    Final question then... Since no one seems to be answering it. Would a Seasonic S12-500 work well with my setup? I'm planning to drop my 6800gs to go for something like a 7800GT.. or perhaps a 7900GT.

    uh.... PC Power and Cooling is not quiet.. haha. A native 24pin plug can also mean it can be SPLIT into 20 + 4. Native 24 can be split into 20 + 4, but with DFI motherboards you can't use the adaptor. That's how I saw it and understand it.

    Thanks for the head's up EDL.. I guess the only reason that DFI motherboards and DFI street REQUIRES a minimum of a 480W psu is because of trashy companies pushing out high wattage PSUs with no amperage to back it up [or false claims like operating temepratures at 25 degrees] What kind of amperages should I be looking at then? Does 18 A 12V1+ / 18A 12V2+ sound good? I'm aware of NCIX.com. I live on their forums.. My second question still hasn't been answered! I've seen cases where people have problems with Seasonic PSUs [issues only with this particular motherboard though, something about it drawing too much 5+VSB?] Is it true that the DFI Ultra-D draws more 5+VSB than most conventional motherboards?

    Well you see, the reason I'm going around and asking is because I was looking for a cheap-er PSU, *super quiet mind you*, ala NeoHe430. But of course, the NeoHE is infamous for its problems.. and its under 480, so DFI won't even bother troubleshootin. I'm basically looking for a well built PSU that's supported by DFI-street and is super quiet [think NeoHE430 quiet, or SeasonicS12-430 quiet] according to SPCR's testing methods. Am I asking for too much here? ^^''.

    Well.. I was just wondering why 480W. I know about the ratings and all that... that power supplies are not 100% efficient [and hell, not that many are 80% efficient] But I was just wondering - is it a question of how much it draws from the 12V rail/s? And - What uses the 3.3V rail [other than memory] and the 5V rail? Should I be looking into a power supply that gives devotes more wattage to both the 3.3V rail and the 5V rail, or one that mainly powers the 12V rails?

    I know what ye mean Oceanborn.. But you gotta remember that most people that buy DFI stuff in the first place do craploads of research.

    Now that I have your attention!.... Yes, I'm looking to purchase another PSU. I have a few questions though; Why does the DFI NF4 Ultra-D motherboard require more than 480W? I'm not trying to argue, but why? Is it the components used? or what? Second; I have heard some issues that the Seasonic S12 500/600 series has problems powering up DFI motherboards due to something like the DFI motherboard sucking up too much 5VSB+ ? I guess my main question is - How different are DFI boards [ultra-D] when they're not overclocked, compared to say, an ASUS A8N-E - that requires them to use a 480W psu?
  8. Q: May have been answered already..but I missed it. Is the Seasonic 500W on the recommended list? I know that its on the first post, but the dividing of the sections makes it seem like that its not 'fully recommended', but only recommended because its silent. Which is it?
  9. Well, I do not believe that the 6600LE series was suppsoed to be SLi compatable. Only the 6600GT, 6800 [and up] are SLi compatable using the bridge. Other cards don't have the slot for the SLi bridge to attach to.
  10. If you modify the HS orientation such that it blows backward, does it interfere with one of the RAM slots?
  11. Well, I have a question. I'm currently running an Enermax 485W. It has dual 18A rails and runs perfectly fine for a combined output of 32A. If I connect my video card onto one 12V rail of the NeoHE, all my peripherals onto another 12V rail, and then the mobo+p4 connector on one, would this load fine? Afterall, my system is not being horribly taxed with my hard drive, optical, and video card plugging away at the same 12V source while the motherboard and p4 connector are pulling at the other rail.
  12. That's not the problem. It used to load at 62, but ever since the performance degrade, it loads at 52. I tested the card in a friend's computer, and found out that something is actually wrong w/ the card itself. I'll be RMAin her.
  13. Er.. OK. Of the people on NCIX, three out of the four them are using the DFI NF4 Ultra-D boards. You guys think that its possible that the GS and the Ultra-D dont like each other?
  14. Hello. I previously bought a 6800GS on pci-e for myself as a Christmas/birthday present. Anyhow, it ran very well out of the box. It hit around 5200 in 3Dmark05 after fresh 81.94 drivers. However, after a few days, the performance of the card started to degrade. In a game like counterstrike:Source - I got about 150 fps on the stress test. However, with no software OR hardware changes for these few days, I have dropped down to a mere 40fps. Whats worse is that the card's performance is constantly degrading! The funny thing is, on the very first test of 3dmark05, the card actually performs up to par as if it was the first day I installed it! This performance lasts about half a second, and then the FPS begins to drop like a madman. This leads me to believe that something is not physically wrong with the card, but rather, something triggered the card to throttle the performance backwards for its performance. I installed rivatuner to check out my core clock speeds, but they remained at 425 core and 1000 for my mem throughout my testing in 3dmode, and then dropped to 350/1000 for 2d. I've changed drivers, made sure the pci-e connector is snug tight, formatted windows. My core temperature never exceeds 52 degrees after this performance slowdown. However, on the first day of installation, the card hit 65 degrees. What on earth could it be? Mobo - DFI NF4 Ultra-D CPU - 3000+ Venice LBBLE 0521 PSU - Enermax Noisetaker 485W ATX 2.01 RAM - 1gb at 2.5-4-4-8, memtested no errors [60+hrs] BIOS revision for mobo is 6-23 Similar problems can be found http://forum.pcmech.com/showthread.php?t=147554 and http://forum.ncix.com/forums/index.php?mod...kid=0#msg996969 I already posted this on the eVGA as well as the nVidia support forum. However, I thought I'd try my luck here.
