DFI LanParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G mainboard is a very interesting product with great specifications and a few interesting features, however, the limitations we discovered during our processor overclocking experiments wouldn’t let us pronounce it the ultimate overclocking choice. Hopefully these limitations will be eliminated in the new BIOS versions, but if they come from the non-standard PCB layout, then we might need to wait for the new mainboard revision. And what is really suspicious, no new official BIOS versions have been released since August 2006.
Among the obvious advantages of the DFI LanParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G mainboard we should have mentioned its low price, especially compared with ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe, however, there are very few offers online right now, which means it is not selling widely.
However, the major problem is not even in the mainboard, but in the chipset it is based on. Only dedicated fans of those who do not need the highest performance can prefer AMD processors to Intel Core 2 Duo at this time, and we will not talk about these guys right now. The other remaining group of users is those who cannot spend $200 on a CPU only. So, it is really hard to believe that they will spend the same $200 on a mainboard only with a Sempron or one of the youngest Athlon 64 processors. These CPUs need simpler mainboard solutions, something on nForce 570. And who will be the potential user of the expensive nForce 590 based solutions? Probably the companies who need to make sure they have the top product in their systems, in order to maintain their image.
