I'd say get a DFI motherboard, and a Big typhoon for a cooler instead of a xp120.

I used to be in love with ASUS, untill I OCed a DFI setup. DFI boards have a better build and aesthetic quality. DFI boards also have better/more OCing options that ASUS boards.

Yeah, DFI boards are made for overclocking. And their BIOS have the best options over any. The Asus is very good board but has very limited options for overclocking. And are very picky with everything.

Hey ASUS makes a great board, I have an ASUS with a VIA and it was more stable stock then any DFI I've ever used. A rock solid board when I get rid of my NF3 im going back to that VIA Deluxe.
