Yeah, i am glad i purchased the N7V8X deluxe.. I had a rough first couple days with a bad bios, but once i got it flashed to 1001.c, it became much more stable. I have also read that the battery that comes stock with this thing is bad. I noticed mine is a 3v, and others are saying to put in a 3.3v and all problems go away. Only problem i have at the moment is sometimes it don't like to reboot
i just get a blank screen, monitor shuts off....have to clear cmos and start over.
