I would like room to SLI the rig in the future and to overclock the machine now. THANKS
get the 780i or 750i for SLI. I have the 780i with the E8400 very nice combo there also for cpu cooler my ASUS Silent Knight II works fine but I would stick with Zalman. Note I can OC on this 780i to 4.0 GHZ + on air with the norhbridge chipset cooling fan on not of also the northbridge can reach temps up to 48C with cooling so definetly attach it
