EVGA 680i .....D.O.A.
Well, I finally went and upgraded to C2D and of course, I'm one of the lucky ones. Got everything installed and right when I'm on the verge of jumping out of my skin in anticipation, I plug the beast in....hit the power button and....nothing. Just to double check, borrowed a friends Intel board and plugged everything into that, fired right up. RMA time for the EVGA 680i. Soooooo disappointed. I'm seriously thinking about getting a different board all together and avoiding EVGA motherboards from here on out...my NF41 board stunk it up too.
