    Is there any release notes with the different BIOS versions to explain what changes were made? I understand the -1, -2, -3 numbers indicate the RAM type the BIOS was optimized for, but I don't know which BIOS supports Dual-Core Athlon X2s, if any.

    I am especially interested in the difference between 5/10 and 6/18 BIOS versions. Any additional information would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -EnormuS

    Oooops!, Just found the beta BIOS section on DFI's website. I guess the 5/10 version supports dual core Athlon 64s. But I would still like to see the release notes on the 6/18 BIOS.

    I have DFI Ultra-D NF4 mobo and venice 3000 cpu. I have just flashed with the 02/07/2005 Beta SLI-DR/Ultra-D/SLI-D N4D702-3 (oskar wu beta) N4D702-3.zip. But now, pc is not booting. It was producing BEEP!, BEEP! sounds. Then, I removed the cmos battery, inserted again. It runs now. 233 DRAM/FSB looks very good. But it is not stable. I set it 233, pc is not booting although the all setting are default but only ddr/fsb:233. My ram is OCZ dual channel platinum ddr600.

    A little help needed

    Excelent thread, among other excelent threads regarding the DFI NF4ultra!

    My problem is finding my way through all the information. I am fully aware of the fact that different systems acts in different ways, but I would jump sideways around the computer if just someone could give me a little startup-advice on this matter:

    Have 1gig (2x512) pc3200 OCZ Gold "OCZ4001024ELDCGE-K" wich I pressume is BH-5 sticks. Over at #ocshoot.no (on irc) I was encouraged to use the 310p bios by some and the 623-3 by others. I flashed to 623-3 (thanks -pershoot for making the DFI_Biosrom).

    Then I started searching for information on what settings to use with my BH-5 sticks. I found plenty of threads on the issue, where most of the settings where the same only slightly different in some settings. Tried to setup the bios for -stability at first (with no fsb/htt oc).

    Then I ran the "onbios" memtest86+ for a coupple of minutes. After some time the memory fails (tried two times, it failed on the same address both times).

    Now after surfing around for more info I see that 623-3 maybe not is the best bios for my hardware at all, and that the 623-2 probably is the one I should go for.

    Ok, nuff said about that.

    - what bioses should I test? (knowing that a coupple of them might do well for me)
    - what DRAM settings should I go for?
    - what ramslot should I use? yellow or orange? 1-4?

    hey...

    Had to register this time.

    I tried the 623-2 bios just after the 623-3 and with the same settings as those on the link you offered me GravediggA. Doesn`t seem like the 623-2 likes my BH-5 either. Funny though, the error commes on the same place each and every time. I ran the v1.55 memtest 2 passes and the memory failed at ffffffeb both times as seen here (the first time)

    all tests for now at stock speed.

    equipment:
    DFI NF4 Ultra-D
    2x512OCZ pc3200 GOLD (the OCZ4001024ELDCGE-K, pressumably BH-5) in orange (2-4) slots
    Venice 3800+

    I do believe I have to try another bios just now!

    I thought it was kinda funny to use a tras of 00, since I`ve heard that the sum of the tras and the trp should equal the trc (2+5=7)...

    Well, so i tried the TRAS=5 setting booted into Memtest86 v1.55 but after a little while the memory fails at ffffffeb like it dit before...

    (I`m still on the 623-2 bios, unclocked)

    Heading over to the 510-2fix since I`ve heard good things about it (just have to find the mini-iso by pershoot first :) )

    Anyway, it isn't normal that ram craps out with standard clocks and timings.. :confused:
