Most motherboards require some sort of voltage modification for really extreme levels of overclocking, to enable either more CPU, memory or chipset voltage. Of course, enthusiasts desire more than checkbox features. Both locations worked well in our testing. When a UV cold cathode is placed inside the case, these slots will glow brightly, while the black PCB below will fade into the background. Not only is it the fastest Athlon 64 motherboard we’ve ever tested, it’s also the most overclockable, by a long shot.

The best overclocking motherboard ever built?

We complained about the pin blocks in our review of the DFI SLI, but after working with the card edge boards, they are no better than the pin blocks. Voltage, fan status, and temperature monitoring. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Don’t let the unnecessarily awkward name put you off, though. We’ve yet to encounter a chipset-level high definition audio implementation lanpafty supports DVD-Audio playback, and there are precious few other sources for high-def content.

Traditionally brand-name capacitors that come from Japan are considered the best, and we’re pleased to report that the ones found on this motherboard are all Japanese made. However, NVIDIA has had to scale back ActiveArmor’s effectiveness to address data corruption issues with the nForce4 chipset family, so its impact may be more muted than we’ve seen in the past. There are no rear ports for a Parallel Printer or serial devices, but there is an onboard header for an external serial device an IR header.


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 ali-dr powersupply must be able to deliver.

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.

That’s an understandable strategy given the nForce4 SLI’s rough feature parity with its successor, whose extra PCI Express lamparty convey few real-world performance benefits. Unfortunately, the SiI rides the PCI bus, so it’ll have to share limited bandwidth with other peripherals.

Despite impressive storage and networking capabilities, the nForce4 SLI falls flat in the audio department. Dell returns to the xli-dr market after six years. SATA connectors are to the right of the nF4 chipset and the magnetic levitation fan.

In fact, DFI has been so successful that it is hard to imagine that the company only entered the enthusiast market two years ago. In fact, some motherboard manufacturers have passed over the X16 in favor of new designs that use the plain old nForce4 SLI. Both locations worked nt4 in our testing. RAID 5 can be implemented on this controller with 3 hard drives.

Of course, enthusiasts desire more than checkbox features. As you will see later in our audio tests, the Karajan module was a much better performer than what we expected when we first saw the onboard Realtek codec. Yes you read that right F-O-U-R volts!

There’s plenty of CPU and chipset voltage to go around too. Beginners Guides Cases and Access.

About us Privacy policy Mailing nd4 Mobile. The fan is low enough for video cards – both ATI and nVidia – to mount properly. The IDE connectors are at our preferred upper right edge of the motherboard, and the floppy connector is a board edge connector located on the right edge around the middle of the board.

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.

Newbies mark my words though, this motherboard offers you voltages high enough to seriously damage your system components!
