Total control from the comfort of the couch is what AI Remote provides. With just the touch of a button, the user can quickly perform computer activities such as switching the PC ON/OFF; launching favorite applications by enabling the AP Trigger function; or controlling AI Gear and AI Nap. Furthermore, the AI Remote gives the user the versatility of a traditional remote on media player. With an ASUS AI Remote, the user can accomplish so much more with the PC from a distance.

U may have read on XS of people experiencing sound issues when running 8800GTX in Sli....well. If anyone else on here is considering a move to Sli on a 680i based motherboard it looks like there is a solution (if u use Asus boards). I flashed my BIOS to version 0901 today and it has resolved the crackling I used to get in BF2142.

I am a happy man.
