On a note with memory, compared to running at stock timings, how much better is the performance with the nice tight timings you were testing with?
Don't you need two for a pair of GX7950 GX2s in Quad SLi?
Why would you want two GX2s not DX10 cards? And for that matter: why quad sli??
I agree absolutely, you'd be mental to buy GX2s now, but if you have a pair, you need two bridges for quad sli, so I guess that is why some manufacturers include them in the bundle, so as not to be accused of missing ANYTHING out!!
you just got quoted for that
You need some [ s ] tags for the lawnmower bit
ah thx long time since i last used html codes
Nice looking board - sounds like it fell a whisker short from greatness tbh.
Any idea when/if you'll have a DFI LP 680i LT? Looks like an awesome board...
Why can't motherboard manufacturers make decent software? It's always horrible.
Still, if you want to mess about with your BIOS in windows then I suppose you deserve to be subjected to awful software.
What's about that #14?
Also, if SLI is a two VGAs system why having that #3 on 680i motherboards?
PS: I was always curious about those two things for some time already.
14 is the hex display
#3 is a third PCI-E slot, which has 8 lanes rather than 16 for the other two. You could use the third slot for a RAID controller, a third graphics card (in future) to handle physics calculations, or any PCI-E x1 device like a soundcard or TV capture card.
The 7900 GX2 requires two, but 7950 GX2 quad SLI requires one.
Looks pretty good. I'm really not too keen on chipset fans, though.
Yeah I know ( ). But what's the info it displays? Temps? Post? What?
Thx for the info.
Diagnostic codes on POST.
I got as far as the bit about the noise of the fans and lost interest. I'm not totally sold on heatpipes all over the board either but I like my systems to be reasonably quiet. I think Foxconn has great potential but this board needs a little more work before I'd buy one.
the feature list says PCI Experss not Express
Looks like a decent board, and im glad its got the 2 marvell LAN chips as my Nvidia one is complete ar$e
