yah the reboot isnt really worrying me much. its the crackling sound im getting along with coil while at anything above 4.4ghz. if microcenter has these motherboards in stock, i would just say screw it and see what happens and run prime95 for an hour and see if anything blows up. but I really dont want to be without a computer for a week or 2.
The only X79 ASRock they carry is the Extreme4-M.
