I am stuck in a predicament right now. For an extra $20 I would be getting 8gb of memory Gskill ripjaws. Is it worth having more than 4gb of memory? Anyone think Battlefield 3 will be a memory hog?

Motherboard doesn't really play all that much into you overclocks on sandybridge. I've seen people with the UD3 and they got higher overclocks than i got on my UD7. It's all in the CPU now.

Seems like your board is getting some negative feedback on double posts and other Bios related issues.
