WOW....that says alot. Apprently Newegg drops it due to "customer issues." Word has it that Newegg dropped until "the product is improved."

interesting eh?

From the looks of all the reference 680i boards along with the Abit and Asus..... it would seem that Nvidia has fallen short with the 680i.

There are small pockets of successful 680i owners, but HUGE groups of people with non-working 680i boards.


terrible.

HardOCP just did an article listing the problems the 680i has.The 650i looks like a good buy for the buyer wanting SLI and wanting to do some solid overclocking,at least if one grabs the Asus solution.

imo they missed their mark with the 680i

so far numberous blue screens and hangs while detcting hard drives are the worst

the bios looks awesome... to bad i cant play more then 5 minutes of knights of the old republic II before i blue screen/crash

being fast has its wonderful advantages, but right now, id take my old fx-55 + dfi nforce 4 over my current system; at least it was rock solid stable

just because Asus made a crappy version, doesnt mean that nvidia dropped the ball.

i havent heard that many ppl complain about the 680i.

its not the 680i as a whole, its just that ASUS 680i is the one having issues.

^The Asus 680i isn't the only one w/ issues. A lot of the eVGA's are crap too because of the overheating southbridge. My MCP was idling at 80C until it just burned itself completely out, and yes, I even had the little fan installed on the northbridge heatsink. I even went so far as to remove the southbridge heatsink and apply some fresh thermal compound. Nada, didn't help temps a bit. It went kaput one week later.

Heh, but it is also a lot of the same people posting over and over and some in the thread saying they don't have problems and some trying to help those with problems. Seems pretty typical of any new hardware from what I saw.

I reviewed many forums before diving into Core Duo. I actually had the eVGA 680i on order but quickly canceled. You can't tell me the 680i has normal feedback because in my opinion the problems are excessive.

I have yet to see anywhere near the issues with the P5B (Intel chipset).

EDIT: It may be an assembly issue with vendors, or a hardware issue with the 680i but there is no doubt the 680i has problems.
