I've been looking at the 680i chipset boards but not sure which one to get, I'm not too interested in overclocking so I guess that rules out the Striker Extreme but what about the rest of them?
Any advice would be welcome.
ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS is a great board. I purchased this board 6 months ago from newegg(open box $130free shipping) and it has been perfect.
BIOS 805, I use the e6750 at 3.0ghz-8mult(standard voltage) with a water bolck(load 32c), kingston pc6400 @ 886mhz-2.1v(4-4-4-12), evga 8800gts ac3 ko-core@620mhz, memory@945mhz with koolance waterblock(load 47c) . SB X-fi fatal1y Platinum Fatal1ty, and spectre DCLCD 24" display.
I plan on adding another evga 8800gts for SLI (this board has 2 TRUE 16x lanes), moving to a Quad Core and upgrading my cooling system.
This board will allow me to run the way I like until the new chipsets to settle in.
I push the games hard (crysis, cod modwar4, bioshock, mohair, etc..) and record/edit audio(adobe audition 1.5, sonar6 producer and many plugins). My temps, stability, upgrading, support, etc....this board rocks!!!
