do not buy this board. it handles HTT and RAM pretty lousy when it comes to OCing, despite the fact that it was made especially for the "enthusiast" crowed.
you read it everwhere people manage to OC the 3700+ sandiago to 2.8ghz out of the box and with minimal effort, without any hassle, with my MSI K8N, i barely do 2.65, and its still shaky.

ontop of that, i got an OCer friend, he has his own lab and he reported 4 MSI K8N boards actually exploding and scorching ram and cpu ..

im going to sell mine, and get me a DFI LANPARTY board, beh what a huge huge huge mistake it was to get the MSI board.. grrr
