returning to DFI, have the Infinity RS482 on the way :)

Recommended Posts

The Title says all.

 

Should have never steered away from DFI. Oh well, lesson learned the hardway. Got myself another x2 3800 and an Infinity RS482 on the way. Been reading up here and elsewhere on the board, after a few quirks cutting its teeth it seems this board when it arrives to me is proving to be a damn fine ocing matx board, which is exactly what I needed. I have some Mushkin BH5 and this board it appears can pump some volts, I hope this mem works for me like im counting it will

 

Wish me luck this boards a gem :) and not a dud :(

im just hoping this is the matx vehicle that will push one of my 2 x2 chips into some extreme frequency :D no stock htpc forme, i want to squeeze as much out of it as i can, folding 24/7, most matx blow in the ocing dept so im glad these guys released one worth a crap, or so i hope

 

its looking promising from everything i have read, i hope i wont have to rely on your expertise around here too much, been ahwile that i have looked in a dfi bios, the options will be overwhelming

3.2v max in bios and havent heard of a mod. I am using TCCD, onboard video (overclocked to 490mhz) and taking advantage of the passive and very quiet board.

 

I was able to get my X2 @ 2.7 with no real board limitations. I found the only useful divider was the 6/5 w/ my 2GBHZ, but the cpu was maxed, not the mem.

 

Good review

thanks sir, ill be needing advice, i have winbond bh5 muskin sticks so that 3.2 should be somewhat useful, i also have utt bh but i would prefer to use my bh if at all possible, supposedly the pqi i have is tccd but i have never pulled the spreaders to verify and it works fine in my other setup so i dont want to disturb it

 

ill have a manchester and a toldeo x2 core to work with so hopefully one of the 2 will fly on it

board arrived today, FWIW its a cool board, sadly someone slashed my tires today so I was forced to have to deal with that instead, only had time to setup the board and I am letting run at stock for the moment, the time I was planning to spend with it I had to deal with the tires issue GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR im so mad, anyhow

 

quickly went into the bios and took a gander, wow, im scared of it, for a matx board its alot of control over things, did i read it right???? 1.85 on the cpu volts??? wow you would have to had some damn good cooling solution to go that much on a cpu??? wow, overall im impressed with it, it appears of high quality, I love that dvi and optical spdif out, once i have time tommrow to play with it some more ill report back, cheers

Too bad about the tires, hope it wasn't some ex girlfriend stalker type. I have the same board at this http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=117063 . This board overclocks as good as some full sized ATX boards. I added a chipset fan and I am using an Arctic Freezer 64 pro. It runs game great allthough gaming is more my kids thing. My cpu seems not to go higher than 2.9. Your Vcore shows up to 1.85, mine only goes to 1.55 and thats even after flashing twice the most recent stable 711 bios. Good luck and keep posting your results and feel free to ask any question I don't mind helping if I can.

grrrrrrrrr

 

tires cost more than i anticipated, a new psu will have to wait, FWIW at stock its a fantastic board, the optical out is nice, the sound onboard is good, the DVI onboard is sweet, for what it is as a potential base HTPC it rocks, but I know theres a beast ready to be unleashed in it

 

so............ psu plans are on hold, but........ i have read up where some certain psus cause rebooting issues etc...... has any one specific psu thats got decent juice for ocing seem to have become a clear winner in not causing the random reboots??? preferably a modular type?

maybe the tires are a good thing so I have time to research this out, I want a PSU that will allow overclocking and not be a bottleneck

I am considering this mobo for my HTPC because I liked all the video output options. I keep hearing that this is a great mobo for HTPCs, is that pretty much the consensus? Does the on-board video do well for DVD playback and streaming?

 

The HTPC I am building will be used to stream audio (MP3s, WAVs) and video (ripped DVDs) through a Russound audio/video controller.
