i have the EVGA 680i SLI A1 board (evga's flagship) and i absolutely love it. great overclocking ability. comes with heatpipes and sinks for the NB and SB but i took it off to WC my NB and stuck their replacement SB fan on. overall its a very solid board and i have no qualms with it

Enjoyed my Evga 680i AR when I had it. The Asus P5N32-E SLI 680i was good but you really need an active NB cooler.

The Evga 680i will hit 450mhz FSB stock and I'm unsure of what you can get the Asus with stock heat pipes to. I never ran the Asus without NB water cooling from day one.

Don't overlook the DFI i680 esp with a QX onboard
