DFI X58 T3H6 JR mATX Motherboard

3D/Rendering Results

 
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to gauge the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 

 
 
3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results. Also included are the CrossfireX results to give an indication of how 8x PCIe lanes perform.
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis

I was initially disappointed with the DFI in the synthetic 3D benchmarks as Cinebench showed the DFI to be lacking when all 8 cores were used to render the image. 3DMark05 placed the DFI at the bottom of the pile too. 3DMark 06 showed a little improvement but nothing spectacular. The DFI T3H6 however saved it's best performance till last, being the highest performing board in Futuremarks latest benchmark, Vantage.
 
Let's see how it gets on in our run of real world gaming...

"The best things come in small packages so they say. DFI's mATX motherboard is the latest X58 mainboard to arrive at OC3D for analysis. See how it performs in our latest review..." - by W3bbo

Nice job webbo.

I'm happy to see more performance mATX boards springing out and actually making it into production. Now we just need one that's 50 less but still as good .

DFI's X58 Jr. is certainly a quality base to build one mean, micro sized machine. Nice to see that unlike the other Jr. boards, both PCI-E slots are electrically 16x.

Owned a DFI LP Jr. P45 T2RS for a couple of months and was very impressed with it. DFI's mATX range is looking very good indeed

Id question wether or not you need a dfi matx, as most people clock the whohas out of them and the insane bios options are half the reason why they buy them.

Not something you need in a HTPC, but chioce is never a bad thing.

Great review matey

Yeah, those that'll make good use of the rediculously high voltage options and tweaking benefits are likely to be using high end or extreme cooling solutions and that usually means either a very large or no case at all.

However, there are those that still want a top end gaming setup but for whatever reason cannot do with a large chassis sitting around. These motherboards allow users to pack high end components into small but capable cases such as the Sugo SG03 and Lian Li V350 series. A somewhat "niche" market but still a market that's worth targeting

Fantastic board really. mATX is a great form factor, especially for those who only have a small corner to tuck a PC away in but still want the best.

Looks like DFI hit the nail on the head

Great review matey!
