Nice components. I was looking at the similar ones for upgrading one of my boxes. I just picked a different board. You apparently want to OC the i5K (water cooling). This is a pretty potent aircooler that was recommended - as an alternative.

Just be aware that Windows Home Premium supports only 16GB of RAM. So if you want to go beyond, you'll need a higher edition.

ADDRAM, my board will OC, I was just mentioning the vdroop if you are doing some major OCing. My board can OC easily, just wanted to make you aware because having a K chip and water cooling you can really push it. The original board will do 4.5 easy. Sorry if I caused any confusion.

I would just be careful listening to this Linnemeyer character as he's obviously a quack !

AddRam, download the manuals for the mainboards form MSI Global ? Motherboard

Review each one and verify this BIOS has all the settings you want. Again my board will OC easily, but the higher end one offer more settings like Vdroop for more control if you are planning heavy OCing.


And the Board that WHS posted is a pretty good pick.

I have Cooler Master Ice Fusion, but I think it`s garbage.

I`m not gonna do any crazy overclocking so that shouldn`t be an issue, dam I`d be crazy happy in the 4 GHz area !!!
