I am looking at building a new pc using an XP2000 cpu on a gigabyte GA7VRXP motherboard. Should i be concerned about the lack of overheat protection missing as pointed out in some reviews(toms hardware)? I have no problem providing extra case cooling.

Yes... cooling with this motherboard is critical. You must have a very good contact with the CPU fan, and ensure your cooling is below 50C or else you'll get all sorts of errors.
