I am not sure what mine is, as I'm not home right now nor did I order it at all, but I doubt they'd want to ship me another one anyways as this one was free. I have a feeling they were trying to purge their stock of poor C2Q boards by having this contest, and therefore don't want to have to take one back and replace it. I emailed their CS dept just to explain the situation (not necessarily asking for them to send me a new one) just to get the facts on what I can do. Hopefully I'll hear back soon with some sort of good news.
The board you got is one of the first versions released. It's a great board for the C2D's but, for the Quads I would huck it and try and get a P5K like others suggested. The board had issues with OC'ing the Quad Cores, they changed some stuff and out came the NF68-A1/T1. They just re-badged the old boards and called them "SE", specially made for the C2D
Although this board can overclock the quads I heard the the new boards have the nvidia 570 SB, while the older ones had the 590. I guess the 570 clocks better with the quads? I think the main problem people were complaining about was the lack of FSB, most people I saw were hitting a wall at 380'ish.
Also, the EVGA's still have some issues with memory burning up. I would personally try and get some money out of it and get into another board, just my
