Thanks for you sugestions and you help!I will look in other forum/threads..
I think u try and wait for the new 1366 mobos with SATA 6GB and USB 3.0
If you're going to do extreme overclocking then I'd say go with the Rampage II Extreme or the GENE.

If you want a moderate overclock for 24x7 work, I'd say go with one of ASUS' workstation boards. I have the P6T6 WS Revolution and it's been rock solid for almost a year. Highest OC this board has pulled is 4GHz (200x20) though I usually run it well below that for 24x7 compute jobs.
I have heard the P6T version has faulty RAM slots so beware..

I have heard that most of these problems were due to the user not configuring the RAM correctly in the BIOS. YMMV
