You´re welcome, Sandy should do just fine, so if have the $, I say, go for it.

Hi Guys, just to let you know, i have a 2500 and it overclocks to 4.0ghz, so its 'limited' overclock is not too bad, with the right cooler i could get it up to 4.4ghz and that's it. Thoug the multi seems to be limited to 38x even though you can set it to 42x in the BIOS
