If you want, jcrox, you can give the board I have a try. I've had it installed for over a month now and it's running fine.

It's not perfect, but it's a lot more stable than the 680is I had were. Even on a beta bios. It has the 5-series southbridge on it, so you don't have to deal with the whole 6-series southbridge circus. Runs a lot cooler. Around 40-45C, on average.

680is can go to hell as far as I'm concerned. I honestly wish I had one of those junkyard machines where I could shape every dead 680i board in the shape of a gigantic cube and drop it with a crane right on Nvidia's doorstep. I'm sure it would dwarf their headquarters.
