i'd say you're ok as long as you're running winXP.
[insert philosophical statement here]
the motherboard works great, gaming is smooth and photo editing is perfect. I really do enjoy this mobo. I did try lowering the voltage to stock and it wouldn't load windows. After running prime95's stress test the temp went up to a whole 56C (which is nice because my old athlon 700 with a orb was always at 60C) I did get a bad board to begin with but the one i got back from the RMA seems to be working fine. I also pushed my processor with an hour of converting video just to make sure. Otherwise it seems to be a stable motherboard. =P
btw, yes i am using win xp pro. =P
lucky bastard wish I could do the same, so far it failed. :frown:
1) Via-bridges (<font color=red>not very stable</font color=red>) 2) cannot install XP (hangs on setup)
For the moment I'll wait 'till the hammer comes out.
Now available: notebook with Mobile Hammer CPU and Geforce6; awesome!
