I've had 4 great months with this board. Sure, it took some work to solve the various issues (BIOS & sound), it's been well worth it. The support I've found for the various issues has been great.
I'm currently using the alsa 1.0.10 drivers with this board with no squealing, over the SP/DIF output. I think the key is to add
options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1
to your modules.d file (or use alsa 1.0.11rc4 as the other poster mentioned).
Please don't curse this board because you were an early adopter. As such, you should expect to have to do some work to get it all going (in the current environment for Linux).
