That 2x4gb GSkill kit is popular. I went with it also.

Noctua seems too big for me... but i know it's a good cpu cooler...

My friend have the v8 and he's pretty happy with it... If i'm not i will return or sell it...

And the other cooler mentionned at the end of page 1 are not available on newegg.ca (canada)...

I see a lot of people going with Gigabyte for the motherboard... is it better than the ASRock P67 Extreme4 ?
