I am getting ready to pull the trigger on this build but I havn't heard any info on the stock cooling on the I7 cpu. I don't plan on overclocking so do you think the stock cooling will be sufficient? If I do OC it in the future I will go to liquid cooling. I hope this rig will be fine for a few years thats why I am going to the new chipset. Also the only thing Im not sure on is the monitor what are your opinions?

I guess the Kicker is the new chipset we don'y have the options yet on this one. I don't plan on OC until I see some more options on cooling. Im sure there will be new stuff shortly. I am reading about Flashing the Bios on these new boards, I have no Idea what that is. How prevalant is this? I may hold off for a while until the bugs are worked out, or just build a Q9550 machine, what do you think? I may start a thread about this.
