After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Included Features

    DFI has 3 lines of "performance" oriented motherboards including LanParty, LanParty UT, and Infinity. With each comes a different set of included goodies, the UT line comes with the bare essentials, in this case being 1x PATA connector, 1x Floppy, 2x SATA + power, back panel cover, SLI bridge and drivers and documentation.
    The Karajan audio module is found on many DFI motherboards and is an efficient way to provide better onboard sound or to give you the ability to completely remove sound from the system. We here at Ninjalane have never been fans of onboard audio however given a choice the Karajan audio option is a healthy alternative. wink smile The module features the RealTek ALC885 8 Channel sound decoder and has been certified as Vista ready.
