just wondering if every thinks that this is ok?
Current temp is 52C and i upped the voltage 5% up, i'll run a few tests to get the cpu at full force. Heres my stats

Athlon 1900+ overclocked to 2100+ (+5% voltage)
Gigabyte GA-7VRXP
512 megs of PC2100 ram
GeForce 3 Ti200 (overclocked to a TI500 specs)
Sound Blaster Live
Antec 1040 case with 4 fans

The video card's been overclocked for a while and since it had a large heatsink over the ram/gpu i figured it would be ok. Anyone seeing any problems?

If its stable you are good to go, run prime95 for a while to acertain if its good. You may also not need to raise the voltage, try and see if its good at stock voltage.

i'd say you're ok as long as you're running winXP.

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

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.
