Default Best intel 775 SLI motherboard?

As the title suggests, what do you forum dwellers think the best 775 SLI motherboard is? I am considering going that route to capitalize on the folding potential of NVidia video cards. I would like to use either my Q6600 or Q9450, overclocked of course.

Thanks,
stoanee

Whats with all the negativity towards SLI motherboards? the 790i and 750i FTW motherboards are awesome, try the 790i ftw digital pwm if your looking to OC a quad, 750i ftw is great if your just looking to OC a dually and SLI (2x 16x instead of 2x 8x PCI-Es.) these motherboards arent like the older 6 series where they mostly just sucked, the new 7 series have really come a long ways in quality and overclockablility. Dont listen to naysayers!

680i, 780i and even the 790i chipsets ALL have their issues.

680i had hdd corruption then later most at one point will die due to NB stress and your lucky if it doesn't take any memory with you.

The only 7 series that is good is the 750i and that's because its a revised 680 board that seems to work better.
