I know where your coming from man i really do, but overclocking is easy. Once you do it you will realise how just how easy it is and slap yourself for considering a Q6700, its a waste of money man. Save yourself the money, look around, no one here has a Q6700, theres a reason for it.

I dont know anything about that heatsink but most would recomend an Artic freezer instead. Dont know if a tuniq or thermalright could fit in that, but whoever post's next will probably tell you

And we already told you the q6700 is a waste of money. Overclocking is EXTREMELY easy and will save you LOADS of money
well just tell me, will the q6700 have petter performance than an overclocked Q6600 because money is not a problem and i dont know how to overclock

nope

I was bored and did this up for you
NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Great Technology, Service and Selection.

The parts are good however i still suggest building it yourself. You can select your keyboards and mice when you hit "continue" and add whatever else you want to it.

BTW, if money is no issue, and overclocking give you a headache just go with a Maximus formula, its idiot proof, just click on overclock in the BIOS menu and it will do everything automatically for you. But you can save some money by just learning how to overclock, its not rocket science.

P.S. i choose the artic cooling freezer pro as your cpu fan, would probably want to upgrade that if you do plan on OC'ing

depends on the overclock of the Q6600, i would suppose.
you can (obviously) overclock the 6700, too. are we talking qx6700? or just q6700? if q6700, no it is not worth 300 dollars for 2oo mhz. thats the only difference and you wont even see it. if we're talking qx6700 i would just laugh and say, "waste your (obviously)endless money, it is yours (or someone close anyway)".

just the q6700...i'd say its super moronic to get a q6700 when the q6600 is half the price and is only 266mhz slower... overclocking is super easy.. u won't even need a Voltage Increase to get it past q6700 speeds

wow thats a sexy setup, dam....

Anyway like i said, the maximus is a bit overkill, but if money is no issue, you will love that board. I would suggest a thermal right extreme Heat sink if you do plan on overclocking.

NCIX.com - Buy Thermalright ULTRA-120 Extreme 6 Heatpipe Cooler LGA775 Heatsink *Fan Not Included* - ULTRA-120-EXTREME In Canada.

i'm pretty sure it will fit in your case, anyone know for sure?
