    The DFI Infinity Ultra is exactly the same as the LanParty Ultra B, without the bling. That would make the NF7 the third best. Don't count the AN7 out of the running either. Of the 4 boards, the AN7 is my favorite to work with. All have their own quirks.

    I count the 2 DFI's as one ;).
    A clear point is, I forgot the AN7. That was maybe, I never had the opportunity to find one at the right price. I always have to look after the money, so some wishes remain wishes ... .

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I had the opportunity to pick up spme an7s through the years but I was under the impression they weren't as good as the nf7-s. Oh and the kt880 based epox board I had was a great one also. It clocked like a beast too.

    That's subjective. The AN7 definitely couldn't do the same FSB's as the NF7. Most stopped cold at 235-250. But the voltage options were better/higher than the NF7, thus needing less, if any volt mods. Stability wise, the AN7 was a better board.

    well the build quality of the Coolergiant is a notch (and a huge one) above the Noisetaker serie, the anodized aluminium casing is thick and when i write thick i mean "wtf 2mm thick no possible way to bend that casing" and the fan design was a bit more efficient at my taste (i had a Noisetaker II back) Enermax had some real good PSU back there ... now hum ... i need to do some research :D might find some interesting things

    yeah indeed ... i might have found my next PSU brand if i go 290 CFX later ...

    Coincidence. I just won the 385 Watt model, hope the power distribution is good for my pending 486 build.

    i had a Noisetaker II and its thinner than the Coolergiant : same as every PSU good or not, no doubt they are good :)

    indeed totally not the same build quality as this.
    [​IMG]
    :D

    for a 486? overkill... :) btw its a 380 not 385, 385 is the model designation (like my EG485AX is a 480) the gold one is cute ... altho a bit to blingy :D

    i'm guessing its a typo for 'quite' as in "very heavy":roll:

    on another subject i got another 'somewhat' old-ish laptop from my brother which later on i'll be cleaning and snap a few pics of it

    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 )
    P_20140817_093506_HDR.jpg

    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 :)

    rja9fMVGnkGtKdoBUTZTeQ_1.jpg --V1NyEqoUyZrDf-hNV59g_1.jpg

    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
