The DFI RD482

On paper, the overclocking capability of the RD482 should be more or less the same as the DFI's nForce4-based boards. The reasons we say this is because the overclocking capability of the K8 platform is pretty much dependent on the processor, instead of the motherboard itself.

Because of this, Jarry designed the RD482 motherboard as two separated parts - the CPU section and the system features section (chipset implementation).

Separation of system in the RD482

This design philosophy allowed DFI to use an almost identical design for the CPU section of the RD482 as that of the DFI nForce4 board. Because of this, the overclockability of the RD482 should be the same as the nForce4 board, which is excellent at overclocking.

Separation of system in the NF4 board

The final adjustable voltages have yet to be determined. But we can expect no less than a voltage of 3.2V for the memory modules. The motherboard also uses a 6-layer PCB to obtain cleaner signals.
