Core Voltage: Auto, .44375V to 1.60000V in 0.00625V increments

Not so good.

DRAM Voltage: Auto, 1.50V ~ 3.01V in various Increments

Very good.

If you have ever used a DFI board you would know that there are two voltage options. There is another option to increase the cpu voltage by adding a % to the .443V-1.6V range. The board can actually max out at over 1.9V for cpu.

I plan on buying this board because of all the overclocking options DFI is known for, plus I could use my video card for physics if I decide to upgrade

AMD DFI boards yes but for Intel, there's nothing an ASUS can't do that others can and when it comes to Intel, ASUS is the one route to go.

Why wasn't it a DFI P965? why wasn't it a DFI LP 975X? Why DFI pulled the plug on the nForce 590? Why DFI still has poor support for "their" Intel motherboards (past and present)?

Sorry, but for those who think that AMD DFI board are going to be the same as for Intel? Let me be the first one to say it to you: "You're wrong"

ASUS or GIGABYTE for Intel.

Ok, so what title would you like? I can change it to something more tasteful like:
"Korndog2003's approved title" or something like that. Dunno, has a good ring to it

Good if you want to test your smoke alarm I guess

It could be more informative of the topic.....like naming the model and brand of the board.

Tell me a few things before I even attempt to take your post with more than a grain of salt.

Have you ever owned a DFI board? If so, what did you think of it and why? How is the support story different for Asus or Gigabyte?

I also have to wonder how ANY of your questions are relevant to whether or not a DFI will be the board to have. You can call me a DFI apologist if you want but, seriously, everyone who has a dislike for the DFI boards usually had a bad experience from lack of the ability to adapt to the board's quirks OR is a simple <insert brand here> fanboy.

Honestly, the DFI infinity which, by DFIs standard is NOT a stellar overclocker, holds its own against so called enthusiast boards of the same generation (I.E. Asus and Gigabyte) with a simple BIOS update.

Why wasn't it an LP? Simple answer there, unlike Asus, DFI won't ruin their LP image with a mediocre board. And from the looks of things, when R600 hits marketplaces it will be the ONLY board to have if you don't want to run hacked drivers.

Now... as it stands it's somewhat disappointing that the R600 isn't a major leap forward but not entirely expected. It remains to be seen if the rd600 will be another 975X/G that suddenly unlocks another 50-70+ FSB with a BIOS update.

You can take my post any way you want it.

I didn't start building computers yesterday. When I say something or comment on something is because I know what I am saying. Whether or not you think just because "I know" other brands are better than others is called "fanboyism", Well? could careless. It's a fact that people can see ASUS and GIGABYTE board are better for Intel right now. GIGABYTE will release the DS3P and ASUS is coming out with The Commando, no need for LPRD.

There are no LP boards because maybe you don't know this, but the LP 875P-T was way more expensive than a P4C800-E DLX, and the LP 915P-T12 was also more expensive than the P5GD2 Premium, yet in both occasions the ASUS were the best in performance and overclocking.

And I just don't see how come you're calling a chipset that is already "obsolete", a "leap forward"? To what? That is a first and last?

BTW, I used two DFI boards in the past and in both cases I had to switched them for GIGABYTE, GIGABYTE had better support (even better then ASUS at the time and ABIT), so I don't think I'd ever use another DFI nor will recommend one.

How did I guess?
