Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! One of the most important features for overclocking enthusiasts on this board are the memory voltage selector jumpers DFI has placed just above the 24 pin ATX connector. It is a huge package with a motherboard, UV cables, a system carrier, a Front-X box, and even UV sheathing for your system cables. The best overclocking motherboard ever built? Most motherboards require some sort of voltage modification for really extreme levels of overclocking, to enable either more CPU, memory or chipset voltage. Rounding things off are a pair of standard PCI slots. Beginners Guides Cases and Access.

The fan is low enough for video cards – both ATI and nVidia – to mount ddfi. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! This arrangement worked well in our testing and dfu work fr for those who change memory frequently than in the crowded right-hand alternate location used on many boards. The tiny PCB’s are hard to align on the other boards and the holding mechanisms slo not always easy to negotiate.

Not only is it the fastest Athlon 64 motherboard we’ve ever tested, it’s also the most overclockable, by a long shot. Other motherboards have just as many USB ports overall but what good are they if they require a bracket which takes up a lanpadty expansion slot?

SLI motherboards tend to draw a little more power than usual, and so there is an effective warning to that end on the lanpparty pin ATX power connector. Yes you read that right F-O-U-R volts!

The sticker lists a few different system configurations and states approximately how much power each system will draw in total, and how many amps the 12V rail on your powersupply must be able to deliver. That’s an understandable strategy given the nForce4 SLI’s rough feature parity with its successor, whose extra PCI Express lanes convey few real-world performance benefits. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
