well the problems are basically intermittent freezes.....and the fact it won't OC as high...the NF4 has no problem with this, but I believe what happened was nvidia went to optimize the nf3 chipset to be compatible with ATI they fvcked up and forgot to optimize it for their own damn cards...

On my XP-M system my 6800GT maxed out at 430/1185 OC, with this nf3 chipset it maxes out at 415/1120 simply because the chipset doesn't like the bandwidth.

I honestly don't know how well VIA will perform over the nf3 you'd have to do a little more research on that.

Basically I've just learned to deal with the BS that comes with the nf3 chipset =/
how often are those lock ups? how bad are they? should i rule out an nf3 chipset if the lock ups are that bad? does it lock up only when OC'ing? i'm don't plan on overclocking, i just wnat something stable.
