Yep, I will NEVER buy a current nvidia chipset. They are horrible and slow

I have these same weird memory problems.

Do you think it is the board? I can still RMA to Newegg, but only for a replacement, it has been quite some time since i bought this stuff.

I just leave it at 800 with low latencies. My OC is rock solid though.

Yeah, whatever. SLI'd 8800's work really well in Oblivion in thick forests where the game will slow down to 30FPS on a single 8800GTX running @ 8xAA whereas it stays right at 60-80 with 16xAA with an SLI'd setup.

An SLI'd setup also runs Rainbow Six Vegas a lot better than a single card.

It's far from a "waste." It benefits current-gen games and it will certainly benefit graphical splendors like Crysis when it comes out.

Thumbs down Re: eVGA 680i memory issues! Buyers beware.

As for the 680i boards, I'm beginning to believe it's just the nForce6 boards in general that have problems. My Asus 650i just arrived defective. I spent the last 8 hours trying to get it to power up. It will sometimes power on for a couple of seconds and power back down for no reason at all. The rest of the time it acts like it doesn't even get power, although the green light on the mobo is on. I tried switching out everything that was running perfectly in my previous P5B Deluxe to no avail. I think this board's just f*cked. First one out of about 7-8 builds that I have ever received like this.

Good ole' Nvidia/Asus and their "quality control" strike again.

This morning I was sitting at my computer reading the headlines at CNN when it decided to reboot. When it came back up it gave me the "windows has recovered from a serious error" message.

Hope that's not a sign of things to come.

Well, no issues here. Are we running the memory at stock speeds (1000 or 800)? Sounds like you were at 1200. With what voltage?

Personally, I run mine at 4-4-4-12, 2T with 2.4V, 1000 MHz.

Thats just windows being cranky. I can't tell you how many times I have gotten that error message after the first boot on a fresh install of windows, on completely different systems.

Thumbs down Re: eVGA 680i memory issues! Buyers beware.

I wasted three days trying to get the board to work before RMA. It had actually been fine (well, apart from occasional BSODs) for a month, then it all started with the P23 BIOS. Frequent freezes, C1 errors on reboot, having to underclock the memory and remove one stick to even post, etc.

I REALLY wanted to love this board, so when I got the 965 mobo and verified that the memory was OK (some people reported dead RAM after the P23 issues), I gave it another try and rebuilt the machine again using the EVGA (I already had the Gigabyte in)... I reverted back to the P21 BIOS and it was all fine for a few hours, then it just froze while doing nothing (I was watching TV at the time) and refused to boot again. When I receive the replacement, I'll just ebay the board and try to forget I've ever had it... Sad, I had high hopes for it.

My memory has been fine running at 1100 for almost 2 weeks now and now all of a sudden it won't even run at it's stock rated speed of 1066 I've had the P23 BIOS from the get-go too. What the heck is the deal? I haven't even made any system changes either.

Geez, looks like I'll be putting the replacement eVGA 680i I'm being sent up on eBay.

I hope to god the 650i replacement from ZZF works this time around.

Going SLI shouldn't be this tough.

I wish I had another motherboard that I could test this memory out with to see if it's the EVGA motherboard or my memory that is punked
