    DFI is ready with its high-end motherboard based on the Intel X58 chipset, providing support for the Intel Core i7 processors. It features three PCI-E x16 slots, that arrange themselves into x16, x8, x8, to support ATI CrossfireX and NVIDIA SLI technologies. The board is studded with high-grade components that include a digital PWM CPU power circuit. The board provides vDroop control. It features an intricate cooling design, with blocks of aliminum fin arrays over the northbridge, and the VRM areas. The VRM cooler projects out of the case, and over the case-fan, if arranged. DFI is expected to announce this product soon.

    I like it!

    I wonder how much though?

    Yeah that sink should be removable otherwise it would be really hard to put it in a case and install an I/O shield.

    They were removable in the original concept for previous mobo's. Here is the kicker tho, it goes on through the I/O shild and is cooled by the rear 120mm case fan usually. So in essence, you will never see it anyways!

    Looks like a well laid out board. I have never been a fan of DFIs over the top color schemes though.

    I read price would be min $300, since its the UT I would say close to $400.

    frankly dfi boards are not worth the premium. :shadedshu

    Had it, like asus better.

    I love DFI boards but I hate that rear heatsink. I always go DFI when I can. Id actually consider a DFI LP P45 just to see how my X3350 would fare on it. Wonder if it would get as high or higher than my Asus.

    I think that will be my x58 board. I don't see anything wrong with that heatsink, since you'll never see it, and I bet it's effective.

    I love the board, but I don't think I can handle the green color. I'll wait for a Dark version.:)

    Just to answer the heatsink questions. Im sure its removable. You would install the board in your case. Then mount the heat sink which will stick out of the back of your case. Then mount the I/O shield. Its actaully a good idea, what its doing is "passively" directing the heat out of your case. GOOD IDEA, because I know on my Maximus, the monster heatsink looks cool, but the heat is staying in the case.

    Funny how they call the Vdroop control. Another marketing trick putting a simple feature as stable voltage for the CPU into a super feature that you can enable in BIOS and become a "better" overclocker. :)

    I quite like the colour scheme tbh, bit too bright, but I wouldn't be able to resist in wanting to powder coat the heatsinks to the same green or a similar one just so that it all matches.

    Agreed, the green slots are too green, they could use the green shade EVGA uses, but I guess those gaudy colours are UV-reactive, and hence bright.

    LOL. I've heard so many complaints about the colors that DFI uses on their boards. It cracks me up for 2 reasons. I want performance, and I don't give a damn if the board is pink and orange. If it performs well, it simply does not matter to me the color. I'm also "color deficient". Basically, this means that I can see most primary colors, but my eyes can't distinguish between shades, so the shade of green or yellow on boards really means nil to me.

    I think the color scheme is awesome. DFI should make a black board with hot pink UV slots. *drool*
