I'm interested to see how that Asus 790X works out if you get it, because I'm assuming it goes toe-to-toe with the Gigabyte 790XT, and that board seems to be in a real sweet spot for price/performance.

Added the cooler. Reviews said they OC'd my cpu to 3.2.... sounds about right.

Folks, you've been great. Thanks!
