Yo people

I found a competitor to the awsome ASUS P5K-E I was gonna get

The DFI DK P35...




Which would you choose for OC'in a DualCore?

It says it only supports DDR2 667/800 unlike the P5K-E's up to 1066MHz

But meh, only need the higher RAM Speed for stability with high FSB's, hopefully the DFI BIOS has RAM Ratios'...

Or i could buy 1066RAM and run it underclocked @DDR800 then overclock it...if you know what i mean


So yeah

Which would you choose

Both are pretty much the same price

Oh, and its the

DFI LanParty DKP35 T2RS just to verify, noticed there were 2 models

Supports 1333*/1066/800MHz system bus speed
Award BIOS
RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 0+1 and RAID 5
Supports DDR2 667/800 MHz DIMMs Intel® Core2 Quad, Intel® Core2 Extreme, Intel® Core2 Duo, Intel® Pentium D or Intel® Pentium 4

The Core2 Extreme are 45nm aint they? i'll look up if it supports the E8200/E8400

Both are good board but at similar price, I go for DFI board. Depending on your budget, I would go for E2180, E6750 or E8400 but you go for low multi cpu since this board has relatively higher FSB. It says 667/800 but buy a DDR2-800 and OC it or like you said, get 1066 ram, underclock and then OC.

nice board i'd go ASUS, DFI i dont know much about, my P5K board is designed for water cooling systems, damn does it do just as good in a air cooling setup

Hmm @ Lins, might be worth looking into the E8200 then - Multi of 8, would need a good 475 FSB to get it up to 3.8GHz [1900 External FSB though, seems a bit high]


E8400 @4GHz, 445 FSB - 1780 External
E8200 @3.8GHz - 475FSB - 1900 External

Both seem alrite, the E8400 might be a better choice

I also vote for the DK. It is a great mobo and has plenty of tweaking options. Don't worry about the RAM. If you buy decent 800's, you will have no problem running them 1:1 at 475. I would look into the E8200 or E8400. Either one is a good choice and that board has the ability to max out either one.

It is a charm they put in the pics for all their reviews. It is used instead of a watermark or similar to identify their pics. If you look at other reviews from them, the hardware pics have something similar. I thought it was kinda creative, lol.

Ah

I was hoping it was an awsome LED Debugger

RAM Problem - Both eyes light up
GPU Problem - Nose lights up
CPU Problem - Eyes and nose light up
Motherboard problem - Whole cat lights up

Go for the DFI. The board in my sig is my first DFI and I love it. Just a word of warning though, there are tons of tweak options in the BIOS. I'm not sure about the DK but I'm sure they're similar. Also, you might want to read up on GTL if you want to get your hands dirty OC'ing.
