  1. Your probably right Dens, but jeez, have a heart. Multiple hardware slaps in the face over this board can't be good, eh? And if it "says" it will do it, by GOD, when nothing else works right, this should work. I mean it won't crash or slow down anything will it?
  2. Its actually "less" than what the sensors say (or should be, actually yes!).... Thats ONLY if that stupid resistor is still there on your board. And if I were you I would NOT remove that resistor, unless the bios now or in the future will let the cpu (ie: SD) auto adjust it.... Otherwise, if its removed, its an overvolt, the bios reports lower, u actually have higher... with the resistor removed! Although, its not clear in terms of real volts deliverd, if its just a reporting thing or not. So its NOT clear true volts. Have to do the multimeter. Important thing is "what is the minumum" voltage. Everything else is easy. If you know the real "minumum", I mean multimeter minumum, your home free. Has to be low enough for stock and on the SD end I mean low enough for its min. Sad, u can always make the volts higher, but how do u make it "lower".... I don't know but I want to. Maybe bios? Dunno... A real pickle, the SD need a lower to start, the Venice need higher?
  3. Another salesman troll (from newegg?). There's probably lots of em in here. Its easy to pick em out. Bring it....
  4. I don't have my rebelhaven links here at home. But as I recall, with pass through, +.1 takes you to 1.34 and +.2 takes you to 1.43 "measured" on the boards without the resistor removed. I can't recal the bios readings at these. But I will find the links.... theres alot rh and hoot did. The "undervolt" relates to whats the default plus the (+) voltage. The default is 1.32 I think. "+.2" would theoretically take you to 1.5+ where as its really 1.43 "measured". See?
  5. Actually I read these voltage threads earlier. There is a misunderstanding about the datum. The rebel multimeter is the datum (standard) its the wording of trying to explaint it that is wrong. edit: I was freaked out a little too at first.
  6. Ran Prime95 Day and half no errors lockups etc shouldn't u be selling inferiour products? maybe engish aint ur lang
  7. I'll never shop at ur f*ing store again, neither will my distributors.
  8. Chieftec is another newegg troll...... Sorry to all, I posted "newegg" and they picked it up on their robots. sorry.
  9. Hey AG lighten up man, everybody knows NewEgg reviews are plants, written by a gy named "N/A" who trolls forums like this for new material. Your missing the humor in that post. And that gy 2 posts above (edit: peter2000) this is a newegg troll, I recognize his english verbage. As for the 939 vs 754, i did some reading, seems to be a difference of 939-754 pins there which is more than 1. If dfi, or any company producing 939 boards claims their product CANNOT do 1000 let them put that in writing. As for you, I would be cautious with my words as to product specifications. No offence, I did my posts in fun, but no matter what nvidia's intentions or your experience, the fact is the product specifications are cemented. If you think dfi or any other company is defrauding the public, please say so.
  10. I work with alot of russians, they all have thier head on straight!
  11. Wasn't a feature of socket 939 1000HT? The board boasts support of 1000(m)HT, so you are saying this board and won't do 1000(m)HT? Mines doing 937 right now at least thats what the programs say. I'm confused now.... I'm obvoiously confused.

  12. Yes they were kind enough to reply to me 3 days after my review submission. First, heres a couple of reviews from guys named N/A (he reviews alot) and like "Dually" and "Sharky". I am only posting this incase these folks might have hit on some settings that we missed. Apparently all these people have super-solid boards...... But u know at least "someone" is posting a review so that you may make an educated decision on the purchase of this product. --------------------------------------- Dually - This was the last piece I needed to build my system. I had bought a X800XT AIW from newegg, which they offered at a great deal, which in turn made me build an AGP system. I also bought an Athlon 64 X2 4400+. I was reading from various computer sites (anandtech, xbitlabs, etc..) that dual-core agp motherboards were hard to come by. I was going to buy the famous MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum but I found that they only offered a beta bios for dual-core processors. This motherboard is the only good brand name board with the nforce3 chipset that I saw supported dual core processors. I am not dissapointed =] If there are other dual core agp users looking to buy a motherboard I would recommend this one only if you know your way around the bios. At first, my system crashed every five minutes or so. I did some investigation and found that the motherboard set the default voltage to the processor at 1.1V. I hiked it up to the 1.4V-1.5V range and now it works (and overclocks) like a charm! So remember dual core users to change the vcore! AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (2.4GHz) DFI UT nF3 Ultra-D ATi Radeon X800XT AIW 1GB Corsair TwinX DDR400 Seagate 160GB Sata with NCQ (feature good for dual core users!)

N/A - This board is not buggy, at least not for me.

Highly recommended if u r to upgrade. Go, AMD!! Very happy!!! Also thanks to newegg's excellent service. ---------------------------------------------------- (here's the money bags guy I guess who knows "rock solid" when he f**ks with it) eldorado - awesome OC board This is probably the best board available for socket 939 and AGP. The board really performs. However, the IDE raid blew up on me after a few hours (of course, just minutes after I had deleted my backup). Took many hours of work to recover, but luckily I was able to recover my data. I will never use IDE raid again -- stick to SCSI for that. The raid went funky after I pushed the OC pretty far -- so just don't use it. Other than that, nice mobo. Oh, one last thing, there are no clear dividers for DRAM/FSB. You can force the DRAM to 166/133/100, then push fsb to wherever you want to go. I'd have preferred the standard list of available integer dividers. When OCing, ram will post at 100/166/200 (or x2 for dual channel), not at the true ram freq. Not to worry, the ram is really overclocked, just takes some faith to get past the post figures. So, in summary, great OC board, but not for the uninitiated. You kind of have to know what your doing to get this thing to move. But move it will. ---------------------------------------------------------- (here's N/A again, be sure to disable cpc like he says...) N/A - nf4 its a good board, except disable cpc in memory settings ---------------------------------------------------------------- (here's sharky who loves and thanks newegg for their "awsome" products..., oh yeah, he couldn't be happier. Oh sharky did a double almost the same as this, all in all he use the word "solid" 12 times) sharky - This board rocks This board rocks, I just got it yesterday, it's perfect for folks with good AGP video card and want the Venice A64, it took me a while to figure out everything due to poor documentation, but it turned out to be a real overclocker, rock solid: A64 3000+ Venice @ 2.7Ghz (302*9) with stock heatsink and fan /Artic silver 5 no need for heatpipe or copper heatsink, G.Skill ddr 600LA(TCCD)running 1:[email protected] 2.5-4-4-8 1T cpu-1.55v ram-2.95v chipset-1.75v Super PI 1M 31s Couldn't be happier, five golden eggs, thanks to newegg superfast shipping and awesome products. ----------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------- And now MY REVIEW which apparently was not ready for prime time. Its in the reply email at the bottom. You know I'm kinda dissapointed seeing howas I have spent over 10 grand at newegg. Jeez....
