    Thank you

    nope thread was indeed of you but I confused the forum name, it was over at badcaps, my bad http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2033 ...and the link you give in that article leads to 9 blank pages I found it anyways, it was just that in the URL it's the article number 3745 and not 3735 http://www.vr-zone.com/?i=3745&s=9

    reading the 2 given links now

    You are welcome.

    Thanks, I changed the article number so the link works again. It was 3735 when I first made that thread, the dirty dogs changed it.

    Very interesting article about the 965-DQ6, I really hope it will work well with the GA-N680SLI-DQ6 (wishful thinking oh yeah) I don't wait miracles, just some damn cooler temps on those heatsinks, I don't understand why the 680i chipset gets ablaze like this. Less Vdrop also appreciated.

    Just my thoughts, as I have nothing to really back this up.

    In the last few months there have been 5~7 newer ASUS boards posted over at AnandTech that had issues with booting or constant re-boots. They were all RMAed but it seemed they had capacitor problems. I am of the opinion that the new RoHS lead free solder is causing some dry joints. Dry solder joints will increase ESR and drive caps out of spec. This can cause boot issues. Lead free solder has a higher working temp, plus it does not wet as easily and the joints must be cleaner before soldering.

    Before the ASUS fanboies attack: I have a P4P in use and one that has been re-capped on the shelf.

    Start a thread about what board to get. If I were looking for a board Abit, Albatron and Gigabyte would all get a good look. Look over at motherboards.org to see what they have to say.
