EVGA 750I isn't FTW at all ! - Page 4

post #31 of 89
To the OP:

lol, I had a defective 780i at first, but I still love me my eVGA...customer support is top notch, and while the step-up program is questionable at times, it still eliminates the need to resell one's cards in order to upgrade.

I can see why you would reconsider this purchase, but shunning eVGA entirely? A rather poor move. To each his own, I suppose...I'll reread this thread a little later.

EDIT: Also, I'm not sure what some of you are talking about, but I had no issue RMA'ing my first motherboard for refund from NewEgg, and purchasing elsewhere.

I'm sure I could eventually come to like and maybe recommend the 700 series if/when they fix some of the problems reported......okay if/when they fix the problems I'm experiencing.

Just that I've experienced more BSOD's and PC freezes in the past 2 months than I've experienced in the past 22 years combined.

I do agree that most every product is going to have some issues. But seriously, the type of problems some are seeing on the NVIDIA boards are unacceptable.

The biggest issue I'm seeing now on all 700 series motherboard is the inability to play video and be stable. It's being reported everywhere. And before that I was getting BSOD's left and right from using a SATA optical drive.

And check out the article below:

http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=3279&p=4

Author references hard drive data corruption on the 790i motherboard that existed since the 600 series. How long has the 600 series chipset been out?

For those who don't have any issues with their NVIDIA motherboards, God bless you.

I wouldn't wish this type of torture and frustration I feel on my worst enemy.

Read carefully, "However, none of that compares to the data corruption problems we are seeing intermittently on the 790i and 780i platforms. We honestly thought NVIDIA had solved these problems back in 2006 on the 680i platform. Since the MCP has not changed, it is disconcerting to us that this problem seems to be rearing its ugly head again.". I assume it clearly states that 680i have this solved (haven't seen anyone complaining about that even once for quite a while, so i yea, it's gone).

Mmm, oh, if it indeed solves raid issue then people need to start blaming nVidia for something else.
From my point of view it was a simple matter of BIOS issue, since hardware part is doing good and apparently wow, that was a case, who could have thought.

Seriously, from all those post it appears that evey single Intel chipset is perfect and runs trouble free from the early stages of development. Guess what? It's not the case.

The first BSOD issues were acknowledged by both NVIDIA and EVGA. It's well documented in the thread below. It was due to the use of SATA optical drives. They fixed the problem with chipset drivers 9.64.

http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=312197

My currently issue I have is in regards to video corruption which eventually causes PC freeze requiring a reboot. You can check out the number of people experiencing the problem in the thread below.

http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=253891

Trust me, it's not my RAM. In fact, I wish the problems experienced were that simple. I would gladly pay $200 (4x2GB this time around) and swap out my RAM if it was the cause.

Also getting random BSOD's when my PC comes out of sleep. It hasn't been fun the last 2 months. My wife keeps asking me why my $2,000 PC that I just put together can't do what the computer we had for 4 years seem to do without any issues.

Okay, just because you haven't heard it in awhile, doesn't mean the problem is gone.

Also, the author is stating the MCP used in the 790/780i has not changed from the MCP used in the 680i. So why have the data corruption problems on the 790/780 that was experienced on the 680i? The author states he "thought" the problem was resolved. He didn't state the problem was solved with the 680i. Maybe it's not resolved on the 680i as well.
