DFI LANPARTY NFII ULTRA PCB B DRIVER
DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B Motherboard Review -
The guide is very brief and sufficient. As a humourous side-note, the Quick Installation Guide states "Do not force the CPU into the socket" and ironically the next picture shows an anonymous hand cramming an Intel Pentium 4 into the AMD socket as part of the normal installation procedure.
Forcing the wrong CPU into the wrong socket type after warning users not to bend the pins increases occurance of irony. SmartDoctor is a hardware monitoring tool that displays system temperatures and fan RPMs and you can set alarms to notify you when things are out of spec. There are some nice features about this board.
There is a 12v power header to help provide a more stable voltage to the CPU and helps with overclocking. Four heatsink mounting holes are included for those of you using the appropriate heatsink or waterblock. This sort of mounting is preferable to using the clip in the situation of a LAN party since mounting using the 4 holes is more secure and not prone to slipping or Dfi LANPARTY NFII ULTRA pcb B during transportation. This allows you to host a videocard with a larger cooler without losing any PCI functionality. This is a nice Dfi LANPARTY NFII ULTRA pcb B decision for a gamer since many of you would like to keep the hot card away from your other peripherals, or add on some extra cooling if it doesn't come with it already.
A CMOS reset switch would have been nicer though.
Despite these nice features, the board has a few design concerns which you should be aware of. First and foremost are the proximity of the capacitors to the CPU socket. Larger heatsinks may have a problem clearing them which either means you need Dfi LANPARTY NFII ULTRA pcb B buy another cooler or modify your old heatsink to fit. My Thermalright AX-7 barely fits and is really hard to install properly because there's no wiggle room at all.
NForce 2 Socket A Motherboard Round-up
This Thermalright AX-7 is much too close to those capacitors. Zif socket gap may cause cooling problems. The socket is also too close to the top-edge of the motherboard which can be a problem for those of you Dfi LANPARTY NFII ULTRA pcb B smaller cases and CPU fans greater than 80mm. When a 92mm fan is installed, it may not fit because of the ATX power supply. With a 80mm fan, it sits just flush to the edge of the motherboard which may mean a snug fit for some of you. Like the Infinity, the Zif socket is also crooked and not flush to the PCB which may cause some cooling problems. I personally had no problems, but it may be a concern for some of you.
The 12v and ATX power headers are poorly laid out. For the 12v, there is a capacitor next to it which makes removing the cable difficult. Also, it is very close to the AGP slot which can cause problems if your video cooler is large. This is particularly troublesome when removing the ATX power cable - you first have to remove the CPU fan wires and also make sure that you don't bend a capacitor in the process. The CMOS jumper is in an unfortunate position.
It's inline with a PCI slot which means it can be blocked off if you use that slot. For a motherboard marketed towards enthusiasts, some forethought would have been nice in this department as tweakers are often resetting their CMOS.
So if you plan to do some tweaking, keep PCI-1 slot clear of long cards. It's obvious that DFI needs some work in making this board a little bit easier to work with.

The above Dfi LANPARTY NFII ULTRA pcb B aren't so bad if it were a traditional consumer model, but since it's targeted at gamers and enthusiasts, fixing these concerns would make the board even better. Here we can see that there is a full-set of features. Abstract: Now that it's our time to test the DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B, I can the board also has mini power and reset buttons right on the PCB. Abstract: Now that it's our time to test the DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B, I can the green sockets are all UV sensitive, and the black PCB just looks.
