Laymans terms...OC'ing on the AsRock is "safer" than the MSI board

Agreed. MSI's power delivery is not sufficient on that board, the first review I read for it had a VRM pop before they could even OC the CPU.

Okay thanks,I think I should go with a 890FX board anyway. Might persuade myself to spend the extra cash on a Asus Formula IV over the AsRock. Worth the extra £40-£60?

the msi is actually 4+1 not 4+2. my 790fx-gd70 has been going strong for a year now. i've used a 965, 1075t, 555, and sempron 140 on it with no problems. the vrm's will be fine if only using a quad, the thubans seems to eat these up. i've always been of the opinion that asrock uses the crap that asus won't put on their mobos. a red headed step child as it were.
