i got my Asus Commando for 3 or 4 months now and i love it.
got my E6750 up to 4Ghz and works perfect
it even has the option to save 2 bios settings.
i use one setting for 3.5Ghz (use that mostly) and one for 4Ghz (benching and testing)
before the commando i had a Gigabyte mobo and i feel stupid i ever bought that stupid gigabyte thing
the commando has some nice onboard switches (on/off-reset-clear cmos) and they work perfect

I think it's called CPU. If my oc fails, powering off and back on from a freeze will bring up a pre-bios screen with something like "overclock failed, F1 to load defaults, del to enter bios". I hit del, enter bios and sometimes just restarting will be a go. sometimes not.

I know that if the failure is severe enough, then I'll have to use the clear cmos button, (if you have one on your board), but that's only in rare instances.

Edit:

Not CPU, but CPR (computer parameter recovery???)

In most cases you have to reset (not cmos reset) to get it to post, then it will load defaults and recover. i.e. it doesn't work that well. clearing cmos is still the best and first option for issues posting.

Because you can't handle the 1337 power.
