    Well at least the PWM and NB/SB are separated. I don't know if cooling the X58 chipset and PCIe controller will yield anything but the option will be much easier this round. No more 50 pound chunk of metal to remove

    Its a nice price yes I dont like the northbridge cooler which is a recycled design from the 790i all other comments im waiting for results but judging by the logos and relationships I wouldnt be surprised if nvidia cards perform better on this mobo then ATI I love EVGA great service and warranty I might Grab this board its between this and rampage 2 extreme question is who has had good luck with nvidia chipsets well asus especially rampage series but the price will be high ultimately I will wait and see how they perform I really hope EVGA has a winner.

    I was almost interested in buying an EVGA board this time, if it wasnt for the Nvidia propaganda and color scheme.
    Intel I7 980 + Phanteks PH-TC14PE Red, Asus Rampage III Extreme, 12 GB Geil Ultra Series
    SLI MSI GTX 680 power edition, Creative X-Fi Titanium HD, 2x4 Tb Seagate HDD, 128 Gb Crucial M4, 512 Gb Crucial M4
    Gigabyte M8000X, Microsoft Sidewinder X4, Antec P182, Acer G24, Windows 7 Professional, XFX Proseries 850w XXX

    Keeping my mobo + CPU till they are obsolete

    LMAO...............ok let me set you straight there, you seem to be confused.

    1 - 680i was an nvidia chipset, designed by nvidia, made by foxconn
    2 - eVGA has the best customer service of anyone, no one in the industry can compare
    3 - eVGA did not design or manufacture the 680i, they were the distributor.
    4 - eVGA now designs their own board, they have hired old staff from epox to work on them, including the FTW boards.

    OMG that is so awesome!

    Oh yeah to add to GAR's points, this is an Intel chipset of course, not nVidia aka Mr Moody

    This board is going to be totally different when it comes to comparing it with older eVGA boards.
    Im pretty sure you will not see the x58 section on the eVGA forums plagued with memory related problems

    I've seen some pretty good results from BFG lately, but generally, your points are good.


    This board has no NF200, correct?

    So still 16x 8x 8x tri-SLI? (though it doesn't seem to matter)

    About time I cannot believe they did not go bankrupt or get discredited selling those 680i lemons.

    Actually, I was surpised when I read that because they are suppose to support nvidia all the way. Now that makes me think that the FTW edition might be the one with NF200 + improved cooling solution.

    True.

    I like evga as a company, I didn't like my 680i's but at least EVGA replaced my 680i 5 times without asking a single question

    jakup care to explain what exactly "xtreme cooling mode" does ?

    from customer's point of view tis probably is cool. but from business it's very lame. If the company does not care why their product misbehaves they will never be able to fix the original problem - thus customer will still complain on same issue over and over again.

    read the side of the BIOS screen

    mode 1 = <0C
    mode 2 = <-50c

    id like to know more than just some random numbers tbh. What exactly this setting does on low level hardware and how both affect performance/stability/longelivity
    then again this is something new...at least by the looks of it

    true, my guess would be that it offsets the DTS on cpu to avoid coldbug, maybe.... I also would like to know the real reason

    I'd wager it's similar to BlackOps' cold bug fix? Bleeds miniscule current into cpu before post cycle? maybe?

    Given the humongous NB heatsinks in x58 boards it seems like we'll have one hot potato on our hands...maybe?

    Which is strange, consider that the MCH is gone.

    I was hoping to get away with not using water on my chipset this time around.

    I wish they would have painted the PCI slots black & green too.
