Default Re: eVGA 680i memory issues! Buyers beware.

I've had to lower my memory down to 712. I only had it running at 9## (I forget)stable, but suddenly started getting errors recently.
This sucks....

That memory is rated to run at 1066 though right? 2.2v

Be careful Slawter. Read that evga thread before doing anything as I saw a few folks saying it created issues, but I didn't read the whole thread in detail and to be fair alot of people said P23 is no good an I thought it was fine. I still maintain that the board is great and stable, but I would still be careful of a new bios, (just in case) until people have confirmed it's cool.

Yep that happened to me and a usb keyboard solved it. Get a logitech one though as some people on evga reported that Microsoft ones didn't help.

Default Re: eVGA 680i memory issues! Buyers beware.

My board will still not run my memory at 1066 (factory specs) after the P24 bios update. What's strange is that my memory ran fine at 1111 for a week and a half before it started having problems. Then like mentioned above I moved from blue to brown RAM slots and it worked for maybe another day and then NEITHER slot would run the memory sticks above 933.

I'm RMA'ing my mobo but it makes me wonder if it somehow damaged my memory?

New board didn't fix anything. Memory still won't do over 1100MHz for any period of time, and I'm expect it to get worse. Not to mention this board produces a god awful screeching noise if I'm over 70% CPU usage. Great product, EVGA.

Default Re: eVGA 680i memory issues! Buyers beware.

I installed my new mobo last night too. The memory was running at 1111MHz for about an hour and then back to the same problems. Had to back the memory back down to 800MHz again. I went and bought two more Corsair 8500C5 2GB chips and it's been running stable at 1130MHz since I've installed it this morning.

So I'm guessing my old motherboard had problems, took out the memory that was installed in it.. and now I've reset the clock and waiting for the same problems to happen with the new setup in a week like it did the first time around

I REALLY hope that's not the case and it'll just "work as designed" this time

Let me know how that turns out, if you would. I guess I'll have to RMA my memory if buying a new kit solved your issues. Freaking ridiculous.

I've had my memory OC'd to 1250 for about 2 weeks now with no problems. I may kick it back down to 1066 after reading this thread lol.

Took my memory out and left it on my desk for a few hours. 1200MHz is working fine @ 5-5-5-15. Haven't tried anything else yet. 20 minutes Orthos blend stable so far. I fear it will crap out again though.

Yeah, mine seemed to act fine for awhile when it was given a little "rest".. lol. I just don't get that either
