NF3 Ultra-D 939/AGP

Recommended Posts

3. 4x512 defaulting to DDR333 for me at 2T, instead of DDR400 at 2T

4. No DDR 200 divider option

5. Reporting of incorrect temps

 

These are known issues on other nForce3 motherboards, not just the nF3 UT Ultra-D.

Here's a polite email I got back from DFI from the email address supplied:

 

Dear Customer

Thanks for your letter of July 10. The board needs to be re-worked' date='

furthermore, new BIOS has been solved the problem. Please contact with

your retailer and apply for RMA service. I apologize for the

inconvenience may cause you.

Sincerely Yours truly,

DFI Inc.

I have received the same email from dfi and they have attached one pic in the email which show (red narrow) one resistance missing (r716) (on my board there is one resistance solder there),so I think they will desolder it if I send it to my retailer and for the next released board they will not solder it anymore.

A mass RMA of all the boards seems rather extreme.

 

I would be amazed if the problems are that severe.

 

EDIT: Ah, yes. I got the picture too, didn't notice it!

According to the manual there should be a BIOS write protect jumper but there's not one on mine, just a couple of solder points.

Still no answer, somebody allready tried the OCZ Memory booster? And if Im the first (probably not...) can it do harm to my motherboard if it's not compatible?

yep...

 

i've never used one before...but if the RAM draws its power from the +5v rail (I THINK!) then you can destroy the board...

 

what ram do you have??? is it BH-5??? or TCCD??? (or something different :P)

Guys, desoldering an SMD resistor is not that tough, assuming you have a solder iron. Putting them back on is a bigger challenge. Did DFI say what that resistor was responsible for? I could remove the one on my board as soon as I get home from work, if there's some compelling reason. Knowing what it does would help assess what removing it was supposed to accomplish. IE 1T stable, 166 Divider stable, mem slots 1,3 perform the same as 2,4 etc.
