DFI LanParty Line Gains New Product Type

DFI is well-known for its LanParty line of overclocking motherboards that bear a dizzying array of tweaking options.  But what is the point of having so many options if you're CPU cooling isn't adequate to handle the overclock you are attempting to achieve?  DFI seeks to take care of this by developing their own, LanParty branded heatsink.  Featuring 6 heatpipes acting effectively as twice that number, this massive hunk of aluminium seems to slightly resemble the high performance Thermalright TRUE.  As DFI has worked with Thermalright before with their chipset cooling solutions, there is a reasonable chance this is yet another of their collaborations.


Will DFI's LanParty heatsink live up to the company's high reputation and prove to be a top-notch performer?

Definitely 4GB@800mHz. 6GB will rarely be fully utilized and at 533 MHz the bandwidth is significantly lower than 800MHz, slowing down memory intensive applications.

Thanks :) This is good becuase I just ordered 2x2GB sticks @ 800MHz off Ebuyer while they are at a really cheap price of £35.

I'm starting to getting into DAW (Digital Audio Workstations) to create music, so this memory will be great at reducing the time it takes to proess.

Thanks for the advice :)

For that price, I would go and order two more, make it an 8GB total... It's true that's rarely utilized fully, but you can never have too much ram.

Take advantage of these small prices, DDR2 price will go up.

I regularly use more than 4GB of RAM with Ultimate 64, mainly by running firefox and a game (e.g. crysis or fallout). 8GB might be overkill, but with superfetch, its a nice thing to have and to never use a page file (hence mine is at 0) on the hard disk.
However I would go for the 4GB at that price, maybe even upgrade to 8GB if you have the money (that is soooo cheap compared to DDR3 or should that be DDR£?)

Well, I got 4GB DDR2 but it was faulty :( Returning it soon.

That's a bummer, all you can do is dust yourself off and try again. Think bigger, it could be a sign :)

Sorry to hear that, we've all been there...

Well, luckily it was the way I had installed it in the motherboard - it had to go into the secondary slots instead of the primary ones, but it works now and my computer is really really great :D

I'll add my rig specs to my signature soon... there are so many cables in my PC so I'll post some pictures too.

I believe the more memory your computer has available, the more it will use just doing nothing. IE stuff getting added to superfetch.

Only down side I think for now, is that there seem to be a lot (anyone else noticed?) Of people moaning about drivers and the like who have shed loads of memory installed. Seems for some reason it throws a spanner into the works.
