Red face P6X58D Motherboard

I'm about to purchase the P6X58D. I see a few people are using it. I'm just looking for comments, good or bad.

It's a very stable, high quality board. My new build went without a hitch, started up right away (unlike my previous experience with an Asrock X58 Xtreme - perhaps just luck of the draw). Even though I bought the P6X58D - Premium, if I was buying today I probably would have gone with the P6X58D - E version ($60 cheaper, better SATA III controller). My i7 920 is currently overclocked to 21 x 191 using only 1.21 Vcore. Pretty impressive - lots of other motherboards would have needed upwards of 1.3 to hit 4 GHz.

Thumbs up P6X58D

Yeah, it's good to hear positive reviews. I was wondering if the premium is worth the 50-60 $ more than the E model.

Edit: I think the cheaper one may be the way to go.
