I bought a VIA PC2500 board a few days ago - this
new series of their mobos,

This beast looks nice - after replacing their cooling
system (that had a small fan on it) with larger but
fanless, -- it becomes a almost real PC (1500MHz CPU),
equipped with quite nice crypto and multimedia abilities,
but with very low power consumption and very quiet.

But the thing is - it doesn't quite work.

Try disabling CPU frequency scaling, VIA CPU's often have problems
with changing their frequency.

Furthermore, did you do any testing of the board before you took the
fan off? Was it stable then?
