Also I dont have a case or motherboard yet. Trying to get money for it. Probably going to go with the Asrock Z68 Pro3-M
I'm not sure about the Z68 Pro but the P67 Pro version had some issues. (I don't remember what exactly it was.... take a look at the xtremeSystems forum -->> Official AsRock Thread.)
So I'd recommend you to get any of the Extreme series. They are fantastic board for the price you pay and they are great OC board.
Also 212+ is good IF you can get it under $30 (including tax/shipping) or it isn't worth it.
It is good cooler for the Price/performance. So if you pay more than $30 it becomes not so good cooler for the price you pay. If you know what I mean...Edited by Tunagoblin - 7/19/11 at 7:57am
