  1. Looking for 2x512mb pc3200 Platinum dual channel rev 1.1 (tcc5) I'm in the Toronto area. tx LBJGH
  2. The DFI is a better overclocker than the Abit because of the VDIMM options but I'm currently running my cpu at 10x250, HTT @1000mhz and memory at 200mhz with everything at the stock voltage except the cpu core voltage. The DFI required a voltage bump across the board to reach 10x260. In any case... the ABIT was a good option because I can continue to use the rest of my hardware.
  3. I found a solution... I just bought a used Abit A8V and everything installed and worked perfectly using native Vista drivers.

    The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

    I think I'm gonna see if I can find someone who is willing to trade their 6800 ultra for my card... That way I'll be able to use the dual core CPU and get comparable gaming performance. Wish me luck.

    The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

    I sent Microsoft an e-mail about this because Microsoft's upgrade advisor indicated that all the hardware would work with Vista (no action necessary). Also, this is the response I got from Nvidia when inquiring about the problem:

    The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

    Hey Angry, I love my NF3 Ultra-D... fast, stable and great overclocker! What's this new forum you are referring to?

    The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

    Hey guys, I don't know if this has been discussed in this thread or not but I've got a problem with Vista Ultimate on my DFI system. Appearently I'm not the only one as there are numerous threads on the net about the same problem.... anyway, I can't run my dual core AMD CPU in Vista... it messes up my graphics. I have a Lanparty NF3 Ultra-D, X2-4200, ATI x800xt pe. Everything works well in vista but only when I have one core of the CPU disabled! I get an ATI video drivers will not load properly (code 43) I hope there is a fix soon because I have to boot into WinXP to do any video/audio encoding to take advantage of the dual core processing power!
  8. Doh, I got sucked into ordering Vista only to find out my current hardware is not supported. What to do? Well I sent this message to Microsoft. I hope Nvidia comes up with a fix 'cause I aint upgrading my software right now.
  9. Time to resurrect this thread. Has anyone got Vista working correctly with the NF3 ultra-D/ATI agp video card and and AMD X2 processor? I just ordered Vista Ultimate then read on the net that Nvidia is not providing updated drivers for the NF3 motherboards. Vista will work with a single core cpu installed or with one core disabled (if equipped with an X2 processor). I'll be damned if I replace this great motherboard just to run Vista!! Has anyone heard of a solution for this problem? tx LBJGH
  10. I've got one but it's still running flawlessly with my X2 4200 and x800xtpe. Sorry, I don't have any need to sell it though.
  11. 7thwave, after flashing the bios did you reset the CMOS jumper on the motherboard?

    NF3 Ultra-D 939/AGP

    Agreed. Sure us computer nerds usually upgrade to the latest greatest but the majority of people keep a system for several years. I know a whack of people who have no need to upgrade to the latest and greatest but are happy with yesterdays stuff.
  13. OK, here is a link to all bios' for the nf3 s939 Ultra-D http://www.lejabeach.com/DFI/dfinf3s939/dfnf3bios.html

    Found both maxes, can't combine!

    Since the memory controller is built into the A64's its hard to hit both the CPU max and the memory max. My TCC5 was able to hit 300mhz 1:1 @ 2.5,5,10,5 2T on my 3000+ winchester on an epox motherboard however the same memory on my DFI board and X2 cpu will only do 218mhz 2,2,5,2. The maximum HTT:memory I can run is about 240mhz regardless of the voltage or ultimate clock speed. I'd just run you memory at 166mhz max clock i.e. 166/200 and forget about the 1:1.

    NF3 Ultra-D 939/AGP

    ... seems like there is still a demand for either highend AGP video cards or decent s939 motherboards that'll work with the X2 cpu's
