Taking this point up with Mr VonBlade. At the same time as agreeing that testing stock is vital, OC3D does have it's roots in an enthusiasts approach to hardware, whilst regular reviews may be found all over the 'net, I don't think I'm alone in wanting the testers to hammer the hardware if possible.
Then again, u may expect that after the dust settles, a shoot-out between mobos may be reviewed.
EDIT: Seen the MSI X58 Platinum for £226 today, it's a bit of a difference.
