Tech Link (Motherboard): 680i Quad Core Update

So finally, mystery has been solved. I still remember going nuts about this board and cursing it till I can't find the right word to say. I even sent a PM to FUGGER because, for the life of me, I can't break 330FSB on my QuadCore. Well, FUGGER said he is having the same issue, so my board was sold "just like that" and I bid goodbye to such a sucky product. Anyway, if you don't know what I am blabbering about, it's specific to QuadCore overclocking. Check out eVGA*'s response by expanding this blog post.
