thinking of getting a 780i, few questions though - Page 4

post #31 of 46
It comes out tomorrow, if anything buy it from somewhere that will allow you to return it and do everything you can to destroy it, if it makes it out alive, then keep it.

Ive gone through 5 of them already.

will it have any problems with a raid?
will it have any problems with an e8400 and oc'ing it?
will it have any problems with a 9800gtx, and maybe go sli someday?
how prevalent is the vid corruption thingy?
no problems with sata dvd burner
no problems with vista64
I'm not running raid, so i dont know.
Have the e8400 oc'd to 4.0ghz with ease.
I am running 8800gts sli'd with no problems, not sure about the 9800gtx
i haven't noticed the vid corruption thingy yet.

PS i have only had my sig rig for about 2 weeks.

Probably, but in two weeks, the FTW version with the new and much improved cooler comes out.

so, will a true fit on the hybrid cooler one or not? and is teh normal 780i ftw one better enough to get that instead of waiting for the hybrid, i dont think i could afford teh hybrid. or does it suffer from many of teh same probs as teh current 780i?

could really use an answer guys

Beats me, no one has held one yet, and I considering the difference in price, I guess it couldn't hurt to spend the extra $10 for the FTW with standard air cooling.
