Smolt Makes The Intel Move. What Dfi X48 Board ? Dfi Fricks Needed

Recommended Posts

When you change it to "Strong", you need to save and exit then shut down the rig. Leave it shut down for 10mins or so with the power disconnected. Then reboot. The reason for this is that changing from weak to strong alters your fine delay values. If you just went straight back into the O/s from a bios change, your fine delay values would be wrong.

SLI does not work on X48 boards. So Pick some ATI cards or go with an SLI motherboard. :)

 

There is a soft mod to allow SLI on all intel chipsets. It's just a software string. Google it. YAY GOOGLE! ALL HAIL GOOGLE!

Any ideas?

 

I am running 3.85 here. Got the info from this location... http://csd.dficlub.org/forum/showthread.php?t=12029

 

I can't seem to get it stable any higher than 3.85 so far either. It appears the x48 is a more busy chip than the p45. I have had 4 hour OCCT runs at 4.25GHz on the UD3R, but not repeatably. I know the P45 clocks higher for a fact.

 

I also know that with a X48, I can run my HD5970 and a GT 240 together for pure graphics power and physx at the sacrifice of a slight bit of clock speed. I would rather have every feature available for every game than limit myself in one factor or another. With the DFI UT X48 2TR, I have the space to do it.

P.S.: I had a scare today, updating the bios on the UT 2TR... I winflashed the bios, and it froze. Thank goodness for backup CMOS technology. :D

 

P.P.S.: You can run SLI on ANY intel chipset. It's easier than it seems.
