DFI LANPARTY UT nF3 AMD Motherboard

Suzette S., Newegg
31 October 2015
  • Pros: Bought this in 2004. It finally died after 11 years. It was my kids and they upgraded about 3-4 years after purchase, then it got grandfathered to my wife, and then finally her uncle. Not sure if it died on its own or took a power hit as the caps were bloated.
  • Cons: The only thing i didn't like about it was the placement of the power supply connector at the very edge of the motherboard. It didn't pose a problem in the long run. You just have to be careful when plugging it in.

Too many problems!

CURTIS H., Newegg
3 April 2006
  • Summary: Some serious quality problems here. Besides the hassle of assembling then tearing down my setup 3 times, having to go through RMAs each time was not cool. I finally switched to the MUCH more stable ASUS K8N board and it's been humming along nicely.
  • Pros: 1. Good board for overclocking (if you get one that works); lots of bells and whistles.
  • Cons: I went through 3 of these boards in about 6 weeks (only ran at stock speeds, never overclocked): 1. The first board worked ok for about 2 weeks. Then it fried my 6800GT video card (ouch!). About a week later it died and I could not get it to post. 2. Second board worked great, until I found that ...

Solution for Northbridge Cooler

Anonymous, Newegg
2 April 2006
  • Pros: The passive aluminum Northbridge Chipset Cooler can be replaced with a VANTEC CCB-A1C (Copper) VGA Cooler. No modifications need to be done to the Vantec Cooler or the motherboard.
  • Cons: The motherboard comes standard with a rather wimpy aluminum cooler causing Northbridge temps to run a bit high during overclocking.

Excellent to me

Steven M., Newegg
2 April 2006
  • Summary: I would say this is a very stable mobo. It has givin me months of reliable service. I owned a DFI previously and it worked great. I would recommend them to anyone.
  • Pros: Great mobo. Very Stable. Very easy overclocking bios settings for those not keen on settings.
  • Cons: Had a problem with the onboard nic after I upgraded drivers and bios a few months ago. Had to enter the MAC manually in the bios to make it work. If this is the only thing it has wrong I can accept that.

Newegg dropped the ball with this one

Anonymous, Newegg
28 March 2006
  • Summary: Really let me down on this one, but hell it works and its been runnin smooth since.
  • Pros: Easy to work with. DIY's dream board. 4 SATA connectors as well as some nice rounded cables for the IDEs. Easy to install and run (after like the 3rd time . . .)
  • Cons: OK here's the reason for my low score. I went through two boards (the first shorted out on me, guess it was my fault) and the second one that they shipped had two major flasw: malfunctioning audio plugs (had to install a sounblaster) and the plastic holder for the agp slot was gone. Not newegg's ...

Seriously defective

Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2006
  • Summary: Newegg deserves an A+++ rating for their handling of this matter, including their dropping this model from their inventory. Run them up a flagpole and I will surely salute and they will continue to have my business.
  • Pros: Well rated and highly recommended previously. Has many desireable design features.
  • Cons: Both boards of this model have failed within a month of being put into service. DFI appears to have serious production problems.

Solid, stable board

Anonymous, Newegg
24 March 2006
  • Summary: I have not tried to overclock this board. I bought this for its high stability rating and it hasn't failed me yet.
  • Pros: This board has been a fast and stable workhorse. I haven't had any problems with drivers or devices. It has been a great starter in the 64 bit world.
  • Cons: Maybe if you don't like yellow.

USB failed

Andrew J., Newegg
23 March 2006
  • Summary: Won't buy DFI again, but I'm not scrambling to replace it either. Works for now.
  • Pros: For me... easy upgrade from the old board. no OS reinstall required. Great performance!
  • Cons: All of the sudden, every USB port on the board... stopped working all at once. Tried booting in knoppix, but it couldn't see the ports either (ruled out OS error). $xx bucks get's me a pci usb card, but I can't use the two front ports!
