You probably need to post a little more (and coherent information) before you're going to get a reply. Maybe let us know -
- Which Maximvs Extreme? The original (X38 IIRC), or (presumably) the current Maximvs III Extreme using the LGA 1156 chip.
- How much money are you willing to put into the CPU? Are you overclocking the CPU or using stock speeds?

Here's NE's list of 1156 processors, maybe this will get you started:
Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware,CPUs / Processors,Processors - Desktops,Intel,LGA 1156
