    Agreed - DFIs are definately not a beginner's board.

    because that dfi has the best slot layout of any motherboard by a long way?

    And yes - been running that chip in my dfi board for ages.

    Yep it should go like stink

    But if you don't know what your talking about I'd suggest oe of two things

    1: Go read everything at DFI Street - DFI's support forums - Here

    or

    2: Get something that's a lot easier

    They're NOT difficult to use IF you make sure you get the right parts, plug everything in and set the BIOS correctly

    The DFI nf4 boards also bench quite well.

    On auto settings they really aren't that different to any other board, its just there are more options. If you just ignore the majority of them then it is no different to anything else as with other boards they will be on auto as you don't have the option to change them.

    I would say go for it, you'll learn a lot more about overclocking with a dfi as it is a bit more hands on but not prohibitively so.

    DFI doesnt seem any bother at all to run but at least you have all the right bios adjustments if you do get the bug. Most people start off leaving everything at stock but then curiosity to overclock usually wins.
    Good luck it should fly.

    I think you answered yer intial remark there rainbow about why I wanted a DFI. Yes I know little but like to take the viewpoint that I get the best tools to do the job if I'm looking to learn.

    Hence I'm getting two pieces of good kit to help. And I have the support of good mates to assist and prevent me from blowing up the pc, house, neighbourhood - whatever it is that happens when oc'ing goes wrong.
