Both boards can..
Its not always about the board, there are many other variables, Temparture, CPU flexibility and quality, RAM and ones definition of stability.
Oh not to mention a good quality power supply with low voltage/amperage ripples.
Auto overclock features are not reccomended, good for newbies, but you don't want to stay a newbie now do you?

lol I am a newb to overclocking ><. Id hate to do it the "lazy/newby" way but I think its for the best as I would hate to mess something up.

Since were on this subject say I pick the Maximus Formula, What HEat sink fan that is reasonably priced would keep a Q6600 Temps cool @3.5/3.6 in a Antec Nine Hundred. Ram is Ballistix Tracers DDR2 800(4 cas, 4-4-4-12 timing)

Auto features are not as intelligent as the human care and tweaking. Yet.

They don't always understand certain settings or what you need them for, your intentions for overclocking, certain values may be changed that would go against your needs or Feel for the certain setup.
