    Nope..I had it for about 6 months. Still have it running.
    Great overclocker. Search back the old threads, you'll find info on bioses.

    Re: Dfi Nfii Ultra Infinity

    got it installed yesterday, the only problem i had was the power switch from the case leads...for some reason dfi choose to label it differently,,....this board seems very quick, and all my bios settings were corrrectly set, when did that ever happen before...love nforce 2 boards, some of the best that nvidia has done......long live nforce 2 boards....though they are very hard to find new...

    my 9800 pro that i bought off ebay went bad, the guy said it was new, it sure did not look like it...do you think that the x800 pro would be overkill on this board??? could get a 6600-gt i quess

    I don't think it'd be overkill,I see ppl running x800xt's and similar VGA's.I just bought a 6800 Ultra and plan to run it with my CPU 2500-2600MHz.
    I'm also going to shoot for 1.5 gigs of ram,but I'm shure that will effect my OC

    Yes, this board, along with its sister LANparty board, were infamous for the [poor] location of very small resistors near the mounting holes for the CPU heatsink. Many people destroyed their boards when installing CPU heatsinks (like the SP-97) thanks to this

    I suppose this could be true.

    My very 1st build was w/LP b
    1st HS was slk700,then I used an si-97,I've also used the slk947u w/neo backplate

    I've always done research b4 using any HS,I've never had any probs

    Unfortunately I purchased my Nfii Ultra Infinity when they were 1st released (problems were not known at that time), so I learned the hard way Oddly DFI never redesigned the board to work around this issue...

    Re: Dfi Nfii Ultra Infinity

    I ran an X800 in that board for about a year, an upgrade from a 9700pro.... The x800 went above and beyond my expectations, and it ran BF2 @ 1280x960 with all the settings high, AA was application controlled and AF was 16x. This board is amazing too, easy to use, excellent overclocker and it will last for years hands down. Other than that, you might want to invest in some MOSFET heatsinks as this helps with your FSB overclocks. Some people never OC enough to even begin to need them, but either way they add a nice look to the board!
