Default Is this a good Motherboard?

PLZ help me I have looked everywhere on the internet and on these forums for a review of this MoBo, but I couldnt find one. Is this MoBo good for overclocking and is it stable? I havnt even heard of the chipset b4 either...

THANKS FOR FEEDBACK

DFI Lanparty UT ICFX3200T2R/G RD600 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

looks good, but try to research some others as well, like the gigabyte ds3 and the msi p6n
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 1.3) LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
or
Newegg.com - MSI P6N SLI-FI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

should i cancel my order and get the gigabyte instead of the msi?

the gigabyte has only one pcie slot which is what makes me not want it but after my experience with msi, i may just take it into consideration besides it has lots of usb ports and sata ports and stuff.

should i cancel and get the gigabyte instead?

ok, but if this thing fails again, im assuming that its not the motherboard but something else. I cant have two crappy motherboards sent to me. So it would be something else i assume. Im hoping this will work as newegg only has 30 day return policy and thats from the day you order the items not when you receive it and to the day they receive the items returned not the day you shipped it to them.

Which is basically only like 20 days.

I would not want to waste $2,000+ worth of stuff and not get anything out of it.

DOA motherboards happen all of the time really with every company. I really can't see that it happening again.
