Those of you familiar with our site know that many of us love DFI's products. The company's motherboards are some of the best in the business, and no matter who tries to overtake them, the LANParty boards still offer the best overclocking experience. Therefore, all of you who are looking to buy a new AM2 processor over Intel's Conroe might wish to listen up: DFI has released its latest addition to the lineup, the LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R
It's another mouthful title, but the board is packed with features. First off, it features NVIDIA's NForce 590 chipset, which is a whole can of benefits in itself. You can read more about the 590 here
if you've yet to make yourself familiar. Since the board supports AM2 chips, it also supports DDR2.
Other features of the new board include:
- Two PCI-E 16x slots (each running at 16x in SLI)
- Five-phase power regulation
- Realtek ALC885 sound on a Karajan daughter-board
- Copper Northbridge fan
The copper northbridge fan (which resembles Zalman's flower cooler designs) seems like such a silly thing to list as a real 'feature', but from someone who uses a LANParty UT NF4 board, I am willing to bet this is a great improvement. The board will also feature other incredibly handy things that we've come to expect from DFI, such as LED POST lights and a one-touch CMOS clear, for those of you who push things a little too far at times.
We'll look forward to getting this board in our labs, so we can let you know what we think of it. In the meantime, let us know if you're anxious to get your own hands on one in our forums
