Not great for overclocking, you could spring for a good NB cooler though, for ocing the intel are the best. although for you and your sli, this looks to be the best option. (and by that, ghetto slapping a fan on there

Ouch I think Ocing can take a back seat for awhile? Conroe at stock is already decently fast??

yeah but the e3400 is not as fast compared to the e6600, i suggest just making the jump to the e6600, because ocing is so limited on this board, and then you wont have to waste money on not using one of your gfx cards, and/or full potential, which would suck.
