Yet another-DFI LP nF4--Replacement - Page 2

post #11 of 16
FI boards can be a pain to set up properly (usually it's memory related). Most people that give it bad reviews are those that have problems setting it up and/or are not that experienced. The board works and does what it's meant to do.

Yeh, thats what I realised. and a lot of the people that were complaing were complaing about the SLI-DR Expert, not the SLI-DR. I am sure I just got a bad board. I have checked the ram and both sticks work. I seriously DOUBT there is anything wrong with my CPU and there seems to be nothing wrong with my gfx card according to my friend, so at this point, all fingers are pointing at the motherboard currently in my room I am going to RMA it on tuesday and order another one the same day so I can try to build the computer again over next weekend. This time I'll follow DFI's build guide even though its almost exactly what I did except for the fact I had mine in the case and they want you to have the mobo out of the case.

Wish me luck

i had some problems with my SLI-DR posting. Sometimes it would other times it wouldnt. Thought it was my cheap ram but no. Never realy found the problem. But all i did was take it out of raid and write all zeros to both hdd's and it was fine. i think in my case it was RAID who knows. Im EXTREMELY happy with the board now.

well I read that you might wanna consider Asus, and from a person that has only bought Asus motherboards over the years I must say I am very happy with the quality they have. I dunno why but I guess DFI has this halo effect for overclocking but I beg the differ I seen and tried some extreme overclocks and they seem pretty stable. Anyways I love my Asus I can go over the 1000mhz and remain stable (250x11). Anyways are you 100% sure it was DOA? cause I had to RMA my Asus A8N32 two times to finally realize that my PSU was faulty. Anyways best of luck on whatever choice you make

I agree that DFI is not the only way to go to obtain good OC's. My Epox was able to overclock the same as my DFI Ultra-D, as far as CPU speed (in matters of memory DFI is one of the best). In my opinion the best NF4 boards out now are by EPOX, ASUS, MSI, DFI (in no particular order).

Well, I'll go think about it. I was going to use the same mobo you have and was told to go with the DFI. I am not THAT interested in overclocking, but eventually I wan't to so if the DFI mobo works fine without overclocks, for now, then i will just use it. If I order the DFI again on tuesday and it doesn't work with DFI's build guide, I probably will never get one again....heh
