Many boards have a clip that locks the rear of the graphics card into place, but the Infinity has a sort of “hook” design. Auto, 4x to 25x in. Customize The Tech Report Supports dual channel bit wide memory interface. While I had no problems installing the board, I feel that this will cause issues with some case configurations.

The fan itself is a magnetic levitation design and is quiet and effective, a nice carry-over from the original SLI-DR. Layout continued Page 4: Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. We’ve resized the images for comparison, with Jf4 on the left and Newegg on the right. They say it’s the little things that kill you, but in this case, the little things can save a motherboard from being bogged down in a quagmire of cookie-cutter mediocrity.
Those buttons can be handy for testing outside of a case. AC power failure recovery Hardware Monitor. Besides, we’re inclined to take DFI at their word.

My only other issue was with the size of the Infinity Ultra board, which comes in a full inch narrower than the standard ATX board. The voltage setting of the motherboard, for my Gigabyte, has to be on Auto for Crystal to be able to change it. That chipset also happens to be responsible for eyhernet of the board’s features.
Audio is provided by their Karajan 8 Channel audio card utilizing the AC97 codec, again the same setup as the previous generation. Often, the best way to differentiate a motherboard is with the little things.

The BIOS offers very good tweaking options, but voltages are slightly more limited than the higher-end boards. We’re using the “middle” model, the nForce4 Standard. Customize The Tech Report Voltage, rfi status, and temperature monitoring. We saw no ill effects on stability from using the 4-pin instead of an 8-pin connector.
Etherneg, 4x to 25x in. Unlike most other budget motherboards, DFI chose to use an active cooling solution with the Infinity nForce 4 boards. We’re a little uncomfortable pushing our CPUs even to that level, though with water cooling or something more exotic, a higher voltage level might prove useful. Other than a slight difference in contrast levels and viewing angle, we can’t spot any changes.
Socket based Athlon 64 processors. So, with the processor and chipset dictating much of a motherboard’s performance and feature set, manufacturers have been forced to innovate in new areas to make their boards stand out in a sea of similar competitors. Supports up to 4GB system memory.
Hard drives, floppy drives, optical drives, and even graphics cards have little to no impact on overclocking, so you can get whatever you want in those areas. Of course, if you’re adventurous, you can always just use a small metal item to short the required pins to accomplish the same result – don’t blame us if you fry your system nf44 way, though! AC power failure recovery.

Supports dual channel bit wide memory interface. True stereo line level outputs. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Many boards have a clip that locks the rear of the graphics card into place, dfl the Infinity has a sort of “hook” design. The small fan did make a bit of noise, though “silent” and “overclocking” rarely go together.
