Default DFI Motherboards

I've been thinking about buying the DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D Motherboard I've been reading a lot about how good DFI boards are good for overclocking, but if I don't plan to overclock much, or at all, would it still be a good idea to go with that board or an ASUS? Thanks.

Ok......people keep saying this but it seems no ones looked into it recently. Last I heard, DFI took preventative measures against this and put out new revisions of the board to prevent being able to mod it to SLI.

This was quite some time ago, so if they did do it, all the boards now won't be moddable.

No you are wrong. They just covered the contacts with epoxy to make it harder. Now you just have to take the epoxy off.

Yeah from what I heard, they just put epoxy over it, and that does make it harder to do, but it's not impossible.
