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

    LanParty UT boards do not come with a huge collection of accessories though you do get enough parts to be up and running right out of the box.

    Included in the box you get:
    quick install manual, full users manual, driver disk, ATX backplate, jumpers, Bernstein audio connector cable, and 2x CrossFire bridge interconnects
    Drive cables include:
    1x rounded IDE, 4x SATA, floppy, and 2x SATA power cables.
    DFI has also updated the removable audio module to the Bernstein style. This add-on sound board features many of the same basic connections found on the Karajan audio module and is designed for easy access and installation. You will lose an available PCI slot but gain an onboard "off board" audio module. I suspect the upgrade came as a partial result of the elaborate motherboard cooling method but also affords you more audio possibilities.

    The audio module even supports an isolated VoIP card so you can Skype with your friends over the internet.
