According to the test results, Giga Byte GA-K8NS Ultra-939 takes the second place among the Socket 939 motherboards we reviewed. This results in a slight lagging behind typical dual-channel AMD K8 boards capable of working with 1T DRAM Timing. Conclusion: GA-K8NS Ultra-939 is a worthy representative of the motherboard family from Giga Byte, intended to support the latest AMD Athlon 64 processors.
This board seems to set the performance-important DRAM Timing to 2T.
Do you feel that your site slowlyness is killing sales or traffic?
(this was annoying) But considering that the bios for the XP that includes the D stepping(90nm) update is from September and the shipping bios on this new board is from October, I'm going to assume it will support 90nm out of the box. I guess I am so used to the DFI UT LP, that anything less seems lackluster. i wanted to wait on the DFI but only god knows when that will get released?
Also they said the main difference is the lack of the mosfet fan. The bios allows only 1.7vcore max, and .1 or .2v over the stock vdimm. Not impressed i MO, but at only $116 at newegg, It doesn't seem like a bad deal. 2 from the nf3-250, and 2 from the silicon image controller. This looks like a great board for 939ers on a budget. I was going to buy the MSI K8N Neo2 but no one has it in stock and for 140 bucks plus shipping im not even going to bother...
Please always verify part numbers before committing to buying the CPU. BTW, I like the way the Asus A8V-X page is laid I still haven't tried the ADA3400AIK4BO in the As Rock K8-Upgrade board - since the I/O shield does NOT fit!
The ADA4200DAA5CD page,"AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200 ADA4200DAA5CD (ADA4200CDBOX)"page says my 4200 has a "Toledo" coreand AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU chartsays some 4200es are "Manchester" and some are "Toledo". Lastly, a very big /THANK YOU/ for your hard work in keeping this site up-to-date!
The below BIOSes are patched / modded to fix the 32GB or 64GB bug that is present in older Award BIOS Based BIOSes.
