  1. 3D simulations and rendering? Thats a very vague description. To what extent you plan to do simulations?
  2. The point is i would want a good core power.. :)
  3. which motherboard would be giving the best performance out of the specified ones..
    Also pls suggest due to high overclocking say 4.5ghz on 2600k will i be needing a corsair H100 or can settle down on some other cooling device.
