I've been running their A7N8X Deluxe v2 a good 2-3 years. Bitching as hell at first with the Twinmos/Winbond memory (not BH5 chips though, CH5 I think) I bought with it, but bought a couple of Kingmax later on and the problems went away completely.
If you want a real solid setup, go with an ASRock. I found them to be the Kalashnikov of motherboards, but not the best performers . You'll probably get better performance with either a nForce2 or KT880 board though. Not tried any KT880 personally, but if they're less picky than the nForce2, I'd look for those first.

I was thinking about the NF7S v2....but shied away because of cap worries. I guess the problems have been worked out though. Hmmm.

You couldn’t get another 11mhz fsb out of the board so it was a "dud" and you won't touch DFI again, wtf.
I got better oc's with my dfi than a nf7s and a7n8xe deluxe (and consequently the ultra B I bought for a friend beat the abit and asus too).
Which means squat. It doesn’t mean abit and asus suck. I just had other problems with them not related to OC.
