Unhappy for SLI users ...

take a look here:

and here: http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/article/1784/

the problems are to be found in the chipset, not in the mobo (or its maker)

new chipset releases such as with PCIe Intel is always spot on, no issues, it just runs out of the box.
Shame that's not true though. PCI-Express has had a number of difficulties, and nVidia happens to have been one of the better companies. All new technology has difficulties. For those with short memories, perhaps various bugs in the Pentium series will remind people that Intel, like all other companies, is rarely spot on.

VIA had their issues with PCI, nVidia have issues with SLi, Intel's had issues with network cards and processors, 3Com have had issues with network cards, many wireless cards have issues talking to various devices.

Also, mobo manufacturers are required to fully support the chipset. Now from past experience I know of no mobo manufacturer that managed to get that right first time, again including Intel.

Seems like waiting for others to ride the leading edge is a good philosophy. And a hell of a lot less expensive.
