    [First Look] DFI LT X38-T2R First Testing ( 56K warning~~~)

    I received one X38-T2R sample from DFI company. I don't have more time to test all. I just test Retail Yorkfield FSB 450 stable quickly and share some pics to everyone.

    This mobo will be available on Motherboardpro within few days.



    Here is mobo pics.



























    All chips on mobo
















    BIOS options






















    Mobo: DFI X38-T2R
    CPU: Retail QX9650
    Ram: GSKILL DDR2 1000 HZ
    Power: TT 1200W
    VGA: ATI HD3870 Crossfire
    Cooling: U-120 Extreme



    Yorkfield Quad Core FSB 450 Stable




    3D Mark 2006 Stable








    I thought it will have some numbers testing within few days.

    Good Luck and Thanks your reading

    Any idea when one with DDR3 support will become available?

    Nice board
    Can you maybe test max FSB on a E6850 with high limits?

    Excellent photos and awesome board, just like all LP's. It's nice to see that "Thermalright style" NB heatsink, but may become a problem when installing huge CPU coolers.

    Thanks for this. The bios options are a mirror image to that of their P35-T2R board.

    The UT version comes with a SB/NB/PWM cooler connected by a heatpipe, it also comes with the transpiper. Other than that the UT/LT boards are electrically identical. Personally, I believe the LT option is a better solution here, as I find the transpiper included with my P35-T2R to be of little use (not totally useless, but for the added costs it's not worth it).

    I've heard DDR3 support will be on a model named X38-T3R.

    Looks very nice. Never had a DFI board, but this one is tempting.

    Thank you sir for posting!

    The BIOS is very similar to the DFI P35-T2R, as one would expect, but the CPU VTT voltage can be set to 1.73v with X38 vs 1.6v with the P35, that should help with higher FSB's. that is if the board doesn't go up in flames above 1.6v vtt

    Question: In all or you guys' esteemed opinion, is this gonna be a board that is hard to find/out of stock a lot around Christmas time or January?

    I want to get one, but with my recent purchase of a 3870 and a new case I should hold off till the new year, unless of course, it is worth it to get this first opportunity.

    I would get it judging from the performance already established by the P35 it can only be better especially with the added PCI-E 2.0 and extra bandwidth

    Very interesting results, I was considering to get the Asus Maximus formula, however I just found out our neighbour Germany, will get some samples upcomming friday, for just 199 euro , cheaper then then the average cost of a Maximus formula of 220 euro here........ But I still dont know if I should get it based on this pre-results or wait, as I am not familiar to DFI and more with ASUS and the DFI BIOS is pretty advanced it seems....very hard these days choosing a motherboard.

    what paste do DFI usually use, under their SB and NB heatsink, do u need to heat it up in order to get it off, or it is really easy to remove it right out of the box. ( looking for peeps who did this with the P35 T2R, would probbly more or less the same on this board)
    man I saw @ the maximus thread it seems to be a pain in the ass to remove the junk they used there. And would a Thermalright Extreme fit with the Stock NB heatsink?

    No. I think Andre has the only one in existence for the moment.
    Which is ok. I'll start doing some 2x2GB stuff tonight on the P35.
