Unofficial Opteron 939 Thread

DFI UT nF4 Ultra-D Board+Opteron 175 Combo?

 

Hello, I'm new to the forum and couldn't help but notice the current (as in latest) problems with some DFI boards and AMD processors (fried CPU's). I've just purchased (but haven't taken delivery on) a DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D board and Opteron 175 CPU. With the cost of these CPUs and what I'm now reading about DFI boards frying CPUs I'm not sure I want to take a $520 chance....... I had planned on just using this board with default settings (reliability is more important to me than overclocking). Any suggestions/advice/comments on this DFI board + this Opteron CPU combination would be greatly appreciated!

 

TIA!

 

Happy Holidays!

the only reason dfi's are frying cpu's is from oc'ing. stock auto settings you're cpu will be just fine but why go dfi if your not going to oc, you're better off going with asus if you want a simple and reliable board already owned 3 of them i know asus tight runners

i used to be asus all the way great boards but like you say if you're not going to really get into oc'ing to the max stick with asus. i switched to dfi because asus could'nt get me to where i wanted to get in oc'ing. dfi and asus only good boards out there had the a8n-sli prem loved it but like my dfi nf4 sli-dr more. cant go wrong either way both great boards

 

I couldn't have said it better myself. Although I like my Asus Preimum board I wish I would have just gone with DFI all the way :( Not only that but the more time I spend here at dfi.street the more I realize that DFI by far has the best support out of any/all motherboard manufacturs! The only reason I didnt' go DFI in the first place was because I was a bit intimidated by their boards, only now do I realize that is not the case!

Please try and keep general motherboard discussion to a PM. If we all examine a little more discipline it will be easier for people to research Opterons using this thread. Thats why this thread is here. I would remind all people that the "Recommendations and Hot Deals" section is for you to post questions about a new rig. Many of the people here, roam that section as well. Best for all involved.

 

Thank you! :)

What does "E4" mean in terms of stepping? (i tried to search for this info, but too many hits...) Are the CABYE and CABNE chips that everyone seeks E4? I'm just slightly confused...

 

concerning this listing:

thanks again!

 

Thats the AMD revision number. All the single core opty's and san diego's are E4. Thats what your looking for, its the right one. No matter what the "stepping", it'll be E4.

Realise you have an opteron but your question is general not Opteron specific.

 

luck :nod:

My Opteron 165 CACJE seems to need at least 1.45V to hit 2600MHz and be prime stable. I've got my memory clocked down to 133 divider and CAS3 to try and drop it out of the equation.

 

Currently using 623-3 BIOS (No noticable differences between 623-2 and 623-3 with my Crucial RAM).

 

It doesn't like greater than 1.5V either.

 

Will investigate further tomorrow.

you'll need to look at the chip itself to read the Stepping... it's printed on the top.
