[madshrimps] DFI Lanparty LT X38-T2R Review

post #1 of 7

Before we can draw our final conclusions, we will have a look at the cost of both motherboards. We consulted www.geizhals.eu for the EU prices and Froogle.com for the US:

€175/$230 - DFI Lanparty UT P35-T2R
€200/$240 - DFI Lanparty LT X38-T2R




DFI Lanparty LT X38-T2R

The updated X38 motherboard is slightly slower due to the untweaked memory configuration; If all settings, even the sub timings, would be exactly the same, I'm convinced that the X38 would be as fast as the P35. The €25 price difference is what you pay for full speed CrossFire compatibility, not an insane amount of money. The DFI X38 is definitely recommendable for people who want to get the most out of their system and are prepared to spend time tweaking the memory configuration; however, if you don't intend to use multiple ATI video cards, you might as well go for the P35.


In this review I compared the DFI lanparty X38 in features and capabilities to their P35 motherboard, mostly because both are aiming at almost the same target audience: the hardware enthusiasts.

If however you are not into high end overclocking, you’ll be happy to know that these Lanparty motherboards come packed with all the extra features found on most none-extreme OC boards. If you’re looking for an excellent foundation to build your system on, DFI Lanparty LT X38-T2R is far from a bad choice.

In the end though the difference we’ve seen here between the motherboards, can only be detected in benchmarks, during daily usage (gaming/surfing/office) you won’t notice a thing. So choose the product which best fits your required feature set, and know that performance wise S775 boards are all pretty much on par performance wise at standard/default speeds and settings.

Stupidly slow link.

EDIT: *** are you talking about? It looks great. (or at least as good as any other board)

And the author really played down the board. I see it did a lot of 'winner' 'near the winner' in pretty much all of the tests. Granted they're barely separated but that's what's expected with identical clocks. What got me, was by how much superpi ass kicking it did. That's a huge separation considering their all at the same exact clocks.

This is the news section. I normally review it first before post it but not to add any comments. Whether the product is good or bad, members can review and put in their comments based on the contents.

Newegg had this in stock twice. Now it is all but deactivated.

Motherboardpro has them though it seems.

EDIT: It seems there are two flavors to this board. The discussion was on xtremesystems.org but I can't find the link atm. It's a crapshoot but if you get a board Made In China, the quality apparently won't be as high as the ones made in Taiwan. Meh, just thought I'd throw it out there.

The LT has rather standard SB cooling and a Thermalright like heatsink for the NB, while the UT has a heatpipe config. I think.
