    Is your cpu fan plugged into the correct header on the mobo? Is it turning? Many mobos will shut down very quickly if they do not detect cpu fan rpm. This prevents burning out the cpu if ti has no cooling.

    I had this same problem with my 7VRXP - it ended up being that the cooler wasn't doing it's job. Make sure you have a good quality CPU cooler and be SURE it is installed corectly.

    Let's take a vote: All in favor of getting rid of the 7VRXP ver. 1.1 raise your hands. OK, then it's agreed.
    I RMA'd mine as soon as ver. 2 came out with new components, a clear admission that ver. 1.1 was defective. I had no faith that ver. 2 would be better and needed absolute stability, so I went to an Intel with 845G chipset. I know that's an extreme switch, but I also went from total unreliability, frequent crashes, blue screens and frustration, to complete sublime stability.

    That may have been the case in some instances (a few hundred boards according to Gigabyte) but quite a few ppl out there that own these boards and have had no probs what so ever with them. 3 of them that I built myself now (1 I own myself, PC No.2 in sig, that has run 24/7 since I built it and crunches Seti units while playin' games) but ya always hear of the bad stories and little of the good ones. :smokin:

    Hey Wiggo, how can you tell what version the board has?
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    The version is printed on the board with the model number by the nth. bridge but the suspect boards where from "C" batches which can be found on a sticker attached to the serial/parrallel port housing. The 1st 2 boards that I used were "E" batches and the recent last was a "D". ;)
