DFI Infinity 975X/G

Recommended Posts

I'm not so interested in giant FSB's...I am interested in cpu Mhz performance and to see whether or not Conroe still is tied to, like old Pentium4 cpu's, memory bandwidth.

 

I can't make any judgements about Conroe until I have one.

 

Pentium4 like I have though, are still very much tied to memory bandwidth/FSB like AthlonXP's were.

 

Only time will tell.

Fragman']What is the south bridge chip covered by? is this a ceramic plate ?

 

btw not a great place for the 24 pin cable.

I think this was the thread you saw (like your post by the way, about DFI & memory - I was thinking the exact same thing when I read what he said:) ).

 

Anyways, highest I saw there was 482, which should be enough for my purposes anyways. Still, looking forward to seeing what Travis pulls out of it.

i guess that is what it is....I'm not really sure

 

it doesn't get hot so I am not worried

 

but like every Intel board before, the NB gets extremely warm and will require aftermarket active cooling or watercooling =/

 

Still, looking forward to seeing what Travis pulls out of it.

 

I'm not really going to mess with it much more until I either get a Conroe or possibly buy the Pentium D 805 for about $90

 

haven't really decided

 

the only LGA775 cpu I have is the one I used in teh pics. I do have that Asus + Pentium D 930 but there's no way I am breaking that system down after I've got it all built up in teh Stacker with full watercooling etc.

i'll send you one but man you break it you buy it.

and yes it is a stepping 5 better call your R&D guys and make sure you have a bios that supports it.

my interest in the fsb is only in relation/to see the potential of overclocking the lower range Conroe's which have their multiplier's locked @ 7 or 9.

no they dont an E6600 is 9 an E6700 is 10

and ES uses unlocked multies downward not upward

 

the 6800 Extreme is like my 955 XE chip it has multiies unlocked upwards and downwards. like an FX chip.

Hopefully, DFI get's it past 450fsb but you'd need more than 1.725v mch volts and 1333fsb strap to get there.

 

Kyosen on P5W DH modded mch to 1.91-1.95v volts to hit 475fsb.

 

My Intel D975XBX is stock unmodded with max 1.725v mch volts

 

9x426fsb 4:5 with PC5400ULv1.5 @533mhz 4-4-4-15 at 2.2v

you forgot about the E6400, that I belive is the 7 - I was refering too.

ah yes the lower ones.

yeah the fsb is gunna crap out before the cpu on anything below a 6600. and the baords are already craping out on the 6600's. (im not refering to the Inifinty, just all of the conroe boards so far)

the 6800 is the way to go for the 10x multi. its just a shame is so insanely expensive when compared to the 6600

the 6700 is also a 10X multi, maybe the best price performance compromise.

 

E6600 seems to be good for around 3.5ghz I guess (24/7 use, not just Superpi)

 

What's the max anyone's managed with any real stability on the DFI board anyway??

oops i said 6800 sorry bout that i meant 6700.

the 6800 is way too much for my wallet lol.

i didnt have enough for a 6700, it was an extra 200, so i just got the 6600 ES.

now its just sitting here collecting dust until the boards are released and the dominant motherboard is shown.

cough*DFI Lanparty Series*cough
