    DFI LP UT NF680i LT SLI-T2R nears completion

    here is the most recent picture for the upcoming SLI LanParty
    please note that even as of today the NB cooler design is not final i get the impression we are going to see a seriously advanced solution on this mobo's NB as stock...

    oh and ETA is April currently and pricing i feel will be better than a lot of the other 680i mobo's

    dinos22 - that's what digital pwm can do for cleanliness

    Solarfall - i understand that the proposed cooler is a tall heatpiped number with an active cooler.
    OSKAR has understood for months that the 680i chipset needs geat cooling to perform at its best.

    hopefully this board is good, its kinda late for a 680i board
    and they have a lot of competition but i guess that only benefits us
    I miss the yellow color scheme though, not too fond of orange

    I loved my SLI-DR back in the AMD days
    lets just hope DFI isnt one of those companies that only has "5 minutes of fame"

    i have the RD600 with same digital pwm...the vdroop in this design is very low...so low its next to 0

    the real question is can OSKAR and his team get this mobo to clock quad-core fsb like the infinity 965, asus p5b and the new rev EVGA 680i
    and since DFI have a board that does clock quad cores perfectly there is good hope this one will too.

    The socket alone makes this a phase/LN2 dream board. I will agree that the NB looks ugly as hell but might as well throw a waterloop on it considering how hot the 680i chipsets have been getting in the past.

    3 days ago I was informed by DFI Europe that they've just received the sample of that board. They don't have information yet when more mobos will be delivered. I've just asked them if is the final version of the board and if mobo from the picture which flytek has attached is the same as their sample

    the sample should be the same as this...but i know a new cooler is being tested
    and when i was given this pic the non-finallity of the NB cooler was stressed pointedly

    it does look nice and open just wish we could get some of the thumbnail pics sans heatsink to get a good look at it.

    Wow... thats lookin seriously nice... I love the fact they have no figgin heatpipes snaking all over the place... makes it much easier to cool without having to worry about PWM cooling like on my IN9...

    i think the clear socket area will look very similar to my RD600 below.
    if i actually had the 680i mobo there would be a lot better pics

    The thing that really bums me out is the NB clip secure method. The NB cooler better not be irritating under high thermal load because it will be a PITA to replace with a water block.

    DDR3 will have some time around the market to get great latency and frequency. Currently is just DDR2 with high frequency. if you buy p35 + ddr3 that's a waste of money!
