I skipped the Asus because of the chipset fan - I had a previous ASUS
board where the fan kept burning out after being very noisy.  It's a
shame, really, because this chipset does not appear to need a fan.  This
is also the main reason for skipping the nforce4 - I want a quiet system
(as well as various people complaining about poor documentation/support
from nvidia).

Thanks for the feedback, will do.  I had not previously found this link!
