DFI LANparty UT P35-T2R close-up



Review: DFI LANparty UT, an overclocker's dream

Today we take a close look at DFI's answer to all overclocker prayers. Where the BIOS settings of other boards stop, DFI gives you the freedom to change any setting available, but you should know what you are doing. This board is targeted to the high-end overclocker customer, but even "normal" folk will be happy with it.
