We have so many DFI threads and owners here so BIOS should be an issue. Hope this helps.
Do the extra tweaks help performance or just complicate things when trying to lock in your 24/7 OC?

Most boards are able to do moderate OC. In DFI case, you will see several options under one category which is usually a single option for others board. Nothing wrong to have many options but need to time to tweak and balance them. Again, it isn’t hard but just need time to go through them. I used to own and use DFI to build rigs for others. They work great but they will call you up once they messed it up.

Ok, so both boards are amazingly stable even at very high FSB frequency. Abit is more user friendly and the DFI is more tweak friendly. With patience they should both yeild similar results. Sound correct Lin?

All things equal, the Abit wins because of uGuru. Once you try uGuru, you won't be able to live without it. Completely stable OC utility that I have been waiting for. Going to the bios to modify your OC setting every time is so time consuming. What takes 3 min usually can be done in 6 secs.

I tried 3 Abit Pro and 5 DFI boards. You are correct. They have no problem to do 480+ but 2 of DFI were able to 530+. For some low multi cpus, they need this extra fsb.
