whoever told you they are unstable deserves to be shot. the LanParty series are prided on stability. everything is regulated perfectly which is why they make such good overclocking boards

Yes.


schulz, you can get the Lanparty Ultra-D from newegg for $123 US currency.

I have the Lanparty UT nF3 250GB and it is as solid as a rock. No complaints at all.

I'm really glad I got this board when I did too because they have been discontinued.

edit: oh you posted just before me and said that your getting it from zipzoomfly so nevermind about newegg.
