know your stuff before you start rambling on about what you "heard"

edit* the P6N board is not known to be a good SLI board, many have switched to a 680i from those. apparantly alot of people have major complaints about them.
Yeah and keep in mind that the sli is only 8x.

ok... first of all... i never said the 680i's aren't good at overclocking... because you and i both know its not true.. i just said the Striker Extreme is hyped.... its better than a regular 680i board.. but the p35 smokes it in overclocking capability....
