Ha! This brings back some bad memories.
I built two computers around the same time, during the 2004 holiday season...
One was Intel, one AMD.
The AMD build was based on that Abit motherboard, and ran an AthlonXP 2400+.
The Intel build was on an Asus P4P800 Deluxe, using a Pentium 4 @2.5GHz.
Both had similar specs, in terms of storage, RAM and GPUs (Geforce 2 GTS).
Within a few months, the Northbridge fan on the Abit motherboard died a noisy and ignominious death.
After searching solutions on the 'net (including here!), I ended up getting a Zalman ZM-NB47J passive cooler.
Then, in 2008, the board committed suicide in a sudden and spectacular fashion: I turned the computer on, only to hear a pop, see smoke and smell burned electronics. I opened the case to discover several capacitors had bulged, and one had completely exploded.
Considering how many enthusiastic reviews of the NF-7S I'd seen before buying it, the whole experience left me with a bitter taste.
Meanwhile, the Pentium build is still working today - 18 years later!
I normally keep it in storage, but take it out occasionally to make sure it's functional, and in the rare occasions when I need something running on Windows XP.
