I was going to wait on sandybridge but I want my computer yesterday so I went ahead and ordered an i5 760 for my gaming needs. I want to OC it to 3.5ghz or possibly 4.0ghz want to make sure my cooling is going to be sufficient though. So here is what I have. will this keep my cpu nice and cool?

Yeah that PC will be rock solid on near stock voltages just upping the BCLK to 160 so you can run the Ram at 1600mhz also. You can have up to 160 x25 = 4ghz with Turbo on i would suggest keeping that instead of a static OC. What PSU did you get?
I got a Corsair 850TXV2 its not modular but it was only 139 and I wanted to make sure I had enough power.
