the 680i LT is a trimmed down version of the A1... it has less USB Ports, less Solid Capacitors...

So, for 20 bucks less the non-lt is a better deal?

Yikes I'm confused..

Over clocking a quad go with the 680i sli? or go with the a1 version of the 680i LT sli?

From my readings and from suggestions here, I was recommended to get the a1 680 LT sli...

Anyway, not going to kill it OCing so,... But anyway ordered the LT-a1

Yha there is... Ones like $240 and the T1 is like $190. The T1 doesn't work well with quads.

A1
T1

But either way, I've hopefully got it changed to the full version....

I really need to read stuff better.

Thanks for your info.
