4400 LE and I have worse problems.


    The board (revision A00 made in Taiwan on box) came with 1/25 BIOS and I have not flashed yet, too unstable.


    I set up the board with one stick of RAM in slot #2. Set Optimized Defaults used a freshly installed Ghost image of Windows XP with nothing other than OS present.


    I moved up to 220 x 10 installed the board drivers and Nvidia video drivers after getting it to BOOT with both stick of G.Skill.


    But now I cannot get the board to BOOT any higher than 225 x10!


    Ram timings:

    200-enabled-2.5-4-8-3-7-17-3-2-2-3-3120-01-enabled ... auto-0-Level8-Level4-auto-auto-auto-Disabled-auto-auto-4bursts


    These are the timings I used in the past builds.


    I am using 1.60- 1.69 volts on the CPU and 2.7 -3.0 volts on the RAM with the same results test all combinations. Stock voltage on LDT and chipset.


    When BOOT is attempted I get a blinking cursor at the base of the screen or it gets up to the Windows logo and reboots.


    Bad CPU?



  7. Also note that I did not drop in one swoop.


    I took it down in three steps. The MOFO board is goofy.


    My ability to bring it back to life illustrates my abilities, and at the same time my insanity.



    As stated in my much earlier posts when restling with the first Ultra D you should be able to clear the CMOS and Boot a rig (to BIOS). This rig ran 269x10 priming for 95 hours before fail (I was on vacation) finished just Friday.


    It was running 265 x 10 this morning.
