Mainboard makers announced updated versions of their products adding to their names something like “rev. 2.0”. This marking indicated the new North Bridge that was stable at a FSB frequency of 200MHz and higher. It was often not only the chipset that changed, but also the wiring, component layout, cooling system and accessories. Major companies were the first to offer new products, and minor manufacturers followed the suit soon after. The Taiwanese DFI has also rolled out an updated product. Well, welcome DFI LanParty NF II Ultra B mainboard.
DFI LanParty NFII Ultra B mainboard was intended to be an excellent high-end mainboard, complemented by its stylish looks, rich accessories and interesting features. On the other hand, the idea was almost ruined by the above mentioned drawbacks (imperfect PCB design, average FSB overclocking opportunities). I can’t recommend you this mainboard if you are a dedicated overclocker. Although, an ordinary user may like it a lot. Just weigh all pros and contras and make up your mind!
