Thumbs up A new home for a RD600. Oh yes.

Just picked up an DFI LANPARTY UT ICFX3200


Very excited for it to come. Will post tons of pictures and BIOS screen shots when it comes. Sold my P5W DH, so I had to pay like 50 more dollars for this.


Im stoked. Can't wait.

The RD600 is the chipset on the motherboard, the R600 is the generation/chipset of the ATI video card.

Tony at XS got this board early, because working at OCZ, he gets to test compatibility on parts before they're released. Looks promising but nothing to drool over. In the benches i've seen it falls slightly behind 680i based boards, and slightly ahead of 975X boards.

Seems a little more expensive than i thought. Though, it's not an Asus Striker ($410).

I assume you're going to overclock, so post some results! I'll soon be jumping to Conroe, myself, but for now i'm just scoping out mobos.

The pricing on that board is absurd...


Yes I will be overclocking alot.


Reason Is I know this CPU can handle 3.7 Stable, but the motherboard I had was just not up to it. I will be doing some 4.0 GHZ+ Suicide benches and such.


New signature too

Heh.

Yep.

It's funny because I have an eVGA 680i Coming from newegg, but as soon as I saw this I was liek SZOMG DFI!1111 so I plan on sending the 680i *back* unopened.

I also will be recording fixes and problems so I can help out the people here and submit some of my results at the new DFI forum, as well as get other peoples fixes.


Im so glad, it looks EXACTLY like my old Lanparty.
