Read Kyle's Thoughts ([H]ard|OCP)

That definitely does not sound good at all.

Still, I question the board's long-term durability.

At the risk of starting to sound like I'm trying to pimp other forums...
There's also a lot of discussion on this board over at DFI-Street. Big surprise, huh? :lol:

So does that mean I should get the other boards like the K8N Neo4 or other boards, not the DFI Nf4 Ultra? :?:

Cool! Let us (specifically me) know how the board turns out. I need some confidence inspiring words.

Add me too. I'm am right down between the A8N and the NF4 SLI-DR. I keep hearing about so many people having problems with the DFI, more than any other board. Check the motherboard section of Anandtech Forums. Lots of people are asking this question (including me).

I'm not going to build until late April because I'm still trying to learn which plug goes where and still researching on some stuff.
Seems like people have a lot of bad experinces about DFI's board in anandtech's forums.

Well, that's not a motherboard. And you shouldn't listen to the nonsense people put into newegg reviews.

Great find!

Now to read the review... :)

Edit: Wow, that last page said they ran their OC for 48 hours straight on Prime95. Seems like hit and miss between HardOCP/Anandtech/Neoseeker 's results.

well, there is a new ePox nForce4 ultra board out that looks pretty nice here looks like it would be able to fit the xp-120 as well.
