If you haven't bought this yet, I recommend you switch the board.

Ya I already have the PC all done :\ I just started reading about issues with this board a little after my last post here. I saw a ton of positive reviews on New Egg and Tiger Direct before I got it and figured it was a good board. But now I'm starting to see that it has issues with vrm's going from overheating when overclocking. I think right now I need to get a solid case asap. Possibly next week. Then in January I'm going to have to look into and hopefully purchase a new board. Sigh... This sucks. What's a good solid board to replace this one? If I absolutely had to stretch it to $150, I would. But I'd like to keep it less than that.

I like the asrock extreme 3 970/990x (they have a good 4+1 vrm scheme)

He asrock extreme 4 990x is a better board because it has better vrms but it's pushing 150.
