That board you suggested (Newegg.com - MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail) does look very good. I think i'll change to it.

I think i'll go with the msi mb. What size fan is that which comes with it? I'll probably want to replace it.

Looks like a 40mm, to me.

yes pretty much all standard NB fans are 40mm. Why not just replace the entire HSF with one of these little things?

well honestly I don't think they are needed....but the Blue Ice is only 8 bucks and has a sick LED fan so I'm going to get one for my P5N-E when i buy it open box soon.

They do cool usually 4 or 5 degree better than stock which can help your overclock if the NB was overheating too much to get a good overclock.
