Default 3 DFI X48 boards



The UT w/ cooling by ThermalRight. Doesn't that heatsink look like its going to stick out the back of the case?



The LT which looks the same as the x38



The DK. Looks like the DK is 4 phase and doesn't use Digital pwm

I'm curious to see how that heatsink works. Looks too delicate to leave outside like that.

I'm likin' the DK. Although I wish they could of kept it the way it was, like the X38, where the NB heatsink was off, so you can add your own.

Those heatpipes look pretty sturdy I'm sure they can fend for their own

Seems like a good idea though. Won't be releasing heat inside the case now.

I'm not worried about the heatpipes but more where it actually mounts on to. I want to see the DK price. Should be around 250ish
