black dragon 2

hi everyone!!
its been awhile.
I am still waiting for the epox "6+ pro" but have started to look hard at the Soyo black dragon 2. all the reviews i could find on it said there was a problem with o/c ing in the bios, something about it would reset everything if you went into the "o/c settings. I noticed thier sight has a new bios to download. has anyone played with this board? if you have any info on it i would like to hear from ya. the reason i am so interested in it is the amount of things you can "hook up to it! 8 ide devices, 4 sata devices , 2 firewire devices, 8 channel audio ,4 gigs of dual channel mem! it seams like the list never ends! and the price is unreal, only $117 u.s. (at i like the expandability of this thing! ok, now that i sound like a "huckster extrordenair" can anyone help out? i will still probably get this thing for a "bread and butter system" but it would be great if i could slap in a xp 3000 mobile and "crank it up"
thanks for all your help!!!!!
overclocking is like raising a child, you do everything you can to make sure its right and hopefully when your done it turns out perfect......but your never realy
