ASUS P5N32-E or Current board?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking about returning my eVGA 122-CK-NF63-TR motherboard for a refund and possibly getting a ASUS P5N32-E, which as far as I've researched it, seems to be a better board. One thing I don't like about the eVGA is the NB is really damn hot, and that stupid little fan is doing nothing but raising my CPU temps and video card temps. Does the NB run cooler on the ASUS? I also like the fact its expandable to 8GB.

Would this be a good choice? Not to mention I already have problems with the debug LED on this eVGA board.

EDIT: Oh and also, which P5N32-E would be better? nForce 680i or 650i?

NB still runs hot, I'm not sure comparatively how hot but I know mine is hot.
