Those mainboards perform very well and are generally stable. The only problem with them is the chipset fan. It runs at ~8000rpm and the bearings stop working after a month or so (in all the cases I've seen).

You should really keep an eye on that fan. If it starts to fubar, just replace it with some kind of 3rd-party heatsink and fan.

Yes, I have immediately replaced the chip HSF with a passive Zalman unit (NB47J) upon recieving that board for a pc for my sister. Those Zalman heatsinks are cheap, do their job well and are easy to fit. Just remember to turn the HSF when removing it, instead of pull (after you've detached the pushpins ofcourse), or you might end up with a nForce4 chip in your hands due to the adhesive power of the heat transfer paste.
