  • DFI Infinity 975x New Record

    Recently, the most popular thing in PC market must be Intel Core 2 Duo CPU.
    Therefore, the relative motherboards, which support Core 2 Duo series, also
    took advantage in this period. On the otherhand, 965 can be easily let FSB
    up to 450~500 MHz, then its price (mobo) is only around $130~ 250. If
    compare with 965, 975 is lot more expensive than 965.

    I also realized something about mobo in OC field:
    ASUS is the best mobo manufacturer in Intel platform
    Then, DFI is the best in AMD platform.

    DFI has launched INFINITY 975X since July. A reasonable price $200
    With a bunch of features, such likes: 6 phase digital PWM, ceramic heat sink,
    X16 PCIe for Crossfire, e SATA interface and 400~ 450Mhz FSB OC
    It breaks the market positioning of others 975X, also affects the pricing to
    some of the 965 mobos.

    At that time, I have brought out 2 defect about this board:
    1.The compatibility of DDRII still needs to be improved.
    2.The boot up screen and OS monitoring software also need to be strengthen.

    System info
    CPU:INTEL Core 2 Extreme X6800
    DRAM: Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C3
    HD: Seagate 7200.7 80GB
    POWER: Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler: Sonic Tower

    when I use the previous version BIOS, FSB around 300~400Mhz, What I can
    choose is CPU:DRAM 1:1.33 or 1:1. then, the DDRII only can run 800~950
    Mhz approximately.
    The 9/13 BIOS version, some guys in the forum said that was rearranged by
    Oskar Wu.
    CPU 374Mhz, Ratio of BIOS~ 1:2>>1:2=>DDRII 1122 CL4 4-4-9 run steady

    CPU 389Mhz, Ratio of BIOS~ 1:2=>DDRII 1170 CL4 4-4-9 successfully

    The latest version of the BIOS makes the DRAM OC ability increase a lot.
    Speak frankly, this model has already far beyond the mid-range image.
    The result of DDRII clock can reach above 1100, its already a highest model
    in Intel platform. in price and OC ability, DFI INFINITY 975X is such a great board, no matter compares to same level platform like 975 or 965.
    Id like to expect the LANParty version of 975X has a better and powerful
    performance then.

      That is one ugly and poorly laid out motherboard. Atleast it can overclock very well to make up for that. Nice one!
