i plan on overclocking my cpu high as possible with safe temps and will eventualy go crossfire when the 5870s get cheaper, 2 cards is most i want in future too, if that helps with mobo choice? also i cant seem to d/l english list of compatible ram for either mobo, only letting me d/l chinese version, no good to me that lol, so if anyone can confirm this ram is ok i would appreciate that, hope my heatsink fits too, Has anyone had experience with this combo of mobo and heatsink? will i need mod anything to make it fit? im pretty sure ram and heatsink is ok but nice to know for sure? but main thing is which mobo to buy? thanks in advance to anyone who replies

    Well thank you for ur time jack, i had also looked into the P6T v2, i just thought the P6TD being slightly cheaper would make it worth while, i will give the P6T v2 some serious thought now, as for ram that was the other ram i had in mind with me having OCZ in this pc im on now and had no problems with timings lowered, as for heatsink ive purchased the true already thru ebay, was a good deal at the time and ive got 1 on my q6600 oc to 3 (by choice) soon to be my daughters, as for fans i have orderd the scythe and a noctua vortex 1 ill benchmark em both to see which seems best, hd im getting the velociraptor 150gb and ill add a spinpoint f1 in near future, so thanks again for ur help
