DFI announced a new B revision of their LANParty motherboards : The LANParty NFII Ultra B and LANParty PRO875B

The LANParty NFII Ultra B his new features are dual Gigabit LAN and 10/100 Ethernet, extra space around the AGP slot, additional south bridge heat sink, mounting holes around the CPU for water cooling and the latest Silicon Image 4-channel Serial ATA controller. LANParty NFII Ultra B is the first in the series to offer support for 4-channel Serial ATA and Serial ATA RAID (0,1,0+1).
For the overclockers and the power users, LANParty NFII Ultra B features CMOS Reloaded technology with 2 sets of CMOS under each BIOS setting. With CMOS Reloaded, for the first time the users can now save the overclocked settings without having to record manually, customize by naming each CMOS configuration, and load the various CMOS configurations using hot keys on the keyboard. This DFI patented technology automates overclocking and allows each CMOS configuration to be saved with a different operating system, thus making today's PCs truly versatile. Further to make it the ultimate nForce2 enthusiasts' motherboard, improvements were made to its overclockability.

First in the market, LANParty NFII Ultra B features DRAM voltage from 2.6V to 3.3V (0.1V step), complete CPU ratio control from 5X to 22X and chipset voltage from 1.6V to 1.9V. Additional DRAM timing control was also implemented to enable refresh cycle time control, row cycle time control, RAS-to-CAS write delay time control, SuperBypass control, and DIMM driving strength and signal slew rate control. Tested with the latest AMD AthlonXP 3200+ processor, ATI Radeon 9800 PRO video card and 512MB PC4000 memory, this revision delivers an unsurpassable 3Dmark2001 score of 18915.
The LANParty PRO875B also has a few new features : Serial ATA RAID and CMOS reloaded technology for more flexible overclocking. Another new thing is the additional Green UV colour, it used to be only orange but this one features green and orange.
