    Don't RMA and do THIS:

Thread Starter 
I'm two years into my three years warranty for my sig rig's mobo. Recently, it lost a stick of my ram. I thought maybe the stick went bad, so i swapped it out with some other ram with the same result

It also turns off and on twice before booting into windows from a cold start, on a restart, and also when i wake it up from sleep. This happened to me when i first installed my 980 (about 7 months ago), so checked for bent pints and reseated which fixed it. I've done that twice with no result

Now the PC crashes during almost all operation. gaming, surfing, just listening to itunes. My screen flashes and reports the Nvidia drivers crashed and recovered, and sometimes it just blue screens. I've gone through a few different Nvidia driver clean installs again with no result.

Disabling SLi seems to work, but thats whack. I invested in two watercooled 580's for a reason and have had no issues in a year+ with them.

So the only other thing i could think of is a fresh install of Windows 7, but considering the boot issues before windows even boots, i dont think that will fix it.

To RMA or not RMA?
