Is the link to the board. People keep complaining that the board will die in a month of use, because the coolets suck on it. Is this the case? I really dont want to go removing stuff to put as5 on it when it should be ready stock :\\
Just some insight on the board will be great Also will the gskill pc 800 hz's work in this board?

There were some issues in the past with the evga 680i board but since the A1 not many issues. I bought mine at microcenter 5 months ago and it has been flawless though I did RMA it to udate to the newest revision at the time but still like I said nothing has been wrong. I have read that there were issues with RAM getting killed due to a bug in the bios that feed it to much volts but that problem seems to be gone. I think it's a great board and evga has the best warranty on all their gear. I would recomend this board to everyone.
I would also tell you to go to the evga website and read through thier forums about what issues or not others have.
EDIT********************
Here are some links with paticular issues the this board had and a good oc guide for the board...
