DFI has always been known for its high-performance (if picky) mainboards.
So it was no surprise that they would jump into the X58 market with both feet.


What I do not think would have been expected would be a high-end MicroATX board for the Core i7. But that is just what they have done according to VR-Zone.


The new DFI LanParty JR X58-T3H6 sports the X58 chipset, Six DDR3 slots, two PCI x16 slots (more than likely x16 physical and x8 data) for SLI or Crossfire and a host of other features that make this a truly powerful little board.
