DFI Ultra-D owners! get in here

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Those of you that own this board...what good and bad things do you have to say about this board?

i currently own the Asus A8N-SLI deluxe and am experiencing too many weird problems with it and i'm on the brink of ditching this board. What do you guys think of the Ultra-D?

is this really the best overclocking board as some of you make it seem to be?

i'm not on too much of a budget, i just want the best mobo for my money w/out spending extra for bells and whistles.

If you are not interested in SLI, then the Ultra-D would be hard to beat. The Ultra-D will allow you to take your computer to the breaking point. When you reach your max overclock it will not be your motherboard holding you back. Look at the nF4 SLI-D if you are interested in SLI.

Even if you were to get the Ultra-D it is SLi capable. (Pencil Mod)

i only have one vid. card right now and sli isn't on my top priority...but i may consider buying another one in the future.

the ultra-d is non-sli? why does it carry to pci-e x16 slots then?

i don't see an sli-d on newegg...are you referring to the sli-dr?

Well Another one of the best motherboards for both performance and overclocks would be the DFI LANPARTY UT CFX3200

The BEST is either the CFX3200-DR (Failed to mention this one) or the SLi-DR Expert.

The sli-d does have all the same options as the Ultra-D however it doesn't COME with SLi enabled. A pencil mod you ask: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10736, it enables SLi Support.

THE RDX3200 chipset was meant to counter/compete with the nForce 4 Chipset.

P.S. can you please post what you have to say in one post rather than a few, one after another.

Man, isnt CFX3200-DR a crossfire board. There is no need to recommend this board when ULtra-D is out there.

And if you planning to go SLI in the future, don't bother with Ultra-D because you will pay $10-$20 for SLI bridge and prolly $10 for circuitwriter
