The Intel based INFINITY P965 motherboard provides users with a perfect solution that not only offers tremendously high performance and “over-clockablity” but also boosts an extremely attractive price. DFI has chosen to use the Intel P965 + ICH8R chipsets to allow the board to support the most advance processors (including Core 2 Quad), DDRII-800 and Crossfire functions. Although the motherboard is a bit late arriving to the market the motherboard and BIOS are brilliantly designed to offer users unsurpassed over-clocking that will not disappoint even the most advanced overclocker. In addition DFI has redesigned the packaging to further accent the fact that DFI's Infinity series have entered the next generation of gaming performance.

Yay! I want one! I wonder how fast those PciX16 are in crossfire? And the price?

Was looking to maybe buy Infinity 975X/G in the near future, but now this came and seems like a winner. It better be cheaper than it's big brother though. Northbridge heatsink looks massive! (good)

2,1125V for core and 3.375V for mem! This board scares me, those would be high even for A64 : o

FUCKING HELL *falls into a state of depression* This is like the best P965 motherboad avaliable atm.

EDIT: Though, it is inferior to the 975X/G, only 4 phase digital PVM and 16x + 4x Crossfire.
Okay i fretted too much, the 975X/G > P965 anyway but guys, this is the best P965 motherboard, compared to ASUS who use superflous cooling solutions this is a clear winner. If you plan on getting the P5B, screw it. This is way better. DFI always uses that "overclock friendly" Type of capacitor =D, and I think on both motherboards they have this "cube" type.

DFI FTW

Something that made me cry:

-975X Supported 0 SATA Ports
-P965 Supports 2 SATA Ports.
-My motherboard is green
-P965 Infinity is Black
-P965 Comes in solid capacitor form
-P965 Comes in a extremely "pro box".
-P965 has one more PCI slot than 975X/G
I want one

exactly the same here... having an xfire mobo would have left me more room for the bigass cooler on my GTX.

Difference, is that:

-965 only has a 4-phase PVM as opposed to 6-Phase
-16x + 4x Crossfire. Wheras 975X/G Has full crossfire (and SLI)
-Has two more SATA connectors.
-Does not come with ESATA
-Has one more PCI slot than the older slibling
-Black PCB
-Different circuit layout, being more logical.
-Runs cooler than 975, the stock northbridge is overkill for the Infinity P965!!! It would be better off on the 975X/G, since the heat generated is an issue on the motherboard.

Yeah TK, but 975 boards don't overclock near as well as 965 boards.
