Everythign else looks good, and id say if u own a dremel and dont mind modifying that bracket, go ahead and get the tuniq also...IMO its an awesome looking cooler, I have one on a q6600 that I can run at 3.4ghz with 1.47 volts so thats kinda high, and it keeps my temps to under 60c on all cores fully loaded.

I that video he turn the bracket side ways and it seemed to fit. Or would it still not fit? But what's the difference between normal and and putting it 180 degrees sideways? Thanks. Peace. Well sorry I know how to google it's just faster to ask on forums.

Would turning the bracket sideways cause it to not cool the heatsink? What heatsink though?

Alright man look, if you turn it 180 then it will make the fan face the top of your case and not out the back. If it faces out the back then the air can be exhausted immediately. Where as if it is turn 180 degrees then it will blow at the top of the case and it will take longer for that heated air to be removed. In your Tempest case (the antec 900 right?) it would be ideal for the fans to blow to the back of the case where the case fans are exhausting. So cut or grind the K8 mounting part of the TT120 bracket, and be done with it. It is serious 10 minute job and if you keep a cup of cold water handy then you can dip the bracket in the water when it gets to hot to hold.

The dual LAN thing honestly who cares and who uses it... sure it can be handy in some cases but LAN cards are like 15-25.00 so if you really need one then you can buy it. Maybe you can use one for the router to the internet, and the other as a crossover to another PC. Like having a direct connection to another PC/ Laptop.

Like I said man if you afford to get the UD3P then get it, if this is your last motherboard for a while then get the UD3P. If you could care less about ATI Crossfire and the extra LAN port then just get the UD3R. I know that picking PC parts can be a pain in the butt, but try not to make it to much of a pain.
