My personal experience with DFI as a company is anything but stellar. I purchased one of their $300 x48-TR2 boards and it has never worked properly. I was sent another broken board that will not even overclock or retain CMOS settings when power is lost. They were not concerned with my problem what so ever. Further BIOS updates only made things worse. All they wanted me to do was keep sending boards back at my expense. While I have 20+ year in I.T., I was not so egotistical that I did not ask for help. I went thru channels and posted in forums all over. No solutions.
This P.O.S. board is now in a home theatre PC until I replace it. Horrible tech support. Stay away from DFI !!!!!!!! EVGA is my mobo maker now. Asus and Gigabyte also make good boards in my opinion.

Sounds like the CMOS battery is dead, did you replace it already?

That's exactly what I thought too...

Nate,
Where'd this come from? And who held this contest anyway? I don't see how there could be a "Best Choice Award" for a show that's still 1 week out...

Sounds sketchy to me.
