Let's face it, this motherboard is not intended for the hardcore AMD Athlon enthusiast.  It lacks several features that most die hard overclockers look for.  These include; dual CPU fan headers, and voltage tweaking.  The placement of the second CD-ROM audio is rather annoying, then again it's unlikely that you'll be using that connector anyway. 

In light of all of that, the intention of this motherboard is not to appease the hardcore overclocking crowd anyway, it's simply a stable baby-atx motherboard focussed on SOHO and small and light multimedia use.  It's just fortunate that Gigabyte made a motherboard that is so stable for overclocking.  Gigabyte should be commended on producing a product that exceeds the needs of its intended market segment.  It's great when a company offers you more than you need, at a decent price.

Gigabyte has succeeded at producing a motherboard that I can highly recommend to users that are looking for a fast and stable motherboard that can help to cut on costs for their SOHO implementation.  So if you're looking for an affordable motherboard and don't want to walk down the path of doom (Houston Technologies) then give the Gigabyte GA-7VM a shot, you probably won't be disappointed.
