    The X6 is cool and all, but overkill for most applications. The X4 955 may be a better option unless you KNOW you need the additional cores the X6 gives. Use a Hyper 212+ CPU cooler if you overclock either CPU. Otherwise you are in good shape!
  2. Thanks for your answer, about the CPU cooler I am not planing on OC for now, I'll use the stock one until i get a new one.
