Default C55 vs 680i

Im looking at the Asus P5N32-E SLI NF680i SLI, and Asus P5N32-E SLI PLUS C55, Both the exact same price.
I was looking to get a 650i because of the better FSB overclock (and the price)

But if the C55 above is superior I dont mind paying the extra and foregoing the pleasure of adding my own nb/sb cooling bodge job.

Any Clue?

TUT Looks like im suffering from misinformation again ,stupid SCAN technical descriptions.

This just added to my confusion

What the hell are these people playing at ????

Don't get the Plus version, it's a 650i/570i mix and match. Asus went back to older tech to solve the vdrop problem.

Was that the reason i just got my P5N32-E SLi today still playing around with it at the moment very happy with it. got a 1.4GHz overclock out of my E4300. I too had a hard choice between the P5N32-E and the P5N32-E Plus but i ended with with the none plus board due to little information on the Plus.

If I had a choice I'd probably go with the eVGA board. But here in Asia, only Asus and Inno3D have 680i boards.

Yeah the 0702 is beta. Just wait for them to release newer one. BTW, what RAM are you using?

Any data transfer will go through the memory? so if its overclocked too much the data will be befunkled. I have trouble installing stuff if I push my memory too hard, Seems to be the first noticeable thing to fail.

Well the memory is locked at 800MHz have been running tests 800MHz FSB to 900MHz is fine anything more and memtest bring up tens of thousands of errors. so not a SATA issue. Ans also i have tried lower memory timings also. might try playing with the voltage as it's allover the place for everything.
