DFI NF2 bioses

Recommended Posts

So I downloaded and burned Tmod's CD (very well done BTW) and there are all these different modded bioses to choose from for an Ultra Infinity. Is there a compiled list somewhere of all the NF2 bioses and what their features/changes/pros-cons/etc are? Which one would be best for my setup and why? I did some searching of these forums, but I didn't turn up anything.

Important Notice!!!

You must enable SATA in bios to see the performance effect. I inject it through SATA Bios.

If you have problem booting into windows After Bios boot....

Restart ... go into bios and Disabled SATA...

It will boot fine to windows

If this problem occured please report it to me. Thank you

 

 

I got more but they're unsorted, so is the above really, I need to resort all of it...

Wow, thanks! if you get the rest of them in there and get it all cleaned up, this would make a really good sticky, especially if all the links to the files are good.
