well of course there's gana be more people with via boards reporting problems simply because more people have them. I know it's in good faith but ideally you should have a poll to try and find the percent of people with diffrent chipsets before going
omfg via blows without relizing the proportion of users that own a certain chipset board. Yah...
BTW, I've had my 9700 working on a SiS 735 Chipset and now on a VIA KT266a.
