    Um, what Giga-byte mobo? I can't think of a Giga-byte mobo that excels beyond other brands.

    Interesting the cooler you have looks alike like the one GlobalWin released awhile back. I'm in the market for a new cooler myself..the one I have works very well just thinking about doing some overclocking now. I like the Alpha's but their sure a pain to put on and remove.

    Because if so, good choice. It's the best! I'm keeping mine in the firdge till my processor comes.

    EDIT: Omg I'm going blind. Never mind. Nick heatsink though.:drool:
    Post a picture please cuz I can't find which one it is on the website...but they all look nice.
