Anyone having issues with this board. Seems to run well and overclock very easily, only problem is I am running a athlon XP 2500 1.8 Ghz overclocked to 2.1 with stock heatsink and fan and running 47 degrees celsius. Would like it much cooler. Was told the fan would make it run around 40 degrees. Saw some postings about the Gigabyte boards running hot. Anyone with any info I would appreciate.

running idle...do have some programs running. Use cable for internet, ran nascar 4 online for about 1 hour and then checked temp. still only running aabout 48 at that time.
low benchmarking also....3d mark 2003 under 1000
running around 5500 .......3d mark 2001 SE
have old hard drive 5200 rpm 13 gig
and run geforce fx 5200 128 mg video card..."that i am being told sucks" after buying it and 2 computer stores says its a good card. PC Club for one and 5 'oClock Computers "who sold it to me"
Ye I was told be my supplier that the fx 5200 128 is a good board for the price, but thatís all, like every thing else ye got to pay up front for ye good stuff.
Well you have a good board for upgrading im the same GA-7N400 Pro just waiting till them 400ís to come down in price, got a xp 2700 in at mo with no OC. just downloaded 3d mark 2003 just doing a bench will tell you the out come in a mo, itís a little jerky on some of the bench but look really good
3d mark 2003 Ė1491 thatís my score
Think your score is ok looking at mine lol
Ata 133 120 gig
Msi ti4200 8x
Shame the ti4200 are not to bad, I got it for capturing from camcorder and its s--t hot on that, as soon as a m8 of mine found out what I could do with it he went and got one lol, it plays all the games at mo so will leave it for now,
Got a couple of comps for sale, made up from all my bits and bats so will invest in a nice card shortly
I meant... i have a 5200 fx lite series...it is an ok card...was told to get a ti 4200 but the dork at the computer store told me that the 5200 was better and i didn't research, so now i got screwed with the fx instead of the card i was actuallly going to get..."the ti4200"...sorry about the confusion
Ye cheers Nathan, I just downloaded my latest 20 mins ago, bios_7n400p_f12
will see if mine runs a bit cooler after update as mine runs at 60 lmao.
Ye Keith. I was saying shame you did not get the ti4200, can the card you have now capture
i don't really use it for anything really hard...maybe some pc games in the future...so not to upset with the fx card. If i really wanted to use my pc for something major besides some gaming i would have been more upset...
Nascar 4 running online was running around 140 FPS and running with high detail and all the extra's turned on...so doesn't perform to bad for what i use it for...
I also am so sorry jus to butt in like this , but like so many , I am simply crackin up here . I think I got the right motherboard with a chipset GA-7VKMLS. Here goes and no laffin !
Was trying to install a web cam ( easy , I hear you say ) and actually tried 2 models over a 3 day period . Pute showed devices properly installed and working , with attendant software and drivers in place . Cam jus refused to work , not a pic at all , not a single sausage ! It began to look like ANOTHER device or application was using the cam instead . Quick as a flash , ( after many hours and 3 days , as I drizzle on ) I thought , "I can fix that problem !" So off I went on my merry way , uninstalling every image device , application and bit of software related to imaging that I could find . Ooops !
I ended up clicking on on an icon in the toolbar for "Sistray" saw an "application " button , which I just couldn't resist pushing , then also pushed "remove device driver " ( at least I think that is what it said ) . Oops !
Now the pute will only start up in safe mode and I am dying here . I have trawled some sites , but am having probs even reading the content because of the safe mode colour scheme !
Can anyone help ? From where do I get a new driver for this thing , if indeed that is what is needed . Even on the AMD site it seems unclear to me , and there Driver Pack V.1.30 testing kit failed to find any AMD components installed ! But I swear it is an AMD Duron in a Triton K7.........via KM 266/KL 266 .
I just downloaded the latest easytune 4 that comes with the board and ever since then I have been getting Danger Danger over my speakers, not sure what to do, can anybody help. it isn't overclocked, the board is just new, like 17 days old and it is saying the CPU heat is 60 degress celcius, but have taken the side of the case and it doesn't seem to cool it down.
Thinking of getting another fan or using system restore to take it back to before. I have a Radeon 9200 256mb graphics card 512 ddr ram, athlon 2400+ and 2 hard drives of 20gig and 80 gig respectively
