Erm...

In terms of overclocking, the 9300 is terrible.

If you're staying at stock speeds though, there should be no debate.

The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro is probably the best in it's price bracket as is the TRUE. They target different price points but the TRUE is definitely the better performer.

You can use the Rampage board. It natively supports 1333/1600 FSB CPUs. This is using the QDR rating. So a 1600 is 400 FSB actual. But the board can OC quite a lot higher. My ASUS X38 motherboard (rated for 1333 native) can run a 530 FSB with only 1.49v to the NB. So that means it can run the CPU at 2120. Keep in mind that was with a dual core. The quad cores really limit a MB to 450 FSB (some can get up to 460-470FSB on high FSB NB voltage). So you will only be running a 1800FSB on the board.

Dont get the Actic Cooling Freezer if you are going for the Q6600. The cooler cant handle the heat output of the 65nm quad core.

I made the same decision last week, and what it came down to was a 30% price increase for a 10% performance increase (at stock speeds). I went with the Q6600 and am very pleased with my decision.

I also picked up a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 and am very happy with it. There was a considerable temp drop when I switched to it from the stock cooler.

If your not looking to spend too much, you might want to consider a Zalman cooler.
