    you should know it's your typo :roll:

    details: quite a perfect fit eh? plus the TY-147 give a direct flow on the back Mosfet heatsink

    i think i can use a 2nd TY-147 duh on SKT775 the ram slot were further than on following SKT (well those XMS2 800 are low profile ... so no worries :D )

    also i found a Seagate Barracuda 120gb 7200.7 (ultra ATA) in my wonderbox, until i get some cheap deal on SATA that should do it :)

    altho GTX260 are easier to find and ... eh? cheaper ... 20chf for the 1st one and free for the second one ... cons: 4x6 pin PciEx needed :D

    hard to find some card (well, its either they are too expensive for what they are or only 1 available )... and i need 4 of them (2 for the Striker and 2 for the Supermicro)

    Just won an NF7-S. What's the difference between a v1 and a v2?

    Not sure what the difference is on that. I have an NF7-S v2. I often wondered what the difference is between the two.

    Actually @ThE_MaD_ShOt would probably know the difference. Maybe he will chime in and let us know. :p

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    The version 2 has the Nfroce 2 ultra chipset. V2 offically supported 200 fsb and didn't need the volt mod to run over 205 fsb. 2.0 had fixes with the SATA and temperatures / voltages being more accurate (still not perfect). Though some 1.2's were almost as good as the v2's. Oh and to others dismay the nf7-s v2 is still ranked the king of Nforce 2 ultra boards.

    Thanks

    I won't know which I have til it arrives as he used a stock image and eBay stock specs, although he assures me the board is identical to the pic.. It was cheap anyway - £5.49 shipped :)

    Yeah I did my studying back in the day on Nforce 2 boards. lol And out of all of them I owned I only had one go bad and it was still under warranty so all was well there. Oh and I did find another really great socket A board which I love. The Epox 8krai-pro. It had the Kt880 chipset which was the only via chipset board with dual channel.

    The version 1.x NF7's weren't even close to the performance of the version 2.0 overclocking wise.
    Bios's are not interchangable either.

    Let's hope mine is a v2 then. Although I'm not buying just for overclocking, it'll be nice to be able :)

    Hehe ...

    Ok, let me explain. The V1 was a flying bomb with a ramjet-engine. It was not very fast and could be intercepted by fast allied planes (like the Spitfire, the american P51 Mustang, P38, P47, ...) just by tipping a wing on the V1 wing.
    The V2 was a real rocket with supersonic speed and couldn't be intercepted. The only defence against these was bombing the launch sites in france.

    Now to something friendlier. I'm building the heat exchanger for the peltier booster at the moment. The cooling water from the cpu will flow through this copper radiator, which will be cooled by 4 130W TEC's. The TEC'S will be cooled by two 360mm Magicool radiators.

    Also I sold the Airplex EVO 360 and bought another XSPC RX360. Now this looks pretty good in my eyes.

    ok ok that's enough for the abdominal muscle session ... BACKFIRE :roll:

    technically the V1 was a Pulso-reactor (might be different than a Ramjet) basically you can call it the mother of all cruise missile

    wing tipping maneuver
    [​IMG]

    then the V2 is the father of all ICBM ...
    [​IMG]

    you can say what you want about 2nd worldwar and germany ... but they where quite advanced on their time ... also on jet propelled planes (albeit not totally perfect... thanks goodness)

    this is hardware ... this is old .... could be nostalgic ... OK THEN back to the Computer hardware
    Wunderbar.

    oh well i don't regret my 2 DC7900 with C2D E8500 i sold ... that 8400 beat them with ease (well the DC7900 mobo is nothing like a Striker Extreme... )

    for start starter.jpg

    oh well ... i have my HTPC, since that setup is silent well the coolergiant the TY-147 (1.3k RPM) and the R7 (25% fan) are not noisy at all ...

    one thing i like with ASUS R.O.G board is the ... leds ... while my MVIIR has a nice red line that little beauty has a lining of blue led (for "finding with ease the onboard connector even in the dark"... :roll: ) from the bottom to the top right corner :)

    time for joke'n bench bueheheh

    1st one, obviously my beloved FFXIVARR, as expected (CPU 3.450ghz RAM 920mhz) the overlay in the bench show 3.5ghz oh well ... +15% still and never got above 67° CPU and 43° GPU
    compare this to the 2600~ of the DC7900 and his E8500@3.16
    bench 1.jpg

    NEXT! (again do not disturb, blah blah blah... )

    woops ... 4:12AM ... hum i guess i go to sleep ... lucky me i work at 6PM but still ... a bit tired 2nd part later :D

    Just finished my Pentium 4 rig,and Windows 7 runs awesome on it!

    Specs:


    MB - ASUS P4P800-VM w/ Aopen AX4SPE MAX II BIOS (OC range up to 250MHz!:rockout:)
    GPU - Palit Geforce FX5200 128MB 64 bit reflashed with Winfast A340TDH BIOS :peace:
    RAM - 1GB DDR 400 (1x512MB,1x256MB.2x128MB)
    DVD - TSSTCorp SH-S182D (solid Samsung drive :cool:)
    PSU - Delux ATX-400W P4
    Case - "Human" brand,no model
    HDD - 80GB WDC Caviar SE SATA
    CPU - Intel Pentium 4 1.8A 2.40GHz Northwood

    A good thing about all of this is that after the stupid ASUS heatsink broke off,I glued a silver ASRock heatsink,and the key part is that I glued it in the same position as the northbridge.
    Now even with the overclock on the CPU my HSF and northbridge heatsink neither get hot,in fact those are almost stone cold. The only thing that heats up a bit is my FX5200.

    I had a hard time finding the A340TDH BIOS rom for my FX5200 since TPU seems to have BIOSes for ONLY 6200 and above -___-

    next step : Sky Diver. the RAM OC was unstable to i set the RAM/FSB ratio to "sync" (basically a 1/2) CPU 3.600ghz RAM 800mhz (duh!) 55°CPU 39° GPU
    bench 2.jpg

    also added a corsair SP120 (using a CM speed reducer, funny enough i use the 1200rpm but the bios and monitoring still show 1560 instead )

    and for the last one ... a lil Valley for the joke.

    Great news. My NF7-S arrived today, and it's a V2. Can anyone send me (email) the full contents of the driver/apps CD?

    Thanks Stinger. It's not my most powerful AGP board (NCCH-DL gets that award) so it'll be good to have original overclocking tools. Price I paid I can afford the risk of blowing it up :)
