    EVGA Corporation announced the release of a new flagship gaming motherboard for Intel platform: nForce 780i SLI FTW with enhanced features for scalability in extreme overclocking and stability under high voltage load. EVGA nForce 780i SLI FTW offers features such as unique power management to provide clean and stable power under extreme high voltage load and all solid-state capacitors for extended durability as well as a proprietary hybrid cooling solution with a built-in water block that supports either liquid or air cooling. It also features 2 Gigabit Ethernets, 8-channel HD audio and 8x SATA II ports instead of 6 on the reference board. With three 16x PCI-Express slots and PCI-Express 2.0 support, nForce 780i SLI FTW has all the features a true gamer can ask for including support for the newest 45nm Intel microprocessors and 3-way SLI (Scalable Link Interface) allowing three similar graphics cards to operate in unison to boost graphics processing performance. nForce 780i SLI FTW comes with a limited lifetime warranty and is available through leading resellers.

    That would make for an incredibly hilarious error. I can only hope it performs poorly, and it is rebranded by the community as such. From a pure comedic stance anyways...

    'EVGA nForce 780i SLI FTW offers features such as unique power management to provide clean and stable power under extreme high voltage load and all solid-state capacitors for extended durability'

    What does extreme high voltage load mean? In Austalia High Voltage is deemed as any voltage above 1000V, doesn't sound right. :wtf:

    They mean amperage load, but most people are too stupid to understand electricity, so they say voltage. That's my guess or either their marketing guy is a total douche bag [​IMG]

    Why all the hatred on Nforce Chipsets and Evga? Didnt they make a kick ass 680i board?

    BTW, I love the FTW moniker. Seems like theyve been reading TPU and other PC forums WAAAAAAAY TO MUCH!

    "ATi QuadFire, gives you MOAR power!"

    I wonder what they think FTW stands for.

    The hatred is because the nForce mobos, with exception of a few, were plagued with bugs and OCing problems.

    Im happy with my EVGA 780i, who needs FTW, overclocking just kills your system faster and things stop working the way they ment to, overclocking is good but why overclock if your stock system can play any game thats out, just to get a benchmark score not worth it i say.

    you are most certainly welcome to that opinion. but... lol. this is an OC heavy community, so you're of a rare opinion around here :D

    most people tell me "why would you have a 3.6Ghz quad core for browsing forums, MSn etc?!?"

    well tahts easy... i dont :p i have heaps of systems, and my P3 laptop does the net stuff just fine.

    That kind of talk, sir, is not allowed :D

    O/cing correctly and within safe limits will hardly age your components comparative to the lifespan that you will ever use the product.

    Again, O/cing correctly does not yield any instability.

    O/cing is done not only for the fun of it, but also to SIGNIFICANTLY increase the performance (lots of virgins do it for synthetic benchies). For example, if I overclock an x2 3800+ to 2.8 GHz and a 7900GT to 650 MHz core and 1800 mem, then I have boosted performance considerably AND it didn't cost me a thing except for 2 aftermarket coolers that I would've bought anyway (run-on sentence? haha). I probably would get a 50% boost in framerate, plus I saved a literal ton of money not buying more expensive components.

    (Not really an actual system of mine, but I O/C whatever I can get my hands on haha)

    i must ask, if you arent an OCer why is your sig specs full of overclocking results in the benchmark field? (some for an 8800ultra which you dont have??)
