    The guys at TweakTown have some good news for us. They have spoken to the main engineers responsible for the DFI LANPARTY motherboards and can now confirm two new motherboards. DFI are currently working on the first versions of their RD600 motherboard and testing is going well. ATI’s upcoming codenamed RD600 chipset has support for Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Extreme processors and overclocking potential to around 430–450MHz FSB. DFI plans to release the motherboard sometime in September this year. DFI also plans to introduce Conroe+SLI capable motherboard based on NVIDIA's nForce 590 SLI chipset. In fact it's almost finished and has to be released for sale by the end of August this year.

    Ehm, wtf, 2 fans and one on an alu heatsink. DFI cooling designs need to realize the 80s are dead and buried...

    Especially the alu is insulting.

    I given up on DFI, I've dealt with 2 of their boards in the past. And I've went back to reliable manufacturers both times. Everything is someone else's fault with that company. OH the power supply isn't compatible, oh the RAM isn't compatible. So you buy something on their "guaranteed super duper recommended DFI certified lists" and the thing still doesn't behave properly.

    I haven't had any problems with mine so far...I went with one of their 'recommended" memory, GeIL Ultra, and everything is working fine...but haven't had it for too long so not too sure yet...

    I've had the same issues with DFI. and the exact same reason I won't continue to buy their products.

    Dead DFI mobo that wont behave... swap in an Abit or Asus, problem solved.

    Note: Most people replace the heatsinks on these mobos anyways, so Al is cheaper+gets the job done effectivly for chipsets ;)

    It's a choice isn't it? You buy what you can handle. I've never had a problem, but I've seen pretty many users messing up their systems by not being willing to accept that an enthusiast mobo with a lot of potential also means a need for more know-how and responsibility to read up and maintain the system. Another common problem is that too many users view themselves as "bad ass experts", so any advice is rejected with an attitude.

    If you're not up to it, don't touch it. Most comments here look as unnecessary spam.

    No manufacturer gets everything perfect, but as for now I can't see any real contender to DFI.

    So many people complain that DFI is not stable and such, but if you go to DFI Street, they even say that the auto settings are for low-end parts/memory, so you'll have to do tweaking to make it stable...it's an overclocking motherboard, and if you're not gonna overclock, then don't buy it...simple as that...but DFI can't be touched when it comes to overclocking...
