Oh and I am using a mid atx case if that help with the cooler
You didnt' mention the make & model of mid-ATX case you have.
If you are interested in CPU overclocking you want to stay away from the H67 motherboards. Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3 / ASUS P8P67 or P8P67-M / Asrock P67 Pro for overclocking options
Hey WR2, yeah. I was just not really feeling to the other upgrade because of the fact that I didn't have an upgrade path that had any room. I realized this was cheaper and that the reason I wasn't getting good performance on my 6850 was because the x2 just isn't strong enough. The case is a xigmatek asguard II
I couldnt figure out what size CPU cooler would fit in the Asgard beyond a 110mm tall Zalman.
