It's crazy all right, just check both of your pci-e slots. Mine came with slot 1 burned out, but it didn't affect slot 2 so I used that for 3 months and then that slot burned out. Not the graphics card at fault either, both slots went on 2 diff cards that work fine in a testing bench. The first slot went also before any overclocking was done on any component.
Don't get discouraged by my experience though. This is a killer rock-solid board as far as anything I've ever read about it, and I would have just returned the thing except that my new soundcard (X-Fi Extreme Gamer) doesn't fit with my SB waterblock setup. You need a pci card with no more that 6" total length or else you will need to do some fitting around any kind of aggressive SB cooling solution.
