    Default The King who inherit from overclocking blood vessels -LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R

    Nvidia Chipset has had performance of leading heroes all the time on AMD
    platform, this time after AMD launch the AM2 socket CPU, Nvidia also
    introduce the relevant chipset at once too.
    The most high end chipset is nF590 SLI that support EPP technology and
    dual PCI-E X16 SLI that are most powerful chipset in AMD platform nowadays.





    Begin from K8 754 nF3, until K8 939 nF4 later on the LANParty series are
    always the pride of DFI.
    DFI LANParty series are overclocking pioneer among many mobo makers.

    The user already can purchase the high-end AM2 product "LANParty UT NF590
    SLI-M2R " on the famous e-tailer a few days ago , I believe it will not
    disappoint with DFI overclocking fans.








    To be frank ...This pattern of packing is used for a very long time.

    Though own competitiveness of the products is strong, but change a new
    style or more beautiful pattern may contribute to products marketing

















    Product accessory include LANParty sticks, simple and easy installation guide,
    Audio module, IO share panel
    Cables of Floppy/IDE/SATA, Device Driver CDROM and complete User manual























    Full view of the Board




































    Under left of the mobo include of Two PCI-E X16s , One PCI-E X8 ,
    One PCI-E X1 and three legacy PCI slots
























    Check right of the mobo, the digital PWM design that take ahead PC industrial.

    This kind of design mostly appeared in Sever grade system in the past that
    provide steady power no matter overclocking or not all the time.

    There are extra SIL 3132 chips in the middle, offer two SATAII devices, the
    whole mobo SATAII devices are up to eight























    On left corner of M/B, You can find the same memory routing pattern on DFI
    LAN Party series motherboard recently.




















    Rear side configuration without Karajan audio module is installed
























    IO




















    5 phase Digital PWM






















    All the capacitors are Japan brand .
    Left in the middle is connector for Karajan audio module. This audio module
    consists of Realtek ALC855 7.1 channel audio chip.























    NF590 SLI



















    New style power on logo


















    Nvidia only authorizes EPP technology to Corsair at present,
    The feature must SLI ready memory certification ( EPP ) and NF590 present at the same time.

    Support EPP memory ---> Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3
















    Test platform
    CPU:AMD AM2 Althon64 X2 4800+
    MB: LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R
    DRAM:Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3
    VGA:ELSA 730GT 256B3 DTV
    HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
    POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler:Tower112























    DDRII 1005 CL3 3-3-4 achieve?!








    DFI NF590 SLI-M2R have advantage of SLI Ready memory, large-scale copper
    cooler, 5 phase digital PWM , 8 SATAII and the Japan made capacitor ,
    Does DFI still be the winner in the overclocking campaign through above mention advantage feature?
    (Let us check it on next BIOS and overclocking benchmark review.)

    Default

    Certainly BIOS is the advantage that DFI has been in a leading position all
    the time in OC ability , let us preview the LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R BIOS
    feature more detail



    Bios main page














    Parameters setting page for CPU , DRAM , north and south bridge .















    RAID and Audio page















    Page of the voltage per device














    CPU voltage control from 1.00000V to 1.60000V














    Base on the CPU VID setting you can extra add voltage from +100.1% to
    121.1%















    DDRII voltage control range from 1.70 to 3.00V

















    Memory configuration page















    DRAM Driver Strength setting page















    Memory Timing setting page part II

















    nF590 proprietary EPP ( SLI-Ready Memory ) setting item .
    The SLI-Ready memory item can be enable if the DRAM supports EPP ( SLI-Ready memory.)















    DFI exclusive function ---> CMOS Reloaded which can save four groups of BIOS setting parameters.

















    one more clearer photo of power on logo screen



















    Test platform
    CPU:AMD AM2 Althon64 X2 4800+
    MB: LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R
    DRAM:Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3
    VGA:ELSA 730GT 256B3 DTV
    HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
    POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler:Tower112












    Friendly user interface of Chipset driver installation software.













    High DRAM bus overclocking rate is top criteria for One excellent
    overclocking mobo except the extensive one with the voltage and
    frequently.

    DDRII 800 CL3 3-3-9 1T memory bandwidth















    DDRII 800 CL3 3-3-9 1T is steady.
    Memory working voltage is 1.93V( Bios set to 2.13V)















    Memory performance : DDRII 1162 CL4 4-4-4 2T .
    The CPU almost reach limit itself . ( VDIMM 2.17V : BIOS set on 2.29V)
















    DDRII 1178 CL4 4-4-4 2T memory bandwidth

















    What is the limitation ?
    DDRII 1005 CL3 3-3-4 2T is reached!
















    SmartGuardian seem show lower voltage than BIOS.
    It is quite quiet due to use large-scale copper cooler and control default
    rotates speed around 2500 RPM .
    Nvidia chipset is well know with high temperature but the actual temperature
    still can be control under 55 degrees
    DFI implement smart fan control , the fan speed can be adjust between 0 to
    6500 RPM






    Prove to be DFI LANParty series overclocking blood lineage , It 's different
    grade with other AM2 mobo that are used before .
    Except DDRII voltage up to 3V can use, The DRAM overclocking can be
    easy be achieve with more tight timing and more lower voltage.

    To be continue ... 3D performance and EPP technology
