Welp, after a longstanding battle with the vcore settings within the ASUS A7V133 MOBO, I decided to go with the ABIT KT7A. Now I can reach all those vcore settings that would never have posted on my ASUS. I can even restart the system from Windows ME when overclocked. At first I thought it was the PSU 250W. I put in a 350W ENERMAX and it didn't help at all. Another thing, on the ASUS, I got temp readings at 1.75vcore of about 44C at idle. Now I have 32C at idle on my ABIT and about 35C at full load with same cooling, same setup and everything. I'd have to say that the ASUS A7V133 is not a very good board for overclocking other then using default settings. Sorry, but this is from my personal experience on these 2 boards. I will recommend ABIT's KT7A to anyone wanting to overclock with the most stable MOBO out.
