Anyone Buying DFI LT X48 T2R?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I pre-ordered this and I was wondering if anyone else did as well here at OCN. I've never owned a DFI board before I'm pretty excited about it - and the DDR2 support since I don't want to ditch my Ballistix.

I understand that OC'ing on this board is much more involved of a processed than my current P5K-E. Anyone care to opine on what I can expect from this board? I know that DFI has built quite a good reputation among enthusiasts and I wanted to jump the Asus bandwagon and join the DFI fans.

I'm currently on the road and won't be able to check this thread regularly but I will drop by later to see what kind of feedback I've received concerning this board.

side note: Shipping for this board has been delayed again till tomorrow. Jeez I hate waiting for stuff...

DFI's have a TON of memory options, which means there are lots of different ways to tweak things to get better stability. However, that also makes it a daunting task for the novice, or even fairly experienced, OCer.

I would recommend that you look around the internet, as people put out FAQs based on DFI's different BIOSes and options that you can set. I'm not positive if the X38 / X48 will run on the same BIOS as the P35, but if you check the "X38 Information Thread" or "P35 Information Thread", that can give you a basic idea of what is safe to mess with, and what you should leave alone.

When I first got my Ultra-D, my RAM wasn't compatible with it, but after about an hour of tweaking, I got it to boot, and it OCed great. Lucky for me, this DFI was compatible with my RAM right out of the box, and I was able to OC great with minimal hassle. Now my RAM is kind of pooping out, so I ordered some Ballistix Tracers, which should be here this week, and then I will REALLY be able to finally unleash this beast, and see what it can really do.

DFI is definitely one of the best, if not easiest to use, motherboards on the market. Their Dark series has opened up a whole new avenue for the "Budget Enthusiast", and their top of the line boards (such as yours) really are top tier products. You will not be disappointed. Just give it a while so you get the hang of its quirks, and it will reward you in ways ASUS boards can only hope to
