    Yes I do, actually I have the VAXP version and I haven't had any trouble with it except one glitch that I haven't worked out yet. Other wise, it is a great board.

    I ran a GA-7VAXP v1.1 board for a while but because I wanted to play about overclocking I switched to an Abit NF7-S v2.0.

    The GA-7VAXP ran stable with:

    Athlon XP 2100+ (Palomino and Tbred B cores)
    Sapphire 9700 Pro 128mb (AGP 8X with no problems)
    512mb OCZ EL-DDR PC3500
    2xSeagate Barracuda IV 40gb 7200rpm
    1xHercules Fortissimo II
    Enermax 350w Dualfan PSU

    I found it to be a very stable board.
    No problems with it... :D

    PS: Ello Boeing ;)

    I have this motherboard, and its fine. Well, apart from the fact that it seems to dislike more than 2 HDDs on the IDE RAID controller - that gave me freezes under heavy I/O loads -but apart from that, its fine.
