The days of DFI being the overclocker's dream board is a thing of the past. Too bad, they had a really good run in the socket A and 939 days.

I did almost a 4ghz on cooled watercooling on a phenom 1 with almost the same board :)
Just the AM2+ instead of AM3 who said dfi isnt overclocking boards ? :p gigabyte and asus just pulled off 3600 mhz on this baby :p

The board utilze almost the same stuff as the 790FXB boards, and therefore is almost the same ;) HT-Ref clocking isnt that good, but with a black edition isnt that a problem, a microatx system would be a great option with this board, and its what i use it for mostly, sometimes i use it for some overclocking aswell.

Wudnt say terrible overclocker, that was done one phase cooling -20 gigabyte board didnt that well one same cpu and cooling

cooling used for the picture belov, some ice which there is loads off in norway, i could just lay a radiator outside during the winter and get lower temperatures. but its a aquacomputer waterblock, a strong waterpump called iwaki 24 volts pump, and a bucket(or what it is calleD) with water and ice, nothing special :)
