Going to overclock this IVY Brige to 6.0 GHZ. I will be buying these items after summer, because I know that motherboard and CPU will be sold out in no time. IVY bridge comes out April 29th. What do you rate this rig? :D

I dont like the bulky CPU coolers. I have an H100 cooler in my rig right now and it gets to 30c on load. That motherboard only supports 2 graphics cards? 850 watt is same price as the 750 watt.

Allright, it's your choice.

But on the motherboard, there are 3 slots, but you really do not need more than 2 way SLI. Why? 2x 680's will smash almost everything, after the second card, the diminishing marginal returns are astronomical.

Really, in the end, it's YOUR system, so you can put whatever components you want in it.

What is the highest the I5 3570k can overclock to before it is unstable? I heard the 3770k can get pass 6ghz with good cooling.

Eh... Ivy Bridge won't overclock much better than Sandy did. At least that's what I've heard. Therefore, the 3570k should get 5ghz with good cooling, and the 3770k can probably get 5.2.
