    DFI NF4 Boards..

    I think Ill definatly be getting one of these.. seems to be the best of the nf4 boards..

    Ill also be running a 3000+ winnie and a X850XTPE, with CPU, GPU and NB watercooled, hoping for a nice overclock

    Cant really find out much baout these nf4 boards.. as noone has them yet.. but... anyway, heres a pic:



    now, oneof the things I notice, standard molex INPUT next to the NB. Now whats that for? I suppose maybe for psu's without the 24pin connector.. but no.. has to be something else...?

    Anyway, has hexus got plans for a review of this? please

    Also on the DFI site, it mentions there dual gfx thingy (SLI on non sli boards using 16x and 2x) but it states it works with ALL pci-e cards, and not just nvidias. Quite sure its a typeo.. hoping its not

    The molex will be for extra power to the graphics card in SLI mode, probably. That's what it's for on the ASUS A8N anyway.

    edit: It looks like they were gonna put the Silicon Image SATA RAID chip on there too. I wonder what happened to it.

    The SI3114 is only included on the SLI-DR board. DFI use the same pcb for all there nf4 boards iirc.
    The only other differnce between the SLI-D and SLI-DR is the DR has a bundle of cables with it... or something.. I *think*...

    I think its good that its not on the other boards. Ive heard that the SI3114, alteast on other mobos, doesnt get pci-locked.. so it should just make the board more stable without it...
