EVGA 680i died. Need replacement... any suggestions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As the title says, it seems my motherboard died.

Rig as spec'd below. One day I turned it off, then it wouldn't turn back on... the system was starting to suffer from intermittent freezes and one of the sata channels had previously stopped working. Now the system won't even start, though I do see the green light on the motherboard flashing. So I suspect my power supply is still good. Besides, I've had a 680i die for no reason shortly after I built the system, which EVGA replaced.

So, my questions are... think I diagnosed this right, and if so, is there a currently produced motherboard you would recommend switching to using my current components?

Sorry, I've been 'out of the hardware loop' since building this system. Any advice would be appreciated.
