I've read boot problem with SATA/Raid, and being sensitive to certain PSU. Otherwise, it seems to be very good in ocing.

I have not found a reliable C2D board- from what I gathered:
GB DS3 is 50/50 in reliablility
P5B with audio problem (vdroop is no big deal)
NV 680 too expensive
NV 650 half and half

This one seems to be a cut above. Yet, availability is still an issue. Hopefully, DFI is aware of problem and attempting to correct them before mass release to retailer.

Don't go for a 975x chipset if you're planning to buy a c2d lower than E6600 and planning to overclock.

If you're going for full stock, just pick a board that has the features you need (965/975/680/650 chipset) and isn't buggy

I wonder how many people that actually choose their system themselves run it on stock performance.
