I didn't even read these before I oredered cause I normally don't... but, these are pretty bad reviews:

Definitely contrasts the OCN reviews!

I'm afraid, now, and might have to refuse the package on monday? >.<

Yeah, I usually don't bother reading them. Just didn't expect to see so many for a board that I've heard all good things about!

I'm VERY weary of X38. It sounds good, but the premium is going to be high: DDR3 comes to mind first and foremost. I think all of the X38 boards are DDR3 which means you're going to pay for DDR3 + board enthusiast prices and whatever else to go with it.

As far as I knew, DDR3 has different Pins? As in, it won't even fit in a DDR2 slot or vice-versa?

The Gigabyte P35C DS3R has 4 DDR2 slots and 2 DDR3 slots, which pretty much tells me that DDR2 and 3 can't fit in the same slots. =P
