Choosing the right mobo ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Have looked up some info and also see that the DFI UT boards aren't even available in The Netherlands.

I'm still deciding which one i should get:

DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR - http://www.azerty.nl/producten/produ...-939-amd-.html
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe - http://www.azerty.nl/producten/produ...li-deluxe.html

I've seen on the Tweakers.net that the DFI got some stability problems after long time heavy endurence but is seen as a 1 to get !. the Asus has a better review then the DFI when it comes to performance and speed (dunno the OC abilities of both) but it's said to have good oc speeds. Another thing i like is that the Asus got pasive cooling and the cables you get with the Asus are much more then the DFI (correct me if i'm wrong).

Still everybody says go for DFI... but you say that on the OC abilities or the overal of the board qualities ? Cause i hear nobody say that Asus is worse then DFI and i think almost every Asus board owner is a happy with it (correct me if i'm wrong here )

Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe - http://usa.asus.com/products4.aspx?l...44&modelmenu=1
DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR - http://eu.dfi.com.tw/Product/xx_prod...YPE=LP&SITE=UK

oh btw i don't need the best board of 2, i just wanna know what you guys think about these 2 and why you would chose DFI or Asus.... Oh experiences are welcome !

I would choose DFI because they're more stable, more reliable, and better looking then Asus. The guys at tweakers.net don't know what they're talking about.

HOLD YOUR HORSES !

tweakers.net is just as reliable as this forum and any other source of testing. The don't talk bull**** or otherwise the weren't be as many people on that site.... and taking their advice. anyway.............. the 2 mobo's we're tested by AnandTech testteam (Asus board), HardOCP (dfi board).

Is there any test between these boards... or graficks of tests of these boards ?? so i can compare them...

Definatly go with the DFI. It simply is the best for overclocking...even if the board layouts seem kinda goofy to me.

The OC of the DFI... is that in OCing the board or OCing the cpu ? and this DFI is already an older version (we still don't have any UT boards in NL) and the Asus has also some new OC capabilities... hmm i'm still struggling cause the DFI is so ugly and has active cooling
