    DFI LanParty UT NF3 250GB - Layout


    (Page 5 of 14 )

    This is always one of my favorite parts of a review. I'm constantly shoving stuff in and out of my case, and I don't have one of these wonderful motherboard trays to make life easier. So for myself, layout is important. And DFI pretty much has listened to all my criticisms, and pulled off quite an impressive setup. As per usual, let's start at the top. 

    Looking at the socket, there's room around for all socket 754/939/940 coolers I can think of. The only potential problem is the P4 12V power connector, but it seems to be placed in this position on many A64 boards recently, with no known conflicts I've heard of. Just be careful with that wire and fans on those "tower" air coolers. You can also see the three phase voltage regulation module (VRM) immediately above the 12V connector. With all the mosfets crowded in amongst the capacitors and inductors it'll be difficult to cover them with heatsinks, but not impossible. To the right of the socket, you can see the DIMM slots. They are nearly at the top of the board, but to normally get them out of the way of the AGP slot they'd have to be against the top edge of the board. Along the right hand edge, that's where you find the ATX power connector, as well as the floppy and PATA connectors. This is great for cable management, and hence case air flow.
