My 680i works great, and I own a 1klw psu....lol I see the fixes EVGA did as a great reason to buy the board. Support! They listened and addressed the problems. The are continually working on drivers, and are determined to make the board the best it can be. It is not for everyone, but the original post on here did imply that the board is inherintly broken and a junk product. Just makes me laugh. Mine kicks ***, as does the rest of my equipment, should I feel dumb because I can afford this stuff? Last time I checked this was the Building, Buying, or Upgrading High Performance PC Systems forum. Not one person over at xtremesystems.org once said to me "Dude, that psu is so overkill, what a waste of money!" I've heard it multiple times from people on here. I've said it before....quit hating. The 680i is a great board, and almost everyone that is WAY into performance comps over at XS.org owns this board. These are the guys that test OC's for publications. Why would they buy a junk board that has so many problems? O, they wouldn't, that is correct.
