    Is it me, or the trends of people having Intel C2Q/C2D's that they are no longer using DFI as their main oc-ing board. Most has ASUS/Gigabyte/Intel/MSI. Did DFI went downhill? :wtf: I've yet to see someone using a P35 Lanparty Greeny.

    Its just that they are very hard to find... they are godlike overclocking boards however.

    Try and get an Intel DFI board in the UK and I'll show you a blue tiger.

    Find an AMD one...well that's easy.

    so are you guys saying its one of the most top 775 boards? taking account into performance, quality, etc. Something like the best money can buy?

    ^ lol

    anyway. just had a quick search about this p35 DFI board, its just like any other DFI board:

    -> OC monster
    -> Has lots of "DFI"-ness. (Well, something like this controller and that controller doesn't work at times, bios error here abit here and there. No wait, don't get me wrong, it's still a heck of a board)

    I am a huge dfi fan myself, and have asked the same question before... and yes that p35 board is hard to get hold of and I know that it is expensive as hell too, which is why not many people have them I spose...

    Maybe its because companies like gigabyte are now putting out much better quality boards at a much lower price....

    2 yrs ago I woulda laughed if you said you had a gigabyte board but damn they are gettin a whole lot better... I would reccommend one of the newer ones no probs... I mean for $120 you can have a 460 fsb!!!! that is smokin'

    I know where i could get a DFI P35 T2R though :p.... seen it on display and i've actually touched it (feels blessed). The board is REALLY stunning to look at.. Its $400 though so pretty expensive. But considering that you get the best peformance possible out of one of these monsters... Its worth it.

    Supposedly, it's real. I call BS, but who knows? There have been stranger things.

    The people that could afford that board will likely add on an 8800 Ultra, or a 2900XT or two, plus maybe an Extreme Edition Quad, etc. so I doubt that it's really worrying for them, how much it costs.
    For me, I'd rather just buy what I can afford, and see what it can do.

    most likely.. or maybe oc-ing is just not about paying the most money and tweak, its something like get a cheaper alternative, if it's gonna oc, then yes.. that's the real challenge, ain't it? dfi is too easy i guess. *thinks for a second*. no wait...
