edit: it makes me boil thinking about it-- I really comiserate

Shall we call this thread "another extreme strike againt the 680i'?
that said-- I will still be glad I bought this board until it happens to me (fingers x-ed)-- thinking I might want to scale back my OC

you know im not really sure if it was heat at the north and south bridge due to oc'ing the board...i di have some major oc'ing success with both cpu's and the EVGA 680i

however i think im going to grab an ***us board tommorow ( if i can find one locally in stock) and just sell or hold on to the rma'd evga 680i when i receive it
