Just got this stuff put together for my first 939-based system, looking for a couple reccomendations from the more experienced people here on the board...

 

- DFI SLI-DR Expert

- Opteron 165 CCBBE 0610 DPMW

- 2X 1GB OCZ Platinum 3200 EL R2 V1.0 TCCD

- XFX 7900GT XXX 560/1650

 

Questions I have are:

- Which RAM slots to use?

- Which BIOS?

- Which Chipset Drivers?

- Which Forceware Drivers?

 

Thanks all in advance for yer help! :)

Yeah, one of the admins should move this thread to the correct section.

 

Questions I have are:

1)Which RAM slots to use?

2)Which BIOS?

3)Which Chipset Drivers?

4)Which Forceware Drivers?

Answers:

1)You should put your memory modules into the orange slots first.

 

2)Try the bios that has came with the motherboard to see if everything works for you or not. Don't always think flashing to something new will help in anyway.

 

3)You should try the lastest 6.86 drivers from here....

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_nf4_win2k_6.86.html (I was always confused if the Expert uses different Chipset drivers from the rest of the DFI boards (NF4-D, Ultra-D, SLI-D, maybe even SLI-DR), but i guess that's only for the Bios version. Hmm.....

 

4)The forceware drivers, i guess you can just go with the latest and see how your games run and if you see any issues revert back to a stable version 84.** WHQL

 

If you don't like the latest drivers 91.31 try this URL which has alot of goodies....
