Its almost half a year when Intel Bearlake chipset launched.
3 top motherboard manufacturers were released different versions P35 platform.
Price is quite reasonable, which are around US$135~160.
That kinds of pricing are popular in the market.
DFI has created 3 different P35 based motherboards.
They are: DFI LP UT P35-T2R/DFI LP LT P35-T2R.
Two high-end models are mostly focus on performance and overclocking.
Later, DFI also released an entry-level version: Blood-Iron P35.
Overclock performance is good as usual. But features and components usage is a quite entry-level .
Recently, DFI launched a new LANParty series, called DK.
The LANParty DK P35. It has 3 different versions:
1)full solid capacitor + ICH9R
2)full Japanese capacitors + ICH9R
3)full Japanese capacitors + ICH9
They priced around US$150~170.
The leading character this time is DFI LANParty DK P35s Jap. Caps. + ICH9R version
This model also has CMOS Reloaded function, it almost the same to high-end models P35.

Dual SP2004 Blend mode runs steady!!
Quad-core in FSB500 by 4X Super PI 32M finished!!
Quad-core in FSB522 by 1X Super PI 32M finished!!
I used this QX6800 CPU OC with most P35 boards in the market, it gained around FSB470~480.
Although the highest record with quad-core almost reached 484MHz.
It is hard to imagine that this DK series board can push the FSB limitation to another level. It rocks me.
Hope these 3 version of DK series can be satisfied enthusiast as a different choice!!
