DFI finally added an AM3 motherboard based on the AMD 790FX chipset to its lineup. The LANParty Dark 790FXB-M3H5 makes it to the tier of motherboards that are based on the AMD 790FX + SB750 chipset, and support DDR3 memory. Looks and feature-wise, this board is near-identical to the LP DK 790FXB-M2RSH, except for the fact that it features the AM3 socket, supports the latest AMD AM3 CPUs out of the box, and supports DDR3 memory. DFI advertises this board to be "the best OC platform".

The board features a 4+1 phase CPU power circuit. It features two full-length electrically 16-lane PCI-Express 2.0 slots to support ATI CrossFireX. The third full-length slot is electrically x4. The board supports DDR3 800/1066/1333 MHz memory, and DDR3-1600 by overclocking. DFI uses the Marvell 8056 gigabit Ethernet controller, which is advertised to be 15% faster than competing models. Audio is care of Realtek ALC885 HD audio. LANParty ABS II on the fly overclocking feature, backed by DFI's iconic Genie BIOS, make for the rest of the feature-set.

I love their 790FX layout, so clean and colourful, just wish it had few more features

Get the drivers sorted out as well, but keep it clocking!!!

thats a good lookin layout to my eyes, Easily use PCI PCI cards with multi slot GPU's and Crossfire while still being able to use a PCI sound card.

Lame how the 3rd PCI-E is 4x? Dont knwo what it means Electronically 4x lol
But i guess you could just use that last one for PHYSX if you care or a PCI-E 1x Sound card or other device would be fine in that slot.

Either way it looks good, wonder what it can do with the tri core and quad 940

Does this one allow 2 or 4 dimms in ddr3 1600mhz or is AM3 Still gimped with that?
