Default opinions on this mobo

GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview
GA-965P-DS3

Anyone aware of its problems /short comings ? I'm finding my current board to be limited a bit in ocing (mem voltage)wanting to change up, on the other hand is some other board better in the same price/class range in trems of overclocking .Looking for a more featured filled bios

thanks

Probably one of the best overclocking boards around to date! :)

Can't go wrong with it, people have gotten some pretty good results off that board.

I don't know but a lot of people got close to the 500mhz barrier with that mobo. It is a good one.

How young are your ears????? :)

I'm quite pleased with the Dark, but I'm not sure if they've solved the high pitched squeal that many of the boards they shipped to retail exhibited.
