Default Mobomobomobo

I'm really concerned about my mobo selection now. Everyone says go with abit and asus. I want a mobo socket 939 with 1 pci x16 slot, not an expensive sli! I am shopping on newegg and again the asus and abit are both out of stock! My choice is between chaintech and gigabyte. I need to know which one is a more reliable/better for overclocking board. From the reviews and votes on newegg it actually appears that the chaintech is the better board. There is also a very nice Foxconn board and an Epox. These are their stats:
