P5N32-E SLI plus... a tale of two chipsets?

I was really perplexed when I first spotted this board, it seemed to good to be true, 40 dollars less than the P5N32-E SLI and with solid aluminum electrolyte capacitors too(instead of the P5N32-E SLI's config mixing in liquid electrolyte capacitors as well). Upon digging further I unearthed several differening descriptions of said motherboard...

??? which is it 650i or 680i??? I am leaning towards the evga 680i; but if this asus P5N32-E SLI plus is a 680i I would most likely purchase it instead.

  1. NVM it seems chiefvalue and newegg have changed the description and it is now listed as 650i :cry: ... Oh well
  2. I have it,very good and stable board
  3. It is actually a hybrid. With 650i on the NB and 590 on the SB....Mixing the old tech with the new I guess has seriously reduced compatibility/stability issues. It is a stripped-down Striker Extreme with the same solid stat capacitors, no mixing.
