yeah, the heatsink on the evga board is huge. I think it can handle it. Oh well, a coin will decide my fate. I will update you guys this afternoon.

wow a new heat sink took them 1 and a half years to develop? thats really lame, the xfx board has the same heat sink as the evga one. x38 is way better then a 780i.

have you actually had a 680i or do you just go by what you read on the internet? because the only people who ever have a problem with the 680i are the people who have never owned one, or people who read about it on the internet....i NEVER had one single problem from my 680i

My coin toss said the 780i. So 780i it is. I will report if I have any problems. But I am going to go by mgcook. He owned the 680i. If it has problems, I will sell it and pick up a new board. thanks for all the input though`

SLi or crossfire?

You might be able to find hacked 8 series for crossfire boards.

If youve got an nVidia card, I would go with a nice P35 board, I just dont think that dual card solutions are woth it TBH.

agreed here, i've never really had any hardware problems w/ my 680i, other than that particular model of asus.... just doesnt like overclocking w/ quads.. but other than that.. even if i put out insane voltage... never once have i had a problem

and i've been reading wonders on xtremesystems about these 780i's and people are getting pretty high clocks on it

and my new 28 inch monitor is amazing.. i just had to say it!

and i'm still eaggerly awaiting the fedex man
