Anandtech ran into it on the new uli agp/pci-e board, and hope a bios update
fixes it.

See their article.

The board is a bit new for anyone to have much real time experience
with it, isn't it?

Only one of them was from someone who actually has the board.

But he loves it.

And 5 Star reviews at NewEgg would mean what exactly? A lot of the time the
reviewers are new to building a PC and know not what they are talking about,
or they don't even own the product, like you stated. The ASrock looks like
it has some possibilities but it's to new to mess around with right now,
although for $70 it might be fun to play around with.

And I suspect that a lot of times, less than favorable reviews
are not published. I know of at least two, by two different
people, and neither were especially harsh.

It is their policy not to publish all the unfavorable reviews.

At least when more people who have actually used it report we'll know if all
the boards have cold boot issues.

Read the Anandtech review again!
Bios 1.20 fixes the Cold-Boot issues.
As i have the Mainboard myself i must say,great Board,but make sure it
likes your Memory,Infineon DDR400 wasn't its favourite and wouldn't get
to 400Mhz Dual channel when on Auto,had to fix it manually at 200x2
Mhz,no big issue but still a nuisance to inexperienced users i guess.
Bye,
Thomas
