im planning to take my overclocking to the next level by upgrading to a DFI motherboard. what i'm wondering is that which is the best choice for my setup? i'll be planning to get a new soundcard and look forward to an sli setup in the future so i need room for pci/e slots and what not. i was leaning towards the lanparty ut sli-dr

People often take DFI mostly because of the extensive voltage support on the RAM, but if you buy this, get prepared for a confusing BIOS

Also if you don't need SLI I'd highly recommend you get the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D, it's a great motherboard with astounding overclocking options. If I ever built a socket 939 rig that would definitely be the number one motherboard choice for me.

I have just recently got a system together (RAM off for RMA) based upon the DFI Lanparty UT nf4SLI-D and having never used a DFI motherboard the issue of complex BIOS is really a non-event.
Once you get your head around the BIOS nomenclature and selection of the correct BIOS for your setup, you pretty much are there.
The BIOS tunning options are extensive but that is why you go for a DFI.
As for the DR and the Expert versions, I am lead to believe that they are not that much more proficient in the overclock department.
The exception are the 2 high end...and costly custom jobbies (the name of the 2 escape me ATM).

If someone suggest's " Don't get the DFI because it is to complex"..Ignore it unless you are totally inept.

Anyways that is my opinion on it.

I agree. If you are not going to run SLi then the Lanparty Ultra D is a fantastic board and there are many here to help you with the sometimes confusing BIOS.

Lol. Are you kidding?

The BIOS on my board is the only one I've seen that labels everything correctly, and doesn't hide any options behind secret doors.

The extra options are easy to tweak..it's called "auto", or leave them alone. It's only as complicated as you want it.
