I appreciate your efforts. I have had a number of "overclockers" motherboards over the years from Asus, ABit, Iwill, and my first Epox, the 8KHA+.

While I love the board's speed, the stability is marginal at best. Between random rebooting, the lack of ability to run vcore above 2.03v, and the apparent difficulty to further mod this board, I'm going to leave the Epox camp for now when the Abit KR7A becomes available. It would be different if my cpu or peripheral hardware were holding me back and the board was not preventing gains. When it is the mobo that holds back the effort, it's frustrating because relatively speaking, it is one of the least expensive pieces in my box, and thus easiest to change.

It's a frustrating situation.
