Issues with nVidia 680i Motherboards and Memory

Recommended Posts

I have been a long time user of Corsair products. I recently purchased TWIN2X2048-8500C5 from NewEgg.com for my new system. (See below for system components) As many of you may already know there have been many many problems with the 680i motherboards. Blame keeps being shifted to the memory in various post and I would like an insight to the findings of the RamGuy as to what exactly Corsair believes to be the issue with NF68 motherboards/memory.


I have posted several threads on both EVGA's motherboard, video card and general forums about this issue. Several people keep claiming that bad ram is responsible for these issues. If you need more info about the issues im sure just heading on over to http://www.evga.com for a quick review of their motherboards forum would bring you up to speed.


Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.

Just make sure you have updated the Bios for the Evga 680i SLi,It is not the memory ,it has something to do with the Bios ,if you are talking about when running over a 1000mhz and getting the SATA errors ,I have ran my Corsair PC2 8500C5 Dominator and recieved those SATA errors when I would run my memory over 1000mhz ,but the lastest Bios update seems to have fixed this ,I also have the Asus 650i SLI and had no problem when running at 1000mhz with my PC2 8500C5D,with the P25 bios on my Evga 680i SLI ,it seems to have fixed the problems with the memory ,I can run my PC2 8500C5 Dominator ram as high as 1200mhz at 5-5-5-15-2T at 2.3v ,but I am also useing the Dominator Fan when running that high ,But since I see very little performance gain at that speed ,I keep my E6600 Core 2 Duo at 3.6gig at 1.31v so that I can run my system at a 1:1 ratio and keep my PC2 8500C5D ram at 800mhz running at 4-3-3-8-2T at 2.1v,since I get the best performance and stability at that speed.
