    Re: Rma'd board. Will i get same one back?

    Because the bad cap issue is a common problem, more than likely Epox has refurbished boards on the shelves to reduce the turnaround time. This can be a problem if you got one of the pre-Aug 2003...

    Re: Which Abit NF7 MoBo

    If you want an NF7-S Rev. 2.0, try to find one now. Newegg no longer sells it.

    Re: EPoX 9NDA 3+ T1 Support???

    The board is finicky with ram position. Label your sticks A and B and try all four permutations in the board to find where it errors the least. Then proceed to overclock the ram.
  4. Re: Highest FSB with 2x512MB Kingston HyperX PC3000 (BH-5).

    I know you guys are milking these boards for what it's worth until you upgrade, but the Epox 8RDA3+ is far superior to the NF7-S, if you're talking stability with 2x512 ram at CPC enabled. On a...
  5. Re: Highest FSB with 2x512MB Kingston HyperX PC3000 (BH-5).

    Been playing with a couple of NF7-S boards that seem to run high fsb 3D stable - at 235-238 anyway (highest I can get my Ballistix Memtest clean). 2x512 with CPC on. At 2.5-2-2-5 too :woot:.

    I...
  6. Re: Why can I run memtest 86+ #5 @ 227FSB but 3DMark01 only @ 205FSB? (NF7-S 2.0)

    I tested a brand-new NF7-S from Newegg and this one is also benching all four Marks and Aquamark at 235x11, 2x512 Ballistix at 2.5-2-2-5, 2.9 VDIMM. The board likes 1.4 VDD best, and amazing, runs...

    Re: Question on so-called 'high fsb' NF7-Ss

    Hmmmm, seems the last two NF7-Ss I tested the last couple of days may be 'high fsb' boards. Interestingly enough, one board is an RMAed replacement from Abit! It has black dimm slots circa late 2003,...

    Re: Question on so-called 'high fsb' NF7-Ss

    I have a question about the CPC-On or CPC-Off BIOSs. I assume a CPC-Off BIOS is off whether you enable CPC or not in the BIOS?

    I'm wondering whether the CPC-On BIOSs have relaxed memory stringency...
  9. Re: Why can I run memtest 86+ #5 @ 227FSB but 3DMark01 only @ 205FSB? (NF7-S 2.0)

    Guys, remember only a few NF7-Ss will run high fsb! Just as only a few will track VTT.

    I tried three boards so far and I have never been able to bench 3DMark2001 much above 223 mhz, even though...

    Question on so-called 'high fsb' NF7-Ss

    Even if you get a high fsb NF7-S, that still means you can't run up there with 2x512 ram with CPC enabled, correct? You still need a CPC disabled BIOS, no?

    So only 2x256 ram will run high fsb with...

    Re: EPOX 9NDA3 reporting wrong Volatage rails

    Anthraxx, sounds like you got a bad board. My 9NDA3+ reads rail voltages fine in the BIOS (at least it matches Everest dead on).

    Further confirmation: I checked the VDIMM with a multi and the BIOS...

    Re: EP-9NDA3+ with Winchester 3200 cant OC at all

    'Ballistix' is their class of overclocking modules. They sell a lot of sticks under just the Crucial name. Lotta guys go TCCD due to all the high fsb hype. You do get high buffered bandwith (like I...

    Re: EP-9NDA3+ with Winchester 3200 cant OC at all

    It is also rated DDR400 at 2-2-2-5. Why ram manufacturers do this, I don't know. 2-2-2-5 at 200 mhz is hardly a big deal.

    Keep in mind that ram is rated for 300 mhz at 2T. Pretty much impossible...

    Re: EP-9NDA3+ with Winchester 3200 cant OC at all

    I am at wit's end with GSKill TCCD. I rechecked my 'good' 2x512 LA sticks last night and while they run 278x9 Memtest clean (most of the time), e.g. five #5 loops clean, they are simply NOT stable in...

    Re: EP-9NDA3+ with Winchester 3200 cant OC at all

    The Corsair may indeed be sleepers; it's just that all you see is the hype over GSkills and OCZs. That's why Ballistix is also not popular, or ADATA.

    I notice my other 3500+ is the same you got;...

    OCZ has good tech support and will help you get sticks you are happy with. It might be simpler to get a set from them, but definitely ask them first on what is reasonable. If you want a pair that do...

    Re: so when IS the 9npa+ gonna reach stores

    The MSI (if you are talking Neo2 Plat), is a totally untweakable board. It has exactly the same BIOS as the 9NDA3+ except no adjustable chipset, which really comes in handy when you try pushing a...

    Re: EP-9NDA3+ with Winchester 3200 cant OC at all

    Souless, no, I don't think that PQI product is TCCD. The best PQI with TCCD is the DC kit rated PC3200 at 2-2-2-5. Make sure it is rated 2-2-2-5! They have all kinds of stuff rated 2-3-3-7, 2-3-2-5,...

    Re: EP-9NDA3+ with Winchester 3200 cant OC at all

    I was thinking maybe something is wrong with this 2x256 Vitesta PC600, but it does 302x9, 2.5-4-3-7 at 1T! I did a 3DMark2001 run and I could see the score was well down compared to 251x11, 2-2-2-5....

    Old 71.30s. I'm bad about updating drivers. I've bested those scores by a tad couple of times. Remember that rig smokes: 251x11, 2-2-2-5. Default clock and no cheats too! 1280x1024x32/85 mhz desktop,...

    I install all the Nvidia IDE drivers myself. Keep in mind I only run IDE, no SATA. I switch boards all the time and stuff like RAID I don't do, nor do I have any SATA drives.

    I'd have to say again, you really gotta experiment with the ram slots on the board. When I first ran the board, my PQI TCCD only ran in the #3/4 slots! I got BSs in the first two. I bet now, I can...

    Hmmm, I may need to try that again. I tested 2x256 versus 2x512 Vitesta PC600 stuff. What about Everest? That's what I used. I think I got:

    For 2x256=38.8/2902/7030
    For 2x512=38.3/3102/7260
