all the 790x motherboards have slight issues. It seems to be a case of how good the company's relationship is with AMD, as the problems seem to be quirks in the chipset. The asus one I am using in particular is extremely finicky, you need the exact perfect settings to get it to run properly especially while overclocking. I'll be picking up one of these at the end of April, or whenever the price comes down to the us price.

I'm starting to wonder if the ninja copper will be enough for it....

I cant wait for the next line of Phenoms hopefully they start clocking at 2.8 and above i dont wanna build a computer with less that 3.0 ghz and yes i know not many applications use 4 core cpus but going from my Amd X2 4200 2.6ghz i need to aim for something and i got the Amd X2 6400 at 3.2 which is a sweet machine so 3.0 quad core is my dream machine.
