Default Best Overclocking Motherboard and Memory for 920 i7?

Haven't been taking a look at the newest technologies in mobo's and memory for quite a while now (since I finished my last build). Just wanted to know what would be the best motherboard and DDR3 memory for overclocking a 920 i7? Nothing too expensive, mobo under 350ish, memory under 150. And how does the q6600 rank against an i7? (what I have right now haha) Also, what is the best heatsink for a LGA1366? I am guessing a TRUE.

I Wouldn't go with a Core i7 ATM They are going to be discontinued very soon.

But Intel is suspected to produce Hex-Core processor to use the LGA 1336 core socket.

Isn't the second article from last year? The processor was supposed to be out last year? Also, wouldn't it be a good idea to buy an i7 now since their new processor will be more pricey and not as good of a deal?

http://www.gadgetadvisor.com/compute...core-processor-Sorry about that lol.

It's your decision, i was just informing that they are being discontinued and you might of wasted your money. I think the Hex-Core aren't going to be that expensive.

As of this point, i would say to go AMD

I see. Isn't six core a bit overkill atm? And they are mostly for servers right?
