DFI X48 UT-T3RS Motherboard
In years gone by, DFI was the motherboard of choice for overclockers worldwide. The AMD Skt 939 NF4 Ultra-D was the jewel in DFI's crown, attracting praise from all sectors due to its ultimate overclocking prowess and to a lesser extent, its funky looks. So then, it seemed DFI could do no wrong. Sadly, DFI appeared to drop off the map when Intel's dominance became prevalent with the Core2 series of chips. Asus and Gigabyte took centre stage and enjoyed booming sales due in part to DFI's absence.
Having a solid background of working with NVidia chipsets, DFI released a 680i variant of its Lanparty series but the 965/975 chipsets from Intel were found wanting. It wasn't until the advent of Intel's P35 chipset that we witnessed the switch from NVidia to Intel. With the Lanparty branding still present and the trademark UV slots, DFI were welcomed back with open arms. However, due to hold ups and research in this unfamiliar territory, the Lanparty boards were not released on the chipsets launch, instead arriving midway through the season, which in hindsight is a good thing as the chipsets had time to mature. DFI released not one board but a trio, The DK(Dark), LT(Lethal Tweaking) and UT(Ultra Tweaking), catering for everyone's pocket and needs. The Thai based manufacturer gathered momentum with the X38 LT-T2R proving to be a tremendous board, cementing DFI's return to the limelight (pun intended!).
Today we will be taking a look at DFI's latest Lanparty creation in the form of its flagship X48-T3RS. DDR3, full Crossfire support and topped off with Intel's latest and greatest chipset - the X48 series.

Review touches some nice points, but is mistaken in others. Also too bad that no test was done using dual cores, or 45nm quads. They respond very different than the 65nm Q6600 they tested with.
By the way, one thing the reviewer is right about is the level of difficulty this board poses : newbies stay clear !
Anyway, I'm hard at work at our own DFI X48-T3RS review, so stay tuned...
