Yes it was shipped direct from DFI Taiwan to me. Read it a few times and you'll slowly understand what i'm on about

Been reading about the DFI CFX3200 that uses the ATI RD580 northbridge and ULi M1575 southbridge @ ANAND and they complain the bios has too many features/adjustments/too complicated

Maybe they should have consulted you first eva

Yeah it can be daunting at first but with above useful info at hand you're half way there

Changed from Corsair Hydrocool 200 external 1/4" OD H20 cpu cooling to a DIY H20 setup consisting of

1. Silverprop Cyclone SE s939 waterblock
2. Swiftech MCP655 pump
3. Radiical Triple fan Ultra single pass radiator + 3x 120x25mm Xinruilian RDL1225S 71.75cfm fans
4. Pump and rad fans connected @12.4v using Kayl custom 100W adjustable voltage psu
5. 1/2" ID Clearflex tubing

Resulted in a drop in delta (load - idle) from 13-20C to 7-10C

Room temp is nice and cool at 25C

Also decided to spice up SmartGuardian interface somewhat and came up with this custom Smart.ini - click on image for larger full screenie.



I uploaded the Smart.ini i used here

Yup very nice but need to up vcore when using higher vdimm to prevent mem controller on cpu from being damaged

I really miss the fun of using BH-5, not to mention the massive performance boost

I promised myself not to buy any more DDR1 ram as I already have 4GB (yes I know its not what it used to be ) but the temptation is always there

I........MUST............RESIST
