This new LANParty board from DFI, based on the Radeon 200 chipset comes with most of the slots done in bright yellow and orange, possibly a warning sign about the power of this board.  [H]ard|OCP managed to get the LANParty RDX200 CF-DR to boot up at a 300MHz FSB, though it wasn’t exactly stable.  Drop by and see how far it can be pushed before it starts to push back.
“The RDX200 CF-DR is one of DFI’s latest boards in their Athlon64 socket 939 line. This board features the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset, supporting all Athlon64 processors, DDR type DRAM modules operating in Dual Channel mode at speeds up to 400MHz officially, and dual ATI PCI Express x16 video cards operating in x8 CrossFire mode. The RDX200 CF-DR is a feature complete solution, with a minimum number of components necessary for a fully operational system including an Athlon64 type CPU, DDR memory, drives, and a PSU. DFI integrated the following components in to the board’s design: 2 IDE ATA-133 ports and 4 SATA ports (RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and 5 capable) on the ATI controller; 4 SATA ports (RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and 5 capable) on the Silicon Image controller; 8 USB 2.0 capable ports (6 in rear panel, and 6 onboard header supporting 2 ports each); 2 IEEE 1394 ports (1 in rear panel, and 1 onboard header supporting 1 port each); 1 Marvell Yukon PCI Express based Gigabit Ethernet port and 1 Marvell Yukon PCI based Gigabit Ethernet port in rear panel; Realtek 8-channel High Definition audio codec featuring S/PDIF RCA input and output ports; and PS/2 port support in the rear panel.”
