Thanks for the reply.
I currently have a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 cooler on my Q9550 so I'll be sure to get something similar for the i7. Although I'm not sure on specifics so I'll need some suggestions.
As for the mobo, I've been a Asus guy for a long time so good to hear they're still doing good. I tried a couple DFI boards in the past but they didn't work out well for me. But again, I'll need some suggestions on what chipsets and etc are good.
Any distinct differences between the 920 and 930? Is the 930 "newer"? It looks like it has similar price with more clock speed.
