Video Corruption: From what I've seen there is currently no fix for this, and no word from nVidia on it (I could be wrong). And over at the EVGA forums it looks like a lot of people are having this issue, but I realize that it may be kind of skewed to just look at their forum because people will only go there if they're having a problem. So I'm just wondering, how likely is it that if I get one I'll have this problem on my board?

Optical SATA Drives: I've seen mixed reports on this all over the place, but I need my DVD burner (at full its capacity). Is this a common problem with this board? Or if I do end up with this problem couldn't I just circumvent it by using a SATA controller card?

I just want to make sure that getting this board isn't a huge mistake, so any info other than 'tons of people are having this problem' (video corruption) would be helpful. I don't just want to know how many people have this problem, I would like to know how many don't.

Thanks
Unfortunately, I am one of those unlucky ones to be experiencing the video corruption problem. This was right after the optical SATA drive issue that I experienced.

Doesn't leave me with the best user experience by far. My opinion is, unless if you plan to SLI, I would stay away. And even if you decide to SLI, I would think real hard before going with a NVIDIA 700 series motherboard.

The video corruption issue has been experienced on the whole 700 series and not just the 780i.

BTW, I'm on my 3rd 780i board and I experienced the video corruption on all 3 boards. The problem, however, manifested in different ways. Most likely due to the BIOS version I was using.

Microcenter will let me return my board for the same board within 30 days, but wouldn't give me a refund.

The 790i is also effected by the video corruption issue.

Unfortunately, this is not quite the case. The video corruption IS followed by lockups which requires a user initiated reboot. Any clicking of the mouse after the video corruption will result in a PC lockup.

Even more unfortunate for me, this is not an intermittent problem for me. I can create this problem 99% of the time under 4 minutes. Give me 20 minutes, and I can guarantee 100%.

It has been documented that other users affected by the video corruption issue can recreate the problem as well.

Well, until Tae posted I thought things were looking up. I am planning on going SLI eventually, but not right away. I think that since I still had more people here that currently have no problems with their boards I'll still take the chance and order one. Newegg has good customer service anyway, so if I do have to RMA it shouldn't be a hassle.

Thanks for the thoughts though.

I bought mine yesterday before read your thread. I just wonder this board is same as the XFX one, because I heard that it's produced by the same manufacture, but put on different brand names.

Good luck. I seriously hope you don't experience the video corruption problem as some have said.

For me, if the problem was less frequent......once a month or even once a week.....it would be more tolerable. However, it happens EVERYTIME, which makes it intolerable.
