Which to buy DFI or ASUS?

Hey guys,

I see that most of you guys are running ASUS p4800 deluxes. Not sure if I want to buy one of these or the new DFI Lan party boards.

Any pros and cons of these boards would help. Keep in mind that I will be watercooling and space and locations of connectors are an issue.

I had the same problem a few months ago and I ended up going with the DFI. It hasn't given me any problems. They're both good boards. I think the DFI ended up having a little bit better cpu voltage selections then the ASUS. However I would have liked it to have further vdimm settings.

Overall, both very good boards. I just like to be different. You will probably have more support on forums with any issues if you go with the ASUS though.

Yeah...i have been leaning toward the DFI for a while...especially after some of Bigtoes reviews. Prolly gonna pick one up. I've been an asus fan for a while and the p4s8x experience has kinda turned me off of asus. Thanks for the replies.

I have the P4C800E-D and the DFI LanParty 875P A.

Both are great boards. I lean only slightly towards the P4C800E-D due to the vdimm but then again, I can't oc the P4C800E-D and yet I have a 2.6c oc'ed to 3.25 with OCZ4000 running at DDR500.

The NForce Lanparty can give 3.3 vdimm. The Pro875B gives 2.9, but has an easy to do vdimm mod.

If I'm not mistaken, the DFI 875 Infinity is the same board as the Lanparty without the girly name and candy coloring.

It's also cheaper!

Yeah, if you aren't going to use onboard sound and show your case off as a work of glowing art. You could probably just get the: DFI 875P Ultra Infinity.

Im switching to DFI here shortly. And the board you mention would be much more to my liking sharkims. No pumpkin orange colored slots!!

Unfortunately right now all newegg carries is the LANPARTY 875B . Any suggestions on some other good DFI retailers?

Im just starting to learn the world of DFI myself. But my understanding is that theres two lines of 875 late revision boards from DFI: The LANPARTY sereis and the Infinity series. Last I checked the LANPARTY series is the only one on newegg.

Ultimately Id be happy with either. But given the choice I can live without the tuti fruiti colors
