After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com 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 Hardwareasylum.com
Two things you will notice right away with the LP UT P35 is the seemingly oversized heatpipe cooler that covers the North and South bridge chips along with the PWM onboard power supply. The color is a simple grey which we find to be very pleasing unlike some of the other guys that are using natural copper.
The next item is the color scheme, no more orange! When I asked DFI about this radical departure their response was simple.
"That's true that green and yellow is replaced the familiar orange. In fact, we use orange color for too long…No matter, what color it is, we hope we can bring users a "fresh" feeling of our product whenever we launch new model. "
We actually liked the orange color here at Ninjalane but they are right, it was time to change things up and bring something new to the table. The PCB is still black and features soft rounded corners.
