trying to get into BIOS and it won't let me. When I reboot, it goes from the LanParty banner, quickly to the "verifying data...something" thing and then starts loading windows..

is there any windows utility program that I could use...? Any other way of getting into BIOS>?

I have that same board and it should be the "delete" key (Del). Just make sure you keep hitting it when you start the computer on the first screen...right when it says NF4 Ultra....
Also, you might have to use a PS2 keyboard or something else...that's odd..
Reset your CMOS ?

i got into BIOS (thanks tytlyf) i upped the FSB to 213 and running 1917.2mhz... anything I should do after that..? I ran my temp settings and it still hovers the same at idle at 25 degrees...
I did however start at 220, but it wouldn't load up windows...so i went back into BIOS and started at 210 and worked my way up to 213...gonna try a bit more now...

k.. as of right now, ,I upped my FSB to 216, my multiplier is at x 9.0 and core speed at 1944.2mhz

at 217, windows won't load.....and my cpu voltage is around 1.376v

Temp is at 26-28 and holding....How come it won't let windows load at FSB - 217? It seems like it has more potential....but I just don't want to make the wrong settings....

and my core speed licks b*lls... again thanks guys for your time....

I hope you know how to adjust your voltages, and every other setting...here it goes..

267 x 9
HTT x 4 or 3
Vcore 1.5 (vid = 1.5, vid special = auto)
Memory divider 166
Memory voltage 2.7

This should have you running at 2400. If it doesnt boot, it's your vcore not being high enough.

Please post a link to the type of memory you have, show me where you bought it, i want to check out it's spec's/.

You should make sure you have your Bios flashed to the latest one, especially with a DFI board. I would recommend the 704-2bta moddified bios for you.
As far as your HTT and other settings. They are located under "Genie Bios Settings"
