Default GeForce 3 TI200 3.3v or 1.5v??

I called Asus directly, on this issue, as I was getting ready to slap
together a P4C800 with this card. They said it was 1.5V. Obviously, if
it's a 4x card, it should be. I just wanted to verify. This card fried 3
CMOS chips in 3 different P4C800 boards... I'm wondering if the voltage
regulation on the card is what it should be. Then, again, I am able to run
this card on a wIntel D865GBF without a hitch. That gets me to start
thinking that Asus's AGP bus interaction with CMOS is somehow more sensitive
or faulty, in some way. Statistically, it's unrealistic to think that I had
gotten 3 boards with bad CMOS chips. And, believe me, I systematically
deduced the problem down to the video card. Ironic, since I paid $280 USD
for this card 1.5yrs ago.

The funny thing is....it's a 4x card...

And, considering that the board it's on should be running a minimum of 4x,
the issue of 2x should not even come into the picture (pun intended).
Unless you are running a board that supports 2x? If so, voltage should not
have been an issue. My reply was based on the assumption of a newer based
chipseet, that does not allow anything less than 4x (more than 1.5 Volts).
My mistake. I'm convinced that Asus does not have their **** together, on
this issue. Just my opinion.

Covo stood up, at show-n-tell, and said:

I was having problems with a brand new Gainward Ti/550 (GF3 Ti500) so
emailed their tech support. They replied within 5 minutes (amazing!)
and said that it ran 3.3v as AGP 2x and 1.5v as AGP 4x.

(I'm still having minor problems with it but that's another
posting........)
