Im looking for a little advice on one of these motherboards, who has one? what do they think of it? are they worth the money?

Also if you click the link below and read one of the two reviews, one person says "One point to watch is that this is the LT version and therefore does not support SLI mode in memory greater than 800mhz. You can still run SLI ready memory above 800mhz but it wont be SLI enabled".

What does this mean? is there any difference between SLi memory and dual channel memory? ... i was going to get 2GB or 800MHz memory to go with this board! will it run in dual channel?

Whats the difference between SLi & dual channel memory?

Here, straight from the manual:

SLI-Ready Memory
Use the page up and page down keys to scroll through the SLI-Ready Memory Options. The options are:

* Disabled
* CPUOC 0%
* CPUOC 1%
etc etc to CPUOC 5%
CPUOC MAX

When you select one of the CPUOC x% options, The FSB - Memory Clock mode is set to Unlinked and cannot be changed until SLI-Ready Memory is set to disable.

So...generic OC'ing.

I like my 680i LT just fine, it actually works... unlike the 1st 3 680i boards I bought. Had to kind a rig the NB fan though to keep it on the heat sink.... this Blue Orb 2 takes up a lot of space.

SLI memory is the biggest marketing gimmick. All it does is save you about 5 minutes teaking RAM timings. Big deal.

EDIT just found this: read it.

So when the person in the review said "One point to watch is that this is the LT version and therefore does not support SLI mode in memory greater than 800mhz"

Is this actually true or not?
