I currently have the Maximus III Formula and the i7 860 and i have to say that this board overclocks like a champ. And yes it does have more features than most people will use, but its nice to have. The software that comes with the board makes overclocking easy even if you have never overclocked before. And having a board that automaticly adjust your memory timings/voltage/ to the most optimal settings is nice. Only had mine for about 2 weeks but i love it, running my 860 @ 3.6ghz(air cooled) runs perfect and runs cool.
