Default Can't order a EVGA 680i (122-CK-NF68-A1)

I've been looking for the EVGA 680i (122-CK-NF68-A1) at direct canada, NCIX, tiger direct and tddirect.ca - everyone seems to be out of stock at the moment.

Anyone have any information on when DC or any of the other retailers will be getting a new shipment?

Yeah they are back ordered everywhere. The 680i LT boards are in large supply, and really you get essentially the same board, minus the heatpipes, and minus the 3rd PCIe card. But really who needs 3 PCIe slots, and most of us watercool the northbridge anyway....

I got lucky and managed to get a 122-CK-NF68-T1 just last week, but I think I got the last one!

Dude, the 680i is a great board. I have 0 issues with it. It WAS a bad board, when the BIOS's were crap, and the quadcore support was terrible, but that was at least a year ago. Now, it is a new board revision, and for me it has been flawless. That is also with a Overclocked quadcore, running 1600MHZ FSB, 4GB RAM, and SLI enabled, which would be a makor headache with any other board.

I dont dispute it is a great board but the 700 series is around the corner.. heck look at my sig.... support for the next up coming chip set is now limited... and the focus is going to be in the 700 now. intel pulled the rug out of the 680i... the evga forums were ablaze with criticism over this fact.. and it is apparently gonna affecting all 680's

"
EVGA 680i users,

The EVGA 680i SLI motherboard will support 45nm Wolfsdale (dual core) CPU's with an upcoming BIOS update. 45nm Yorkfield (quad core) CPU's will be supported on upcoming nForce 700-series SLI motherboards."
