Hi,

I'm planning a subzero cooling setup to overclock Q6600 Q0 @4ghz, I decided to go on the Asus Striker II Xtreme and mount 2xNvidia 280GTX on it, but then I've heard of the upcoming ATI models (that might probably end up being better) so I might consider a X48 chipset after all; what's the best pic?

I'm tempted with the Gigabyte GA-X48 DQ6, anyone has this board? has the BIOS improved over last iterations? I've heard there were some stabylity isues past 480 FSB...

Also, wich Kingstom/OCZ memory would you recomend me to archieve the 4ghz mark at a ratio of 1:1?
