... at stock clocks!
very nice

so any news on the ram yet?

txtmstrjoe. thanks for the info. I did not know dfi would put 2 pci-e x16 slots on a board and not have sli enabled. other than value/cost pound for pound it makes no sense, . I'm am learning a lot about these nf4 dfi boards.

N2Gaming, you may want to run this by Joe but I am pretty sure there was a "hack" for that motherboard to enable SLI. I believe the PCB is the same as the Ultra-D.

Good luck

It was actually a very smart move by DFI. Think about it: One PCB design, one PCB layout, same circuit traces... for the various variations you just changed the chipsets (nForce 4 Ultra, nForce 4 SLI) and, for some boards, added an extra SATA controller and four more SATA ports (hence the "R" in the model name - "R" for "RAID"). It's a very elegant, simple, economical production design ethic employed by DFI.

Bogey, about your RAM, I'm still sorting through some sources of info. I plead for a little bit more patience. I tend to be slow when it comes to researching; I don't want to give out bad info, you know?

Back to the LANParty boards: thlnk3r is right, of course. The older versions of the Ultra D could be modded so that SLI could be enabled on them. However, nVidia compelled DFI to alter the circuit tracings on the Ultra-Ds so that SLI could no longer be enabled. nVidia didn't want anyone to have "hacked" SLI... So, if your Ultra D is a newer revision, it cannot be modded to support SLI.
