DFI Blood Iron P45-T2RS Elite Motherboard Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have posted a review of one of DFI's new budget-oriented LanParty BI series motherboards, the Blood Iron P45-T2RS Elite.
Let's see what they had to say:
"So what are you missing out on by buying a $100 USD motherboard? Well the main thing is CrossFire capability. However, DFI also makes a Lanparty BI P45-T2RS Elite with two PCI-E slots for your CrossFire needs for only a few dollars more. If we were out shopping for a budget board, we would likely grab the CrossFire version. A couple other things we like that the board doesnt have are on-board power and reset switches and a Firewire port. Again though, these features are available on higher-end DFI boards.
To sum this all up, the features on this board work great and the little DFI extras like CMOS Reloaded and the Auto Boost System are icing on the cake. The Elite overclocked quite well and we were able to max out our chip with next to no headaches. Not to mention the fact that we didn't reach the FSB limit of the board even at 625Mhz and you can see why we like this little powerhouse so much. For those looking for a budget board that will be a decent overclocker, DFIs Lanparty BI P45-T2RS Elite should be perfect. For those looking for CrossFire and a box full of extras, some higher end boards would probably be a better fit.
This motherboard does seem like it provides some solid Bang for the Buck, but I can't find it for sale anywhere in Europe or North America.
