Official LanParty ICFX3200-T2R/G Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I think it's a case of the infinity already gets you your max cpu clock, and without extra cooling you ain't seeing any more cpu mhz, as for ram speed, well the 975 is real fast..

 

 

I wanna give that board 5-6 months though just like the infinity before it gets to the max it can do..

Hmm this is going to be a really hard decision. I am going to get a new c2d motherboard to replace my ecs one (lol @ ecs). I am really wanting to get the ICFX3200 but am considering going with the Infinity. So I think for now I am going to get an infinity, then in a year (read six months) pick up the lanparty if I think I need it. Does that sound pretty reasonable?

So it's kind of like:

 

DFI LP NForce4, best 939 overclocker you could get.

 

DFI LP NForce4 Expert - Didn't add much for the extra you paid?

 

So the 975 being your Nforce4 standard board, and ICFX being your expert - but to more of a extent.

 

680i boards seem to be clock out of the box, so hopefully DFI will follow suit with theirs?

 

Thanks for the explanation towards your feelings on this board Happy_Games.

e-penis's? girly? weak? cross dressing feminine egotists with big dicks into pc overclocking?

 

 

 

Personally I beilieve what DFI need is a dual bios for lanparties, 2 front ends, a simplifed bios and a complex one.

 

that's a hypothetical statement too..cos I know it ain't gonna happen (just an idea)

 

You mean sort of like what Gigabyte did on their XP version boards where you hit F1 to get into the Advanced Bios Options?

I was thinking about nforce 650i. Pretty good deal at newegg for $129 US. Seems like a lot of flexibility for a low amount of money. Already have the rest of the pieces on the way.

 

Haven't given up on the RD600 but I know Travis speaks the truth. I'm not in that 1% either.

you don't even know how much hand-holding you guys are going to have to do with every single user who purchases the ICFX3200 board. It is a nightmare and I'm beginning to believe it is the wrong path to take.

 

Personally, I strongly believe we need to move away from this ultra-complex overclocking crap and move into a lot less complex overclocking (sorta like the 975 or the older 875).

 

More complexity = more RMA's, more 'defective' boards, more pissed off users, more whiners, more blah blah blah

 

less complexity (but still strong overclocking) = a few whiners crying about something (like they did with 975 until we proved it was the most consistent and stable overclocker)

 

I'm really bored of the super-mega-ultra-near-impossibly-complex overclocking options.

 

They don't do anything for us 99%'ers.

 

Us 99%'ers are where the money is...so maybe DFI and others should start actually catering to us instead of the 1%'ers. (no offense 1%'ers...but your buying power is weak and girly compared to ours)

 

 

Gotta admit Travis thats a brutally honest response to you're members and a very hard statement too make considering the other side of the spectrum which you also have to coexist with!

 

Kudo's too you my friend, its a pleasant suprise to see someone that cares that much about his customers and not just the bottom line!

 

Peace....Campbell

Personally I do not care if my post was pulled or censored. What I do care about and appreciate is that this website is still here, and up and running. Imagine what it would be like without it.

it's nice to know I'm in the 1% with the biggest e-penis and broken zipper, lol...

 

 

 

 

One look at those bios screenshots made me never wanna buy that board, my SLI-DR is complex enough for now. Trust me I've gotten caught up in overclocking binges too, and rather enjoy tweaking. But I am also getting tired of the never ending tweaking, then upgrading and tweaking again.

 

I have come to realize that I didn't spend all this time and energy to run Prime and SuperPi all day long, I wanna use my damn rig, that's what she's there for. I want to back up DVDs so my kid doesn't destroy them, I want to make DVDs from my video camera cause I am too cheap to buy more than 2 tapes. I want my damn porn, and I wanna be able to share it across my network, without having to worry about the machine streaming my porn BSODing.

 

I think it's pretty cool that you're so much into overclocking, and I kind of admire it but it's not for me, to that extent anyway.

seems you haven't been here yesterday and the day before it ;) (don't ask)

 

I don't mind mine post was deleted and I hope this all goes well for the street and DFI itself =)

 

Mine's gone too.. I guess I said somethings I shouldn't have..

 

Anyways... I hope DFI is getting this board out -- in good availability -- this month... would be nice. :rolleyes:

so what you are saying is that sens you dont have the tech know how you hate the mobo lol. simple is bad imo lets go back to the days of seting jumpers on the mobo so happy can figure it out.

I don't hate the mobo, I just said it wasn't for me. I have a family, I can't sit there for days on end tweaking, as much as I'd like to.

If the board is not for you, thats fine. That certainly is a personal decision, but none of us have any real idea about this motherboard except for those who are actually testing it.

 

HG has already said that he felt the infinity 975X did all this motherboard would do and then some. RG said that he could see where he would like this board more and more. I think it was clear that this would not be the fastest board to be released and the FSB was going to max out somewhere around 511. The bottom line here is while its not the fastest board around, it does offer a couple of things to the end user. It has also been pointed out that if your goal is find the max overclock, you really need to be using Phase because cooling is all important in reaching that goal.

 

I find it interesting that a Physics card slot has been added. While I guess I do not know for sure, I think I read somewhere that both Intel and AMD were working on intergrating the CPU with Graphics and possibly physics.

 

I am glad you have a family, and so do many others. We all have a life outside of the computing world. How each one of us decides to spend that time is up to them. It appears to me that you are posting in this thread simply because you have an interest in finding out what this motherboard is all about.

 

I am interested to see what kind of performance the combination of this board along with the release of the R600 video cards will have compared to others. Also this board is in the early stages. The Infinity has been out for some time now, and with each bios release, it appears that it continues to give the Infinity something extra. Isn't it possible that the ICFX3200 will benefit from bios releases as well? Do you think DFI is just going to abandon the board once they release it? Maybe those closer to the source know more than we do. So far, we have not even seen this motherboard released to a reseller so we really will not know anything except what HG, RG, and a few others with it have shared.
