    The top version of the 680 I got has six holes in it for the "pins" where I had the thought of soldering in a GPU 6-pin for that ends connectivity. In reality the controls are setup for LN2 clocking on the cards, but I like toys! That an a very cold Ohio winter and I may tinker around with it a bit.

    I think there is a guide on K1ngp1n's site for how to plug it in to the board...but I wondered about that since the whole EVGA/nVidia non-evBOT stuff...

    Doesn't seem that tough to match the connections between the two, just a mater of if I want to solder things or use the pins. I got plenty of time till it gets that cold to read up on it from there or at Asus.

    In reality, you know me, and I bought Asus of all things. I just figured if I went for the top tier I wouldn't have the issues I had with their mid range products. All the extra goodies just give me room to tinker when I have the time and keep me interested in it longer.

    Meh. If anything, just immature BIOS might be an issue for ya really, ASUS is doing pretty good. Actually all Intel boards are pretty good right now, no matter what brand.


    Not everyone likes their software.

    I'm not a huge software guy anyways, the basics work for me. As long as it all boots and runs, I don't see how I can really be disappointed with it. Has to be a solid leap over my stock P55 rig :roll:

    Its just a little bit too dark to properly see your mouse, and the desktop kind of shows the black and white too obvious, but I really like this idea :)
