Going to buy a DFI board friday.

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys I need a little bit of help.

Here is a link to the board that I want order this friday http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16813136166

It's a great board and I can't wait to get it. I just have a few questions before I order. Will my ram work with this motherboard? I heard that DFI are picky about that. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820231032 . Then also my HDD's I have 2 of these running in Raid-0. It that going to be a problem with the DFI in any way? My Current MSI board is having troubles with the raid... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16822148139 I also have a 700watt ocz gamestream so I hope that is going to be alright with it. Thanks for any answers in advance

The Expert can be tough to handle if you dont like fiddling with ram timings...

 

You must be able to set these correctly for best performance...

 

I would check the OCDB for ram like yours and compare all the entries you can find with your ram and average them out and start there...

 

or if you want something a little easier just grab the SLI-DR....;)

How much harder is the Expert from the Regular Version? I mean I do have knowledge I have been overclocking systems for the past 2 years. This is my first DFI board. Is it smarter to just go with the SLI-DR version?

You should be fine. You have the quality components for the Expert and most important you have the combine knowledge of the Street. I say go with the Expert it's a great buy. :)

Alright I think I am going to give the Expert a go. Price is almost the same and I am sure that I can handle the BIOS ... Just need to read a little bit on these forums and I shall be fine :)
