    yes.

    We're talking about two things, i think.

    I've been talking about how while they havent changed the mobo end, the other end has.

    I find it funny how that people bitch about Asus not bringing anything new to the scene and when they do people bitch about other stupid little things. Like a 7th slot you probably wont use, a floppy and IDE connector you can just ignore and an eSATA port that dosent really matter because most external enclosures come with a bracket. Gee, people cant be happy.

    Im glad to see SATA III and USB 3.0 out there finally. Way to go Asus.

    Well:

    1. The CPU was given to me, i payed nothing.

    2. The ''SE'' versions of the 680i's were designed specifically for C2D OCing only, it even says on the damn box it can't OC Quads.Heres a review of it from the Tiger direct guys explaining what im talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22fYUuaRREI

    3. I personally don't feel the need to OC, my PC is running fine the way it is, maybe i will give it a try whenever i decide to get a better mobo/CPU/HSF, but as of now i am happy with the speeds everything is at. As a big gamer, i am mostly focused on getting rid of my 8600 GTS for something better(more likely a GTX 260).


    ;)

    1. well you shoulda sold it and got a 45nm CPU that would OC on that board :D (and some beer ;) )

    2. it cant OC quads by FSB, noone said anything about raising the multi :D

    3. cant argue that. video card is by far the bottleneck, not your CPU. dont forget to get an x64 OS when you upgrade the video card, you're already pushing past the 4GB limit as it is.

    Agreed - I'm betting that Asus is only including these features so they can boast about them on their motherboard boxes. "WE HAVE SATA 3 AND USB 3! (Although you can't use them because there's no devices that support them.)"

    Regarding nForce 680i overclocking, some boards (like my MSI) don't like the 45nm chips as well as quads, so you're pretty much limited to dual-core 65nm if you want to overclock...

    USB 3.0 and sata 3.0 devices will hit soon enough. Due to backwards compatibility, there is nothing stopping them launching the products immediately and slapping "TWICE AS FAST!*" all over the boxes.

    No, we can't be happy. Only thru letting them know what we are dissatisfied with, do we stand a chance of getting exactly what we are after.

    The 7th expansion slot does matter to me, because that means I have more layout flexibility at my disposal, even though I don't actually fill all 7 slots simultaneously.

    i've filled 6 of the 7 slots in my system :) i need all 7


    Floppy needs to go away, IDE can too. They can always include a sata to IDE adaptor for the first generation of boards with no IDE.

    In this news info
    I said,,, I was just wondering why the word XTREME is nowhere to be seen on the box, I would have liked to see Asus P6X58 XTREME or something like that.
    Maybe they do listen to us.

    "Xtreme Design", "Xtreme Phase" so to be specific, is an ASUS design and component technology. It's similar to "Ultra Durable" from Gigabyte. So when an ASUS SKU sports "Xtreme Design", it will be printed somewhere on the box, not part of the product name as such.

    Lol figures you cought my post. :roll:

    my point though is you cant have everything you want on a board. Or else id be screaming for a DFI Lanparty board with an AMD 8** chipset, nForce 200 chip, black PCB with hot pink UV slots. Ooooo teh sexyness :laugh::eek:

    OH and an AM3 quad that supports DDR3 2000 natively.
