Again, thanks to everyone for helping out and offering advice. He is happy with it and hopefully won't have to upgrade for a while.

Good luck! It's going to be awesome!!

You know I took a look at the NZXT Source 530 and that thing looks amazing! I love the fan header hub in the back, would make for some nice cable management options. Also, I switched the final purchase to the quad channel, thanks for the chipset tip.

What about the cheaper mobo and the better cooling?(should be good enough for 4.9ghz)

Unfortunately they are already on order. He didn't want to spend too much on the cooling as we expect it to be quite chilly in his basement setup and it's lower clock speed. Better cooling will be gotten when we are eventually going to OC the chip. For now we are going to stay with stock speeds.
