Good build but I would replace the processor with e6550.

Krazyq how far have you pushed your e6550?

Cheers, im going with all that^ then except I want the E6550.

I trust in your belief that with the E2180 i can achieve the same performance for less cash but theres something about owning the name of a E6xxx series CPU that I want, y'know?

Thanks all.

I've got my e6550 upto 3.33 without any volt increase.

I could not get the fsb past 490.
And in order for me to have it at 3.43(my max possible) i had to increase my ram timings and increase the volts.
And for a 100mhz increase all that isnt worth it, so i just left it at 3.33 ghz.

And westy, its up to you, i was just giving you some money saving tips...but its your build.
The e2180 has got M0 stepping, which i think is better than G0, so thats what makes it overclocking potential so high.

But the e6550 is a great choice if you wanna get to around 3.0 ghz.

----BTW, i have my e6550 with the Tuniq Tower 120.

the m0 stepping on the e4500 and e2180 makes it overclock better than the B0 stepping 6 series (funny my CPU-Z says I have b0 stepping too.. oddness)

but its up to you.. some people playa hate on the e2180 because of 1MB Cache...
