The DFI RDX200 CF-DR Motherboard Review

The DFI RDX200 BIOS Continued

DRAM Configuration Screen

Look familiar? Those of you that loved, or hated, the DRAM configuration screen found on DFI’s NF4 boards are all too familiar with this site. While there are limitless combinations to be found, the DFI support forums and more specifically their memory settings database are a great resource for anyone who wants to get the most out of their board.

Dual Slot option

The DUAL SLOT CONFIGURATION screen enables or disables dual card ability (Note that you still must enable Crossfire from within ATI’s Control Center in Windows)

GFX Link

The GFX0 and GFX1 Link Width Settings represent the PCI-E bus width for the graphics cards. I tried benchmarking with a variety of settings and found very little to no difference between x16 and x8 with two cards inserted in the board.

Those of you who love to explore and torture yourselves with BIOS tinkering will love the RDX200 BIOS, which is easily the most extensive I have ever seen. Don’t forget to use the DFI “CMOS Reloaded” feature before tweaking your board as keeping a few safe BIOS configurations can prevent a lot of wasted time as you go. Also remember to keep in mind DFI Street, DFI’s support forum which is chalk full of wise people who obviously spend 24/7 in front of their DFI based systems.
