Default new mobo or cpu or both...

What would yield the most overclocking past 4.0?

Same mobo in my sig and a new cpu? my q6600 is decent with a vid of 1.215

Same cpu in my sig and new mobo? what is a great mobo that will utilize SLI?

New mobo and cpu for SLI?

I just cant seem to get past 3.92ghz on this setup I have now

yeah even 3.6 is good, you could wait for the new blomfields, but i doubt they will get to 4ghz for a while.

are there any other mobo's that can run SLI besides 750, 780, or 790's? i still get confused about what chipsets support that... i thought about getting the qx9650 when i get somemore money but im not sure if the 750I FTW can handle high fsb,but the unlocked multi sounds like it would do the trick. any thoughts on that? I also thought about the 780i FTW but not many reviews on it yet.
