5 out of 5 eggs Best board out there 04/11/2009

This review is from: DFI LANParty DK 790FXB-M3H5 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

This motherboard is just plain awesome. It lives up to DFI's reputation. Features perfect for overclocking, lots of BIOS options, rear-accessible CMOS reset, you can save multiple CMOS config setups, and most of all, it has three PCI slots instead of a bunch of useless PCIe x1 slots. It can accommodate two dual-slot video cards in crossfire, AND your Killer NIC and PCI sound card. This is the board I've been waiting for.

Cons:

Manual doesn't document all the settings. I had to google quite a few of them, as I went straight from a 939/DDR to AM3/DDR3, and was unfamiliar with many settings. Northbridge/Southbridge cooling could stand to be more effective.

Other Thoughts:

I love this board, the cons are all minor. It booted my Phenom II X3 720BE at 4GHz with only minor tweaks. Now if only I could get my DDR3 2000 to boot above 1500MHz...
