1 - Simple answer, no.

2 - They're already out:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115011

3 - No, they both got great reviews:
Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188009
Graphics:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130072

4 - It probably won't work if you use stock cooling, get something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134
You'll be able to overclock to that and possibly higher.

5 - Work on your spelling!

1)dunno depends on card as n vidia are releasing software to do this apparently
2) quad core is already out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115011 thay just called it core 2 extreme
3)dunno havent used this combo
4) depends how good ur cooling is , and you would have to experriment but i would reccomend a phase exchange cooling system , read about it here http://www.hothardware.com/viewartic...?articleid=284

First of all, Core 2 Extreme is just a group of the fastest processors in the Core 2 series. It includes both dual and quad core processors.

Cooling like that will probably cost about $1000, which is crazy. If you really want to spend that much, go for it, and you'll be able to get it wayyy past 3 GHz, probably 5 or 6 GHz before the chip jsut can't take it any more. Those things keep the temperature at -20 to -30 degrees C!

i know i cant afford that type of cooling i was just sayin i wouldnt overclock a quad core as if it all went wrong i couldnt afford a replacement so if i was even gonna contemplat over clocking a quad core costing $1000 i would want some ultra cool cooling

why would you really use that kinda cooling. Just make a liquid nitrogen cooling system and you are set. Though that really wouldn't be good for long term usage, just because you would have to get a slave (or something ) to add more liquid nitrogen once in a while.

But for smart cooling solutions, just get a nice hsf if you want to spend money on new cooling. I have a zalman cnps 7700 and I'm pretty happy with it. Also from 1st hand experience I can say that scythe infinity is great, though it's HUGE.

the cooling doesn't really matter in terms of "something going wrong".
Doesn't matter what cooling you have, if you know what you are doing then things won't go wrong. Even with good cooling you can destroy the cpu. The only difference is that with normal cooling you can't oc it as high.
