Tuesday, April 19, We have been following the developments of the nVidia nForce chipset ever since our first nForce2 review back in The new retention mechanism has been well thought out and designed. Two PCI Express x1 ports. For instance, even when users use a heatsink that requires a lot of force, the motherboard does not warp.

It means vnf4/vnf44 bios is v5. A dedicated secure networking engine enhances networking security while reducing CPU overhead Specialized features defend against spyware intrusions and hacker attacks An intelligent application manager alerts you when unknown applications attempt to access the network Supports the new Microsoft networking architecture for fast and secure networking.
Since most of the processor and memory performance has already been exploited the only thing vnf4/vfn4 to improve is the included features, enter the nForce4, feature rich and hot as hell. I would have liked it if Chaintech included a few USB brackets. Fan speed monitoring and control for CPU and system. A dedicated secure networking engine enhances networking security while reducing CPU overhead.
The MCP chip has also moved and is now closer to the processor. Make sure to have a motherboard from the latest production batch.
It seems I was right in my post above, it should boot and work with a dual core regardless of the bios as long as the bios can support Rev E venice single core cpusbut on only one core which will let the pc work so you can flash the bios to v5.

For he is good. According to HERE bios version 4. The nForce3 was a rough time for nVidia their single chip solution had a rocky start but only from a specification standpoint, when you look at the benchmark numbers the performance was still easily on par with the VIA solution.
Finally thermal management within the processor has gotten much better. Click image to enlarge. Memory slots are located at the top with the processor directly below.
Chaintech VNF4 Ultra Zenith VE Review
The board is dhaintech on the nVidia nForce4 Ultra chipset and as the name suggests is value oriented. Then vnf4ultra came along and said “let there be clarity” And it became so. The nF4 floppy connector is at the lower right of the board – not the best location, but much better than at the bottom of the board.
That doesn’t mean vfn4/vnf4 we have to like it though. Don’t confuse Value with cheap, the board comes with a fair amount of onboard features but lacks many of the extra stuff we have come to expect.
CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Manuals
If you are with the dual core CPU then great!!! The trouble is, most manufacturers seem to be fixated with high end solutions that have everything plus the kitchen sink built-in or included in the package.
Ulgra name or email address: I am not really a pro on this type of thing so don’t take my word here. Most nForce4 based motherboards support such CPUs but not all of them do so out-of-the-box.
