An Aftermarket Cooler For My Q9550
Hi all,
I had just recently got a q9550
and an EVGA 780i motherboard,
and a G skill 4 gb ram kit.
I am looking for a cpu cooler for my build,
for I am planning to overclock the q9550 to 3.8 ghz
and I heard that the stock cooler, could barely get me to 3.2ghz.
Please give me some suggestions for a cpu cooler.
I am thinking about the vendetta...

Any of these will be perfect you: CM 212+ (make sure its the plus model), Xigmatek Thors Hammer, OCZ Vendetta 2 w/ crossbow backplate option.

Xigmatech Dark Knight (black S1283 w/ backplate). My Q9550 is running at 4 GHz with temps in the mid to upper 50's at 100% cpu.

I have an off topic question that i would wish to have answered.
Would my computer boot (Vista home premium 32 bit) if I didnt have a
videocard on my 780i.
Like does the 780i have some kind of integrated video card?

It doesn't have a integrated video card.
