Got my replacement mobo yesterday in the post. A refurbished TH7II-RAID, for €65, P&P incl.
I killed my other mobo by taking it for a swim in my PC case, whilst it was still plugged into the PSU. :eek:
At least it's an upgrade, TH7-RAID to TH7II-RAID. Looking forward to using that AGP/PCI lock, to allow me to push my CPU to the max. (may be able to get a 2.53GHz C step P4, try to get FSB up to 170) and still use my WinRAID(0) 2xSCSI U160 setup.

Is the Thermal sensor probe they supply with the mobo reliable? Are its temps skewed like some of the CPU temp probes I have use don other mobo's?

SOME TH7s overvolt a lot. Others don't. And my indicated CPU temps are never lower than about 45 C idle; the load temps are 58-64 C no matter what heatsink I use.
