    I was originally going for the crosshair but just couldn't justify the price of the extra features i'd never use after I saw the asrock.

    as strange as it may sound, same.

    Yes, i would like to OC to sane levels (since this chip is 3.6Ghz stock in turbo mode, 3.8Ghz is hardly a massive OC) - but do it STABLE, without any weird issues or problems (like randomly clearing its CMOS, or not booting with 4 memory sticks like my P35 and x48 boards)

    i've had issues with every brand over the years :p i find its more certain chipsets/specific boards that have issues, and not the brands.
