Yes, I got a nice bump going from a Q6600 to a 920. Looks like a good setup, those D0's go to 4.0ghz easy. Just make sure you have a good cooling solution.

Vantage, make sure you run any in-game benchmarks too so you can see the difference.

You'll love the upgrade, and with a D0 you shouldn't have too much of a problem hitting 4.0Ghz or more.

If that is the vanilla P6T, it's what I have. It has holes for 775 and 1366 coolers. I have a True I bought for my 775 rig and didn't have to get the 1366 bracket. Also it does tri-sli and xfire.

Yes look around the socket in pic 3 there are 2 sets of holes. One for 1366 and one for 775

Ah sweet, Will save me money & time buying & ordering the Bolt-Thru-Kit if its the same board, Im aware its tri-sli and xfire but are all three PCI-E slots x16 or is one x4 speed?
