DFI SLI-DR Expert?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok I've looked at a couple different pictures of this board and I have wondered, what is the difference between the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert & the DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR?

Also is it worth the extra $30 for the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR Expert over the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 SLI-DR?

many things... if you looked the obvious is that the ram is in a different place so it can cool better, overall better overclocking, more voltage, can run 1T with 4 sticks of ram... more space for sli so you can hook up graphics card coolers easier.. its probably one of the best if not THE best motherboard on the market right now. I think i'm getting it for christmas

On top of all that, there are no jumpers to switch around. It's all done with software. It's also easier to set voltages. Instead of having a table with a lot of voltages, you type what voltage in yourself, so for example, you dont have to worry about not maxing out your RAM at 3.6 volts and then becoming unstable at 3.7 volts.

Ah, thank you for making this thread, I was actually wondering the same thing.

I was about to buy the SLI-DR until someone told me I should get the SLI-DR Expert, I figured what the hell, it's only $3 more and it must be better, it says expert in it...

lol, but this answered my question. And now I'm sure that's what I'lll get (if I actually do build a new comp...)

Yep, I too am getting a Expert soon. I am tired of waiting for CrossFire, only to see the DFI iteration suck and have to wait more for the ASUS board which will be out dated by the RD580 NB chip in about a month, SLI is tried and true and has been here for over a year!

Oh yeah, and saying you have a DFI LanParty UT nForce 4 SLI-DR Expert to people who know nothing about computers sounds much cooler than anything else I have heard lol!
