Im getting the CPU and cooler in a week or two.It's going to be a dual boot system Win 7 home on the 1TB and a Linux (haven't decided which distro yet) on the 500GB. I'm getting the graphics card in April or May. Anyhow how much ocing am I able to get with the parts I have bought and selected (reasonably)w/o going above mid 50s Celsius at 100%. Any Input on a Linux Distro I have used used Ubuntu and Fedora before Im aiming towards Ubuntu though. Oh and the CPU cooler is going to be in a push /pull config pusing air out the rear exhaust.

which cooler are you getting? the temps you get will be different in different locations. the only way to really know the temps is to test in your environment.
