Question DFI Lanparty - unstable?

A buddy of mine was saying that he's heard the new DFI Lanparty boards could crash if you run it for an extended period of time. They overclock great I am sure, but are they very stable? Or is my friend just full of ****?

If you overclock it beyound what its capable of, it will become unstable.

Remember, just because its DFI with an awesome overclockable BIOS does not mean all your other parts become magic. Your computer performs as well as its weakest component.
Iraq... whee.

I'm also inclined to say he's full of it.

If they were unstable boards when run for very long, they wouldn't be reveared as such good boards from the OC'ing community.

Slap him!

The Lanparty is about as good as they come, he's probably assuming its the motherboard when infact its another component.
