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

    With any great overclocking experience comes an extreme cooling solution. Typically we choose water to keep things cool but as any watercooling user will know the chipset cooling options are limited at best. As the DFI LAN Party UT NF680I LT SLI-T2R has been specifically designed with overclocking in mind a better cooling solution had to be devised. The included Northbridge cooler is made from aluminum with a copper base. The 2 heatpipes originate from there and lead up to a LANParty branded radiator. The clips you see are for connecting a 60x60x15mm fan for additional cooling.
    Installation is simple and DFI has even included the thermal paste. The Southbridge cooler is made completely from copper and features a bonded thin fin design.
