I've seen quads on the board a few times, but only quad aces once or twice.

If you ignore card removal effects, then I think the probability of the board making quads is the same as being dealt quads in 5-card poker, which is 4164:1. Quad aces on the board would occur about once every 54,000 hands, if every hand went to showdown. (Which doesn't happen often, particularly when you consider that if two players see a flop, one of them is fairly likely to have an ace).
