Hehe, free plugs FTW.

If I have time tonight, I'll show off some pictures of thlnk3r's work on my Lian Li PC-V1000B. Oh, and some pictures of the first of my WC parts.

Ah, the P180. That was the first case my sig rig occupied. It looked great, but was a bit too cramped on the inside. Plus cable management was a bit of a challenge.

Hope you love yours, pez!

Good luck
No this is the NF4 ultra D/G board. As for voltage, I have it set to 1.6v, but according to smart guardian, its only getting 1.56v.

Its totally stable @ 400 on the nose. Ran Orthos blend for 2 hours with no issues. I think it still could go higher, though. Now if I could only find a CPU that could take it
I think my RAM is holding me back. While this RAM is good, it doesnt seem to like going above 200MHz. It seems as soon as it hits 201 everything starts going haywire (windows booting slowly, etc). Although, @ 400 clock, it'll run @ surprisingly tight timings 2-3-2-5, better than advertised 2-3-2-6. Im running it in dual channel so I have it set to 2T.

As for the CFX3200 board, as soon as im done messing with the Ultra D/G, Im planning on trying different hardware configs in it and see if any of them change the freezing issue that these boards seem to be plagued with. I noticed the other day that when I had all 4 DIMMs occupied it didnt freeze. But lets see what happens.

Joe, well some of the cuts weren't entirely straight. Free hand is something I am not best at

BlackOmega, this is most impressive. I think this is the fastest reference clock speed I have seen yet!

Good job

No wonder you insisted on me only looking at it in the darkness of the parking lot at Islands!



j/k I totally dig the work you did, thlnk3r! It will serve its intended purpose.

Ye gods! That is an INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE reference clock speed!

Erm, um, BlackOmega, what's your home address? I need yours (and thlnk3r's, too) for a home invasion robbery attempt...

Got some news guys. I'll in the nostalgic section during or just after March/April. I'll be heading to Phenom II 940 "maybe 920" with this DFI LP DK 790FXB-M2RSH AM2+. I have done a lot of thinking about 939 upgrades Vs new tech. There really isn't more I can upgrade on my current rig maybe other than the Vid Card.

My total upgrade to AM2+ will be about $550-$570 really depends on the actual price when the Phenom II is released.

I love my 939 rig, but I think it's time to move on. I'm not sure will I will do with the Opty 165 or DFI Expert just yet. The RAM is spoken for already and I will be taking the PSU and 8800GT to the new rig. That will save me some cash.

Thanks Joe. I almost forgot to mention the main reason for switching I'm trying to dabble in creating 3D illustrations and broaden my craft so I'm not stuck just doing comic book work. The Opty 165 does ok with 3D apps such as 3D StudioMax and Maya, but you can certainly tell it will be limited with the size of the projects. I'll need to upgrade the VidCard as well. I'll need something with a minimum of 1Gb but preferred 2Gb VidCard.

Trust me, you will absolutely adore the 790FXB .

Anywho... Just wondering if i could get some insight on a little problem i've encountered. Story is, got my paws on a GA-K8NSC motherboard. It's an old Nforce 3 chipset with AGP. So, i thought i'd put my 3400+ venice and my X700 in it and make a nice little shop computer. Problem is, no POST. I've tried clearing the CMOS et al. and all the components are verified to work.

Now, that in and of itself would be boring, but here's where it gets interesting. I put my opty 175 in, and what do i get? I get a friendly POST screen.

Okay, so the 3400+ is borked right? Wrong. I pop it into my MS-7093, and it works fine.

Latest bioses and everything.

Sorry for the wall of text .

I did the same to Joe's Lian Li case. The modifications have been very rewarding.

Good luck

Yes, It's working! . My 4 pin seemed like it was literally a half inch too short to run under the mobo, so I just put the mobo in screwed it in and there might be a slight bend in the mobo (not major), but I was reading that they're actually meant to flex a bit. Pics will have to wait til I find my phone or until tommorow when I get the really nice camera (parents have gone to bed). I'm really really happy with it though. A bit quieter and I def. don't hear that 10k RPM drive "thinking" anymore (BIG +). And this thing feels like a full tower it's about 133% of my Xion II mid tower. I do think despite the cable management holes missing, I did a pretty excellent job w/ it.

That is a WEIRD one, alex.

Any beep codes at all from the GA when the 3400+ is in?
