My System Specs


Hyper 212 ($40) cooler on a D0 920, modest 3.4GHZ. Idle temps low 40s, high 60s (occasionally one or two cores 70-71c) on prime in a warm room, HAF case with good airflow.

Right now I would go with i7 x58 boards. They have been around for a while so bioses and boards are mature, and lots of info out there.

If it were xmas or late winter, I would look more closely at the 55 chipset and i5/i7 boards as they have some great features at decent prices. Real-life performance between the P55/X58 i7 chips are negligible IMO, but I dislike new boards generally...
