DFI's Feature Packed BIOS

No other manufacturer can match the amount of options available to users in a DFI LANParty BIOS. From loads of memory tweaks to overclocking and voltage options, DFI rules the enthusiast market.

As you can see here there are a load of memory timing adjustments. Tweakers will spend weeks finding out exactly what the individual settings do. If you are not familiar with the options, tweak one option at a time otherwise you'll quickly get lost!

The DFI LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G allows motherboard clock frequency adjustments between 200-500 MHz, in 2 MHz increments. You can also adjust the CPU to Northbridge HyperTransport speed, and width, as well as the Northbridge/Southbridge HyperTransport connection. Remember nVIDIA's LinkBoost? Who needs that when you can adjust the HyperTransport and PCI Express buses independently? At the moment, overclocking either setting does not seem to benefit performance, but that may change with the next generation of videocards.

You can increase the processor voltage up to 1.94V, Northbridge voltage to 1.5V, Southbridge voltage to 1.8V, HyperTransport voltage to 1.5V and memory voltage to 3.0V. Keep in mind that the DFI LANPartyUT NF590 SLI-M2R/G allows for voltages high enough to quickly damage hardware!

If you are not familiar with what you're doing, definitely seek advice first! With water or phase change cooling, this is the perfect opportunity to turn up the voltage to the processor for that overclocking record attempt! Next we dive right into the benchmarks.
