    Best Sound Drivers

    I don't think the drivers in the first link you listed are the right ones for the NF4 Karajan Module. If you want to download the correct drivers from realtek, they are located here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dlac97...8&Software=True It looks like they are the same as the ones on the Majorgeeks site.
  2. Anybody have an idea of why CAS 2.5 isn't working?
  3. The part number is NF4U91-100R.A02
  4. I can't get mine to work with CAS 2.5 either. CAS 2 works. I've tried both the 510-3 & 704-2BTA BIOS and neither one worked.
  5. See this thread for a diy solution: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12309

    The ULTIMATE MBM 5 Settings/Help Thread

    Works great with version 5. I would like to see the core and memory speed like with the rivatuner plugin if it's possible. Thanks for the great work _xhp_ & soundx98
  7. I had this problem too. I was using a winnie and then switched to a venice and C&Q quit working. So I updated to the 510-3 BIOS, but I don't think that it worked either. I then uninstalled the old C&Q drivers, and downloaded the latest C&Q drivers from the AMD site and it worked. The only thing that doesn't work is the Powernow! Dashboard software. Get the new drivers here: http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/Techni...71_9706,00.html

    Heatspreaders and RAM sinks

    I think that if you're wanting to add ramsinks, then the best way would be to take the heat spreaders off, clean up each ram chip, and put a ram sink on each ram chip. That way the heat will be transfered through just one layer of themal tape. I don't think you'll get much more heat transfer by adding the ramsinks on top of the heat spreaders. Have you taken a look at this article: http://www.bigbruin.com/reviews05/nf4therm...ndex.php?file=2 Toward the bottom of the page the ram they have running at 300 MHz (DDR600) is not that hot (topping out at 38.3°C). Of course they do have the XP120 blowing down over the ram.

    DFI Optical SPDIF Bracket?

    look here to make your own optical output connection: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread...5954#post115954
  11. I have a home theater receiver that I wanted to send digital audio from my PC. My receiver has one RCA coax input and two optical toslink inputs. The RCA coax input is occupied by my cable box so I couldn't use the RCA digital output from my DFI NF4 Ultra-D. Sure, I could have got a RCA coax --> optical toslink converter, but who wants to do that when you can DIY. I noticed that my DFI NF4 Ultra-D has pin-outs for SPDIF in/out. They are shown in the attached .pdf from the manual. It is jumper J3. So all I needed to find was an optical toslink transmitter. After much googling, I found this Canadian website: http://www.sysconcept.ca/ They have a toslink optical transmitter for $4.99 USD http://www.sysconcept.ca/product_info.php?...products_id=159 And a toslink optical receiver for $4.99 USD http://www.sysconcept.ca/product_info.php?...products_id=157 They also have a wiring diagram for the transmitter and receiver (see the bottom of the page for the transmitter) http://www.sys-concept.com/toslink_receiver.htm Mobo Connection J3 Pin 1 = +5V Pin 2 = No Connection (Key) Pin 3 = SPDIF OUT Pin 4 = Ground Pin 5 = SPDIF IN Optical Transmitter Pin 1 = Ground Pin 2 = +5V Pin 3 = SPDIF Signal Use the attached wiring diagram to connect the pins. A 0.01 µF capacitor is used between the ground and +5V wires as a filter. I used an old audio cable that connects CD-Roms to Sound Cards for the wire. Good Luck. If you have any questions let me know. Note: you probably could use the toslink receiver linked above and Pin 5 from the mobo to get digital audio in to your PC, but I haven't tested this since I don't need it.

    Bios settings spreadsheet

    The spreadsheet could be made better by putting drop-down boxes with each option for each setting. My board is in RMA process right now, or I'd do it my self. If someone has a list of each option for each setting, then I could do it.
  13. Directron has the Alpha PEP66T for $8.99 if anyone is interested. I bought one, and I am going to try to make a copy of the HeatSLink. I hope GXP345 won't mind. Forgot to post the link: http://store.yahoo.com/directron/pep66t.html
  14. What did you use to attach the HeatSLink to the motherboard? It doesn't look like you reused the white push-pins.
