Default Best MOBO?

Whats the best MOBO out there right now?

I think its the Asus Striker Extreme, what do you all think?
Does it have any compatability issues with any RAM?

The EVGA is getting all kinds of smack cuz of its bad BIOS and Raid problems.

What do you think??

I read that the striker extreme is very sensitive to overclocking, runs hot, and bios is not updated.

I read it over clocks better than the EVga and the Bios is good for newbies and has many features.

Uhmmm. Anyone else? does anyone have it yet??

Ok, thats it.

When people say they "read' Somewhere they Need to GIVE US A DAMM LINK TO THE REVIEW.

That being said I cannot Post any of the four boards I know of because Id simply be linking back to tech-forums and two other forums.

But if you read it from a site such as tomshardware. Then Link it. For the Love of whatever entity your believe in.
