  1. Hi Guys, I am trying to install Godfather the Game, but after entering the serial I keep getting this message: "Installation cannot continue because this game requires Directx 9.0c or higher to be installed on your system." But I have Directx 9.0c installed on my system! Does anybody have a clue what the deal is here?
  2. Then they should stop selling the board, I think! If a company sells a product then they should support it. How can you cut off support, if this board is hardly a year old?
  3. With the latest (official) bios you will have no probs running a x2 4800 or any dual core AMD whatsoever...
  4. Got a response from the DFI techies about this problem. They said it's a problem which isn't to be resolved with a bios update. They stated that the problem is related to overclocking and isn't a widespread problem among most of the nf3 ultra-d users. As for a bios-update for this board: don't expect any huge changes on that front. I've heard that the only change is going to be a cpu-id for the new sempron stepping (E6 I believe), since the nf3 chipset is going to be fased out. So we're gonna have to rely on bios-modders for changes and extra oc options. If anybody wants to give me a hand on that, post here: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=42536 Haven't had any response on this subject yet, though. So feel free to respond...
  5. Did every step exactly as you discribed, but it didn't work for me! After step 4 I had to clear cmos to get my rig to boot properly again. Too bad... :sad: I've had contact with the DFI techies about this problem. They said it's a problem which isn't to be resolved with a bios update.

  6. Question for the people still running 711: Did this, or any of the previous, bios version have ldt-voltage adjustments? I can't remember it did, but i'm not certain...
  7. Fits like a glove! A rather tight one, though. But it fits.
  8. No worries! You'll probably get the 711 bios shipped with your board (as did mine). My Opteron worked flawless with that bios. So you don't have to hotflash anything...
  9. I got the following reply from DFI: Dear Customer, Thank you for submitting us the query again and apologize for the delay. The voltage and latency of memory module(s) would require wider than default in case your on-hand module(s) is been over clocked. Moreover, since your platform includes Opteron CPU installed, we recommend that to update BIOS with following link for apply the completeness of update: Revision A & B Date Code 2005/12/19 File NF3UDC19.exe Size 698,314 bytes Description DiamondFlash Image for BIOS. Please Click Here if you are not familiar with the procedure of Diamond Flash Image!! Major Reasons of Change: Support AMD Opteron 939 Processor and cool 'n' quiet function. If problem still persists, you might have to contact your dealer or the authorized local distributor for RMA service. NOTICE if onboard component(s) damage and unexpected operation was caused by improper usage of overclocking, that’s out of product warranty. Best, Junyen Kinda dissappointing answer! I simply can't agree with their diagnose. It's just not true. BTW i'm still waiting for a reply from DFI Holland. Dagalidis may have found a solution to this problem. I'm gonna try it this weekend, so i'm not sure if this works for everybody. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43934 Let him know if it works.
  10. Since I have the same problem, I will certainly try this. I'm at work at the moment, so I think I'm gonna try it tomorrow. Thanx for the info!!
  11. Unplug your satadrives before making a change to the bios. If you don't the bios keeps resetting the htt to ridiculous high values. In my case 353. That's probably why your system won't boot after making changes to the bios. Check: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35222 Good luck!
  12. Ok, I discovered what the problem is. Some Opterons have problems running mem/htt 1:1. So if you want a high OC you have to use a divider. Knowing this I tried the following: HTT: 300 (max. is about 325) Multi: 9x Divider: 166 This resulted in a clockspeed of 2.7ghz and mem running @ 247 2.5-2-2-6-1T. These settings are 13 hrs prime stable and did 50 passes of memtest #8 errorfree. One happy camper here!
  13. Good initiative! If more users can point DFI to this problem, maybe it will get a higher priority with the technisians. So if somebody has the urge... [email protected]
  14. If you want a decent midrange card I would go for Nvidia. Their price/quality in the midrange segment is currently better than Ati's. I'd recommend a 6800 GS. Better priced and just as fast (or possibly faster) as the X800's
