    HEXUS.reviews :: eVGA nForce 680 SLI LGA775 motherboard

    The sum up: nForce 680i is a feature-rich, high-end core-logic set with outstanding out-of-the-box overclocking ability, great controlling software and, at least in this instance via eVGA, it'll be found on a well-designed board with a sweet layout.

    Looks a like a great board. Shame i dont have the money for a new build

    @yorkieben: Heatpipes only work one way up. So if you want to run it upside down you'll need to replace the cooling on the MCP with something like a HR-05 sli and maybe a standard HR-05 on the northbridge, presuming it'd fit.

    That's not quite right chuckskull. This uses a wick based heatpipe which will deliver similar performance inverted or normally installed since the heat will always travel to the colder part of the heatpipe.

    Word.

    (Edit: just realised, I don't like that "word". So, next time, I'll say "I agree".)
