3D Marking DFI’s Abandoned Baby: LP NF590 SLI

We all know that the evil DFI has aborted her baby, the DFI

We all know that the evil DFI has aborted her baby, the DFI
LAN Party NF590 SLI Intel Motherboard.

After nursing this bruised infant for a week now, and plastering
her up with a prosthetic BIOS, she
was up and benchmarking fiercely with the rage of an abandoned child:

In the warm afternoon, with the sun baking my small enclosed
room, I put down a pair of 7900GTX in SLI onto the motherboard and started clocking
away.

With the following set of components, I was pleased to find
my efforts rewarded… that unwanted as she is, the performance beast in her
is no illusion.

Intel Core 2 Duo X6800 @ 4650MHz
– 14 x 332MHz

DFI LAN Party NF590 SLI w Reference
BIOS Swapped in – BETA

GSkill 2 x 512MB F2-8000PHU1-
HZ @ DDR2 800MHz CL 3-3-3-5 2.3v

Inno3D 7900GTX SLI @ 1016MHz
Core 1068MHz Memory

SilverStone Zeus ST75ZF Power

Cooled by Home-Brew Triple

16,317 3D Mark 06 Score!!

I was glad to give this ill-fated board a second chance…
hopefully, when the sun sets and the room goes a little more chilly, we can
get her higher!
