A friend of mine who has the q6600 and that zalman cooler you were looking at has really high temps (like, 47 on idle clocked at 3.15), I'd say get the Tuniq or the true if you plan on overclocking, otherwise the zalman would be fine.

i must stress that u dont get the zalman if u are going to put it on high setting and put it in your room... it is the single loudest beast in my rig (maybe i have too good hearing but it sound like u are living 2 streets away from a freeway when it is turned on at full power...

as for the mobo, if u are not going to SLI then i suggest waiting a bit for the P45 (dont get the ASUS P5Q deluxe, been hearing negative comments for it's ram support and overclockablility) give it some time and there will be more p45 coming out

Haha, ok gezz I'll look into getting a tuniq

I do plan on doing SLI just not right when I get it.

Also I have never Overclocked before but I have read up on it and it doesn't seem that difficult.

i live in GA, and we've been having temps as high as 97F. Of course I have the AC on in here, but right now my Q6600 sitting at 3.6GHz is idling at 39-43; loads at about 55.

Tuniq is a good choice.

*EDIT*

Also the 750i FTW is a wonderful board. Just make sure you will not need more than 4 SATA ports.
check the link in my sig if you want some more info on it's OCing capabilities and OC results.
