CPU, Quad core i5

DDR3 ram
I need help to find a water block for the i5

My currents specs are a
quad core intel 775 water cooled
500gb sata hardrive

My idea Was to buy the i5 mobo and cpu, then buy the water block, then the ram.
Would I be ok using ddr2 ram?

That motherboard will work with the CPU and RAM, but the H55 chipset is designed for the Clarkdale dual-core cpu's, which have integrated graphics in them. The video outs on an H55 won't work, because the igp isn't there. A P55 board might be the better choice, as it supports the Lynnfield's architecture better.

Great choice on the CPU and RAM, btw.

If you go to an i5, you'll have to swap to DDR3 RAM.

Sorry, was gone most of today

That's an excellent board if you're not planning to go SLI/Crossfire. (The second PCIe slot only runs at x4)
