As for steppings I'm not sure what you will get, i think it's just luck atm I'm afraid, but from people that have owned both there has been no significant changes or any for that matter that affect overclocks.

Any opinions on the heatsink?

TRUE-120 vs CoolerMaster V8

After I buy the adapter for the TRUE for an i7, they are a very similar price.

The True is the better cooler.

the true definitely. or if you had the cash left over you could do some sick water cooling.

and if you got the money to spare i would get this ram,

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 6GB &#40;3 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1800 &#40;PC3 14400&#41; Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

and yes the silverstone PSU you allready have should suffice.
