    Default Limitation breakthrough?! The initial look of DFI LP UT P35-T2R

    Not long ago, DFI was famed for its LP NF4 series motherboard.
    At that time, LP series board was attracted most of enthusiasts with its OC
    ability, fully Japanese capacitors and SLI “switchable” function.

    DFI LANParty series is mainly focus on high-end performance and OC product.
    Of course, those are a bit expensive… Recently, some models like RD600 or
    680i LT…etc. even though the performance of them are still up to standard,
    but the “launch time” was a bit too late. It lost so much market opportunity.

    The Intel’s P35 chipset is launched in June officially. Fortunately, this time
    will not be lag behind the Intel’s launched time. DFI is ready to launch its P35
    model in August.
    As usual, they’re going to release the highest-end version first, which provides the unique heat pipe solution, “Transpiper”.
    It is DFI LANParty UT P35-T2R.

    The package design adopts the new design, since 680i.
    It uses blue to be the main color, which is my favorite color too.

    1st box, Accessories

    Insides the box…
    Cables, menu, Multi-language quick installation guide, drivers CD…etc.
    The noteworthy features are the Brand new sound card and that copper pieces.

    A close-up on brand new audio card,
    This is called “Bernstein Audio”, an add-on card style.
    The first on board audio supports “Full-Rate Lossless Content Protection codec”. It is 7.1 +2 channels.
    That is really attractive that on board audio can be like this.

    The 2nd box, The Transpiper,
    This gear is just like a secret weapon of DFI. An adjustable heat pipe cooler,
    It can be mounted onto different places of the board. Further, you also can
    extend it to outside of the chassis for a better heat dissipation.

    Inside the box…
    The heat pipe itself. Screws for secure (also can secure a fan on it)
    Installation guild…

    The 3rd box is contains the motherboard itself. fully solid capacitors are
    almost a must of highest-end motherboard.

    Lower left of the board:
    3X PCI-EX16
    1X PCI-EX1
    3X PCI
    The port that right below VIA chipset is the audio module “connecting port”

    Lower right of the board:
    1 x Floppy disk,
    8 x SATAII (ICH9R+JMB363)
    ICH9R, which supports RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5
    JMB363, which supports RAID 0, 1

    Upper right of the board:
    1X IDE
    4 x DIMMs of DDRII, which supports 667/800/1066
    a mark, printed “Made is Taiwan” up there…

    Upper left of the board:
    The 8-phase digital PWM, that is enough to provide stable power for Quad
    cores CPUs.

    IO parts:
    6 x USB 2.0
    1 x 1394
    Dual Gigabit LAN (Supports Teaming function)

    North Bridge cooler

    South Bridge cooler
    It can mount the joint of Transpiper on to the surface.

    This area likes a last part before the “terminal” of the whole heat pipe.
    The heat of the system will be conducted through here to Transpiper
    (outside). Besides, it has a copper “bridge” to connect the CPU and PWM.
    That’s for help to carry out the heat from CPU.

    A powerful motherboard needs a powerful DDRII memory too…
    Corsair PC8888 can reached a good record with 680i ,like:
    DDRII 1310 CL4 4-3-3 2T’s PI 1M

    Drivers’ interface,
    The E6850 of my own…frankly, it is not that hard to reach FSB500.
    But in DFI’s P35, I was surprised it can be easier to get into OS with FSB522.
    Most FSB of the CPU can be overclock to around 480 to 550MHz. I tried the
    same CPU with other brand’s P35 motherboard. They can’t turn-on the
    system when FSB is over 510MHs. DFI LP UT P35-T2R levels up the FSB to a next level.

    I just got this motherboard yet. LANParty series always bring me something
    new about their design and technology.
    This model is obviously had creativity and innovation, especially the heat pipe design.
    Aside from this, the OC performance is really up to the standard.
    Only if you have a good CPU, you can reach FSB600 easily.
    Recently, I saw a review of this model, which ends up with an amazing FSB670 record.
    I believe that most of enthusiasts are look forward to see a better record than DFI NF4 age.
    The BIOS options and OC introduction will be updated soon. Thank you!!

    The 2nd half of my review
    BIOS options
    Boot-up screen

    The main options for tweaking

    Somehow it’s a “characteristic” of Intel chipset when overclocking…
    it will shutdown after tweaking. For that, DFI has 2 different modes to chose:
    Mode 1) when the system was boot-up, it will run a little “diagnose”.
    If the CPU frequency doesn’t change too much, it will skip the “shutdown”
    function and rewrite the clock generator directly.

    Clock VCO Divider
    This function is use to fix the clock generator’s divider and “NB Strap” by its
    jumper. Then, system wouldn’t be reboot again because it presumed itself is
    not in an overclock status. (this function needs to cooperate with particular
    jumper)

    CPU FSB range: from 200 to 700MHz

    Boot-up clock
    This function can help you out by setting a lower boot up clock as a buffer,
    when your FSB is tweaked too high in the beginning.

    Memory Speed ratio option is really plentiful
