    if you dont plan to go SLI then forget the 680i..
    Commando is your best choice if you dont want to go to P35.

    Nice! I will be happy if I can bench at 4Gig stable and run her at 3.8Gig 24/7 on no more than 1.45V. Is it true that these G0 steppings are reporting incorrect Delta > TJunction temps in coretemps do you know?

    don't think the asus p5n-e sli can support 1333 front side bus reading this http://event.asus.com/mb/fsb1333/
    i no the Asus P5N32-E SLI can the Asus P5N32-E SLI is just a Asus striker with out the addons so the oc is a bit smaller but woulded think by much ill go with the 680i chipset the Asus Commando is a good board as well but i think the oc is a bit small than the 680i chipsets

    It does support 1333FSB, it did from release, my board will do 507FSB and at extreme systems there are some guys who are getting 4.1Gig on my board out of the 6850....thats of course not to say I will but if I dont, I will buy a P35.
