DFI LANPARTY UT X58-T3eH8
Mit dem UT X58-T3eH8 erreicht uns ein optisch markantes, auf Intels X58 basierendes Mainboard. Das farbenfrohe und mit sehr aufwändiger Heatpipe sowie zusätzlicher Kühler bestückte Mainboard bietet neben drei SLI-fähigen PCIe-x16 Slots auch ein acht-Phasen Digital Power Management, das eine stabile und effiziente Stromversorgung garantiert, was vor allem für "Extrem Overclocking" von Bedeutung ist.
Today we look at the crest of the LanParty mountain, and the UT series top dog. The DFI LanParty UT X58-T3eH8 is based on the Intel X58 chipset and supports all the features that has made the Intel X58 one of the most diverse and powerful chipsets to date. Features like Quad CrossFireX and 3-way SLI operation, six triple-channel memory DIMM slots, and dual gigabit LAN connections are all present on the UT X58-T3eH8.
When you now think of DFI, the LANParty series of boards are extremely popular, especially with overclockers and even case modders who want a functional board with extreme performance and a good aesthetic design. Today we have their latest offering and without surprise it’s for the Core i7.
DFI are focused purely on performance. You won't find unneeded power saving features on this motherboard as it was not designed to save the planet, it was designed to blow it apart. I sometimes wonder why some manufacturers make a big deal out of the green features of it's boards but then add useless extras that negate the power saving cost in the first place. DFI simply do not play that game.
The motherboard choice is not as obvious, even though a single chipset is being used across the board. The Intel X58 is what drives all Core i7 motherboards today and for the most part you will have to pay dearly for it. Recently we reviewed the MSI X58 Pro-E which is priced at just $190, making it one of the cheapest Core i7 motherboards available. This well designed motherboard offers excellent tuning potential, though it lacks many features found in more expensive X58 products.
