NVIDIA has admitted that its new nForce 790i chipset may cause data corruption when overclocking. A support article on the company’s website says:
Unfortunately NVIDIA hasn’t revealed any workarounds or specific details on what causes the data corruption, so it may be best for 790i owners to run at stock speeds until a solution is found.
NVIDIA has received reports of data corruption when using certain high speed memory and overclocking the front side bus. Our engineers are currently investigating this issue and as soon as we have more information, we will provide an update to this knowledge base article.
