My M59SLI-S5 can take 380Mhz on the system bus and remain very stable. Yet, I'm a technician so I can always take any board that has the basic guts and provide good cooling myself. Still my main thing with Gigabyte is that insurance policy regarding the bios.
However, I think I read somewhere one of those other manufacturers is using a bios flash feature that will let you plug in a USB drive with a bios update in it and you don't even need a processor!
Somebody here know which one it is?
Back to the topic, I will be getting whichever one of these manufacturers has the best mini board available when I have the disposable income to buy it.
