    I recently puchased a LanParty NFII Ultra, which at the moment is DOA, and I'm trying to get an RMA as directed to solve this problem, however, if this can't be solved (I'm losng faith in DFI), what's a good mobo (want an nForce 2) for an AMD 3000+ barton 400 mhz FSB. I saw a review on some and noticed a lot of them don't support 400 mhz FSB... Anyway, hopefully this problem will get solved and I won't have to worry about it, but always good to have a backup plan....

    I use the Soltek SL-75MRN-L and run 200MHz FSB at all times. It will go higher, but I'm happy for the time being with the speeds it attains... at least for now. :D

    Abit's NF7-S, ASUS's A7N8X Deluxe Ver 2.0/A7N8X-X/A7N8X-E Deluxe, EPoX's 8RDA3+/8RDAE/8RDAEN and Gigabyte's GA-7NNXP/GA-7N400 Pro2/GA-7N400-L are some that officially support 200MHz FSB (400MHz DDR) plus there are many more from other manufacturers but my 8RDA+'s don't seem to have any probs runnin' at that 24/7 under full load either.

    Wiggo, I hate to hijak this thread, but I got a quick question for the walking commericial of the Epox 8rda3+ :flames:

    THat board DOES NOT support RAID, right? I just discovered this right before I started to order the new system, and I think Im going to have to go Asus/Gigabyte, cuz Im all about RAID, cuz I like to throw my money away on things I will never use to its full potential :)

    The current hype for NF2 is over the DFI board...which many users are reporting 250-265fsb from.

    But the Abit NF7-S will usually do 220-230 out of the box if you don't have memory that will run that high.
