I've researched the X38 DS4 and it seems like a good board and has all the
features that I want. I was wondering if the're any issues with this board.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
I plan on runnig an E8400, 2x1GB Corsair 8500C5 and a BFG 8600GT.

TIA,
john

Thanks. This is something I'll have to consider when I decide on a
purchase.
Asus Maximus Formula NB runs hot. Asus P5E has BIOS and sound driver
issues.
Seems like there's no free lunch when it comes to a Mobo.

This is normally run as a Linux box, but after reading this I booted
into XP pro, downloaded and ran the app.

No problem here with the GA-X38-DS4 Rev. 1 and the recent F4a BIOS.

I think it is a pretty good board, doesn't seem to like Crucial
Ballistix RAM but other than that no problems.

This one has been running 24/7 (at 100% load in its spare time for SETI)
other than upgrade reboots and dual booting to Windows for a couple of
apps since Feb, 2nd. 2008.

Currently running a Q6600 @ 3348Mhz
4GB G.Skill 8500
Palit 8800GT

Also check the Tweaktown Gigabyte Forums for a picture of the good and bad.
