What can I say? This board is great!

Michael F., Newegg
24 July 2007
  • Summary: System from June 2006: AMD Opteron 270 (overclocked from 2.0 to 2.7 GHZ) DFI Infinity RS482 board 2GB Dual Channel G.Skill DDR 500 (PC400) 2x Seagate 80GB 7200RPM HDD (Raid 0) Sapphire Radeon X1800XT 256MB Still runs awesome!
  • Pros: Board is extremely stable. Great over clocking features which are simple to use. On board sound produces excellent sound quality. Micro-ATX board which would be great for HTPC or a gaming system.
  • Cons: Only has 1 PCI X-Press x16 slot. This is NOT an SLI/Crossfire board, but if you don't need that, it truly is spectacular.

Packed with features

  • Summary: I have yet to try the "surround view" setup. It is supposed to let you run 4 monitors at one time with the addition of a PCI-e card. I run 2 Samsung syncmasters now... planning on getting another to have tri-screen...
  • Pros: Great board! I am amazed at how much stuff is on this board. A VGA and DVI connector on-board, for dual screen setups on the cheap. My setup- AMD X2 4200+, ASUS x1950 Pro, and 1gb of Geil Ram. This was a fast cheap and easy upgrade for me coming from 6800gt and P4 2.5 Ghz. Also has the option of ...
  • Cons: None, nada, zip.... so far

  • Summary: DFI has very capable engineers in their customer service department and quickly respond to questions, contact them first when you are unsure about anything, everyone at DFI is highly qualified.
  • Pros: This is an excellent product, I've done over 30 installs now using this DFI Micro board without a single problem, mostly multi-boot, using XP & Media Center & Vista & Linux, both 32 & 64 bit OS's for friends, and my own. Everyone’s very happy with them for about 2 years. It has great 8 channel so...
  • Cons: From reading all the negative reviews on this, and many other motherboards, I'm very worried about our Gene Pool, Please when your product arrives have someone that knows what they are doing help you from the very start, don't connect some funny smelling shorted out PSU and then call your friendl...

  • Summary: Don't buy. It is a waste of money unless you love taking apart your computer and replacing your mb.
  • Pros: It is awesome when it works.
  • Cons: I've had 2 of these die on me already. This is what I get for using something else besides Asus or Biostar.
