EVGA 680i mobo and Dimm News?

Important message regarding memory and the EVGA 680i motherboard

 

NVIDIA has investigated end user reports of high performance DIMM failures on the NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI-based platforms. During this process we have been in close contact with DIMM manufacturers and the DRAM manufacturers they rely on to understand the failure scenario. By working with our community, we believe that the observed failure is a breakdown of the silicon in the DRAM caused by the prolonged application of 2.4V on the voltage rails of the DIMMs.

 

NVIDIA’s own internal testing has observed this failure on multiple motherboards using different chipsets (both NVIDIA and non-NVIDIA chipsets). This issue is not directly related to motherboards using the NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI MCP or other chipsets.

 

If you are using this type of memory and are experiencing this issue, NVIDIA recommends contacting your memory manufacturer or system manufacturer for additional information and warranty information.

 

 

I don't have a 680i, but was curious what others with it or with DRAM volted that high have experienced.

Putting 2.4V to the DIMM is definitely going to heat up and cause failure. If you run > 2.1V, I would put some type of cooling on them. Heck coolit at any voltage it will run better and extend the life of the electronics.
