I happened to have a pic of the chipset cooler I took during my build :)

Now I have a question. I was bored and was reading the manual for my fine mother board. In the manual it tells you not to insert a second graphics card in the board, as ti can cause a no boot situation. I read a review where it scored lower and they stated it could be because the 2nd was operating at 2X instead of 8X. Now I look at the pic of my board and it clearly shows 2-3 ON sets the PCIE1 and PCIE3 to 8X 8X config. If it does infact adn one was to complete the SLi mod, it should function 100% like my LP SLi-D did correct?

I am looking to grab a second 7900GT KO over the next few days and I am building a SLi Bridge out of one I had laying around :)
So I could actuly end up with a DFI Infinity SLiII-M2 :)

First Post -- Hello!

Hey MC,

Thumbs are great.

Are you using this patriot memory or something very similar?

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820220094

I have that RAM, the UltraII-M2, and an AM2 3800+ X2 on the way and should be here tomorrow (the 23rd).

I just wanted to know if there were any issues or anything I would have to do to get that RAM to work in the UltraII-M2.

As you can see from my sig, its been years since my last core upgrade, and I hope my first experience with DFI goes off without a hitch. I plan to transfer the HDD and GPU (until I can get new ones in a couple weeks). I will also use my current power supply.

Thanks for any assistance guys.

The Patriot worked MUCH better on Intel. :( I was able to get 920 @ 2.2. However on this DFI my highest, not realyl trying my best, I',m looking @ a 800 wall @ around 4 4 4. :(

Not bad for cheapie ram but still... I think I have a weak DFI Ultra. Still, can't complain with a nice OC in my opinion.

My board loves 9x multi. Don't know why weird. Also, 2T on ram.

Im looking for some new memory. I don't know what to get though... Micron is a tad pricey. looking at over 250$ roughly.

Using Team value ram that use what looks like micron chipsets :) , I can a push memory to 1066, 2.3v at 5-5-5-15, while maintaining <300 htt.
htt by itself can be pushed to 380.

If I'm trying to push both, htt AND memory.
At 320htt, mem maxed out at 960 5-4-4-15.
Absolute stable max, not even a single more htt/mem. This is using the first release bios, not the latest 711 bios. With 711 bios, stable htt/mem combination are much lower.
1T timing is very unstable at high htt.

Maybe it's just very early bios, DFI haven't tweak it to max yet... :cool:

That is a SWEET stick if it is any reg ram! Even more so if it's VALUE!!!

Which ones are they? I'm sure they probably changed them by now.
