So who is running a 7950 in an Ultra D?

Recommended Posts

I am considering this card. Got the Ultra D motherboard. I've read here a lot of people are saying "it should work", but I don't like that "should" stuff. Before I spend money I need to know it "does" work. Anyone running a 7950 on a DFI Ultra D, please post about experiences/issues with it. Thanks

Have you done the SLI mod on your NF4 Ultra chipset?

I'm not positive but IIRC you'll need a SLI capable chipset to enable your second core.

7950 will work fine in almost any PCIe x16 slot. If your Ultra is modded or not it should be fine, just make sure your top PCIe slot is not in dual view/SLi mode and providing the full 16 channels of bandwidth.

How do you do that?

If you haven't touched the six SLI jumpers since taking the mobo out of the box, then you are properly configured (jumpers cover pins 1-2). Put the video card in the top PEG slot.

 

Nvidia maintains a list on their site of approved mobo's for the 7950. The LanParty series is not yet on that list. However, you will find lots of people that have the card installed and working.

Well this is why I posted this thread, to hear from those that have this combo. So far I have yet to hear from one.
