Just got my eVGA 680i SE

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just got my shiny new eVGA 680i SE board from kdbolt. I love the feel of a quality motherboard, and this most certainly is one. I can't wait for my E4300 and HZs so I can fire this baby up.

Wow i am debating between these 2 motherboards, exact same ones. Right now i am leaning towards ASUS. But recently people said they were having trouble with their ram, so i might go back to the EVGA.

I think the P5N32-SLI is a better board overall, but this is a very nice board and I got a killer deal on it... and I'm not a fan of Asus

I got the same SE board. All the boards are the same, except some, the Ax series come with "support" for quad core overclocking. I got the TR like you, the Tx are barebones boxes.

Mine's just sitting on my desk until I can scrape together the cash for a E2140 (upgrading to an E6750 when it's released) and RAM.

Maybe I'll take off the NB/SB heatsink and go to town with my Arctic Ceramique.

I got the same mobo in my system, everything is great except for the POST LED. One of the bars in the second little display for the second value doesnt light up. No big deal I guess. So now it reads F and a slightly messed up F for fully functional. Anyone know why or have this same problem?
