Default Another DFI Infinity Dark review by MadShrimps

Another shining review for the new board with the old chipset- notice the tweaking guide they recommend..

The Good

Reasonably priced.
impressive variety of BIOS tweaking options and voltage settings.
FSB can reach 500Mhz easily without extra voltage, allowing you to max out your CPU overclock.
DRAM can be overclocked on this board up to 1200Mhz, so far only the Asus P5B Deluxe does the same.

The not so good
DFI is late to market with their “killer” P965 board.
Less important… but still, no “DARK” logo when system boots up.

DFI continues their winning strike by providing quality motherboards, while never being first on the market, their products do benefit from time spend tweaking the BIOS, the end result is an Intel P965 based motherboard which flies past all competition.

For those who bought this fine DFI board we can heartily recommend this
BIOS tweaking guide at TheTechRepository.
