Personally I go for the Lanparty boards and not the Expert as it is a little more user friendly. Maybe the best 939 OCing board available.

The expert is just that lol its a great board , lots of trouble with the first models but since has been fixed. The expert will offer better tidings as it has massive FSB abilities. Your basic SLI-DR is another GREAT board rivaled only by the expert. Either board will do you fine so get the cheaper of the two. There is also the SLI-d which is also the exact same except for the addition of a 2nd RAID controller. Any of the three boards will support dual core

The only reason I would go for the expert is that if I decide to run sli with 7900GTX's I could have 2 PCI slots left.

I just installed the Expert with a 3800x2, and I added the Evercool, very easy, and the Infinity cooler. It has been great so far. I have not had a single issue.. Board OC'd my 3800 to 2.7 easily. I say go for the Expert.
