    I have finally gotten mine working after 8 months.

    Here's what I had
    1800 plus running at 1.15Ghz instead of the proper 1.53 Ghz

    I was told to update bios (easy with included windows utility) and then to flip a switch on the mobo from AUTO (=100Mhz) to OFF (=133Mhz).

    this did make it run at 1.53Ghz (133x11.5 multiplier), but only for a few minutes and then it would lock up. what i did was keep this setting at 133, then increase core voltage to +5% in the BIOS settings. now it seems to run stable (it's been on a few hours now) and runs at 1.53Ghz as it should. it now runs a bit hotter, but still within acceptable range.

    Hope this helps. I'd avoid this board like the plague if it were mine to do over again.

    I've heard of problems with this board when combined cheaper generic PSU's and it's usually because the PSU isn't delivering enough watts on the 3.3v and 5v rails that causes it. : peace2:

    My PC No.2 (with that board) has been runnin' 24/7 for over 8 months now under full constant load with the XP1800+ @ 150MHz FSB (XP2100+) and has given me no probs at all. :thumb:

    There are some problems with the 1.1 revision of the 7VRXP. They are not very stable when overclocking. I had one and replaced it with a MSI KT-3 Ultra 2. It was pretty good, but I switched to the dark side of intel. I couldn't be happier.

    Hi. Can you guys help me out.Here are my specs:-

    GA-7VAXP
    ATHLON 1800XP
    256 DDR PC2700
    GFORCE 2 MMX440 AGP

    My problem is that when i power on the system, power comes to it for about 5-10seconds then it cuts off. I am at a loss.However, when i take out the cpu and then power on, the power stays on. Could my cpu be the culprit? I sent the cpu by a friend to check on his mobo.I'll let you guys know. But what if the cpu is good, what then could it be?
