Default DFI Lanparty LT X38-T2R S775 Motherboard Review

We take a look at the newest DFI Intel motherboard, based on the X38 chipset, the successor of the high end version of the P35. Can DFI work their magic and produce a tweakers dream X38 board? We find out.

Nice review maybe try with 1/11 official bios as it changes the way clock fine delay values are set. Also try with clock cross settings and common clock setting set to More Aggressive with Enhanced Data transmitting and addressing set to FAST and T2 Dispatch enabled.

Greetings from Germany!

Just a question, if you're reviewing such a high-end OC board, why is there no overclocking section? Many other mobo reviews I read include a section where they talk about overclocking, for example if this mobo was able to push more CPU clocks outta their system or not.

Yea, I saw that, but that's your standard overclocked speed for that E6300 from what I've seen? What I meant was how this boards overclocking potential compared to other boards, for example if you were able to achieve an even greater overclock from this board than you were from for example the Asrock 4core P35 board

I did not continue my tests above 500FSB, for the simple reason that I cannot guarantee stability above 500FSB with the E6300 on air cooling (and I did not want to insulate the board for phase-change tests).

600FSB is very easy for the Dfi in 99,9% of the cases. The Asrock P35 is not built for overclocks, whereas the DFI is built especially for the overclockers.

Eva, is it okay to test these settings on my P35 motherboard? Or is it purely for the X38 board to tune the memory settings?
