AMD boards are generally terrible(just like the processors). Got a DX48BT2 Intel Extreme series Board. ScReAmInG FAST!!!
VIA chipsets back in the old days gave AMD a bad name, there processor if used correctly were equal (reliability/stability wise) to an Intel, and at times better (Prescott/Smithfield vs A64 X2's) - Intel boards burned as THG found out within days of testing - i remember them killing at least 3.
Nvidia is responsible for making some flaky chipsets too, and for Intel too for that matter.
Only a noob would buy an Intel branded motherboard, we all know there overpriced and suck for overclocking, much better off with an ASUS or Gigabyte board - why buy and overclocker board with poor overclocking options?
Why so many noob fanboi's here lately this this one?
