And? There are a lot of people who own an original XBox 360, and have never had problems. Doesn't mean there isn't a mass problem with it.

While the issues with nForce aren't nearly as bad as the 360, it's been documents that nForce has issues. nForce 2 was friggin brilliant, and 3 was excellent as well. nForce 4 was utterly horrible out of the box.

I own an nForce 4 ultra, nForce 4 SLI, and nForce 650i Ultra. The north/southbridge fan on both NF4s died...repeatedly. The Ultra has become very unstable, while the SLI has been RMA'ed. The 650 doesn't like driver updates and causes BSOD/reboot cycles if you try to update the driver, ut is otherwise stable...for now.

It's luck of the draw. You've had excellent luck, I have not, but the issues with nForce are well documented.
