ive had many mobo's Evga 680i, DFI blood iron, Gigabyte X38 DS4, DFI X38(sucked) and my current board all in the last year or so and as far as
OCing goes the gigabyte is by far the best. there is a cpuz varification in my sig that was with the gigabyte it also took my E8400 to 4.7ghz

Got you. The best OC I have was on Abit and Gigabyte.

Thanks for the help all, my money came in this morning and newegg put the maximus back on openbox! So I pulled the trigger on the maximus, Q6600, and 4g Ballistix Tracers! Again, thanks for the help.
