Default ds3r or dfi dk lanparty?

so whats the verdict?

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Dynamic Energy Saver Ultra Durable II Intel Motherboard - Retail

Newegg.com - DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

i know that the dfi voids the warranty for changing the cooler on the northbridge even though it runs ridiculously hot, but the BIOS is supposedly better than the DS3R. hmmmm.

The LANPARTY is still a viable choice for today's builds?

get the dark series p35 lanparty. Even though it only has one pci-e slot, you will be blown away by the other features it posesses. Not to mention all of the great bios options for OCing, its one of the best OCing boards out there. My roomate just picked up this board for his E6750, and he has it stable at 3.5ghz.

I have a DS3R and I can oc my e6750 to 4.0ghz with relative stability (Orthos 8 hours). I have never had a LAN Party board but I know you will not be disappointed with the DS3R. Best Advice I can give is to find someone with the lan party board.
