    looks good to me. That's a pretty popular combination lately. You can OC the crap outta that thing if you have semi-decent cooling.

    Just to let u know, 2.4Cs generally acheive higher o/cs...not sure y, but it seems to be the case when comparing 2.4c with other "C" chips when dealing with o/cing.

    Everything else in that rig looks great..good luck and have fun building it...if its ur first time :x:.
