Hi,
about to get my new build - just one question: i'm getting the q9450, any ideas what MB to get with it...
I'm thinking Gigabyte GA P35-DS4. I'll be doing some overclocking....

Just got my Asus Rampage for my Q9450. Haven't tested it out yet, still waiting for the heatsink to arrive... perhaps later today.

I've had a Q9450 on an Asus Rampage Formula (X48) for 2 weeks. Performs well, overclock so easy...a caveman could do it. Coolers? I've used my Zalman 9700NT, Xigmatek S1283, and finally a TRUE. If you don't want to spend the ~$300US for a Rampage consider the Asus Maximus Formula (X38) for $200-$250.

How does the Zalman 9700NT fit on the Rampage Formula? does it interfer with the mobo heatsink or is it just a tight fit??

It fits fine on the Rampage, easily, with room to spare.
