After word circulating around the web a few days ago that NVIDIA's top notch 680i chipset has been reported to experience SATA issues (resulting in potential data loss!), it seems NVIDIA are onto the problem like flies to sh*t. The Inquirer have the details.

SOMETIMES, IT TAKES just a bit of a nudge to get things really moving. Sometimes a particular hardware component may come with a bit of a curse. Nvidia for example, didn't have much luck with now ever-present S-ATA standard. The first nForce4-SLI chipsets on the market came with corruption of data on hard drives. And history repeated itself.

The NForce 680i is without a doubt, better and more complete chipset than the 975X or P965. However, the whole "better" argument took a pasting when users started to report data corruption on SATA drives. And even worse, on RAID arrays, regardless of the type (0, 1, and 5).
