EVGA has started to branch out into product areas beyond just graphics cards. Motherboards are not new to the company, but EVGA did show us its own custom designed nForce 780i SLI based board - aptly called the nForce 780i SLI FTW (yes, FTW stands for what you think it stands for). EVGA promises better overclocking headroom with its own 780i compared to the NVIDIA reference board that it also sells

Looks like it's got 8-phase power design in addition to hybrid cooling solution for the north bridge.

That Northbridge cooler is the size of a small CPU cooler... Ludicrous.

Foxconn make most bits and pieces for 775 motherboards. If you check a lot of ZIF sockets are made by Foxconn.

looks pretty much the same, but i suppose there are some more interesting features like the above said 8phase power

Looks like the northbridge is water-cooled ready

Ah, I see. I thought they were putting their name on a Foxconn board :D

Foxconn make the nvidia reference boards, so it is possible it IS a foxconn board. ::D:

I'm waiting for Hybrid SLI before I purchase another motherboard. It's nice to see an NVIDIA partner branch away from reference designs a bit though.

That is the 780i FTW...

It will have 8 phase, solid caps and 8 SATA... some more stuff coming soon too :D

Striker II Formula 780 FTmfW :D

I just wish they'd hurry the **** up and send it to me :o

I've ordered a Q6600 G0 to go with it too :D :D

well, on the site of evga, there is already a new BIOS released for the 780i

That bios was released the day after Christmas and only made one change, which was to fix the power led not working.

More flexible voltage/OC settings.

So jAkUp, are you getting one of these mobos? If so when?

SECOND THAT ...you will find that almost all vendors use foxconn components somewhere on there motherboards and vga's for that matter, they may not make the best boards but evidently they make good components that are used to make good boards...asus, gigabyte, dfi, msi etc.......
