I wouldn't do any overclocking with 125W CPUs on 780g boards. Running those chips stock should be fine, but once you start overvolting you risk blowing stuff up.

So, I recently bought the A780GM-A as an upgrade to an older system I had. I had an Althon X2 5200 in the old unit so I got a board that would still support that and newer procs (i'm planning on getting a Phenom sometime soon). I liked that the board would allow me to use Hybrid crossfire, so I got it.

I set it all up and got it going, only to realize that the Bios wasn't recognizing any of my IDE optical drives. So, of course I tried different drives, different jumper settings, different cables, etc. etc. I even bought a new drive... I finally RMA'd it back to the company I bought it from and got a new one. Now with the new one I have the same problem, but I am able to get the BIOS to recognize my optical drive as a "Tape Drive" if I have the jumpers set to slave, or cable select.

My big problem is that I can't seem to get Vista installed from a flash drive (it always has a corrupt winload.exe error) and so I need to use the optical drive to get Vista back on the machine.

If you guys could give me any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it!

Oh, and I talked to ECS support (who is VERY unhelpful) and the guy said he would have to ask "headquarters" because he had never heard of it...

Clabern, are you able to get your hands on another optical drive that you could test with? How about a buddy of yours? The cables that you tested with were they brand new IDE cables or used?

Good luck
