1. is DFI NF4 X-AL and DFI NF4X- Infinity the same board???

2. can i use the DFI NF4 Infinity series bios?

Hello,I'm junior member. :)

Same like Pejantan's question,Where i can find DFI NF4X-AL bios? My DFI NF4X-AL cannot recognize Sempron 2800+ since I used load optimal setting from bios. Thx b4 :sweat:

I have a DFI nF4X Infinity Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce4..but I am not getting the temps of my 3700+ ClawHammer CPU reported in the proper 'range'

 

the BIOS will show the CPU at 13C to ~25C...but even the room is warmer than that

 

I have been over clocking and getting great performance (and the temps do rise and fall as you would think they should..but they just aren't in the right range)

 

I would really like to know what my temps really are before I try over clocking any further with better cooling

 

is there a BIOS that I sould try?

 

is anyone else having this same problem?

AG has the 9/11 bios but i think it's only a beta for testing. guess he's working out the issues we're having. i'm reading as low as 6C in bios and nothing with ITE. just ambient and chipset temps.

I'm not a big fan of flashing BIOS' willy nilly

 

I really would like to fix the problem with the DFI nF4X Infinity Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce4 not reading the temps. of my 12X multi 3700+ ClawHammer CPU properly

 

will this BIOS help? ... or will it be needless flashing?

 

[edit]

also...it would be really nice if a new BIOS could have a setting for just a few more 0.1vDimm

I am using the OCZ "VX" high voltage RAM with this board, and as high as the voltage to the dimms will go is 3.1v....amazingly enough...I am running this RAM at 2-3-3-8 timings at 250MHz and even faster at times...but this seems to be right on the edge...as with 2.9 or 3.0 this RAM fails to run faster than ~230MHz, no matter what the timings

and just so you can see what my temps look like....

 

here is a graph of all my temps. during a run with 3Dmark05

fd64j7.jpg

(the last peak marked with an arrow is opening Photoshop)

 

that was with the shipping BIOS...the BIOS I flashed to(CK8XD811) didn't do any better

 

you can see that the light green line looks to be the CPU temps...as it raises and falls like the temps should...but it just isn't in the proper range...dropping well under 10C and only as high as just over 30C...this is not only how the temps are reported with SpeedFan, but any other monitoring app as well as what the CPU temp shows while in the BIOS

 

the really odd thing is that the 'spastic' dark green line is what should be my temp reported off the CPU?

 

I just looked thru some of the other threads here and I did find that this also could be a problem with the socket 939 nF4 DAGF/Infinity boards as well

..if there is any more info needed to help with a fix for this...I will gladly do anything that is needed...

I am having this same problem, on this same board model. I have tried the shipped BIOS, The latest BIOS and one other one, i forget the version.

 

I am currently using the latest. There is no temperature reading variation between the different versions.

 

My Clawhammer reports temperatures that are 10-12 degrees © off from what was reported by a different motherboard which i had the SAME cpu in. (not the same model, the same chip.) by the way, this is also in the same case, with the same cooling configuration.

 

the chip i have should run (as the Lanparty reported) on my cooler at about 40-48 degrees (depending on the variation of the BIOS version and the software), but on this board, it reports the temperatures at a chilly 32 degrees under load.

 

while i would like to believe that it is accurate, i know that it is not.

 

i also beleive that it incorrectly detects the rise and fall of the temperatures, or the load/idle differential, if you will. I know that the clawhammer, on the xp-90 that difference is usually about 8-10 degrees. on this board, the difference is rarely over 5 degrees.

I've also just noticed that the BIOS' for the socket 754 nForce4 Infinity motherboards are not listed on this thread

 

they can be found here

http://www.dfi.com.tw/Support/Download/bio..._FLAG=A&SITE=US

(please add the listing for the 754 Infinity to the OP)

 

I would almost guess that the socket 754 DFI Infinity is the most popular board in the Infinity series...as it seems that other bands of 939 boards and the 939 LanPartys could be of more interest to buyers, but for the socket 754 the Infinity seems to be the best way to get a PCI-E slot

I would think that many of the 754/AGP/ClawHammer system users who bought AMD64 early on would be buying these boards now to use higher-end video cards that are PCI-E only with their still good, strong running early ClawHammer CPUs

and the DFI nF4X Infinity Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce4 seems to be the best choice out there for a 754 motherboard

 

is this just a problem with the later 3700+ ClawHammer

or do all early ClawHammer 754 CPUs also have the problem of temps not reported in the proper 'range'?
