i want to get it on day 1. but im wondering how long does it take for a new chipset to mature??? to iron out bugs etc.

how long should i wait to get a good board? has there been mobos bought on launch day that work perfect for years after?

My general rule is wait a little while (1 month or so) for stability purposes and to make sure everything is a-ok with the new tech. just my 2c
