Default Nforce 680 boards

im thinking about upgrading to one of these boards.

what are the advantages/disadvantages of these boards?

does anyone own one? and how are they working?

so far ive only seen the Evga and ASUS boards, does anyone have links to other 680i boards whether they are out yet or not?

thanks in advanced

They came out like yesterday. You waited less than an hour to get mad about no one responding.

Calm down. Do the research yourself, that's why we have Google.

Does it really make a difference? I have an E6600 and it works just fine on my nForce 4 SLI 16X board. Plus they like just came out with the 500 series, which no one cared about either. No one cares about boards with ATI chipsets either.

well it matters because the nforce 570 only supported 8x by 8x sli. and the 590 didnt overclock as well as i had hoped.

so im hoping they fixed alll that with the new 680i boards.

and also if anyone has any info on the new ati chipsets please speak up beacause from my expreience int he past ati chipsets always sucked

The reviews I've rad say that the boards overclock great, and that NVIDIA nailed it this time... the new chips outperforms Intels top chips.

16x sli is overrated. Often times it's actually worse performance. Look it up sometime.
