I'm sorry but for someone that works at OCUK saying the Evga 680I doesn't support quads that well is just TFF. Unless your talking the NF63-TR revision which you should specify because the one he selected is a perfect board for quad core overclocking.
The Evga 680I T1/A1 revisions are the number 1 pick for quad core overclockers. Also Maximum PC's motherboard of choice for there dream machine 07.
It would appear you really don't know much of anything along these lines, so maybe you should just avoid giving BS replys or inaccurate info. It just sounds like your pushing Asus IMO. I'm kind of sorry for the comment r_moore04 but it kind of pisses me off when people reply to threads that don't know what there talking about.
I've owned both Asus and Evga and I can tell you you'll be much happier with the Evga 680I. You would be smarter to wait for the new 780I's to get released though. Since they will have PCI-E 2.0 support plus support the new 45nm Intel Yorkfield chips. That or go with the new Intel X38 Chipset.
The second one you selected the Asus P5n32 isn't that great of a board. Support sucks and the warranty service is a joke. I have the Asus P5n32 Sli Premium version and it is crap compared to my 680I. Not to mention lifetime overclocking warranty so if you burn it you get a new one for nothing! That is if you get the A1 revision if you can find one. The T1 is the light version of the board and is missing a few things and comes with a 3 year warranty.
