Q9450 & Maximus Formula or Q6600 & Rampage Formula

Hey guys! I'm having a dilemma with these cpu & mobo combinations. Planning to OC to 3.4Ghz on air and hoping to determine which of those would be a better stability combination. Doing graphics editing (cs suite) and gaming mostly. I'll be using the thermalright ultima 90 cooler coz it's probably my best choice for cooling since I'll be using a cosmos s case, so the true 120 wont fit

Thanks!

my pick would be the Q9450 and the maximus since you are on air the Q9450 produce's less heat the 8X multi does kinda of suck but you should reach a nice 3.4 overclock with no issues.
