EVGA 650i Ultra / EVGA 650i Ultra LITE - what's the diff?

Observe:

* EVGA 650i Ultra LITE (@ Extreme PC) - $170.00AUD
* EVGA 650i Ultra (@ Extreme PC) - $199.00AUD

* EVGA 650i Ultra LITE or T1 @ EVGA.com
* EVGA 650i Ultra or A1 @ EVGA.com

The technical specifications are identical, the board size is identical, even the board layout is the same..

what the hell?

I had a P5N-E SLI but it died (RIP), I was very happy with the 650i chipset but was never ever going to go SLI, so i figure i'll go down to the 650i Ultra due to it's value. Financial reasons are stopping me from spending more lol..

I've heard lots of good things about EVGA but there's also a 650i Ultra in the Albatron for $10 less than EVGAs 650i Ultra LITE

what do you recon?

I've used the 650i Ultra (non-LITE) on a few builds and it has been a rock stable platform, even for OCing an E6420 all the way to 2.8 on stock voltages across the board! I've been VERY impressed with this board. It's a plain green PCB but it still looks nice. Here's one of my builds for a client using this board and an EVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2x1GB G.Skill DDR2-800(F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ).

Sounds good to me. I think i'll stick with the NON-LITE.

Thanks for the reply, but does anyone know the difference?

Also i can't find anywhere the supported memory voltages, i had a problem on my P5N-E SLI - it only supported 1.9V - 2.4V memory, and my ADATA DDR2-800MHz is stock 1.8V...

setting the memory to 1.9V wasn't a problem but it's something i'd rather not disturb.
