Which DFI to get for phenom build?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
First what is the difference between the UT, LT, and DK series?

You can see my plan for the build here http://www.overclock.net/amd-build-l...rst-build.html

But i decided on the LANPARTY DK 790FX-M2RS

But i just found this on DFI's site. LANPARTY UT 790FX-M2R



Is the only difference the heatsinks on the chipsets? Where i can i get this one at?

The UT is the higher end version of the DK.

The differences are minor, but make a whole lot of difference.

The M2R has a much better cooling solution implemented. The NB on these things like to get toasty (my M2RS hits 72c on the chipset sometimes ), so it is nice to have.

The M2R also has a much better implemented PWM system, so it can handle higher wattage processors a lot better.

Besides that, your looking at a much more flexible BIOS, with a few extra tuning options that really help with phenom OC'ing, including Decimal multipliers (so, like, a 13.7x multi, if thats your thing ).

Exactly, the DK only has 4 phase pwm, which is, well normal for "standard boards". If you want to use a 9950 which needs 140W you should get the UT, But it will probably also work with the DK, but oc'ing will not be as good as on the UT. By the way, DFI is still testing compatibility with this cpu and the DK.
