  1. I've done this mod a long time ago and have been using 6600GT. My friend was upgrading and he gave me his 6600GT! (same company XFX Geforce 6600GT). I installed the video card and installed the driver. but nowhere does it have an option for me to enable SLI. from what I know 6600GT SLI is possible without a bridge.


    Do I need to change the BIOS settings?

    Pin settings?


    Its been a while since this thread opened. But I hope I can get some help!!!

  2. I've done a bit of searching "integrating drivers, slipstream, etc..." but I couldn't find it so here I am to ask for some help.


    I find it increasingly annoying to even put in a floppy drive. Alas, one failed on me and I decided NOT to buy a floppy.


    I need to do a fresh install of Win XP and I need help from 'yall to either


    1. Guide me through the steps or

    2. Point me in the right direction


    in how to integrate the latest drivers (especially the RAID) Lanparty nF4 Ultra (modded to SLI).


    Thank you for your help DFI gods!





    edit edit!!!

    Oh, BTW... My BIOS is 704-2BT. Is there "improved" BIOS(s) out there?



  3. I have 2x XFX 6600GT ( PV-T43G-NDF3). Both Purchased from Newegg. I have them SLI'ed right now. However, under games such as battlefield 2 and call of duty 2, the computer just crashes.


    They are same cards with same part number. However I realized that one of them has Ver. E.1 and the other has Ver C.3 on it.


    What is the difference between the two?


    Is the difference whats making it crash?


    Can I download a bios somewhere and flash them to identical BIOS?


    I'd appreciate your help


    BTW I'm not using the bridge connector. Is that the problem?

  4. You won't likely get any rma information since you do not have your location posted as requested by forum rules for your profile.





    My Location: La Crescenta, CA, USA



    The Board is under warranty, it was purchased from Newegg so I have the invoice as well.


    I really need to rma this board.

  5. I've been running

    A64 3200+ Winchester,

    6600 GT,

    OCZ powerstream 520

    OCZ EL DDR PC-4800 Platinum Elite Edition

    Raptor 36 x 2 RAID


    Friday Night, I left the machine on for a big download, Saturday Morning the computer was frozen. I reset the machine but the darn thing wouldn't boot.


    I opened up the computer to see that the 4 LED was on.


    After bios flashing, no luck. I took the mobo out trying to isolate the problem but couldn't do it. Today I went out to frys and bought a A64 x2 3800+ and ECS Mobo. On the ECS mobo, the cpu, video card and memory works fine. I popped in 3800 in the LanParty and It stills stuck at 4 LED.


    I KNOW I need to RMA this mobo. Can this happen? 15 years of system building this is a FIRST!!!


    I believe I exausted ALL POSSIBLE METHOD!


    Can I get RMA information please?

  6. Ok I am trying to understand this issue you are having. Is this a new build? All you have is the 2 sata harddrive? Do you have an OS installed on one of the drives? When it hangs at post, how many diag. leds stay on? Do you have all 4 power connections to motherboard plugged in? Have you tested with another PSU?



    Thank you for your reply.


    This is NOT a new build.

    I've had the system for about 5 months.




    on SATA 3 slot I have the Raptor 74

    on SATA 4 slot I have the WD250


    I had windows installed and have been enjoying it until 4 days ago.


    I turned the comp and and it would just hang at bios.


    I pressed 'TAB' to see what was going on and it would just get 'stuck' at the BIOS screen trying to detect the IDE devices. It will not get past that.


    I've tried using my Raptor 36, and Maxtors to no avail.


    It jsut simply will not go past the initial BIOS POST screen.


    Sometimes I would flash the BIOS (the complete way, by taking out the battery, etc...) and it would go PAST the BIOS screen but without detecting the ANY SATA drives. On the next boot, the problem begins again where it will NOT go past the INITIAL BIOS SCREEN.


    I have 4 red DIAG LED on when I reboot and the system hangs at the BIOS Screen.


    I have the OCZ POWERSTREAM 520 which has been really steady.

    I've tried the Antec Purepower and it does the same thing.


    I've tried using different RAM as well. (well, it's Mushkin PC2700 Basic) but it does the same thing.


    Instead of going DUAL channel, I've trided just sticking 1 stick in slot 1 but that does not make any difference.


    I'm beginning to think something terrible has happened to my mobo......

  7. What drivers are installed under " device driver" is it the microsoft or did you install the Nvidia. Some people are having problems with the Nvidia if have the Nvidia uninstall and reboot to use the microsoft drivers and see if that helps. :)



    The problem arises even before we start going in to the Windows boot screen.


    Why am I getting these problems?


    I've exhausted all different combinations of SATA connection methods but to no avail.


    There are DFI employees in here, right?

