Although my boards box says Nvidia Nforce 680i chipset, isn't it actually a 650i? I'm a bit confused for some reason.

Is the OP post in this thread still up to date? I am looking at getting a new board but noticed that the OP is 2006 updated for 2007 and we are now a good part into 2008....

Yes, It's a 650i paired with a 570 in a "hybrid chipset". SLI Performance is equitable to some 680i boards, but I was a little disappointed with mine temp and OC wise.

the OP is a little out of date. I know wowza and he just doesn't have as much time anymore as he used to...but someone else should take a stab at a similar review with the newer mobos/chipsets.
post #120 of 141

CPU:c2d E8500
+cooler:Scythe Mugen ''Infinity"
GPU:HD 4870 X2
