im planning to build up my new system but i get stuck in finding the best mobo and cpu.
my first choice of mobo is XFX nForce 680i LT SLI
(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... =P450-9102
and i like a q6600 cpu.
but after reading some post here in LR i found out that 6/780i chipsets have trouble in ocing quad cores and its hot according to Fz1.
and i read the post of FZ1 building his sysstem with this ASUS MAXIMUS (SE). i like it...
1. how come he uses E6550 as his cpu insted of Q6600?
2. can i use Q6600 if i choose to get the asus maximus (se)
3. can i use a fan in cooling? coz im a newbi and dnt want to take risk using water cooling.
and if you have some suggestion in mobo pls do. im really stuck right now. cant decide wat mobo to buy. every mobo i checked have issues of something. need some help here!!!
