The AcceleroX1 is my GPU cooler. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186001
I don't think you can combine coolers...

If your Certain on getting an SLI setup in the near future then the nForce 680i SLI is for you.. Though the P5W64 WS Pro as Mikey said is the board for you.

do you mean as in both boards are SLi enabled, but the 680i is a better choice based on SLi terms? how about CPU OC'ing?

can i say, putting it simply, CPU OC'ing ability in decreasing order (best first) : P965 chipsets (DS3/DQ6/P5B) > 680i chipsets > P5W64 WS Professional > P5W DH Deluxe ? and only 680i & P5W64 WS Pro supports SLi fully?

furthermore, is there a significant advantage of mobos using solid capacitors over normal capacitors?

what if now is single card solution, but unsure whether getting SLi in the future (50:50 chance of going single or SLi in next 3 yrs)? what mobo then is recommended?

For OCing wise, it's
p965 > P5W64 WS Pro > 680i SLI > DH Deluxe.
The 680i runs SLi natively, the P5W64 WS Pro and the P5W DH Deluxe run it on hacked drivers. If your going SLI, get the 680i, if your not going SLI, get the P965 boards.

do you people think there is anything better than the zalman cnps9700 led? chiu2000 said the scythe infinty is too heavy for the mobo, and tunic tower is overkill. any comments?
