Default Re: lookin for some suggestions

Personly i would say yes avoid the 680i. The main problems of the chipset is heat. They are by far the hottest thing in the PC at present and this is where people get stability issues. Myself included, more so if you overclock. Going from a Vcore of 1.57v to 1.66v increases the power regulars by 25C!!!! Making them hit 101C!!!
