My computer I have the 650i, my other build that I made for my dad is the 680i. I will not be able to sli on my 650i mob though, I ghettofied it lol. I dropped heat sinks on all the chips on the mobo with as5 and a dag of j&b weld so there is no way ill be able to remove those heatsinks for sli w/o ruining the mobo lol. But my mobo temps are wonderful lol
