    Get Asus, because stability and lifetime are better, not sure bout temperature, and I was never a big fan of MSI, heard a lot of bad things bout it from people I know who works with them. They might be a good company, but never tried it myself nor do I want to spend extra money on an MSI mobo that might screw up on me.

    Hope that helped,

    Cheers

    The latest version of MaximumPC has a review of some motherboards as do many of the previous issues.

    As you know Prescotts are like dutch ovens....

    but my temps run at about 40 C Idle and 54 C Load......

    The stack cool seems to make some difference, I haven't directly test this myself, but from all I have read about it it seems to help disapate the heat a bit and cool down the MB and thus the components as well.

    Thats a really nice board...Just a bit out of my budget so I had to go with the 915 chipset....and the P4-630 Prescott....
