Default VR-Zone reviews: Foxconn N68S7AA-8EKRS2H NVIDIA 680i SLI

Here's a review of the latest player in the 680i scrum. I gleaned these pros and cons from the review:
+ solid metal capacitors
+ nifty active mcp, spp cooling
+ good bling
+ stable and problem free
- only 4 phase power
- conservative memory volts
- fsb limited to around 400

"In just a few weeks previous, there were about 4 different models of NVIDIA 680i SLI motherboards in the market - the reference boards used by EVGA, Inno3D, Biostar, etc, the IN9 32x MAX from abit, the GA-N680SLI-DQ6 from Gigabyte, the Striker Extreme and P5N32-E from ASUS. The latest addition to this list is the Foxconn N68S7AA-8EKRS2H , based on the same chipset but differently built from the Reference boards."

after how unimpressed I am with my foxconn 975x board, I don't think I'd get another high end Foxconn board, no matter what the reviewer says about it...

The Northbridge cooler looks pretty interesting. A bit like a barn really....
