Well, many of you A7V owners are probably upset about the stability of your system, I know I was. It seemed no matter what configuration/software/bios I used I couldnt get 100% reliability. I got close by removing my SB Live card, but the occasional crash would still happen.....until I made these changes:

1. Changed from Jumperless to Jumper Mode
2. Disabled onboard sound via jumpers (not thru bios as I did before)
3. Changed the frequency selector DIP to the REAL 100(bus)/33(pci) directions found here: http://members.tripod.de/Juggernaut/...shes/index.htm
4. Changed the I/O Voltage (VIO) to 3.35 thru jumpers

Now 3DMark and other tools show a proper CPU speed of 700Mhz rather than 707 or 708 and system is rock stable. I'm not sure which one of the steps was the demon killer, but the combo sure works well.
