EVGA 750I isn't FTW at all !

post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 
I was about to order the EVGA 750I FTW until I read the problems with the Sata ports. There are a number of threads on the EVGA site that talk about it so I won't post the links. The EVGA tech said they are looking into it (that was what he said about the 650I fan control problem too).

So as far as I can tell the problem is this:

When you configure raid on your Sata drives, it makes all 4 Sata ports Raid (NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO).

There was one guy who wanted a standard Sata Vista volume and a raid 0 storage volume. So he installed Vista on the Sata drive and then set up the other 2 drives as raid 0 and it wont see his Vista volume anymore because it changes all or nothing to raid.

Another person had 2 sata drives set up in raid 0 for their windows volume and they had a Sata Dvd drive. It would not boot off the DVD drive with any combination of setups because when you set up one port raid they all are raid. So he had to install an IDE DVD drive to get his system up.

Those types of problems are completely unacceptable with a board of that price. And it isn't like Sata DVD drives are new. I am running one on my 650i with a Raid 0 windows volume and a standard sata storage volume. It works here on the 650i, but that same config would fail on the 750i.

So in EVGA's usual form the only confirmation of this is from their forum tech who said they are looking into it a week ago. They continue to sell the board on their website with no notice of the problem.

If I bought it I would be awfully p.o.'d that they didnt warn me of such a huge problem.

No wonder newegg has the board on a non-refundable status instead or their normal return policy or 30 day return policy.

Sorry to be so long winded but I thought some of you would want to know.

This just in: They have officially (technician on their forum) said the workaround is don't use a Sata DVD if you are using Raid. They have no ETA for a fix at this time. Leave it to EVGA to only understand a little piece of the problem. They have ignored the full picture and addressed one little portion of it. Oh well. I'm done with them.

This is the kind of trash that makes people never buy another piece of hardware from a company. If I had wasted $200 on that board before I found out all this, I think I would have delivered it to them personally.

That's a pretty serious problem with the 750i. Does it only happen to the eVGA nForce 750i FTW?

Does it happen with all the evga 750i mobos ? I don't use SATA now but i might when i get a second HDD. But i am sure they can fix it with a new BIOS update.

This is good to know I was going to get one for my next build, now I might have to rethink somethings unless they can fix this.

I love how you're complaining about all of this - how you've had enough with Evga and won't buy any more of their products - when you haven't even experienced the problem yet and you don't even know if you will. It may just be a defect with certain boards and hardware configurations.

I'm not sure if it is a 750I chipset problem or an ECGA problem. I was going to go up to nvidia and see if I could determine that but this is just getting to be too much trouble.

The sad thing is that there are reviews all over the net on this motherboard and I have to think they have hidden this issue on purpose. How could someone not have stumbled onto it? It takes me back a few years to another board with a huge issue that everyone hid. Makes you think all these review guys are really just bought and paid for advertising and P/R flunkies.

You are mistaken. I've been researching for 2 days. My research was brought on by the fact the Newegg changed the refund policy on this board to non-refundable. When they did that, I knew something was wrong.

So "you're done with them [Evga]" because you read about how if you had bought one of their boards you could of received a defected one with a defect that Evga doesn't seem to be addressing.

Not because you actually bought one and experienced these problems...?

Huh?
