Today we will be pitting the DFI motherboard against ASUS's Crosshair and MSI's K9N SLI Platinum motherboards to see just how things went.
DFI board was running overclocked at 2.25GHz (375MHz FSB x 6), ASUS at 2.16GHz (361MHz FSB x 6) and MSI at 2.11GHz (352MHz FSB x 6) which was the maximum FSB obtainable on each board during our testing. We used DDR2-800 for stock clock speeds and ran the memory at 1:1 when we overclocked.
Let's get this show on the road and see how the new DFI motherboard stacks up against the competition.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.
Here we can see that at stock speeds all boards are just about dead equal. When overclocked the DFI falls back behind the ASUS board.
