Not its fault

 

Nvidia and eVGA have released a warning over the use of high-speed DDR2 modules with the Nvidia 680i SLI chipsets.

 
According to a press release the chipset is not to blame, but the stock voltage of these extremely fast DIMMs can actually cause damage to the memory.The statement said that Nvidia had investigated end user reports of high performance DIMM failures on the NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI-based platforms. 

 
It concluded that the observed failure was caused by a breakdown of the silicon in the DRAM caused by the prolonged application of 2.4V on the voltage rails of the DIMMs.

 
Most overclockers know that they could face damage to their systems when operating out of spec, but the warning relates to stock settings. The warning does not specify whether it is only eVGA motherboards or all 680i based boards.
