well that's nice to know since i was depating between a x48 or 790i chipset. Looks like I will be going with the x48 and crossfire unless there is something new on the horizon.

I wouldn't rule out the 790i... I have a feeling this is not a very prevalent issue, and it probably only occurs when users do EXTREME overclocks. As long as you are reasonable, I don't think you have a problem.
Plus, Nvidia is much better than ATI for gpu configurations... so I would say stick with the 790i, or at least wait until the claims are validated if your ready to jump camps. People can be pretty stupid sometimes when they are messing with hardware, so we'll see.

Seeing as I plan to attempt some heavy oc'n this really turns me off to these boards. I won't be purchasing 1 till my case is done several months down the road so maybe they'll have the bug fixed by then or a better chipset out by then who knows. I would much rather run SLI than crossfire anyday.
