well even this board is great IVY-B is just hirrendous,scary nd dangerous in terms of Temps bieng a 22nm 98*c @ 4.7 is enough to set a house on fire even @ stock the 6 core 3960X nd 2600K outclasses it by a good margin but performance is great..no doubt in that so basically one have to sacrifice temps for performance...

i hope intel comes up with a new stepping but this has been touted earlier that IVY-B would be fail in temp dept...
