EVGA offers $90 upgrade to 780i with free shipping
 
Perhaps this is an olive branch extended to those of us who had expected and relied on the fact that the 680i would run 45nm. I know I'll accept it, although I'll most likely wait a few weeks before bothering with the swap out as it's a pain in the @#$^ with H2O. It'll also give me a chance to see what the competition shapes up to be in the new year.

EVGA is proud to announce the 680i Motherboard Upgrade Promotion.

Depends on how you ship it. Most shippers charge a "brokerage" fee to hand it across the border.

I've shipped things to and from evga twice, and haven't been charged that yet- send it canada post and they'll take care of the return

so, just what do i gain in upgrading to the new mobo?

Hmmmm....says it will not accept modified boards. If I put the stock heatpipe cooler back on, wonder if they will notice....

darkorb December 17, 2007 01:57 PM

dont think they will notice

I got screwed on a step up with customs charges. I guarantee they charge it and I bet they even tack on a higher fee to ship it to Canada.

Also- if you're water cooling the NB, be prepared to line up a new mosfet cooler as the stock one is attached to the stock NB heatsink by a heatpipe-

these boards come shipped with double and triple SLI bridges
