A little while back we reviewed DFI's LANParty UT nF3 250Gb motherboard.  While it proved to be the best overclocking motherboard available and provided great memory adjustments, the performance itself was lacking.  The motherboard was only ideal for overclockers and those who know how to fully work with all the memory adjustments.  If you were an average overclocker and left all the memory settings to AUTO, you were stuck with below average performance.  The great potential is only unleashed by tinkering with the BIOS, something that not a lot of people do. 

What we have here today is DFI's lowest end nF4 solution, the LANParty UT Ultra-D.  Many have been anxious for the release of the board because DFI's reputation for overclocking is growing rapidly.  The main attraction of the Ultra-D would be the great VDIMM access.  Allowing as high as 4v to memory, the Ultra-D seems to be the best overclocking solution possible.  Will it be true?  We've reviewed Abit's gaming board, the Fatal1ty AN8, and it was able to overclock extremely well.  So now the rivaling companies go head to head here at InsaneTek, with performance, overclocking, and features all put to the test to see which board is better.
