    EVGA 680i revision.

    Theres a later revision of the EVGA 680i boards, it was released on the 05/03/07 and it aparently fixes some of the issues that the earlier boards have had with quad core etc.

    Could someone confirm if you now have the later revision in stock please, it would save an unneeded RMA.

    From the EVGA forum.

    " Update: 3-1-2007
    To clear things up for everyone asking how you can tell the difference with the EVGA 680i SLI boards with the fix for the Intel Quad Core Processor; EVGA will be doing a small change to its part number for this particular SKU.

    EVGA will modify the last digit of its part number to reflect this change

    122-CK-NF68-AR will be replaced with 122-CK-NF68-A1
    122-CK-NF68-TR will be replaced with 122-CK-NF68-T1

    EVGA will also be making these available to online etailers and retailers for customers purchasing on March 5th.

    Thank you,

    That is the LT motherboard something else.

    I just got the non LT version today and I'm extremely irate. Not only have they sent me the old revision, but the box had been unsealed and various cables etc are missing.

    I simply can't believe they have sent me a 2nd hand product missing parts. The fact it has the old faulty board shows that it is old stock too. Well thats just ruined my weekend of pc building, never mind the fact they also didn't put my power supply on the order (done over the phone) so I've already had to go into town to buy one.

    When I placed my order for this item on Thursday morning it was listed at the NF68-A1 and described as so. Since then they've reduced the price of it and changed the description to show it as the LT version but the model number still shows as NF68-A1.

    I've emailed Scan to get some clarification on which version they're actually selling and to find out when they expect stock. I'll post on here once I've had a reply.

    When I put the link above it was the A1 revision not the LT. If your not going quad core you shouldnt have any problems as long as you update your bios.

    Good luck with getting a reply neway.

    Well apart from it being second hand and missing 70% of the cabling/backplates etc, and not working with non USB keyboards you mean? Anyway I plan to get quad core when it goes mainstream.

    Its going straight back...


    Edit:

    The plot thickens... See their page here :

    www scan co uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=491417

    They state they ship the AR board (although A1 is the new fixed one). Actually they shipped me a TR board which doesn't explain it being opened, but does explain the lack of cables and back plates. See here :

    www evga com/support/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=57729

    So apart from it being opened, it seems I do have the parts I should, but they've sent me the Lite version despite having advertised the full fat version.


    So anyone found a retailer with the revised boards that will ship what you order?

    They've been pretty good at replying to me recently but that's when I have been adding more items to the order. I'm going to cancel the motherboard now as I've managed to source one from elsewhere.
