Absolutely! BTW some of the engineers or designers that use to work for ABIT moved to DFI so you can expect high quality mobo.

The DFI box is like 3 times the size of most mobo boxes and is full of goodies! Just curious, what is the price difference that you are looking at? Here in Ontario Canada both boards are roughly the same price give or take a few dollars.

Here's the IC7-Max3 at Newegg. Unfortunately the DFI board they carry is only the Pro875.

Whatever you do, do not get that board. It's not a very good o/c'er. It's very limited on vdimm and vcore range. Get the Pro875B. If you can, get rev. B1 <<< latest version. The pic is a few posts up. Notice the heatsinks on the MOFSET. Biggest thing to look for.

Actually some places sell the Pro875B cheaper than IC7-Max3!

The IC7 Max 3 doesn't have any serial ports or a parallel port. Keep that in mind if you get this and have any peripherals that require these connections. I know my old printer uses a parallel port.
