    Well I opened my case and discovered this - Rev 1.1 mboard mind you, notice that capacitor? Keep in mind this was a unopened box straight from gigabyte.


    My debate has been ended. Earlier today in another thread I had debated on taking back this board even though it was 100% stable, I mean rock solid. I now know that I won't have to send this in to get "reworked". Some of you that have the rev 1.1 board may want to look at that too.

    END OF CUT/PASTE FROM THREAD FOUND ON AMDFORUMS.COM

    I guess this is what my "re-worked: REV 1.1 board will look like when it comes back.

    Just thought this was interresting.

    Below is the board I RMA'd back to Gigabyte (Rev 1.1). I took some pics of it before sending it back.
    (Sorry the quality's not better )

    I'll post a picture when it comes back as well.

    From everything I've seen the newer REV 2.0 has a resistor (labeled "R833") which is not on a "re-worked" REV 1.1 MOB.

    Wiggo,

    Just wondering about something. I see a lot of posts in other forums about guys using Power Supplies way above what I'm using. Based on the components I'm using for the PC I'm building I think 431 Watt PS should be plenty.

    When I first started building my PC I thought 431 Watt was a bit of overkill but then I see guys building PCs with fewer components and using 550 watt or higher.

    Any feedback on my power supply selection?

    Figured I would ask since I'm still waiting for my "re-worked" GA-7VRXP MOB (Rev 1.1).

    Anyone else have any feedback feel free to respond as well.

    :cheers:

    431w is plenty im getting a 480w and I dont even need that much all I really need is 380w im just getting that cause it comes with a blue LED but 550w no one really uses that much power I mean if u have like 15 slots of DDR and 18 hard Drives and a Volcano 90+ Fan with 18 Drives............maybe.

    Just Normally the more watts u have the better incase u dont have enough. but I have seen people with 580w and all they got is a Mobo . graphics , cd/rw and HD - no dvd and sound is on the mobo .: peace:

    nosX / Wiggo,

    Thanks for the sanity check. I thought I had more than enough juice. :thumb:

    Just started wondering why I was seeing so many 500+ watt PSU being used out there in PCs with very few components in them.

    P.S. Hoping to have that MOB this week! Was shipped out last Friday........
