Nvidia Admits Overclocking Problems With nForce 790i Chipset


Nvidia released a brief announcement admitting that its latest nForce 790i chipset for Intel CPUs cause data corruption under overclocking conditions.

The problem was reported by many enthusiasts that tried to overclock a 790i-based system by changing the processor system bus (PSB) as well as the memory clock speeds. Reports indicated that this procedure could lead to data corruption on hard disk drives.

"Nvidia has received reports of data corruption when using certain high speed memory and overclocking the front side bus," Nvidia admitted. "Our engineers are currently investigating this issue and as soon as we have more information, we will provide an update," the company said.

Apparently, Nvidia is preparing a new BIOS update to fix the problems related to the most expensive chipset around.

Consumers had also experienced similar issues in the past caused by the Nvidia nForce 4 based motherboards.

Nvidia's 790i platform is designed for current and next-generation Intel CPUs, including those that support a 1600MHz frontside bus (FSB). It supports DDR3 memory, PCI Express Gen 2.0, and the new Enthusiast System Architecture (ESA) communications protocol for the real-time monitoring and control of PC components. The nForce 790i Ultra SLI MCP is also certified to run 2-Way, 3-Way, and Quad SLI GPU configurations.
