Default Why does everyone like this "lanparty" mobo?

I mean, besides the fact that it has SLI what other things does it have that makes it so popular.

Mr. Oskar Wu, originally worket for Abit. He designed some of the best Abit mobo's to be OC. Now he works for DFI. DFI makes some great OC mobo's now. So DFI are not only good for lanpartys, but they are great for OC. That over all makes them ideal for gamers.

Well if the boards are dyin on you then i guess you gotta look at what your doin wrong. Its rare for a mobo to die on you but its more rare for two mobos to die on you. Look into the hardware your using on it and the psu. On topic now DFI Lanparty boards have some great features BESIDES the uv reactive colors. It has lots of bios features including great oc features and its pretty much an all around cool board.

Yeah P.P. Mguire, i agree with you on both terms. You have to be doing something wrong with those boards. Lanparty's are very well configured mobo's. Personally, i would only get Abit, MSI, DFI and Asus boards. In that order too. I dont trust brands like soyo, rock, or gigabyte. Although i do think gigabyte makes some nice video cards, but very expensive.

It has I believe 8 SATA ports/slots whatever, It has 2 gigabit Ethernet controllers. SLI is an attractive concept. Pretty colors!
