1st build please help! (q6600) - Page 3

post #21 of 39
hmm...
are you going to be gaming a lot?
what about an e8500 or e8400? I have one on a UD3P and it overclocks very high (I'm running it at only 4.05 because i want it to last long)

get the silencer 750. I have it too =)

for case i second the CM 690 idea, but if you buy it get 4-5 more fans for very good cooling (2 top, 1 or 2 side, 1 bottom).

You will most likely be better off with an e8400 over the q6600 if you plan of playing games. The newer q6600 dont oc as well as the older ones where as the the 8400 does oc well.

The Pi Black ram doesnt OC well at all. it will run CAS 4 900, but it tops out at 1015 with Cas 5. The G.Skill 2x2Gb 1066 for $59.99 is a much better choice.
