    Done pershoot.

    I flashed the 618-3 and set things at:

    I played Far Cry for a couple of hours this afternoon. I tried 10x280 and it still crashed and to run 10x278 I had to run the Vcore at 1.71 so I dropped to 10x175 and set the VCcore at 1.67 which is where I'll leave it unless Merlin's new BIOS performs a miracle.

    This is what Riva Tuner shows for my 6600GT while gaming:
    Core Clock 501.4MHz
    Mem Clock 1002.4MHz
    Core Temp 53C (same as my temp gun was showing)
    Ambient Temp 40C

    Going the extra 5MHz is not worth it to me considering the voltage and temps you have to run. Maybe if I was using water or freon but not on air.

    Re: DFI nF4 builder's guide

    615 lived less than 3 days my friend. In fact only very few ever flashed to it. I can't report any problems with 618-3. I really like this DFI, almost as much as I liked my NF7-S in its glorious age, when it ruled supreme.

    Side question.
    With the popularity of Bootable CD Bios flashing apparent, has flashing from the floppy or in Windows been a problem for people?

    Yeah - when you don't have a floppy drive or aren't familiar with DOS command lines.

    Is 618-3 the best choice for TCCD? I might try the 618s even though I'm good now.

    They're the reason I got memtest error free at DDR630 1t. Your mileage may vary though, but in the very least I doubt they'll do you any harm.

    Re: DFI nF4 builder's guide

    Right on, I'll check them out. Can I keep the same ram settings as now (the ones from the link you provided)? I was reading over there at DFI Street (btw, that place sucks) that the timings for 510s will not work with the new 618s and that you'll have to experiment. Any truth to this?

    Re: DFI nF4 builder's guide

    Not in my case bro, I just "cmos reloaded" the old settings after flashing and as you can see in my screenshots I even tightened things up a bit in a few areas, so far I'm chilling error free.

    EDIT: Oh BTW, I think pershoot updated his BIOS CD with the 618s.
