Which board? 8K9A or the 8K5A2?

Well, I want a new board to go with the 2400XP I am ordering. My dilema is which way to go. The 8k9a is suppose to have the lower multipliers unlocked, which is a nice feature since I don't feel like wrapping wire around pins. But, it does not have the history that the 8K5A2 has.
So, which way should I go? And more importantly, why?
I am running a Innovatek water cooler and some Corsair xtreme 3200DDR ram, so I want the high bus speeds.
On a side note, is there something wrong with the kt400 or is it just most people have the kt333 and have not tried the boards with the kt 400 yet? I remember being that way with the 266a I had when the kt333's came out.
Well, any help would be appreciated..Thanks in advance..

Oh, by the way, I am not new to the forums, I just have not posted in a year and can't remember what my old account was...
