Will part with pieces if anyone is interested. PM me for HZ's or 3700 Sandy.
Lenzo, sad to hear that. So just (1) PCI slot failed and the entire motherboard is unusable?

Good luck

That EB drive is pretty old also. First introduced in 2002 at 5,400RPM with 2MB of cache. Perhaps it's MTBF (mean time before failure) is near.

Please follow up with us on the memtest results, I think we're a bit curious.

Good luck


I'll scan it if I can get my mitts on a CD drive to stab in my rig, or a flash drive...I'll figure something out.

I made it a point to enable SMART in the bios, as it crashed again while I was downloading the two apps on another computer. Both of my drives are smart-enabled as well.


AFAIK my 40 is 7200rpm. It's IDE tho, so it's slow as hell. I rarely use it tho, more or less like that storage shed in the backyard that stores all that junk someone wants to keep but has no real use of. And no, it wouldn't surprize me if this thing's life is about over. :\\ It's the single oldest component in my computer right now.

Apparently the pci slot is gone. I've attempted installing other cards that I've used on other rigs to no avail (7600gt, 9600GT and 8800GTS 320). I never modded the bottom slot, even if I did it wouldn't be up to snuff. I just let it go and upgraded with a new build.

The DFI served me well for 3 years or so, got it when it was the bomb.
3.03g for 2 years without issue, backed down to 2.75g.
Sad to see it go.

So here I sit with a 3700 Sandy (KAB1E) and 2x1 g DDR GSkill HZ's (273fsb @3-5-5-8) that I don't have any use for.

Testecull, I'm pretty sure WD400EB-11CPF0 is a 5,400RPM drive. It's a EB...she's an oldy. When it's running does it whine a lot? I have a few of these drives laying around...brings back some memories

Good luck

Lenzo, if you don't have any luck selling the parts here then give the For Sale section a shot.

Good luck buddy

Just because your WD 160GB drive is brand new doesn't mean it can't be bad. I've received drives from WD that were bad out of the box. Please download the Western Digital Diagnostic tools and burn them to a CD. Boot to the CD and please perform a surface scan on the drive. You can download these tools by going here: http://support.wdc.com/product/downl...sid=30&lang=en.

As far as I know memtest86+ can be burnt to a CD. You can download the .ISO by going here: http://www.overclock.net/downloads/1...memtest86.html. Burn it as an "image" and boot to it. Run tests 5 and 8 each for at 20-30 minutes.

Let us know

Good luck
Just to confirm, MemTest86+ can indeed be burnt to run as a bootable CD. That's how I have it on my non-DFI LANParty motherboards.

As a matter of fact, it's as loud as my Delta as far as whine goes. You can tell there's a motor running in there.


And to think I used to boot off that thing...

hey guys, it's been a while since I've posted in here .
Just a little update on my DFI motherboard: I tried it with a thermaltake 430w which I assume is higher quality than my Ultra 600w (although I can't say for sure, I don't remember the amperage on either one). Still gets stuck on "detecting memory." I can't find any bulging or broken caps. There is a possibility that maybe a little chip broke off, but I highly doubt that. The problem is that I can't really tell which "solder spots" are supposed to have chips on them and which are left empty normally.

Any other opinions?

nate, I forget now if this suggestion has been offered before, but here's my normal procedure on first boot with a DFI LANParty motherboard:
  • Clear CMOS (by using the jumper AND by removing the CMOS battery) completely
  • Install only one RAM DIMM in the further orange DIMM slot
  • Make sure all the power connectors (including the 4-pin molex AND the floppy drive power connector) are attached to the board
  • Reset the jumper to the normal position

The motherboard should be ready for first boot after this.

Hope this helps you, nate!
