Some EVGA customers using the EVGA nForce 680i SLI motherboard have reported experiencing disconnect or write error issues with SATA disk drives. To address this, we have worked with NVIDIA to release a BIOS update for this motherboard that eliminates this bug.
EVGA and NVIDIA strongly recommend that all customers upgrade their motherboards to this new BIOS, regardless of whether or not they have experienced this bug. This NVIDIA hotfix will automatically check your system to determine if an update is required. If an update is required, it will prompt you to install the hotfix, and upon completion it will shutdown your system. The hotfix will preserve all of your current computer settings, and will likely improve your system stability. Details This update is related to SATA disk drives and system instability. System instability is observed in the following ways (not a complete list):
• Random application shutdown
• Corrupted boot drive
• â€œBlue screen of deathâ€
• Corrupt data
This update will improve system stability and prevent future stability issues related to SATA disk drives on those systems requiring this hotfix.
