If I have any spare cash in the next couple of months I'll probably take the plunge, because after selling my board and chip I could upgrade to SB for pretty cheap.
The only thing I hate about SB is that pretty much all overclocking is done via multiplier. That takes the fun out of a good, hardy OC via the system bus. I'd rather have to push the hardware using some skill rather than typing in a number in the BIOS.
