I've had an eVGA 680i SLI MB  since late January. I think it's a TR.

I'm running an E6600, with 2 GB of OCZ Gold XTC PC2 6400 RAM.

Yesterday, I bought another 2 GB of the RAM. At the time, I had not

heard of some of the issues people have been having with these boards.

The original 2 sticks were in the black DIMM slots. So I added the new

2 to the blue slots. Tried to post, got a 1d error. When I looked it

up, and saw it had to do with memory, I removed the 2 new sticks.

Posted fine. Then, I figured maybe it was one of the new sticks or

slots that was the issue, so I began testing each of the sticks in each

of the slots, getting 1d errors each time. Finally, exasperated, I

decided I'd just return the new RAM. However, when I put back the old

memory in its previous configuration, I still got a 1d error.

The computer would no longer post at all, so I cleared the CMOS with the jumper, and kept trying, to no avail.

I have kept this computer OCed over the past few months, but nothing

extreme - memory has been volted up from the motherboard's default

1.85V, but only to 2V, which is supposedly the spec voltage on the

memory. VCore has been very slightly up from spec.

I

suppose that in theory this could be OCing-related, but I'm just

confused as to why it would randomly show up when putting in new

memory.

The last thing to note is when I turn on the PSU,

the blue LED on the top right of the board turns on, as usual, but so

does the orange LED slightly up and left of it. Is this indicative of

some other problem? I couldn't find any documentation.

Is there some kind of solution people could suggest, or is this an RMA case?

 i have the blue green ans orange one light up all the time on mine. i think i remember the green one being the power for the ram indicator, the orange one its power for the cou indicator and the blue is power for the chip set indicator. at least thats what i remember when i had problems with my mobo a few months back. i take it it wont even post? i would just try one stick at a time in each of the 4 slots. good luck other than that i think its an RMA.

 Yeah, I didn't really think those LEDs had anything to do with it, but had to make sure.

 I've decided to just bit the bullet and RMA the board. It's annoying not to have the comp for a week or two, but I'll live. 

On another note, you have this board? It's looking a lot like the power regulators are getting fried as a result of terrible thermal paste application on them, and that the same problem may be occurring on the NB/SB.Have you experienced that on your board/replaced the paste on those components?

i haven't had a problem with my second one. If you RMA through EVGA its really nice. I have heard of the past on each of the NB/Sb being kind of bad and have seen many people repaste theirs with artic silver for a 3-5c drop in temps, but i haven't done that yet, and don't think i will unless i get a new cooler for the NB and SB but that will come at a later time maybe.
