The DDR RAM I was waiting for is now available - the Corsair XMS2400 will do 150 MHz DDR @ CAS2. It won't do me any good without a motherbaord, though.

Are there any great DDR boards yet? From what I've seen around the web, the Asus A7M got discontinued (or is just very rare); the ALi Magik, and therefore the Iwill KA266, still has some compatibility/stability problems, and the Via KT266 is just not ready for prime time.

On top of that, most of the new Socket A mobos use the Via 686B southbridge that is giving a lot of people trouble when using a SBLive or burning CDs.

Here's some of what I'm looking for:

FSB settings (and stability) up to and over 150 MHz
NO compatibility problems
multiplier adjustments
onboard IDE RAID
voltage adjustments

Are there any DDR boards that fit the bill, or any coming up? I've heard of the Iwill KA266 Plus and MSI K7 Master Turbo, but I don't know anything but the names so far.