  8. I have nf4-SLI.


    with the following setup


    3000+ Winchester

    xp90 with Panaflow

    1Gig of OCZ 600 Platinum Elite in Dual (orange slot)

    OCZ Powerstream 520

    XFX 6600 GT

    WD Raptor 74

    WD 250GB

    NEC 16x




    When the computer boots, it just stays at the initial 'LanParty' Screen and won't proceed any further with my power led on and hdd led on.


    Now, I take all the SATA out and re-boot and the computer will boot all the way.


    Now, I thought my drive was faulty so I connected a couple of other SATA drives (maxtor, WD) and I get the same problem.


    I tried all the SATA slots, and even tried flashing the bios to the original one and the latest one but to no avail.


    Is my mobo just out of it? Do I need to RMA it?


    Can some one help?

  9. And here is an update from the Frank Wong fella...


    Hello Joshua,




    I answered your E-mail immediately on the very same day and I said we kept using USB mouse all the time in our lab with no problem. We need to have the configuration of your system to reproduce the symptom. But you never E-mail me back. We can’t solve the problem without seeing the symptom. Please help.

    Over 1 month later, he says he hasn't received my email...


    LoL... I love it when people play


    "I haven't received your email" game....

  10. I had the same identical problem.


    I spoke with a guy named Frank Wong from DFI. I told him my problems.

    He sort of was in disbelief and rendered me moot.


    I emailed him, he said he needed to contact overseas.

    I gave him a few days and he did not respond.


    Here is the message from him dated Fri 4/29/2005 2:40 PM.







    It’s strange. We keep using the USB (Logitech) mouse to test the LP NF4 Ultra-D all the time with no problem. Please tell us the hardware configuration of your system so we can try to reproduce the symptom here. I also Cc this message to DFI H/Q. They’ll check it out for us too.


    Thanks and have a great weekend

    Its been a month since his supposed "I will get back to you" email and no word from ANYONE from DFI.


    I am waiting to see who steps up to the plate and actually helps me out.

  11. Your ram, if it is rated for 2-3-2-6, is probably Winbond CH-5 based chips but I could be wrong. You should talk to either AndyOCZ or RyderOCZ (PM them) about timings and settings, how far you should expect to get, etc. OCZ makes very quality products with great support so before you sell them short talk to the men in charge


    I guess OCZ is revered around here and I understand.


    However, ed_jacobson had the same problem where it won't go beyond 210mhz.


    I'd like to call it the "210mhz barrier"


    I wasn't selling OCZ short because "I guess OCZ is not a great performer ALL ACROSS THE BOARD" is a correct statement for the owners of OCZ4001024ELDC who paid $$$ expecting average overclocking results.



  12. updated:

    Well, I've been surfing the web like crazy because I see others getting 275mhz like nothing but I am stuck at 210mhz off the bat. I thought I was the only one but it seems as if I am not alone...


    I found the following links.


    Same problem over at bleedingedge.com


    DFI Street


    Well, the jist of the story is as follows...


    There is a High Performance Series RAM at OCZ called the Enhanced Latency Series with Copper Heatspreader (Model #: OCZ4001024ELDC) that sort of has a overclocking "barrier" at 210mhz.


    You have to lower (slow it down) the DRAM timings and change the divider only to get somewhere around 225.


    It seems as if Ed_Jacobson had the IDENTICAL problem...


    I'm waiting until Andy from OCZ replies back to my email.


    Original Post


    Hellow everyone!


    Well, I think I have all the necessary tools but I don't know why my mobo will not overclock.


    Let me first laydown my hardware specs


    Mobo: DFI nF4 Ultra-D

    Bios: 310

    CPU: A64 3000+ socket 939 Winchester

    RAM: OCZ4001024ELDC-K (OCZ 1 Gig (2 x 512mb), CL 2-3-2-6 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS) ))

    VID: XFX GeForce 6600 Ultra with nV Silencer

    HDD: WD Raptor 74GB on SATA 1

    HDD: WD 250 GB on SATA 2

    OD: NEC 16x Burner on IDE1 Master

    Power Supply: Ultra X Connect 500 Watts

    Cooling: Thermalright xp90 with Zalman 92mm fan @ 5 volts.


    I don't have a 24 pin ATX so I have the 20 Pin plugged in and running without a hitch.




    I am able to run Windows XP Professional and run different tests (memory and prime95) without a hitch under normal conditions.


    I change the FSB to 225 and LDT to 4x and windows should be loading up but my computer just restarts itself without windows ever coming up!


    I see that people are upping their FSB to 250 without a hitch even with stock cooling.


    Did I get a Bad Mobo???


    Am I doing something wrong?


    Can someone help me step-by-step?


    Thank You. :angel:
