Looks good but one hand picked sample might give customers false hope - this could backfire on Abit. If, however, all the boards are like this then guess what my next board might be.
i really wish they would stop using these damn heat pipes on mobo's, if you have a case with the mobo upside down these boards run so dam hot. my next upgrade i am going to have to water cool it.
Sean at abit UK tested this on an AW9D-MAX & apparently it made about 0.5C difference.
nVidia says that the reference 680is are fine to run inverted.
So, maybe they've all improved the design of their heatpipes?
