    So this board is really expensive and still only does 450Mhz FSB. Fark that. Count me in for RD600

    It's the same eVGA 680i. This mobo will choose cpu to over FSB 500+, but not of all cpu can run FSB 500+.

    Maybe Bios has some problems now.

    NCIX is selling for $400 CND

    I hope Asus get's off their ass and does something about the P5W and P5B bios and doesn't just abandon them.

    Andre, can you test something for me?

    the NB Voltage, does the striker go above 1.65 volts and still boot?
    I have the little brother of this board and am just learning the quicks of this board so far, and the 1 thing thats the most odd, is that theres up to 2.75 volts for the NB voltage, but nothing above 1.6 volts works.

    1.65V is still bot, but 32M is not stable. 1.6V worked perfect.

    450 is not max. I don't know why 680i is choosy for cpu.

    Unfortunately that seems to be asus style lately, making quantity boards NOT quality. I used to like Asus but their pos effort on the P5W pissed me off. I'm really hoping Abit can come through with their 680i version.

    680i only for SLI using.

    If you still use single card, I recommend that you go to buy 965 or 975 mobos.

    damn that sucks, i noticed your 12v line is hurting pretty bad too..asus should just add vdroop as one of its feature, they seem to like to do it the best..

    andre.

    try this.
    this board is definatly complicated and has a big learning curve, for me to get 500+ outta the board, took me about a hour of one setting after the other, trial and error.

    try this though...

    unlinked.
    2000 mhz.

    ram.
    800 mhz. (easiest... try higher if this works)

    set your NB Volts to 1.55.
    set your CPU HTT volts to 1.55.
    set your Vcore to whatever it takes your CPU to do 3.5 ghz.
    set SB volts to 1.65.
    set HT volts to 1.45.
    set LDT to 3x.
    set Vdimm and Cas to easy speeds, not OC speeds.
    do not leave TRC to manual, try 20 first, and then work your way down.

    save this to your spare OC Profile.
    if it doesnt work try to modify the settings alittle.

    getting 500 from the board isnt hard, it just takes alittle figuring out what voltage does what.

    like for me, the CPU HTT and 1.2 VHT volts are the most important so far.
    SB volts just seem to keep the videocard from blinking out...
