NF3 Ultra-D 939/AGP

Guest Swagman6531

the problem with my memory is that when I set the HTT to high numbers my mem just freezes during all types of tests if my mem voltage is set to anything less than 2.7V. If I have it set to anything higher than 2.7V (eg. 2.75V) then I start to get multiple errors in memtest and failures in other testing programs. My problem is this.... the 602 BIOS version is the most stable for me except for the fact that it only hits either 2.65V or 2.75V and nothing in between. with any other version I los a lot in stability but I can hit exactly 2.7V making my mem perfectly stable.

You run 2x256 mem size. Have you try whit 2x512mb? Becouse the problem can be this for the 1T, the amount of the mem.

 

Bye

 

Yes, I posted 2X512 1T results back about 40 pages ... No problem....

Wow this m/b is performing well...for me anyways..Today I have not had the cold boot issue, 1st time since installing about a week ago.

That in not stable at 2.9 ...hehehe but..

Currently gaming at 2.77Ghz on air with no complaints at all. Edit

Now ,I think I hit the wall of my venice with this dfi.

 

 

prime 48h

 

48hprime28001584vfinal6qc.th.png

 

 

Bios 602 settings

 

311

x9

67

x3

1T / 2.5/ 4/ 7/ 3 (auto for the rest) (memory controller seems really weak)

C&Q disable

cpu vid control 1.400v

cpu voltage adj. +0.5 (bios : 1.60v cpuz : 1.60v speedfan : 1.60v)

chipset voltage 1.85v (bios : 1.80v speedfan : 1.81v)

Memory voltage 2.7v (bios : 2.72v)

Agp voltage 1.5v (bios : 1.48v)

 

ram in yellow bank with nexus 120mm fan

 

chipset fan replaced by titan full copper 4500rpm

 

heatsink on some mosfet like nf4

 

cpu ihs removed

 

Maybe we can summarize the point that we want to be fixed in the next released bios

 

 

1) vcore setting (accuracy)

2) ram setting (ad the missing setting provide with nf3 s754 and nf4 s939, as the divider 183mhz and 150mhz ...)

3) 1T trouble and improve the bh5/utt compatibility

4) improve the temp report

 

list to be completed...

hmmm, ok, i've only really got one problem...

 

when i restart my comp from windows, my PC just will not post and i have to manually reset it with the button...

 

and is it worth messing around with extra/replacing the cooling on the northbridge??? how will i know if the northbridge is overheating??? or do i just have to try and see???

I'd only worry about the chipset cooler "IF" it dies and or squeals like a stuck pig. Use it till it dies or pull the mobo out of the case to replace. Up to you. Unless you plan to run high volatge thru it I wouldn't worry about it...A simple swap with a Vantac Iceberq GPU chipset cooler works well if you do decide to replace it...

That is not the chipset as it does it to me as well and likely others they just are not describing it the same way. Like Windows cannot boot from a restart or often from a cold boot for me at times. Press reset button to head back to windows one more time and it will boot fully then.

You have to rebuild the RAID when you change controller types. When I had my NFII Infinity, my RAID set was built with the SI. When I changed to the MSI motherboard, it didn't have it and I couldn't use the RAID because there was no SI controller, just the Nvidia controller.

 

Well, if you observe in my post, my current Raid 0 array using this nvidia ctrlr

on this mobo was originally built 2 years ago on my last machine A7N8x-d2, Si3112a controller.

 

Like I said, stripe/chunksize. Its not controller specific.

 

Edit: It may be confusing since when the stripe is recognized by the

(scsi) controller at post, it cant find a bootable partition because it cant find

the nvidia RAID drivers (it found the si drivers).

From the XP os perspective, when after it posts it says "cannot load operating

system" then you have succeded.

The typical way to do it is to boot from the XP install cd (the Pre-Windows install

environment) then press F6 to load scsi drivers.

S)pecify additional drivers, then insertt the NVraid disk that came with the board.

There will be 2 drivers you have to pick, the "class" driver and the "disk" driver.

Pick the top one first, press enter. Hit 'S' again, then pick the bottom driver.

The drivers load, then your stripe data is now available to the installer.

Choose Install (not recover console), let it discover the previous install (ie: C:windows)

DO NOT install over it, instead select "Repair" the installation.

Do a normal install, reboot. When you come into windows the last time all your

updates will be gone. Right away it will bug you to Activate your copy. Do that

right away!!! Don't wait to do that because it will cause your system to freeze.

If at anytime the system freezes during install, turn the machine off, reboot to

where you left off. Keep going, then finally activate the os. I happened to use a

Netgear 311 before so the drivers were already loaded so I had no connect

problems, however if you use the on-board nic, pop in the mobo cd after the

os install finishes and just do the nic drivers manually from the cd. Don't use

any beta nvidia 6.37 nforce via the internet, use 5.10 from nvidia site. I wouldn't

trust any drivers on the cd other than the nic and sound. Then activate as soon

as possible.

After that, just windows update repedetly and definetely re-install any graphics

drivers, DO NOT TRUST M$ GRAPICS DRIVERS, they don't play nice with your system.

Pretty soon, you have your system back. This is a common method to those who

have in/reinstalled XP a thousand times. This also works if you happen to have

or are using a pci scsi raid or 133 card.

 

This whole exercise is because of 1 thing....... you can't load the nvidia raid

drivers ahead of time because their onboard. If it were a pci scsi, thats a different

story.

 

Edit: One more thing occasionally (and finally after all is done), re-install DirectX 9c. Do that religeously after any install/de-install of any drivers.

Also, when your done, go into Control Panel and uninstall old drivers. Check

hardware from system to make sure you didn't short yourself a driver "?".

Then your porn machines back in service.... hehe!

Does anyone here run LSI SCSI on this board? I made a post in a separate thread about this but maybe someone will read here. I just can't make my SCSI card work in this new board. I think it cinflicts with sata somehow, but even if I completely disable SATA it still doesn't work. BIOS detects everything fine but when it comes to booting nothing works.

Did you put it on the top of the boot order?

Otherwise its a driver issue. See post above if you have XP.

Not sure what LSI scsi is but seen it somewhere

Hey, yes it doesn't matter where in order it is.

It's not driver issue I can't even boot my system to install XP.
