  1. I think I'll leave it at stock. It's a quite good overclocker that can run 32M at tight timings with the TicTacXT Bios. And yes, the layout could be better, ran into the same struggle with the P4 12V connector and my trusty Alpha Pal 8045 won't fit unless I would grind the mounting screws because some smd caps are in the way. The onboard Gbit failed again and the SATA Chip also won't show up during the boot process. I guess a professional reflow is necessary.Anyways , it's to rare to me play around with it anymore and now I've boxed it and stored it on a shelf. Still got my NF7 and maybe I'll get myself a Asus A7N8X someday for modding.
  2. Congratulations. Now hopefully all the brainpower and hard work pays off
  3. No problem. As long as I stay away from 3.3V it should be ok for now. thnx. Put it in the oven for 30min @ 230°F . Booted up right away and the GBit NIC is even showing up. Let's see how long it will last. And I got the bridging cap too. So it should be safer for high vdimm?
  4. I'll throw it into the oven tomorrow and see if it does the trick. What kind of SMD do I have to solder in to prevent the mosfet from blowing up?
  5. OMG. I just cleaned it and in doing so I must have flexed the pcb a bit. The Board does work again. This isn't good after all because now I know the pcb has issues... Dumpster find does dumpster things
  6. at least i'm not alone... this is sooo sad. New bios didn't do the trick. Can't tell if the smd's are ok.They don't "duct" through if this is the right term.The lowest one looks pretty burnt. Can't tell anymore if it has the bridge. Glued the heatsink on it to prevent burning/heating. It's a china version for sure.
  7. Yes, i do. Since Tzk started to fiddle around with the crazy bios hacking i even own an extraction tool. As I wrote, the board was just fine until i did a reboot. It even ran Prime and 32M @ 250-MHz+ outside pic was taken before memtest. you can barely see the damage. I didn't see it back then...
  8. Thats sad. The upper pic i made is showing the board after i cleaned it a bit.I was hoping that the black mass was just some molten plastic casing from the lower chip or something like that since I don't have any reference Pic.Anyway, Thank you. E: what's that green stuff underneath the lever? the beginning of what happened to mine? you have to zoom a little.
  9. Hey Guys, unfortunately my DFI died some days ago. I didn't realize (had to look at some pics I took a few days back) but some SMD components underneath the socket lever where already fried before the board ultimately refused to reboot from a warmstart. Any chance fixing it? The Board still fires up but is showing only the 4 LED's of death and no beeping. I removed the molten plastic and I can't see any cut/burnt traces but also I don't know the values of the burnt parts. Thought it could be worth a try asking here for help. Any advise is welcome
  10. Thanks for your explanation . I guess this is why DFI decided to put a heatspreader on the SB. It is getting pretty warm compared to the naked Abit.
  11. So does your NF7 react to more NB-V? Mine doesn't. Max is at 245MHz 32M@1.7VNB and this is it.I did the dirty Mod for the Ram and Vmod for the NB. DFI and Asus seem to love more voltage. EBED Bios and an once in a while shot, without valid
  12. thnx again for the mod-bios. Going to test it later on.
  13. Don't know if there is any difference apart from the filename. No changelog has ever been posted. I'm just curious since it has the magical letters EBED in the filename. So I wouldn't mind giving it a try and see for myself. But first I need to get hold of that particular version. This is where I got the info from that it might exists: https://forums.overclockersclub.com/topic/84291-dfi-lanparty-ultra-b-bios-romsip-mod-by-merlin/?page=2
  14. Thank you, Sir Too bad, this is the EB only version. I'm looking for the EB ED file.
