If you want to push overclocking a little further, the LanParty boards and competitors might be a bit better. Join me as we explore all the little things that make this board stand out. Benchmarking continued Page 8: We’re a little uncomfortable pushing our CPUs even to that level, though with water cooling or something more exotic, a higher voltage level might prove useful.
Engineer Oskar Wu has added even more resistors this time to allow near full drive from the memory etherneg. We’ve resized the images for comparison, with TigerDirect on the left and Newegg on the right.
We prefer channel A to be slots 1 and 2 with B being 3 and 4, as the majority of people will run only two DIMMs, and a bit of extra breathing room isn’t a bad idea.
DFI NF4 SLI-DR Expert – Can the best get better?
True stereo line level outputs. This omission is a hard one to figure out based on the many changes made on of this board, considering the current proliferation and wide availability of SATAII hard drives.
It’s only a small percentage speed jump to 2. What remains, then, are the last three components that will generally have an impact on your overclocking endeavors.
Having selected the processor and motherboard, we’re still only half way through our critical component choices. Other than a slight difference in contrast levels and viewing angle, we can’t spot any changes. AC power failure recovery Hardware Monitor. Log in Don’t have ng4 account?

Also found on the rear are the audio jacks for microphone, line in and line out as well as four USB 2. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Here’s a better shot of our particular board. We’ve already given our warnings about overclocking, however, so do what you will.

While neither are cutting edge, both provide more than adequate performance. During setup of the board, we came to realize that the PC Power and Cooling Turbo-Cool SLI PSU on our review bench does not include this new style 12V plug, so we utilized the standard 4-pin 12V plug, which fit fdi on one side of the 8-pin connector.
Often, the best way to differentiate a motherboard is with the little things.
We’d also prefer a larger heat sink on the Northbridge, perhaps with passive cooling. That sort of work is often for a real job, though, and we’re hesitant to suggest that anyone overclock a system that is being used for important work. So, with the processor and chipset dictating much of a motherboard’s performance and feature set, manufacturers have been forced to innovate in new areas to make their boards stand out in a sea of similar competitors.
Besides, we’re inclined to take DFI at their word. Audio is provided by their Karajan 8 Channel audio card utilizing the AC97 codec, again the same setup as the previous generation.
