The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’.

There’s not really anything positive we can say about this situation other than the fact that boards based on these chipsets are usually best run in a conservative rather than aggressive manner. NVIDIA also recognized the need for a more capable power subsystem cooling solution due to the tremendous current draw of 45nm CPUs experienced during aggressive overclocking. This is a tested motherboard item in good condition.

Ratings and Reviews Write a review. This helps overclocking as some cheaper PSUs have higher allowable tolerances when it comes to input current ripple.

Because egva this, the proper design and implementation of a well-developed 5-phase solution can often outperform a lesser 8-phase solution. Show More Show Less.

There’s plenty of speed-controlled fan headers, unlike cheaper mobos where most of the fan headers are power-only, so you can make your machine as quiet as need be.

The heatpipe has been extended to encompass both sets of MOSFET banks, including an extra segment of fins used to close the circle and provide additional surface area for maximum heat evgq. Tighter tolerances means that the circuit is less susceptible to variations in component temperatures.

If fact, we submit to you that it’s much easier and cheaper to slap a few more power delivery phases on a motherboard than it is to create an actual high-performance solution. Everything is just nicer with a top-notch board like this or those from other brandsand it’s a pleasure to use and own.

Less peak-to-peak ripple means “cleaner” power and more stable overclocks. Additional Product Features Networking Type.

eVGA nForce i SLI FTW Specs – CNET

As a first task, this is no small undertaking for anyone regardless of prior credentials. Specifically, there’s the notorious potential for SATA OS drive corruption when thei chipset is pushed to its limits.

Otherwise, an unpaid item case will automatically be opened. The heatsink assembly is made entirely of aluminum, except 79i0 the steel casing used to hold it together, and the included fan can be used to provide active cooling when pushing the board to its absolute limits.

The fan speed can also be manually adjusted in the BIOS if you find the whine at full-speed to be a little over the top. This won’t be a hugely in depth review, as a very comprehensive i chipset overclocking guide has already been provided within our ASUS Striker II Extreme review.

Overclocking places tremendous demands on the power delivery system and without this strong foundation, even your best efforts are sure to fail particularly in the case of long-term overclocking.

GeForce 3-D Vision Ready technology creates an immersive stereoscopic 3-D experience not limited to games. Best Selling in Motherboards See all. EVGA designs motherboards and produces NVIDIA graphics processing units, and they loaded the nForce Ultra i motherboard with its eponymous chipset that supports front-side bus speeds of up toMHz base speed and high-performance features, such as scalable link interface and enthusiast system architecture, to give you ultimate component control and expansion options.


Microprocessor load current profiles have changed to the point that the use of single-phase regulators is no longer a viable option.

Save on Motherboards Trending price is based on prices over last 90 evg. This is a monster even for being as old as it is. The extra money spent on this motherboard is well worth it. Graphics processing power increases exponentially with each GPU board, and the nForce i motherboard needs a processor with the power to make the most of its graphics capabilities.

It’s the foundation of your system. Company of Heroes Conclusions and Final Comments.

I could have pushed the RAM even further, and I would have if the computer was mine, but it’s for a friend, and the performance benefit would not have been worth it. Crysis Real-World Gaming Results:
