I have the same exact one xept with SLi.

If you want a simple to use motherboard then I guess thats a pretty good motherboard. Come with game guru that gives you default overclockable speeds, but doesn't like you setting it higher than its highest default.

Also if you are getting that motherboard, the first thing you should do after installing drivers is to flash the BIOS. The latest BIOS fixed LOTS of bugs.

If you want to do REAL overclocking, this isn't the board for you, you're better off with MSI or DFI.
