Yeah it's true, seems hit and miss though.
I don't have any random system freezes, only STEAM issues sometimes.

If you can can surf overclockersclub.com without freezes, you're ok.
BTW it's both the X38 and X48.

I have a problem with the DFI X38 as well. Power on, nothing on screen but everything boots. I read somewhere that its the Award bios so I picked up a Maximus Formula and hopefully fix this problem.

Did you try and browse the site that I mentioned?
Also do you have a link to the exact GeCube you have?

@ arcstrider, there is no known issue with the HD3870, only the X2

I'm just confirming what grunion has said. This board does not like the 3870x2. Some lucky souls manage to keep things in harmony but the majority of people are not having such luck.

I know its the x2, I have 2 of them that don't work with the DFI board, waiting for my maximus formula right now.
