DFI has practically named all its motherboards with the LANParty moniker. While this may give some the impression that these boards belong in PCs which you lug to a LAN party, not all of the vendor's boards are micro-ATX versions. Of course, there's no stopping anyone from bringing a full tower to a LAN party either. However, when it comes to the AMD 785G chipset, DFI, like the other brands we have seen, has opted for a mATX form factor.
With the relatively capable Radeon HD 4200 graphics chipset integrated within, the AMD 785G is a slight upgrade over its 780G predecessor, bringing with it improved HD playback support and a newer Southbridge that adds the Advanced Clock Calibration (ACC) feature that improves CPU overclocking which was found initially on the AMD 790GX. Although the integrated graphics is entry level, install a more capable, discrete graphics card and voila! One gets a reasonably high-end, value gaming system and even with a Hybrid Graphics option should you choose to pair the integrated with an ATI GPU.
DFI's latest board in its Blood-Iron (BI) series, the LANParty BI 785G-M35 is hoping you have that same idea of building on the 785G chipset, by offering enthusiast-class features like its well-known Auto Boost System (ABS) overclocking utility on the mATX scene. Let's check out what DFI has in store:
